The Soloist

It's intriguing that this film is based on a true story. Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx) is a homeless man but different than most. He is a musical prodigy who attended Julliard and who has a mental illness. When L.A. Times news reporter Steve Lopez (Robert Downey Jr.) comes across him on the street [...]

Hamlet 2

"Hamlet 2" would make Shakespeare turn over in his grave if he knew of this tragedy (and I don't mean "tragedy" in the sense that Shakespeare would have meant it). This is not a Greek tragedy or one of Shakespeare's tragedies such as his original play. This is a tragedy in the sense of its [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Nicole Kidman as an interpreter hears a plan of an assassination of a foreign president she has strong feelings against. CIA and foreign police both investigate what she heard and come to their own conclusions and try to stop the assassination by any way possible. I thought this was a good movie. [...]

The 40-Year-Old Virgin

Well, it's no surprise that I could have waited another 40 years before I saw this film. As the title implies, the main character is still a virgin. For almost 2 hours the viewer is inundated with every virgin joke ever told. The rest of the time, we are put through a barrage of language that [...]
