Many years ago, some of us watched a charming cartoon called "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" with our children.

For Colored Girls

This film targets African American women and indeed the audience I screened the film with was made up of primarily women. It is a story that they will best relate to. There are several subplots which make up the whole of the film. In one story Whoopi Goldberg plays a religious fanatic who yells, [...]

"Everyone's Hero" is an animated family film of the highest caliber. It is an enjoyable tale with many positive themes: a loving intact family, good reliable friends, goal setting, never giving up, and a belief in yourself.

This story based around the family patriarch passing away. The dysfunctional family gets together, with all their problems, for the funeral. I give this movie a 12+ because of some of the content in the story, one brother is having an affair, cousin who drinks and smokes, the feelings of the mom, [...]

Good Fences

December 16, 2003
“Good Fences” may find the appeal of adults, but it is not appropriate for Children. There are far too many counts of sexual innuendos and situations, including language and nudity. Also, even though language in some points is creatively used (for example: “Your people are ignorant chimps [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Knowing the mindset of today’s filmmakers, I expected this remake to be more like the coarse “Cannonball Run” than the non-offensive “Mad World.” How surprised and pleased I was that I finally found a comedy that made me laugh so hard, I nearly doubled over. I simply can’t remember the [...]
