movies-score.blogspot.com Paris 36 Faubourg 36 posterSpring 1936 - in a working-class district in the north of Paris, a neighborhood that probably had a name once but that everyone now simply calls the Faubourg.
In early May, three inhabitants of the Faubourg, show-business workers and close friends, do not share other people's wild hopes, the Chansonia, the music hall that employed them, closed down four months earlier, leaving them all unemployed. Pigoil (Gerard Jugnot), a stage-hand, Milou (Clovis Cornillac), a hotheaded electrician and a skirt-chaser, and Jacky (Kad Merad), former sandwhich man at the Chansonia.
Supported by the locals who live to the rhythm of Monsieur TSF's (Pierre Richard) radio, the three friends decide to take hold of their destiny; they try to force the hand of fate by occupying the Chansonia and producing the "hit" musical that will allow them to buy the place. Each one of them has different motives but they all share the same goal: finding new balance in their lives.
In addition to their lack of experience, they have to deal with the hostile antagonism of the neighborhood "godfather", Galpiat (Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu), and come to terms with the arrival of a mysterious and attractive young singer, Douce (Nora Arnezeder).
The dream of a whole neighborhood, can the Chansonia "rise from its ashes" in this joyous month of June?

It is a special night for noted astronomer Ted Lewis (Erick McCormack), who is preparing a special dinner for his beautiful, adoring wife Lana (Jody Thompson) to celebrate their wedding anniversary. In another part of town, Tammy (Jenni Baird), a waitress at the small local diner with big plans for the future, looks out her window and is excited to see a shooting star, which she takes as a good sign for her dreams. But what Dr. Lewis and Tammy assume is a shooting star, is really an alien spaceship. The fiery ball hurtles toward earth and crash-lands on a butte in the desert. The only witnesses are Dick (Andrew Dunbar) and Penny (Sarah Smyth) who are necking in a nearby lovers' lane. A tall, metallic alien named Urp emerges from the craft unharmed, alarmed to discover that the monstrous Ghota, who was also on board, has escaped. The menacing one-eyed creature's unquenchable appetite could mean the end of civilization as we know it. Urp is the only one who knows how to stop the hideous extra-terrestrial, but to do so he has to take over the body of Dr. Lewis and enlist the aid of Tammy, the only human in town willing to believe and trust in his mission. The local police - including police Chief Dawson (Dan Lauria) and officer Vernon (Robert Patrick) - are confirmed skeptics and offer little help. Together, Urp and Tammy must hunt down the Ghota and neutralize it before it consumes all the local inhabitants and uses the human fuel to multiply and conquer the world!

movies-score.blogspot.com The Great Buck Howard posterLaw-school dropout Troy Gable answers an ad for a "personal assistant to a celebrity performer," hoping it will catapult him to a glamorous career in the entertainment industry. Little does he know... Law-school dropout Troy Gable answers an ad for a "personal assistant to a celebrity performer," hoping it will catapult him to a glamorous career in the entertainment industry. Little does he know that performer is Buck Howard, a "mentalist" infamous for his 61 appearances on The Tonight Show, who has been reduced to a has-been magician in need of a pretty big trick to get him out of this slump. Writer/director Sean McGinly does the near impossible by successfully encapsulating a whole era of entertainment in one outrageous character. Played with perfection by John Malkovich, Buck is a bigger-than-life mix of ego, sweetness, and delusion packaged in a flamboyant style. As Troy, Colin Hanks does a remarkable job of holding his own, even when deflecting Buck's diva-esque tantrums. In an inspired bit of casting, Tom Hanks plays Troy's father, who ironically disapproves of show business, and Emily Blunt is the fiery publicist hired to stage the comeback of a lifetime. McGinly's secret is that he never allows the film to wallow in sentimentality because Buck doesn't need our pity. He has confidence in his stage presence, and he may even have some authentic magic powers up his sleeve. The true magic of The Great Buck Howard, however, is remembering the power of staying true to yourself even if the world around you has changed

With the reluctant help of Diana Wayland (Rose Byrne) and Abby Wayland, the daughter and granddaughter of the now-deceased author of the prophecies, Ted’s increasingly desperate efforts take him on a heart-pounding race against time until he finds himself facing the ultimate disaster—and the ultimate sacrifice.
