I Want That: Real-Life Jumanji Board Game

It was almost 20 years ago that director Joe Johnston ( HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS , THE PAGEMASTER ) brought us the family adventure movie JUMANJI starring Robin Williams . In the movie, a supernatural board game makes wild animals materialize with each player's move. It was great fun and even left an opening for a sequel which hasn't been conjured up surprisingly. I...

Review: Peeples

PLOT: Eager to meet his girlfriend Grace's ( Kerry Washington ) family, Wade ( Craig Robinson ) shows up uninvited at a family retreat. He's shocked to discover that not only has Grace's family never heard of him, but that her superior court judge father- Virgil (David Alan Grier) is an imposing patriarch with nothing but contempt for any man that he feels is usurping his...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Peeples stars David Alan Grier and S. Epatha Merkerson

To be honest, every time I see S. Epatha Merkerson I think of her tough as nails work as Lieutenant Anita Van Buren from the hit television series “Law and Order.” This is not to say that she isn’t an incredible and diverse actress, but she certainly made an impression on the long running show.

Craig Robinson is one of the funniest actors today while Kerry Washington has proven to be quite the actress in the past few years, recently with DJANGO UNCHAINED and her hit series “Scandal.” When I sat down with these two talents, I have to say that I...

Craig Robinson and Kerry Washington headline the trailer for Peeples, the first decent looking movie with Tyler Perry's name on it

I have tried watching a few Tyler Perry movies and have not enjoyed a single one. It is not a question of relating to the subject matter but rather the fact that they are not very good movies. I will give Perry credit for being doing everything himself and making a ton of money doing it, but at least when Robert Rodriguez does it, his movies turn out good. This latest movie to...

Stranger than fiction: Jumanji to be rewritten by Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium scribe Zach Helm

Riddle me this, Batman. If someone makes an original movie based on an old board game and it flops (BATTLESHIP), and everybody lets their board game-based projects fall into development hell, do you: A) Learn your lesson and try to stay away from boardgames. B) Shrug it off, saay "eh, it happened to somebody else," and move ahead with a remake an original movie based on a now-old...
