    PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE

    Dusty delivers!  He dives, he swoops, he scoops, soaring into our hearts again!  PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE may be the epitome of the Disney themes of "friendship first" and "lend a helping hand", not to mention second chances, as aerial racing legend Dusty Crophopper takes his place in history as a SEAT (Single Engine Air Tanker) joining the other brave members of the Piston Peak Air Attack Team in their battle of wildfires in the Southwest/West United States. 

    With returning old friends and new alike, PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE dazzles with technical achievement for animation effects with raging wildfires in one of our country’s beauteous national parks, employing stunning aerial design of not only Dusty but newcomers Blade Ranger, L’il Dipper and Windlifter, while creating memorable anthropomorphic characters that elevate the levels of sincerity and emotion. 

    PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE sizzles with eye-popping delights!

    MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT

    Writer/Director Nicole Gomez Fisher is a new voice on the cinematic horizon.  With a background as an actress and stand-up comedienne, Gomez-Fisher now jumps behind the camera, making her feature film debut with the delightful, and delightfully funny, SLEEPING WITH THE FISHES. 

    A film that mirrors the tones of Moonstruck and City Island filled with embraceable characters and relatable familial situations that give a feeling of Ugly Betty for the big screen, FISHES boasts a stand-out cast with everyone from Priscilla Lopez and Gina Rodriguez to Ana Ortiz and Steven Strait, not to mention a breakout performance from the adorable Misha Seo, who makes her feature acting debut. - See more at: http://moviesharkdeblore.com/site/movies/sharkbytes_view.php?editid1=131#sthash.WHigZdnz.dpuf
    From a 1925 Alfa Romeo to Jacki Weaver draped in $2.9 million in diamonds to vintage 1920's French couture to the ethereal elegance of  Cap d’Antibes and Mouans-Sartoux to the ever dashing Colin Firth (*sigh*), Woody Allen steeps us in old world beauty and classic glamour touched with a bit of whimsy and all bathed in the MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT. 

    Sparkling and twinkling like the bubbles in a glass of pink champagne or dancing like points of light on a moonbeam, with subtext, humor and romance, Allen creates a period perfect world of enchantment.  Calling on his own lifelong love of and fascination with magic, Allen immerses us in an illusory world that beckons believers and non-believers alike, celebrating the era-spawning seances and mediums and a time where illusionists conjured oohs and aahs, much like Woody Allen does with his films. 


    Classic romanticism told with the whimsical humor that is Woody Allen, MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT is just that - magic.

    GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

    Given the anticipated scope and magnitude of the film, the large cast, the thematics as a whole, just the pure majesty of the Marvel universe and perhaps most importantly, the heart of the story and the individual characters, GUARDIANS was unlike anything Gunn had tackled previously in his career.  

    But now, having seen GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, I can say wholeheartedly that James Gunn and the Guardians go for the gusto, rocking the galaxy and blasting off  with all cylinders firing.  Talk about not only an impressive tentpole film, but an explosively fun and dynamic complement to the Marvel universe!  You laugh, you cry, you laugh some more....and then you find you're tapping your toes to Blue Swede and Redbone!  Say what?? 

    GUARDIANS has got it all!

    THE EXPENDABLES 3

    You know them.  You love them.  You have a kick-ass time with them.  And they’re back! Bigger and badder than ever, THE EXPENDABLES 3 has you breathless within the first 10 minutes, setting the stage for the most explosive film of the year.

    The third installment in this highly successful franchise finds the single largest cast of action stars from the past 30-plus years ever assembled in one film. Once again led by Sylvester Stallone and returning fellow action heroes, Schwarzenegger, Statham, Lundgren, Crews, Couture and Li, joining Stallone’s corner are Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Kelsey Grammer and Antonio Banderas while Mel Gibson is the bad guy to end all bad guys (there’s something about seeing Riggs vs. Rocky/Rambo that is too delicious for words).  Rounding out the already action-packed muscle-bound might of the EXPENDABLES is the youthful vigor, energy and 21st century hi-tech savvy of Kellan Lutz, Victor Ortiz, Glenn Powell and Ronda Rousey, who are poised to become “heirs apparent” to the franchise and the action genre. 

    To put is bluntly - THE EXPENDABLES 3 IS BEYOND BADASS!!!!

    THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY

    Food and family are touchstones for us all.  A blueprint for cultural co-existence, celebrating the underdog who gets by with a little help from his friends - and sometimes enemies -  food is the true melting pot for the world. When director Lasse Hallstrom last seduced both the foodie and romantic within us, it was with the sensory intoxications of “Chocolat”.  Now, with THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY, he delivers a rich savory blend of cinematic sugar and spice guaranteed to satisfy the hungriest cinephile!

    With a pinch of humor and a dash of romance blended to perfection, Hallstrom uses a light touch when whisking his cinematic ingredients together for one of the most refreshing delectable delights of the year.

    VIN DIESEL Makes Groot Grrrreat in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

    One of the most indelible and adorable characters to emerge as a scene-stealer in Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is Groot.  Diehard Marvel Comics fans first met Groot (aka Monarch of Planet X) back in 1960 when he appeared in “Tales to Astonish” Issue 13.  Described as “an  extraterrestrial, sentient tree-like creature” Groot was originally an invader, capturing humans for experimentation.  By 2006, Groot crossed over to the Marvel Comics “Annihilation: Conquest”, reconfigured to be heroic and joining the Guardians team.  Since then Groot has appeared in a multitude of Marvel formats from comic books to cartoons to merchandising and even trading cards.  But we have never seen or experienced the Groot we now see in James Gunn’s universe and that’s all due to Vin Diesel - the voice, and the heart, of Groot.

    "There was something very therapeutic, in my personal life and my professional life, after dealing with death, playing a character that celebrates life, in the way that Groot celebrates life.”

    DANE COOK:  "I loved Jerry Lewis growing up"

    As the voice of Dusty Crophopper in Planes and now Planes: Fire & Rescue, Dane Cook fulfills the dreams of so many kids who, like himself, can’t contain their excitement on meeting or hearing the voice of their “hero” talking to them.  On meeting his young fans, Cook speaks to them as Dusty and watches smiles spread across their little faces, a joy that he knows all too well. 

    For Cook, who grew up listening “to comedy albums and then finally got to meet Bob Newhart and hear Bob Newhart’s voice talking to me”, the experience was unforgettable.  But it’s Jerry Lewis who is at the top of Dane Cook’s list.

    From soup to Showtime Grill, Helen Mirren cooks things up in the kitchen

    In her latest film, THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY, Helen Mirren plays the stoic and hauteur Madame Mallory, proud owner of the well-respected Michelin star holding restaurant Le Saule Pleureur.  A true lover of French cuisine with an inscrutable palate, Madame Mallory knows food and its preparation.  But what about Helen Mirren?

    When it comes to her own culinary skills, two things rank high for this Dame.  The first, soup.  The second?  "My Showtime Grill that I bought from watching Ron Popeil on the television. . .It's fantastic!"

    When it comes to her own culinary skills, two things rank high for this Dame.  The first, soup.  “I love making soup because soup is an endlessly changeable thing.  You can put anything in it.  It’s constantly changing.  So, I do like making soups.  Actually I like eating soups, too.”   Her favorite?  “I love french onion soup.  If it’s done the proper original French way with French bread, French Gruyere on the top.  So good.  I’d go a long way for a very very good French onion soup.”

    Yet nothing tops her affection and appreciation for Ronco pitchman Ron Popeil and his Showtime Grill.   Describing it as “genius” and “my great cooking secret”, for Mirren “My Showtime Grill that I bought from watching Ron Popeil on the television. . .It’s fantastic! - See more at: http://moviesharkdeblore.com/site/movies/sharkbytes_view.php?editid1=161#sthash.0CfToCmD.dpuf
