Lauren Bradshaw (ClotureClub.com): Some of my favorite parts about [I Origins] were the little Easter eggs in it, especially the National Geographic girl with the bright green eyes. I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about including that [in …

‘The Purge: Anarchy’ Review: Starring Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo & Zach Gilford

Emergency Announcement: “This is your Emergency Broadcast System announcing the commencement of the Annual Purge. At the siren, all crime, including murder, will be legal for 12 hours. All emergency services will be suspended. Your government thanks you for your participation.”

Director and screenwriter James DeMonaco returns for the sequel to last year’s The Purge, starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey. What could have been one of the most memorable horror films of last year, ended up being a less then average home invasion thriller, despite its intriguing premise and its $65 million box office bucks. Instantly intrigued on the announcement …

‘Sex Tape’ Review: Starring Jason Segel, Cameron Diaz & Rob Lowe

Two things come to mind when thinking about director Jake Kasdan’s (2011’s Bad Teacher) Sex Tape. One is that Cameron Diaz is in the best physical shape of her life (girl looks good!) and two, just like Kasdan’s Bad Teacher, Sex Tape has some weird moments and despite its talented cast who give it their all, it could’ve been better.

Happily married couple Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) have been married for over 10 years, have two kids and keep pretty busy balancing parenthood, their jobs and marriage. Though the two are sill very much in love, but as …

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Review: Starring Jason Clarke, Andy Serkis & Keri Russell

Posted in Film, Reviews by - Jul 10, 2014

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the first film of the year with significant sci-fi and CGI achievement. It’s hard to believe these apes are not real and instead actors are behind the CGI characters. Using motion capture suits and cameras that capture the facial expressions of the actor, animals have never looked and felt more real in a film.

2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes was fantastic and after recently re-watching it, the CGI still holds up, but in this film it looks even better. Matt Reeves (2010’s Let Me In) steps in as director and …

INTERVIEW: Joe Manganiello, Director & Producer of ‘La Bare’

You may know him as Alcide Herveaux in HBO’s True Blood, as Big Dick Richie in Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike or even more recently on the cover of this week’s People Magazine as Hollywood’s Hottest Bachelor, but once you see Joe Manganiello on-scren or on the cover of a magazine, he is hard to forget. Manganiello has been acting since 2002 and is a true fitness professional. Last year he published a body building book titled “Evolution” and earlier this year he starred opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in Sabotage.

Now in his directorial debut, Manganiello goes behind the curtain at one of the …
