Stars in the new film Enders game now Harrison Ford began his career in Hollywood as a carpenter. Names -- music our literature. Actually it was a bang bang with hammer and all -- most people make that mistake by now know he was an actual car under -- under. Name musician. For whom Harrison Ford.

Point five dollars and then get to Sandra speeds pub and grill a Miller sport or on transit. No expiration date total value 43 bucks and general contest rules apply. Big lovely setting the big strain you whet our appetite now give us more on the. Anders game yes this is this is a movie that is is based on me a book that has been they're popular. With scifi fans particularly young ones. It started as a short story written by Orson Scott card in 1977 became full novel in 1985. He has refused to sell the movie rights for years sang at last you saw spirit -- happy -- there's no way he was gonna do it for. Quite a while he talked about never having film. A film version made of it. He did for more sequels. Two the original Enders game book and two other books that took place within world they're kind of -- sequel -- type thing. This is the case go witness writer where he does have a certain amount of baggage. With him he he is a Mormon he has actually they're great great grandson of Brigham young. And he has been very outspoken. In his opposition to bow homosexuality and same sex marriage. Which has gotten a lot of press on the line in a lot of us scifi forums a lot of entertainment sites. Most scifi movies. Try to steer clear of religion. Per say and one ideology over another at all often be influenced by it. The Star Wars films I know a lot of people say there's there are many many. Theories of christianity weed themselves through the whole idea of the force and Luke Skywalker and all that sores that. But they generally stay away from religion. -- say. And in terms of the author's very outspoken. Statements regarding. Homosexuality. I have to wonder. If it whether that will affect things org not it's been a big thing on line with a lot of the core audience that he would be looking. To interact with them this film. And it seems that. Teenagers nowadays. Same sex relationships and that sort of thing. Doesn't seem to be an issue for them it doesn't seem to be now they're concerned about at all if you listen to -- Popular music and a lot of TV shows and that. It's not something that's of concern -- this is something where I don't think we're gonna find out until this weekend when this movie opens up. Whether it's got to play a factor at all one way or another and when we come back will will take a look at the actual movie itself. -- will return right after this it's the movie show so above those enemies and he big big movies -- big -- Bob began to tell us about Enders game. Yes yes I do apologize. If I am bit. It's Natalie you -- today I'm not sitting there with the with piles you're allergic to something. You know after Katrina awfully lately -- yes -- addresses the movie critic. I don't know -- had this this. Big. Very yeah Fuzzy lightweight. And and appear short scenario and a tank top and I was walking on. I'm now -- sneakers on my knees and I was walking without your America. Not -- about it okay and very did you to a ghost and I was. A few goes at the huddle we get -- -- but go ahead now Bob -- -- about this movie is and his game this is why. One critic described this and from everything I've read here I did not read these books. Because I'm not a fortune Harold -- That's good your big boy now and yet. I one critic described is film has Harry Potter. -- full metal jacket popped up because it is it is. Pretty much split. Between the first half beaten the training. Of the people that are gonna fight and then the second half the film is the big battle. This takes place in the future. In a land far far away where things are shiny and bright newer home to -- that -- And apparently earth years ago was attacked by these big. Like creatures Democrats. Key to all know about that I don't think political affiliation is mentioned but. These these creatures attack. And dobbs they're going to return at some -- so earth wants to get prepared. For what they do is there training. The best and the brightest children. So they fight properly fight these these things. And this is kind of -- kind of -- saw the movie the last star fighter. Where aliens used a video game. On earth to try to find their best -- was -- video game -- that -- and help them out on the flight. This is kind of that on a bigger wider scale. And this one kid. And her Wiggins. And her that's is meant system delightful name under which got a close up Vuitton yet he's twelve years old. And he's just the fastest at these video games and training scenarios. Now if you think that -- it sounds like this movie kind of panders. To kids who spend all their time on their Smartphones. And playing video games that panders to them saying hey you're the kind of here we need to save the world. You are right now yeah exactly what they're doing here Harrison Ford plays colonel Hiram -- And he's trying to you know tree in this -- toughest male he is tough as nails -- like console low with a really bad hangover. And no sense of humor whatsoever this is Harrison Ford and very Graf will impede mold mode here. Ben Kingsley is Masur ran them.

He also deeply missed this bit Y -- elaborate accent like the stuff we did an Iron Man three here. The film. Looks great I mean the special effects are all dynamite and a tip of the hat. Do these folks tonight in 3-D. I decided let's just have a look great in two. I don't know that this is really gonna go very far beyond. The the younger audience that the books were -- I mean if you. If you look at a lot of the big scifi franchises. That it found -- us an enormous wide audience Star Wars Star Trek. Even Lord of the Rings are very much geared towards. All ages this one is a bit more geared towards towards -- -- it's from the folks at summit entertainment. Who brought us the twilight movies so they're bringing this out in November the old twilight released bottom there they're hoping. This will be their next big franchise. And we all know by Monday.

I've been hitting the big screen you've told us about Enders game and Las Vegas how about. Three thirds yes. Finally. An animated feature film about Turkey's. Here's the DL in this character mrs. directed by Jimmy -- he's the guy who did Horton hears a who. And Johnny hex which was violent. -- Wilson plays Reggie. A fairly intelligent Turkey. Who. Is that is pardoned by the president you know the president always -- one -- -- one Turkey which case Lincoln started the idea that every year so he's an out of the White House. And you know just enjoying pizza word -- slippers now -- is -- and everything. When suddenly the spine. Turkey voiced by Woody Harrelson. Tells them that. They need to do what they can to save. All the other turkeys from getting killed -- dollars so as you would assume. They get into a time machine. Up up up up up up front row I was believing -- voiced by George decay. And ally. Not opt opt out and they go back in time to the very first Thanksgiving. To try to convince the pilgrims. Not to eat Turkey yeah I get a month something else if this sounds like a really stupid horrible plot. -- Let and other. Thanksgiving movies are there. Now like amendment on this stupid movie with the Easter Bunny from a a year or so ago was like the only Easter -- movie out there. So every year in on the mortgage on cable and and this sort of thing. One of the things say they do. In this film that that is kind of peculiar. Is they decide to. Although they've got turkeys in a time machine talking to pilgrims pregnant and not eat Turkey. They decide to get kind of serious -- same time so they draw a parallel. Between the senseless murder of Turkey's. And the plight of native Americans over the last 350 years which -- at all. Is. Very serious injury is worthy of great examination I had miss Sasha and I don't think -- kids' cartoon. Really the places or one of the other very peculiar thing about this movie. He is via the product placement. A lot of action films -- tons of product placement it's a little more usual to -- -- pop up in an animated film. But here's the major product placement that takes place in this movie -- To convince the original pilgrims. It just to not eat Turkey -- and the first Thanksgiving. Show up with it stacks and stacks and stacks of boxes. From Chucky cheese. And they all -- Chucky cheese pizza. -- where they would continue to get checked and -- -- in the sixteen hundreds -- -- -- -- really don't go into Canada is our government because you hire an Indy and what the other problem does. It's just that it's not that fond of it allows them to sit through if you wanna watch a good poultry cartoon with kids and and -- about. Are there any good poultry cartoons out there of course there chicken run from Nick Park the guy who did the waltzing Gromit movies. Is kind of a take off. The great race. And day. Farm where they they -- chickens for chicken pot pies and Mel Gibson voices rocky. -- lead rooster. All of it is one of the funniest best animated film -- ever seen. Skip free birds -- apps and take your kids do watch watched your parents that Ariza who. Noticed and that's why there's a typo here or it's KKR I SH I'm gonna say Koresh flurry. Oh my gosh I did group. I did right on the sheet KKR. RI SH assess the actual spelling is K. Our our. I ash all that's changed the total now instead of courage its creation. And starring. Correction Russian -- creek destructive project which opera and -- Okay era I can get in an -- yes this is. Of course years ago. You had to the movies calling email guy. I was very successful in India so they followed that up with clinch which focused on. One of the main characters from corn mill guy. So they went to make that movie. So some people's will should you then call it courage to. Which you should -- this is actually the third movie would decrease character and people want and all of us so we got called career streak the same problem with the Rambo movies for all the fun. -- was called first blood. And then the -- called war -- so they made the why do they go do your on do you call that Rambo to -- -- they called Rambo three. So when you look at the list of movies because Rambo to Rambo three -- like where's Rambo well. I think people wanna see a good Koresh movie won't settle for commercially. I think they should -- this movie. -- yeah I want seven. The music videos and the trailers -- from India for this particular film. And it looks like who it looks like a blast this is a big bold. Special effects extravaganza. But it is from Bollywood. So if if you thought. The X-Men. Is such a good movie but. If only it had some big colorful dance numbers thrown at them. Love it wouldn't really rocked. What's. It like I ever saw was good and it's a hoot and I I watched the the trailers and templates wrote it and I I couldn't tell what was going on story wise and all about man. It really look up if you enjoy you know they've been Nam. Regal has been showing a lot of a lot of films from. Lately and it got so many screens each -- theaters they've been kind of separating one for a lot of these special films from you that don't give big releases here. And this one wild super character. Caribbean travel mindless that yeah I am horrible we show it cinema bottom it is -- ratio is it's an Alibaba me sandy beach big movies -- extreme Bob soldier about Enders game. Las Vegas three birds and crushed Hillary next fire and the bloods. Yeah this documentary it's gonna be showing. Next Thursday for 1 evening on meet -- the eastern hills mall it's. Basically. About the problem that existed. In in the ninety's well ninety's actually you ninety's through -- early part of 2000 -- Where there were great strides being made in pharmaceutical. Treatment of -- Yet areas of the world. Where there was just an enormous epidemic of the disease going on the pharmaceutical companies did not want to budge on price. At all in terms of treatment. Here in the US people were willing to pay forty dollars a tablet and the drug companies did not -- budget all one price. In in other areas of the world Africa is the place that was hit. Hardest. -- -- year 2000 for instance two thirds. Of the world's HIV cases were in Africa. In twenty and 2003. Thirty million Africans had HIV but only 50000. Were actually able to receive. Treatment they estimate about ten million lines were lost. During that time period and this this just kind of examines what happened there. Politically William Hurt marriage this. Several people who were in place the political power. Are also part of it but. The documentary does its best to keep politics out of it and just look at. Just what occurred. Why it occurred. And questions. The ethics and morality. Pharmaceutical. Companies in that time epidemic and enormous medical crisis. Okay and thank Cuba new revenue each of these have thank you Iran -- -- -- -- a -- monsters university a lot of good good people this this is lighter. And fire in the look are we are looking for a good time this actually. Would be at its stores watch this one home the other night myself. This is a follow up to picks ours. Monsters -- although it's a prequel. This takes to Billy Crystal and John Goodman characters back to their college days where they met. Before they started working for monsters companies -- Mir and Charlie day from it's always sunny in Philadelphia Alfred Molina also. You voices as is usual for 88 Pixar video released -- So many extras in this things pars making little extreme games. Extra feature rats is ours does special things for kids can have on wet and they also talk about. The difficulty that -- our hands in in making sequels. Computer animation is just growing. By leaps and bounds as far as the sophistication. Of it goes when I was watching this film the other night. There were few moments where characters word let's say writing boss were driving in a car and they were showing from long shot and I just felt like. I don't feel like I'm watching animation here all that just looks like boss wrote it is so realistic. But when you're doing a sequel. To something that was made ten years previously. Animation is going to be quite as precise the animation may -- isn't quite as good so you wanna have a look. That will still match the original and home picks are definitely ran into this problem would Toy Story films. Trying to have them all feel of one piece. Yet does steel -- -- -- take advantage of these advances with an animation. But if you enjoy good animated cartoons if you're Pixar fan at all. This this was another winner from -- now this next realm as one that I was excited to see in the movies you tell me don't bother it sucks when it comes out it's out. Our IP they would Jeff Bridges yes this is basically Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds doing pretty much a man in black type. Buddy cop movies situation and this was. Definitely one of the biggest flops of the summer this this came and went vary very quickly. The the whole angle. Aliens. Seem to just not appeal to audiences in general. And this is one of my things are always fascinates me what do you do with the big flop. When you know put it on video. Do you treated in the same fashion that you did for its theatrical release and I was looking at the packaging. For this movie yesterday. They basically have Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. Rushing at you they poll their hold in their guns. And it looks like. It looks like a lethal weapon -- it looks like a big cop movie thing. You would have. So Lou no idea that aliens or any kind of scifi goofy -- -- involved here all. As far as the video released goes there hoping the people -- -- look. Movie let's watch a project. Are the next autism her announced visit India or Brazil and -- whatever it is GM is in VM I got to right the first time but I recovered to pronunciation is just widgets markets really don't know but well retire.
