Filming Location in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Production Company Lin Pictures, and New Line Cinema.
Dumbo live-action re-imagining of Disney’s 1941 animated classic is one of the sweetest film made. The baby elephant who can use his weirdly big ears to fly, still occupies the center ring in this extravagant new circus.
Colin Farrell stars as Holt Farrier, a circus performer who has just returned from World War I minus an arm and a wife who has died from influenza during his absence. That leaves Holt in charge of his two children, Milly (Nico Parker) and her little brother Joe (Finley Hobbins). In such reduced circumstances, financially strapped circus owner Max Medici (an energetic Danny DeVito) has sold the horses that once made Holt a star attraction and put the combat veteran in charge of Jumbo, a pregnant elephant. Max’s thinking is that an infant Jumbo will draw crowds to his traveling circus. But when the baby, cruelly tagged Dumbo, is born with oversized ears, Max wants nothing to do with him. That is until Dumbo uses those floppy ears to fly.

Hotel Mumbai is a tense dramatic thriller based on extensive research from the first attack in November 2008. We all remember the terrorist attacks that was coordinated by Pakistan militants. This includes a three-day siege by gunman of this five-star Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.
Jessica Zack talks to Dev Patel about Producing this film.
Although Dev Patel grew up in London, he has a striking connection with the city of Mumbai ever since his role in Slumdog Millionaire. This was Patel’s debut film, and shot in the mega-city on India west coast when he was 17 that was an unexpected global hit. That is what launched Patel (Lion, and The Newsroom) to worldwide fame.
Arjun character displayed extraordinary heroism and selflessness. This film is centered in the Taj Mahal hotel because it’s a microcosm of India. It is interesting the storytelling of the break down of culture barriers, and educating that at the end of the day everyone is equal.
At a click of a button, you’ll read news of a horrible attack in Vegas. You will than tweet about it. So to make a movie like this you make the audience sit and simmer in this situation for two hours. Not only you got the audience shaken, it’s given them a much-needed jolt of energy.
Run The Race tells the compelling story of what two desperate brothers sacrifice today for a better tomorrow. Book a group showing for your next church outing or gathering.
Bessemer, Florida, doesn’t have much to offer the Truett brothers. At least, not anymore.
After their mom’s tragic death, high school seniors Dave and Zach Truett have tried to piece their lives back together, but it’s not been easy. Their father, Mike, left home and turned to the bottle to numb his pain. And the boys? Well, they’re working on their own things.
Dave is strengthening his faith as he recovers from a previous, life-threatening injury. And Zach? He’s an All-State football star, pouring his time, passion and energy into a game that he hopes will be the two brothers’ ticket out.
But after Zach injures his knee badly in a brawl, Dave is forced to find an alternative escape from Bessemer. Now, both brothers must work together to truly break free from their painful shared past.
Tim Tebow and his brother got this film right. What a wonderful portrayal of the brokenness of a family and healing that is available. An emotionally gripping tale that was well presented. To be brothers…. Real brothers.

I really like this kind of movies that make us laugh contiuously. I think the LEGO Movie is not only for kids but grownups. There’re several factors that grownups can laugh at.(You recall Bruce Willis? Ha!) Hope these would be trilogy.
Here is movie trivia from The Lego Movie 2 originally had a release date of May 26th, 2017, but was pushed back until 2019 for the spin-off movies.
“A Dog’s Way Home” is a new gut-wrenching story about a man and his dog. The dog travels 400 miles in search of her owner to find her way home. Training a dog in filming must be pretty hard; I’m looking forward to watching this film. Seeing a dog going through the external elements it’s hard to not to feel sorry and you hope she finds her way home.
For those who like A Dog’s Way Home check out the Heading Home trailer. This is about the Tale Of Team Israel. After years of defeat, Israel’s national baseball team finally becomes eligible to compete in the World Baseball Classic. This charming documentary captures the pride of the participating athletes on the Israeli team, including several Jewish American Major League players. Play ball! This is Screening Tuesday, March 5, 10:00 AM at the Century 16 in Pleasant Hill.
|My kids have been tracking this movie for weeks and I had promised to bring them all (3 daughters all under 12.)|
Yes, this is the same story told again (Homeward Bound and it’s various sequels), however it’s a little different. The animals are animals, and they don’t talk, however the main dog (Bella) does tell the story from her point of view.
There are some areas where they replaced animals with CGI and some of it looks really good, but really fake, but 1- my kids didn’t notice all that much, and 2- it’s a movie… Let’s just turn off our minds for about 2 hours and just watch a wholesome family movie.
There were a number of crying kids, and even some of the adults walked out with some tears, so be prepared.
Overall it’s a really cute, adventurous, and fun movie! Perfect no, but it’s still great!
