14 Movies to Watch Before You Continue Going to the Movies in 2014

25 June 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Six months ago, I compiled a list of movies to watch before going to the movies in 2014. It was a homework assignment for you all to become familiar with the old movies that were remade for this year, whether direct originals or early versions of the same stories retold. That was just the first part, covering only the new releases from January to June. As promised, here is part two. Looking over the second half of the year, one thing is apparent: there are fewer remakes. There are a lot of sequels, of all sizes, and I’ve avoided including the previous installments of series like Night at the Museum, Hot Tub Time Machine, The Trip, The Hobbit, Horrible Bosses, Madagascar, Dumb and Dumber, The Hunger Games, Paranormal Activity, Dolphin Tale, Cabin Fever, The Expendables, Sin City, Planes, Planet of the Apes and The Purge. Those are all givens. I also didn’t include the TV series »

'Dolphin Tale 2' Trailer Has More Family Friendly Animal Melodrama

11 April 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If the first Dolphin Tale just wasn't adorable and cheesy enough for you, the story of the prosthetic-wearing dolphin Winter continues as he faces yet another obstacle to over come in Dolphin Tale 2. Though Winter had his life-saved by Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman), now his elderly surrogate mother Panama has passed away, leaving him alone and needing a companion in order to comply with Usda regulations. And of course, Winter's human caretakers, including do everything they can to find another dolphin to pair with Winter. However, this first teaser trailer just focuses on the saving of a new dolphin named Hope, since highlighting the death of Panama would be very depressing. Is this Winter's new friend? Here's the teaser trailer for Charles Martin Smith's Dolphin Tale 2, originally from Apple: It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, »

You Are A Fool Not To Watch “American Idol”

15 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

American Idol‘s 13th season premieres tonight with a new(-ish) cast of judges including the irascible Dolphin Tale star Harry Connick Jr., budding U-Turn actress Jennifer Lopez, and grown-up Peppermint Patty Keith Urban. Maybe they’ll do a good job! I don’t know! But I’ll be there watching because American Idol is still, despite sinking (but relatively phenomenal) ratings, the greatest singing cotillion on TV. Here are five reasons why.

5. The Hollywood rounds give you the best highs and most hilarious lows.

Twelve seasons in, the Hollywood rounds of American Idol remain the most underrated part of the show and maybe the entire reality-competition genre. The bustling energy of the second tryout, where attention-starved contestants who’ve passed the city auditions jump to Hollywood and attempt group numbers in a Fanny Brice-on-roller-skates way, is often the best indicator of how truly talented and likable the auditioning contestants are. »
