You can go watch Star Wars and I'll enjoy the Big Short with a cast that is second to none including Steve Carrell. Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale.

News For: Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Pierre Morel And The Gunmen Film, #1 Debut This Weekend

Perhaps the creepiest villain of all time is the character that Writers and Directors Joel and Ethan Coen created in the film NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, Anton Chigurh, now he's back going head to head with the greatest actor of my generation, Sean Penn, in a film that may prove this weekend to be the beginning of the next TAKEN series.

Why do we see the these movies when they're relatively similar in plot and style?  Simple. We love the result.

Seeing a film like this is like working on out on a speed bag...invigorating, enjoyable and relaxing.

Oh how I love being an American.

Now that SMU has been knocked out of the NCAA Tournament I'll use this film for stress relief and bet on it for a number one debut.

News For Actor Liam Niesson and Luc Nesson-Film, Taken 3 Is Amazing But Not As Good As Taken or Taken 2 With "Brad Richdale"

The film, Taken 3, like Taken and Taken 2 is a wild ride with some mind blowing scenes but the film doesn't have the same look and feel as Taken and Taken 2.

Nonetheless if you still want a little Luc Besson style adrenaline rush it still does the job.

News For Michael Keaton and Edward Norton, and Emma Stone--The Film Birdman Hits On All Cylinders

If you're a guy eventually the question comes up who was your favorite Batman?  Tough question isn't it?

It's a toss up for me between Christian Bale and Michael Keaton.  Sure, Val Kilmer and George Clooney were also great but I'll never forget the first Batman that I saw with my son Andrew (now 30, then age 3).

We ran into the theater because we knew we were late and I'll always remember Michael Keaton falling into the frame upside down as Batman and Jack Nicholson's first scene as the Joker.

I've always enjoyed Michael Keaton's work but like Mickey Rourke's performance in the Wrestler, Michael Keaton's performance in the Birdman is flawless.

This is one of those films where every frame, and every actor and actress is perfect. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is brilliant as the Director.

News For The Film Exodus God And Kings, Christian Bale, Ridley Scott, Adam Cooper And Bill Collage-Exodus Is The Home Run Of Christian Films

If  Ridley Scott announced he was filming three actors shopping at Costco, I'd pay for the ticket.

He is the greatest director of our time.  The same man who stunned us with an Apple commercial and upstaged the Super Bowl.

What's different about Ridley Scott?  He imagines the scenes and visualizes them in his mind while he's scouting locations.  His ability to do this is his greatest gift and this quality is what makes him the greatest Director of our time.

Exodus Gods and Kings isn't good, it's brilliant.  All the critics dumped on it but thank God critics don't determine box office success.  Most critics are too stupid to think through the eyes of the ticket buyer and once again they've been proven wrong.

When you beat a franchise as well done (and promoted) as the Hunger Games that's significant.

What Ridley Scott and actor Christian Bale as Moses have done is turned one of the greatest Bible stories into a brilliant adventure. Writers Adam Cooper and Bill Collage will now be in great demand in 2015 and beyond.

Congratulations to 20th Century Fox, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!

Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy In The Film St. Vincent May Be Seeing Oscar

It's that time of the year, where people start dreaming of Oscar and talking about Golden Globes and St. Vincent may be set to get both.

Actor Bill Murray and actress Melissa McCarthy are comedic geniuses and they along with Harvey Weinstein and Bill Weinstein could be laughing hard with big smiles through award season.

See the film it will have you howling in your seats.
