The word went out last week that the romance between Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber is on hold or maybe over. Although neither of the two have officially denied it or confirmed it, Justin gave a hint that he is sad and confused at this moment. Selena has not said anything yet, but […]
Denzel Washington is one of the most recognized actors in Hollywood, and deservedly so. He has a capacity to portray both the good and the bad in his characters. His roles often highlight the complexity of the human condition. His latest role is one of a flawed hero in the movie Flight which hit […]
Singer/actress Demi Lovato is back on the scene after going through some serious personal difficulties. She has gotten help, and she is having renewed success in her career.

His new album hit no. 1 on the hip-hop/rap charts last month. Yet artist Lecrae Moore follows a different beat than much of the hip-hop world. “Dear Hip-Hop,” he wrote on Instagram, “this didn’t happen because of swag, drug references, or stripper anthems. #Godisgood.” Lecrae’s music is about faith and some of the […]
What sort of man can win the heart of a supermodel? Earlier this year we published a story about model Kylie Bisutti. She had just announced her decision to leave Victoria’s Secret modeling out of respect for her husband and her faith. Later we sent Kylie some questions about her husband. Kylie was kind […]

We generally do not review “R” rated movies in this website, but since we are publishing an article about the main actor, Denzel Washington, this week we felt obliged to post a review of this movie. Although this movie is not recommended for younger teens (It is rated “R” and has an objectionable scene) […]
A beautiful but disturbing movie about a group of high school misfits and how their friendship helps them through the hurtful problems they are dealing with. The movie deals with a number of very serious issues (sexual abuse, homosexuality, drug and alcohol abuse). It is not for younger teens, but it is very well […]
A hilarious cartoon movie well worth watching. Selena Gomez does the voice of the vampire “teen” who is overprotected by her loving but obsessive vampire father. The daddy vampire (who is harmless, as are all the monsters in this movie) has created a hidden hotel where he can protect his daughter from the “evil humans”, […]
An entertaining comedy about a “loser teacher” who decides he has to help a friend. His efforts seem doomed to failure, as does his love life, but somehow he manages to find a way to at least do something. The movie deals with the “over-the-hill” experience that most adults face. It also deals […]
I am always fascinated with movies by director/writer Christopher Nolan. This was no exception. Nolan has an ability to talk about the dark side, the evil that is lurking in all of us. It is scary thing. Yet, in the Batman series, good eventually triumphs over evil. It is a story of hope, although it […]
A beautiful movie. A rich, handicapped man is looking for a new male nurse. A unemployed immigrant from Africa shows up thinking he will never get the job but that he can fulfill the legal requirements for unemployment benefits by applying for the job. The two begin an unlikely friendship. A truly inspiring story […]
Remake of the Spiderman movie. I liked the first one better, but this had it’s positive moments. The awkwardness of the scene where Peter Parker finally get’s enough courage to ask the girl out is classic. Her role in helping him discover himself and in helping him fight the bad guy is very positive. […]
A movie about early romance and about how even awkward attempts at romance have a certain magic to them. Still, I came away with the impression that the movie makers were trying to mock adults and traditional institutions and make them all look stupid. An interesting attempt at a new twist on a classic theme […]
A wild and fiercely independent princess fights against the expectations of her mother and her society. Her mother wants her to accept a betrothal for which she is not ready.
