Gal Gadot as Shank in Ralph Breaks The Internet Wreck-It Ralph

Disney’s Ralph Breaks The Internet hits theaters in just a few short months, and fans are anxiously waiting to see who will be joining the cast. As with all sequels, new characters are introduced to keep the film fresh. This time, Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) will travel to the internet where they are in search of a replacement part for Sugar Rush. We already knew Taraji P Henson would be voicing Yasss, an internet algorithm who would help in their quest. But she isn’t the only new character to appear in the Wreck-It Ralph sequel.

Gal Gadot revealed that she is voicing the character Shank, a tough and talented driver in an intense and gritty online racing game called Slaughter Race. More on the story here below.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2

Crossovers are commonplace amongst the comic book movies. But one place that is waiting for it to happen is within the Disney universe, well at least its animated one. With so many Disney princesses at their disposal, it was only a matter of time before all of them would be brought together in one place. And we will see that happen in Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. John C. Reilly returns to voice the title behemoth known to wreck things, while Sarah Silverman reprises her energetic Vanellope von Schweetz.

Some newly released images are giving us a look at the upcoming sequel. Not only do we get to see the Disney princesses gathered together, but we have our first official look at Yesss (voiced by Taraji P. Henson). Check out the images below.

Movie Review: Peep World

Peep World
DIRECTED BY: Barry Blaustein
WRITTEN BY: Peter Himmelstein
STARRING: Michael C. Hall, Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson, Ben Schwartz, Judy Greer, Kate Mara, Alicia Witt, Taraji P. Henson, Stephen Tobolowsky, Ron Rifkin, Lewis Black
IFC Films
RELEASE DATE: March 25, 2011 (limited)

Ah, family. That’s what it’s all about, right? Spending time with the ones that you love as often as possible; sharing life and memories and laughter with them in the short time we’re on this beautiful big rock.

OK, so that’s what it’s about for a lot of people — it’s not so true for others. Like the Meyerowitz family, for example. Every single year they gather on their father’s birthday to celebrate the man that made them who they are today. Unfortunately, on this particular birthday gathering, one of them has the others not so happy and emotions are running high and hot.

Peep World is a movie about one person’s success at the expense of their own family. Nathan Meyerowitz (Ben Schwartz), an author whose book has gone on to massive popularity, skyrocketing him to the top of the world, is living the good life. The only problem is that his book is a tell-all, and it does not shine a positive light on his mother, father, two brothers, and sister.

Movie Review: The Karate Kid (2010)

The Karate Kid 2010The Karate Kid (2010)
Directed by Harald Zwart
Starring Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan, Taraji P. Henson
Rated PG
Release date: June 11, 2010

The number one stupid complaint people give in the midst of this sequel/remake craze, besides the fact that they shouldn’t do them, is that too many movies from our childhood are being ruined. I never understood that logic. You like the movies you like, for whatever reason it may be. No matter how bad it is, nothing that comes after it is enough to take away whatever it was that made you like it in the first place. The franchise may be tainted, but the movies within that canon that you loved aren’t impacted. For example, if this Ghostbusters 3 movie ever gets off the ground and sucks, the first one will still be a classic.

I’ve reexamined a lot of my favorite movies from my youth lately and realized that a lot of them really aren’t that good. I liked them at the time and that has carried over to me still liking them, but usually for nostalgic reasons. I am unapologetic about it, but truth be told, they are what they are. That said, comparing a current remake to one we hold dear from back in the day doesn’t usually have a fighting chance for that very reason.

Then there’s the new The Karate Kid.

Spoiler Talk: Date Night

Date NightIs your life monotonous? Do you feel like you are bored of your partner. Well stop whining and go watch Date Night!

I really did not know what to make of this movie when I first saw the preview. I really like Tina Fey and Steve Carell and their comedy style. I really cannot think of an instance where these two have worked together, at least if there was one I never saw it. So I was extremely interested to see what kind of chemistry they have.

The most exciting pull of the whole movie though is definitely the cast. When I watched the preview and saw stars like Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Jimmi Simpson, and Common, I knew this movie would have star power at the very least.

Well being that this is a slow weekend for movies this was a nice little story that I really enjoyed. It’s a somewhat unoriginal premise but then takes that and spins it with a more realistic couple and more realistic reaction to a crazy situation. The comedy was great and the improvisation stands out because it really was quite hilarious. Anyways, I am ready to get to the SPOILER TALK, how about you?

Below are some of my spoiler filled thoughts about the film. Don’t forget to add your input at the bottom in the comments section!

Watch Jackie Chan Train Jaden Smith In ‘The Karate Kid’ Trailer … Or Don’t

The Karate Kid

It’s the week of Christmas and as was assumed, the movie news is slow as slow can be. But there has been no slowing down for movie trailers and clips, and today brings the first trailer for the feared and unnecessary remake of the 1984 Ralph Macchio nostalgia-fest, The Karate Kid.

The remake stars Jaden Smith (The Day After Tomorrow), son of Will Smith, in the Daniel-san role, and Jackie Chan in the Mr. Miyagi role made famous by the late, great Pat Morita. While the premise is indeed the same, in this movie, the characters will not be; Smith is playing Dre Parker and Chan is called Mr. Han. Smith’s character and his mother (Taraji P. Henson) move to the faraway lands of China where he obviously doesn’t fit in at all. After an interaction with a young lady sees him getting a beating from a martial arts inclined boy, Chan takes him under his wing to teach him how to defend himself, citing “the only way to stop them, is to face them.”

Continue on to watch the trailer for The Karate Kid.

DVD Review: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Blu-ray)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Blu-ray DVDThe Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Directed by David Fincher
Blu-ray Edition
Starring Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release Date: May 5, 2009

A wonderfully witty and magical tale coming from a 1921 F. Scott Fitzgerald short story is what caught the eye of director David Fincher. That this odd fable can still be able to gather up the natural resources that it takes to create an emotional love story that harkens back to the earlier style cinema romances is a head scratching miracle. Fincher’s previous work has always been spread across the table, working with films that can’t be classified within a certain genre: Fight Club and Seven. His films specialize in making the brain feel numb, helpless, and absorbed; all in which were in top form with his last film, Zodiac. With The Curious Case of Benjamin Button he wants to see life from an entirely different perspective than that of what previous films have depicted and in a different way as he shot the film digitally giving the film a bitterness and isolated feel. In doing so the result is that of a perspective that we can’t even begin to fathom, let alone appreciate.

We can’t appreciate moments in the film because our central character doesn’t fully appreciate them. His name is Benjamin (Brad Pitt) and he was born in 1919 as little as an infant but as old as an 80-year-old man. He lives life backwards as time goes by, decreasing in age while his looks become younger. All the while his brain tries to function what exactly is going on.
