Rescue Dawn - Herzog’s Birthday Present to America

Opening July 4, Werner Herzog’s Rescue Dawn is a celebration of America and the spirit that motivates our servicemen. But like a great celebration that goes on a little too long, it has a few lulls, some uncomfortable silences and certain excesses.

Giants Predecessor an Inspiring, Worthy Effort

Flywheel is actually the first movie made by Kendrick and the now-famous team at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. “Facing the Giants,” their second cinematic effort, created an unprecedented stir as “the little Christian film that could.”

Life-Changing Faith on Display in Amazing Grace

Besides being one of the most well-known hymns, Amazing Grace is also an amazing story - a reminder that believers are called to persevere through trials, and that we sometimes reap rewards in this life as well as the next.

Top-Notch Humor, Animation Mark Shrek the Third

With cleverly-written, well-voiced, all-star humor and impeccable animation, Shrek the Third is marred only by a few typical Hollywood worldview elements and some scatological humor.

Ocean's Thirteen and the "Enormity of Success"

Director Steven Soderbergh’s latest film is not an “enormity of success,” but it is disappointing. An outrage? Not really, but that’s the disappointing aspect of Ocean’s Thirteen: It’s hard to care about it much at all.

Tired of filthy stand-up? Think Christians can’t have fun? Think again – and take a gander at Thou Shalt Laugh 2, the hilarious sequel to Thou Shalt Laugh, a top-selling comedy DVD released last year.

Ineffective and Corrupt Healthcare Exposed in Sicko

Michael Moore makes a devastating point with his newest movie. He shows us that the American healthcare system has become inaccessible, ineffective and frighteningly corrupt.

Ratatouille an Unexpected Delight for Kids and Adults

Armed with loads of life lessons (and thankfully, not presented in a cloying, heavy-handed manner) and a clever script, Ratatouille has all the right ingredients to delight—even if resourceful rats aren’t usually your speed.

Even Fruitcake More Enjoyable Than Deck the Halls

The hare-brained premise in Deck the Halls is neither heartwarming, particularly original, or funny - three essential components for a holiday comedy. To provide further insight into just how horrible it is, let’s just say it almost makes Christmas Vacation or A Christmas Story seem Oscar-worthy in comparison.

Chuck and Larry Touts Gay Family Values

Under the guise of comedy, Universal Pictures and Director Dennis Dugan are now bringing audiences two hours and twenty minutes’ worth of gay party-line preaching in the form of I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.

Nothing Funny About The Wendell Baker Story

Even the multitude of DVD extras adds little to this would-be slacker film, which is an exercise in patience from beginning to end. Aside from a few scenes that might make you smile, there’s nothing funny about this comedy at all.

Despite Flaws, Spider-Man 3 Works Hard to Amaze

You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking to be wowed by heretofore unseen action sequences in Spider-Man 3. But if it's more of the poignant storytelling of the first two films that you want, you may be dissatisfied.

License to Wed a Bad Endorsement for Marriage

License to Wed only gets more ridiculous as the minutes tick by, leaving you wonder why a film so bad would be green-lighted in the first place. It’s also a horrible endorsement for marriage and ministers alike, as neither are portrayed in a flattering light.

Cheadle Keeps it Real and Raw in Talk to Me

In Talk to Me, Don Cheadle’s character’s slogan is “keep it real.” And while many critics are crying for “realness” in movies, I’m hoping the pendulum is allowed to swing back to the middle with realness that doesn’t barrage with clutter (sex, violence, language, nudity) that’s hard to erase.

Life After War Explored in Home of the Brave

Home of the Brave is not a film about whether we should be in Iraq or not. It’s about what is happening to those who were. And despite its many shortcomings, that’s always worth seeing—especially for those of us back home, who have no clue.

Robinsons Inspires Creativity, Encourages Individuality

Meet the Robinsons not only inspires Walt Disney-type creativity and encourages individuality, but it also addresses the issue of rejection - head on - in a most sensitive and compelling way.

Costner Dances with Outrageousness in Mr. Brooks

The creepy new Kevin Costner flick, Mr. Brooks, is played out in a way that dances on the line between terrifying believability and over-the-top, almost comic-book-like-splatter film outrageousness. Consider yourself warned.

Invisible Looks More Like a TV Drama

Together with screenwriters Mick Davis and Christine Roum, director David S. Goyer has, however unwittingly, created more of a CW television drama than the ghostly thriller The Invisible has been promoted as.

Transformers Goes for Style over Substance

Transformers proves yet again that a movie needs just a little bit more that mind-numbing special effects to be any good. Lack of substance, however, will not prevent this movie from making the studio a big pile of cash this summer.

Outlandish Reaping an Unholy Mess

An outlandish thriller that uses the 10 plagues of “Exodus” as a modern-day gimmick to serve its own wacky ideas about God, the devil and the fate of humanity, he Reaping struggles to build any sense of suspense before delivering up a whopper of an ending that will generate more chuckles than chills.
