Gayle Forman’s popular Young Adult novel “If I Stay” is a captivating story about the beauty of life, death and love, and focuses on 16-year-old Mia who experiences it all after a tragic accident happens to her family. There is not a better and more poised young actress than Chloe Grace Moretz (2013’s Carrie and Kick-Ass 2) to take on the role of Mia. Moretz is mature and talented well beyond her years and I can only imagine how thrilled Forman was when she accepted the part of the character she created.
When anyone does a novel to film adaptation, there’s …

Besides an incredible cast coming together for a Robert Rodriguez movie, the best qualities of the Sin City films are the striking visuals and the film noir background that completely make over the film. The Sin City films perfectly encapsulate the feel of the graphic novel and blend it into the beauty of green screen filmmaking.
Rodriguez (2013’s Machete Kills) has already proven he knows how to tell this type of story with 2005’s Sin City, a movie that broke the mold in visual effects and made its mark in cinema as one of the most groundbreaking visual films ever made. …
Lauren B. (ClotureClub.com): Is this your first time in DC?
Chloe Grace Moretz: Yes, my first time… not hers [points to Gayle].
Lauren B.: Did you get to explore a little bit?
Chloe: Yeah, we got to drive around. I got to walk to the White House and took a photo in front of it. It was really cool! I love history so it’s really cool to be in town. [DC] and Boston are two of my favorite cities American history-wise.
Lauren V. (DCFilmGirl.com): Congratulations on the movie! Chloe, you’ve played so many different characters in your career: vampire, werewolf, superhero…

Films based on novels about a dystopian future have become wildly popular in the last few years. Starting in 2012, Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games hit the big screen with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson starring and the sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire following last year. Earlier this year, Veronica Roth’s Divergent found new life in film with Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet starring, and next month James Dashner’s The Maze Runner will also hit theatres.
But well before any of these books were even written, there was Lois Lowry’s The Giver, a short, but profound novel that many of …
There are two things you can count on if you go to see Into the Storm. One is that the special effects are pretty wild and incredible; and two, it is not Twister, even though it desperately tries to mimic qualities of the original tornado film. If you go into the theatre knowing these two things, there is a good chance you will enjoy Into the Storm for what it is: a fun B-movie with extra cheesy dialogue and some intense natural disaster action scenes.
Set in northern Oklahoma in the small town of Silverton, Into the Storm follows several different …
Director Jonathan Liebesman (2011’s Battle: Los Angeles) and producer Michael Bay’s (2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction) reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise is nostalgic, an adrenaline rush and pure fun. Though it may not be the best reboot in the world, it’s certainly worth seeing if you’re a fan of the comic books, cartoons or even the films of the early ‘90s.
Based on the characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens in New York City where we meet feisty and daring reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox). April is constantly doing little stories …

Marvel’s newest film Guardians of the Galaxy is pure awesomeness. There is no other way to put it. Not only is Guardians one of the best superhero films released from Marvel Studios, its one of the funniest films of the year and one of the best “star wars” films we have seen in years. Director James Gunn (2006’s Slither) brings his love for the comic book heroes to life on the big screen, filming it both in regular cinemascope and glorious IMAX, while each actors brings their own unique flair to the wild bunch of unexpected superheroes.
Set in a galaxy …
