Cozi Zuehlsdorff’s New Song for “Dolphin Tale 2″ — “Brave Souls”

posted by Nell Minow

I’m really looking forward to “Dolphin Tale 2,” even more so after seeing this music video by Cozi Zuehlsdorff, the young actress who reprises her role as Hazel from the original film. Cozi’s song, which she wrote and performs herself, is called “Brave Souls” and in this video she explains how the “Dolphin Tale” movies and their stars, the dolphins Winter and Hope, inspired the lyrics.

Jane Lynch, Danny Glover, Brooke Shields, Bailee Madison, and Drake Bell provide the voices for “Adventure Planet,” an animated adventure for the whole family out today on DVD.  Norva and Jorpe are siblings who live in the tropical forests of Northern Thailand, each of them endowed with unique gifts: Norva is an accomplished martial artist and an expert on local plants, while Jorpe has the ability to communicate with animals and plants. When excessive global warming creates fearsome “fire beasts” who begin to wreak havoc on the planet, world leaders develop a new solution called the “Cool Bomb” to combat the monsters. The problem is that the “Cool Bomb” will only make the crisis worse — and only Norva, Jorpe, and their friend Sam, the son of the President of Capital State, know the truth. As time begins to run out, the three friends must find a way to stop the “Cool Bomb” and prove that there is another way to save the planet.  Originally titled “Echo Planet,” this Thai film was renamed and redubbed for its US release.

A few concluding thoughts on the summer movies of 2014: A good summer for food movies: "The Chef," "The 100-Foot Journey," and "The Trip to Italy" had some big-time actors but the real stars were the luscious meals. A bad summer for comedies: "22 Jump Street" was uneven, but at least it had so

"Let's Be Cops" Could Have Been Not Terrible
"Let's Be Cops" is a dumb movie that wants to be like "Lethal Weapon" or "The Other Guys," a comedy action film about buddies with badges. It's moderate box office returns are possibly in part because the unrest in Ferguson and news stories about police brutality made the timing bad for a cop comed
