First Trailer for "Exodus: Gods and Kings!" See Christian Bale as Moses! 


Finally, the first trailer for Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is here, and boy oh boy, it promises to be epic! Like Cecil B. DeMille epic! Like a gargantuan "Gladiator!"

Take a look at the Red Sea parting! Listen to the cover of Simple Minds' "Belfast Child!" It's all glorious!

The film brings back to mind Darren Aronofsky's "Noah," but then again, did anyone see the movie? Hopefully, "Exodus" will not suffer the same fate so have faith all ye heathen!

In this adaptation, Christian Bale stars as Moses who dukes it out with Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton barely recognizable) so he can free the slaves and escape Egypt's plagues. So "Ten Commandments" here we come! But, according to Bale, there will be shocking stuff so Scott and company may be a bit liberal in adding or subtracting passages from the bible. Yup, just like "Noah."

I wonder how they will explain the parting of the Red Sea? Environment aka Global Warming perhaps?

Regardless, I still can't wait to see the movie when it opens in theaters on December 12, just in time for Oscar consideration!

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" also stars Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.

Watch My "Tammy" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does Melissa McCarthy Get? 


Melissa McCarthy teams up with her husband, Ben Falcone, for “Tammy.” They co-wrote the movie together and Falcone directed. Is their collaboration a must see or just a hot mess? Take a look at my review of “Tammy.”

Official “Tammy” Plot:

Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) is having a bad day. She's totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint and, instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It's time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she's broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option-with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammyhad in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs. (c) Warner Bros.

Here’s the cast of “Tammy”

• Susan Sarandon as Pearl, Tammy's grandmother

My Fun Interview with Melissa McCarthy for "Tammy!" I Love Her! 


The last time I spoke with Melissa McCarthy was for her super-hit comedy “Bridesmaids.” Back then, she was laughing because I was bowing down on the would-be Oscar-nominated actress. And she deserves to be bowed down to. In her new movie “Tammy,” the funny actress was multi-tasking to the core co-writing the movie with her husband, Ben Falcone (who also directs), producing, and of course, acting as a woman-child who must grow up, pronto!

I enjoyed the character-driven comedy and I’ve been telling everyone that it will give you an explosion of laughter for 4th of July! In this interview, we talked about her interest in making “Tammy,” working with the iconic actresses Kathy Bates and Susan Sarandon, and what would be on her playlist if she takes a road trip.

Susan Sarandon Interview for “Tammy” -- She's Back On Another Road Trip Movie! 


Yes folks, she’s my other love! In one day, I was able to interview my film goddesses Kathy Bates and Susan Sarandon, and now, I’m complete. Well, not quite. There are more film goddesses I want to interview. But I had a great time talking to Susan Sarandon, the Oscar-winning actress from “Dead Man Walking” and many iconic films such as “Thelma & Louise,” and of course, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” And in Tammy, Sarandon is in full comedic mode and she nearly stole the show as Melissa McCarthy’s hard-partying grandma who’s using her car and cash so Tammy (McCarthy) will take her on a road trip to Niagara Falls.

In this interview, we talked about her interest in making “Tammy,” her Louise character could have been all grown up now as Pearl in the movie, working with McCarthy, her heartbreaking scene near the end, and her favorite songs to put on her playlist.
