Among Ravens Trailer


Every year, a group of old friends get together for a July 4th weekend vacation, but this year things seem a little more awkward than usual. There's plenty of tension in the air as Wendy Conifer is joined by her current husband Ellis and her ex Saul, as well her daughter Joey. Also among the party are Saul's struggling ghost writer Will who has a drinking problem, Saul's wife Emma who happens to be having an affair with Will and Wendy's life coach buddy Hal. It's difficult for everyone to remain civil during their time together; even group activities such as golf, hiking and boating doesn't distract from the steadily building animosity. Unfortunately, it seems to be rubbing off the most on young Joey, who seeks comfort in the form of the group's new addition; a nature filmmaker named Chad. Can a new face help rebuild the souring relationships between them? Joey certainly hopes so.

Rashida Jones Kidada Jones Rob Lowe Will McCormack

Rashida Jones will leave her role as Ann Perkins on NBC's ever popular Parks & Recreation at the halfway point in the upcoming sixth season, but rather than go straight to the unemployment office and apply for benefits, Rashida already has her next job lined up. Rashida is teaming up with her sister, Kidada Jones, to develop the new comedy-drama series The Revengers for The CW; an hour-long, New York-set revenge-based sitcom.

Celeste And Jesse Forever Review


Very Good

With its refusal to follow the usual romantic-comedy formula, this snappy and observant movie is a nice surprise. Not only does it keep us wondering about where it's heading, but it gives the likeable Jones and Samberg much more complex roles than they usually get to play. And the quirky approach combined with some darkly dramatic moments makes it more interesting to watch.

Jones and Samberg play the long-time couple Celeste and Jesse, who have been together since they were in school. Now married for six years, they're starting to wonder if maybe they're just best friends, rather than a couple. So they decide to separate. The main issue seems to be surfer-artist Jesse's lack of ambition but, when he begins to move on with his life, Celeste starts wondering if maybe she's the real problem. Even so, they're still completely involved in each others' lives, which is awkward for their friends Beth and Tucker (Graynor and Christian). Maybe they need some distance.

The film's perspective centres on Celeste's messy journey, which is a bumpy series of conflicting emotions. She works as a lifestyle critic, so her comments on pop culture are hilariously barbed, but as her personal life dissolves she retreats into annoying pot-fuelled wallowing. It's often not easy to watch her, but Jones gives a ruthlessly honest performance that's both funny and disturbing. Her sideplots with her gay boss (Wood), her low-life drug dealer (cowriter McCormack) and a bratty popstar client (Roberts) are nicely played but only tangentially developed.

Abandon Review


Weak

There's a little more to "Abandon" than the stock woman-in-peril thriller it looks like. But since writer-director Stephen Gaghan stages the film like a stock woman-in-peril thriller, there's no way to know this until the last 10 minutes when the twists kick in.

The first 9/10ths of the picture consists largely of cutie coed Katie Holmes having her thesis-oriented last semester of college turned into a distractingly stressful ordeal by a cop (Benjamin Bratt) coming around to dredge up the two-year-old case of her missing boyfriend (Charlie Hunnam). Well, that and the fact that soon thereafter the boyfriend -- an arrogant, idle-rich kid with a silly shaggy hairdo and a penchant for brash theatrics -- reappears and begins stalking her from the shadows.

With only a few obscure, barely crumb-like hints that there might be something more going on than just unwelcome visits from a nefarious ex, the movie coasts along on perfunctory tension and Holmes' good looks for several reels while waiting for the other shoe to drop.

American Outlaws Review


Weak

Fictionalizing and romanticizing the exploits of Old West outlaws has been a pastime of the entertainment industry since the day the James Gang robbed its first bank in 1866. From the pulpy serialized dime publications of the Old West itself to the rock'n'roll, brat pack Billy the Kid flick "Young Guns," horseback bandits have made for popular folk heroes.

It's a simple formula: Invent some noble cause that the outlaws are fighting for so they can be passed off as gallant, cast up-and-coming pretty boy actors in the leads, cast surly types as the law (and dress them in black), toss in a few gunfights riddled with hitchin' post clichés and a pretty lass to kiss just before the credits roll -- and voila! Instant Western.

"American Outlaws" is the slick Generation Y model from this blueprint, starring scruffy baby-face Colin Farrell ("Tigerland") as a Jesse James who robs banks to hurt Yankee railroad barons that done killed his maw when she wouldn't sell the family farm so they could lay down tracks.
