“Epic” is an animated action/adventure movie from the people who brought you the “Ice Age” franchise and “Rio”. In it, a plucky young girl finds herself magically miniaturized and thrown into the middle of a battle for the future of the forest.
Up tempo, occasionally humorous and brightly animated, “Epic” is sure to fit the bill for families and kids looking for a trip to the movies.
“3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom” is an oddball comedy about a man cursed with an idiotic brother who is unintentionally determined to ruin his life. Through the course of the film we’re introduced to a trigger happy ex-actor, a porn star with a drug problem, a wealthy couple intent on making films to promote celibacy, a drowning pig, and a Sasquatch-sized post-op played by Ron Perlman in drag.
Featuring a likeable cast, but not too much else, it opens in limited release this Friday.
Ok folks, here we go. Part II of the 2012 Fall Movie Preview. Today we’ll break down all the major releases on tap for the month of October, and the first week of November!

It got nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress – Melissa McCarthy), and made a number of year end top ten lists, including the American Film Institute’s, Entertainment Weekly’s, and The (title pending) Movie Podcast’s (Tanski’s #2).

Did you ever prejudge a movie, only to find out you were wrong?
You know, you see the trailers and the commercials or you read the reviews, and you think, “This movie looks terrible,” but then when you actually watch it you find yourself liking it and you have to admit it’s not all that bad?
Well, you don’t have to worry about that here, “Gulliver’s Travels” is every bit the steaming pile of crap you imagine it is.
