I was so happy to see Famke Janssen aka Jean Grey aka Phoenix up on the big screen in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” So I was excited to talk to the actress about the popular franchise. In this interview, we talked about her participation in “Days of Future Past,” if her character has more narrative to explore, the socio-political issues of the “X-Men” franchise, her love for Wolverine, what she knows about “X-Men: Apocalypse,” and what would be her favorite mutant power. Take a look (NOTE: In the middle of the interview, the satellite went haywire and created a momentary hiss…sorry!):

It’s finally here – the long-awaited reimagining of “Sleeping Beauty” as told from the point of view of the self-proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil.” Angelina Jolie rocks as Maleficent and Elle Fanning is enchanting as Aurora aka Sleeping Beauty but is the movie worth your time and money? Take a look at my movie review of “Maleficent.” Oh by the way, just call me MannyFicent

Two big movies just in time for Memorial Day Weekend – First, we have the sequel “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” The old and the new converge in this time travel epic tale featuring our favorite mutants. Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Nicholas Hoult, and Peter Dinklage star in the film directed by Bryan Singer.
In “Blended,” Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler return to the big screen and we all know what that means – it’s time for Sandler to show his softer side. The two has palpable chemistry and it shows on-screen and off. “Blended” is about two single parents who meet unsuccessfully during a blind date only to see each other again in an African resort made for families, blended or otherwise.
So which one is my pick of the week? Take a look:
