Dove Approved for All Ages

For many generations now, Lego blocks have been a part of children's lives by building up their imagination and allowing them to recreate their fantasies through play.

Scott Pilgrim vs the World

August 13, 2010
"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" had a lot of potential. It has some very comical actors and actresses but the filmmaker's sense of humor is twisted. The story's about a twenty-two year old who falls in love with Ramona, and these two opposites are somehow attracted to one another. The whole story is [...]

Youth in Revolt

This film takes you back to those awkward days of high school and the famed last party of the year that seems to happen shortly before or after graduation. The one-on-one interactions between the characters was incredibly realistic-almost painfully so when members of the opposite sex talked. [...]
