** (out of four) Here's the rotten thing about destroying humongous mystical beings: Kill one, and everyone expects you to kill 'em all.   So after ousting the Kraken in “Clash of the Titans” (a movie that also had plenty of wrath), Perseus (ever-bland Sam Worthington) can't raise his son peacefully without his dad, Zeus (Liam Neeson), expecting Perseus to save the world again. That comes even before the betrayal of Zeus' backstabbing son Ares (Edgar Ramirez), who's such a jerk that even Hades (Ralph Fiennes)

Let's be honest: At this point, Netflix Instant is one of the only things getting us through this winter. Less than two weeks after its release date, 2 percent of the streaming service's users had seen the entire second season of "House of Cards. " I spent the better part of December and January re-watching "Frasier. " (Don't hate, "Frasier" is amazing.) So when it was revealed this week that "Dirty Dancing" was a new addition to our queue options, my reaction was somewhere along the lines of "yessssssssss omehgerrrrrd.

When I first saw James Cameron's "Ghosts of the Abyss" in 2003, it was at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry , in conjunction with a touring Titanic exhibit that told the story of the ship's legendary - and tragic - maiden voyage. I remember sitting in the Omnimax Theater and  marveling at the courage and tenacity shown by Cameron, the group of scientists he accompanied, and the Russian crew that ferried them to the site of the submerged wreck. Watching the film again - this time at home on the newly released blu-ray disc -...

** (out of four) You can't blame the gods for wanting to intervene in human affairs; the perfectly sculpted deities do nothing but sit around in the sky and watch the violent action on the ground. Zeus (Luke Evans), however, insists that law dictates the powerful folks upstairs must stay out of it unless the titans are unleashed, which assumedly happens right after the titans are remembered. Meanwhile, mortal men battle seemingly as a result of having absolutely nothing else to do. We can only wonder how much less fighting there would be if these warriors could just find some other...

For years, Wade Davis closely guarded his secret. The former NFL player feared the impact it would have in the locker room and front offices. The ex-Tennessee Titan, Washington Redskin and Seattle Seahawk didn't come out as gay until after his playing days were safely over. After all, he wanted to be known as an athlete, not a gay person. Today, Davis is better known as a speaker, activist, writer and educator. You can find him tirelessly raising awareness and support for LGBT rights, not cracking pads on the gridiron.

Sick of Dwight Howard trade rumors? Get ready for NFL free agency madness that could dwarf the rumors surrounding the big man. On Tuesday, NFL teams can start signing free agents. Did you hear that, Bears? The biggest catch, of course, is quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, has already visited Arizona and Denver. Reports suggest those two are the front-runner to land him, but Manning also is visiting the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday before free-agency begins at 3 p.m. But...

Carolina rookie quarterback Cam Newton has done something no other NFL quarterback has ever done. Not Peyton Manning. Not Tom Brady. Not Michael Vick. With three rushing touchdowns Sunday - his 11th, 12th and 13th this year - Newton broke the single-season record for quarterbacks set by Steve Grogan in 1976. Henceforth, let's call him Big Newton. Newton came into the league a question mark, but he's proved himself capable of playing QB in the NFL. Now, if only the Panthers could win a few more of these games.

There's an old saying that goes something like this: "You can't keep a good dog down. " Actually, that's a lie. But that's what it should be. Do not adjust your glasses or your monitor, folks, what you are seeing is indeed real. I'm back. After a couple of months shooting films in Hollywood, I have returned to Chicago and my RedEye roots. Actually, that's a lie too. The Hollywood part, not the RedEye part. And I'm back to doing what I do best. Predicting sporting events.

*1/2 (out of four) The time has come for Hollywood and Sam Worthington to shake hands, exchange pleasantries and go their separate ways. In “Terminator Salvation,” “Avatar,” “Clash of the Titans,” “The Debt” and the new thriller “Man on a Ledge,” Worthington has had ample time to prove his big-screen charisma. No dice. This guy isn't terrible, just bland. He brings as much to the table as Oliver Twist. In “Ledge,” Worthington plays … oh, who cares what his name is. He's the guy on the ledge, an ex-cop who's there...
