"Magic Mike" Stripper in "Endless Love" Remake! 

Remember the original 1981 "Endless Love" starring Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt? It was a cheesy flick about young love made popular by the sultry goodness song featuring Diana Ross and Lionel Richie.

Well, Universal Pictures decided to make a remake of the movie featuring Alex Pettyfer ("Magic Mike," "I Am Number Four") and Gabriella Wilde, both British. I suspect this new film will be more of the same but just newer! Whoa! Isn't that what Hollywood has been doing lately? Take a look at "Carrie" the remake for example!

Anyway, "Endless Love" will debut in theaters on Feb. 14, 2014 just in time for your Valentine's Day celebration!

Here's the trailer:

Do You Want More "Paranormal Activity?" 

"Paranormal Activity" has officially replaced "Saw" as the franchise that just keeps on ticking, and ticking, and ticking. We're now entering the fifth incarnation of the franchise with "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones." Frankly, I think it's getting stale. I enjoyed the first two films, the third was okay, and then the fourth was head-scratching. But still, if you remember "Paranormal Activity 4," it ended with a great premise, that could, that's the operative word here, reinvigorate the franchise.

Well, here's "The Marked Ones," which is set to open on Jan. 3, 2014.

And now, we know, based on the trailer below, that it's all black magic! Figures!

I Can't Wait to Enter "The Grand Budapest Hotel" from Director Wes Anderson! 

I love, love, love Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" (See my interview with the director here) and now, I can't wait to see the helmer's new project, "The Grand Budapest Hotel." Fox Searchlight will release the film on March 7, 2014 and it has a great cast featuring Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Mathieu Amalric, F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Lea Seydoux and Saoirse Ronan.

The film is about the relationship between a concierge (Fiennes) and his underling (Tony Revolori). The trailer makes the film more intriguing!

CARRIE (2013) & THE FIFTH ESTATE Movie Reviews 

Two big movies this weekend, we have “The Fifth Estate” about Wikileaks founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and how an internet startup became the most debated and feared organization. This one’s from director Bill Condon (“Dreamgirls,” “Gods and Monsters,” and the last two “Twilight” movies) and it also stars David Thewlis, Daniel Bruhl, Laura Linney, and Stanley Tucci.

“Carrie” is the latest reimagining of Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation of Stephen King’s popular novel. Chloe Grace Moretz (“Kickass” films, “Hugo”) stars in the title role previously taken by Sissy Spacek and Academy Award nominee, Julianne Moore, plays the crazy mommy right after Piper Laurie in the original. Kimberly Peirce (“Boys Don’t Cry”) is the film’s director. So is this “Carrie” better than the first? Take a look:

Two big films this weekend, we have the true-life story “Captain Phillips” and the action sequel “Machete Kills.” In “Captain Phillips,” Tom Hanks embodies Captain Richard Phillips and his incredible, unbelievable hijacking by Somali Pirates in 2009. Paul Greengrass (“United 93,” “The Bourne Ultimatum”) directs from a script by Billy Ray.

Danny Trejo returns to the world of Machete Cortez in Robert Rodriguez’s new sequel, “Machete Kills.” Jessica Alba (Santana Rivera) and Michelle Rodriguez (Luz) also return for the second time. Joining them are Mel Gibson (Luther Voz), Demian Bichir (Mendez), Amber Heard (Miss San Antonio), Sofia Vergara (Madame Desdemona), Charlie Sheen or Carlos Estevez (President Rathcock), Vanessa Hudgens (Cereza), and Alexa Vega (Killjoy). Playing El Camaleon are Walton Goggins, Cuba Gooding Jr., Lady Gaga, and Antonio Banderas.

So which one is my pick of the week? Take a look!
