The Jungle Book - We're Stronger Together

The Jungle Book - We're Stronger Together

Rudyard Kipling’s timeless story of the boy raised by wolves in the jungle returns to the big screen once again, courtesy of Disney Studios. If you remember the animated 1967 version, I just bet you’re humming the tune for “Bare Necessities” in your head right this minute. This live-action version of the story features only one live person, the man-cub Mowgli (Neel Sethi), although the digital wizardry performed by the filmmakers just might have us believing that the animals are real, too.

Midnight Special - Seeking

Midnight Special - Seeking

"Midnight Special," the new film from "Mud" director, Jeff Nichols, follows Alton Meyer (Jaeden Lieberher) on his journey of discovering who he is and where he belongs. Sounds pretty normal, right? Not in Alton’s case. This 8-year-old boy has special powers of some kind. He can’t go out in daylight and this bright light shoots from his eyes whenever he removes the blue goggles he wears.

The Young Messiah

The Young Messiah

An imaginative portrayal of one year in the life of the Child Jesus. The story begins with Jesus in Egypt being bullied by another boy from the Jewish community, and escalates into some gripping action which it maintains to one degree or another throughout the film. Never boring. Never trite. Faithful to the Scriptures and with sound theology, this film has everything in it but the sensational.

Max Movie Review

Max Movie Review

I grew up reading two or three Hardy Boys novels each week during the summer much to my Mom’s chagrin. She used to tell me to get my nose out of a book and go do something constructive, preferably outside. Max, a new film from Boaz Yakin (Remember the Titans), feels like a throw-back the adventures of Frank and Joe with some Lassie thrown in.

Minions

Minions

The funny, pill-shaped, nonsense-jabbering characters from the Despicable Me movies get their own screen time in Minions. Their purpose: to serve the most despicable master they can find. But it seems like they inadvertently keep causing the demise of those very masters with their hilarious ineptitude. From a T-Rex to Dracula to Napoleon, the well-meaning Minions just can't seem to keep “the boss” around for very long.

Inside Out Movie Review

Inside Out Movie Review

I’m already a fan of Pixar Animation Studios (I used their films as the basis for my Master’s thesis) so I didn’t need any pushing to go see Inside Out, the latest offering from the imaginations responsible for Up and Monster’s Inc. A long-time proponent that Toy Story (1995) is Pixar’s best film, I might have to re-look at that conviction in light of the absolute delight that is Inside Out.
