I have to admit that when Marvel Studios first announced that they were making Guardians of the Galaxy one of their next films, my befuddled reaction was, “Huh?” I don’t think this secondary comic book title was on anyone’s radar, and I would have been less surprised to hear they were going to remake Howard the Duck (which is actually not a bad idea – especially given today’s motion-capture technology and the right script.)

A betrothed lover, a heartbroken maiden and a resurrection fueled by the passion of love make up the Youth American Dance Academy’s performance of “Giselle.” One of ballet’s renowned stories, it will be showcased April 12-13 at Chandler Center for the Arts.
300: Rise of an Empire is both a prequel and a sequel to the 2007 film, 300, one of the most stylized action films ever made. The new movie has the same gritty and dark HD tonal quality of the first movie, as well as the sporadic ultra-slow-motion effects that capture the exaggerated battles and blood-spilling in extreme detail; but it’s missing some of the heart from often copied original.
