This New 'Moana' Teaser Is a Slice of Beautiful Magic

Thu, 07/21/2016 - 06:48

People don't yet quite know what to expect from Moana, the forthcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios movie. Well, that's not entirely true. Audiences can reliably expect it to be good.

But audiences don't really know what to expect about the tone, plot or characters. That's kind of how Disney Animation sells its...

'Pretty Woman' Director Garry Marshall Dies at 81

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 08:39

In the 1970s, Garry Marshall gave us one of the earliest, and still greatest extended universes, consisting of 1950s nostalgia, a couple of goofy brewery workers and an alien from the planet Ork. More recently he'd been known for a certain kind of ensemble comedy with his movies New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day and this year's Mother's Day, but Marshall had an impressively diverse career over many decades before his death yesterday at 81 due to complications...

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 06:12

To many, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is simply remembered as that '90s kids show where teens got orders from a giant floating head to put on spandex and go fight lumpy monsters that kept popping up in the middle of the desert. There have been over 20 different versions of Power Rangers TV shows since the Mighty Morphin days of the early '90s. Granted, they pretty much all follow the same formula of teens fighting monsters, but still, Power Rangers has been on the air in...

Watch Vin Diesel in First 'xXx: The Return of Xander Cage' Trailer

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 06:07

"Guns, girls, global domination." Those words, spoken by Ruby Rose in the first trailer for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, provide an apt description for an action movie that looks like it will tip the scales of believability from its very first frame. That was also a hallmark of xXx back in 2002, which introduced Vin Diesel as Xander Cage, an extreme sports athlete who was recruited by the U.S. government for a secret mission. Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson)...

Review: Are Your Kids Ready for 'Ghostbusters'?

Sun, 07/17/2016 - 21:36

My seven-year-old son and I have a system for grading the trailers before a movie starts. If we both lean over and whisper, "Yes!" then it is automatically determined that the two of us will go see the movie when it comes out. If one of us is a strong yes and the other is a soft maybe, we can plead our case and hope for the best. When we first saw the trailer for Ghostbusters, I was certain my son, who is usually not a fan of movies he thinks will be overly scary, would say,...
