An action packed adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat. The American and British Arthur and the Invisibles might have been choppy due to trying to kiddify it but this one is smooth as silk and given to us just the way it was meant to be. Sure there are parallels with other films but aren’t most children’s stories and films? It is a child’s story with lots of grownup actions for the rest of us that watch with our children. Some parts are blatantly stolen from other films and I doubt the original producers, directors and owners mind. I am sure they got as much of a kick out of it as I am sure that you will. This film is the perfect conclusion to the trilogy and I hope that they come back to revisit it some time with even more adventures for us.

Sarah Michelle Gellar plays a young woman, Amanda Shelton, that is running a restaurant in downtown Manhattan called The Southern Cross. The film starts with her looking in the local farmers market for produce and products that she is going to use in the restaurant that day. While there she runs into a rather strange merchant with a bushel of crabs as well as the promoter for a new restaurant Johnathan’s, Tom Bartlett played by Sean Patrick Flanery. While all of this sounds rather dry it is important for you to know how all the pieces start to fall in place in this delicious and delectably succulent romantic comedy with a twist of magic thrown in for good measure.

Multiplex is an online comic about a fictitious movie theater Multiplex 10 Cinemas located in a fictional suburb of Chicago. The comic is full of drama, so way full of drama with a cast of characters that will keep you coming back for more.
The following is taken directly from their information page and instead of trying to paraphase it I figured I would just give it to you as is since it is written so well anyway. “Multiplex is a twice-weekly online comic about the movie-loving and customer-weary staff of your local movie theater. It is written and illustrated by Gordon McAlpin. It has been running continuously since July, 2006, and serves over 55,000 unique visitors per month (to the tune of 225,000 pageviews per month).” No matter what standard you set for comics online this one is good by any of those standards. I don’t care what anyone might say otherwise. Read more...(366 words, 5 images, estimated 1:28 mins reading time)
Jackie Chan starred in the Walt Disney classic Around The World In 80 Days. This is by far one of the best Around The World In 80 Days films to date. At least that is what I feel. It gives so much more to the characters and they are not dry or dull like in previous incarnations of films with the same name. If Jules Verne saw this version I think that he would instantly fall in love with it. This one is definitely a family classic that will be enjoyed by generations to come.
With that said, I would have to rate Arnold Schwarzenegger’s portrayal of Prince Hapi as a scene that would have been better off left on the cutting room floor. The guy is a great actor in his own right, but as this one character it just didn’t work right. It seemed forced and thrown in at the last minute to boost ratings or something. Remember, that is my opinion and may not be what actually happened, it just feels that way. Read more...(578 words, 1 image, estimated 2:19 mins reading time)
