George Lucas on Love, Parenthood and 'Strange Magic'

Wed, 01/21/2015 - 08:24

    This was not the George Lucas I was expecting. I walked into his Skywalker Ranch in the hills of Marin County, Ca. thinking our group of mom bloggers would be interviewing the calm, low-key and generally reserved Star Wars creator. Instead, this was George Lucas the enthusiastic filmmaker, parent and husband. The 70-year-old dad of four (ages 33, 26, 21 and 18 months) was there to talk about his new animated film Strange Magic opening Friday, a fairy-tale musical...

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 10:11

Movie theaters are forever growing more creative when it comes to enticing their guests on and off the screen, even if it means bringing the action to the lobby and hallways as a new kind of preshow entertainment.

Tue, 01/20/2015 - 10:04

A comic book sequel, that is. Surprisingly, one of the biggest stars of Guardians of the Galaxy is a character that was barely in the movie.

Thu, 01/15/2015 - 12:00

Talk about something that definitely was not awesome. Was it because of its unusual animation style? Was it because parts of it were in live action? Or was it because Lord Business exacted his revenge upon those who brought him down?  We may...

Wed, 01/14/2015 - 15:07

Given how long it took James Cameron to make Avatar, we can be patient for the next one. And that's good, because we now have to wait a little while longer.
