"Mom, Dad! The baby can talk!" DreamWorks Animation has released a second full-length trailer for their next animated comedy, titled The Boss Baby, made by the same director as the Madagascar series and Mastermind. The first trailer introduced us to the "Boss Baby", an adorable baby voiced by Alec Baldwin who carries a briefcase and harbors a malicious desire to put an end to ever-so-cute Puppy Co. Other voices in this are Miles Bahski, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Tobey Maguire, and Steve Buscemi. This looks fun, and they're obviously selling the sibling rivalry and cuteness above all else, I just hope there's something more to this. Maybe the story of them becoming friends is the core emotion. Check it out below. Here's the second official trailer for DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby, direct from YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer for The Boss Baby here, to »

Every December it bears repeating: Anyone who thinks this was a bad year for movies simply hasn’t seen enough. In an age of binge-viewing, a preponderance of must-see premium cable shows and, hell, even smartphone apps that command far more attention most feature-length achievements, the true range of quality cinema is often obscured by the noise of an ever-cluttered media landscape. To really assess the state of modern movies, one look beyond the obvious. Sure, it was a weak year for movies that stand out mainly due to star power and sizable marketing budgets, but those options represent only a small fraction of the marketplace.
The film festival circuit provides an ideal alternative to conventional channels for discovering movies worth talking about all year long — and, if they’re lucky enough to land distribution, they quality for year-end celebration on lists like this one. This year, every single finalist »

New York Comic Con has once again rushed by in a giant, fun, crazy blur, and although I didn’t get to nearly all the things I was hoping to, I did have a rockin’ time and see some really cool things I can share.
The first of these were a few great panels I landed seats for, including, as is my tradition, the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel. If you don’t know I love the current Tmnt, then what are you, new here? But seriously, I love it. And each panel I have gone to brings something new and different.
This panel (with Andrea Romano (voice director), Eric Bauza (Tiger Claw), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Shredder), Greg Cipes (Mikey), Rob Paulsen (Donnie), and Ciro Nieli (Executive Producer)) was particularly fun, because one of the things they did was a live read of episode #420, “The Super Shredder,” which »

"Fine, I can talk. Now let's see if you can listen." DreamWorks Animation has released the first teaser trailer for their next new comedy movie, titled The Boss Baby, from the director of the Madagascar series and Mastermind. Alec Baldwin voices the adorable little baby, seriously called just "Baby" in the film, who is a suit-wearing briefcase-carrying kid that teams up with his seven-year old brother to stop the dastardly plot of the CEO of Puppy Co. Other voices include Miles Bahski, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Tobey Maguire, and Steve Buscemi. This teaser makes it look like there is quite a bit of tension between the baby and his brother, but it seems like they'll probably end up friends by the end. What do you make of this? Here's the first official trailer for DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby, direct from YouTube: He wears a suit, speaks with the »

Do not read on unless you’ve seen “Twenty-Two,” Wednesday’s episode of Fxx’s “You’re the Worst.” And if you haven’t the episode (or the show), rectify that situation as soon as you can.
I laughed out loud several times during “Twenty-Two,” which is one of many compliments this spectacular episode deserves. “You’re the Worst,” which was renewed today, never tires of showcasing the inherent absurdity of life, and it has characters that are custom-made to shine a spotlight on the idiotic and sympathetic things friends are capable of, as well as the impulsive and contradictory life choices of alleged adults. On this show, those choices range from admirable to amusingly deranged, and yet tonally, “You’re the Worst” is never confused about what it is or what it’s going for. It’s one of TV’s most reliable pleasures — but part of its appeal is its willingness to take chances, as »

An all-out bird/pig war, a problem sorority, and the perfect old-school buddy film are headed to theatres this weekend! The Angry Birds Movie
You’ve played the app, and chances are, you've probably downloaded one of the sequels too (personally, I’m a fan of the Star Wars version). Now those fearless little flyers are coming to life on the big screen in The Angry Birds Movie! Not only do we finally get a little background story as to why these poor little birds are so angry, they now have voices! Not just grunts and screams! Real voices! Jason Sudeikis plays the permanently angry “Red,” Maya Rudolph steps in as anger management coach “Matilda,” and Josh Gad (you know him as Olaf in Frozen) gets all animated again as the hyperactive “Chuck.” Other voices to note: Blake Shelton plays a pig named Earl, Sean Penn lends his voice to the oversized “Terence, »
