Oceans (2009) - Steven Greydanus

Nature doc lovers will meet plenty of old friends in the Disney film Oceans: a mother humpback whale lifting her calf to the surface for a breath of air; newly emerged turtle hatchlings herky-jerking over the expanse of sand toward the sea while swooping frigatebirds pick them off at their leisure; orcas surging alarmingly out of the surf to snatch fur seals from the shallows.  Read more...

The Rite Roundup - Elizabeth Scalia

It’s not on my “must see” list, but then again, I am a crank who doesn’t like going to the movies, anyway (although True Grit did lure me), but The Rite opens today and it seems many people are aching to explore a theme of exorcism, so here is a round-up of sorts.  Read more...

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson - Sean Fitzpatrick

The strangest thing about The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is that it is not strange at all. It is a very common case of "the hard law of life which lies at the root of religion."  Read more...

To Kill Still Kills - Thomas Hibbs

Based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, with an impeccable script from Horton Foote, a mesmerizing musical score, and many fine performances, To Kill a Mockingbird is a great American film, one that never fails to move and uplift even after many viewings. A new DVD version of the film makes it all the more attractive.  Read more...

Compelling and beautiful, this sort of love story is no fairy tale.  Read more...

A disgusting portrait of an 'artist' - Rex Murphy

A Good Writer is Hard to Find - RONALD WEBER

A Lot of Sound, No Music - Anthony Esolen

A Passion of Violence and Love - Zenit

On the set much more happened than what is known; much will remain in the secret of consciences: conversions, apparitions of mysterious personages, extraordinary explosions of energy, enigmatic figures who knelt down as the extraordinary Caviezel-Jesus passed by, even two flashes of lightning, one of which struck the cross, but did not hurt anyone.  Read more...
