TRANSCENDENCE: Joel Courtney & Kat McNamara's Movie Star Movie Crix Movie Review

Transcendence dives into some heady ideas, but do they make sense? KidsPickFlicks Movie Star Movie Crix Katherine McNamara (Contest) and Joel Courtney (Super 8) say it's a film worth exploring:

"To what limits should technology stretch? Transcendence does not answer this question, it merely begins to explore its possibilities. The film follows the story of Will and Evelyn Caster as their journey to creating artificial intelligence changes suddenly when Will is fatally wounded by an intelligence resistance group. Stunning visual effects show a myriad of futuristic technologies made possible in this world including plants being brought to life with nano-technology. These phenomena were made believable by the performances of Paul Bettanny and Rebecca Hall as they saw their possibilities for healing and destruction. Johnny Depp also delivered a fantastic performance as Will Caster in his ever-changing altered state of consciousness, if you will. Some strong language is used in the film, but not to a point of distraction from the story. Transcendence leaves audiences wondering, 'Can we measure a human soul?' 4 stars.."

Currently, Kat is shooting her upcoming MTV series "Happyland" and Joel just wrapped "The Messengers," a pilot for CW. They both have feature films coming out in theaters this year including Mercy and Little Savages. Follow them on Twitter @Kat_McNamara and @Joel_Courtney ... and follow us, too - @KidsPickFlicks!

 

 

 

TWILIGHT Mastermind Stephenie Meyer to Make Film from NOT A DROP TO DRINK

Written by Dave B.    Friday, 25 April 2014 13:47   

Stephenie Meyer, famed author of both the "Twilight" franchise and "The Host," has recently broken into the movie business with her production company, Fickle Fish Films.

Fickle Fish is gearing up to help another young adult author, Mindy McGinnis, bring her story to the big screen. Mindy's debut book, "Not a Drop to Drink," landed on shelves last year, and we can't wait to see it brought to life!

"Not a Drop to Drink" focuses on Lynn, who lives in a world that manages to survive with very little fresh water in existence. Her pond is the only source that Lynn knows of, and she spends a lot of her time protecting it from the forces of nature, animals, and others looking for a drink.

When Lynn notices faint hints of smoke in the distance, she knows that other survivors can't be far off, and she has to be ready for the next wave and possible attack on her pond.

The entire story of "Not a Drop to Drink" makes us thankful that we live in a world of water purification plants and Brita filters. Make sure you keep checking back to KidsPickFlicks for all of the details on this upcoming feature.

 

It's Off to BATTLE for THE HOBBIT

Written by Dave B.    Friday, 25 April 2014 13:32   

So long to the days of There and Back Again, and let us usher in a new era of The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies! That's right... The Hobbit got a name change!

Peter Jackson recently had a revelation while shooting on the set of the third installment of The Hobbit trilogy, and it turns out that There and Back Again wasn't the best subtitle for the upcoming adventure.

Peter said that a lot of the "There" part of the title was accomplished in Desolation of Smaug, so the third movie would focus more strongly on the "Back Again" part. In the end, he just decided to scrap the whole thing!

Let's just hope the name change doesn't mess with Lord of the Rings fans too much! It shouldn't take long to adjust to The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. We think the new title sounds more epic anyway - we can't wait to see it in theaters on December 17!

 

Familiar TV Faces Materialize Into JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS Cast

Written by Dave B.    Friday, 25 April 2014 06:37   

The 80s are coming back! Piece by piece, anyway...

Jem and the Holograms is an interesting take on the music world. When Jerrica Benton is at school, she's a nobody. But when she takes the stage as Jem, she's a star! Think Hannah Montana of the 80s.

What really made Jem unique was her band. Really, they only had to pack and travel for one, because Jem's back-up was, well, holograms!

Now this iconic franchise is getting revived as a movie, and we're seeing some very real actors play some very transparent characters.

Star of the hit series "Nashville," Aubrey Peeples, is all set to play Jem, while her sister Kimber, will be taken over by "A.N.T. Farm" actress Stefanie Scott. Meanwhile, Hayley Kiyoko ("The Fosters") and Aurora Perrineau ("Pretty Little Liars") will be performing as Jem's holographic bandmates Aja and Shana.

We just have a feeling that Jem and the Holograms is going to be BIG! And you'll be able to say that you were there from the beginning. Make sure you keep checking back to KidsPickFlicks for all of the details on Jem and the Holograms!

Written by Dave B.    Wednesday, 23 April 2014 19:23   

BarbieBarbie has definitely one of the longest lists of jobs out of anyone that we know. And, her sense of fashion is impeccable.

In fact, just about the only thing that we haven't seen Barbie take part in, is a live-action adventure. That is... until now!

That's right, Sony is bringing our favorite doll of a million talents to the big screen! Not much is known about their upcoming movie, and we can't wait to find out more news as it develops. Where will Barbie take us in this new movie? Who will be playing her? There are just so many questions!

With a new Barbie movie announced, that means we'll have all of the latest details on the upcoming live-action comedy - we can't wait! Who do you think should play Barbie? Tell us on Twitter @KidsPickFlicks !
