dog's journey review

We don’t deserve dogs. Lovable, loyal companions that want nothing more than to be by our side (and eat our food), dogs are too good for this cruel, stupid world. While we don’t deserve dogs, dogs definitely don’t deserve movies like A Dog’s Journey, the weepy, manipulative, upsetting sequel to the surprise hit A Dog’s Purpose. Once again, audiences will be forced to watch dog after dog roll over and play dead, all in the name of telling some sort of half-assed spiritual story about reincarnation. Are the pups on screen cute? They sure are. Is that enough to make this movie worth seeing? Absolutely not.

the intruder trailer

One thing your realtor never warns you about is buying a house from Dennis Quaid. Realtors have no legal obligation to caution prospective homeowners about prior Quaid-ownership, but as The Intruder trailer proves, such knowledge could be useful. Because Dennis Quaid doesn’t like it when you move into his house, folks. And he really doesn’t like it when you start making alterations. And a young couple played by Michael Ealy and Meagan Good are about to learn that the hard way. Watch The Intruder trailer below.

I can only imagine box office

I Can Only Imagine, a faith-based film from Roadside Attractions, is a surprise box office hit. The film ended up in third place over the weekend, just below reigning box office king Black Panther and new release Tomb Raider, and above Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time. How did this happen? I can only imagine.

a dog's purpose sequel

A Dog’s Purpose may have found its calling: in China.

The heartwarming tale of a dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who gets reincarnated multiple times before he finds its way back to his owner (Dennis Quaid) may have had middling success in the States, but it was all the rage at the Chinese box offices, bringing in $88 million compared to the domestic $64 million haul. And it’s the power of Chinese pet-lovers that has helped greenlight A Dog’s Purpose sequel.

bradley cooper talking dog

Bradley Cooper has convincingly portrayed a sniper, a coked-up FBI agent, a camp counselor, a talking raccoon with an anger problem, and, many times over his career, the generic wisecracking best friend in romantic comedies. If he can accomplish all of that, why couldn’t he pull off playing a dog? Learn more about the Bradley Cooper talking dog movie, A Dog’s Purpose, after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Half a decade after Zac Efron‘s last High School Musical outing, he’s still working on the challenging transition from Disney dreamboat to serious adult actor. And while he’s not quite there, he seems to be getting a little bit closer with every passing film. Neither The Lucky One nor The Paperboy were particularly well received, but they at least allowed Efron to try his hand at more mature material, and his supporting role in Liberal Arts earned some critical appreciation.

Perhaps Efron’s best shot yet at proving his chops comes from At Any Price, the latest drama by Goodbye Solo and Man Push Cart director Ramin Bahrani. Reactions to the film were all over the place after its Telluride debut last year, but for what it’s worth, our own Peter Sciretta called it his favorite of the festival — better, even, than Argo. Dennis Quaid, Kim Dickens, Heather Graham, Maika Monroe, and Red West also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.
