    An incredible journey from beginning to end that touches on the human spirit and weaves themes of home, identity and resilience, along with some incredible acting. Bring the tissues.

    It's hard to comprehend a world so rough exists. Children don't choose where they are born and some face incredible hardship because of it and must fight against the odds every single day. Not to mention the exponential hardship if you are different. Wonderfully told story and beautifully crafted and acted.

    Planes: Fire & Rescue

    ★★

    The follow up to last summer’s “Planes” spinoff from the “Cars” universe is just as unnecessary as the first. But with a tribute to firefighters, this one is much more palatable. But it is such a disappointment in regards to the animation. It looks cheap and rushed, worthy of a straight-to-DVD release — if only we were so lucky.

  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    ★★★★★

    One of the best movies of the year based on an excellent book of the same name. Where this movie shines is in the screenplay, which author Stephen Chbosky adapted himself. He also directed the movie. Its his story and vision executed very well for the big screen. Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller are perfect as the leading characters. A must-see movie. "We are infinite."
