WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING screening will take place on May 14, 2012 7:00 pm at a Sacramento area theater.


Inspired by the perennial New York Times bestseller of the same name, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING is a hilarious and heartfelt big screen comedy about five couples whose intertwined lives are turned upside down by the challenges of impending parenthood.


Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane celebrity lives don’t stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy’s husband, Gary, struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, who’s expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler. Photographer Holly is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex isn’t so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a “dudes” support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is. And rival food truck chefs Rosie and Marco’s surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date?


A kaleidoscopic comedy as universal as it is unpredictable, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING finds humor and uplift in all the unexpected trials and triumphs of welcoming a child into the world. The film stars Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, Ben Falcone and Joe Manganiello.

DARK SHADOWS Movie Review By: Matt C

DARK SHADOWS Movie review
By: Matt C


Does DARK SHADOWS honor the trippy original, or cast further doubt on the Depp-Burton alliance?


DARK SHADOWS is a strange film to pin down, and that's usually a good thing for director Tim Burton (Batman). Over 10 films, he and actor Johnny Depp (Public Enemies) defined the genre of wacky with brilliant brush strokes, painting lush environments with memorable characters who defied convention. And while DARK SHADOWS contains its fair share of all the above, the film really exemplifies the "Jack of All, Master of None" mentality, something very un-Burton like. It doesn't know what it wants to be half the time, straddling between action, bizarre camp comedy, and watered-down horror, but doing none of them very well.


Depp plays Barnabus Collins, an 18th Century vampire who is awakened in 1972 after being buried in an iron casket for enjoying the taste of human blood. Being a nightcrawler isn't really his fault: that blame is laid squarely on the shoulders of the haughty witch Angelique (Eva Green, Casino Royale), who was scorned by Barnabus for another woman. Collins returns to his mansion in Collinsport, only to learn that the family's fishing business is sputtering. Together with the remainder of his modern family, Collins seeks to return the business to profitability while battling the semi-immortal Green, who's taken over the small town. The movie, inspired by the serious tone of the 1966-1971 television show, is a definite parody, seeking to turn those overly-dramatic elements into comedy.



But the script by Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and John August (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) just isn't funny enough. In the film's first act, Barnabus gets a lift from a VW of hippies; later, he eats them. A sexual romp with Green in the second act destroys her office; she smokes afterwards. These and other moments are supposed to be funny, and while Depp's fish-out-of-water take initially brings the laughter, the shtick wears too quickly. Depp's portrayal also seems strangely familiar; his role is really a mash-up of The Mad Hatter, Jack Sparrow, and Ichabod Crane, all of which were better in their earlier forms.



While Burton excels at assembling a terrific cast, including Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter series), Jonny Lee Walker (Trainspotting), and Michelle Pfeiffer (Batman Returns), others are underutilized or just plain unnecessary. Chloe Grace Moretz (Hugo) tries way too hard as the rebellious 16-year-old, Walker's role is mere window dressing, and even Depp's love interest Victoria Winters (Bella Healthcote, In Time) disappears in act two, suddenly returning in the third to profess her love for Barnabus. Even the soundtrack by long-time music partner Danny Elfman (Spider-man) feels out of place, sacrificing the big sound of Batman and Hulk for something less effective.

DARK SHADOWS reminds us that not all fond remembrances of the past are worth revisiting; it's no better than a rainy-day rental. Fans of the show will giggle lightly at the many tips-of-the-hat which propagate the film; teens and college kids will wonder if they can sneak out to see The Avengers. It casts doubt on the Johnny Depp-Tim Burton marriage, making us wonder if the once brilliant fire of Sleep Hollow is just a dream in the mind of Barnabus Collins.

Spider-Man Viral Dr. Curt Connors And Oscorp. Want A Job?

Via comingsoon The viral campaign for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man has been playing out all day long in cities across the nation and has now just revealed a brand new video that features Rhys Ifans' Dr. Curt Connors inviting ARG players to take place in an Oscorp Industries science program that focuses on reptile genetics. The company, it seems, is looking for interns and the application process appears set to begin on Monday, May 14th. Check out the video in the player below!


As we mentioned earlier this week, the Twitter account @scaleseeker coordinated a nationwide effort to track sightings of the film's villain, The Lizard. Throughout today, coordinates were revealed that led players to locations in Los Angeles, NYC, Atlanta, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Austin, Tampa, Minneaplis and New Orleans where packages were discovered containing Connor's shredded labcoat, an Oscorp ID badge and scientific samples of reptilian skin. By unscrambling the letters listed on each sample, the words "animal dynamics lab" lead players to the new site. Where the campaign will lead now is anybody's guess, but check back for updates as they become available.

GIRL IN PROGRESS Movie Review By: RAMA

GIRL IN PROGRESS Movie Review
By: RAMA


What did RAMA this of GIRL IN PROGRESS?


GIRL IN PROGRESS is the perfect mother’s day movie, not because it’s lovey dovey and all warmhearted, but because it’s a wake up call to parents who may not have been ready when they became parents but now they have to step up, wear the role, and take on the responsibilities for their children’s sake.
Eva Mendes and Cierra Ramirez are terrific, their chemistry is convincing and even though parts of the story may be a bit touchy for younger viewers, especially its depiction and explanation of a girl’s rite of passage, GIRL IN PROGRESS is there to remind us what’s truly important in our lives and it can only be achieved when self-centered mindset is put aside…


Grace (Eva Mendes) is a single mom. She is too busy juggling work, bills, and the very married Dr. Harford (Matthew Modine), to give her daughter, Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) the attention she desperately needs. When Ansiedad’s English teacher, Ms. Armstrong (Patricia Arquette), introduces her students to classic coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad is inspired to skip adolescence and jump-start her life without mom. While Grace becomes preoccupied with the increasing affections of her co-worker (Eugenio Derbez), Ansiedad enlists the help of her loyal friend, Tavita (Raini Rodriguez), to plot her shortcut to “adulthood”. But as her misguided plan unravels, Ansiedad and Grace must learn that sometimes growing-up means acting your age.


Make no mistake, even though this film is directed by a Latina filmmaker and the cast consists of Latino actors, this is by no means a film made solely for Latino audience, this is not a demographic targeted films ala Tyler Perry’s. Director Patricia Riggen went above and beyond to make sure the themes in GIRL IN PROGRESS are inclusive, universal and that they’d embrace the mother-daughter relationships of any background. The latin culture and the music you’d see in the film are part of the characters’ upbringing and lifestyle but the dilemmas are familiar and relatable.



I was a huge fan of director Patricia Riggen’s film Under The Same Moon (La Misma Luna), which was about a boy looking for his mother, GIRL IN PROGRESS in a sense, to me, is about a girl looking for her mother but her mother is too busy trying to recapture the youth she thought she lost the day she had her daughter. And so, the girl, due to lack of attention, decides to become an adult sooner than she’s supposed to, which is, without realizing it, her desperate cry or need for her mother.


Riggen treads this carefully without shying away from the message. There’s a girl’s rite of passage process, including dissing your best friend, being the bad girl in school, losing your virginity, and other steps that this film conveys, I sense that the film wants the audience to know what’s out there as far as what people think a girl’s rite of passage should and should not be like but, just to give you a stereotypical idea, to let you in on it or to inform you, but the film doesn’t necessarily agree with it.


The tone is light but not underwhelming, there’s a bit of soap opera-esque drama as well, the whole affair of Grace (Eva Mendes) and a married man (Matthew Modine), that part of the story is there to give Grace’s life an even harder time, all her efforts to make herself happy go to waste and she can’t see the blessings that are already in front of her.


Cierra Ramirez is a revelation, her talent is going to get her far in this business. Her character’s name is Ansiedad which apparently means anxiety, but anxiety is not quite the impression I got from Ansiedad, Ramirez plays her character like any angry teen, trying to fit in, trying to figure things out all by herself because her parents aren’t around to help her figure those things out.


Eva Mendes’ acting in this film is sharp, she’s on her toes every minute, energetic and on fire, seems like everybody else has to keep up with her, and in this case, that’s not a bad thing. Mendes’ character Grace is a personality that’s far from being mature and it takes more than reality check to get Grace and Ansiedad to eventually find and appreciate each other, if that’s not what mother’s day is all about, then I don’t what is.

GRADE: 4 out of 5
