Film Review: ‘The Star’

Film Review: ‘The Star’
Though it probably could have gone without saying, “The Star” ends with a politely worded note to the effect that, while having fun and taking artist license, its creators strived to maintain the spirit and values of the greatest story ever told. Sure enough, “The Star” offers a playful retelling of Jesus’ nativity, as seen from the animals’ point of view, while keeping the necessary irreverence that entails to a benign minimum. As kid-friendly Christmas movies go, this one actually goes out of its way to remind what the holiday represents, which should please parents looking for something a little more sophisticated (but just barely) than the VeggieTales cartoons.

In the tradition of Robert Lawson’s appealing young-adult books “Ben and Me” (about founding father Franklin and his “good mouse Amos”) and “Mr. Revere and I” (in which Paul’s horse recounts his master’s famous ride), this CG co-production between Sony Pictures Animation and the [link

Video Game Review – Call of Duty: WWII

Shaun Munro reviews Call of Duty: WWII…

It’s not a stretch to say that the Call of Duty series has grown increasingly silly in recent years, gradually progressing from the oorah military fetishism of the Modern Warfare games into a sci-fi blockbuster franchise that, in the eyes of many fans, has spun wildly out of control.

It’s ironic, then, that the absurd has become the new norm for the franchise, and something as old-hat as a World War II setting feels paradoxically fresh and exciting. Simply, if you’ve been long-exhausted by the series’ recent obsession with exo-suits, wall-running and space battles, Call of Duty: WWII is a mostly refreshing tonic that lovingly recalls the more earnest tone of the earlier CoD games.

A big part of the appeal here is the focus on boots-on-the-ground gameplay, as is evident within seconds of beginning the game’s campaign, which

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Script Is Almost Finished
James Gunn took to social media to announce that he's almost finished with the first draft of the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 script. The second installment of the Guardians franchise came out right before the summer and is the third highest grossing movie of 2017, earning some big-time cash at a relatively quiet year for the box office as a whole. But as far as the McU is concerned, the attention is directed squarely on the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok (which has been compared to Guardians in terms of humor and soundtrack) and the almighty Avengers: Infinity War.

Though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was recently just released on Blu-ray/DVD, director James Gunn took to Instagram early Friday morning, bedhead and all, to announce that he's just about finished with the first draft of the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 script with 70 pages complete. Gunn had this to say.

James Gunn Teases Old-School Guardians Of The Galaxy In Vol. 3

Uniquely, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 included not one or two, but a whole five post-credits scenes. While half of them were inconsequential, comedic sequences, a couple teased important developments to come in Vol. 3.

As well as a promise that Adam Warlock would soon enter the McU, we also got a heavy hint that Sylvester Stallone’s Stakar and his team of Ravager captains would be returning for a major role next time around. Marvel comics fans will know that these characters are based on the original 1969 line-up of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

The other day, GotG director James Gunn took to Facebook to commemorate the forty-eighth anniversary of the creation of the Guardians by sharing an image of the team’s original incarnation, featuring Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Martinex and Yondu. As Gunn points, three out of the four have now appeared in the McU.

‘The Star’: Trailer Puts Animal Spin on First Christmas Story
Sony Pictures Animation, which has fallen on hard times in recent years, and failed to ignite the box office with “The Emoji Movie,” is pinning its holiday hopes on “The Star” (November 17), a retelling of the first Christmas from the point of view of the animals who become accidental heroes.

The first trailer launched Wednesday with an emphasis on physical hijinks and the diverse star power of voice actors Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Keegan-Michael Key, Kelly Clarkson, Anthony Anderson, Aidy Bryant, Ving Rhames, Gabriel Iglesias, Patricia Heaton, Kristin Chenoweth, Christopher Plummer, Tracy Morgan, Tyler Perry, and Oprah Winfrey.

The story revolves around Bo, the donkey (Yeun), Leah the horse (Clarkson), Ruth the sheep (Bryant), and Dave the dove (Key) stumbling into “The Greatest Story Ever Told” with some wisecracking camels and stable animals.

Directed by Timothy Reckart (the Oscar-nominated short, “Head Over Heels”), but outsourced to Cinesite Studios, there’s

Tom Cruise arrives back on set for Mission: Impossible 6 after injury

Tom Cruise is back at work after his injury kept him away from the Mission: Impossible 6 set.

We learned back in August that the film’s production would be shut down for nine weeks following Cruise breaking his ankle while performing a stunt where the Hollywood legend had to jump between two buildings.

Tom Cruise Is Back at Work on Mission: Impossible 6
When Mission: Impossible 6 star Tom Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt back in mid-August, there were reports that production could be shut down for upwards of four months. Either those reports weren't accurate, or the action star as mutant-like healing powers, since Tom Cruise was spotted on the Mission: Impossible 6 set, just seven weeks after the initial injury happened on the set, with new photos and videos. There were other reports that claimed the actor would need either eight or nine weeks to recover, half the time listed in the original, unconfirmed report, but the actor managed to heal up quicker than even those expectations.

When Mission: Impossible production resumed yesterday, Tom Cruise, who returns as Ethan Hunt for this sixth installment of the action-packed franchise, was certainly not taking it easy. A new report with photos and brief video show that the actor spent his

Owen Wilson, Ed Helms Search for Their Dad in ‘Father Figures’ Trailer
Warner Bros. has issued an official trailer for its comedy “Father Figures,” after recently ditching the title “Bastards.”

J.K. Simmons and former pro football player Terry Bradshaw, who is playing himself, are potential father figures to Owen Wilson and Ed Helms’ characters. Wilson and Helms play brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out to find their real father.

The brothers’ mother Helen Baxter (portrayed Glenn Close) admits at her wedding that she stretched the truth about their father dying when they were young.

“I’m not sure who your father was,” she says, “Back then, monogamy was not our top priority.”

When confronted by the brothers, Simmons’ character begins breaking glass and declaring, “There’s no way those jackasses are my kids.”

Asked about the name Helen Baxter, Bradshaw responds: “Talk about a blast from the past…she
