"Dolphin Tale 2": unnecessary sequel still makes a small, sweet splash

Published Sept. 14, 2014

It's hard to imagine there was much clamoring for a sequel to "Dolphin Tale." The first film was a modest early fall success back in 2011, but even then, Winter the dolphin's story was already fairly thin dramatic material, serving as little more than a nice pleasant aside.

This year's lineup is no less spectacular, bringing in a diverse group of accomplished people in the business to share their film expertise and their love of movies.


"The Trip to Italy" is a welcome holiday from the early fall's flops

Published Sept. 3, 2014

"It feels kind of weird doing something for a second time," star Steve Coogan ponders aloud before lamenting the inherently repetitive nature, expectations and diminished returns of sequels. Luckily, that's not the case here with "The Trip to Italy," a worthy follow-up to its hilarious and surprisingly reflective 2010 predecessor.
