Ice Age 2

With the weather warming for spring, the ice age must come to an end and the glacier melt. Needless to say, this isn’t too good for the likable cast of hit flick Ice Age, who are now coming back this season to save themselves and their bubbly friends from a fate much worse than being merely another sequel. If you enjoyed the company of Manny, Diego and Sid, by all means make a beeline for the box office when melting commences later this month.

Director: Carlos Saldanha
Starring: Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Dennis Leary, Queen Latifah
Rating: PG

Eight Below

Fans of dogs and arctic landscapes will lap up this vignette of courage and emotion, carried along by dependable hunk Paul Walker (Fast and the Furious, The Skulls) and a slew of lovable canines stranded by their valiant human companions, who then struggle against the odds to enact a touching reunion.
Already getting respectable reviews, Eight Below should be out in Asia by the time you read this.

Director: Frank Marshall
Starring: Paul Walker, Moon Bloodgood, Jason Biggs
Rating: PG

hoot

Hoot

Apparently named after the sound made by owls, Hoot sees a cadre of youngsters fend off impending doom as modern civilization threatens to take out native owls in Florida. Sounds trite? Well, it isn’t. In fact, Hoot has among the best characters we’ve seen in a family film recently, hilarious owls, environmental protection values, and stands as one heck of a head-turning experience (get it? Head-turning?).

Director: Wil Shriner
Starring: Luke Wilson, Brie Larson, Cody Linley, Logan Lerman
Rating: PG

thewild

The Wild

Here’s a case of déjà vu for you: no season can ever be complete without a Disney movie. Haven’t we met somewhere before?
In a vein blatantly similar to Madagascar, The Wild revolves around an animal running loose and finding itself in unknown waters. This time it’s Samson the young lion, who accidentally ends up in Africa, having come all the way from New York, and his friends must of course charge to the rescue.

Director: Steve Williams
Starring: Keifer Sutherland, Janeane Garofalo, William Shatner, James Belushi

ShestheMan-060318

She’s the Man

For the confused teenager in your household nothing’s better than a very confusing film about gender-bending and romantic messes. Just in time for the season of joyous love, this movie has one very determined young lady disguise herself as her brother in order to enter his world of posh socializing and elitist education, but of course it gets much better than that. Paying tribute to stuff like Tootie and Mrs. Doubtfire, She’s the Man promises and delivers on his/her premise.

Director: Andy Fickman
Starring: Amanda Bynes, Julie Hagerty, Channing Tatum
Rating: PG-13
