‘The Biggest Little Farm’ is Heartwarmingly Educational – Review

Throughout The Biggest Little Farm, I was in tears. The film details the damage monoculture farming has on the land and the despair that this creates is immense. However, the film is also careful to create a sense of joy out of the simplicity of nature, and its ability to heal itself with the right human care.

The Cat is Out of the Box – ‘Cats’ Film a Colossal Fail – Review

Like everyone with access to the internet, I saw the two baffling trailers to Cats.

Lacking Fire, Cena’s New Film ‘Playing with Fire’ is Largely Forgettable

Remember when Vin Diesel took a break from driving furiously fast and ended up undercover as a babysitter having to take care of three unruly kids in The Pacifier (2005)? Well, replace Diesel with the bulky John Cena, reuse a few of the same man-struggles-to-provide-basic-care-to-children gags, throw in a storyline about pseudo-macho smokejumpers and you have the moderately funny flick Playing with Fire.
