'Pengiuns...' never takes flight

"The Penguins of Madagascar" is a spin-off from the successful "Madagascar" animated franchise, and while it has its moments of energy and humor, I think it would've been much more successful as a DVD release.

New 'Hunger Games' has sporadic action; good acting

The "Hunger Games" series continues with the recently released third installment, "Mockingjay - Part 1," which goes the same route that worked for both the "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" series: Split the final chapter into two parts to milk the proverbial cash cow.

'Interstellar' is another Nolan classic

Ever since he grabbed the public's attention with the Oscar-nominated "Memento" in 2000, director Christopher Nolan has established himself as one of the most brilliant filmmakers of the 21st century.

'Nightcrawler' is a masterpiece

"Nightcrawler" is nothing short of a revelation in filmmaking. It features a powerhouse performance by Jake Gyllenhaal and contains characters and an atmosphere that completely is in service to its story. I think if Michael Mann had made either "Broadcast News" or "Network," this is probably what it would look like.

'John Wick' enjoyable, if not original

'Fury' is realistic war drama

"Fury" is a World War II movie that provides a sense of intense, visceral violence and a semblance of authenticity that probably hasn't been seen since "Saving Private Ryan." I think this movie could be for WWII what Platoon was for Vietnam.

Have You Seen This? Why you should hire an electrician



ELECTRICIAN SCHOOL — Thanks to Pinterest and HGTV we all think we’re expert DIY pros when it comes to our homes.

There's no escaping 'Saturday Night Live'

Way back when, I grew up in lovely Calabasas, California, alongside such notables as Ricky Schroeder and Erik Menendez. (Thankfully, I got out before the Kardashians arrived.) If, by chance, you happen upon a copy of Calabasas High School’s 1986 yearbook, you’ll see a picture of my friend Aaron Priceman in a trenchcoat and sunglasses standing alongside yours truly dressed up as Ed Grimley.

'Risk' video game doesn't improve much on classic board game

The board game Risk: The Game of Global Domination has been around for a long, long time — almost 60 years, in fact — making it a bona fide classic in most people’s books. So it’s understandable that this electronic version of the game from “Assassin’s Creed” publisher Ubisoft, which is available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, doesn’t mess with the basic formula.
