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

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.

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: “Reader: I want to live where people respect each other and the environment

Neh, not buying any of this. People drifting all over the place; least they can and should do is be picking up as they go along.

Dorchester park has a three yard commercial dumpster. And, trash all over the place. Yes, the wind does blow stuff out of the dumpster; put it back in and close the lid. Happens to homeowners when the raccoons get into our bins; stop; clean it up; move on. Stop with the OMG the wind! OMG the city doesn't pick up the trash bags we leave on the bike path and the police told us we could do that and then nobody picked it up and but the police told us we could leave it there and blah blah blah. We no can pik up trash! Just stop. The excuse train needs to stay back in the shed. Now!

All the stuff came from somewhere. Easy solution :0 Pack it in, pack it out. This has worked for outdoors people quite some time. The fast food cup came from somewhere; take the empty back. The plasticware came from somewhere; take it back. All this crap that is all around the campsites; it all came from somewhere. Take it back. All the unwanted and abandoned all over the place clothes came from somewhere; take them back. There are no complexities involved in this concept.

If somebody is so damn tough and ingenious that they can live outdoors in Colorado year round; yet they can not handle this concept of take trash : to trash container ... eh; ummm; seriously? And the blame goes to where? To who? To what? To people that are sick of it and write an editorial? Really? "You wrote a letter and this is your fault". Uh, I too want a medium rare steak, loaded baked potato, salad, and a coke. Awww crap; you mean I have to earn this stuff by living properly! That's not fair!

"Hi. I live outdoors. In Colorado. Nope, can't handle this put the trash in the trashcan stuff. Too difficult for me. Just can't figure that one out" #Fail.

"The police will arrest me if I put an empty soda cup and a hamburger wrapper into a residential neighborhood trash bin". What is this crap? How does somebody even write bs like that. "I can't do anything with my trash because I'll be arrested if I put it in somebodies trash can" Pfffff. Next excuse; please.

Antlers park has three trash cans, usually overflowing; with the plates cups and napkins that people are charitably fed on there. But somehow; there are also the same plates cups and napkins all over Antlers park. Why? Why can this stuff not be taken away by the people providing such a generosity to the people that partake of it? Do none of the people of Antlers know how to simply do a jump up and down on the overflowing trash cans?

If the community of homeless can't figure this stuff out; and people don't like it; good Lord; don't blame the rest of the populace for having a problem with the environment of trash that seems to typify 'homeless'. Most of the discrimination against the homeless is an item that starts with the homeless, and it needs to be ending with the homeless.
