Arctic Tale 

Not to be confused with wildlife-based animated movies, this one takes its cue from March of the Penguins and uses actual footage of live animals as a foundation. On it, the story builds a touching drama packed with moments of sadness and joy that are guaranteed to illicit quite the reaction from viewers. The story takes us to the Arctic Circle, where a mother polar bear and her cubs as well as a seal and her calf must face struggles and victories we can all identify with.

Director: Sarah Robertson
Starring: Queen Latifah, Preston Bailey, Kwesi Boakye
Rating: General

underdog

Underdog

Fetching is a time-honored tradition among dogs and their human companions, yet once in a while comes along a canine to challenge the old ways by being able to fetch from a bit farther afield. Like the other side of the world or at least London. As this implies, we’re not dealing with any ordinary dog, but rather Shoeshine, whom a secret lab experiment renders into a pooch version of Superman or Steve Austin. Faster, stronger, smarter and apparently a lot more capable of conversation. 

Director: Frederik Du Chau
Starring: Jason Lee, James Belushi, Alex Neuberger 
Rating: Parental Guidance

bratz

Bratz: The Movie

It had to happen. Last year’s animated grrrl power sensation Bratz now have their own action feature film. The plot? Well, does it need to have one? Of course it does. The lovely young ladies, as usual up with the latest fashions and all things pastel colored, embark on a mission to prove they’re much more than food fighting dolls or simple plastic toys. If nothing else, it’ll be most interesting to see what super producer Avi Arad’s people can do with the concept.

Director: Sean McNamara
Starring: Paula Abdul, Malese Jow, Skyler Shaye

Rush Hour 3

Rush Hour 3

Six long years have passed since the last Rush Hour flick ran wild in Hong Kong and Los Angeles, yet buddy cops Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are not ones to give up that easy. They return for yet more shenanigans in the third episode, this time looking bigger and better than the last two entries. The duo head out to that city of lights Paris, and even if beauty Zhang Ziyi is no longer part of the cast, we’re looking forward to some of the finest comical action of the season. 

Director: Brett Ratner
Starring: Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker, Roslyn Sanchez 
Rating: Parental Guidance-13

rocket_science

Rocket Science 

Summer doesn’t have to be only about geographical travel and having a carefree time. Journeys can also take the form of spiritual growth and discovery of the power in yourself and those around you. Take Hal as a case study. Despite suffering from serious stuttering issues, he decides to take on the challenge of the school debate team, en route facing pressures from his peers, the system and a few inner demons. Rocket Science has a lot to say and is a must watch, no doubt. 

Director: Jeffrey Blitz
Starring: Reece Thompson, John Patrick Barry, Anna Kendrick
Rating: Restricted
 

last_legion

The Last Legion

Yes, a movie about Romans! Not only does it provide a good lesson in history and some awesome battle scenes, but this one also deals with the almost forgotten twilight of the empire, when heroism and mythology were the stuff of dreams. The story tracks the voyages of one Romulus Augustus as he travels to Britain in search of the legendary last legion of Roman troops still loyal to the almost-gone imperial throne. For something similar to Gladiator and Alexander only slightly more kid-oriented, check it out.

Director: Doug Lefler
Starring: Colin Firth, Ben Kingsley, Aishwarya Rai
Rating: Parental Guidance-13
