Here’s the full trailer for Thor showing us Chris Hemsworth being booted out of the celestial heavens…only to enter a new heaven: the lips of Natalie Portman. But seriously, we get the inexplicable speaking of English in Sky High, some hammer swinging, Michael Bay explosions, and the promise of two worlds colliding, literally.
It’s hard to praise a children’s movie for being nostalgic, because children have the attention spans of goldfish, and haven’t been sentient long enough to be nostalgic about anything. But that’s exactly what Disney has achieved with Tangled, a well-made, story-book feature that feels like the glory days of the Disney musical (back before the term meant a vehicle for Zac Efron).
A young girl is torn between between unhealthy affairs with two men, one of whom may be a werewolf. Also, she spends a lot of time gazing to their eyes in the woods. How is this movie NOT Twilight?
With a plot that is way too similar to Speed, Tony Scott delivers us a movie that’s not quite as explosive as a missile the size of the Chrysler building in Unstoppable.

As it being an election week, in America, we have compiled a list of election movies worth watching.

In addition, if you’re thinking of being an electoral candidate in the future, maybe you can learn a few lessons from these movies as well…
The gags on Jackass 3D- and Jackass, in general -fall into a handful of categories: flying objects and people, vomit-inducing pranks, self-injury, injury to others, animal provocation, and doing something funny while dressed in costume. If you’re down with that, then this movie is for you.
Self-descriptive movie titles have toned down their pride a bit since The Greatest Story Ever Told, and I’m happy to see that this movie’s name doesn’t jinx it. It’s endearing, entertaining, and yes, it’s kind of funny.
