This last couple of weeks have been crazy ones! I have been planning/working on an upcoming event for work and have had little time to post on IMHB and this makes me very very sad. During this crazy time Zach Braff and Entertainment Weekly released a stream of the Wish I Was Here Soundtrack. This is some SERIOUSLY awesome news, unfortunately I am a little late on sharing it with you. To be honest I hadn’t even listened to it myself until today. I can’t tell you enough how warm and cozy inside it made me feel to hear all of the reasoning behind each and every song on the soundtrack (if only he could’ve done this for Garden State). I had chills goosebumps and even shed a teeny tear or two listening to Braff talk so passionately about the music and his film. What a cool guy he is! Please take the time to listen to this start to finish, you won’t regret it! And just in case you are NOT keeping track…only THREE more days until the movie premiers! Get excited people!

Bon Iver wrote a song for the new Zach Braff film “Wish I Was Here” and it has been released! I am so excited about this film you guys. The soundtrack is a major reason why because we all know (cough *Garden State* cough) that Mr. Braff always comes through when it comes to sweet sweet music!
Hey guys! It’s been almost 3 months since Zach Braff’s new Kickstarter project “Wish I Was Here” premiered at Sundance Film Festival and FINALLY we get a trailer to go along with all the hype. There isn’t really much dialogue in the trailer but the cinematography looks very impressive and Zach couldn’t have picked a better song to lay over it. He went with “Simple Song” by The Shins which is off of their most recent 2012 album “Ports of Morrow”. He seems to really love The Shins, if you remember he used two of their songs (“New Slang” and “Caring is Creepy”) in his first film Garden State which really helped the band get recognized. Wish I Was Here will be release July 18th. I can’t wait until we get another trailer and some clips perhaps? Check out the very first trailer for what is sure to be one hell of a film….
During the Grammys this past Sunday, a new song by Lana Del Rey was revealed in a new version of the Disney’s Maleficent trailer. It’s a new dark take on the 1959 original “Once Upon a Dream” (which if you listen to it sounds like it’s literally sung by a bird). Lana’s version packs just enough creepiness to match the theme of the Disney movie set to hit theaters May 30th this year. I don’t know about you, but this trailer and song make me even more excited to see it, let’s just hope it doesn’t turn out like Snow White & The Huntsmen when the trailer looked amazing and them movie was boring. I doubt that will happen if Angelina Jolie has anything to do with it!
Rarely do I get out of a movie and want to run home and blog about it but this time around I just couldn’t help myself!!! Ever since I saw the trailer for Warm Bodies I started counting down the days until it came out. Not because it seemed super intellectual or thought-provoking but because it looked hilarious and cute! The movie is set in the post-apocalyptic future where there are humans (who are kept inside a huge steel wall that wraps around the center of the city), zombies (who for some reason reside in the local airport), and boneys (what a zombie turns into if they ‘give up’/flesh hungry skeletons). The main character is R (played by Nicholas Hoult) is a zombie (also the narrator and a hilarious one at that) who lives at the airport with the other zombies and boneys who leave them all alone because they’re already dead. R is not like the other zombies though, he wants more out of life than wandering around grunting and eating humans. During a trip the zombies take to sniff out some humans to eat, they find a group of teens in a pharmacy and go to town. This is when R meets Julie (played by Teresa Palmer) who is the daughter of the leader of the humans. He takes her back to the airport and he starts to ‘thaw out’ and become more human as the movie goes on. I’m not going to spoil the rest but it had an awesome ending! This is coming from someone who really doesn’t care for anything that has to do with zombies (no Walking Dead for me). Aside from the awesome story there was another HUGE pro to this movie: (after the jump) Continue reading
So last night I went to rent a movie..I had never heard of this one but I always trust Sundance films and almost always like every one I see. If you like really strange, kind of sad movies…chances are you will probably like this one. This is somewhat of a spoiler and somewhat a review..so you’ve been warned.
It’s about a young student in her teens who on the night of the discovery of another earth, drives drunk and while looking up at the stars and not the road, crashes into another car and kills a man’s pregnant wife and his three year old son. The crash puts the man in a coma and the drunk driver Rhoda in jail. Fast forward to four years later Rhoda is just getting out and hears of an essay contest to be sent to the “Other Earth”. Rhoda who is living like a guilty zombie decides to enter. She finds out where the man who was in the accident she caused lives and goes to him to apologize. She get’s nervous and instead pretends she is part of a cleaning service and that offers him a free trial. After the trial is over he decides to hire her as his weekly cleaning lady. As time goes by they become close and inevitably fall in love with each other. Rhoda wins the trip to the other Earth. She then goes to the man to tell him the truth of how she killed his family and she gives him her ticket to the other Earth hoping that when he goes there he might be able to see his family again.
When this movie started I was a little bored because it moves a little bit slow particularly because when the main character Rhoda gets out of jail she lives her life extremely depressed and haunted by what she did. After watching till the end I definitely recommend this movie.
