Life as we Know it

October 8, 2010
This movie is at least partially targeted toward parents, the sleep-deprived teachers and child guardians who deal with potty issues, feeding time, crying and also the rewards that pop up from time to time. The film features some funny moments including one in which Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) [...]

The Fourth Kind

November 6, 2009
This movie is basically about alien abductions but unfortunately some violence is included which is a bit strong for family viewing. The setting is in Nome, Alaska, and in this remote area Dr. Abigail Tyler (Milla Jovovich) deals with the strange happenings and her video tapes of patients who have [...]

Because I Said So

February 2, 2007
Diane Keaton has some genuinely funny moments in this film. She plays her role to perfection as the over-protective and interfering mom with a big heart. The film is pretty well directed and the story of the mother trying to find a prospective husband for her daughter, so she doesn't end up like [...]

Slither

March 31, 2006
In this campy take on the aliens/slasher film genre, we are exposed to every degree of gore and language you can imagine. I was almost looking forward to watching a comedic variation of some of the gore fests I have had the unfortunate privilege of reviewing lately. Well, language and blood made [...]

White Noise

January 7, 2005
After the last two “scary” movies that arrived in theatres (darkness, the grudge), it was nice to view a movie that actually instilled some fear in me. White Noise was a very good movie, I was very impressed with the writing. It was nice how they didn’t just throw the viewers into the whole [...]
