CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER -Joel Courtney & Kat McNamara's Movie Star Movie Crix Movie Review

Written by Katherine McNamara    Sunday, 13 April 2014 16:33   

The Captan America sequel is here - and already Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the biggest movie of 2014. Does it live up to the other Avengers films? KidsPickFlicks' Movie Star Movie Crix Joel Courtney (Super 8) and Katherine McNamara (Contest) say oh-yeah:

Captain America and Black Widow"Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a character-driven action movie perfect for Marvel's first venture in 2014. Some of our favorite characters return as fantastic as ever including Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and, of course, Chris Evans as Captain America. There is never a dull moment as the film has a steady flow of action from beginning to end. The amazing fight sequences certainly do not disappoint, and the computer graphics were visually stunning. This is a great film for the family but may be a bit intense for younger children. 5 stars"

Joel and Kat's movie Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn is due to open in theaters this year, as well as Joel's thriller Mercy and Kat's Little Savages. In the meantime, both will (hopefully!) be seen on the small screen - Joel  just finished shooting the CW Pilot, "The Messengers" and Kat is busy with her MTV series "Happyland."

Dusty Becomes a Hero in PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE (Trailer)

Written by Dave B.    Sunday, 13 April 2014 12:56   

Mayday from Planes: Fire and RescueLast year, Disney took us far above the world of Cars in Planes. We got to see things from a whole new point of view in Planes, and we fell in love. Like, instantly!

So it was pretty obvious that we couldn't have been more excited for the return of Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook). This time, he's using his magnificent speed not to win any races, but to save lives.

Dusty is joining a new crew of rescue planes, cars, and a multitude of other vehicles, and together they're determined to prevent the spread of forest fires, no matter how big.

Some of the new characters include including spirited super scooper Dipper (voiced by "Modern Family" mom Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers.

Of course, if he plans on really saving the day, Dusty is going to need a few modifications of his own. To see what we're talking about, make sure you check out the brand new trailer from Disney down below. And don't forget to see Planes: Fire & Rescue in theaters on July 18!

 

Do You Have a MILLION DOLLAR ARM?

Written by Dave B.    Sunday, 13 April 2014 11:28   


Disney's upcoming sports tale, Million Dollar Arm, is the inspiring tale of two young men from India who went from absolutely no baseball experience to trying out in the Major Leagues.

Now, Disney wants to find the next big name baseball player with the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest. And to do this, they're searching the entire country for amateur baseball pitchers looking to show off their mind-blowing skills.

U.S. residents 18 or older are invited to test their skills at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California, and the Tribeca Family Festival in New York. They'll be choosing three contestants from each location who throw the fastest pitches to advance to the finals.

Finalists will head off to the premiere of Disney's Million Dollar Arm. There, they'll compete to see who can throw the fastest pitch. Not only will they be able to mingle with the stars of the movie, but the pitcher who comes out on top will walk away with $1 million. Not a bad deal if we say so ourselves!

Pitchers everywhere can head to Disney.com/PitchingContest for all of the details on the contest. And make sure you check out Million Dollar Arm when it heads to theaters on May 16.

 

MOM Star Blake Garrett Rosenthal's Top 5 Sports Movies

Written by Blake Garrett Rosenthal    Sunday, 13 April 2014 00:00   

Blake Garrett RosenthalBlake Garrett Rosenthal stars on the CBS comedy Mom as Anna Faris' sweet and overly-honest nine-year old son, Roscoe. Faris isn't the only comedy giant he's had the chance to act with: Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, Kristin Wiig, Rainn Wilson, are among Blake's co-stars! Acting isn't Blake's only passion - he also loves playing sports. His favorite sport is basketball, but he also enjoys baseball and football. He is a huge fan of the Clippers, Packers, Dodgers, and the Yankees. With such a devout interest in sports -- and with the NFL movie Draft Day hitting theaters Friday - we asked Blake to list his Top 5 Sports Films.

Happy Gilmore1. Happy Gilmore. Starring Adam Sandler as a want to be professional hockey player with an amazing slap shot. He doesn't have the talent to play pro hockey but can hit a golf ball 400 yards. He joins the pro golf tour to raise money to save his Grandma's house. Adam is hysterical and I
spent most of this movie, which I have watched over and over again, laughing so hard my stomach hurt.

Space Jam2. Space Jam. Michael Jordan, whom I got to meet this past summer, joins the Looney Toons basketball team and has to go against an alien
team. It has an amazing cast that includes Bill Murray, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, and Larry Johnson. This is a fun family movie.

The Waterboy3. The Waterboy. Another Adam Sandler movie. He plays Bobby Bouche, a socially awkward water boy who joins the team and becomes the most feared linebacker in all of college football. He leads his team, who couldn't win a game without him, to the Bourbon Bowl. I've watched this movie over a dozen times and it still makes me laugh so hard.

4. 42.  This film tells the story of #42, Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play in major league baseball. He joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 and had to endure incredible hatred and intolerance. This is an amazing real-life story that I also wrote a report on for school. This is a must-see movie for everyone.

Thunderstruck5. Thunderstruck. Starring Kevin Durant, the basketball star for the Oklahoma City Thunder and one of my favorite current basketball players. It's about a 16-year old boy who isn't a good basketball player, who switches talent with Kevin Durant. This is a great movie to see for any basketball fan.
