  • Wings of Life 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Dec, 2014

    Basically a movie about the birds and the bees. It's all about how flowers reproduce in different environments, how they make bees, hummingbirds, butterflies and bats carry their pollen mistakenly to flower to flower.

    At the basest level, you could day the flowers give these creatures an STD of sorts and count on them to pass it along.

    Beautifully shot movie with images that look so clear you think they are CGI at times. In fact the longer I watched…

  • The Art of the Steal 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Dec, 2014

    Very good, albeit slanted heavily to one side of the issue, documentary on the Barnes art collection from just outside Philadelphia.

    Not great filmmaking on display here; talking heads practically from start to finish here. but it is well organIzed, simply laid out, and I found the talking heads quite interesting to listen to throughout.

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Mar, 2013 3

    Being a lifelong James Bond movie fan, I have seen and read more than my fair share of Bond "making of" and "behind the scenes" materials. On top of that, I recently researched and reviewed all the Bond films in 2012 for the Now Playing Podcast's James Bond movie retrospective series, so all the information is still fresh in my mind. So the subtitle of "The Untold Story of 007" doesn't apply to me; there is absolutely no new information…

    My kids and I watched and they liked this by far

    This movie's still great and is one of those few

    It's a film that's aged well
    after all's said and TOLD
    A film that still works for the young
    and the OLD
    I'm glad that I could share this with my girl and my BOY
    They're smiles and laughs --- that tells me it gave them some joy
