In this age of scientific innovation and discovery, it’s easy to dismiss the idea of miracles as spiritual wishful-thinking. But what if miracles are real? What if… Imagine this scene: ten year-old Pete Carlton is terminally ill with brain cancer and confined to a wheelchair. Given only months to live, Pete has one wish: to catch the most beautiful butterfly on earth, the legendary Blue Morpho, a magnificent creature found only in the tropical rain forests of Central and South America.

“Always remember this Anna, there are no walls, no bolts, no locks that anyone can put on your mind.” I vividly recall those words of Anne Frank’s father being rivited to the family television set as a young child watching this iconic film and feeling the tensions build as a group of people hid from the bad guys (the German Gestapo). It was my first glimpse into World War II and it wouldn’t be for years that I came to understand, or at least as much as anyone can understand, the horrors of the Holocaust. Based on the now famous journal kept by a young teenager, and youngest... (Read More ...)

“Well, you look about the kind of angel I’d get. Sort of a fallen angel, aren’t you? What happened to your wings?” Who can forget that famous movie line from the downtrodden George in the perrenial Christmas favorite, It’s a Wonderful Life? Directed by Frank Capra (nickname Capra-corn, for the Hollywood fluff he was criticized as creating) in 1946 and starring the convincingly vulnerable Jimmy Stewart, many feel this classic is the most inspirational movie ever made. And with good reason. Rife with the core values of life – compassion, selflessness and self-worth... (Read More ...)

What a strange conversation to say the least, however, as far fetched as it may seem, it sets the stage for the fantasy, almost fairytale-ish, harshly criticized movie, August Rush. Many may wonder why I chose a movie to review that critics hated. Afterall, I choose only movies that inspire me with the hope they will inspire you and the critics opinions and mine are generally close. Not this time. See, I love this film for a number of reasons they didn’t, the first being, it’s a feel-good... (Read More ...)
