A crippled hero rises to save his city one last time. A team of scientists seeking God in the depths of space instead discover pure evil. A fairy tale princess becomes a warrior and saves herself. A foul-mouthed teddy bear plays the white trash name game. This summer's selection of movie releases were filled with triumphant, terrifying, inspiring and hilarious moments.
The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises obliterated the popular myth that the superhero action genre had run its course. Ted proved that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is even funnier when he doesn't have to censor himself. Moonrise Kindom cemented Wes Anderson as the indie king of whimsical, witty comedies with a heart. Each of these movies were fantastic in their own ways, but how do they stack up against each other? Help us rate the Top 10 Best Movies of the 2012 summer movie season.

The young boy played by C.J. Adams at the center of writer-director Peter Hedges' (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?) new movie in theaters, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, views life a bit differently from other children, but that's not too surprising considering he was wished into existence by a desperate couple — played by Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton — longing for a child.
We recently got a chance to chat with Garner about the movie and she said that, though she hasn't had any fertility issues herself, "a ton" of her friends have so it was easy to put herself in their shoes and imagine what it would be like. Garner has three children of her own with husband Ben Affleck and offered this advice to parents who worry about their children's odd behavior: "Kids are kids and they're allowed to be funky and they're allowed to have their eccentricities." She also confessed that she was odd in her own way as a child, basically living in a cardboard box in her basement because she "needed a spot" of her own, "a place to go and make up stories." more about the movie >> Posted 08.16.12 by BrentJS
Disney's upcoming fable The Odd Life of Timothy Green may be one of the more unusual family movies the studio has released in recent memory, but star Joel Edgerton assured Reelz that the movie is not unlike some of the classic movies of yesteryear.
The Odd Life really harkens back to, like, magic, real movies like E.T., Big and It's a Wonderful Life. It's about a couple who have everything but the thing that they most want which is to have a child. The universe kind of provides that child for them in the form of this boy who grows out of the garden.
While the first trailer of The Odd Life was released a year ago, the cast have not forgotten about how well they got along together on-set. Edgerton admitted that his co-star Jennifer Garner was one of the nicest people that he'd worked with, to which Garner responded that she couldn't "think of anyone" that she'd rather have in that role other than Edgerton. We're sure she thinks the same of C.J. Adams, who plays Timothy in the movie. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.14.12 by Ryan
With his recent success in Warrior and the highly anticipated remake of The Great Gatsby in the making, Joel Edgerton can now add screenwriting to his list of accomplishments. Edgerton just sold a spec script (One Night Stand) to New Regency.
The movie is said to be a realistic drama following a man and woman after a one night stand, with some necessary comic relief. Although there is no talk of Edgerton himself starring in the movie, he plans to be the executive producer.
Besides Warrior, Edgerton also starred in the horror mystery The Thing in 2011 and just completed The Odd Life of Timothy Green alongside Jennifer Garner. Posted 01.19.12 by reelz
Disney has released the first trailer for its upcoming modern-day fable, The Odd Life of Timothy Green. Considering the movie won't be released until next summer, audiences will have plenty of time to digest the movie's fantastical storyline, based on an idea by Disney principal Ahmet Zappa, which concerns a couple who can't conceive a child but end up with one after burying a box of hopes of what their child might be in their back yard. It sounds considerably less weird in the movie's official synopsis.
