To be honest, the Hangover sequel was so bad that we have been intentionally avoiding watching The Hangover Part III trailer. However, recently we saw it, and have to say – it looks pretty hilarious. Granted, half of the funniest parts are probably in the trailer, but it looks like the final installment may live up to the beloved original. Hits theaters May 24th.
At Frachelli, we love music, we love Kickstarter projects, and we also love friends. One of our friends is currently running a Kickstarter project to record his debut solo album, so it was a no brainer to share the project with our readers. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing Adam McDonough perform live and are definitely excited for the release of Coast to Coast. He also throws one hell of a BBQ.
If you’re a big superhero fan, odds are you’ve watched this trailer 10 times since it was released last week – but for our average movie-going readers, we wanted to share the latest Man of Steel trailer. We were pretty pumped to see the film already, but this preview will certainly further motivate us to hit theaters when it comes out June 14th.
If you were a fan of Drive, director Nicolas Winding Refn is teaming up with Ryan Gosling again in the upcoming film Only God Forgives. Set in the criminal underworld of Bangkok, Gosling stars as Julien, a thriving drug smuggler who is out to kill those responsible for his brother’s death. Also starring Kristin Scott Thomas, the film is set to hit US theaters on July 19th.
We’re still a bit partial to the Kill Bill series when it comes to Tarantino films, but there’s no question that Django Unchained was absolutely awesome. Relive all the witty dialogue and shocking violence that was brilliantly portrayed by Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Samuel L. Jackson with your copy on Blu-ray/DVD. It also stars the beautiful Kerry Washington, which is also a plus.
Reckoner is off Radiohead’s awesome 2007 album In Rainbows. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the song played live a few years back, but for those who haven’t seen Thom Yorke in action, here’s a semi-live version of the song performed for Radiohead’s film Scotch Mist. Hope you enjoy the seductive mystique of this song as much as I do.
The third installment of the BioShock series, BioShock Inifinite was just released and is tearing up the gaming charts. The unique first-person shooter is set in 1912 and takes place in a marvel of a city, the flying cloud city of Columbia. You’ll be on a rescue mission (to save a girl of course) and need to fight mechanized enemies along sky rails, zeppelins and floating streets. Plus you’ll be able to gain powers, tear through time, shoot lightning, and all that jazz. Available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
While we’re not sure there was a need to break The Hobbit into three different movies, we are
still big fans of Tolkien’s writing and the films Peter Jackson produces. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Blu-ray releases tomorrow and will allow you to watch all of the dragon-chasing, wizard-spelling, orc-fighting action in hi-def.
We recently saw the Villalobos Brothers perform in Hoboken with a few friends. We were there to see a rock band and didn’t expect to see an opener comprised of three Mexican violinists and a guitar player. About halfway through their first song, we all looked at each other and were like “this is f*!king awesome.” The music video above is for the Villalobos Brothers song El San Lorenzo which was shot on the rooftops of Brooklyn – and we hope you like it as much as we did seeing them perform it live. Check out their website and catch them on tour if you just so happen to be in Mexico.
