Grown Ups 2 Review. Reminds Us Why Adam Sandler Should Stop Making Movies

Grown Ups 2 Review By: MattInRC
In a Summer of good films, Grown Ups 2 is neither special nor memorable.


I've made my disdain fairly clear for Actor Adam Sandler, who's turned in a body of work that hardly ever elevates itself from gross humor. He hit pay dirt last year with Hotel Transylvania, but that didn't come from his studio Happy Madison Productions, nor was it written by him. I had hoped his success in the animated genre would encourage him to produce more family-friendly (and frankly funnier) fare, and to move past the growing number of disappointments and bombs that are littering a once promising career. Grown Ups 2 shows that he's neither learned from his mistakes, nor understands the more lucrative choices placed before him.


The original Grown Ups did very well at the box office, telling the story of Hollywood agent Lenny (Sandler) who returns to his old stomping grounds after the death of a friend. As the sequel picks up three years later, Lenny and h…

Look At Agent Carter From Upcoming Marvel Short

Here are some more pre-Comic-Con goodies, this time in the shape of a rather ace, Pulp Fiction-esque poster for Marvel short Agent Carter. The poster and some swish new images have been debuted by Entertainment Weekly in advanced of the Captain America spin-off's debut in San Diego next week.


Agent Carter is this year's Item 47, the Marvel one-shot debuted at last year's 'Con to general glee. While Atwell's wartime agent will pop up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it's likely to be a brief cameo as an elderly lady. Agent Carter, then, should satisfy fans yearning to find out what became of the character once Cap has set off on his ill-fated flight with the Red Skull.


"Fans of the first film really wanted to find out what happened to Peggy afterwards", elaborates Atwell, "so Marvel are also making a short film, which is basically 'What Peggy Did Next'." Judging by these new pics, the answer is pretty clear. She kicked some s…

Teaser Trailer For How To Train Your Dragon 2

The first How To Train Your Dragon was an unexpectedly moving and rather wonderful story of a boy and his giant flying reptile, and we've been eagerly looking forward to the second instalment. Now a teaser has appeared online, offering a brief action sequence from the film that suggests all the lyricism of the first film is present and correct (even amid the gross-out gags and Viking pratfalls).



The story this time sees a now-older Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) still partnered with dragon Toothless and exploring far beyond his home village of Berk, once a Viking outpost plagued by dragons and now one that's partnered with them. Says the official synopsis:

"The thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years later. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through th…

Jeff Wadlow To Deliver X-Force Film

Jeff Wadlow, who is readying for the August 16 release of Kick-Ass 2, has been tapped to write an adaptation of X-Force, an X-Men spin-off being developed by 20th Century Fox.

The news comes on the heels of various blogs reporting today that the studio registered X-ForceMovie.com a few months ago.

Longtime X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuller Donner is producing X-Force. Wadlow is now writing the script with an eye to direct.

X-Force was an early 1990s spin-off from Marvel Comics’ flagship Uncanny X-Men comics created by Rob Liefeld and its first issue set sales records when it sold five million copies. (The record was only surpassed when X-Men #1, drawn by Jim Lee, sold eight million issues.)

The original line-up of the team was made up of several characters from the first Uncanny X-Men spin-off, The New Mutants, teens who had matured into young adults. But also among the line up was Cable, a militant leader from the future who is related to X-Men heroes Cyclops and Jean Grey. His…

Pacific Rim Review. Pleasant Surprise

Pacific Rim Review By: Nicolas Souza
Big Action, Bigger Robots
Please welcome guest review Nicolas Souza. Nicolas will be reviewing movie from time to time.


Giant monsters, huge robots, and a decent story holding it all together; this is the easiest way to explain Pacific Rim. This summer action blockbuster wonderfully delivers all of that, but doesn’t blow you away.


Fans of giant monsters and robots will not leave the theater disappointed. The action scenes between the two are fantastic. On par with the action in other giant robot movies like Transformers, I believe Pacific Rim is slightly better. This is due to the limit of monsters on screen at once. With only a few monsters or robots fighting at once, there is no need to cut from fight to fight. This gives more time to the wonderfully designed Jaegers, German for hunter, and Kaiju, giant monsters.


Director Guillermo del Torro (Pan’s Labyrinth) assembles a human cast that fills its role nicely for a movie that’s main stars are the Ja…
