20 years ago today: ‘Jumanji’ opened in theaters
20 years ago today, “Jumanji” had its theatrical release. Though the film had lukewarm reaction from critics, it was a box office success and has remained a favorite among family adventure movies. The film is based on Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s book about a game that’s “a young people's jungle adventure especially designed for the bored and restless.” It’s at once terrifying (those monkeys!) and funny (plenty of laughs supplied by the late Robin Williams) and touching (the relief and joy in Williams’ face when he realizes this nightmare of a game is finally over). A remake is in the works and set for a Christmas 2016 release. Other notable December 15 happenings in pop culture history: • 1939: “Gone With the Wind” premiered at Loew’s Grand Theater in Atlanta, the climax of three days of festivities in the Georgia city to celebrate the film’s debut. • 1966: Walt Disney died in Burbank,

'Angels Sing' review: Harry Connick Jr., Connie Britton can't save off-key holiday musical

  • Pop2it
An all-star cast of singers become actors for "Angels Sing," a wan little holiday film that manages to show a little heart once it finally gets going.

Harry Connick Jr. stars as an Austin, Texas, history professor who doesn't put much stock in Christmas. Michael is always angling to dodge doing both Thanksgiving and Christmas with his parents (Kris Kristofferson, Fionnula Flanagan) for reasons he's reluctant to tell his granny-loving son (Chandler Canterbury). His wife (Connie Britton) is understanding. 

Eventually, the kid finds out -- dad lost a brother over the holidays, years ago. Kind of ruined the day for him.

But Michael's ongoing house-hunting throws him in the path of this chuckling old man (Willie Nelson) with a McMansion for sale.

"How much, Mr. ... uuhhhh?"

"Call me 'Nick.'" 

They seal the deal and Michael finds himself with the showplace of Live Oak Lane, one of those Christmas-crazed corners

Standing Up Movie Review 2
Title: Standing Up Director: DJ Caruso Starring: Chandler Canterbury, Annalise Basso, Radha Mitchell, Val Kilmer A nicely captured if fairly straightforward coming-of-age film about transcending adolescent summer camp bullying, the family-friendly “Standing Up” represents a rather curious filmography entry for director DJ Caruso, whose other movies (among them “Disturbia,” “Eagle Eye” and “I Am Number Four”) have almost all all showed a penchant for slick, pop-minded entertainment. Vacuumed free of darkened peril or any of the idiosyncratic pop of Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom,” which charts a somewhat broadly similar story of two pre-teens on the lam, this slight but well intentioned effort seems a better fit for small screen viewing.

Standing Up Review

A pair of runaway teens deliver romance and thrills in sweet family adventure Standing Up Coming-of-age dramas are fast becoming a rare movie genre unless the kids have superhero capes or include girls named Katniss Everdeen or Bella Swan. Standing Up, writer/director D.J. Caruso’s warm-hearted and witty adaptation of Brock Cole’s 1987 teen novel The Goats, delivers plenty of heroism and teen-friendly excitement, all grounded by courage, resourcefulness and collaboration instead of any unearthly powers. Howie (Chandler Canterbury) is an eleven-year-old boy who runs away from bullies at his summer camp with Grace (Annalise Basso), a twelve-year-old girl and fellow teen outcast. Embarrassed by a cruel prank that leaves them alone on an island lake, Howie and Grace set off on a three-day journey to get away from the bullies and meet up with Grace’s mother (Radha Mitchell).

DVD Review: 'The Host'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ Twilight Saga scribe Stephenie Meyer saw another of her teen-friendly novels adapted for the big screen this year with the release of The Host (2013). Helmed by Andrew Niccol - no stranger to glossy sci-fi following Gattaca and In Time - the film features yet another conflicted female protagonist, unable to decide which one of two hunky heartthrobs she prefers kissing. Importantly, this particular love triangle is played out against the aftermath of an alien invasion, with humanity now host to phosphorous, otherworldly parasites. Despite this promising premise, however, soppy romanticism does eventually take centre stage.

One of only a handful of scattered rebels is Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), on the run from the invading race's agents with her younger brother Jamie (Chandler Canterbury). Held captive after a near-fatal fall, Melanie is assimilated by the planet's new dominant species before being renamed 'Wanderer' ('Wanda') by arresting officer-turned-interrogator The Seeker (Diane Kruger

The Host - Blu-ray Review

Invasion of the Body Snatchers mixed with teen love, The Host has the potential to be a good movie and a solid addition to the sci-fi genre, but the film gets weighed down by a middle that kills the pace and a story that doesn’t seem to go anywhere. Based on the novel from Twilight's Stephenie Meyer (who also produced the film), The Host was written and directed by Andrew Niccol (1997's Gattaca) and stars Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons, Frances Fisher, Chandler Canterbury, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, Boyd Holbrook, Scott Lawrence, and Emily Browning. The film introduces the plot quickly with a voice-over narration that explains the Earth is now nearly perfect. There are no more wars.

DVD Review: The Host (2013)

  • Cinelinx
I'm one of the only males on the planet Earth who actually admit to liking the Twilight movies and books. That being said, I have to say I was excited when I heard sci-fi Director Andrew Niccol was adapting Stephenie Meyer's other novel, The Host, for the big screen. Gattaca was widely acclaimed and even In Time received mixed reviews. I was hoping Niccol would at least find a happy medium in between those two and give author Meyer's fans something to be proud of. Unfortunately, I didn't get what I wanted upon viewing the movie.

Aliens have invaded Earth and taken over the bodies of humans as hosts. The process erases the memories of most of the victims. However, a select few have been found to be strong-willed and fight for their individuality and humanity. Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan) is such a person. Her drive to save her

Blu-ray Review: ‘Twilight’ Wannabe ‘The Host’ Hits New Ya Low

Chicago – Perhaps it’s something that every generation thinks but I really feel like the teens of this generation who get sucked into absolute nonsense like the truly horrendous “The Host,” just released on Blu-ray and DVD, are being intellectually damaged. They deserve better than this nonsense, arguably the worst movie of the year. And I’ve seen “Movie 43.”

Rating: 0.0/5.0

The latest “Twilight” wannabe from the same author, Stephenie Meyer, tries to put a sci-fi spin on young, sullen, beautiful people in love but ends up making no sense and providing absolutely nothing with which to relate. Most of the film consists of poor Saoirse Ronan (so great in films like “Hanna” and “Atonement” but stuck in some bad films lately) actually having a conversation with the voice in her head. Ronan kinda plays two people, one of the last human freedom fighters against an “Invasion of the Body Snatchers
