(USA) In the third instalment of the Toy Story series, 18-year-old Andy (John Morris) outgrows his affinity for toys. Set to leave home for college, he leaves Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and friends behind to contemplate their fate—to retire gracefully in the comfort of the attic, or to be sold at garage sales and opt shops.
(USA) While John Lennon was compelled to make a worldwide apology for claiming that The Beatles were “bigger than Jesus,” Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), on the other hand, is capable of getting away with shenanigans like jetting down to an expo in grandiose fashion and applauding himself, on national television no less, for single-handedly maintaining peace in America. His rock-and-roll-god of an ego survives into this highly-anticipated sequel to Iron Man, and we can’t help but adore him for it.
(USA) With a film title as generic as The Losers, one naturally has preconceived notions of seeing a bunch of gangling social misfits who break into energetic musical routines to express their unhappiness about pubescent life. Thankfully, what you will see instead is 98 minutes worth of slick action coolness in the vein of Smokin’ Aces and Rock ‘n’ Rolla.
(USA) Adapted from Nicholas Sparks’ book (the same author of A Walk to Remember, which was also made into a film in 2002 starring Mandy Moore), this is a story of a misunderstood delinquent, Ronnie Miller (Miley Cyrus), who spends the summer with her estranged father, Steve (Greg Kinnear) at his beach house.
