The Rookie
Rating:
  G
Actors:  Dennis Quaid, Rachel Griffiths, Angus T. Jones
Director:  John Lee Hancock
Comments:  Quaid (Jim Morris) is brilliant as the husband, father, teacher, and coach who put others first, followed his dream and became a hero.  Angus T. Jones (Hunter Morris) is perfectly cast as the adorable son who steals several scenes in the movie.  The precious father/son moments Jim shares with Hunter on and off the field are tender, affirming and (at times) touching reminders of the hard times Jim had growing up, relating to and communicating with his own dad.

Tuck Everlasting
Rating:
  PG
Actors:  William Hurt, Ben Kingsley, Sissy Spacek, Jonathan Jackson, Alexis Bledel
Director:  Jay Russell
Comments:  From the director of My Dog Skip comes another classic your family will treasure!  Jay Russell captures a beautiful period romance/adventure taken from a children's classic that all ages will enjoy and relate to.  I enjoyed the tender family moments, precious "first love" kisses, profound statements about life and death, and a moral message that resonates with a biblical one--live your life to its fullest and enjoy every minute you have!

We Were Soldiers
Rating:  R
Actors:  Mel Gibson, Madeleine Stowe, Sam Elliott, Greg Kinnear, Chris Klein, Josh Daugherty, Barry Pepper
Director:  Randall Wallace
Comments:   Moving scenes show the Americans and Vietnamese battling, praying and strategizing.  Gibson embodies the leadership of Lt. Col. Hal Moore in every aspect, including his spiritual conflicts and family-man side, which is rarely seen in war movies these days.  Here's a man who prays with his men before going into battle, promises them he will bring them all home, dead or alive, and weeps at the loss of those who give their lives for their country.
