    I'll admit the first one was a guilty pleasure that I actually enjoyed.

    Not sure why there needs to be a sequel, but I'll watch it

    Review: Found Footage Family Film 'Earth To Echo'|The Playlist

    All in all, "Earth to Echo" is passable family entertainment, neither unforgettable nor particularly bad. The kid actors are fairly convincing, even though they too seem to be under the strain of the found footage parameters (since, unlike in traditional narrative features, there's no way to "cut around" them), and the little robot is pretty cute. The fact that director Dave Green was able to shape a genre as inherently cold and gritty as found footage and turn it into something that caused my audience to audibly gasp and "awww," is a testament to his talents as a filmmaker. With the right script and free of aesthetic limitations, he could be a director that could attempt something in the spirit of a Steven Spielberg classic… and actually succeed. [C+]

    Only if it's watched on Father's Day.

    'Frozen' Writer/Director Jennifer Lee To Adapt Classic Novel 'A Wrinkle In Time' For Disney | The Playlist

    According to Variety, Lee (who previously co-wrote "Wreck-It Ralph") will be re-teaming with Disney for her adaptation of the beloved novel "A Wrinkle In Time." Madeleine L'Engle's 1962 book, apparently a favorite of the filmmaker's, sees four children traveling through the universe in search of their missing father, and was previously made as a 2003 TV Movie that aired on the Disney Channel. This new version has been in development at Disney for four years, with "Bridge To Terabitha" writer Jeff Stockwell previously hired to write, but Lee apparently pitched a new approach that has Disney execs excited (she could do worse than to take a leaf from Hope Larson's excellent recent graphic novel version).
    I remember loving this book as a kid, but I don't remember a single thing about it today.

    Review: Maze Runner gives a strong young cast plenty of room to shine

    I dunno...this has been percolating for a while(panels @ Nerd Hq two years in a row), and that may not mean anything more than a long post production...but still.

    And for those of you interested Dolphin Tale 2 got some nice reviews last week. Too lazy to find a link, but if you are looking for a family movie you could apparently do worse.
