Re: “Frisky

Heart-warming, hysterically funny and honest. Definitely worth a watch for the 20-somethings.

If it wasn't for these two-sponsorship in racing wouldn't be what it is today. They changed the world I love so much! Thank you Don and Mr. McEwan!

Re: “Virgin Tales

I just saw this documentary and I resoundingly disagree with the writer's synopsis. The writer's bias is obvious and sadly, he missed the entire point.
His final sentence is critical and telling when he writes, "the religious right is grooming a young generation of virgins to embody an evangelically grounded "Utopia in America." That was NOT the point of the documentary!
Christians, Evangelicals know, beyond a doubt that Utopia could NEVER exist here on earth first of all, because we live in a world where sin exists. And, second, the Wilson family's emphasis is on a loving relationship with God for themselves then, protecting, teaching and mentoring their children on the importance of living a life that is pleasing to God.
To spread the love of God to a world that is exploding with hatred and violence is a very good thing but not, it seems, to the writer of this synopsis.

Re: “My Little Pony Equestria Girls

This movie is from DHX, made by the FiM team. If there's anybody on the face of the planet earth who could made this good, it is them. They've spent the past 65 episodes proving that cartoons intended for girls don't have to suck, so their track record is unimpeachable. However, there is the chance their style could not translate well to the new demographic, but I trust Jayson Thiessen's team to do well here.

Re: “Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: The IMAX Experience

Remember the old tv show? Well, this movie finally pays tribute to some of the timeless cliques of the tv show, and does them well. Thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this movie and loved how it ended with a future and a positive spin. Word of warning, if you have any vertigo problems, hold on tight during the Dubai building scenes. lol

Re: “The Fault in Our Stars

Witty, fresh, and well acted---While the story is somewhat predictable, the actors bring real emotion and understanding to their respective roles. I enjoyed the entire story as did my husband. I'd recommend this movie to any age group. We are not teens, but I teach teenagers and found this remarkably believable.

Re: “12 Rounds

John Cena is getting better at acting. A good dvd to watch for lunch.

Re: “Lord, Save Us From Your Followers

This film is not what I expected. I expected to find a left-leaning film critical of Christianity and I found a basically even-handed look into how Americans deal with religion and politics. It is a compassionate look at our strengths and weaknesses.

Re: “Star Trek

I must not get it. I thought the movie was ticking along quite nicely until Spock (old Spock) appeared and started messing with the time-space continuum. I was lost for about 15 minutes until he disappeared, and then lost when he reappeared. I think it would have been a really good movie if the director didn't feel the need to please the fans from the past. It could have stood on its own, but sadly, missed the mark in my opinion.

Re: “A Story Worth Living

This is the first time in my life that I want to warn people not to go see a movie. This movie sucked. It is a story of a story of a story. There is nothing here. It tries really hard to be of some meaning but has none. It is an insult to series like A Long Way Around and A river Runs Through it to even be mentioned. I wanted to yell at the screen a few times because it was so forced. Here is a thought, tell us where you are, where you are going. Talk about things that happen on the trip and do not force scripted stories. I want my time back, complete waste

Re: “8: The Mormon Proposition

Marriage reflects the natural moral and social law evidenced the world over. As the late British social anthropologist Joseph Daniel Unwin noted in his study of world civilizations, any society that devalued the nuclear family soon lost what he called "expansive energy," which might best be summarized as society's will to make things better for the next generation. In fact, no society that has loosened sexual morality outside of man-woman marriage has survived.


Analyzing studies of cultures spanning several thousands of years on several continents, Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin found that virtually all political revolutions that brought about societal collapse were preceded by a sexual revolution in which marriage and family were devalued by the culture’s acceptance of homosexuality.


When marriage loses its unique status, women and children most frequently are the direct victims. Giving same-sex relationships or out-of-wedlock heterosexual couples the same special status and benefits as the marital bond would not be the expansion of a right but the destruction of a principle. . If the one-man/one-woman definition of marriage is broken, there is no logical stopping point for continuing the assault on marriage.

Re: “Nor'wood negotiates to buy government land southwest of downtown

Jenkins and Anschutz own COS - what they want, they get. And the City has Jenkin's back. The article says: "RBD is in a situation where it can benefit the entire community by selling this property to Master Developer." Explain to me how the University Village Colorado shopping center on N. Nevada, across from UCCS property, benefitted the "entire community" and taxpayers when ALL the sales tax collected for 30 years goes to paying down the City's debt incurred to build UVC and NONE of the sales tax goes into the General Fund? The City's involvement in this enterprise was a great deal for the developer, but not for the City. And virtually all of the UVC tenants are national chains, a practice that is not supportive of Colorado businesses, and we can expect a "Master Developer" to bring in more chain restaurants and retail.

But Jenkins/Anschutz also want the appearance of legitimacy, and hence they buy and place their development supporters on the City council. Naysayers to developer's schemes to transfer the risk and costs of development to the taxpayers can expect to be tarred and feathered by editorials in the Anschutz owned Gazette, whose editorial board includes Anschutz's son.

Re the current election, I'm surprised that Gaebler is persona non grata with developers, particularly Nor'Wood/Jenkins, since she is on record saying that the BLR annexation agreement should be revised and taxpayers should bear millions of dollars of the infrastructure costs of Jenkin's BLR development, which is contradictory to the Judge's recent ruling that ALL infrastructure and other development costs were SOLELY the responsibility of the developer. It would be helpful for voters to hear from Gaebler as to how she as a Council member would vote on this issue.

Re: “Nor'wood negotiates to buy government land southwest of downtown

It would save us all a lot of time if we disband City government altogether and just build Jenkins an office to direct his plans for the use City assets and revenue to benefit him and his company. Why participate in the charade that we have people representing us?

Re: “Local masseuse uses cannabis oil to ease clients' pains

My husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer that spread from his brain into the lungs and liver. he became so ill that it tired him out to do the smallest task; to walk across a room would take great effort and all his breath away. I was unable to bear his situation anymore and i begin to ask questions about cancer in my neighborhood and work place, above all i was praying that God should send healing to my husband and take the sorrow away from my family, one faithful evening my neighbor who recently moved to the neighborhood came to me that she heard that i have been asking question about cancer and told me about Jenny Kim hemp oil and how it cured her 9 years breast cancer. She gave me her email (medicalcannabisoil0@gmail.com). It was a great joy that day and hes my husband life saving angel, i ordered the oil and i received it that week and followed his instructions and gave my husband the hemp oil. To God be the glory my husband is totally cancer free and he is healthy and strong now, after which he reported that he could breath well, was not experiencing any pains and felt the good cells in his body. four days later our family doctor, Benson, reported there were no signs of him having any trouble breathing or problems with physical tasks and cancer; Thank you lord, my husband is much alive with the help of Gods servant Jenny. my husband is now able to breathe fully and deeply. His doctor reportedly says his liver is cancer free. That he does not seems to have a small amount of cancer in his liver and lungs again. The doctor is amazed at the effectiveness of the hemp oil. my husband and I believe the major changes in his body. Of course we do not deny the important role of dieting . my husband story is an ideal example of how hemp oil healing miracles often have in the body.) We Thank Jenny Kim for his miraculous hemp oil treatment. contact her via Email; medicalcannabisoil0@gmail.com
