Stopping at no lengths to find his missing daughter, a determined father, played by John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar), explores her social media accounts, emails, pictures, videos and more to aid in the police investigation.
Searching is now available on Digitial; Blu-ray and DVD arrive in stores on November 27th.
The full premiere episode of Selfie – ABC’s clever update of My Fair Lady, starring Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, Guardians of the Galaxy) and John Cho (Star Trek) – is being made available to Twitter users beginning today. Details follow the jump. (I’ve seen the premiere and it is well worth checking out.)
The reunion of Harold, Kumar and Neil Patrick Harris [playing ‘Neil Patrick Harris’] is a joyous paean to the power of bromance, true love and claymation – it’s also rude, crude, crass, vulgar and all sorts of wrong on so many levels. That’s what makes it so much fun!
Since it’s officially “Summer Blockbuster’ season, let’s start out by taking a look at what’s already in the theaters before we take a look at what’s currently in production.
Top five movies at the box office right now are:
1. Toy Story 3 – Tom Hanks, Tim Allen
2. Grown Ups – Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek, Kevin James
3. Knight and Day – Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgaard
4. The Karate Kid – Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith, Taraji P. Henson
5. The A-Team – Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley
Judging by these box office results, Tom Cruise and Jackie Chan are both getting the stuffing kicked out of them by a bunch of beloved Toys. Out of these five movies, I’ve seen Knight and Day, The Karate Kid and The A-Team. The Karate Kid reboot left me wondering why they bothered. Other than an absolutely powerhouse performance by Jaden Smith, and I firmly believe he is going to be a huge star for a long time to come, I found the reboot to be tedious and without the storytelling power of the original. I like Jackie Chan, but have to be honest and say I found him to be dull and lifeless in this movie. On the other hand, I thoroughly enjoyed both the A-Team and Knight and Day. Finding both movies to be satisfying action adventures to while away a hot summer afternoon with.
When it premiered last fall, FlashForward was considered to be one of two potential replacements for the departing Lost – at least in terms of epic, serialized storytelling. The series premiere set out the basics – for two minutes and seventeen seconds, everyone on the planet lost consciousness. In that time, they experienced visions of where they would be in six months time.
In my review of the premiere, I wrote, “While the premise of the series might seem to limit its shelf life, there are good people involved – and they were smart enough to hire Mr. Sawyer as a consultant. Put that together with a premiere that is superbly put together, with fine performances and a judicious mix of action and intelligence, and the result is one of the best hours of television ever made – and the best pilot of the fall season… in a walk.”
