Looks like Robert Redford's on the run again in The Company You Keep.

Looks like Robert Redford‘s on the run again in The Company You Keep.

Starting off the day with a quickie here. Put simply, Robert Redford is one of those people I’ve come to trust over the years. Whether he’s in front of the camera or behind it, generally the movies he’s chosen to involve himself with are at the least interesting, and at best classics Whatever the genre – Political Thriller (All the President’s Men), Sports (The Natural), Spies (Three Days of the Condor), Animals (The Horse Whisperer), Conman/Gangster/Comedies (The Sting) – and I could go on and on and on, he always seems to bring something fresh and entertaining to it. Simply put, this is a guy who makes good decisions when it comes to the material he takes on and what he does with it. (Yeah, there is The Electric Horseman, but it was 1979 and he was riding the zeitgeist or something like that – work with me here, okay?)

Anyway, with a resume like that, there’s no doubt that I was excited to see this new trailer for his upcoming thriller The Company You Keep. And with a cast list that includes Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, and Susan Sarandon, it’s obvious I’m not the only one that trusts the man and his choice of material.

The trailer itself? Well, obviously you can watch it for yourself below, but I’ll just say it looks to me like Mr. Redford is delivering again. This is one that’s definitely jumped up pretty high on my “hotly anticipated” list for this year. With a limited release scheduled for early April here in the U.S., and a wider release to follow, it may be awhile off yet, but I have a feeling it’s going to be worth the wait.

But why take my word for it? Go ahead and take a look for yourself.

So what do you think? Another winner? And what other movies are you looking forward to this spring? Be sure to let me know in the comments below.

Until next time, Happy Viewing!

Because Sometimes You Just Have To Get Started

I hadn’t intended for this to be first post on here, but it’ll do for a quick trial, and I was curious how the video posts would look.

I didn’t realize just how overused this particular meme had become until I watched this video. In a way it is interesting to see the different variations and how some creators have at least tried to vary it up a bit and play with our expectations instead of simply using it for shock value, though I do have to wonder just how much actual “shock” can be left when my admittedly quick on the uptake 12 year old daughter Hannah (about/from whom you will certainly read more as time goes by, along with my other kids) and I were watching something the other night (I forget exactly what) and as soon as a particular character stepped off the curb and turned she simply said “Bus.”, and sure enough…

Still, there is a certain fascination in watching the 12 minutes (!) of this play out and realizing just how many times you really have seen this exact scenario play out. And, as a bonus, it also serves to get things off and running here.

I’ll be back soon with more, but for now, happy viewing!
