Jennifer Garner held hands with her daughter Seraphina after they picked up breakfast at the Brentwood Country Mart in La this morning. The girls had some mother-daughter time while Sera's older sister, Violet, was off at school and her little brother, Samuel, was elsewhere. One thing that brings the Garner kids together with their parents, though, is reading. Jennifer recently opened up to People magazine about what her little ones like to read. She said, "We love A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. My daughter Violet is so into the series, she talks about the Baudelaire kids like they are part of our family. It's a blast."

With the arrival of Spring Breakers imminent, Nick looks at seven former child stars who've gone on to enjoy film careers as grown-ups...
Making a name for yourself while young is definitely an appealing way to get into the acting business, for pushy parents and wannabe stars alike. The pros are obvious – fame and fortune at a young age, established links with the industry, and an early chance to make your mark. But for many, being a child star is the only thing they know, and once adulthood comes around, there goes the career.
Options can become limited once you’ve gone past your cute sell by date (just ask Macaulay Culkin), so is it any wonder that Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson have decided to explode their child star image by starring in boundary pushing and very adult Spring Breakers? »
The best part of Oz the Great and Powerful is undoubtedly the opening title sequence and Disney has decided instead of having you pay to see it in theaters they will just offer it to you for free online. Nice of them right? Admittedly, if 3D does add any kind of value to the theatrical experience it is with a sequence such as this, but it's hardly reason enough to pay the inflated ticket price when you can sit back and watch it right now in the comfort of your own surroundings. I've also included the end credit sequence from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, which is just as great, but also features the fantastic score from Thomas Newman as a little bonus. Both are animated in a similar "paper" puppet style and show a terrific amount of imagination. I hope you enjoy. »

You're going to hear about how great Oz the Great and Powerful is in terms of visuals. The 100% CGI china doll character is, admittedly, phenomenal, but for the most part we are teleported into a CG wonderland that's lovely to look at, but lacking in wonder. You don't look at the Oz developed by the effects wizards employed by director Sam Raimi and awe at its majesty as much as you see it for all its artificiality and the 3-D does little to enhance this non-reality accompanied by a story that quickly progresses into boredom. The only moment worthy of being singled out comes in the first few minutes. In fact, the moment I'm referring to is the first few minutes. The opening credit sequence is a fully animated, "paper" puppet sequence that rivals the lovely animated sequence during the closing credits of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events »

Let us pause a moment to reflect on the fallen… Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004), Eragon (2006), The Golden Compass (2007), The Seeker: The Dark is Rising (2007), City of Ember (2008), The Spiderwick Chronicles (2008), Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant (2009), I Am Number Four (2011) These are all movies adapted from the first books of best-selling, young adult fiction series, and while each of them had hopes of spawning cinematic franchises along the lines of Harry Potter and Twilight… all of them failed. The high rate of disappointment hasn’t quenched Hollywood’s thirst though, and many, many more Ya adventures are hitting screens in the next few years. The newest one, and happily, one of the best in some time, is the supernatural themed Beautiful Creatures. The film follows the destined but doomed romance between a mortal teen yearning to escape his backwater hometown and a girl whose upcoming sixteenth birthday will see her claimed by »
