    Prime Time Review: North Korea threatens war over movie

    The hermit nation of North Korea has recently proclaimed its newest round of threats towards the United States. This time however, the nation is not concerned about military issues or demonstrations, but a Hollywood movie.

    ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ dazzles

    The cast returns in this sequel to the 2010 “How to Train Your Dragon” movie, providing viewers with a hard-edged storyline.  Very quickly in the film it’s apparent that “Dragon 2” is at least on par, if not better, than the original journey.  Writer and director Dean DeBlois establishes all the familiar characters for moviegoers to pick-up right where they left off in the previous film.  The most significant ploy by DeBlois, though, is his masterful narrative that makes this animated movie enjoyable for adults and children alike.

  • ‘America: Imagine The World Without Her’ - Political film sparks controversy

    ‘America: Imagine The World Without Her’ - Political film sparks controversy

    This controversial political film from directors Dinesh D’Souza and John Sullivan will invoke vastly different reactions from audience members.  Many will find the film a patriotic, yet underreported, story on how our nation has prospered from our early years due to innovation, entrepreneurship, and capitalism--emerging as not only the wealthiest nation on the planet, but also the most generous.  Just as many other viewers will leave the theaters feeling jilted by a political infomercial disguised as a documentary.  Lastly, some moviegoers may be introduced to several political hot-button issues for the first time, and left reflecting on D’Souza’s historical data points on subjects such as relations with Mexico and Native Americans, slavery, imperialism, and capitalism.  Regardless of a person’s position or thoughts on these subjects, this film accomplishes one significant feat—it empowers people to formulate one’s beliefs and positions, squaring the movie’s interpretation with their own life experiences.
