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.

I, along with a couple of WAFCA members, sat down with Michael Pitt and Mike Cahill in Washington, DC to discuss their new film I Origins. After Michael pours everyone a glass a champagne, the director is the first one to open up about his newest film since 2011’s Another Earth. I Origins opens in Washington, DC Friday July 25, 2014.
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 …

And So It Goes opens in Washington, DC Friday July 25.

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 …
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 …
It’s 5:30 pm on a rainy Wednesday in Georgetown at the Capella Hotel.

After taking a picture together for the Boyhood Facebook page, we get down to business and discuss Linklater’s incredible movie that he filmed over a period of 12 years.
Boyhood stars Ellar Coltrane in a breakout performance, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Linklater’s own daughter Lorelei Linklater. The film opens in Washington, DC on …

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 …
