Pitch Perfect 2

Little Boy 

Review By: Kristin of According to Kristin

Directed By: Alejandro Gomez Monteverde
Produced By: Leo Severino
Written By: Alejandro Gomez Monteverde and Pepe Portillo
Starring: Jakob Salvati, David Henrie, Kevin James, Emily Watson, Ted Levine, Michael Rapaport, Ben Chaplin, Tom Wilkinson and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend the Miami premiere of a film called Little Boy.  I’d seen the trailer about a week prior, but I don’t think I truly knew what to expect going into the premiere.

Let me start by saying that my niece, who is 10, and three of her friends, who are 11 and 13, came to the premiere and were ecstatic to meet the star of the film, Jakob Salvati, beforehand.  Jakob was such a proper, sweet boy who has a bright future ahead of him.  He and his father allowed the girls to take a picture with him and they all raved about how sweet (and adorable) he was.

Little BoyWith that being said, the film started after an introduction by the writers and directors that couldn’t have shown any more passion for this project.

Little Boy is an adorable family film that follows 7-year-old Pepper Flynt Busbee (Jakob Salvati) and his quest to bring his father back home safely from World War II.  Pepper’s older brother, London (David Henrie), was refused entry into the army due to being flatfooted, so their father, James Busbee (Michael Rapaport) took his place.  Pepper was extremely close to his father and was rightfully devastated to hear that his “partner” was heading to fight in the war.  When Pepper and London’s mother, Emma (Emily Watson), receives word of James’s disappearance, Pepper decides to do whatever it takes to bring his father back.  Having grown up reading magic Ben Eagle comic books with James, Pepper attends a live show with the magician and is called up on stage.  Facing ridicule among his peers, Pepper is reluctant to try moving a bottle with only his mind, but he raises his hands and remembers his father and Ben’s words…all he has to do is believe he can do this.  The bottle moves, causing Pepper to believe he can do the impossible.  There are subtle religious undertones throughout this film, as Pepper seeks the help of those at his church.  Father Oliver hands Pepper a list of tasks to complete, which includes befriending the enemy; a Japanese man named Hashimoto (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa).   As the film goes on, Pepper learns to accept help from the one person he’d least expect.  While he sets off to complete these tasks, he finds faith in himself that he can do the impossible, so long as he truly believes it.  There are ups and downs that will absolutely bring tears to your eyes as you see this young boy whose only goal is to bring his true hero home.

Little BoyFor a film which has a 7-year-old actor on the screen for 98% of the time, the casting was spot on.  Jakob Salvati was amazing and the supporting cast was equally great.  If you have a heart and if you can find the underlying message behind it, this film is a must see.  It’s a project that everyone involved is obviously very passionate about, which makes it that much better.  So go out and support this heartfelt movie and spread the word!  For a movie like this to make four middle school aged girls cry and keep discussing it afterwards…it’s a win in my book!

Little Boy will be released in theaters on April 24, 2015 and runs approximately 86 minutes.

Check it out movie fans…and music fans. My good pal Chingo Bling made a pretty sweet video for the upcoming release of Universal Pictures’ new horror flick – UNFRIENDED!

Ushering in a new era of horror, Universal Pictures’ Unfriended unfolds over a teenager’s computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself a year earlier. After Universal executives saw a test screening of Unfriended terrify a test audience, the studio acquired the thriller that was developed and conceived by visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). Directed by Levan Gabriadze, Unfriended is written by Nelson Greaves and produced by Bekmambetov and Greaves, as well as Jason Blum for Blumhouse Productions (Ouija and Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series).

PUSH PLAYYYYYYY…if you dareeeee!!

In 1999, it was The Blair Witch Project. In 2009, it was Paranormal Activity. In 2015, a new film will revolutionize horror. Universal Pictures presents Unfriended.

Directed by Levan Gabriadze and written by Nelson Greaves, Unfriended follows a group of high school teenagers haunted by the spirit of their dead friend on the one-year anniversary of her tragic suicide. The movie is set as one long, terrifying Skype chat in which a group of teens are terrorized by the spirit of their former friend, who committed suicide after an embarrassing video of her was posted online. At first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing something or someone that wants them dead.

I had the opportunity to interview Greaves about the origins of Unfriended and how the initial story came together.

Film Title: Unfriended

As the writer, it was a challenge to come up with material that was compelling enough without having to resort to multiple locations. “I approached this as I was writing a play… and the sort of the same logic questions and challenges that come up were going to be things we were going to be tackling,” Greves said. “At the same time, we also see the benefits of the play. You don’t think about anything else. It’s just the characters. It’s just the world. If you can convince people to buy into that then you can have something that’s much more dramatic than throwing chainsaws…”

Each actor was assigned their own room in the house where the movie was shot and spent long days going through the entire script in one take. The technical crew designed a system where the actors could all see and hear each other, as well as hear direction from the directors. The filming process was far from typical. The entire movie was shot on GoPro cameras to make it look like an actual video chat. “I thinking liberating is the best way to describe (the filming process). We are actors that come from improv backgrounds. I’ve worked in TV and film and you’re really not allowed to do that a lot of the time,” Courtney Halverson stated.

Film Title: Unfriended

Overall, Unfriended is a horror film very of its time. It premiers in theaters April 17.

We weren’t setting out to tell a digital horror story. We weren’t setting out to tell a story about digital relationships. We set out a story about the way people live now,” Greaves said.
