Movie Review: ‘The Nut Job’

the nut job

Associated Press | Jan 17, 2014

Not all rats look exactly alike, even animated ones. But there's a real resemblance between a rat in "The Nut Job," the new film by Peter Lepeniotis, and Remy, the main character in "Ratatouille," that wonderful 2007 Pixar film. And that's not a good thing for "The Nut Job," because anyone who makes that connection will be likely also remembering how "Ratatouille" showed so beautifully that an animated film, done with the right skill and imagination, can be equally enchanting to kids and adults. Something that "The Nut Job," a decent but frankly forgettable entry to the animal-centered animated film oeuvre, does not. The movie certainly ... more

Movie Review: ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’

Associated Press | Jan 17, 2014

Having clung to the Russians as go-to villains long after the Cold War thawed, the movies find themselves current again with their favorite arch-enemy. Cooling Russo-American relations have yielded an opening for the return of Tom Clancy's CIA analyst, just in time for the Sochi Olympics. In the Jack Ryan reboot, "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," Chris Pine takes over as the spy who was played by Alec Baldwin ("The Hunt for Red October"), Harrison Ford ("Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger") and Ben Affleck ("The Sum of All Fears"). It's a decent legacy of a dark-haired, intellectual action hero. Ryan is a navigator of murky, reasonably... more

Movie Review: ‘Ride Along’

Associated Press | Jan 17, 2014

Joining the ranks of odd-couple police comedies, "Ride Along" delivers laughs over action, with loudmouthed funnyman Kevin Hart driving the hilarity. Stepping into the role of rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube's sidekick in this buddy-cop farce, Hart had a lot to live up to. Cube (real name O'Shea Jackson) and Chris Tucker were classic quipsters in the 1995 pot-comedy "Friday" that started it all, and when then-newcomer Mike Epps dropped in on the sequel, his chemistry with Cube led to a third film. The formula is always the same: Cube, who is level-headed for the most part, gets into trouble with his ridiculous sidekick. "Ride Along" is no d... more

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. - Chad Oulson was described by friends as a man who loved dirt bikes and his baby daughter. Curtis Reeves was a retired Tampa police officer with numerous commendations who liked riding his motorcycle with his wife. The men's lives collided in a movie theater altercation that left Oulson dead and Reeves in jail. Oulson was texting his daughter's daycare, friends said, and Reeves got mad. Authorities said Reeves shot and killed Oulson with a handgun after the men exchanged words. "He must have just snapped," neighbor Joe D'Andrea said of Reeves, describing him as friendly, "stand-up" guy. "I'm trying to put all of this... more
