Jurassic Park 3D

April 5, 2013
"Jurassic Park 3D" is a re-release of the original movie that was "enhanced" with 3D imaging. I put the word "enhanced" in quotes because it was obviously an after effect. In fact, a boy in the audience asked his mother half-way through if there were going to be any 3D parts. The central film [...]

Needless to say, Dr. Pincus is quite lonely and miserable after years of giving people the cold shoulder so as not to encourage conversation. When Dr. [...]

Spider-Man

May 3, 2002
Although the scene is often filled with fighting, most of the violence is neither graphic nor gory. However, a few moments in the climatic battle may be more graphic than necessary as Spiderman takes a brutal beating. There are two uses of "Jesus" as an exclamation, and several mild obscenities and [...]
