New "22 Jump Street" Trailer 


Fresh from the super-success of "The Lego Movie," directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have unleashed a brand new trailer for Sony's "22 Jump Street." I enjoyed the first one, I enjoyed Channing Tatum (don't we all?), and I enjoyed Jonah Hill. So we should all enjoy the sequel!

By the way, the sequel is not opening until June 12 but Sony already is noting that there's an alternate ending. Hhmmmm....

See Fantastic "Guardians of the Galaxy" Trailer 


Ladies and gentlemen, the first official trailer for Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy!" From director James Gunn (yes, he directed a segment to the most loathed movie of 2013 "Movie 43" so pray that this one is much, much better), the sci-fi super-hero adventure stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, John C. Reilly and the voices of Bradley Cooper (as Rocket Raccoon) and Vin Diesel (as Groot, an alien tree).

We'll see if it's worth all the fanboy and fangirl adulations when "Guardians of the Galaxy" flies into theaters on August 1st! For now, here's the trailer via "Jimmy Kimmel":

If you want to get inspired this Valentine’s Day, look no further than the world of cinema! From professing about your undying devotion to the minutiae of this thing we call love, Hollywood has given us a treasure trove of one-liners that provoke and entertain. I bet you that the romantic movies I picked have quotes that you still remember to this day.

So without further adieu, here’s my list of the Top 10 Best Romantic Movie Lines…ever!



Here are the movies featured:

1. "Jerry Maguire"
2. "Casablanca"
3. "Gone with the Wind"
4. "Titanic"
5. "Dirty Dancing"
6. "Brokeback Mountain"
7. "Notting Hill"
8. "As Good As It Gets"
9. "The Notebook"
10. "Love Story"

I just couldn't fit them all in, such as "Annie Hall," "My Best Friend's Wedding," "Bridget Jones' Diary," "Love Actually," and much more!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Watch “Winter’s Tale” and “Endless Love” (2014) Romantic Movie Reviews 


Two romantic films just in time for Valentine’s! First we have “Winter’s Tale” starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown Findlay as a couple whose love transcends time. The movie also stars Russell Crowe, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint, and a cameo by Will Smith as…gasp…Lucifer! This is from writer-director Akiva Goldsman based on the 1983 book by Mark Helprin.

We also have “Endless Love,” the remake of the ultra-schmaltzy 1981 original of the same name starring Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt from director Franco Zeffirelli. The 2014 remake is pretty much the same Romeo and Juliet rehash but this one stars Alex Pettyfer (“Magic Mike”) and Gabrielle Wilde (“The Three Musketeers”) with Shana Feste at the helm.

Which one is my pick of the week? Take a look:
