Guardians of the Galaxy

A-
Lowest Recommended Age:Middle School
MPAA Rating:Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for some language
Movie Release Date:August 1, 2014
DVD Release Date:December 8, 2014

One of the most anticipated releases of the year is Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” starring Chris Pratt (“The LEGO Movie”), Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Lee Pace.  The trailer looks amazing. I love the use of the […]

Lowest Recommended Age:Middle School
MPAA Rating:Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and mayhem throughout, some sexuality, and language
Movie Release Date:May 24, 2013
DVD Release Date:December 10, 2013

"Moonquake Lake" has a lot of star power behind it -- "LEGO Movie" directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord and stars Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Rihanna. And it looks....intriguing, some sort of "Twilight"-style supernatural teen romance. It just isn't real. "Moonquake Lake" is a movie with

Black Reel Awards Nominations 2014
One of the great pleasures of this time of year is voting for so many of my favorite filmmakers as a part of the Black Reel Awards. Thanks, as ever, to Tim Gordon for allowing me to participate. I think it is fair to say we had more and better choices this year than we ever have before. Here are

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Visually stunning, capably presented, and utterly unnecessary, this final in the six-movie Tolkien cycle is just for the fans.  I think even Tolkien himself would cry "no mas" at this p
