Neighbors
While our review of the frat comedy “Neighbors” is quite glowing and the R-Rated laffer was a major hit this spring, not all of us agree that the comedy is all that (this writer anyhow). However, one thing that no human on the planet can argue about the movie, full stop: Rose Byrne is excellent in it, probably the best part of the movie and a total scene stealer evidently born for comedy. And sure, we’ve seen her in comedy before, most memorably in “Bridesmaids,” and “Get Him To The Greek,” but in “Neighbors” Byrne has a mix of charm and go-for-brokeness that is vastly appealing.

So, why another "The Amityville Horror"? Because they can. And because the last attempt at a reboot was in 2005 (you know, the one starring Ryan Reynolds) which, in Hollywood years, is ancient history. So Dimension Films and Blumhouse Productions are going to bring this back to life, and they are going Disney Channel with the lead.

The duality of humankind has largely been visualized, at least in cartoons and broad comedies, as a tiny angel sitting on one shoulder, while a devil is perched on the opposite shoulder. The inherent drama, of course, is watching as the character decides which symbol to listen to: the heavenly or the demonic. In the case of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" (the ungainly subtitle is there because it's based on a series of popular young adult novels, and because the filmmakers and financiers are convinced this will be the beginning of a long and lucrative franchise), this dilemma is writ very, very, very large. But the inherent tension of this decision is diffused by a painful amount of clumsily introduced back-story, thin characterization, and a pace that makes the "Twilight" movies, which this movie is clearly inspired by, seem positively speedy in comparison.

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
Now "Star Trek Into Darkness" is in theaters (to somewhat underwhelming grosses), JJ Abrams attention will now move exclusively (well, excluding the dozens of projects in the works at his company Bad Robot -- read about those here) toward "Star Wars Episode VII," his much-anticipated renewal of the OTHER geek-beloved space franchise. And with the film due for release in the summer of 2015, we should start to hear about new casting for the series, beyond what we already know -- e.g. that original central trio of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher are returning in some degree.

Watch: Trailer For Forgotten Julianne Moore & Jonathan Rhys Meyers Horror 'Shelter,' Now Titled '6 Souls'

If you're scratching your head and wondering where this seemingly random Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers horror "6 Souls" came from, we'll set the record straight. This is actually a long shelved horror from all the way back in 2010 that was originally titled "Shelter." In fact, the movie already went straight-to-DVD in Canada two years ago, and for whatever reason, it's now finally getting a release in the U.S. But things like this are held back for a reason...

Since the successful debut of the “Twilight” franchise, and especially in the aftermath of “The Hunger Games,” studios have been rushing to find the next big thing in the young adult genre, and Screen Gems is betting big on Cassandra Clare’s “The Mortal Instruments” saga. Set to begin shooting in Toronto in a few weeks, the film has found its lead villain in Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
