Get ready for a good cry - The Choice, Nicholas Sparks's latest adaptation, is hitting theaters this week. As the cameras rolled in 2014, I visited the breathtaking set in the coastal neighborhood of Middle Sound Loop in Wilmington, Nc. Fans of the novel will recall there are two parts to this heart-tugging story: Travis (Benjamin Walker) and Gabby (Teresa Palmer) fall in love and then Travis makes the hardest decision of his life. I experienced a day of the couple's cute beginning, when the veterinarian and physician's assistant are getting to know each other as neighbors. The warm weather lends itself to Southern cookouts, sunny boat rides, and of course, the opportunity for party-loving Travis to tick off Gabby. In between these fun scenes, the author and actors sat down with me to chat one on one about bringing this Sparks fan favorite to life. Read on for all the details, »

With February being a short month, genre fans only have a handful of horror and sci-fi arriving on VOD to look forward to over the next few weeks. One of my own most anticipated movies for 2016, the horror anthology Southbound, makes its VOD debut on February 9th, courtesy of The Orchard. For those of curious about two of the more buzzed-about remakes in some time – Martyrs and Cabin Fever – both films arrive on VOD on February 2nd and February 12th respectively.

55 years ago today, audiences got to meet Pongo, Perdita, Patch, and 98 more spotted puppies when “101 Dalmatians” opened in theaters. The film is often credited with saving Disney Animation — 1959’s “Sleeping Beauty” under-performed at the box office, leading to massive layoffs. Roy O. Disney, Walt’s brother, even tried to convince Walt to shut down their animation department and shift focus to TV production. Fortunately for Baloo, Ariel, Simba, Elsa and all the animated Disney greats that were yet to come, “101 Dalmatians” was a box office hit — it was the 10th highest grossing film of 1961 in the U.S. and Canada. And the characters of “101 Dalmatians” have made their mark on pop culture in the 55 years since. Cruella de Vil, the movie’s villain who wants to turn the puppies into a dog-skin fur coat, ranked at #39 on AFI’s list of the top 50 movie villains of all time. Glenn Close »
