The First Official Look At The ‘Passengers’ Trailer Starring Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence

09.20.2016 | By |

Finally! Here is the first trailer for the new Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence sci-fi thriller directed by Morten Tyldum (who helmed the fantastic “The Imitation Game”). For a while, not much was known about the plot… until now. The film has a similar vibe to Alfonso Cuarón‘s “Gravity” in terms of style and flair and that movie went on to win 7 Oscar awards, including being nominated for Best Picture. Worth mentioning, Colombian director and son of Gabriel García Márquez, Rodrigo García, also had a movie called “Passengers” starring Hathaway.  Nice to see Cuban actor Andy García making an appearance in the highly anticipated trailer.  Read More

How Lousy Was ‘The Sea Of Trees’? Listen In To My Review In This Podcast

08.24.2016 | By |

I had a chance to visit Neil Rosen, Bill McCuddy and Bill Bregoli on their weekly podcast – Sitting Around Talking Movies – where we tackled Hands of Stone, (1:31) a boxing film about Roberto Duran that Neil only seemed to like (De Niro was terrible in it, also, we were off to the chariot races with the new and awful Ben Hur. And if that’s not enough we look at Blood Father starring Mel Gibson as well as the ensemble film The Intervention and the indie The Sea of Trees with Matthew McConaughey.

Hidden Figures: The Film That Might Change Hollywood

08.15.2016 | By |

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RK8xHq6dfAo

I’m watching the Olympics last night as Usain Bolt bolted by all his so-called competitors, including Justin Gatling, and right after his win, NBC aired a TV trailer spot for the film Hidden Figures. The movie stars Taraji P. Henson and tells the incredible untold true story of three brilliant African-American women working at NASA in the 1960s where they served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. What most stood out to me was my reaction… it was bizarre to see a prestige period Hollywood movie about accomplished black women at the highest levels. And you know why…? Read More

The ‘Justice League’ Trailer Has Finally Arrived!

07.23.2016 | By |

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gglkYMGRYlE&feature=em-uploademail

I can’t believe I’m seeing this trailer. This film wasn’t even supposed to be made. It was some fantasy amongst comic-book heads. There was talk of production maybe happening in 2020, but in 2016!? YES!! DC’s equivalent of The Avengers premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con today and with no Superman in sight, Bruce Wayne wrestles up Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg and Wonder Woman to fight an unseen enemy. But again, where is Superman? The tone of the film will be on the jocular side, much like Marvel, but the look is straight up DC. This trailer is not breathtaking or surreal, perhaps because it’s not the official trailer? but it establishes the physical presence of the core characters, including Cyborg (I’ll be rooting for him above all others). Take a look, let me know what you think of the trailer!

8 Movies With Latinos That You Should See This Year

07.22.2016 | By |

Latino Movie Poster CollageIt used to be that whenever Hispanics appeared in English-language media, it was an aberration, a freak happening, a shocking departure (much like when Daddy Yankee’s ‘Gasolina’ was played on Z-100). But that’s not the case anymore. Look at the poster collage below (courtesy of Brian Latimer), it is a testament to how far Hispanic actors have integrated themselves into the fabric of American cinema and pop culture. In my latest NBCLatino article, I highlight the top 8 movies showcasing Latinos that you should keep an eye out for. It begins today with Zoe Saldana in Star Trek Beyond!

Weekend Look At What Movies To Watch On Demand

07.21.2016 | By |

If you’re a movie buff, which I know some of you are, you should really watch this 30m show on NY1 called – Talking Pictures On Demand. I was a guest for the second time and it really breaks down with a fine tooth comb the new releases and movies that are currently “on demand”. We reviewed “The Duel” starring Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson, “Len and Company,” “Green Room” and Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Demolition,” amongst others. Plus, a look at the brand-new Ghostbusters reboot. Click video above to have a look!
