"Mr. Peabody & Sherman," and "300: Rise of An Empire" Movie Review 


Two big films this weekend, we have the animated film "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" and the action-adventure sequel "300: Rise of An Empire."

In "Mr. Peabody & Sherman," it feels like the 1950s all over again! The companion piece of "The Rocky Bullwinkle Show" is now a big-screen event. From the creators of "The Croods" and "How to Train Your Dragon," and director of "The Lion King," the time-travelling adventures of an advanced canine, Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell), and his adopted son, Sherman (voiced by Max Charles), are front and center in this animated film.

And, you may miss Gerard Butler in the sequel "300: Rise of an Empire," but is it enough for you to not see the sequel? Have no fear, we have a new hero in Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) who leads the charge against the invading Persian navy. But first, he must deal with the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemisia (Eva Green), the vengeful commander of the fleet. Original director Zack Synder takes a backseat as co-writer and producer and gave the helm to Noam Murro.

So which one is my pick of the week? Take a look:
