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.

 
Indie Feel Makes Lookout a Different Kind of Thriller

The Lookout is simply a different kind of thriller—one that has an indie feel to it, with lots of time spent on character development. For those who prefer the standard Hollywood genre thriller, it’s sure to disappoint.

Laughs and Lewdness Make the Cut in Blades

With its over-the-top, absurd storyline, Blades of Glory offers plenty of one-liners that will likely become as memorable as the lines in Napoleon Dynamite. The downside? Perverted jokes, sexual allusions, references to or portrayals of drinking, drugs, smoking, and homosexuality, and a barrage of slapstick violence.

 
Final “Rocky” a Pleasant Surprise and Fitting Sequel

Rocky’s back – although sweet Adrian is gone. And, although you’re probably bracing yourself for another bad sequel, as I was, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at this final episode in this series.

Hungry Hearts Seek Solace in Reign Over Me

The characters in Reign Over Me do not look heavenward for help, but the movie’s joy is in its story of old friends reunited—in what that friendship means for one man’s ability to face reality, and for the other’s realization of the blessings he’s already been given.

 
Bullets, Bodies and Betrayal Mark a Violent Shooter

Although fast-paced and high action, Shooter comes with plenty of warnings and its title should clue us in on what to expect: countless bullets, bodies that are beaten, bloodied, tortured, and killed, and entire villages subjected to genocide. And that's just for starters.

 
Last Mimzy Stuffed With Conflicting Spiritual Messages

The masterminds behind The Last Mimzy showcase a Hollywood brand of spirituality that’s not particularly subtle, as everything from Buddhism to astrology to new age philosophies get major screen time.

 
Be Warned: Premonition Goes Nowhere Slowly

In Premonition, the ambiguity and emotionless nature don't do actress Sandra Bullock any favors, as she seems to be walking through the film in the same perpetual daze as the audience is by watching it.

 
I Think I Love My Wife a Surprisingly Truthful Film

The film is extremely loose when it comes to language and sexual themes. If you can get past this, however, you’ll find that Chris Rock makes some insightful points, all within the context of excellent acting and direction.

Beauty, Heritage Span the Continents in Namesake

The Namesake, from Indian director Mira Nair, reminds us of a film axiom: Some of the best movies about the American experience have come from filmmakers born in other lands.

Dangerous Health Issues the Focus in "Fast Food Nation"

As with its cousin, “Super Size Me,” which focused on the dangerous health issues connected to fast food consumption, you don’t need to be a vegetarian to be horrified by “Fast Food Nation.” You may still become one, however, after seeing this.

Violent 300 a Perverse Form of Eye Candy

Filled with violent battle scenes, gory killings and some surprisingly explicit sex, 300 is a perverse form of eye candy. A war epic that arrives in the midst of the United States' ongoing war against Islamic radicalism, it offers, at best, only faint echoes of the current conflict.

 
Offensive "Borat" Addresses Stereotypes, Reveals Prejudices

"Borat" intends to offend, in order to reveal our deepest prejudices. The film also has a strong message about stereotypes and the subtle racism that still exists in our country. But to get there, we have to wade through a lot of nudity, foul language, scatology and crude humor.

More Talk, Less Truth Found in "Conversations"

"Conversations With God" is one man's true account of how he found answers from God, became a "spiritual messenger" and authored a successful book series that has sold over 7 million copies. After watching this film, Annabelle Robertson creates a fictional "conversation" of her own with the film's main character.

Sleuthing Is All in the Family in Zodiac

An R-rated film about an infamous serial killer is the first great “family film” of 2007. No, it’s not appropriate for anyone other than adults, but at its heart, Zodiac is about family values.

 
Raunchy Wild Hogs Belongs in the Slop Bucket

Wild Hogs is the story of four guys trying to escape from suburbia. In what’s essentially a less sophisticated City Slickers meets Easy Rider, it doesn’t take long for the humor to make its way directly to the slop bucket.

 
Turtles Are Mutated Once Again in TMNT

The year was actually 1984 when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were first invented. Now, rather inexplicably, they’ve been resurrected from their cinematic grave. Why? No doubt, to market more junk to another generation of unsuspecting kids and gullible parents.

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.

Family Bonds Extolled in The Astronaut Farmer

The Astronaut Farmer is a compelling case study on whether or not it’s really worth the risk to follow the big dreams. More than anything, it’s an interesting peek into the dynamics of something we don’t often see: a functional, loving, supportive family.
