The holidays are a wonderful and fun time to go shopping. But, while you are out buying presents for your family members, especially the kids, it is important to read the warning labels for age-appropriate toys, small parts, and other things that may be harmful. This also includes the noise level that a toy registers.
A local company’s toys have won several awards this year including “Best Tech Toy” from Consumer Report but this toy isn’t something loud and battery operated — it’s a book, puzzle or wall poster.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Every year about this time, millions of turkeys are fattened up so American households can chow them down. But in "Free Birds," two brave turkeys make it their mission to travel back in time and get their breed off the Thanksgiving menu.
Comic book movies are increasingly, like Sandra Bullock in "Gravity," lost in space.
Lasers are often used in medical practices and engineering, but a new company in Tempe is making lasers available for all people to create any number of unique gift ideas or personalized home products.
The obsession began somewhere around the same time I got my first pair of Underoos.
Not all costumes are created equal, and there aren’t many as elaborate or amazing as those on display in “The Lion King,” on stage at ASU Gammage through Nov. 17. The magnificent costumes depict a variety of life in the African jungle — the sleek leopard, the leaping antelope, the lumbering elephant and the roaring lion — and each one is more fantastic than the last, especially when they parade down the aisles in the opening sequence of “The Circle of Life.”
Dear Claudia: I am ready to make some major renovations to my house; I want to get it ready for the holidays. Do you have a suggestion on how to select the right contractor for the project?
Floating untethered in space like Sandra Bullock in “Gravity” is no one’s idea of a good time, but going to the Earth and Space Exploration Day at ASU just might be. This annual fall event offers a diverse line-up of activities and experiences for the would-be astronaut or budding scientist, including 3-D astronomy shows, panning for gold, hands-on meteorite displays, a replica of the Curiosity rover and a field trip to Tempe Butte.
Alfonso Cuarón’s “Gravity” just might have the most horrifying premise in all of movies. There are several other strong contenders like “Buried,” in which Ryan Reynolds was trapped in a coffin underground, and “127 Hours,” where James Franco was stuck between a rock and a hard place. But honestly, what’s scarier than being stranded in space with limited air and no communication with Earth? Going to outer space is in itself a fairly scary thought. The notion of anything going wrong up there is the worst nightmare imaginable. As the tagline to “Alien” says, in space no one can hear you scream.
In an age when we're able to consume content so many different ways — and that's a good thing, mostly — let's declare right now that there's only one truly correct way to experience "Gravity," Alfonso Cuaron's thrilling new space film.
Tom Hanks didn’t know where the cameras were.
It’s been 75 years since Dorothy clicked her sparkling ruby heels together and wished to go home, and now you can see her dazzling red kicks and the zany world of Oz like never before.
Is Morgan Spurlock selling out?
The 1980s had New Kids on the Block; the '90s had the Backstreet Boys; and now boy bands are resurgent again with British group-of-the-moment One Direction, currently a chart-topping global pop phenom. While hardly a very incisive look at the band or its five individual singers — who are barely old enough to even have personal histories — Morgan Spurlock's documentary "One Direction: This Is Us" should score big with kids.
What’s a hulking vampire to do without moody mortals in distress and with no more computer-enhanced battles to wage in the forest?

The Chamber's 3D NETWORx celebrated the instillation of their group with a ribbon cutting at the Chamber office.
On the movie poster for “Planes’” and in a number of its advertisements is the tagline “From Above the World of Cars,” with the latter three words are carried over into the film’s title sequence. The goal, of course, is to link the film with Pixar’s popular “Cars” movies and equate that Pixar brand quality with its skyward brethren.
On and off screen, it's been a bruising summer for Hollywood.
The Legends Entertainment District, a first-of-its-kind joint venture between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Phoenix Suns, announced a new partnership with Ram and Dodge. The partnership features a custom 3-D super graphic of the new Ram 1500 truck as well as a static super graphic featuring the Dodge Dart.
Time flies when you're not wondering about the welfare of the Smurfs, those diminutive, animated blue-skinned forest-dwellers. Turns out they've been just fine since their 2011 big-screen outing, but there's trouble brewing in their new adventure-comedy that will require their curious blend of wide-eyed optimism and goofy enthusiasm to peacefully resolve.
The waka-waka chorus of Pac-Man munching and the upbeat du-du-du-du backdrop to Mario’s adventure drown out hushed voices and softly padding footsteps.
Even though “The Great Gatsby” has gotten the movie treatment several times in the past, no film adaptation has ever really stood out as the definitive version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s celebrated novel. Director Baz Luhrmann’s film is certainly the most visually arresting interpretation of “The Great Gatsby” ever produced. Catherine Martin, who previous worked with Luhrmann on “Moulin Rouge,” “Romeo + Juliet,” and “Australia,” deserves multiple Oscar nominations for her hyper sets and eye-popping costumes. As wonderful as Luhrmann’s “Great Gatsby” is to look at, the enchanting visuals are also ironically the movie’s downfall. In the midst of the art direction, costumes, and music, the story and characters that made Fitzgerald’s book a classic become a mere afterthought.
