In October 1957, Lawrence Bender was born in the Bronx, New York City, and named Lawrence Kirk Bender. Being from the Roman descent, Bender attended the University of Maine and studied civil engineering. He took up ballet dancing, only to drop it for acting after he sustained an injury. Finally, he moved into film production.

Lawrence Bender is the only producer who has succeeded at producing two successive films at the Berlin Film Festival competition. The films he produced were Good Will Hunting and Jackie Brown in 1997. He was in 1995 nominated for the best picture in Pulp Fiction, best picture in Good Will Hunting 1998, and best picture in Inglourious Basterds 2010.

His company has, over the years, achieved success in the production of commercials and music. In 2001, his company, A Band Apart, shot 75 commercials and music videos. Following this huge achievement, the company earned itself 13 MTV Music Video Award nominations.

Best Movie

Although there are many movies produced by Lawrence Bender, my favorite is Good Will Hunting. It may be two decades old, but it remains to be one of the unique films of all time. One beautiful aspect of this movie is that it is authentic. Affleck and Damon grew up together in real life.

The friendship between Chuckie, Will, Morgan, and Billy is one of a kind, and this particularly is the magnet that holds the movie together. Their friendship just goes to tell the viewer that family comes in different forms. Well, if there is something else I find totally awesome is the Boston accents. Every role in the movie brings out perfection. In this movie, as opposed to most others, are actors that seem to be in their perfect roles.

Every bit of it comes out powerful, and this is just one of the reasons the movie is a huge success to date. I guess, in a really good movie, a bit of romance is a huge plus. I really love the chemistry felt between Matt Damon and Minnie Driver.

Robin Williams happens to be a darling in every movie he features. Well, in this one, no one would have played Sean Maguire better than him. Additionally, despite the seriousness of the movie, I like the comical exchanges in between as they make Lawrence Bender a great producer.

The Chainsmokers were initially made up of Pall and former DJ Rhett Bixler. The Chainsmokers were re-formed as an EDM DJ duo in 2012 under the management of Adam Alpert in chainsmoker is a duo DJ/production group that consist of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. They hit the scene hard in 2014 with their hit song #selfie. The debut EP was released in October 2015 titled Bouquet.

The EP managed to climb to top 10 on the US billboard top 100. Their single don’t let me down win a Grammy for best dance recording. The duo’s first live performance was opening for Timeflies at Terminal 5 in September 2014.

Fast forward to 2018.The Chainsmokers gave their loyal listeners, and eager new adopters, a new gift on January 17, 2018, in the form of the new dance-rock track, “Sick Boy”. Sick Boy is a very deep and dark song.

Lyrics from Sick Boy:

“I’m from the east side of America

Where we choose pride over character

And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is

I live on the west side of America

Where they spin lies into fairy dust

And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is us”

After 9 months of not releasing any new songs, The Chainsmokers thinks that “Sick Boy” will be a success for them. The duo recently performed at the Conrad hotel in New York City, at a Hilton and American Express card member special event.

The Chainsmoker recently had a very detailed interview with forbes.com and it is a very interesting read. They talk about the single Sick Boy, what motivates them to do such a dark record, a new era in their music and a whole lot more. Don’t sleep on The Chainsmokers, this is a very promising year for them.
