Style: Friday movie reviews

Yes, after 20 years, the aliens we repelled in Independence Day have regrouped. But since the makers of Independence Day: Resurgence declined to screen the movie in advance for the press we can’t tell you much about it. Except (spoiler alert) Will Smith isn’t in it. And there are probably explosions.

MOVIE REVIEW: Same fish story, different tank in 'Finding Dory'

posted: 06/17/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

Pixar, the former boutique animation studio that could, began churning out modern kids masterpieces beginning in 1995 with Toy Story. In the 21 years since they started making full-length films, the studio has made 17 features. Included in that list are five sequels of their previous hits, including the other two Toy Story films (widely held as some of the studio's best work), Cars 2, Monsters University and now, Finding Dory, the sequel to one of the studio's least surprising entries, Finding Nemo. As good as Pixar's overall track record has been, the sequels, short of the Toy Story pair, have fared somewhat less well.

Warcraft conjuring run at top spot

posted: 06/17/2016 1:46 a.m. Discuss

LOS ANGELES -- Though Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema's The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Case ghosted all of its competition at last weekend's box office, all eyes are on the performance of Universal/Legendary's Warcraft. Though the video game adaptation grossed only a modest sum in the U.S and Canada, given its hefty production budget, the picture's international numbers wildly made up for it.

COMMENTARY: Warcraft fan: Film lacks actual magic

posted: 06/17/2016 1:45 a.m. Discuss

If you've spent time running endgame content in Blizzard's World of Warcraft, you're familiar with the dreaded raid wipe. During these large-scale encounters, parties of multiple players fall victim to poor execution, bad timing and a lack of coordination. Frustration sets in, petty bickering ensues, and you're left wondering who to blame. But, in the end, the failure is a collective one.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: My friend collects all kinds of figures of angels -- porcelain, plastic, crystal, you name it. But when I asked her if she actually believes in angels, she said she wasn't sure. However, she went on to say that she thinks these figures will bring her good luck. Will they?
