One of the most beloved stories of all time is coming on March 30th for the whole family, Mirror Mirror. A fresh and funny retelling of the Snow White legend, Mirror Mirror features breakout star Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White, a princess in exile, and Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts as the evil Queen who ruthlessly rules her captured kingdom. Seven courageous rebel dwarfs join forces with Snow White as she fights to reclaim her birthright and win her Prince in this magical comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the Prince, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.
The Queen in this new version of the classic Snow White story. The script -credited to Marc Klein and Jason Keller -delivers a merry kid-level corrective to Disney, and while parents will have been there and done that, the verbal wit and Tarsem’s visual invention make “Mirror Mirror” entirely tolerable. Even so, if you are willing to overcome your disbelief in the end, the greater part of this movie is not half as bad. Especially because the story appears to have been scripted with a lot of focus on Julia’s character. It’s almost as if this version was written by the evil queen herself.
The movie “Bully” is a documentary that focuses on children bullying one another. It is a film to raise awareness on the issue and show the perspective of being the victim. The F-word is heard in the film and some movie critics say the film should be rated-R, because of use of the foul language. But, if the film is rated-R, then this would not allow kids to see the film. Especially it is made to target these middle school and high school students. The movie company wants to “bleep” out the F-words to make it rated-PG 13, allowing kids to go see the film without a parental guardian. However, the producers prefer to keep the F-words to make a stronger impact on the viewers. F-word or no F-word we can all agree that “Bullying” is not Fun.
Nicki Minaj performed her latest hit “Starships” in American Idol. She asked one of the judges Jennifer Lopez, to “scoot over a little bit” from the judges’ table. Jennifer Lopez’s response was not so friendly “There’s not enough room for both of us!” Jennifer laughed nervously. Looks like Minaj cannot move Lopez from the throne.
James Franco is to star in the new upcoming film “Spring Breakers”. Also starring is Selena Gomes and Vanessa Hudgens. Franco is to play a drug dealer, and he resembles almost identical to Britney Spear’s ex-huband Kevin Federline.
Nicki’s album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded will be released April 3rd. She has been tweeting about the release date and a picture for the album proves that her looks never get boring. Get those eyelashes ready because Nicki is taking the throne.

Wrath of Titans is a movie full of action and begins with a battle between the Titans and the gods continues in this sequel set ten years after the events in Clash of the Titans, as Perseus (Sam Worthington) descends into the underworld on a mission to rescue Zeus from the clutches of Hades (Ralph Fiennes), Ares (Edgar Ramirez), and Kronos. In the wake of his decisive victory against the Kraken, Perseus has retreated to a remote fishing village to raise his young son, Helius. Meanwhile, humanity has lost faith in the gods.
This movie has decent visual effects and Liam Neeson gives up on the dull dialogue and simply let the action do the talking. Director Jonathan Liebesman (World Invasion: Battle LA) deserves credit for the well choreographed fight sequences that make good use of both sound and visual effects. As for the action sequences, the focus is generally on Perseus’ attempts at survival, so some of the cutting is a bit too close and tight for my tastes. However, the larger the opponent, the wider Liebesman shoots and the longer he holds each shot that many scenes like these were replete with loud, blaring battles and glum so in few words is an entertaining movie that deserves two thumbs up and will be distributed in many movie IMAX 3D on March 30.th
