Are We Ever Going to See "Men in Black III?" 


The threequel to the highly successful franchise has been plagued with many problems. First, we have the pesky script problems. It's still not finished and obviously not polished! But Sony and director Barry Sonnenfeld went ahead and started shooting in November, supposedly to take advantage of tax breaks in New York.

As you may have heard, the plot involves some time traveling with Will Smith's Agent J going back in time to 1969 to save Josh Brolin's Agent K.

Now, Alec Baldwin, who was scheduled to play the MIB boss in 1969 just left production citing scheduling problems!

But "Men in Black III" is still set to open May 25, 2012. Really? Should Sony just scrap the entire film? Do we even care for a third installment after hearing all these dramas? I wonder what Tommy Lee Jones is thinking about all this.

"Paul" Movie Review! How Many Extraterrestrial Kisses Does the Film Deserve? 


They fought zombies in 2004’s “Shaun of the Dead,” solved a serial-killer mystery in 2007’s “Hot Fuzz,” and now, Simon Pegg (“Star Trek”) and Nick Frost (“Pirate Radio”) reunite for the UFO comedy adventure, “Paul.” It’s a fun intergalactic movie that will not make E.T. phone home.


Much like Steven Spielberg’s 1982 masterpiece, it’s quite refreshing to see a sci-fi themed movie where aliens are not the villains. On the contrary, the alien in the center of “Paul” is a pot-smoking, wisecracking flippant who is just so darn adorable!

Seth Rogen, in one of the best roles of his career, voices Paul, an extra-terrestrial ambassador to Earth and current alien resident at the infamous Area 51. He decides to escape his top-secret compound and teams up with Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Frost) to find his mother ship and return home. Read More...

Mia Wasikowska Talks About “Jane Eyre" and Her Love of Photography 


I love Mia Wasikowska! She’s a fantastic actress, and in such a short time, has amassed quite a resume. From blockbusters (“Alice in Wonderland”) to Oscar-nominated films (“The Kids Are All Right”) to searing period pieces (“Jane Eyre”), Wasikowska has proven she can tackle any role.

Now, she’s the 19th film actress to tackle the role of Jane Eyre, and it’s a captivating movie with equal parts romance and gothic, and diluted melodrama. Watch the film right as soon as you can!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Her interest in working on “Jane Eyre”
*** Was it nerve-wracking to play a part that has been played multiple times before?
*** How she and Michael Fassbender managed to stay away from the melodramatic aspects of the novel
*** What’s the biggest challenge in tackling the role?
*** How she picks her roles
*** Wasikowska has another creative outlet – photography!



Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. The isolated and imposing residence - and Mr. Rochester's coldness - have sorely tested the young woman's resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester - and the terrible secret that he is hiding.

Michael Fassbender Talks About "Jane Eyre!" He Also Teases Us About "X-Men: First Class!" 


Michael Fassbender is such a down-to-earth, humble, sweet person. I had a great time interviewing him for “Jane Eyre.” In the movie, Fassbender stars as Mr. Rochester, and the actor injected the character with brooding, sexual charisma.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** What attracted him to making “Jane Eyre”
*** The challenge of playing a part that has been portrayed by many actors before
*** How he made me blush!
*** We switched gears and talked about his role as Magneto in the upcoming “X-Men: First Class”

Director Cary Fukunaga Explains “Jane Eyre!" I Love This Movie! 


Have I told you how much I love interviewing film directors? If you want to know more about the aspects of filmmaking, who best to turn to but the filmmaker herself or himself? Cary Fukunaga, coming off of the critical success of “Sin Nombre” decided to work on the period film, “Jane Eyre.”

I sat down with the director to talk about:

*** How he managed to balance romance and gothic (hard to do!) in “Jane Eyre”
*** Why did he decide to follow-up “Sin Nombre” with “Jane Eyre?”
*** The similarities between his two movies
*** How he directed his two leads, Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender
*** Was he inspired by “The Shining?”
*** Fukunaga adored the “Jane Eyre” version starring Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine. How did his new film compare to the older take?
