In the Japanese original called gold Chirac. And part of the reason was that word. Was a combination. Of the two Japanese words for what he was meant to represent but that he was supposed to be half -- half -- real. After -- way I never thought made -- -- thought it was crazy just like a big blizzard to me right that was the original concept he's he's back in this when he does start off enough. In Japan. This is so much better in the 1998. Big dance and music I don't know what they were thinking. Matthew Broderick really in God's own movies that -- Spiller meets God's LO what enough help where they think Dana. Director Gareth Edwards is at the Helm this time the first big budget feature it on small movies and they given -- Project to -- I think he does a great job with I saw this. In the middle of act. Audience the other night not an empty seat in the house that's -- in 3-D IMAX there. And the audience loved it they broke into spontaneous applause about four or five times throughout the film. Which is always fun to see. And true. There are times where you a little bored with the people and you find yourself thinking and get back to the monsters fighting. Differently if that would gods or movies or else -- we like we are here. The sea monsters knocked over buildings -- their tails through life and well we're not here for a fine fine movie now for the first work. You don't even get a full look at -- You just get a little bit of detail here that's which there are splitting rage over here and then finally about an hour and they give you your first big look and they decide to. -- -- -- The same way they treated John Travolta at the beginning Saturday night fever. They start at his -- is if you answer yes and race. God -- body -- they finally get to his head. And he lets out that classic gods or. Or maybe a little deeper a little louder but it is still essentially. The same war there are some things that do not need to be updated like Tarzan yell that's sort of you need to job. Absence and they do the same thing with god -- -- here. The monsters are all handled very nicely. Hi -- Andy circuses. Special effects company Andy Serkis.

You only heard King -- draw the the fix is and yes but I just remember it's seven years old game. -- -- -- This is going to be the best movie that's ever ever ever there's no reason to make any more movies to extend the lead the best possible movie about. It's just like this newscast with the Tom pocket newscast once you've heard of Tom -- newscast there's no need to ever do another -- that's right you can just a moral rules you know that's why he -- -- -- its top pocket was Colin.

Not sure whether -- -- is going to be number one at the box office world and -- small. Might be -- -- -- And -- close. This is something we actually -- matter that much of lately. The based on -- story inspirational. Family sports drama. From the folks at Disney of course John -- here. Plays an -- album. The arrogant. Sports agent he's he's not a very nice guy. And he just to make some money. Is going to India. To try again a couple of cricket players from India and see if you can recruit them terror for a Major League Baseball -- make some money here. Now of course. If you're going to do a movie about. Two guys from India and there assimilation. In coming over the US and trying to get by. The film's. Focus of course is going to be on the white guys who brought them over here if you look at the post for the movie. All you -- is handsome Jon Hamm with. Which. Should. -- of an Indian temple in the background. And the two guys their played by it's a rod Sharma he was. The young guy in the -- of -- -- -- collector. And I'm not -- at all he was the young guy in slum dog millionaire another terrific actor. I mean there are both very. Very broad lead portray there are just awfully nice sweet guys. Yes they wanna do well in the US. -- are more interested in seeing it Jon Hamm. Kits together with his girlfriend and -- maybe puts a ring on that they are in all they're just a couple of swell guys. If you. -- of the character Raj on the Big Bang theory that's all is deep into the culture is they're willing to get there. One that they do bring up that is something that often isn't look -- In stories of this sort. Yeah you want to. Find good players. So that. York team will will do well he -- have success for your team. But if you're an agent for this player from another country. Then -- all sorts of marketing opportunity or that people of Indian descent in the US may be buying caps and shirts and tickets who haven't done that before. You might also get a following. In that country for this particular earlier where's my agent would. Get caught of as. Steve Martin pointed out in the jerk. Its profit deal. Soledad that is that the situation here Alan Arkin. Is also. In the film playing a cranky old baseball scout. Who makes wise cracks shots like Alan Arkin and every movie he does lately. This film. This is movie comfort food if your if your MM -- far. He'll probably like it well enough there's certainly no surprises. Here. Nothing here that you hadn't seen before or tears will be shed triumphant music will be played is these young men looked towards the future. Whatever you do though don't look into the actual record books. Four reality check the real players. That this movie was based on never actually got to the pros they never made it out of the minor league but the EP. Tries to stay away from that they don't want to dwell on these -- had a million. Our arms. Very good next up Philip Seymour Hoffman I assume this is one of his last rules not the -- pocket. Yeah this is. Certainly one of the -- I think this might be his last starring. Role in the film there are three email three more films he has in the pipeline that will be coming out yet. This is directed. By John Slattery the first. Feature film director by John Slattery he plays the hard drinking wild living heart attack Allen Roger sterling from mad man. He's directed a handful of laps of CNET TV show with this is his first movie here. This is one of those independent films. Which day quirky cast just filled with characters. In and East Coast. Or Rust Belt type of city. Philip Seymour Hoffman. Plays. The year at the stepson. The stepfather. A young guy who dies in a construction. Well call it an accident. Yeah okay everybody's calling it an accident there are no need to involve the authorities he got it got it. Philip Seymour Hoffman's plain Jane wife. Is played by Christina Hendricks. Mad men which is a bit of a stretch being Christina Hendricks in general is like. If you crossed. 1962. And Margaret. And the incredible hall I mean she's she's. It was -- wasn't available. No apparent general purpose she plays one of the bar stools okay. You also have. -- Euro. In the air as well basically. Philip Seymour Hoffman's character has to come up with Derrick -- for the few role. And and. All. Some some meat truck wastes. That in the funeral money on horses that -- And a movie. The majority of the action takes place. In a -- no way that this isn't that type of park. This isn't that type of movie doesn't take place in a bar it takes place in gin -- Takes place NIG yeah well -- lots and lots of drinking to give you an idea. Of the proof count for this particular yeah Richard Jenkins terrific actor. He plays on newspaperman. Who hangs out at the gin -- quite a bit. In once in. During one sitting. He drinks seventeenth. Spur drivers on word and he's feeling. Just fine too is that as part of about. Minimum daily requirement when you live in the -- wow well yeah it's good. Performances. But most people complained it yours too much between black comedy and melodrama the stories of meandering. But good stuff from. Okay will be back with more big movies that are big -- with cinema Bob stills and and he said he beach it is the movie show with cinema Bob. He's eligible big movies hitting the big screen today god Zola and million dollar arm and guards pocket next up. Just outside yes this is for French romantic. Comedy around only. Stars Gabriel Byrne who is not fringe. And Emmanuel food Digital's new Emmanuel I used to watch shows on -- that this is a different type Emmanuel and Bangkok. Hi rose. One did you do it and. All. That you. Different yes yes manual Lewis and manual oodles. And Hughes Hughes -- energy she placed. A flighty flaky forgetful objectors who. On the train bound Paris. And she -- game over and playing -- reserved. British professor who's on his way to Paris refusal. The two of them meet on the train start chatting. She decides to follow them off the tray and starts to -- bit. Crashes the funeral. Pretends to be a mourner and two of them continued talking. -- connection. Finding hotel room that sort of thing. It's somewhat similar in structure to. Before sunrise. The we -- hall. They did the trilogy but here the protagonists. Our middle aged rather than in their twenty's. That I around bars as much as our homes -- By this this is just to keep in mind yeah this is the way the movies. View middle a middle aged couple. She's 43. He 64. They're perfectly matched up in the view of. The cinema off. The most earlier. -- have felt that when the movie just focuses on the that to them getting to know each other and all that it's fairly charming and answer thing but when it branches out. And draws in a lot of the characters that loses a lot of its steam down. After all it is. -- -- Just this. Could be unknown known yes this is the latest documentary. By. Errol Morris he's the guy did that and lying in a brief history of time -- fog of war which he won an Oscar for. In this film is centered around thirty hours. Interviews. With -- 81 year old Donald Rumsfeld talking extensively about Iraq and Afghanistan. And more. For anyone. Who is thinking -- He's 81 now a lot of time has passed I'm sure there'll more hours. We'll get him to. Disgust regrets he may have had -- talk about mistakes that he thinks he might have made. No not at all Rumsfeld remains as collected and unruffled. As ever he. There's -- interview -- them. Yes and hey. Wasn't there is seeing where they attempted but it's for one side -- hello again yeah it's just it's he's -- -- it's not pretty accurate no yes yes. This is one of those. Documentaries. As -- tonight. Well I I don't think it's as. Are to that side as far as being opinion one way or the other but this is one of us were kind of feel like. I'm sure it's very nicely. Produced at all by the year really need to see this on -- it's just it's. -- it very well on sixty minutes stories edited especially on slow weekend through that's right. The family couldn't get tickets go on July until I went with Donald Rumsfeld in the -- I know and -- sad and disappointed that Donald Rumsfeld knocked over no buildings with his tail him. -- gave no other new release shelf Joaquin Phoenix -- real life. Amy Adams oil like him better in. Her yes yes in -- in west terror charges -- is just her this is. This is the movie in which Joaquin Phoenix. Gets into a romantic situation. With her computer program. Voiced by Scarlett Johansson. This is the movie that will make you say. You know. I always thought I I'd wanna run away with Scarlett Johansson let us now I know that. Really if shall just talk to me on the phone. Might just be enough sorted out -- yeah. This fell one. The Oscar for best original screenplay. Last year. Written and directed by Spike Jones. I know for me for my personal taste it was the best movie of 2013 for me just there are just funny. Charming very interesting brings up so many interesting concepts about. What makes a relationship real what is an actual connection with somebody if you don't actually eat. See or feel or touch someone can you still being connected and have a relationship win them. Just a really interesting don't. -- all thought they get the answers about it it is you camera Jimmy and -- well government. The show was on earlier in the day so -- I remember you know folks are listening. Since he's I think. This movie almost might be more effective. If you watch it in an intimate setting like your home rather than in theater probably the ultimate way to watch this film would be on your iPhone. You know download of the night and watch it that way if you're really wanted to get into the groove of the movie but now while you're driving. Not while you're driving. With the order a safety and from Senator Obama after her comes of that moment so often is the cancer. This is a fairly lousy. Sex comedy that came out earlier this year but it stars Zach for a and so what they're hoping. Is that you either just enjoyed him in neighbors you just saw a commercial. For neighbors and you thought -- see a movie to come back. On -- it and you won't realize it's kind of claws into you pay for the download or. Rented to gosh -- thing or imaging -- and it still allows. Image and boots issue and it's. And -- -- more problematic and get enough votes. Most people will take Beano before watching a movie with him and improved she actually. Probably got the best reviews for anybody this movie she's a British actress and it's politics guys diet Frankenstein. Is one where there hoping you forgot all the commercials that Ron when this was about to come out. If you ever thought gee. I'd like to see a friend -- movie but only. Here Aaron Eckhart gets to play Frankenstein. And only. The air Frankenstein does a lot of clothing and all early. If Frankenstein can lie. I thought this is the movie for you -- walls. Not good about the invisible and yes yes this is the lawn. This is the Charles Dickens sex scandal flicked. Starring ray -- that everybody has been waiting for. It is of course. I mean for all those people who watched David Copperfield. And Christmas Carol and thought you know that the -- these. Sex she. Look for this soon on late night -- I -- about wraps it up also opening today by the way hill street blows the complete series and countess Dracula laws always gonna enjoy God's on this weekend and we'll see you Monday at nine.
