Movie Review: 'The Perfect Game'
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 04/14/2010 - 13:35

The real-life story behind The Perfect Game, opening April 16, is one for the ages. In 1957, a group of boys from Monterrey, Mexico with little baseball-playing experience became the first non-U.S. team to win the Little League World Series. They were led by a man who was once a pitching coach and then a janitor for a major league team. They overcame racism, lack of money and visa woes to make it to the championship.

Movie Review: 'Date Night'
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 04/09/2010 - 17:01

Tina Fey and Steve Carrell equal comedy gold, right? Well, if you’re talking about their TV shows, 30 Rock and The Office, you’re right on the money. When it comes to Date Night, their new big-screen comedy opening April 9th? Not so much. The pair work overtime to bring their first movie pairing to life and the results are definitely mixed.

Movie Review: "Clash of the Titans"
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 04/01/2010 - 17:00

After about a half hour of clunky dialogue and stiff acting, Clash of the Titans takes off with monsters and swords and boy-skirts and becomes the fun, visually arresting popcorn romp through Hollywood-ized ancient Greece you signed up for. Giant scorpions slash and sting their way across the screen, demons swirl and dive from the skies, and all manner of digital wizardry is spent on flying horses, gleaming swords, half-human crones—and a fearsome creature called the Kraken, whose appearance onscreen is way too short.

Latina Hollywood Report: America Ferrera’s #1 and Jennifer Lopez is Going 'Overboard'
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 03/30/2010 - 10:30

Proving (as if we needed proof) that the appetite for 3-D flicks is pretty much bottomless at this point, How to Train Your Dragon captured most of the box office dollars last weekend, followed closely by Alice in Wonderland. Coming in at #1, Dragon, the animated Dreamworks kid flick featuring a great story, bravura computer animation and America Ferrera voicing the lead female character, made a solid $43.3 million.

Movie Review: Hot Tub Time Machine
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 03/26/2010 - 11:00

Just like the big-haired, neon-colored, sex-and-coke-addled decade it ridicules/eulogizes, Hot Tub Time Machine is an unapologetic, raunchy good time. Never mind that the WTF title is as sophisticated as Snakes on a Plane—that’s actually part of the charm. Go with the absurdity and it’ll be as good a time as The Hangover.

Watch: Selena Gomez in "Ramona & Beezus"
By Mariela Rosario | 03/22/2010 - 17:00

The trailer for Selena Gomez's first big screen departure from Disney, Ramona & Beezus, has hit the internet and we are feeling all gushy about it. It's not just that we loved the Beverly Cleary books growing up (though we did, they made us feel less "different") but it's very evident that the connection between Selena Gomez and her on-screen little sister (played by Joey King) was real and sweet.

Movie Review: "How to Train Your Dragon"
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 03/22/2010 - 14:45

A boy who is a little different than those around him learns to use his oddity to come of age and help others. Pretty standard kid’s story/book/movie setup, right?  But in How to Train Your Dragon, it’s the premise for an engaging, layered movie that blends drama and comedy beautifully and uses 3-D in a way that will set the standard for animated kid flicks.

Movie Review: 'The Bounty Hunter'
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 03/18/2010 - 14:15

The Bounty Hunter stars Jennifer Aniston’s hair and body, and they are equally awesome. Her famous beach-blond locks swirl and swing sexily, her uber-toned body announces, “Hey, don’t I look amazing for 40?” in every single shot. And boy, do her hair and body make a great couple! They have way more chemistry than Aniston and Gerald Butler, at least. The duo play bickering exes in The Bounty Hunter, a tired, unfunny, romance-action adventure that clocks in at a life-draining 110 minutes.
