Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

I’ve been obsessed with Bates Motel ever since the show started so when Kevin shared with me this trailer that stars one of the main characters, I was more than just a little excited. This looks like a good one!

Billion Dollar Bully Slams Yelp

It’s pretty crazy how often I find myself using Yelp. If I’ve never been to a restaurant before, I completely rely on them to give me honest reviews. Since I’ve used it so much, I guess I never realized the backlash that the company has received from other business owners, but it makes sense. In this new documentary, local filmmaker Kaylie Milliken questions Yelp’s business practices and conducts interviews with business owners who feel their businesses have been vastly impacted by the types of reviews that are found on Yelp about them.

I’m actually really interested in watching this. The film is halfway done already.

The Hunting Ground

Describing the fallout after her assault, one Harvard student says, “I went to the dean of students’ office and she said, ‘I just want to make sure that you don’t talk to anyone about this.'”

Directed by Kirby Dick, The Hunting Ground tells the story of how major universities across the country are looking the other way when it comes to women getting sexually assaulted on campus to protect their name and their brand. I’m very fortunate to have gone to a school where this wasn’t a huge issue, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen outside of school. 1 in 4 women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime and you should never tell anyone that this happens to to stay silent. I think this film is going to be very important and I think it sends such a strong message to both universities and other young women that could potentially find themselves in a situation like this. The film will be released February 27th in select cities.

True Story

This is the first time I’m ever seeing this trailer or hearing anything about this film and when I first saw that screenshot, I really had no idea what would be ahead. This feels like a different film entirely for James Franco and Jonah Hill and I’m a little bit excited about it.

Pitch Perfect 2 Movie Trailer

Only a day after we revealed the poster for Pitch Perfect 2, they released the trailer. And now we’re just pretty excited for 2015 to come.

Cinderella (2015)

Since the trailer for Disney’s newest version of Cinderella was just released today, there was no way we weren’t going to post it to Yow Yow! It’s definitely not anything like what I watched as a kid. I know the quality of that was pretty bad and it was completely old school, but I’ll always hold that version near and dear to my heart. I will most likely still end up watching this one in theaters though as I know a lot of my friends will be too.

It’s Not Over

It’s really no secret that I’ve been a huge fan of Andrew Jenks since I first laid eyes on him. I loved his television series on MTV and at what point even asked myself what I needed to do for him to hire me so that I could just work alongside him post grad. Yeah, I was getting all sort of creative because I wanted to reject having a normal job way back when. In the years after his show, I have continued to be impressed by him and am excited to learn that he has a new project brewing up. In his new documentary “It’s Not Over,” Andrew follows three young individuals who are HIV positive. You can learn all of the details about the film here. I’m looking forward to catching it on Netflix soon!

Review: Big Hero 6

The first time I saw the trailer for Big Hero 6 was a couple months ago. I don’t remember much from it except for one scene in which the big marshmallow of a blob is taping up his holes which are making a whistling sound at a police station. Truth: It’s still funny watching that scene months later.

I can’t remember the last time I loved a Disney movie this much. It’s right up there with my Aladdin, Mulan, Lion King, and Monster’s Inc. I think, but if I were a kid watching this movie, I would beg my parents to take me to see this movie over and over again. In fact, I think we’re already looking forward to seeing this movie again – but this time in 3D!

I’ve got a list of reasons for why I love this movie and am rating it a 10/10. I’ll do my best to not spoil anything for anyone!

  1. The movie takes place in a made-up city called San Fransokyo which is a hybrid of San Francisco and Tokyo and it looked awesome. I wanted to live there.
  2. Diversity! The characters in the film come from varying backgrounds and the main character Hiro Hamada is actually half-Asian.
  3. Prior to watching the movie last night, I knew nothing about the plot. As soon as I learned that this was revolving around tech, I felt a little bit more at home!
  4. Though a Disney film, the story actually comes from a Marvel background.
  5. I laughed so hard that I ended up gripping the arm of the person that I brought along with me. And when I cried, I was a wreck. The best part about this film was witnessing the relationship between Hiro Hamada and his brother Tadashi because there’s something about sibling relationships that really tug at my heart stringsa bit and I think it’s one that most people can relate to if they’ve got a relationship like those two.

I’ve included the trailer below, but it really doesn’t do the film any justice at all. You might even be better off not watching the trailer at all and just going straight to the theater to watch the film.

A Most Violent Year Movie Trailer

I hadn’t heard anything about this movie before watching the trailer. I’m a fan of Oscar Isaac though and am intrigued by Jessica Chastain’s role in this film.

Taken 3

I can’t believe I still enjoy these movies, but Liam Neeson is just too good.

Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer

Well what kind of blog would we be if we didn’t post this trailer as it was released today? I don’t really understand the hype around this movie or these books. Though I haven’t read the books myself, I had a number of people tell me that it wasn’t well written and that they didn’t enjoy reading it. That’s what my friends said about Twilight too, but there were still so many people watching that. I had to watch the trailer because I was intrigued. I figured if it was being released on The Today Show that this had to be a big deal. After watching the trailer, my views on it haven’t really changed. The film is being released on Valentine’s Day of next year – nearly 7 months from now! This was just a 2:25 minute trailer and everyone went nuts. There’s not much else to say about the weird sounds at the end… didn’t that just remind you of some kind of a horror movie?

What If…

Daniel Radcliffe gives romantic comedies a try! I don’t know how I feel about the plot actually, but I’m a fan of Zoe Kazan and am interested to see her in it.

I will watch anything with Chloe Moretz.

Wish I Was Here

It feels like just yesterday we were learning about the news that Zach Braff was making a new film and funding it through Kickstarter. Well, we’re happy to announce that the movie was finally made and will be released in theaters this coming July. “Wish I Was Here” is kind of like the unofficial/official sequel to Garden State. We’re not really sure what the film is about, but it has that same indie/mysterious vibe that Garden State once had. Literally, the trailer gives nothing away.

Begin Again

It’s kind of almost like The Voice sponsored a movie. How they got a pretty good lineup of actors/actresses is confusing to me. Would you guys watch this film?

The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.
