    G-S-T Top 10 – Favorite Kevin Costner Films

    I don’t think this is news to anyone but Kevin Costner is just one of my favorite actors. He’s not the finest thespian in history but he is just a solid entertainer. Personally I could watch any of his movies all day long. So with that I thought I’d forgo the Quick 5 and instead open this up a full to a Top 10…yes he has made more than 5 really good movies. This is for all you haters out there:)

    Sweet Trailer…’The Company Men’

    Here’s a movie I’ve been looking forward to for a while now. Previously we posted the teaser (well teaser as in it was sapmle footage used to find a distributor) but even then it looked pretty awesome. So now that the official trailer is here (and the Weinstein Company has picked it up) this will be released in select theaters this Fall. Have a watch; slight heart-warming hokiness and bad accents abound but it looks good to me! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPohmhNFwi4 The Company Men is a John Wells film about ‘corporate downsizing’ where Chris Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones and Ben Affleck play 3 such downsized employees. Affleck’s character looses his job and gets…

    G-S-T Top 10 – Favorite EPIC Films (Part I)

    I’ll say right off that this list probably won’t contain many of the films that you’d expect to see when I put EPIC in the title. When I come up with a Quick 5 or a Top 10, I usually try to choose films that are either off the beaten path or ones that just don’t get enough attention. Hey, it’s what I do. So before we start, let’s just take a look at this blurb which helps define and identify the makings of an epic. I think this is important as most people (mainly the ones I know) think an epic is simply a “sword and sandal” film. As written below,…

    Kevin Costner, I Salute You!!

    While I’ve long said that Kevin Costner is one of my favorite actors, this is yet another reason why I think the man is so great. While the BP oil disaster has been going on for far too long, I’m glad to see there’s some hope on the horizon. I know this news is about a month old but I just heard about it on Yahoo and thought it was interesting. Kevin Costner and his brother developed an oil filtration system over 15 years ago and it is now (finally) being brought to the front lines of the oil spill sites. As you’ll see in the video he is passionate…

    Off the Shelf…’Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’

    Due to a very pleasing viewing of the recent Robin Hood film, I thought I’d re-evaluate the previous Mr. Hood, the one whom I’ve held on a pedestal for so long. Comparatively, they are different sotries and given that the newest Ridley Scott film is a production that throws out most convention, looking back it seems more apparent that Costner’s did so as well (just to a lesser degree). Was it a bad thing? No. It, just like Scott’s film, just fit well in the time it was made and like history has shown us, change, sometimes, an inevitable part of storytelling. As far as Kevin Costner’s film, does it stand up? Nostalgia aside, I…

    Next Up On Kevin Costner's Plate…A Lot!!

    Hello World, Marc Here: I’m just about finished checking the backlog of things I missed while on my Honeymoon and boy am I glad to have found this tidbit below. Now before I get to the good stuff, I wanted to get something out. I don’t think it’s a surprise to any of you that Kevin Costner is one of my favorite actors. Drama, comedy, epics, you name it, he’ll do it. Sure he had some missteps but what great director/actor hasn’t? Me, I just adore his work, well, most of his films anyway. Without fail, and sometimes to a fault, I will see anything he’s attached to. But the man has such…

    Oh Boy, a Happy Birthday "Double Feature"!!

    One of the elements on IMDb that I pay more than passing attention to is the ‘Born Today‘ feature, and today one of my favorite actors turns 55. That’s right Kevin Costner is the big 5-5 and I thought it was worth mentioning because I am such a big fan of his. But what’s that?? Not good enough you say? Well, what if I told you that he shares the same birthday with probably the world’s classiest actor, or who Robert Osborne called, “the best of the best“. That’s right, the incomparable Cary Grant (who passed away in 1986) would have been 106…what? People still celebrate Elvis’ birthday. “You know, punk, one day you’ll…

    Sweet (teaser) Trailer…'The Company Men'

    Last year we wrote about the upcoming Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones and Ben Affleck film The Company Men. Honestly I forgot about it and thanks to this teaser, it’s back on my radar. Well I wouldn’t even call it a teaser because aside from the SD quality, I don’t think it looks official in any way shape or form. Even the music (which I really really like as it sounds like something from E.S. Posthumus) doesn’t make me feel like this is a real movie as it looks nothing more than some fan made trailer. My guess is that this is what the production company is using to sell to a distributor.…
