I Can't Wait to see "Divergent!" Check Out New Trailer with Never-Before-Seen Footage! 


Based on Veronica Roth's novel, the buzz surrounding "Divergent" is inescapable! But do you really know what "Divergent" means? No? Well, the new trailer with never-before-seen-footage can help! Check it out now:



Starring Shailene Woodley as the main charactrer Tris Prior, the buzz surrounding "Divergent" is similar to "The Hunger Games" franchise. Completing the cast are Theo James (Four), Miles Teller (Peter), and Zoë Kravitz (Christina). Oh yeah, we also have Tony Goldwyn, Ashley Judd, and the fantastic Kate Winslet! Yay! From director Neil Burger (I love his "The Illusionist"), "Divergent" heads to theaters on March 21. I can't wait!

Movie Reviews: “Labor Day” and “That Awkward Moment” 


Two big movies this weekend, we have “Labor Day” for drama lovers and “That Awkward Moment” for comedy fans. In “Labor Day,” Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin star in the film adaptation of Joyce Maynard’s novel. Writer-director Jason Reitman follows “Young Adult” with a movie that is like a mom and pop version of an S & M flick.

In “That Awkward Moment,” Zac Efron, Miles Teller, and Michael B. Jordan star as bros who vow to be single forever and only date women casually. So, how is the quality of the film? Hint: this is from Tom Gormican, one of the producers of the much-hated “Movie 43.”

Take a look at my reviews of “Labor Day” and “That Awkward Moment.”

Lana Del Rey Adds Haunting Mystery to "Maleficent!" 


Walt Disney Pictures has recruited Lana Del Rey for the new trailer to the upcoming "Maleficent" and I say, great call! (see the latest teaser/trailer for "Maleficent" trailer)

At first I was like, was that Angelina Jolie singing? And then voila, like a velvety smoky ray of light, I detected the magical, soothing, mysterious voice of Del Rey!

And now, it's almost here! Del Rey's take on the "Sleeping Beauty" classic "Once Upon a Dream" is just, well, haunting, and pure magic!

Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora / Briar Rose, the Sleeping Beauty

Welcome Nicolas Cage Back Into Your Life 


We love Nicolas Cage very much! And we even love him even though he's been making run-of-the-mill movies geared towards paying his mortgage. But then, recently, the Oscar winner has been foregoing crappy flicks in favor of good stories like the recent "Frozen Ground" with Vanessa Hudgens and John Cusack. And then, at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and Venice Film Festival, the actor regaled us with his upcoming movie called "Joe." It's an adaptation of a 1991 Larry Brown novel and directed by David Gordon Green ("Pineapple Express," "George Washington," "All the Real Girls," "Snow Angels").

And you know what? "Joe" is being praised because of Cage's acting, something that the actor hasn't heard of in a while!

Roadside Attractions will release the movie this year, but here's the European trailer of "Joe."
