The Lamberts Speak! My Fun Interview with Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne for “Insidious: Chapter 2!”  

I loved talking to Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne. They’re fun to talk to as they expound on the mythology presented by “Insidious: Chapter 2.” Wilson, fresh from the success of “The Conjuring,” is back to spook us again with his “Conjuring” and “Insidious” director, James Wan. Both he and Byrne are the Lamberts. “Chapter 2” explains what happened in the first film without being an exact copycat of the original. “Insidious: Chapter 2” succeeds in carrying the mythos from the first. Yes, it’s still creepy!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Why the sequel works well!
*** How did they find their characters again?
*** Patrick Wilson’s character twist
*** Going further into the further
*** The film as a domestic drama masquerading as a horror – like Kramer vs. Kramer vs. The Poltergeist
*** The Parker vs. Marilyn angle of the film
*** Decisions made in the first film can now be exposed in the second
*** I’m officially calling Patrick Wilson – the Scream King of this generation

Lin Shaye and Leigh Whannell Talk About “Insidious: Chapter 2” 

I sat down with Lin Shaye (Elise) and Leigh Whannell (scriptwriter and actor who plays Specs) for the sequel “Insidious: Chapter 2.” The film follows immediately what happened after the first movie. Who killed Elise? Director James Wan, who I’m calling as the contemporary master of suspense, returns with Patrick Wilson (Josh Lambert) and Rose Byrne (Renai Lambert) to the world of “Insidious” for this creepy sequel. Fresh from “The Conjuring,” Wan is back to spook us all.

In this fun interview, we talked about:

*** How the film successfully expounded on the mythology explored on the first film
*** The supernatural domestic drama of the movie
*** It’s a domestic drama masquerading as a thriller
*** Elise as the nurturer – how was it returning back to the role
*** Leigh’s advice to viewers

See New "RoboCop" Trailer, if You Care! 

"RoboCop," the reboot/remake (they're both the same words by now, at least in Hollywood) arrives in theaters on Feb. 7, 2014 and already, we have a brand new trailer from MGM/Sony hyping the crime fighter's new look! Here's the official plotline:

The year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe, and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex's life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

But no matter what you think of the reboot, "RoboCop" features a stellar cast with Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earl Haley, Jay Baruchel, and Michael Keaton all lending a helping hand to Swedish-American actor, Joel Kinnaman, who's playing our titular hero.
