I knew I was going to enjoy this film from the beginning. The DreamWorks company logo comes up and shows the young boy fishing as he sits on the moon. Suddenly a space ship comes along and sucks him up! There was a lot of laughter at the screening I attended of this movie. There are great [...]

Street Kings

April 11, 2008
This is a story about dirty cops. The only question is: who is dirty and who isn't because appearances can be deceiving. The one good cop, Tom Ludlow (Keanu Reeves), is not above taking the law into his hands if it means getting rid of the dirt and grime of the streets. This movie is based in stark [...]

Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This film haunted me for days. Ms. Garland was an exceptional talent, yet she was controlled by an overbearing mother, several self-serving lovers, including a husband who turned out to be gay, and a domineering studio head who got her hooked on prescription drugs. Her life became a living [...]

101 Dalmatians (Live Action) 1996

December 17, 1996

Dove Approved for All Ages

Disney's live action recreation of its own 1961 animated classic. The original is paced just a wee bit slower, giving it a gentler quality than most members of Generation X are used to, but the live action version is nearly as appealing. A charming fantasy about two people meeting, because their [...]
