Your 4th of July Box-Office Weekend! 

It’s Tarzan versus the Big Friendly Giant at the box-office this weekend. Granted Alexander Skarsgard is physically fit as our King of the Jungle but he’s got a strong opponent with the triumvirate of Steven Spielberg, scriptwriter Melissa Mathison (“E.T.”), and beloved author Roald Dahl (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “James and the Giant Peach”). Which one is my pick of the week? Take a look!

But wait, there's more! Here's my take on "The Purge: Election Year" as seen on KMIR/NBC in Palm Springs. Click here to watch my "The Purge: Election Year" movie review.

"Independence Day: Resurgence" -- Cheesy, Fun But Not Enough 

The sequel to 1996’s “Independence Day” invades theatres near you! This one’s called “Resurgence” but alas, Will Smith, who became a major blockbuster star when the original came out chose to not fight aliens again. Apparently, “After Earth” is the last of his out-of-this-world films. But Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum return. This one even has a woman president (Sela Ward) and a gay couple! Times have changed. But is the sequel worth your time and money? Take a look at my “Independence Day: Resurgence” movie review.

No, "Finding Dory" Is Not As Good as "Finding Nemo!" 

Midway through "Finding Dory," as soon as Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) embarks on a mission to find her parents (Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton), I came to the realization that the $200-million sequel was carefully crafted not because there was a compelling story to be told rather due to purely economic reasons. In my humble opinion, in the Pixar universe, "Finding Dory" is a sequel on par with "Cars 2" or "Monsters University" and less with the stellar "Toy Story" sequels. Here's why:

Box-Office Update: Yup, "Finding Dory" opens with an all-time record debut for an animated flick with $136.2M. That's a lot of fish food!
