Family Movie Review: The Mighty Macs

Full disclosure: The Mrs. is a Mighty Mac. Okay, not exactly. But she is currently attending Immaculata University, formerly College. Oh man, could you imagine her playing competitive basketball? Ha! Lemme stew on that for a minute… Okay, fun’s over. Not really though because The Mighty Macs movie is a […]

Family Movie Review: Dolphin Tale

Stories of inspiration, hope, and perseverance when combined with the words family + movie do, generally, turn me off more than a reality TV show featuring b-list celebs from other reality TV shows.  And heaven knows there are a lot of those going around. Dolphin Tale staring Harry Connick Jr, […]

TV Movie Review – Game Time: Tackling the Past

The only movies that have made me cry – really sob – are Rudy and Brian’s Song. Sports movies, both of them. And I hate Notre Dame, and am not particularly fond of the Chicago Bears! But themes of struggle, camaraderie, & impossible odds mixed with the violent beauty of […]

TV Movie Review: Who Is Simon Miller?

Who Is Simon Miller?, airing on NBC this Saturday August 6th at 8pm ET/7pm CT, is billed as a family movie. And it is. Just not for my young family. My girls, ages 7 and 4, cowered in fear during the animated Puss in Boots movie trailer before a viewing […]

A Classic Reborn: Winnie the Pooh 2011 Movie Review

My biggest kid’s media pet peeve? The modernization of classics. See: Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears, The Smurfs. [Groan]. The list goes on and on.  Hey Hollywood, don’t turn my childhood memories into shticky sight gags, fart jokes, and glossy computer animation. Just don’t. Here’s where I compliment Disney. Take notice. […]

Kid’s Movie Mini Review: Born To Be Wild IMAX 3D

BORN TO BE WILD IMAX 3D Born To Be Wild in IMAX 3D is a touching document of love, life and, well, death (those last two do walk arm-in-arm, no?).  Fear not parental units, this story of devotion, purpose and maxed-out adorable animal cuteness is a supremely happy one.  The […]

Harry Potter Deathly Hallows – New Trailer Sends Chills

We visited Hogwarts in Orlando a couple weeks back. Thankfully, that experience wasn’t nearly as frightening as the scene set in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film.  Check out the latest spine-tingling trailer:

Movie Review: Babies

The trailer for BABIES is impossibly cute.  If you’re not smiling after a goat steals a sip from a baby’s bathtub or when that same baby attempts horizontal jumping jacks, you’re probably a heartless bastard. But can an adorable 2-minutes be extrapolated into a 80-minute film? Sorta. The low hanging […]
