THE LEGO MOVIE
Remember those beautiful fixtures you created using your lego toys as a kid? Those building blocks are coming to life in this new animated film out in theaters Friday. When one Lego man is mistaken for the extraordinary Master Builder, this ordinary kid finds himself smack dab in the middle of war to take down the evil villain of the town. With Morgan Freeman lending his voice to one of the characters, check out this flick to find if the newly recruited Lego man turns his life of normalcy into a life of heroism.
Written and directed by David E. Talbert, this film surely brings the funny. One member of the star-studded cast, Tia Mowry, describes it as “freaking hilarious!” Watch Paula Patton portray Montana Moore, a flight attendant searching for love by backtracking through all her past relationships. Although all of her exes are scrumptious, she realizes why each of them didn’t work. This rom-com is just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone), a former prosecutor, has dedicated his life to testing out the reliability of maximum security prisons. When he receives a multimillion-dollar offer to investigate one particular prison, he finds himself stuck inside. But his entrapment is no accident; he’s been set up. Now, the new captive must use inside forces, Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and outside forces, Hush (50 Cent) to find a way out. Pick up this DVD on the way home to see to see if he escapes.
INEVITABLE DEFEAT OF MISTER AND PETE
Summer usually marks an exciting and fun time for kids. But for Mister and Pete, this is their toughest one yet. When both of their mothers are taken away by authorities, the young boys are left to fend for themselves. That includes finding food, dodging child protective services and maneuvering through the rough streets of Brooklyn. With a star stellar cast featuring Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks and Anthony Mackie, this coming of age tale, out on DVD now, teaches that “only the strong rise above.”
