SXSW: Chef Is A Blast, Check Out Our Video Review Shot On A Food Truck!
Favreauís movie is a return to his roots (and, depending on how you read it, a rejection of the popcorn blockbusters that have become his calling card in the days of Iron Man and Cowboys & Aliens).

Of the three main stars of the original Star Wars trilogy, it has been Carrie Fisher who has been the most publicly wishy-washy on the subject of Star Wars Episode VII.

Noah Has Already Been Banned In A Bunch Of Countries
A certain segment of Christians might be upset about Noahís message allegedly straying a bit from the holy source material, but that outrage is apparently nothing compared to the pushback so far in the Middle East. Prior to its release date, the movie has already been banned in several countries and analysts are predicting it will suffer the same censored fate in much of the region.

Our 4 Exclusive Hunger Games: Catching Fire Stills Take You Behind The Scenes Of 2013's Biggest Blockbuster
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was probably the biggest surprise for me at the movies in 2013. While I didnít hate the first film in the franchise by any means, its sequel was able to expertly enhance the strongest aspects of the established world and new and interesting risks.
