New CW Trailer Actually Makes 'The Flash' Look... Cool?!


Grant Gustin Tom Cavanagh

The Flash is coming, albeit at not quite supersonic speed. CW’s Arrow spinoff doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but the network recently released a trailer and clip for the upcoming show. And it looks pretty epic, or at least that’s the impression CW is obviously trying to make.

Grant Gustin
Grant Gustin as The Flash brings up inevitable Spider-Man analogies.

Comic book fans weren’t very enthusiastic about the network’s first foray into the superhero genre when it was announced at Comic-Con 2013, but this might be the trailer that changes all their minds. No, seriously, the trailer is really good. Those, who don’t want to get spoiled, however, might want to stick to the first teaser trailer, released earlier. The five-minute version does essentially give viewers a walkthrough of the pilot, so if you’re avoiding spoilers like the plague, skip it.

Yogi Bear Review


Good
There's no real reason for this live action/animation hybrid version of the classic cartoon besides the fact that digital effects allowed them to do it.

But at least it's rather undemanding good fun while it lasts.

At Jellystone Park, Yogi Bear and his sidekick Boo Boo (voiced by Aykroyd and Timberlake) drive Ranger Smith (Cavanagh) crazy with their picnic-stealing antics. But just as they reach a kind of agreement, things are complicated by the arrival of nature expert Rachel (Faris), who wants to make a documentary about the talking bears. Meanwhile, the local mayor (Daly) decides to sell the park to logging companies to pay the city deficit, luring Smith's sidekick Jones (Miller) in as an accomplice. It's going to take a miracle to save the park.

Breakfast With Scot Review


Excellent
A lively, realistic tone helps make this Toronto-set comedy much more than we expect, stirring in some thoughtful themes and honest emotion.

After being badly injured during a hockey game, cocky Maple Leafs player Eric (Cavanagh) finds a new career as a sports commentator. No one knows he's gay, living with his long-term partner Sam (Shenkman). When Sam's sister-in-law dies suddenly, he inherits his 11-year-old nephew Scot (Bernett), who is far more interested in musicals than hockey ("Who's Wayne Gretzky?"). As Sam is busy with work, Eric ends up trying to bond with Scot, adapting Scot's figure-skating skills to the hockey arena even as Scot helps Eric relax his mask of masculinity.

Frankly, the plot sounds like the premise for either a bad sitcom or a lame movie farce. Fortunately, the filmmakers take a refreshingly layered route through the story, breathing new life into the fish-out-of-water foster child genre in the process. It's the well-rounded characters that make this work, as they never settle into the stereotypes they could so easily have become. And the cast is likeable and engaging.

Bernett is the discovery here, creating an effeminate young character in just 90 minutes who's just as complex as Mark Indelicato's Justin after three seasons on Ugly Betty. Scot also brings a strong tinge of emotion to the comedy as a boy grieving over his mother even as he struggles to find his identity in a new setting. And his interaction with Cavanagh is telling and entertaining, especially when Eric starts worrying that Scot might be making him too gay.

The film's overall tone is a little uneven, wavering between Mighty Ducks-style silliness and much more serious family drama, including extremely heavy themes like drugs, death and sexuality in both school and the workplace. But it's written with a natural honesty that keeps us thoroughly involved. And even when the standard movie structure kicks in for the final act, we're caught off guard by how sweet and touching the predictable finale actually is.
