Love at first sight is one of those enduring mysteries that the majority of us believe in and surveys show more than half have experienced. That the object of such affection is a married woman is as classic a dilemma as Paris and Helen of Troy.
In “The Right Kind of Wrong,” a romantic comedy, or perhaps a comedy about the madness of romance, we are introduced to Leo, a total romantic and a failed-writer-turned-dishwasher made famous for his many flaws in a blog called “Why You Suck,” a huge Internet success written by his ex-wife Julie (played by Kristen Hager).  Then Leo meets Colette (Sara Canning), the girl of his dreams… on the day she is marrying the perfect man.  And so, the ultimate underdog story begins as Leo, a fearless dreamer, risks all to show Colette and the whole wide world all that is right with a man famous for being wrong.  

Award-wiining troupe assembled in “THE MONUMENTS MEN”

“The story of the Monuments Men is one that really very few people know,” says George Clooney, who returns to the director’s chair for the story of a small group of artists, art historians, architects, and museum curators who would lead the rescue of 1000 years of civilization during World War II in his new film, The Monuments Men.  “Artists, art dealers, architects – these were men that were far beyond the age that they were going to be drafted into a war or volunteer.  But they took on this adventure, because they had this belief that culture can be destroyed.  If they’d failed, it could have meant the loss of six million pieces of art. They weren’t going to let that happen – and the truth of the matter is, they pulled it off.”

Part of the drama of the film is that all of the Monuments Men are so unsuited to serving as soldiers in wartime.  “Wars are fought by 18-year-olds,” says Clooney.  “Once you get to the John Goodmans and the Bob Balabans and the George Clooneys, you know – these guys are not getting drafted.” Producing and writing partner Grant Heslov adds: “They did it because it was clear that they were the only people who could do it.”

An engineer, an accident, and a vision
G-shock how it came to be

Back in the day, watchmakers were in constant competition for the slimmest or most lightweight watch in the market. At that time, most people considered watches to be fragile instruments, including Casio’s then head of watch design, Kikuo Ibe.

One day, on his way to work, Kikuo Ibe accidentally dropped his precious watch that was given to him by his father. He watched it break into pieces and suddenly had a vision to build a watch that wouldn’t break –even when dropped. That day marked the beginning of the G-SHOCK story.

 “Geography Club” comes in at a most opportune time when the world now has learned to embrace that being different is no taboo after all.  Based on Brent Hartinger’s acclaimed, best-selling young adult novel, “Geography Club” is a fast, fresh coming-of-age movie that tells a real and powerful story unfolding in every high school around the country – a story of kids hiding their true identities in plain sight, even as they feverishly pursue their hearts’ desires.   

The MTRCB, local (Phils.’) censors board gave it a PG rating (viewers below 13 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or supervising adult) and highly commends the movie as “Sweet and sensitive coming out, coming of age movie based on the first novel of the young adult series/play of the same name.  Nuanced direction and performances make this a must-see and highly recommended.”

Fantastically real in "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"

Ben Stiller directs and stars in THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY (opening January 22 in Phils.), James Thurber's classic story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined. 

In 1939, when James Thurber first published “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” he brought a playful, modernist style to the story that lured readers directly into the experience of Walter Mitty’s fantasy life.  In Ben Stiller’s latest adaptation, he hoped to do something similar, using modern cinema to open the story up visually in a way that couldn’t have been imagined in Thurber’s day. He knew there were several ways to approach Mitty’s fantasizing.  But there was only way he felt that was right for what he wanted audiences to feel:  using a deftly crafted hyper-reality that merges Mitty’s inner stream of consciousness into the fabric of what’s going on in his outer world.

“Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie” transports us back in time to prehistoric Alaska before the Tyrannosaurus Rex, delivering a dramatic, funny and emotional cinematic experience that is both immersive and uncannily authentic. 

From this, the audience discovers what dinosaurs actually looked like, how they lived, the dangers they faced and the challenges they overcame in order to survive.   A thoroughly immersive experience, the film blends live action footage of real locations (Alaska and New Zealand) with impressive CGI creatures. The hero of the story is Patchi, a tenacious and courageous Pachyrhinosaurus who is born the runt of the litter and, against all odds, grows up to become the leader of the herd.

“Walking With Dinosaurs” is a rousing, compelling adventure full of humor and heartwarming moments as you see our hero Patchi draw on all of his courage, optimism and tenacity, risking his life for his loved ones and finding the inner strength he needs to survive.  As we follow his epic journey we meet a cast of colorful characters. There’s Alex (an Alexornis), a colourful and gregarious bird, who likes to hold court. Scowler, Patchi’s ambitious older brother intent on becoming the leader of the herd and Juniper,  a feisty female Pachyrhinosaurus who is swept into the adventure.
