Barrie, or the circumstances that inspired him to bring into being one of the most iconic figures in modern children’s literature. Based on Alan Knee’s play “The Man Who Was Peter Pan,” “Finding Neverland” is a sensitive, smart and creative look at an idiosyncratic author with unconventional emotional ties.

title: Ladder 49 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Touchstone Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Joaquin Phoenix, John Travolta, Morris Chestnut, Robert Patrick, Balthazar Getty, Jay Hernandez, Jacinda Barrett theatrical release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom "Ladder 49" tells the story of Jack Morrison (Joaquin Phoenix), a firefighter with the Baltimore, Maryland Fire Department. The movie covers over 10 years of Jack's life and service to the FD. The scope of the movie feels a lot like the pacing and emotional intensity of films back in the ‘40s and ‘50s. The storytelling is grand and eloquent, sweeping and broad, yet the pacing suits today's audiences to a T by moving through the story in quick snapshots of action and emotional payoff.

title: Ray function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Universal Studios Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Jamie Foxx, Regina King, Kerry Washington film release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh Oftentimes, when people talk about the movie “Ray,” folks mention Jamie Foxx’s portrayal of the famed musician first. Due to this film’s revelation of his dramatic skills, in addition to his highly developed musical talent, it’s now impossible to view this multitalented performer as just another hardworking comedian. When it comes to Foxx, comedy is but one of his many qualities. These days, every comic and his brother, it seems, has his own sitcom. While few of these stand-ups are playing themselves the way Jerry Seinfeld did, most of these gigs are not what you might call difficult artistic stretches. With few exceptions – notably Jim Carrey and Robin Williams – comedians just don’t cut it as serious actors. Although Foxx has a few funny bits in this film, the ...

title: A Beautiful Mind function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Universal Studios Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Paul Bettany release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Last year’s Best Picture Oscar winner "A Beautiful Mind" is fascinating viewing, both as a story in its own right and because its protagonist, Nobel Prize-winning mathematician John Nash, Jr. (played by Russell Crowe), is a real-life figure. Much has been made in the press of the movie’s divergence from historical fact about the man, but it still has undeniable power. In 1947, the young Nash arrives at Princeton University with a brain full of mathematical gifts and virtually no skills at human interaction. Despite this, he forms a strong friendship with his outgoing British roommate Charles (Paul Bettany) and forges more tentative bonds with a few of his fellow mathematics students (Adam Goldberg, Josh Lucas, Anthony Rapp). Nash shows signs of mental imbalance under the strain of trying to ...

This is one of the dullest films about some of the dullest people ever. There is no drama, no intrigue and certainly no passion. It seems to be a group of actors going through the motions because the director did not know how to execute the game plan.
