Wed, 07/29/2015 - 08:04

The credits for Babe had barely started when my six-year-old turned to me and said, “I want to be a vegetarian.” I glanced back to the screen, at the long list of people involved in the making of the film, and I wondered if I should send them all “thank you” cards, perhaps a nice fruit basket. Maybe I could find out where they were registered. My son was the final family member to give up meat. His older brother had a six-month lead on his decision, and my wife...

How do you maintain your status as the biggest movie fan in the world (in your mind) once you have a baby? Early on, their fussiness can interrupt even the shortest of films at any moment, ruining a simple Friday night rental. And when they grow out of that, they need to be entertained.

Tom Cruise is one of the world's biggest movie stars, and all it takes is a few minutes in his presence to see why.

Watch Simon Pegg Describe 'Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation' Using Only Emojis

Tue, 07/28/2015 - 05:13

Ah, emojis... you love 'em, you hate 'em, and you can't stop using them.  Emojis work because they force us to think more visually and express ourselves with imagery, which is part of the reason why they're so addictive. It's fun to see why our friends and family use emojis and how they use them (and why they shouldn't be using them -- stop sending me random flower-puppy emoji combos, mom!), and you can't help but break out a fist bump whenever Star Wars...

Catch a Wave: Celebrate Summer with Surfing Movies

Mon, 07/27/2015 - 05:00

Kids can learn a lot from surfing movies. And not just surfer-dude slang. Surf culture on the big screen teaches things like patience: Rather than going for that first wave, wait for the perfect one. And then there's also humility. Failure is inevitable; just get back on your board and try again. And, perhaps most importantly, they can show how to respect Mother Nature. The ocean didn’t bring you here, but it can take you out. So beat the heat this summer with a fun movie...

Mon, 07/27/2015 - 05:00

As we walked/ran down the endless hallway to Theater 15, my kinetic 5-year-old stopped dead in his tracks, staring up in awe at the wall covered in five enormous posters. “Daddy, Pac-Man! … and Donkey Kong!” he shouted in amazement. I explained the other posters to him, all of which depicted ’80s-era video games for the movie Pixels. My son’s eyes widened a bit more. He bellowed, “I want to see THAT!” then raced on ahead of me to our theater....

In Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise hangs from the side of an airplane as it takes off. Let that sink it for a minute -- the dude literally hangs from the side of a plane.

When it comes to wildly insane stunts, no major star takes the kind of risks that Tom Cruise does. He truly is a man who leaves it all on the field, so to speak, and over the years...
