Now You See Me 2

June 10, 2016
For those of you who remember the first film in this series, you are in for much of the same deceptions, distractions and misdirection that you saw previously. The plot continues one year from the previous film's conclusion and features the story of the magicians knows as the Four Horsemen. A new [...]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

March 25, 2016
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is a dark superhero-comic book movie, whatever you would choose to call it. Batman (Ben Affleck) is a dark, brooding, masked vigilante in this picture. Many fans expressed a lot of anger when Ben Affleck was cast in this role but, to his credit, he does a good [...]

The plot features Blu and Jewel taking a trip to the Amazon where they find Jewel's father and an old [...]

30 Minutes or Less

August 12, 2011
I had someone who saw this movie before I did tell me, "There is a lot of profanity in it, almost every other word." They were not exaggerating by much. There IS a lot of profanity in it. So much of it that I quit counting after a while. It is throughout the entire movie. I don't usually like [...]

Rio

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Rio" is a remarkable visually breath-taking adventure with vivid colors and plenty of action. There is some humor too that the adults will appreciate along with the kids. A lively opening sequence kicks it off with a peppy song about Rio and a bird's tail shaking to the rhythm. Then we are [...]

The Social Network

October 1, 2010
This movie is clever in spots. I will give it that. Clever dialog and intelligent writing results in some laughs for the audience. The audience I screened it with the day before opening day laughed heartily on more than one occasion. In one case, Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), notices an [...]
