Rating: PG-13 Stars: Claire Holt, Mandy Moore, Matthew Modine Writers: Johannes Roberts & Ernest Riera Director: Johannes Roberts Distributor: Dimension Films/Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures Release Date: June 16, 2017  The original JAWS is rightly a classic, but since then audiences have learned to be wary of shark movies. SHARKNADO gonzo parody aside, they can be a cheesy bunch, with 2004’s destabilizing OPEN WATER a rare exception. Well, surprise. 47 METERS DOWN has most of the makings of a first-rate horror movie: a plausible set-up, multiple sources of jeopardy, an environment that’s terrifying all on its own, ace special effects and […]Read On »

Fox’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, now in its tenth season Tuesday nights at 8 PM, differs from that other network’s dance competition show in some significant ways. Instead of having people the viewers have heard of who are learning to dance for the first time, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE have extraordinarily talented unknowns working solo, in pairs and as a group. The top ten dancers of any season get a place on the seasonal live tour that travels throughout theU.S. and the series is considered a springboard for all types of careers in dance. After a […]Read On »

Exclusive Photos from the world premiere of Disney’s TANGLED

Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore at the World Premiere of TANGLED

Rapunzel let down her hair, finally (and in 3-D) as Disney held the World Premiere of their new animated film TANGLED at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California. It was a long backdrop that was painted to look like Rapunzel’s hair. Wigs were handed out to some of the photographers, myself included and we wore them while shooting. Mandy Moore  (Rapunzel) and Zachary Levi (Flynn Rider) posed with us as the photographers on the carpet shot our photos. It was fun, except that the long wig kept catching on everything! Walking the carpet were the stars of the film, […]Read On »
