‘Smallfoot’ Film Review: Fun Ideas Get Buried Under Avalanche of Mediocrity

‘Smallfoot’ Film Review: Fun Ideas Get Buried Under Avalanche of Mediocrity
Producers John Requa and Glenn Ficarra have generally kept a wide berth between their kid-friendly projects and their more adult material. The best parts of “Smallfoot” see them finding a middle ground, espousing plot points and messaging that you don’t usually find in family fare.

Lurking within this animated tale of yetis and humans are such forward-thinking notions as, “Question everything, including religion,” “Governments use public safety as an excuse for misleading the populace when they really just want to control people,” and “Tribalism benefits people in power more than the communities they claim to want to protect.”

Heady stuff for a mainstream cartoon, but unfortunately “Smallfoot” can’t bear the weight of its big ideas, saddled as it is with fairly mediocre animation, mostly forgettable songs and a resolutely by-the-numbers screenplay by director Karey Kirkpatrick (“Over the Hedge”) and Clare Sera, adapting Sergio Pablos’ book “Yeti Tracks.”

Can you believe we are finally getting good video game films? Between Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Tomb Raider, and to some extend Ready Player One, it’s been a great year for films that don’t necessarily follow a video game’s story but the feel you get from playing them. Rampage, starring Dwayne “The man who can make any franchise better” Johnson is based on a 32-year-old arcade game that had players take control of a King Kong-knockoff,

Movies New to Netflix in April: ‘Seven,’ ‘The Iron Giant,’ ‘Scarface’ and More

April showers might bring May flowers, but what to do during the rainy season? Why, modern movie-lover does when the weather outside is frightful, curl up with some Netflix. (Maybe get some chill in there, if you’re lucky). While not the most romantic of movies, classic crime lovers can enjoy Brian De Palma’s “Scarface,” which lands on the platform next month. After you get your fix of an infinitely quotable and smoldering Al Pacino, you can jump ahead to the equally as disturbing David Fincher classic, “Seven.”

A few tear-jerking Oscar winners also head to Netflix in April, including the Nicole Kidman, Renée Zellweger-starring “Cold Mountain,” and Roberto Benigni’s WWII drama “Life Is Beautiful.” For lighter fare, check out “The Iron Giant,” or both live-action “The Flinstones” movies (for my Rosie O’Donnell die-hards).

Hopefully, that’s enough to keep you busy until May. Check out

Japanese Company Makes Samurai Armor for Cats and Dogs

I understand that this is primarily a movie, TV, and entertainment site so the idea of pets being on here doesn’t 100% jive with the rest of our material. However, if you don’t think that eventually we’ll be seeing some kind of movie involving ninja cats or dogs then you obviously don’t go on the internet very often. And to get things rolling, a Japanese company has decided to outfit cats and dogs with none other than Samurai armor. Samurai Age offers standardized armor sized for cats and small dogs, but they also make custom designs that accommodate your little

Watch: These Dogs and Cats Found Your Fidget Spinner (And You Might Not Get It Back)
Kids can’t get their paws on these things fast enough — and now neither can pets!

Cats and dogs everywhere have gone all in on the craze that has stores across the country selling out of the spinning toys.

Most felines are fidgeting just as you might expect, with a curiosity that’s usually reserved for string or catnip. With the exception of one kitty below, who found the spinner to be the precursor to a nap.

Dogs have also found a friend in the fidget — with one pup watching the thing spin on his nose (clearly, he knows its calming power).

Shark Tank Company Profile: Apollo Peak is a Wine Brand for Cats and Dogs

If there’s one thing that Shark Tank has proven, it’s that you’ll never be able to tell if a product is going to get invested in or completely made fun of. When I first took a look at Apollo Peak my initial impression is that this idea is going to get thrown out the window. But after taking a closer look at what Brandon Zavala is doing, I’ve downgraded my recommendation to “I have no idea what’s going to happen.” So what is Apollo Peak? According to sources on the show: Zavala started the business in 2015 with the goal

‘Dr Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet’ Rescues 4 Puppies From Being Shot (Exclusive Video)

These four puppies were going to get shot — yes, shot — until National Mill Dog Rescue and Dr. Jeff Young stepped in. The do-gooders team up to save the doggies on tomorrow night’s episode of Animal Planet’s “Dr Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet” — but TheWrap has got your exclusive first look at the canine rescue mission. Upon examination, these particular puppy mill pooches were in surprisingly-good shape. Once spayed and/or neutered, they should be adopted pretty quickly. And that’s a fate far-better than being Old Yeller’d out back. Also Read: Cats and Dogs: Puppy Bowl Rolls

Ratings: 400th ‘Law & Order: Svu’ Episode Seizes Best Numbers Since September
NBC captured some solid Nielsen numbers with its 400th episode of “Law & Order: Svu” last night — but that doesn’t mean it won the night. In a tie with Fox, Bob Greenblatt’s broadcast network finished runner-up to ABC in the key 18-49 demographic. NBC was second to CBS among overall audience. ABC actually finished fourth in eyeballs, falling behind Fox by an average of just 3,000 total viewers across primetime. It’s important to remember that ABC, CBS and NBC nationally program three hours per weeknight, while Fox and CW just do two. Also Read: Cats and Dogs: Puppy Bowl Rolls Over Kitten.

Cats and Dogs, Living Together: DC Fans Launch Petition For Zack Snyder to Direct ‘The Batman’

Cats and Dogs, Living Together: DC Fans Launch Petition For Zack Snyder to Direct ‘The Batman’
I like Zack Snyder. That needs to be said first. His Dawn of the Dead remake is a superbly constructed, savvy joy. 300 is so much more interesting and beautiful than you remember. Watchmen is flawed but audacious, tackling un-adabtable source material with raw nerve and bravery. Sucker Punch is a disaster, but it’s the kind […]

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

Divorcing Couple Asks Judge to Treat Dogs like Children, Judge Apparently Not a Dog Person

Recently, there’s been some controversy as to whether pets can be properly considered a human’s offspring. Conventional wisdom would have it that yes, that can be a thing, if not in the letter of the law, than in the spirit.

That’s a good thing, too, because the law apparently isn’t sold on the idea.

A divorcing couple in Canada recently asked Justice Richard Danyliuk of the Court of Queen’s Bench for Saskatchewan to consider their three dogs — 13-year-old Quill, 9-year-old Kenya and 2-year-old Willow — as children for the purpose of establishing visitation rights. (The wife was petitioning for sole custody.

The Weekend Warrior 12/2/16: Incarnate, Jackie, Old Stone

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

It wasn’t a bad Thanksgiving weekend, especially for the Weekend Warrior who pretty much nailed two of his predictions for the weekend! Disney Animation’s Moana indeed at opened at #1 with $55.5 million for the three-day weekend (exactly my prediction), although it ended up with more--$81.1 million--in its first five days. The Brad Pitt-Marion Cotillard spy thriller, Allied (Paramount), directed by Robert Zemeckis, also opened with $18 million, right on track with my prediction. I guess I could take some comfort on being spot on with two of the Thanksgiving releases—like I said last week, that holiday weekend is a bear to predict—but I way overestimated the other two movies as sequelitis indeed hit Billy Bob Thornton
