The Warriors Gate
(2016)

Amazing movie
This is a film for the whole family to watch and enjoy. The part that did it foe me was when Jack learned to overcome his fears and beciome a true warior in mastery of Mind, Body, and heart and soul to evolve in to a real man , and teach a Bully a real lesson. this is a film that wilk teach yor kids the impotance of knowing them sleves and not giving in to ones fears this is a real anventure film with very strong daniel son and migigi overtones . i wold give tis film 100 out of one hundred stars for supiror acring and stage presence and good old vaules

Pan
(2015)

Pan
Eragon hear,

here we go again with yet another riveting review, of a rather awesome film by director Joe Wright, Starring Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard Garrett Hedlund as Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and Introducing Levi Miller as PAN, this is the backstory to the Peter Pan Saga, I thought the story was well thought out professionally executed by a 10 star Director, I thought that Pan was played by a excellent young actor Levi Miller first rate. his face said all that needs to be said in this movie Hugh Jackman a veteran in the film industry plays the villain with an intensity rarely seen today, the story line is just what the Peter Pan saga needed a backstory so we now know where Peter pan came from and how Hook enters the story. In closing i give this film one hundred out of one hundred stars

this is a Docoumentry plain and simple
This is NOT a FICTION Movie this is a fact based Documentary on Fred Rodgers television career, trough the years it is not for Kids it is not a movie not a cartoon, just an documentary, this is for grown ups please only grownups, kids would be board in the first three minutes.

The Emperor's Club
(2002)

Very up lifting
This is a family film in every meaning of the word it is very uplifting this is a coming of age story the whole family will enjoy, it is about higher learning And a upper class boarding school the kind of place I cant stand for many reasons but that is neither hear nor there. I liked the teacher MR, Hunter teaching western society's mostly about the Astro Greek empire around Creasers time . so in conclusion then I will say this is a film your family kneads to rent form your local Library of they have it, I will say I was in tears by the end of this film and that is a great feat since I have Asperger's syndrome , and we aspies don't cry very easily

Beirut
(2018)

Beirut
First off this is NOT a film for CHILDREN in way shape or form it is violent in the extreme séance of the word . it is also rated R, so keep that in mind this is a story about a part of the world that is still in turmoil and will be in that state for the rest of time,.

it is about CIA dark opts and terrorists to be taken seriously and lightly. one needs to pay close attention to this movie, it is highly charged please keep your kids away form this movie it will cause them to ask questions you don't need to be answering,

A Rumor of Angels
(2000)

AMAZING
I will start by saying that I cried trough the whole second part of this movie and I mean I balled the boy in this story James is very a very sad young man with a deeply set of emotional issues around the death of his mother when he was young, the old lady is a big influence on young James def a family film worth a watch if you can handle a good cry, this is a very well thought out story with a great cast, But please not suitable for kids under eleven

Lad: A Yorkshire Story
(2013)

Lad
This is a very thought invoking film, with many layers of thought going on hear, you have a family that has been torn apart by gut wrenching loss and heart ache, in the loss of their father and Husband, the hardest hit is Tom the youngest at thirteen he felt the brunt of the responsibility for his family as his Brother went off to the Army, he was left to fend for the family having to sell his prized rock collection to send his mother to tractor trailer school, that took heart to do, and steeling that tractor and spreading crap on the bank took wat the Greek,s call Th'rros Guts and courage, and I would say that boy has it in spades, this is a coming of age story for the whole family but will take your full attention because of the Upper Highlands accents, this a one for the whole family no bad language at ,east that we can understand. I would give it a rating of PG loosely. worth a watch

Vitus
(2006)

Vitus
A musical Extravaganza of Epic proportion on a biblical scale. this is the story of a young genius virtuoso of the ivory keys, Vitus is misunderstood until he takes maters in to his own hands, This is PG 13 due to complicated social issues, I enjoyed this film so much I bought a copy, HIs grandfather dies he was Vitus's moral grounding, and best friend but it mostly about the Music

this is worth the watch

God bless and enjoy

Fair Haven
(2016)

Gay Conversion therepy A Joke
I enjoyed this film immensely it deals with an issue that is close to my heart as I am a Gay man, the subject at the start of the movie Gay conversion therapy the biggest bunch of Non anectodical. The American Psychiatric Association APA opposes psychiatric treatment "based upon the assumption that homosexuality per se is a mental disorder or based upon the a priori assumption that a patient should change his/her sexual homosexual orientation"8 and describes attempts to change sexual orientation by practitioners as unethical.6 It also states

this is a film that will make you think and I mean think on a deep metaphysical level it will make you think about your attitudes and how hate is WRONG. I do not recommend this film for kids under 16 due to Brief Sexual content that is not Inappropriate and this film deals with adult issues and themes Please Only upper age Teens Sixteen and above I would rate it PG 13+++++ and give it Ten Stars this is a very emotional film full of complex issues But that being said it is a very heart felt story that is very well written Kudos to the director and the editor and Thank you for your great film

Milton's Secret
(2016)

Milton,s secerate
This was an amazing family film full of family teams and me musings of a teenager in the throngs of family drama and the pains of growing up all the trials and tribulations that every teenage or about to be teenager's would identify with , I enjoyed this very much. I thought the casting of Donald Sutherland as Milton's Grandfather was brilliant he is one of my favorite actors who can play both a supper nice guy or a evil maniacal pig with equal aplomb. defiantly take your teen to see this or rent it, thank you

Solo: A Star Wars Story
(2018)

Solo
This film was amazing though I would say that the lack of Harrison Ford leaves this chapter of the franchise a bit wanting I have to say I was disappointed with the way the story played out, Lets hope there next film fills in the gaps.. I hope is a film about Yoda and him as a young man then Admiral Acaabar this is a amazing film for what it was a stand alone outside of the rest of the saga but would say go see it for a lack of anything else to do it is a good way to spend a hot afternoon

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
(2018)

Jurassic Park Fallen kingdom
This is a great family film for kids over 13 there are some scary things going on that younger kids might not be able to deal with it is a fast moving movie it is kind of sad to see the dynos left on the island die it is amazing they way the keep leading on to a new chapter in this saga you just know by the end there will be a new Jurassic park film by Christmas. Please take this film with a grain of salt it is very hard to believe any reasoned mind will not take any of it as real.

Only the Brave
(2017)

amazing
This movie is extremely trying movie to watch the verbiage was a bit rough the story well told but NOT suitable for young children under 13 by any means what got me was when the whole crew dies expect for the one guy. it tells the story of how tough it is to fight fires of that magnitude. this is a true conveyance of the facts of Wild land firefighting 100 times more difficult in order of magnitude then structural side of things. so many variables to consider wind speed, humidity, weather, this film is by far the best firefighting movie I have seen in many years better then Backdraft by far Backdraft was all BS this was real raw and in your face it was like Burn. or ladder 49. Josh Bolin is always a good choice as a lead actor I think,

I want to say I have the deepest respect for all our nations Fire Fighters Thank you for all you do.

Tommy and the Cool Mule
(2009)

Tommy and the Cool Mule
I enjoyed this movie No violence or foul language just good clean family fun and wholesome values. though I thought the acting was a bit sub Par for Kevin Sorbo not his usual style, and the dialog was a bit Lame but the premise of the film was sound I would recommend this for KIDS of All ages all levels of development it is just a real Laugh fest. I would liken it to movies like Cars, or other Disney films with talking animals, it had the look and feel of a B Movie and the sound of a Z movie no real directorial skill was put forward in this film I have my dithers as to weather it can even be called a Film, Nice try but No cigar hear

I also felt that the movie moved way to fast to follow along with the people involved need to go back to School and learn the basics of film making and directing no where near the skill of the directors of say the last air bender or Dolphin Tale, or Eragon Nice try nice effort but not good enough to impress me..

his film is good for I would say 9 year olds and under any one over 9 is to mature to believe this tripe save your time and watch a real movie

Ted
(2012)

R Rated NOT FOR CHILDREN under 17
I own a copy of this film on Blu ray Not for children very vulgar language expressive inappropriate themes Sexualy explicit subject mater, this film I for Adults a gut splitting experience funny from the start to finish Even though I am not really a Seth Macfarlane fan can't really stand him but this film overcomes that hate because of it,s funny nature, the jokes are NOT meant for young ears, the puppet work, is amazing Ted looks Very real.

A United Kingdom
(2016)

A United Kingdom
First off I want to say that this film had me in tears, in this film you will find as our British friends would say right from the off you will find Intense political intrigue and infighting, This Not a Movie for the younger set anyone under Fourteen should NOT see this film you need a firm grasp on politics and race and History to Understand this Movie, there are suggestive themes and racial overtones, But all in all a Ten out of Ten Stars I give this film definitely a History lovers paradise in this movie David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike both gave Hollywood Walk of fame performances, I would not mind seeing it again I was very moved by the local people's acceptance of Ruth as their Queen Please Rent this form your local Library for you and your Mid to late Teens to see I say Again NOT for anyone under 14. Bot actors get A resounding 10 stars a piece

Road to Perdition
(2002)

Road to Perdition
First of all this is NOT a film for CHILDREN in any way shape or form. it is violent in the Excess It stars Tom Hanks and Paul Newman and Jude Law, Tyler Hocechlin, Liam Aniken, Daniel Craig, Dylan Baker, and many others to form an all star cast in this visually stunning, piece of film work in as far as the costumes and period weapons and cars the story line is mind blowing,

I must repeat this is NOT a film for Children or any one under Sixteen it is Non stop Violence form the word go until the END very tense film that young kids will not under stand not be able to process. Please use caution with this film it is ( R) Rated

No Reservations
(2007)

No Reservations
First of all I want to say I give this Movie Ten out of Ten Stars. First rate acting, amazing cast and story line this is fun for the whole family to enjoy over popcorn and Coco. around a blaring fire there is no inappropriate subject mater what so ever. It is about the life of an amazing chef her Orphaned Niece and an up start cook.

This is a film I would See again many times, it goes along the same lines as Chef also a great film in it,s own rights . the story lines of the 2 films are very similar also in Plot in as far as there are young kids involved, and star crossed lovers they both are ravishingly funny and Entertaining films

That I would give 100 out of 100 stars to

Belle et Sébastien
(2013)

Belle And SEBASTIAN
This film IS unlike most of the films I review IS suitable for Children in fact it is approved by the Dove Foundation as family approved film it is NOT rated by the Motion Picture Association of America so one will have to use their own judgment as to letting ones kid,s watch this film I enjoyed this beyond measure Due to the fact I prefer family films that are non Violent and free of foul langue and Nudity and or sexual content I prefer films that make one think

The star of this film who plays SEBASTIAN ( Félix Bossuet) is a very talented young man you could read the emotions in his face that is one mark of a supper actor. this film is Seething with Nazis the foul buggers they were. Please rent this film form your local Library and enjoy with your family

God Bless your Friendly Film Reviewer

Patton
(1970)

Patton 1970
I watched this on a loan form my Local Library and was amazed at the skill of the Major Star who was George C Scott one of the all time greats film and stage I was shocked to see in this film but he was elegant and brash all at the same time what an amazing film this is it is very Historically accurate and extremely Emotion evoking this film is not for children under 15 it is full of anger and sadness raw bitter rage and laughter,

Patton was a geniuses in as far as Military strategy is concerned,that is why this was such a great film because they captured his character dead to rights. I give the director full marks for this work of Historic proportions so if you like history check out Patton.

D.C. Sniper
(2010)

DC Sniper
First off let me say this is NOT a Film for CHILDREN in NO way shape or form. This is Violence form the Get co This has very Inappropriate subject mater for any one under 16 and even then one should speak to there child. This film will make you think long and hard about events of our time past present, and about how sick some people are. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time it is a real tar tearjerker this was a insightful film well written and though out and Historically accurate it is a thought provoking film and one all mature minds will be talking about for some time, I would give this Ten out of Ten stars But I will say it again NOT a film for CHILDREN under Sixteen.
