There is such a thing as trying so hard to please everyone, that you end up not reaching anyone with your efforts.

The Quiet

I was curious as to why there was only one other person in the theatre with me to view "The Quiet" until I sat through it. The incestuous theme creates a totally depressing atmosphere.

I thought the film was [...]

"The Ballad of Jack and Rose" is a huge waste of time and money. It is very disjointed and the only likeable character in the film, Marty [...]

A great little sequel to a popular children's film/book. It has great positive outlooks on life, and shows the power and importance of friendship. Hopefully this will find it's way to video soon so that it can reach a larger population. Well done, especially in the [...]
