Will "Despicable Me 2" Triumph Over "The Lone Ranger?" See My Pick of the Week! 


It's one of the biggest movie weekends of the year, the 4th of July holiday! And we have two big films to choose from -- “Despicable Me 2” the sequel to the 2010 box-office hit, and “The Lone Ranger,” the big screen adaptation of the beloved TV series.

In “Despicable Me 2,” Steve Carrell returns to voice Gru, the once-powerful super villain who is now a changed man. But when a new villain, El Macho, arrives on the scene, the Anti-Villain League must call Gru for help. Joining the cast is Kristen Wiig as an Anti-Villain League agent named Lucy Wilde.

In “The Lone Ranger,” Johnny Depp wears a dead bird for a hair piece as Tonto, a Native American warrior and the film’s narrator. He’s telling the story of John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law who became the masked avenger known as the Lone Ranger. From the creators of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise (producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Gore Verbinski), “The Lone Ranger” is PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence.

So which one is my pick of the week? Here are my movie reviews of "Despicable Me 2" and "The Lone Ranger":

Animated Film Trailer Makes Gay History 


A family is a family, that's the strong message featured in the new teaser trailer for "The Boxtrolls" from Laika (see trailer below). The company who brought us "Coraline" and the Oscar-nominated "Paranorman" is pushing boundaries once again by featuring two dads! Yes! And yay!

The narrator on the trailer says "Sometimes there is a mother, sometimes there is a father, sometimes there are two fathers," as we see a baby on a street with different parental figures go in and out mirroring the words.

Travis Knight, the president and CEO of Laika told THR via the Huffington Post that, "We’re not in any way trying to be activists. We’re just trying to be who we are."

Good for them!

Based on the novel "Here Be Monsters," Focus Features is releasing "The Boxtrolls" on Sept. 26th, 2014.

Teaser trailer below, and here's a short synopsis of the film:

Synopsis

The new 3D stop-motion and CG hybrid animated feature is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class, and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kindhearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and adventurous rich girl Winnie (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese.

Sandra Bullock Movie to Kick Off Oscar Season 


I can't believe that the Oscar season is almost here.

Last year, at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, "The Master" triumphed winning the Silver Lion (Best Director for Paul Thomas Anderson) and Best Actor (shared by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix) awards. The movie went on to receive Oscar nominations for acting for Hoffman (Best Actor), Phoenix (Best Supporting Actor), and Amy Adams (Best Supporting Actress).

This year, "Gravity" starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney will kick off the 2013 Venice Film Festival on August 28th. We'll find out if "Gravity" will have the same Oscar magic as "The Master" but it's from writer/director Alfonso Cuaron, the brilliant helmer of fantastic films such as "Children of Men" and "Y Tu Mamá También." So it may have a chance.

"Gravity" tells the story of two astronauts drifting in orbit after an accident. Yup, just two people in space. Intriguing!

Warner Bros. is unleashing "Gravity" on Oct. 4.
