    film review: Secretariat

    The secret of this film’s success is that it isn’t just the saga of a famous, prize-winning horse; it’s also the story of his owner, a suburban housewife and mom who stepped into a man’s world and took charge of an animal she believed to be a champion. It documents a time in the late 1960s and early...

    film review: Nowhere Boy

    I saw this film in the best possible way: I didn’t know what it was about before I attended an early screening. I found it to be a moving look at a teenage boy’s struggles with his splintered family in England during the 1960s. When I realized the protagonist was John Lennon, it made ...

    Trailer Watch: Will Voyage of the Dawn Treader Be the Best Narnia?

    I am not a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia movies. Walden Media's $180 million The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was a huge global hit ($748 million) while the $225 million Prince Caspian, based on the weakest book in the series, was a relative disappointment that did well enough overseas ($419.5 million worldwide) to warrant a sequel. From age nine, I reread the C.S. Lewis Narnia books avidly, none more often than The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which is the best page-turning adventure tale of the lot, complete with seafaring travels, dragon, flamboyant talking mouse Reepicheep, the spirituality of the godly lion Aslan and of course a voya...
