On this edition of INTERVUE, I had the honor of interviewing comedian Craig Robinson who is making the transition to “Leading Man” and writer/director Tina Gordon Chism who is making her directorial debut. The movie that share these special firsts is the upcoming movie “Tyler Perry Presents Peeples” – coming to theatres this Friday May 10th. Peeples centers around a well-off East Coast family celebrating a reunion weekend in the Hamptons. However, their reunion is interrupted when their daughter Grace’s (Kerry Washington) fiance Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) crashes in to FINALLY Meet the Peeples.
In 1995, the movie audience was introduced to the comic book character who is judge, jury, and executioner rolled into one. Judge Dredd is a no-nonsense lawman who believed worship the law.

When I first saw the Warrior trailers on the small screen, my initial thought was this will be like another Rocky or last year’s The Fighter, but this film is in a league of its own. Warrior takes on the sport of Mixed Martial Arts combined with a strong, solid cast filled with dynamic performances by actors Nick Nolte and Tom Hardy. Now, I like to point out that I do not follow MMA but I was quite impressed with the fighting sequences and the dedication Hardy and Joel Edgerton put into their roles as brothers who have been touch for a while. Warrior will speak to the audience on so many levels and it will keep you guessing and rooting until the very end.

For a movie that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name nearly thirty years ago, everyone expected the remake of Conan the Barbarian to slay the audience. It failed miserably. Although former Baywatcher Jason Momoa steps into the role and gives it minor improvements, this remake cannot hold water to the original tale made by Robert E. Howard. This so-called remake is plagued with problems such as quick-paced sword battles, bland dialogue, barely used 3D and an underwater serpent attack that came out of left field. Conan the Barbarian truly follows the philosophy of fight and draw blood first then ask questions later. Now, if it only had a solid connection with the audience.
