The Han Solo Movie Is Titled SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Review

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Review By: Matt Cummings
Mr. Peabody & Sherman satisfies everyone's need for heartwarming animated fare. 
Among the early entries into American animated television, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show represented the closest thing to high-brow entertainment. A trio of weekly animated shorts, the show began airing in the late 1950's, and followed the adventures of an oddly-paired squirrel and moose. Nestled somewhere between that and Boris and Natasha was the time-travel historical skit Mr. Peabody & Sherman, which arrives this week into theaters. The result is a welcomed relief from the explosion-filled manliness of late Winter, and might even tug at your heartstrings.



The smartest person in the world is no human, but the dog Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell), a canine of industry, adviser to heads of state, accomplished musician and a top chef. His adopted son Sherman (voiced by Max Charles) forms a duo that travels through time to learn about h…

TV: Review Once Upon A Time In Wonderland "Nothing To Fear"

TV: Review Once Upon A Time In Wonderland "Nothing To Fear" By: Sue
After a long hiatus, Once Upon A Time In Wonderland is back. Let’s just hope that the focus is less on the Cyrus/Alice love story, and more on the Knave/Alice friendship, because that is really the better part of the show. The Knave saved Alice, but at what cost? Beside neverending slavery?

The Knave has a watery and very bumpy ride in his new home, the genie bottle, when Lizard finds him and sets him free. She’s so happy to see him, but he thought she was dead and he was stone. The Knave tries to go in search of Alice, but Lizard tells him to wait, and he does. He’s a full fledge genie now, and she has three wishes to make.


Alice awakens in a tent with Cyrus, it wasn’t all a dream he is still free. She got her heart’s desire, they’re together, but there’s still the matter of the red queen. Alice doesn’t want to work with the Queen, not remembering what the Knave did to save them, she doesn’t remember any of …

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For NEED FOR SPEED In San Francisco

Win Tickets To An Advance For NEED FOR SPEED Tuesday, March 11th at 7:30 PM in San Francisco.


DreamWorks Pictures’ “NEED FOR SPEED” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, "Need for Speed" captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.


The film centers around Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. Struggling to keep his f…

300: Rise Of An Empire Review

300: Rise of an Empire Review By: Matt Cummings
300: Rise of An Empire is an orgy of bloody warfare and overtly nude women. And we're fine with that.
Among our favorite films is the festival of gore and nudity known as 300 - it launched the careers of Actors Lena Headey and Gerard Butler, and made Zack Snyder an over-night household directorial name. We'd never seen anything like it before, and Hollywood responded by trying to duplicate its success to no avail. With the long-overdue release of 300: Rise of an Empire, we realize the sometimes the best way to duplicate success is to do it yourself.


After the death of King Leonidas' 300, the Persian Army marches towards the various and disunited city-states, targeting Athens herself. While King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) assaults the first democratic city in Europe, the brutal naval commander Artemisia (Eva Green) sets her eyes northward to Admiral Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton), who uses brilliant tactics to frustrate and…

TV Recap: Arrow "The Promise" Season 2 Episode 15 By: Sue
Oliver and Slade have finally come face to face, and look to be gearing up for one heck of a showdown after the handshake heard around the world. I just hope it lives up to my expectations.


Oliver asks Slade what he’s doing here, and he;s just made a sizable contribution to his mother’s campaign. He gets a little handsy with her as he alludes to how similar they are and plot the best course. Wade’s come bearing a gift of rum, and Oliver eye balls the glasses as Slade toasts to friendship. Slade asks after a model yacht, and Oliver refuses to talk about the island.

Past. Oliver trains and shoots arrows at his tree targets, does some shirtless pull-ups, and hauls butt across baring landscapes all while hitting bulls eyes. Slade thinks that Shado would be proud, but Ollie points out that the trees don’t move or shoot back.


Shade goes over the best course of action on the ship, while Sara whips up a stinky concoction. Oli…

TV Recap: Reign "The Consummation" Season One Episode 13

TV Recap: Reign "The Consummation" Season One Episode 13
By: Sue
Thank goodness for a back season pickup from the CW, otherwise this would be the season finale. Hurrah for small favors. So tonight answers the question Francis or Bash?

It’s primping and pinning and preparing execution. Even as she’s practicing her death, there’s still much to do.


Lola tries to get ready for more riding. They’re delayed over Lola’s horrible horsemanship. Francis finds it ironic that if all goes well with their plan, that Bash will be married to Mary, his mother Catherine will be free, and he will be exiled. They plan to keep their little liaison a secret, though the sex eyes will surely give them away.

Nostradamus leaves his bedmate. He thinks that he’s lost his gift, and so he must get close to that which brought it to him, death. He tries to hang himself, but she stops him. His vision was wrong, he will hang for real for it he believes.


Catherine continues to plan her death, but Henry doesn’…

Annie Remake Trailer Is Here

Yesterday we got a look at the poster for the new, Will Smith and Jay-Z-spearheaded version of warbling orphan musical Annie, which was the herald for this first trailer.

In what could be called a remix of the 1981 film, this Annie finds Beasts Of The Southern Wild’s breakout young star Quvenzhané Wallis as the titular moppet, this time a foster child in a home run by the mean Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). The idea that her parents might be out there somewhere adds a little spice to the tale, even as the trailer appears to give most of the story’s turns away (for the three people who didn't already know what's coming).

The updates continue beyond Annie’s situation and the modern-day setting, with Jamie Foxx as tough-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks in place of the original Daddy Warbucks, who meets our heroine and decides that being seen to help her would in turn boost his campaign. What he doesn’t count on is Annie slowly softening his heart. And after…
