I recently watched both Tangled* and Maleficent* for the first time, and I was absolutely enchanted by both! Tangled is a feat of pure Disney magic, easily one of the best “Disney Princess” movies I’ve ever seen, and hilarious to boot. As for Maleficent… talk about a powerful film that turned an old and, quite frankly, two-dimensional story on its head! The odd thing about these movies, however, is that our … Read More Gothel and Maleficent: A Study in Contrasts
Oh my, what a weekend of fun and cuteness! My sister had her baby last Monday, and yesterday after church I arrived here at her apartment so I could help take care of the baby for 24 hours.

Vers is a Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. But when she lands on Earth in 1995, … Read More Movie Review: “Captain Marvel”
“I don’t want to see Mission Impossible in the theater,” my dad announced yesterday afternoon as we strode into the theater to see Christopher Robin, passing up all the various posters on the wall as we went. “It won’t have the healing powers of an afternoon with Pooh Bear.” He couldn’t have been more right about those “Healing Powers,” haha! Christopher Robin may be the purest, softest … Read More Movie Review: “Christopher Robin”
Can I rise to the challenge of giving my opinion on these six movies I saw recently in a hundred words (or less)? Let’s see, shall we? Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Continuing in the tradition of sensible, sarcastic dudes cleaning up after John Hammond’s hare-brained vision of a world with terrifying-but-absolutely-gorgeous dinosaurs, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom picks up a few years after its blockbuster predecessor … Read More 6 Movie Reviews in 100 Words or Less
