Marshall

October 13, 2017
A decade before Thurgood Marshall won Brown v. Board of Education, he was a NAACP lawyer popping up into towns around the nation and defending people of color wrongfully accused of crimes. When he came into town, he really did pop with a fearless swagger and a biting humor. At least, that is how [...]

Big Hero 6

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Big Hero 6" is ingenious, imaginative, action-packed, and funny! The plot revolves around a character named Hiro and the large robot Baymax, a robot that had the kids in the screening audience laughing with delight on more than one occasion. In fact, the adults were laughing as well. Baymax does [...]

Surrogates

September 25, 2009
This is a dark picture, set in a dreary world of earth's possible future. People live vicariously through the surrogates while they remain in the comfort of their homes. Considering how much some people stay at a computer screen, it is not a plot impossible to imagine. Bruce Willis stars as an FBI [...]

W.

October 17, 2008
Although this is a comedy I did not find much humor in the entire film. There is under age drinking, a hazing at a college frat house and some political understatements. I am not quite sure who would really want to see this movie. At times it makes our present President look like a complete idiot [...]

Becoming Jane

August 10, 2007
Starring Anne Hathaway, the film examines the effect that Jane Austen’s own romances had on her literary works. While the movie at times does seem to parody some of the themes contained in Jane Austen’s books, the film is delightfully thoughtful and funny. Anne Hathaway portrays Jane Austen’s [...]

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 [...]

The Longest Yard

May 27, 2005
It seems to me that remakes are never quite as good as the originals. This certainly holds true with The Longest Yard. The plot and storyline are very similar but with some updating. The cast of prison guards and inmates are bigger, stronger, and meaner in the remake. It seems like every one of [...]
