La Vida Robot Trailer


NASA are sponsoring a highly esteemed robotics competition, where students from various schools compete to build a robot that can perform underwater. When four Mexican-American high school kids from Phoenix, Arizona decide to go for it, their parents and teachers are sceptical given that the previous year's winners was a highly funded project at M.I.T. They have very little money indeed, a little under a thousand dollars, but they have a wealth of determination and drive that brings them together to build a fully-functioning and innovative machine made simply from used car parts - despite their lack of technological experience. They may have the guts and the ambition to succeed in such a prestigious event, but the question is whether the judges will see that and value their project based on the heart and soul that has gone into it.

Veronica Mars Review


Very Good

Funded by fans, this follow-up to the cult TV show feels a lot like an extended reunion episode. But even those unfamiliar with the series will enjoy the twisty plot and smart dialog, plus the sparky Kristen Bell in the title role. And while there are rather too many characters for a stand-alone movie, they all feed nicely into the central mystery.

After escaping from the run-down seaside town of Neptune, California, nine years ago, Veronica (Bell) has become a New York lawyer. But just as she's on the verge of landing her first proper job, an old friend is murdered back home, waking her investigatory instincts. The worst of it is that her ex Logan (Dohring) is the prime suspect, so Veronica heads home to help him clear his name. Her private eye dad (Colantoni) just rolls his eyes when she slips back into her old mystery-solving role, working with her pals Mac, Weevil and Wallace (Majorino, Capra and Daggs). But three other classmates - Gia, Cobb and Dick (Ritter, Starr and Hansen) - are also involved. And the fact that she keeps putting off her return to New York annoys her boyfriend Piz (Lowell).

The most refreshing thing about this film is the way filmmaker Thomas refuses to play by the usual rules. Bell may have been offered a dream job, but we fully understand why she's blowing it off to help her friends. And the whodunit plot is just intriguing enough to hold our interest: we don't really care who the villain really is, but it's fun to watch Veronica dig through the clues and challenge every level of authority. And the script gleefully stirs in red herrings, side-plots and lots of suspicious-looking characters.

The actress' injuries were minor and she was swiftly released and told to rest at home. The other person involved unfortunately suffered far greater injuries.

From Up On Poppy Hill Review


Very Good

From the studio that brought us classics like Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle, this animated drama feels unusually low-key and realistic. But while the lack of fantastical elements leaves it somewhat dry, as if it should really be a live-action movie, the animation is still a lavishly detailed feast for the eyes.

It's set in 1963 Japan, where orphaned teen Umi (Bolger) lives with her grandmother (Hendricks) atop a hill overlooking a fishing village. She raises flags every morning as a signal her fisherman father, who died in the Korean War, then heads to school where the topic on everyone's lips is the impending demolition of the ramshackle clubhouse. As the nation prepares for the Tokyo 1964 Olympics, old buildings like this must go, but the students band together to protect it, and Umi teams up with student journalist Shun (Yelchin) to clean up the building and make a plea to the corporate boss (Bridges). Meanwhile, Shun is having a personal crisis: as he begins to fall for Umi, he starts to suspect that they have the same father.

The film never really weaves these two plot strands together, so as Umi and Shun try to save the clubhouse and work out their parentage, each storyline feels like a distraction from the other. But they both raise intriguing questions about the past, present and future in a nation still recovering from WWII. And the beautifully rendered backgrounds bring the period to life with artful detail. On the other hand, the characters are more basic anime shapes, inexpressive and a bit stiff, which makes it difficult to identify with them even when their stories turn extremely emotional.

Top 5 Terrible Films, AKA Is Sharknado Really The Worst Movie Ever Made?


Jamie Lee Curtis

To those of you, who know what Sharknado is – we’re sorry. As for the rest, the premise is a simple one – the film follows Fin Shepard and co. on their quest to save Santa Monica from the devastation of a series of shark-infested tornado. Yes, this is actually a film that exists, in 2013. There’s no point in going into specifics, such as the flat characters, corny dialogue or questionable acting, since the plot summary should be enough to put you off this one – except maybe in a drinking game/truth or dare scenario. As bad as Sharknado is, though there’s plenty of competition – the past few decades have provided is with plenty of comparisons. Below is a list of the top 5 Worst Movies Of All Time – the bad, the ugly and the just plain ridiculous of cinema. Read on to find out how Sharknado performs.

5. Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later. Oh, boy, where do we even begin with this one? The story of Laurie Strode, living in fear of her homicidal brother twenty years after the events of the original Halloween already hint of severe sequel fatigue, but bad acting, hilarious special effects and some truly cringe-worthy writing elevate this far beyond boring into so-bad-it’s-good territory. The line: “Jimmy's been suspended five times this year already for gettin' a little crazy with the STICK.” actually made it into the final cut. Enough said. The only reason this isn’t higher up on the list is that everybody loves a bit of Jamie Lee Curtis, including this writer.

Jamie Lee Curtis 'Offended' By Seth MacFarlane's 'Derogatory' Oscars Boob Song


Jamie Lee Curtis Seth Macfarlane

Jamie Lee Curtis has spoken out on her feelings about Seth Macfarlane's controversial performance at the 2013 Oscars ceremony.

The 'Family Guy' creator hasn't exactly been the subject of much praise over the last few weeks after hosting the ceremony, the least appreciated act being performing a crude song about several of the female attendants called 'We Saw Your Boobs'. 'Freaky Friday' star Curtis states that the show 'offended' her and has slammed the number, likening it to a 'public execution', mentioning that it turned the prestigious show into a 'cheesy vaudeville show'. 'The 'boob' song, as it will be known in perpetuity, may go down as the highest-rated Oscar number in history, but at what cost?' She wrote in an article for the Huffington Post. 'When did they turn into a 'roast'? At least at a roast you know what's in store. What if actors and actresses stopped attending the Oscars because it was deemed open session to ridicule and parody them? Would the Academy be so cavalier then?'

She went on to say that she has also gone topless for movies but added that it wasn't something she enjoyed. 'I am sorry that this is what we are talking about and not Argo's lovely win or Jennifer's amazing performance', she said. 'What we will be talking about is Seth's lack of class and a 14-year-old boy's derogatory word for one of the most beautiful, motherly and literally nurturing parts of the female form.'

The Tailor Of Panama Review


Good
Somebody told Pierce Brosnan to change his image.

In The Tailor of Panama -- based on John Le Carré's novel and directed by John Boorman (Beyond Rangoon, Zardoz) -- Brosnan trades in the sophistication of James Bond for the identity of crude, disgraced spy Andy Osnard, an MI-6 operative that has to be shipped off to Panama on account of his loathsome behavior. Once he arrives in Panama City, the bad behavior doesn't stop: Osnard immediately sets upon the task of uncovering "what's going on" with the Panama Canal. Rumors swirl that it will be sold to another country now that Panama has it back from the U.S. Or perhaps there will be a coup from a populist underground?

Continue reading: The Tailor Of Panama Review

Homegrown Review


OK
Movies about marijuana are historically slapsticky, funny romps (see the Cheech and Chong oeuvre). Homegrown probably started out that way, then turned into a typical drug thriller, only set in the northern California hippie community. Message to producers: Hank Azaria is a comedian, not a gun-toting action hero.

Christmas With The Kranks Review


Zero

As I write this, the time is 8:32 p.m. on Thursday, November 18, 2004, and I have just walked out on "Christmas With the Kranks" after roughly 45 minutes of mind-numbingly humorless, sit-com barrel-bottom idiocy.

An adaptation of John Grisham's "Skipping Christmas" that has been violently stripped of any semblance of humanity, this supposed comedy is about a couple called the Kranks (ha, ha, ha), played by Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, whose daughter won't be home for Christmas, so they choose to bow out of the festivities altogether and take a cruise. But apparently their choice amounts to a social offense of the first order in the bogus, plot-device suburbia where the movie takes place (during a transparently bogus winter). It even makes the newspaper.

Soon an army of neighbors are beating down their door like some Yuletide Gestapo, angrily demanding they put up their seasonal decorations while Curtis inexplicably cowers inside like a child.

Freaky Friday Review


Very Good

Hitting the nail on the head of mother-daughter relationships -- and doing so with amusing savvy and imaginative good humor -- Disney's "Freaky Friday" remake is such a sublimely fun-for-all matinee delight that it cleansed my palate of the sour taste of every bad movie I've seen this summer.

Yes, it's a live-action Disney family movie -- which has traditionally been enough to send shudders down the spine of anyone over the age of 11. But director Mark S. Waters ("Head Over Heels") eschews the studio's history of pandering triteness in favor of sharp writing, credibly clever characters and terrific performances.

Magnetic Linsday Lohan (whose charm also carried the studio's 1998 "Parent Trap" remake) and a revitalized Jamie Lee Curtis couldn't be more ideally cast as exasperated teenager Annabell Colman and her harried, head-shrinker mom Tess, both of whom are given new insights into their contentious relationship when their bodies are swapped through a fortune-cookie hex.
