If you are looking for a movie to take your kids to this weekend, Megamind is a smart choice. If, however, you were hoping to be entertained too, chances are you are going to be disappointed.
For the most part, Megamind is what you've come to expect from a Dreamworks animated film. It has all the typical bells and whistles, including pop culture references (including nods to President Obama's "Hope" poster, Donkey Kong and Marlon Brando's performance as Jor-El in the 1978 Superman film), well-known pop songs (including "Bad to the Bone," "A Little Less Conversation" and "Highway to Hell") and big name celebrities providing the voices. What the film lacks, however, is originality and humor.

Who’S It For? The kids will like it because they will like anything. Actually, that could be true for the entire audience for this film, it’s basic entertainment. It’s a similar plot as Despicable Me, but a little bit better.
Expectations: I really had none for this animated flick. I like superheroes, but for some reason this one wasn’t getting me too excited.

Photo: DreamWorks Animation Megamind would be a terrific case study to determine just how many films it either knowingly, or unknowingly, cribs from to make up its duration. Of course, there's very few films out there now that are truly original these days, but in the case of Megamind it has to deal with the fact it's no different than films that were released even this year.
The plot is extraordinarily similar to Despicable Me and the music ranging from AC/DC's "Highway To Hell" to Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train" not only reeks of cliched trailer music, but it could also serve as the soundtrack for Iron Man 2. But those are just a few nitpicks, we'll get to the rest shortly. Otherwise, there are a few mildly comedic moments in this rather stale production, »

In a world where television is devoted to every shade of crime fighter – cops, cops in different cities, private detectives, scientists, and partners who are psychics, novelists, bone people, professors, and even multi-dimensional travelers – ‘Glee’ is an anomaly. A big anomaly. It’s after-school special meets Alexander Payne’s ‘Election,’ set to tunes ranging from Journey to Lady Gaga.
And now the merry band of misfits have hit Blu-ray in a not perfect, but very solid production.
As the story goes, Mr.Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) wants to start a glee club to re-live his youth — an idealistic group where misfits can find their voices and strut their stuff alongside the teacher whose best days lay in his singing and dancing past. After a variety of struggles, a core group forms – the keener superstar Rachel (Lea Michele), the super-jock dufus Finn (Cory Monteith), the too-stylish-for-his-own-good gay kid Kurt (Chris Colfer »

Mumbai, Aug 17 – John Abraham is upbeat about his forthcoming film “Jhoota Hi Sahi” and he’ll be promoting it through popular online reality show “MTV Roadies Battleground 3-Highway To Hell”, which even has a helpline named after the actor’s character in the movie.
Comparing the film and “Roadies”, John said: “It’s a very different role of a simple guy, just like the contestants of ‘Roadies’. It’s a great film and I am very proud to say that the entire cast and crew has done a fantabulous job.”

From the producers of Wild Hogs and Old Dogs comes Brad Garrett, William H. Macy, John Travolta and Cuba Gooding, Jr. as the War Pigs, a suburban father foursome out to retrieve their kidnapped children from North Korea's ruthless leader Kim Jong-Il.
Sound too bad to be true? You're right. War Pigs is someone's idea of a spoof joke with a generous portion of effort behind it. There's a full mock-promotional website set up with a trailer, cast bios and more set to AC/DC's Highway to Hell.
Intrigued? Check out the trailer at www.warpigsmovie.com and join me in wondering how horrifically hilarious this movie would actually be if someone ponied up the cash to make it. »

“That’s the Tony Stark version of doing things.”

The Pentagon announced the number of discharges under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell for 2009 was 443 lives changed forever. Of course, that’s probably low, since the Pentagon doesn’t count Guard or Reserve discharges in that number. The policy has now cost 13,425 service members their livelihood.

Before we ever get into last night's Glee music, it's worth repeating:
If you haven't yet watched Jane Lynch's incredible cover of "Vogue," or feel an understandable urge to do so again, stop whatever you're doing and take this four-minute break. It's well worth it.
That vido aired after "Hell-o" concluded, of course, but there were plenty of performances to appreciate during the actual episode itself, too.
For example: even if you don't trust Jesse St. James, it's hard not to appreciate his duet with Rachel, the audio of which is below:
Here's a look at all the singles heard on last night's episode, along with an easy, one-click way of purchasing the Glee cast version of them off iTunes:

Glee is back! Let the celebration begins! Or at least break out the alcohol for our beloved shot game. You remember that, don't you? I mean, I know it's been a while but we take a shot every time someone does something out of character, there's a plot hole big enough to sail the Lusitania through, or something happens that would never, ever happen in real life. So ... we take a shot about every 4.5 seconds, with breaks for commercials and rehab treatment.
I have to admit, I was a little disappointed by the first episode back from hiatus. Or whatever they called that four month break since our last new offering. The official title of this episode was "Hell-o" but it really should have been: "Same song, second verse, same as the first." It was literally the same storylines as the first half of the season. Glee Club is still »
Greetings! Howdy! Or as Alexander Graham Bell would say, “Ahoy, ahoy!”
Glee saluted us with a welcome-back party full of melodrama.
Fresh off their win from Sectionals, the Glee Club members milk their win by strutting like Bmoc’s, thinking they’ve got it made in high school. Fame’s just around the corner, yeah, but they encounter thrown slushies instead.
Coach Sue comes back, vengeful as ever. Her ingenious return comes via putting a roofie in the principal’s drink at dinner, and upon waking up, taking a picture of the two of them in bed. He, without clothes. She, still in her track suits. We find Finn, now playing basketball, ambiguous as ever as to his intentions of what to do with Rachel. He can’t keep his eyes off his ex, preggy Quinn. He’s not exactly thrilled with Rachel’s domineering view of their relationship, »

Only a short Megamind teaser trailer for you below. I’m sure Will Ferrell will peak your interest as he lends his voice to devilish supervillian, Megamind, who reluctantly becomes the city’s hero.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians sounds like an Otis Redding cover band. It is, instead, an unofficial cover of the Harry Potter franchise. “The Lightning Thief,’’ the first film in what its makers at 20th Century Fox almost certainly hope will become a series, features a New York teenager named Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) who’s introduced to a world of magic, demons, and special effects. Very little of it is as persuasive or enveloping as its beloved English counterpart. But it works very hard to distract 11-year-olds from thinking about the November arrival of “The Deathly Hallows.’’
Based on the popular teen novels written by Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is hoping to catch on like Harry Potter at the theaters, so much so the director of the first two Potter features, Chris Columbus, duped Fox into hiring him for the gig. However, Fox must »
