“Max,” the movie about a heroic dog, arrives in theaters this weekend but is the movie good? And is it worth your time and money? One thing is certain, it will tug at your heartstrings.
Here’s the official synopsis for MAX:
A military dog from Afghanistan is adopted by his late handler's grieving family in the U.S., where his close bond with the soldier's brother leads to a life-altering revelation in this family-friendly adventure from MGM and director Boaz Yakin (who penned the screenplay alongside writer Sheldon Lettich). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Two big movies this weekend, we have “Inside Out” for the entire family and “Dope” for those who love dramedies. Which one is my pick of the week? Take a look:
Here’s the official synopsis of INSIDE OUT:
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school. -- (C) Pixar
Here’s the official synopsis of DOPE:
A critical hit and audience favorite out of the Sundance Film Festival, in DOPE, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself. (C) Open Road

Shameik Moore takes the lead in the fantastic film DOPE and he carries the movie from start to finish! He plays Malcolm, an outsider in his city of Inglewood buoyed by the support of his friends Jib (Tony Revolori) and Diggy (Kiersey Clemons). Watch his amazing performance when the film opens nationwide on Friday, June 19th!
I sat down with Moore and writer/director Rick Famuyiwa (“The Wood,” “Brown Sugar”) to talk about their Sundance-winning movie.

DOPE is a must-see and one of the reasons is the affecting chemistry between the three best friends played by Shameir Moore, Tony Revolori (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”), and Kiersey Clemons. Blake Anderson plays their stoner friend Will who helped them commit one of the biggest drug deals of their life! I sat down with Revolori, Clemons, and Anderson to talk about their interest on the film, their characters, and why DOPE is DOPE! Oh yeah, I can’t be butch like Clemon’s Diggy character!

I love DOPE! It’s an intelligent dramedy full of memorable characters like Chanel Iman’s Lily and Quincy Brown’s Jaleel. I sat down with the actors to talk about their brilliant new movie.
