Logan Lerman Talks About "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" 

Logan Lerman returns as the son of Poseidon in the sequel "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters." This time, he and his demigod friends has one mission -- to find the mythical Golden Fleece. I interviewed Lerman, who was so good in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," about his return to the magical world of Percy Jackson. We talked about:

*** What made him want to return to the role?
*** How did he do the jump from a small indie like "Perks" to a big blockbuster like "Percy?"
*** The film's attempt to play with Greek mythology
*** Percy's search for heroism
*** What does he want the fans to look forward to in the sequel?
*** His family's second home in my hood, Palm Springs!

"The Smurfs 2" and "2 Guns" Movie Reviews -- Which One is My Pick of the Week? 

Two movies to choose from this weekend, we have the live-action animated hybrid “The Smurfs 2” and the bang bang action of “2 Guns” starring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington.

In “The Smurfs 2,” the evil Gargamel (Hank Azaria) returns to wreak havoc once again. This time, he wants to kidnap Smurfette (Katy Perry) so he can know the magical blue secret from Papa Smurf (Jonathan Winters). Neil Patrick Harris also returns as Patrick, the Smurfs’ human friend, and he’s there to help our favorite blue creatures rescue Smurfette. This star-studded extravaganza features the voice work of Christina Ricci (Vexy), J.B. Smoove (Hackus), George Lopez (Grouchy Smurf), and Anton Yelchin (Clumsy Smurf). Even Shaun White, Shaquille O’Neal, Jimmy Kimmel, and Mario Lopez join in on the fun.

“2 Guns” tells the tale of a DEA agent (Washington) and a naval intelligence officer (Wahlberg) who go undercover to infiltrate a drug cartel. But here’s the catch – neither knew that the other was an agent. Based on the Boom! Studios graphic novels and directed by Baltasar Kormakur, Paula Patton, James Warden, and Bill Paxton complete the cast.

So which one is my pick of the week? Take a look!
