Home Again

September 8, 2017
I didn't have high expectations for this one, but I did expect Home Again to to be a fun, light and easy story. And it’s well-staged. Every scene was like turning the pages of a Sunset magazine, all the way down to the place settings. Every character is perfectly pretty—and likable. But [...]

Passengers

December 21, 2016
"Passengers" is a fascinating movie that works especially well due to its lead actors, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Left in other actor's hands, it probably doesn't hold the audience's attention as well. Lawrence and Pratt have chemistry in this "Titanic"-like story, with the plot taking [...]

Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue

September 21, 2010

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is a delightful movie. It feeds the imagination with great animation, backgrounds, characters and songs, and it somehow manages to capture the innocence of childhood. Lizzie, age nine, is raised by her father who is a very busy, serious-minded man. No explanation is given as to what happened [...]

Blood Diamond

December 8, 2006
This film is rated R for strong violence and the MPAA did not make a mistake in the rating! Children are shot, and also shoot others, blood is shed in many scenes, explosions mightily erupt, people burn, and since the movie is virtually about the violence in Africa, the slower paced scenes do not [...]

The Queen

November 10, 2006
We look at celebrities and politicians differently, so that when a tragedy happens our expectations of their reaction never takes in their personal feelings. This is an intriguing drama and part documentary of the Royal family in a very difficult time. It makes everyone stop and think about what [...]

Laws Of Attraction

April 30, 2004
In this cute but forgettable film, divorce is not glamorized or trivialized. It is presented as the only thing left when a husband and wife are unwilling to do all that they can to make a marriage work. There is quite a bit of bad language, including an s-word and several occurrences of profanity, [...]
