Warcraft in Theaters Now Plus More

WarcraftThere’s a lot to like of Warcraft, visually it’s fantastic! For gamers and fanboys, they will enjoy that. And it holds up fine as a stand-alone movie for those who aren’t familiar with the game.

Spent a great time coloring with these kids at the Boys and Girls Club of East Los Angeles.

The storyline is interesting even thought the dialogue at times seemed cheesy. And I can see a sequel in the near future.

We got to sit in on a press conference with some of the actors and the director, who talked about the whole process of making the film. And you can listen to it here.

We also took part in a friendly soccer match in celebration of the release of Warcraft and LA Copa America Centenario. The event took place at the Boys and Girls Club of East Los Angeles, where the kids colored and recreated some of the characters of the film; and they built their own interpretation of a castle too.

If you liked the first Conjuring, you are going to love this one; and it should be seen on the large screen with a movie audience.

It is more than a good scare, it is a love story, it shows the affection and love that Lorraine and Ed Warren had for each other.The Conjuring 2

I think The Conjuring 2 does its job and more. I personally jumped at least three times that I can remember.

In this film, the Warren’s, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits. And it’s one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations.

We got to talk to the actors (Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Frances O’Connor, and Madison Wolfe), and filmmakers (writers Carey Hayes, Chad Hayes, David Leslie Johnson, director James Wan, and producer Peter Safran) about the making of this new film. And now you can listen on the conversations.

Luis Guzmán, actor and youth advocate, has a new film opening on June 10, Puerto Ricans in Paris. A few of us got to talk to him about the film and why he wanted to do this project. We also talked about his thoughts on Latinos and Hollywood. The conversation was fantastic and we didn’t want to stop. It took place at the Boys and Girls Club of East Los Angeles, which was a perfect location for doing this with Luis.Puerto Ricans In Paris

Now you can listen in on the conversation with the hiccups and all. And we hope you’ll enjoy it.

The plot: NYPD detectives Luis (Luis Guzmán) and Eddie (Edgar Garcia) visit Paris to help a gorgeous French designer Colette (Alice Taglioni) catch the black market thief who’s ripped off her new handbag design. Also starring Rosario Dawson, Rosie Perez, Miriam Shor, Frédéric Anscombe, and directed by Ian Edelman.
