Before “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” started during our press screening, we all saw director Zack Snyder making a plea to not reveal any spoilers. So in honoring his wishes, this is a spoiler-free review, I just want to enumerate the pros and cons of the superhero movie.
But first, here’s what you need to know -- there’s Batman (Ben Affleck) fighting Superman (Henry Cavill) and there’s a dawning of the Justice League, hence the appearances of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and the Flash (Ezra Miller). There’s also Amy Adams as Lois Lane, trying to figure it all out, and the mysterious Alexander Luthor played by Jesse Eisenberg.
That’s pretty much what you need to know. Now, let’s talk about what’s good about the movie. Read More...

We also have “The Confirmation” from the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of “Nebraska,” Bob Nelson, making his directorial debut. This one has Clive Owen and Jaeden Lieberher as father and son who must bond one weekend.
Which one is my pick of the week?

Clive Owen and Jaeden Lieberher are both delightful on and off screen! They play father and son in the new fantastic movie “The Confirmation” from “Nebraska” screenwriter Bob Nelson making his directorial debut. Owen plays an alcoholic and absent father to Lieberher’s Anthony. The crux of the movie is Owen’s character’s search for his missing tool box.
I love “The Confirmation!” It’s funny and charming and deeply thought-provoking about fatherhood with a little slice of Americana and Catholicism! This one’s witty and brilliant!
I hope you enjoy my interview with Owen and Lieberher as much as I do! “The Confirmation” opens Friday and also available on iTunes.

The lovely Shailene Woodley returns to the role of Tris in the latest “Divergent” installment. And her character is as feisty as ever! But in real life, Woodley is sweet and very down-to-earth, and she gave me a great big hug when I entered the room. Awwwwwwww :)

Theo James (Four) was in London during the press junket for “The Divergent Series: Allegiant.” But no matter how far, you could still feel the actor’s energy via satellite interview! And he was fun as always! Check out my interview with the actor and find out what he relishes the most about returning back to the character of Four! Hint: very tight HA!
