FX renews ‘Fargo,’ ‘Louie’


At first I wasn’t digging the idea of a Fargo TV show. For one has any TV to Film adaptations done well and two was it going to work without the Coen Brother’s touch. Simply yes it worked out well. Though I feel some of the show was a bit stretched out to the extreme it managed to work as a whole. The story was juicy and the acting was incredible and managed to use references from the movie without having to rely on them. I’m happy that it got renewed and I am excited to see where they are going to take it.

Louie is another one of those shows that I absolutely adore. It is due to Louie C.K.’s cynical deadpan comedy that feels real and genuine. His show touch on issues that everyday Americans face and isn’t some super fabulous lifestyle that no one would ever live. He is a master of comedy and the show thrives on his NSFW approach to everyday life.


Foxcatcher Trailer



Having seen both of Bennett Miller’s features before this, such as Capote and Moneyball, I’m seriously dying to see what he puts out next. Foxcatcher looks to be his best work. It has all that someone could ask for; a dark story of murder, Channing Tatum branching into more serious territory, and a near unrecognizable Steve Carell. Though pushed back from last year it seems like it may have been the best idea from the studio. As soon as it premiered at Cannes in May the buzz for this one has propelled this movie to the front of every Oscar predictions chart.

Foxcatcher tells the story of the Olympic wrestling duo Mark and Dave Schultz (Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo) and how paranoid schizophrenic John du Pont (Steve Carell) committed murder in the name of the sport.

Foxcatcher is directed by Bennett Miller and starring Channing Tatum as Mark Schultz, Steve Carell as John du Pont, Mark Ruffalo as Dave Schultz, Vanessa Redgrave as Jean Liseter Austin du Pont, and Sienna Miller as Nancy Shultz. Produced by Megan Ellison and released by Sony Pictures Classic and Annapurna Pictures.
