Chris Berman John McDowell Rogers well I'm gruden Roger is our sport -- kite. I'll let you know Skype that would explain that sports on TV and this is a sort of movie that I would be in front of a dispute like who was that in the out the -- -- gloves off. I I think.

Shrek or other films where you know -- to -- in the making a sequel -- -- this came and went but a lot of kids on analog kids liked it. This this is about. -- clause. I law because my fear it would French Fries -- -- -- -- apparently there very rare. In this film Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg. Our our the pair of -- pause here. They are in nature preserve they have three kids now and there arguing over how to raise them.

John Leguizamo Leslie and Chris change with Andy Garcia Bruno Mars George Lopez -- -- rental. I am amazed at how many reviews said cent while. The plot kinda hard to follow which usually don't hear a lot and kids -- growers of course a lot of conservation talk in the department of rain -- Force stationed. At -- to be fair though. Any movie where the animals -- the stars and look at Bambi you very very big about -- Right so that's an -- -- honor that's kind of what you end up with they of course wanted to put in a lot of musical numbers. Singing and dancing animals yes so they do is I guess a lot of the animals are trying out for current call. In real. So they do these American Idol type quick musical numbers where people are auditioning. One warning for parents though. It is really. Really boldly. Wildly colorful you may want to consider sunglasses I mean this movie is like. That's seen in 2001 a space Odyssey where they're zooming and all the lights and special effects. Like. Like that better than my -- Batman stuff dreary dark benefitting water is a very bright very colorful. This is one I think the -- have a good time. But I wouldn't say this is gonna be something like. Toy Story 3 years and Pixar stuff -- -- And joy just as much as -- and the like frozen where you're just as many adult fans this this one's more for the.

And -- -- to stop him from choking -- -- that the mom still dead the kid has killed the dead within nine. And the boy goes in an asylum. So they both grow up and now there in the early twenty years later thus mr. Has realized. It wasn't dad's fault. -- was possessed by that -- Her on the well. -- -- She figures out that Miller on the Walter. Is responsible for forty -- index over the years I 400 year old mirror line. I don't come here last forty years without breaking but this is the deal so all. Of course you would think at first I think -- -- overlooked in the U I -- IQ. And you would think hey. Hey you've just got. Break the mirror and then the -- won't be able to get anybody to kill anyone else throw -- -- daughters as old you can't do that because. Once we proof that this -- possessions people and forces them to kill the people will be acquitted -- it quit my brother and exonerate our follow everybody in my mother's death now. -- I've never been in a courtroom. Where they've said your honor I now bring to the witness stand a -- error that doesn't happen that often. But that's kinda the situation you're the movie goes back and forth from these kids to.

Big sandy beach big movies hitting the big -- draft day -- to knock it was next to the best offer with Geoffrey Rush yes this. Is. A film by -- happy at all. Oh really yes yes he did -- a parity self which is one of my favorite Williams one of my favorite movies of all time. Think very very peculiar movie for those people that are thinking. Good move. He's about an auctioneer. And that art dealer movies out there Geoffrey Rush. Plays a very -- Jerry mannered. Our dealer and auctioneer he's German follow yours wears gloves. And what he does is he collects fine art. By miss calculating. The value of having fun. By the pieces. At a low price that he puts out and then he gets it back from offered his -- ever the here is there's this wonderful. Collection of his and he gets involved -- Mysterious. Woman she's and the gore for a powerful. She's -- -- yes you can't Wear or sweaters and all all authority will not clear how she does not want you look at her she's always behind a screen. And he falls in love with or even though he's never seen her -- beyond his race and she's behind and so zero drove. I don't think he has a -- okay. But he just like shadow puppets com. So he's ignoring all of her art and each -- these little pieces. What turns out to be a mechanical man. Which you start putting together and then from there things get -- That from Barry -- -- on few. There isn't very kind of ranging from not so good view. I'm.

This one apparently a lot of people seem to feel there there's quite a bit of pad and the only survivor from the first film. Is going undercover in prison which I'm -- goes well for him. And. The first hour kinda slowly. But then once the action starts. The five reminding me -- Many viewers. Said they were just an east that they were able to get an. Fight scenes. To give you an idea here today institute of the characters in the event of your major characters. Based. All batboy Kirk. And claw -- girl. -- Yeah this is movie where you get -- bones break. Throats were slit heads are cracked wide open and and people certain complete. There's a lot of rapid standings the old face. Little -- and blah blah blah -- dislocated jaws and I course. Something for the whole family I just involvement on us and asked. At one point. The flight. Moves out into an -- And they show you and I shot of the -- Before the fight breaks out into it. And discovered. Freshly fallen snow. So why he didn't peaceful. And of course within a few minutes. It is just a suit be laden laden Brad -- -- yes and there's also a very exciting car crash a car chase in here. If you like your martial arts really. Really intense and you think a lot of bones snapping and blood spurting makes for good entertainment. The read too is the one for you. Not if you wanna see an auctioneer for that. You go to the best bird or the bone breaking you go to the ring very true. Next up Robin Williams Annette -- in the face a -- yeah. Blood in this one. This is. This is a very.

Oh she's a widow and our Robin Williams is next door neighbor who's who's just lovesick over he he adores her. And and she still likes this in about. Although there is no spark there even though he just kind of sits there and as that Mooney -- Droopy eyes William Z type thing looking at her. But then she's an an art museum. Happens. She sees.

Outrigger rent something new on the new release -- -- grudge match with the Niro and Stallone. This was advertised sell heavily when it came out at holidays.

A fight between Robert De Niro -- -- And Sylvester Stallone Rocky Balboa sell you -- you've got an immediate hook there. As far as you're supporting cast you've got Kim Basinger Kevin Hart who's very very hot right now. Alan Arkin and at the commercials. So focused mostly on Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin. More than they did Stallone and Robert -- -- golf. Because they just we're two of the funnier things in that picture lot of Baxter is and the video released. This is one of those films. If if you sit down to wit and expect to see something as good as the first rocky. You're gonna be disappointed.
