How Do I Love "Crazy, Stupid, Love?" Let Me Count the Kisses Or Read My Movie Review! 

Watching a smart romantic comedy like “Crazy, Stupid, Love” in a summer filled with fighting giant robots, magical boy wizards, and avenging superheroes is like drinking a tall, cool glass of lemonade during sweltering heat.

Written by Dan Fogelman, the guy who gave us the Disney/Pixar “Cars” movies, and directed by Glen Ficarra and John Requa (“Bad Santa,” “I Love You Phillip Morris”), “Crazy, Stupid, Love” is witty, charming, and oddly uplifting. You will be soul-searching long after the movie is finished. “Crazy, Stupid, Love” is this year’s “Little Miss Sunshine.”

The film is decidedly farcical in nature and the talented cast is more than game to dish out every absurd and preposterous narrative arc to full effect. There’s an important major plot twist near the end and if you have seen the movie already please do not spoil it by your earnest revelation. Read More...

Say Bloody Mary Three Times! Watch Official Trailer for "Paranormal Activity 3" 

I don't know about you but I've become a "Paranormal Activity" fan. I enjoyed both 1 and 2 and looking forward to the third one. We can call the third installment "When Catfish Meets Paranormal Activity!" The directors of last year's "Catfish," Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, return to helm "Paranormal Activity 3." (Check out my interview with Nev Schulman for "Catfish" right here)

Set on Sept. 24, 1988 and based on the characters created by Oren Peli (he's returning to produce this film alongside Jason Blum), the new shaky-cam thriller is a prequel explaining what really happened to sisters Katie (Katie Featherston) and Kristi Rey (Sprague Grayden) when they were growing up. This one is quite intriguing, and features all the dastardly spookiness we've grown to love with the "Paranormal Activity" franchise.

Watch until the very end when Katie and Kristi say Bloody Mary three times! I can't wait to see "Paranormal Activity 3" when it opens October 21 of this year!
