    Born in China

    ★★★½

    Good narration? ✅
    Great cinematography? ✅
    Adorable & interesting animals? Mostly ✅

    Add on some genuine feels to this look at animal families in China and you have a very enjoyable brisk film experience that will warm the heart and remind you animals have lives too. Better for the kids than most animated films. Take the whole family and have a big smile together.

By the third time seeing Scarlett Johansson nude, I couldn't even look. Our culture's views on everything from body image to sexuality to gender to morality have been exposed. It is disturbing, confusing, and absolutely wonderful.

    This aired at the perfect time because you can't think about the greatness of March Madness without remembering Christian Laettner. Was he cocky? Yeah. Was he a bit of an asshole at times? Yep.

    There are few things that sports fans almost universally agree on, but hating Laettner and hating Duke is one of them. If you're not a Duke fan, you're a Duke…
