Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of 2015

Top 10 Films of 2015

You know the drill. 2015 had plenty of great movies hit the big screen, and it was pretty difficult to whittle this list down to what you’ll see below. Surely your favorite movies are not the same as mine. My list is by no means meant to be definitive, especially since there are some movies I’ve heard great things about but just haven’t seen yet (my apologies to Carol and The Revenant). This is a collection of my personal Top 10 Movies of 2015, the ones that made me laugh really hard, made me cry or just hit all the right buttons. So let’s get to it. Read More »

Fall 2015 Movie Preview

We’re well past the midpoint of the year, and we’ve already delivered our list of the Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far. And as we reach the end of the summer, the movie business starts slowing down, giving a little calm before the storm that is awards season. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still tons of movies to look forward to before the end of the year.

That’s why we’ve collected a list of 30 Movies to Be Excited for Before the End of 2015. And since there are so many great movies coming up before the end of the year, this is the Blockbuster and Studio Edition of the list, and next week we’ll deliver a completely different list for independent movies. But until then, here’s a list of movies we think you won’t want to miss over the next four months. Read More »

Sleeping with Other People red band trailer

Romantic comedies usually don’t impress me. They’re just not my cup of tea unless I really like the on-screen talent involved. More often than not it’s the indie romantic comedies that bring something fresh enough to shake up the subgenre to make it entertaining and sincere, and that’s exactly what happens with Sleeping with Other People.

The Sundance selected movie from Bachelorette writer and director Leslye Headland features Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis as two two sex addicts unable to commit to real relationships who decide to hold each other accountable for their destructive behavior and strike up quite the strong bond. So strong that they begin to act like a couple, even though they’re not, and you know what that means

This is an R-rated romantic comedy so the new Sleeping with Other People red band trailer is the best way to get the right vibe from this hilarious, authentic romance. Watch the new trailer below! Read More »

Sleeping with Other People trailer

One of my favorite films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival was the raunchy romantic comedy Sleeping with Other People, starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie. Thankfully, IFC Films picked up the indie from the festival, and you’ll be able to see it in theaters in just a few weeks.

In the meantime, a new international trailer for the film has just surfaced, and be prepared to watch it somewhere privately, because even though it’s not an official red band trailer, it’s still a little NSFW, due to some pretty risque conversation topics. The major culprit is Sudeikis explaining to Brie how to touch herself in a very intimate way.

Sleeping With Other People trailer

IFC Films has released the first trailer for Sleeping With Other People, director Leslye Hedland‘s follow-up to her 2012 indie hit Bachelorette. This one stars Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie as two former hookups who reconnect after twelve years. Seeing as they’re both terrible at relationships, they pledge to stay just friends. However, it becomes increasingly difficult to deny the attraction between them.

In other words, Sleeping With Other People is basically When Harry Met Sally… for assholes. Which is not an insult, by the way — that’s how Hedland herself describes the movie. And really, as great as that romcom classic still is, it’s about time we got a 21st century update. Watch the Sleeping With Other People trailer after the jump. Read More »
