Last night, I watched the film, “Foxcatcher” starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo.
I thought it was a very good film and one of the best drama films I’ve seen in years. This movie is about the murder of freestyle wrestler, Dave Schultz. It also tells the story of Olympic gold medalist, Mark Schultz training at John Du Pont’s “Foxcatcher” farm.
The movie was a bit long and a bit slow pacing but still a very good movie worth watching. I thought this was Steve Carell’s best performance in his career too. This movie is based on real life events so all it takes is a quick google search to learn more about the real John Du Pont story. As a matter of fact, I never knew about the Dave Schultz murder story until I saw this film and then I started researching this story more.
This movie was based on the book written by Mark Schultz so this makes me wanna read the book too.
I thought this movie was really good and would like to get it on BluRay sometime. Check it out yourself.
“Boston Legal” star, James Spader is in talks to be the new CEO for Dunder Mifflin in “The Office”, as replacement for Steve Carell. He already guest starred in the season finale.
More on it, here.
James Spader is a phenomenal actor. I never watched “Boston Legal”, but I remembered Spader in the first “Stargate” film and the drama, “Crash”.
No matter who replaces Steve Carell, the show is going to bomb without him. I’m pretty sure the ratings will drop next season. The show is going to get canceled, just watch.
Last week, I watched the first episode without Michael Scott, on “The Office”. So NBC is canceling shows like crazy? Just watch “The Office” get canceled right away this year. I know it’s going to happen. No matter who replaces Michael Scott as boss of “Dunder Mifflin”, the show is going to tank without him.
I can’t stand Will Ferrell as Deangelo, so I hope Deangelo won’t be the new boss. If he is, that’s when I’ll quit watching. It’s not “The Office” without Steve Carel. It already feels weird without him. I can understand why Steve wants to leave, after 7 seasons of being part of the show. Steve is becoming a big name movie star now. He’s too famous for TV.
I thought it was lame of NBC to continue the show without him. It won’t last another season after this, trust me.
I like Steve Carell and all, huge fan of the guy but one thing that always confused me about him is the way he dresses in film and on TV. Is there ever a time where he don’t look like this smart professional looking rich guy? Does he always wear a suit and neck tie everywhere he goes? In almost every film he did, he looks like this too. It seems he has the same look everywhere you see him. I guess this is what makes him famous for.
I didn’t see, “Date Night” in theater ’cause I wasn’t interested. Now that it’s out on DVD, I bought it at Best Buy last night. Watched it last night too. The reason I wanted to see it ’cause I’m a fan of Steve Carell. Loved him in “The Office” TV show and love his acting in movies too. I was pretty surprised by “Date Night”. I was worried it was going to be a crap movie, but it turned out to be a great film. It was funny, and entertaining.
After seeing this movie, made me realize that I’m glad Steve is leaving “The Office”. He’s getting too famous for TV and he’s about to become a household name in Hollywood for movies. He’s a fantastic actor and just an all around, good guy. This movie tells a story about a married couple going on a date night to a sea food restaurant in NYC, they didn’t have a reservation so they steal someone else’s identity so they can get a table. Their date night of course, goes wrong, and ends up getting into crime with city mobsters looking for a flash drive.
It actually wasn’t a bad film at all. I had some good laughs, the film had some good action, good writing. While I mostly watch action and horror films, I need to switch it up and watch a good comedy once in a while. “Date Night” is a good flick, check it out.
Well, look like NBC plans to keep going with “The Office” even when Steve Carell leaves ’cause they’re going to keep going with another few seasons. B.J. Novak just signed a contract to stay with the show for the next two seasons. The deal covers both as actor and writer/producer.
Hmmmmmm, when Michael Scott quits the company on the show, there will indeed be a new boss. NBC can try and go on with the show without Steve Carell, but the ratings will tank without Steve, I’m 100% sure of it!!!!
Oh well. Guess I’ll make my prediction for the boss replacement of, “The Office”. Who will be Michael’s replacement?
I think the new boss will be female, and it might be either Pam or Kelly.
Steve Carell, the leading star of the hit NBC series, “The Office” confirms he’s leaving the show and Season 7 will be his last.
More on it here:
Steve claims he wants to spend more time with his family, but I really think he wants to move on to movies full time. This guy’s been coming out with new movie roles like crazy.
Steve is phenomenal, I really like the guy.
If Steve is leaving, then NBC may as well cancel the show for good ’cause I can’t see anybody replacing Michael Scott as the new boss for the job. I’m sure people would like to see Jim Halpert or Dwight Schrute take over as boss on the show but it just wouldn’t work since Steve created a legacy. The ratings would tank without Steve.
