Finding Dory Review

Very Good

It's been 13 years since the release of the Disney/Pixar hit Finding Nemo, and filmmaker Andrew Stanton has opted to make a spin-off instead of a direct sequel, shifting the perspective to recount the life story of the forgetful blue tang. Because it centres on a personal quest, it's a very different style of movie, which makes some of the action feel rather contrived. But the characters are still vivid and likeable, and it's packed with meaningful themes.

 

The film opens with young Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) being taught by her parents (Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy) how to cope with her short-term memory problem. But she still gets lost. Then years later, after her adventure teaming up with Marlin (Albert Brooks) to help find his son Nemo (Hayden Rolence), she has a brief spark of memory and decides to find her family. Accompanied by Marlin and Nemo, Dory crosses the ocean to a California marine sanctuary, where they get separated. Dory gets help from cranky seven-tentacled Octopus Hank (Ed O'Neill), the perky whale shark Destiny (Kaitlin Olson) and a befuddled beluga whale (Ty Burrell). Meanwhile, Marlin and Nemo meet a pair of laddish sea lions (Idris Elba and Dominic West).

Finding Dory Trailer


Since Nemo and his father were reunited, the residents living in the coral off the great barrier reef have been the best of friends but Dory keeps on finding herself questioning her past. Now, everyone's favourite forgetful fish is about to set out on a mission to find her own parents. 

As Nemo and Marlin are both all too aware of Dory's lack of oceanly experience, they feel that accompanying her on her mission is the only way to make sure she's safe. The two little clown fish and the blue tang soon find themselves in water that they're unfamiliar with. 

Dory's search takes her to new locations outside of the ocean too, whilst at the Monterey Marine Life Institute the forgetful fish meets up with some friends - new and old.

"Muppets: Most Wanted" Isn't Just For Kids, Apparently


Ricky Gervais Ty Burrell Tina Fey

For a kids’ movie, The Muppets: Most Wanted has more than its fair share of decidedly adult jokes. Of course, it’s no surprise that a film starring top tier comedians like Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey would have a few jokes aimed at the grownups.

Muppets: Most Wanted
Kermit's back and he even has an evil doppleganger this time.

Those mainly consisted of a Russian gulag, looking just like you’d imagine a Russian gulag in an American film to look, and some running jokes about Europeans’ work habits and frequent vacations. The end of American diplomacy this certainly isn’t, but it’s more than just a fun-filled colorful romp for children. And definitely more complex than its 2011 predecessor.

The year's newest animation 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' is proving to be a favorite amongst cinemagoers as it lands at this weekend's No.1 spot on the North American Box Office, ending the reign of the epic sequel '300: Rise Of An Empire.'

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

The DreamWorks animation, which was released in theatres on March 7th, is a reboot of the 1960's television cartoon and features a highly intelligent canine and his adopted son on their time-travelling journeys with a modern twist. However, the pair's trip suddenly is cut short when they inadvertently create a time rift, which now must fix this before it is too late.

Ty Burrell

Mr. Peabody & Sherman is released in the US today (March 7, 2014) after having entertained kids in the UK for a month. The reboot of the 1960s television cartoon, starring a highly intelligent dog and his adopted son, reimagines the original adventures and puts a 21st century spin on the inventions and hijinks.

The Humour & Hijinks Of The Original 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' Cartoons Is Revived In A New Movie.

Renowned for its adventurous, child-like appeal and its adult-aimed jokes, the Mr. Peabody & Sherman cartoon first featured as part of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and has now graduated to its own, visually spectacular movie. Ty Burrell voices Peabody, the articulate genius canine whose adopted son Sherman (Max Charles) gets into trouble when he uses his father's time machine to impress his classmate Penny (Ariel Winter).

Harrison Ford

The big news this week was that Harrison Ford will join the Expendables for their third film adventure. Sylvester Stallone tweeted the announcement, then went on to mention that Bruce Willis won't be around this time, apparently because he asked for too much money. Stallone was also caught on camera poking fun at Arnold Schwarzenegger's "big ego". Before they re-team for the next Expendables movie, they're costarring in the prison-break thriller Escape Plan. Watch Sly talking about Arnie at Comic Con here.

The next big superhero blockbuster will be Thor: The Dark World, and we got a more detailed look at the film in a new trailer this week. Pretty much everyone is back, including Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba and Stellan Skarsgard. The movie looks like a huge-scale action adventure with a sense of humour about it. It opens in October. Watch the trailer for Thor: The Dark World here.

The Muppets Do Europe In Brand New Teaser For 'Muppets Most Wanted' [Video]


Ricky Gervais Tina Fey Ty Burrell

“The Muppets have always been about artistic integrity, not cheap tricks,” says Kermit in the first trailer for the original Muppets movie. He had a point then and it still stands now; Ty Burell, Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais – some of the most unexpected casting choices for this kind of film – definitely aren’t cheap. The producers even somehow managed to get Tom Hiddleston on the cast list, making this possibly the first Muppets movie to be watched by squealing teenage and 20-something fangirls (we assume).

Check out the teaser below.

Sofia Vergara Illness Keeps Modern Family Star Away From The Oscars


Sofia Vergara Ty Burrell Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences

Sofia Vergara’s illness was the reason that the Modern Family actress missed out on The Oscars. The 40 year-old  kindly decided that she would be better off watching the ceremony on TV, rather than attending and infecting the entire movie industry, in the process. Very thoughtful of her, though we can’t imagine that she would have had too much fun if she was full of flu; some reports have suggested that the Columbian beauty was even hospitalized by the illness.

The New York Post report that Vergara and her fiancé Nick Lobe were spotted at Boa Steakhouse in West Hollywood on the Friday night before The Oscars. Sofia reportedly “beamed” as she was escorted to the car by her beau, after the meal. It looks as though the illness must have hit sometime after Friday night in that case. On Sunday night, Sofia tweeted a picture of herself laying down in bed with one eye shut, with the message “watching the Oscars at home so I don’t give everyone the flu haha” so if she had been hospitalized with the illness, it doesn’t seem that it was serious enough to keep her in. Oh and for the record, Vergara’s commitment to wearing leopard still extends to being ill in bed.

Vergara was recently photographed looking much fitter and healthier on the set of Modern Family, as her character Gloria is seen learning to skate with co-star Ty Burrell. Leopard print skates were, of course, a necessity for the filming of these scenes.

Ricky Gervais And Tina Fey To Star In New Muppets Film, The Muppets ... Again!


Ricky Gervais Tina Fey Ty Burrell The Muppets

The new Muppets film, The Muppets... Again! will have a retro feel, as it harks back to the 1960s. Joining the crew of cotton-based favourites are Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell.

"It's a tip of the hat to the old-school crime capers of the '60s, but featuring a frog, a pig, a bear and a dog - no panthers, even pink ones - along with the usual Muppet-y mix of mayhem, music and laughs," the film's director James Bobin said in a statement. Gervais will play the sidekick to villain Constantine; Fey will assume the role of prison guard Nadya. And Modern Family actor Ty Burrell will play an Interpol agent. Sounds like fun. The Hollywood studio in charge, Walt Disney, said "The Muppets ... Again!," a follow-up to "The Muppets," is set to be released in theatres on March 21, 2014.

Bret McKenzie will once again be on musical duties - he won an Oscar for his song 'Man or Muppet' for the last film. 'The Muppets' made more than $100 million at the global box office, so the sequel will have a lot to live up to, but given the popularity of the characters, and the star-added value in Gervais, Fey and Burrell, we're sure it'll trump all Muppet records.

Tin Fey Said To Be Eyeing Up Muppets Sequel Role


Tina Fey Amy Poehler Ricky Gervais Ty Burrell

The Hollywood Reporter have exclusively announced that Tina Fey is eyeing up a role in the new Muppets movie sequel. Just days before she’s due to host The Golden Globes with Amy Poehler, it’s been revealed that Fey is a likely contender to star alongside Ricky Gervais in the part-puppet, part-human caper.

The sources that revealed the news to The Hollywood Reporter did not give away the details of the script, which will be kept under wraps a little while longer, but the character descriptions have given away hints of a ‘caper,’ it seems. Tina Fey will play a Russian gulag prison guard, apparently, if the deal gets the go-ahead. Meanwhile, Ty Burrell, the Modern Family star will also have a role in the movie, as a lazy Interpol inspector. James Bobin and Nicholas Stoller, are co-writing the script and David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are back in production roles, hoping to recapture the success of the 2011 movie starring Amy Adams and Jason Segel.

Tina Fey, known for her work on TV comedies such as 30 Rock, last featured in a movie in 2010, when she starred in Date Night. She’s also due to star in Admission, alongside Paul Rudd – that one’s due out in March.

Butter - Trailer Trailer


Laura Pickler is the proud and doting wife of long-time butter carving champion Bob Pickler. When Bob is forced to relinquish his title for that year's butter carving competition (an annual event in their small town in Iowa), Laura determinedly decides to step up and submit her own talents in order to keep the title in the family. However, her confidence is diminished when an unusual opponent also enters the competition. That opponent is 10-year-old adopted girl Destiny who is allowed to participate by her accepting but fairly sceptical foster parents Julie and Ethan. If that wasn't enough to spur Laura's determination then what comes next certainly will be. It is revealed that Bob has become hopelessly infatuated by a gorgeous stripper named Brooke who goes by the stage name of Tokyo Rose and who also happens to be entering the competition in a bid to snatch the butter carving champion title from Laura's reach. While the competition initially was created to represent the excellence in butter, it now becomes about power, politics and sex.

'Butter' is set to become a huge hit with its hilarious all-star cast, ridiculous subject matter and humour that is set to win the hearts of movie lovers everywhere. Directed by Jim Field Smith ('She's Out of My League') and the screenwriting debut of up and coming star Jason A. Micallef, you won't have to wait for 'Butter' any longer with a release date that couldn't be any nearer on October 5th 2012.

Starring: Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Olivia Wilde, Rob Corddry, Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone, Hugh Jackman, Kristen Schaal, Yara Shahidi, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Phyllis Smith

Morning Glory Review


Very Good
A snappy script helps make this rather goofy comedy much more enjoyable than it should be. And it also helps that the film is extremely well-cast, and that it has some pointed things to say.

Becky (McAdams) is an ambitious young TV producer who has always dreamed of working for NBC's Today show. After being sacked from her job at a local New Jersey station, she finds work at low-rated network programme Daybreak. Sparky anchor Colleen (Keaton) gives Becky a run for her money in the energy stakes, and when Becky lands jaded veteran reporter Mike (Ford) as cohost, things start to get messy. Soon her boss (Goldblum) tells her that the show will be cancelled if ratings don't improve drastically. So Becky takes drastic action.

The Darwin Awards Review


Good
Poor Finn Taylor can't catch a break. By all reports he's the nicest guy in the world, and he typically toils for three or four years on each indie flick he directs. When they finally hit the screen they flop. His last outing, Cherish, was a bizarre story about a cop falling in love with a girl under house arrest who he's assigned to watch. I guess it wasn't bizarre enough, though. I had to reread my review of it just to fully remember what it was about. Cherish bombed with a $180,000 gross.

Four years later, Taylor drops another oddball flick on us, and the trouble is obvious before frame one. For starters, the name of the movie is The Darwin Awards, which sounds like it's going to be a documentary about those nutty people who kill themselves doing stupid things, thus earning posthumous "Darwin Awards" (as written up in a series of books of the same name) for ridding the gene pool of their DNA.

Continue reading: The Darwin Awards Review

Friends With Money Review


Excellent
It's hard to be in L.A. - to live, to visit, to see in movies - and not think that being jaw-droppingly wealthy is the only way to live life. People drive tricked-out cars worth as much as the (astronomical) average housing price and think nothing of tossing away a few hundred on a pair of ripped jeans because they hug the butt just so. This casual relationship with opulence is the setting for Friends with Money, writer-director Nicole Holofcener's (Walking and Talking, Lovely & Amazing) new comedy about how tough the world can be for the haves and the have-mores.Not some "money doesn't solve everything" morality play - if anything, money solves a heck of a lot here - we instead get a more general look at the dissatisfaction and ennui striking women of a certain age, regardless of whether they are rich or not. (But not, apparently, if they are really, really rich - then they get to be happy.) It's familiar ground for Holofcener, whose semi-feminist films always follow a group of women trying to work out a sense of identity at a particular stage of life.So what do these women, walking illustrations of "having it all," have to complain about? Well, for Christine (Catherine Keener, a Holocener mainstay), the problem is her crumbling marriage to an unsympathetic and superior screenwriting partner/husband. Jane (Frances McDormand) is a chichi clothing designer in a life crisis that who quits washing her hair and is sent into fits of apoplectic rage by everyday aggravations in traffic and customer service. It's very baffling to her sweet, sympathetic, and very probably straight husband. Only Franny (Joan Cusack), the wealthiest of the bunch, seems to have a functioning marriage and a deeply satisfying life as a stay-at-home-mom (with full time help, of course - no need to be primitive).And then there is Olivia (Jennifer Aniston); poor, unmarried, childless, house cleaner Olivia. She is likely supposed to be the stunted one, but... it's still Jennifer Aniston; she's hardly a plebe. Olivia has taken to drifting through life, smoking a lot of pot, obsessively stalking a past (married) lover, and letting her current guy degrade mistreat her - and pay for the privilege. The film's title (and casting) suggest that Olivia is meant to be the focus, but her melancholic foundering isn't really given a priority in screen time. It's a good thing, too, considering her passivity doesn't always make her the most interesting.Friends offers little indication how these four women became close, with Olivia so much younger and leading an utterly different life. Franny comments that she isn't certain whether they still would be friends if they met now; but for the other two, there is the feeling they keep Olivia around to maintain a sense of superiority - their lives may be disintegrating, but at least they aren't maids. Olivia clearly has a tendency towards masochism, but at least her friendships offer something to aspire to.That is the crux of the appeal - and potentially off-putting nature - of Holofcener's work: Her women are complicated, troubled, and often inscrutable. They are not always likeable, or fleshed out to minute details, and they rarely experience grand transformations or realizations. But they are always relatable - who hasn't wanted to lash out when someone brazenly cuts in line and totally gets away with it? - and Holofcener writes them brilliantly acerbic and sharp, so her script stays jaunty and blithe (lean, too, at under 90 minutes).It might have no real resolutions to speak of, and male characters are shallowly drawn and peripheral at best, but Friends with Money is the kind of chick flick that offers genuine accessibility instead of rah-rah sisterhood empowerment. And if still working on figuring out who you are when you're already supposed to be a grown up offers no kinship, well, we've all sat awake at night, pondering where to donate that extra two mil so it doesn't burn us at tax time.Friend with monkey.

Dawn Of The Dead (2004) Review


Very Good
When there's no room in Hell, the dead walk to the mall. That was the message of horror master George Romero's 1978 anti-consumerism flick Dawn of the Dead. This 2004 remake by first-time director Zack Snyder takes away a lot of the social message, and fills it instead with plenty of head-blasting zombie-killing mayhem and a surprisingly unpredictable storyline that--while far from perfect--is a lot of fun to watch.

The plot loosely follows the Romero original. This time around, the star of the survivors' crew is Ana (Sarah Polley), a nurse who wakes up from a romantic night with her boyfriend to a nightmarish world gone undead. Her neighbor's cute kid has turned into a flesh-eater, and has taken a big bite out of her sweetheart, turning him into one of her vicious kind. And, all over her idyllic suburban Wisconsin town, the dead are walking again; they're hungry, and they can run like the dickens.

Dawn Of The Dead Review


Good

Cult horror fans, you can relax -- Universal Pictures has done right by George Romero.

The new bad-ass, big-budget "Dawn of the Dead" may be a liberty-taking re-envisioning of the zombie classic with speedier corpses and without the deeper human undertones of Romero's 1978 original, but the movie quickly builds to a sustained, spine-tingling crescendo from the very first sequence.

Art-house indie staple Sarah Polley ("Go," "Guinevere," "My Life Without Me") embraces her B-movie side with dignity as Ana, an overworked nurse at a busy hospital who keeps missing snippets of information that something ominous is happening. She hears that a patient who came in the night before with a small bite is now in Intensive Care and wonders why. On her way home from work she flips past the words "...not an isolated incident..." on her car radio while searching for music. She misses a news flash on the TV while taking a romantic shower with her husband before bed.

Continue reading: Dawn Of The Dead Review

Evolution Review


Weak

Director Ivan Reitman goes rummaging around in his "Ghostbusters" bag of tricks to give his new comedy "Evolution" all the trappings of a major laugh fest -- but the one thing he forgot was the major laughs.

Until the picture hits a slight stride about half way through, its few weak snickers come mostly from knowing winks at the intentional irony of David Duchovny starring in what is, for all practical purposes, a spoof of "The X-Files."

Duchovny and Orlando Jones ("Say It Isn't So," "Double Take") star as quack professors at an Arizona community college who discover living microbes on a meteor that crashes to Earth near their campus. Flush with scientific exhilaration, they soon realize these lifeforms are evolving at an exponential rate. In a day they've become multi-celled organisms. Hours later they're extraterrestrial worms. By the time the military inevitably shows up to take control and kick the professors off their own project, full-blown insects and reptilian critters have appeared.
