Alex Pettyfer stars in the remake of the 1981 Brooke Shields film. The only thing the abysmal “Endless Love” had going for it when it was released in 1981 was the Oscar-nominated song of the same name performed by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross. The remake doesn’t even have the song. The new “Endless Love” is a sanitized version of the original that clings to the worst elements.
‘How to Train Your Dragon’
Satisfying both kids and adults isn’t easy, but this animated adventure – about an 11-year-old Viking who must train a dragon – hits the mark dead-on with the right mix of silly and serious. Toss in dazzling computer-generated animation and a perfect score by composer John Powell, and this is the best work from DreamWorks animation since “Shrek” in 2001. The sequel opens in June.
The special edition Blu-ray combo pack includes “The Making of How to Train Your Dragon: Finding the Story” and “Ultimate Book of Dragons.”
