With “In Plain Sight” on USA and other movies being made about the Witness Protection Program, it was interesting to see a movie take on the topic with “Did You Hear About the Morgans?,” starring Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker as Paul and Meryl Morgan.
The Morgans are a couple living apart in New York City. Paul lives in a motel room while Meryl stays at their home. Sassy and successful Meryl runs a real estate company and really gets all the bang for her buck. Paul on the other hand works as head of another business, which isn’t clearly stated in the movie. › Continue reading

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. This young Viking is scrawny, unable to lift a “Viking” weapon, such as the axe, warhammer, or even a sword. 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
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.
However, she falls prey to a single moment alone on the ice that will forever alter her world.
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
Imagine a tree that is the size of the Empire State Building with the circumference of Times Square. Along with the huge size of the tree, bright and vivid colors will pierce your eyes. Every detail of this tree will pop off the screen, stamp your brain with greatness, and make you remember it forever.
The film “Avatar” starts out in a place called Pandora, which is a lush moon. Sigourney Weaver, who plays Grace in the film, acts as a biologist who is teaching Marines about all the unique plants, animals, and insects in this unknown place. Sam Worthington, who plays Jake in the movie, and another biologist named Norm, played by Joel Moore, get the privilege of becoming Navi, or natives of Pandora. They are all part of the Marines, and their main goal is to mine Pandora’s precious resources. › Continue reading
Jim Carey gives audiences a great portrayal of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday grouch, Ebenezer Scrooge, in the Disney Pixar film, “A Christmas Carol,” now in theaters. Carey’s performance in 2000’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” as the notorious mean one, Mr. Grinch, gave new life to the classic Dr. Seuss character and this year, Carey has done the same for Ebenezer Scrooge in “A Christmas Carol.” Dickens’ story of giving and greed jumps off the pages and onto the big screen with a big splash, thanks to Disney Pixar’s excellent production and casting.
Carey plays Ebenezer Scrooge, a cold-hearted miser concerned only with business matters, even with the Christmas spirit of giving and fellowship all around him.
On Christmas Eve, after grudgingly sending home his assistant, Bob Cratchit, the sullen Scrooge sulks alone in his home when the spirit of his partner Jacob Marley, dead seven years ago on that very night, pays him a visit. › Continue reading
A warm, sunny day, the perfect white dress, a cute church, and everything should be perfect for a wedding.
Unless, of course, you have a self conceited fiancé and a meteor with radioactive properties that squishes the bride flat. This is the case in Pixar’s Monsters vs. Aliens. › Continue reading
