Coming Up On mannythemovieguy.com 
I had a very busy week! After attending the oh-so fabulous Critics' Choice Awards, I went and saw 4 films and interviewed the stars of those movies.

So, coming up on your friendly neighborhood mannythemovieguy.com, you'll see my interviews and reviews of the following films:



Yes, I love slasher flicks! As a prepubescent boy, I too, was a fan of this genre. And I still am a fan, even after many years away from puberty!

So I interviewed the cast including Jensen Ackles, Jaime King, and Kerr Smith. I'll post these interviews soon. The movie? In one phrase...visually gory!



Okay, I enjoyed jamming with the cute canines! And the film's stars, Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin were sweet! The interviews will be up soon, and the film, yeah, it made me cry :sad in a good way!



I got to interview Brendan Fraser for the second time! And he remembered me, so I was very happy :happy

The best part of the film? It teaches us the magic of reading, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that!



Have I told you my new BFF is Harry Connick Jr? He's such a sweet man, and very, very funny in person! And we jammed! I'll tell you more about it coming up!

So as always, stay tuned!
