The Accountant

Something kind of caught my eye with this trailer and it might be because it eerily reminded me of Gone Girl in some way or that it was another thriller which we seem to love. It’s not Ben Affleck though cause like meh. Here’s a synopsis below that I did not write.

The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow and directed by Gavin O’Connor.

Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

2016 Oscar Nominated Shorts

Manan and I did something really fun yesterday that I’ve never done before. We went to the theater down by the Embarcadero to watch all of this year’s Oscar nominated shorts! Now, every year most people just care about who’s going to win Best Picture or Best Actress or Best Actor and the shorts don’t get that much action. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an Oscar nominated short previously so seeing five this year at once was a big deal to me. Manan told me that even though they don’t get a lot of buzz, there’s something really incredible about them. Because they are considered shorts – the people behind them have to make sure that everything is explicit and pretty straightforward since you’re not getting a lot of context. These all varied in length too some at just 12 minutes and some up to 30 minutes.

This year’s nominations:

  • Ave Maria
  • Shok
  • Everything Will Be Okay
  • Stutterer
  • Day One

At the end of it all, Manan and I asked each which one we liked the best and which one we thought would win. We both were in agreement; we LOVED Stutterer, but we think Shok will win. I read some predictions this morning that some people thought Ave Maria or Day One would win, but Ave Maria was my least favorite of the brunch and Day One was too unrealistic for me and not believable one bit.

What We’re Listening To:

On Friday night, I caught the last 10 minutes of 500 Days of Summer after watching a series of shows that I was catching up on. I don’t know if anyone else, but me feels this way, but this film is definitely one of my favorites. I think it tells such a simple, straightforward, but also complex story about love and relationships. Too often after a breakup, people are always looking for a reason for why things ended. Honestly, I have totally been that person. BUT I have also been on the other end where when my friends had asked me my reason for ending things and I have said that I just knew it wasn’t a fit the same way that Zooey’s character did.

Regardless of all that, this film has an extraordinary soundtrack and one that I listen to pretty often. I hope you’ll all enjoy it as much as I did!

The First Monday in May

!!!

Oh my goodness, watching this trailer just gave me all sorts of exciting goosebumps! The Met Ball is something that we’ve been highlighting on Yow Yow! uh since this blog was born and it is THE biggest night in fashion of the entire year. I’ve always loved seeing all of the celebrities and designers on the red carpet and I’m even more thrilled that there’s a behind the scene documentary being created for it. This reminds me a lot of The September Issue – which just happens to be one of my favorite documentaries also.

The Girlfriend Experience (TV Series)

The first time I ever wrote about “The Girlfriend Experience” was back in 2009. Back then porn star, Sasha Grey, was the lead actress in a film with this title. She played a call girl who was living a double life. I actually found this film to be pretty fascinating and no – it wasn’t at all a porno like people may be quick to think. It was done really well which is probably why Starz is now turning it into a television series. Above is the trailer and it’s very similar to the movie, but it will be interesting to see how each episode is played out. Both the tv show and movie are tied to Stephen Soderbergh who is the producer for the new tv series out next year: For comparison, the movie trailer featuring Sasha Grey is below:

Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong Trailer

I actually heard about this film a few months back, but this was the first time I’m ever seeing the trailer. When I was growing up Jamie Chung was the Real Worlder I aspired to me – mainly because she was Asian American and pretty tasteful when she appeared on the show in the San Diego season. I also have always loved Bryan Greenberg since his days on One Tree Hill. Who didn’t love Jake AMIRITE?! The two are actually engaged to be married in real life and while I’ve seen them in photos and stuff, I’ve never seen them working together so it will be kind of cool to see how their chemistry translates onscreen.

Room – Trailer

Based on the best-selling novel by Emma Donoghue. A woman is being held captive with her five-year-old son in a single small room for years.
Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, and starring Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Joan Allen, William H. Macy

Just enough of the trailer to get you interested. I love Brie Larson though so I have no doubts that she won’t do a fantastic job in this.

The Stanford Prison Experiment

I’ve been hearing about this film for quite awhile now so it’s great to finally see the official trailer. I think this is going to do quite well actually and I’m looking forward to seeing it in theaters.
