Then vs Now: The Lion King

Released 06/24/1994                              Rated: G If I had to pick one Disney movie that everybody has without a doubt seen, it’d probably be The Lion King. It’s a coming of age story that doesn’t shy away from the notion of bad … Continue reading

Risen

Released 02/19/2016                              Rated: PG-13 I really enjoyed this movie. I kind of wanted to see it when it released in theaters, but didn’t get around to it. It looked, in my personal opinion, like the best of the religious options … Continue reading

Elf

Released 11/07/2003                              Rated: PG I think this is one of Will Ferrell’s better comedies. Most of his films I just can’t get into, I find them too dumb, but this one works for me. It’s a decent blend of comedy, … Continue reading
