Amazon vs. Netflix: An Itemized Guide to What You Should Be Streaming This Year

4 April 2017 1:26 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You time is valuable, and so are both services for different reasons.War Machine (Netflix)

Although there may be a competition going on between Amazon and Netflix for subscribers, the truth is that both company’s streaming services are essential for anyone who watches a lot of movies and TV and who wants to be part of the pop culture conversations as they happen.

There’s no denying that Amazon Prime is worth the $99/year, which not only gives you access to many movies but also a good amount of music streaming and digital media access, plus faster shipping for when you actually want some sort of physical product (you can also just get video content for $8.99/month, which oddly means paying more for less).

And Netflix is still a must-have for both its exclusive and nonexclusive content, though depending on one’s usage could be best for sporadic membership rather than continued subscription — now at $120/year »

Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang review – high-stakes fun for real kids

2 April 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Mischievous twins on a summer-school mystery in this Spanish-language children’s adventure

This boisterous Spanish romp is a reminder of just how few children’s movies feature actual kids having adventures, rather than animated creatures pinging around virtual worlds. Zip and Zap, a pair of troublesome twins, are sent to a strict summer school as a punishment. They form the Marble Gang – a covert organisation dedicated to night-time pranks and resistance against the school’s strict “no-fun” policy. But the building has a secret, and they find themselves in a high-stakes race against the school principal and his sidekick. Inventive Spy Kids-style design and a rattling pace make this a great option for preteens confident enough to tackle subtitles.

Bring out your inner child with this roundup of animation goodies:   Robert Rodriguez to Direct Uglydolls Making a return to kid-friendly fare, Spy Kids director Robert Rodriguez is going to turn the Uglydoll toys into an animated feature, according to Deadline. Plans have been in the works for years to bring the plush monsters to the big screen for their own movie, though they're no strangers to the cinema. Since their launch in 2001, Uglydoll toys have appeared as props in Zathura, Enchanted, The Smurfs and Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, some of them even coming to life in the last of them. This will still be Stx Entertainment's first foray into family films and is due in theaters on May 10, 2019.     Eddie Murphy Returns to...

Robert Rodriguez To Direct Animated Feature Ugly Dolls

28 March 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Robert Rodriguez has an intriguingly split career. On one hand, he’s notorious for his balls-to-the-wall grindhouse capers like Desperado, Sin City and Machete. On the other, he’s made bank with the Spy Kids trilogy, popular children’s films released in the early 2000s. Lately, he’s been tending towards the more bloody end of the spectrum, but perhaps he’s swinging back towards family friendly, as it’s just been announced that he’s to direct Ugly Dolls.

Ugly Dolls (or Uglydolls) are cute little stuffed toys who’ve snowballed in popularity since their introduction in 2001, with Babo, Cinko, Ice Bat and the rest making appearances in the backgrounds of Enchanted, The It Crowd and Zathura – not to mention famously being spotted fixed to Sasha Obama’s backpack on her first day of school in 2009. They come from the ‘uglyverse’ where the ethos is that ‘ugly’ is something »

Newswire: Robert Rodriguez to direct movie based on Uglydoll toys

28 March 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Just a few days after signing on to direct a remake of John Carpenter’s Escape From New York, Robert Rodriguez has also decided to direct an animated movie based on the Uglydoll line of children’s toys. That’s according to Variety, which says the movie will be Rodriguez’s first animated project and that it even has a release date already penciled in for May 10, 2019. We don’t have any details about the film other than that, but it will presumably be a weird and stylish kids’ movie like Rodriguez’s Spy Kids series, but with the added benefit of being based on a pre-existing toy (just like Trolls and The Lego Movie).

As for the Uglydoll toys themselves, they’re primarily plush monsters with pointy teeth and big, cartoony eyes. The idea is that they look kind of creepy, which helps teach kids to appreciate ...

Robert Rodriguez To Direct Animated ‘Ugly Dolls’

28 March 2017 12:28 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As per usual, Robert Rodriguez is not a man who can be easily pigeonholed. A few years have passed since last feature, the extremely disappointing “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” but he’s back in the feature-film business in a big way after detours into television with the interview series “The Director’s Chair” and “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.” He’s already in post-production on the big-budget, James Cameron-produced “Alita: Battle Angel,” and just last week we learned he signed up to direct the remake of John Carpenter‘s “Escape From New York.” However, kids’ fare has always been part of Rodriguez’s oeuvre (see his “Spy Kids” series), and he’s once again diving into making a movie for children.
