BRAD'S STATUS Comes To Amazon Prime Video This Friday

Amazon Studios’ BRAD'S STATUS will be released on Amazon Prime Video THIS FRIDAY, March 2, 2018 When Brad Sloan ( Ben Stiller ) accompanies his college bound son to the East Coast, the visit triggers a crisis of confidence in Brad’s Status, writer and director Mike White’s bittersweet comedy. Brad has a satisfying career and a comfortable life in suburban Sacramento where he lives with his sweet-natured wife, Melanie ( Jenna Fischer ), and their musical prodigy son, Troy ( Austin Abrams ), but it’s not quite what he imagined during his college glory days. Showing Troy around Boston, where Brad went to university, he can’t help comparing his life with those of his four best college friends: a Hollywood bigshot ( White ), a hedge fund founder ( Luke Wilson ), a tech entrepreneur ( Jemaine Clement ), and a political pundit and bestselling author ( Michael Sheen ). As he imagines their wealthy, glamorous lives, he wonders if this is all he will ever amount to. But when circumstan

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See The BFG In Minneapolis

Enter for a chance to see THE BFG on June 28th at 7:00 PM in Minneapolis. The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” to life. Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s “ The BFG ” tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. The BFG ( Mark Rylance ), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler ( Bill Hader ) and Fleshlumpeater ( Jemaine Clement ) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from Lo

Rio Movie Review By: Beevers

Rio Movie Review By: Beevers Rio starts with a baby Blue Macaw watching, from his nest, the other birds of the rain forest dancing, singing, and flying. Just as he is about to try to fly from his nest he sees smugglers catching the other birds and he finds himself caught and stuffed into a cage. Next we see a truck with exotic animals driving through Minnesota and a crate falls out the back. Lucky for this baby bird he is found by a sweet little girl named Linda ( Leslie Mann ). Linda and Blu ( Jesse Eisenberg ) are inseparable for the next 15 years, where we see a great photo montage of them growing up together, which reminded me of Up. Then Linda and Blu are visited by an scientist from Brazil who tells them that Blu is the last known male of his species and that he has a female for Blu to breed with. Linda and Blu soon find themselves in Rio de Janeiro where Blu meets Jewel ( Anne Hathaway ) the female Blue Macaw. Jewel doesn't really want anything to do with Blu, s
