"The Book Thief": A child looks at fascism

"The Book Thief" is not a happy movie. It's narrated by Death, though he's a trifle friendlier than usually depicted.

“Thor” sequel another hard-hitter

As superhero flicks go, this one is still pretty standard fare for the casual viewer, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable.

“In Organic We Trust” exposes falsely organic foods

Great outer space “Gravity” and other film pleasures

I must start with the most stunning, a 3D film that had me jumping and falling out of my seat throughout the entire exasperating journey.
