Heaven is for Real

Based on the New York Times best seller, "Heaven is for Real" is the astounding (and heart warming) true story of a boy who visited heaven while on the operating table.
Greg Kinnear's performance elevates the film.
This seems like mediocre film making...maybe low budget?
It may have worked better to have had Colton just describe heaven...and not try to recreate what he saw for the big screen.

Rated PG
1 hr. 40 min.

Draft Day

"Draft Day," starring Kevin Costner as Cleveland Brown's GM Sonny Weaver, has a great mix of action, drama, and intrigue. This well-written (and well-acted) movie will keep you guessing as to what's going to happen on draft day to characters that we come to know and care about.

Great performance by Jennifer Garner.
Not a football fan? Not a problem. This film is so much more than a football movie!

Rated PG-13
1 hr. 50 min.

Bad Words

Jason Bateman (one of the best comedic actors in the business) makes his directorial debut in a very original story about a 40-year-old man who is able to participate in a national spelling bee based on loopholes in the rules. The strength of the story is the on-going question...What is this guy's motivation?
The main character's (Guy Trilby) interactions with the kids (one in particular) were "uncomfortable" at times.

Rated R
1 hr. 29 min.
