The Personal History of David Copperfield
Movies
0   1   0   0   0
In theaters. This classic tale from the mind of Charles Dickens has seen its fair share of TV and film renditions. Some of them have been really good, some of them have been terrible. This one may be the best of the bunch. First and foremost, I want to give credit to the director, the studio, the casting director, and anyone else involved in the casting of this film. This is, as far as I can remember, the first ever wide-release film that doesn't worry about the race of the...

The One And Only Ivan

Streaming exclusively on Disney+. I would watch paint dry if it starred Bryan Cranston, Sam Rockwell, and Angelina Jolie. How do I know? Because I just did it. This is loosely based on the true story of a gorilla that loved to paint. I wish I could say that this is a really exciting, funny, and fun film, but the reality is, both my 8 and 10 year old daughters (who love animals), walked out while we were watching this because they got bored. I...

The Secret Garden

Streaming on Apple or VUDU. This is one of those stories that pops up as a feature film every generation. On one hand it makes a lot of sense because it is a story filled with beautiful images. On the other hand, the story is not nearly as great as the visuals and the two main characters are thoroughly unlikable. Mary is obnoxious, treats everyone with disrespect, and refuses to do what she is told. Colin is a whiny, defeated, brat. It makes zero sense that these two would ever become friends, and...

Trolls World Tour

Four years ago, I took my daughters, then 4 and 6, to see TROLLS. The music was great, the girls were mostly entertained, but the story was pretty bland. Last night, we had a home movie night and watched TROLLS WORLD TOUR. My girls are now 8 and 10, and the age difference made the difference. While the 8 year old enjoyed the movie for the most part, she hasn't shown any interest in watching it again even though she knows we can watch it as many times as we want to in 48 hours. The...

I Still Believe

If you know the story of Jeremy Camp, then you already know where this film is going. The great news is that, even if you do know, they did a fantastic job in making it compelling anyway. If you don't know anything about Jeremy Camp, his story will make you laugh, cry, and find hope in tragedy. This is from the same people that made I CAN ONLY IMAGINE. That was a great film, and this one is too. They manage to tell difficult and personal stories that feel very real, but not invasive. It is...

Onward
Movies
0   1   0   0   0
Disney/Pixar has an uncanny talent at taking very heavy subject matter and turning into an animated feature that is entertaining for the whole family and still stays true to the emotional depth of the circumstance the hero is in. Films like UP and INSIDE OUT are perfect examples of how they can take what seems to be an impossible task and make it work well. Now, we can add ONWARD to that list. My only negative comment about this movie is that it starts off a bit slow. However, after the first...

The Call Of The Wild

There is a saying in Hollywood, "never do a movie with kids or animals." Well, the good news for Harrison Ford is that he didn't have to work with any animals in this one. I know that sounds impossible, but it is true. The dog in this movie is 100% CGI. As far as I could tell, there wasn't a single real animal in this entire movie. I know this because the computer animations were so bad that it kept pulling me out of the story. All of the dogs moved in odd ways, or too fast,...

Sonic The Hedgehog

If you are a child of the 80's and 90's then Sonic The Hedgehog is a major character in your upbringing. That said, there were a lot of feelings about this movie long before its release date. Especially when the first trailer came out and the entire world revolted at the look of Sonic, forcing the director to make a public statement saying Sonic would be changed to look more like the original Sonic before the theatrical release. They did, and he does. As for the film, it is fun. It's not some great, comedic masterpiece,...

Dolittle

Oh, Universal Studios, what have you done? Not even a month ago you gave us all hairballs and forced naps when you released CATS. Now we have to play guess-the-country-where-Dolittle-grew-up because his accent changes literally in every scene, and we have to try and remember who is who because you thought it was a great idea for Dolittle to have 10 talking animals go on the adventure with him. (Plus two kids). Alas, it seems as though this movie was doomed from the start. It was plagued with rewrites, re-shoots, redraws, and missed release dates. In fact,...

Director Greta Gerwig put together a power-house group of women, and led them all to a finished product that is not just a great film for toady, but simply a great film. The production elements, the costumes, the chemistry of the cast, and the beautiful music all come together to create a special film. My only issue with it is that the pacing is slightly off for the first 30 minutes or so. It takes a minute to figure out the timeline jumps that are happening and who is who. Once you get used to the...
