MELISSA RAUCH GOES FOR G…….BRONZE?

The_Bronze_poster bronze4

I as fortunate to see an early screening of Melissa Rauch’s (Bernadette from Big Bang Theory) new film “The Bronze” , which she stars and co-wrote with her husband. You can get the Flickanalysis this Friday (3/18), but I sat down with some fellow critics in a round table format to interview Melissa about the film.

Let me start by saying Melissa is one of the nicest celebrities I have ever met and a complete contrast from her character Hope in “The Bronze”. You can hear the complete interview below (spoilers revealed in the interview) , but here are some highlights from the questions asked:

*It wasn’t planned to break the record for using the “F” word in a film, Hope could make Scarface blush!

I asked Melissa if she was an athlete or did any gymnastics in school? She told us that she was the opposite…the most unatheletic person you would meet. The idea came from her liking to watch the Olympics with her husband and a trip back to her home town after her first acting job and was given a free pretzel by a fan!

There were many questions about scenes in the film but we also asked about co-star Gary Cole who plays Hope’s father who goes from pushing parent to dominated provider for Hope. We asked about Stan (Cole) having no life and his only relationship is with his fish. Melissa told us Hope is a handful and all encompassing, keeping Stan to herself.

*Melissa added Hope doesn’t like herself very much, then I added “Except in the first 10 mins of the film” which got a laugh from Melissa. She added Hope loves her past success and continues to live it.

I asked What Bernadette would think of “The Bronze”? Melissa said she would like the film, she would be shocked but would like the movie!

John Goodman is savior then psycho in the creepy “10 Cloverfield Lane”

JJ Abrams reminds us of his last thriller “Cloverfield”(2008), but luckily in title only! Abrams’ new film “10 Cloverfield Lane” is a thriller starring John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. that will have you guessing until the final minutes of the film. JJ shows he is a fan of the classic Twilight Zone series with this new film that is character driven with a strong twist.

Michelle (Winstead), running away from a troubled relationship (boyfriend’s voice is Bradley Cooper) packing her stuff and leaving behind keys and an engagement ring. Michelle is hit from behind driving her car off the road. She wakes up in a concrete room with a cut on her forehead, an IV in her arm and a brace on her knee that is handcuffed to the wall!
