Vikings have stubbornness issues. You would know this if you listened to Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) in “How to Train Your Dragon,” a new computer-animated movie by Dreamworks.

His father, Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), is ashamed of him because Hiccup can’t even be a proper Viking and is always getting into mischief while trying to help. As he attempts to become a Viking and kill his first dragon, he instead befriends one. › Continue reading
Fall in love with fairy tales again, but in a slightly more twisted way. You ever wonder what would happen in the Frog Prince fairy tale when someone besides a princess kissed the frog? Well, in Disney’s “Princess and the Frog,” you find out.
This animated film is set in jazz-era New Orleans, when voodoo practices were more common and, in this tale, play a vital part in the characters’ experiences.
Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) is a hardworking young African-American woman who is all work and no play, which makes her dull to her friends. But it is all because she wants to own her own restaurant, the one she dreamed of having and owning with her dad, who passed away years ago. › Continue reading
“2012” is an intense film loosely based on the idea that the world will end in the year 2012. Actor John Cusack stars in this intense movie as a divorced father, Jackson, who stumbles across the fact that the world is starting to crumble.
Other cast members include Adrian Helmsley, who plays a brilliant scientist who, with the help of a friend, discovers the Earth Crust Displacement theory. This theory states that the sun has been emitting stronger and stronger rays, causing the earth to start to crumble in on itself. He brings the report showing proof of the ECD theory to the attention of members of the American government in 2010. The government responds by starting to take action to save humanity and many of Earth’s animals–while the general populace has no clue about what might be their impending doom. › Continue reading
Though a romantic movie, “Ice Castles” is anything but just a cliché.
Meet Alexis (Taylor Firth) who makes skating on ice beautiful as she reaches for the top, for the gold.

Alexis is a aspiring skater who has learned all of her skills on the pond by her home. She doesn’t skate for competition, but for the love she has of the sport. She has a boyfriend, Nick (Rob Mayes), lives with her dad (Tom Skerritt), and enjoys her life. › Continue reading
While an older movie, Hayao Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away” is an enchanting tale about a ten-year-old girl named Chihiro, who enters a world of mystical, magical things that are not always what they seem. She must learn to become independent and also how to handle more adult situations.
Chihiro’s parents are moving and, like most children, she is upset, sullen and completely against the idea. Her father takes a wrong turn that leads them to what appears to be an abandoned amusement park. Thinking there is no harm, they explore. Chihiro fights to get her parents to leave, but it’s a no go; her parents start to gorge themselves on some food at a stand that is so delicious that they can’t stop eating. › Continue reading
The recent film “Where the Wild Things Are”, directed by Spike Jonze, spins off of Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book by the same title, and stretches it out to the point where the film becomes its own story while remaining true to the original.
Critics and viewers, however, note that, whereas the book is more light-hearted, the film is dark and rather melancholic.
For those who are familiar with neither book nor film, the story is about a young boy named Max, who misbehaves, is punished, and so runs away from home to where the Wild Things are. (In the book, the running is done solely in the boy’s imagination, whereas in the film he literally runs away before making his way to the imaginary land of the Wild Things.)
