RICHMOND, Va. — There's a little less bureaucratic red tape standing between you and your next brew.
To say that the new Adam Sandler movie, "Blended," is better than some of his other recent work — "Jack and Jill," for example — isn't saying much. After all, some natural disasters cause less damage than others. But none are a positive development.
Imagine it is Saturday morning. All the cartoon shows are over and now it’s adventure time on the ‘ol tube, featuring a classic sci-fi alien or giant monster flick, where radiation has run amok, creating creatures that are dead set on destroying (or at least squashing) the human race. Now flash-forward forty or fifty years and technology has finally caught up with the human imagination, and you get to see that fun old-school movie re-envisioned with realistic looking monsters and special effects. And there you have the 2014 version of Godzilla, a goofy, nostalgic and flat out fun update to the “King of Monsters” mythos.
My favorite scene from the surprisingly superb “Neighbors” happens to be one of the smallest. It features Zac Efron's Teddy watching his best friend Pete (Dave Franco) meet with potential employers in preparation for life after college. All Efron, who shortly before admits to possessing a less than impressive GPA, can do is stuff a lollipop in his mouth and walk away as his friend’s future comes to fruition.
You can't really watch the film “Bears” with any expectation of plot or even a plethora of factoids for your kids to spout off randomly in the car. There are a few of those for sure (did you know that a bear's sense of smell is seven times stronger than a blood hound's?) but the film's purpose is evoke as many “awwwwwws” and “squeeeees” from the titular animals’ escapades as humanly possible.
Those academic standards, which mostly raise the bar for students and teachers, requiring more critical thinking and less rote memorization, were adopted by Ariziona a few years ago.
Robert De Niro is a ruthless gangster; John Cusack is experiencing motel hell; a hot hooker with a heart of gold is on the run; a satchel bag with mysterious contents. Haven’t we seen all this before? The Bag Man desperately borrows from dozens of other dark and gritty crime-thriller films, but, unfortunately, it is more ‘bore’ than noir.
Many adults complain that today’s youth is dominated by video games and iPads. But no matter how advanced technology becomes, Lego will always be there to provide the building blocks for good, old-fashion fun. Every Lego box is a treasure chest of infinite possibilities, allowing us to construct castles, cars, and entire cities. Lego has fueled our imaginations ever since 1949. Sixty-five years and 560 billion Lego pieces later, we get “The Lego Movie.”
’Twas the afternoon of Christmas and all through the house, presents were opened and appetites doused. Get away from the mess and out on the town; these are the places fun can be found.
Can there be too much of a good thing? Where did that expression come from, anyway? If it's good, isn't more always better?
Feeling challenged in the crafty, do-it-yourself costume department? Or ill-prepared altogether for this whole dressing up on Oct. 31 thing? This easy Mesa Halloween activity has you covered.
Time flies when you're not wondering about the welfare of the Smurfs, those diminutive, animated blue-skinned forest-dwellers. Turns out they've been just fine since their 2011 big-screen outing, but there's trouble brewing in their new adventure-comedy that will require their curious blend of wide-eyed optimism and goofy enthusiasm to peacefully resolve.
Animals take center stage this summer at Tempe Center for the Arts’ “Animal Crackers” exhibit. Featuring works from national and local artists, the Gallery exhibit explores animal-related themes ranging from weighty to whimsical.
NEW YORK — In these hyper-connected, over-shared times dwell two kinds of people: those preoccupied with taking and uploading photos of themselves and those who have never heard of the selfie.
Staggeringly implausible, cartoonishly comical, Roland Emmerich's "White House Down" is refreshingly dumb.
Greta Gerwig is one of those actresses you just want to have brunch with someday. Watching her in the irresistible new film “Frances Ha” (which she co-wrote with director Noah Baumbach), you get the sense that she’s one of those down-to-earth stars, like Jennifer Lawrence and Lena Dunham, that aren’t afraid to be a bit goofy and can spin even the most mundane topic into something worth laughing about.
There's a siege mentality about Michael Bay's movies, as though viewers are the enemy holed up in a bunker and he's the guy ordering heavy-metal music around-the-clock to wear down our morale and force us to surrender.
Being a person of faith isn’t like being a football player or a plumber. In those cases, everyone knows the rules, the skills and who qualifies. Christians don’t even have universal agreement of what it means to “belong” or “get in” the club, let alone answers to life’s most pressing questions.
What should be a hilarious, long-overdue pairing of two hugely likable, superstar comedians ends up being a major disappointment with "Admission."
Danielle Block pitches hungry.
Just weeks after a 15-year-old collapsed from cardiac arrest in a Gilbert restaurant and was rushed to Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, he walked back into the hospital on a recent Friday to thank the men and women who helped save his life.
In a tree along the Salt River, a male bald eagle feeds its two chicks a fish just pulled from the water.
The genders have been reversed but the supernatural, star-crossed teen angst remains firmly intact in "Beautiful Creatures," which clearly aims to pick up where the "Twilight" franchise left off.
