• Movie reviews: ‘Begin,’ ‘Deliver Us,’ ‘Planes’

    The latest crop of new films includes an exemplary sequel, a predictable romantic comedy and an interesting (if bloody) exercise in exorcism that — wonder of wonders — treats faith seriously.

  • Movie reviews: ‘Chef,’ ‘Apes’

    Chef (Open Road): Foodies will have a field day savoring this mouthwatering comedy-drama about one man's obsession with his cooking and his clan. Writer-director Jon Favreau, who also plays the title role, serves up an old-fashioned, heartwarming story, a labor of love that's all the more refreshing since it sees family values and marriage triumph, despite all obstacles.

  • Cana film fest lays red carpet for Catholic social teaching

    A recent film festival held in Singapore gathered filmmakers and faithful to consider and to share Catholic social doctrine through the storytelling of movies.

  • Movie reviews: ‘Fault,’ ‘Tammy, ‘Transformers’

    The Fault in Our Stars (Fox): Only the cynical would refer to this cancer-themed teen drama as a five-hankie romance. But even that wouldn't be a bad thing in itself. Good cries are cathartic. And true love in the face of untimely death never fails to inspire.

  • Movie reviews: ‘Dragon 2,’ ‘Jersey Boys,’ Transformers’

    How to Train Your Dragon 2 (Fox)

    Although it may seem like an eternity to eager young fans, four years is not an overly long time to wait for a sequel given the painstaking nature of the animation process, even when fully computerized.

  • Barbara Nicolosi: The special cross of the artist

    Barbara Nicolosi has worked in Hollywood since 1996 as a writer, producer, and production company executive. She’s also a blogger, speaker, executive director of The Story Institute at Azusa Pacific University, and co-founder of Act One, a training/mentoring program for Catholic writers and producers.

  • 'The Fault in Our Stars' hailed for themes on suffering, love

    Bestselling movie and book “The Fault in Our Stars” provides material to think more deeply about belief and skepticism – as well as the lessons on suffering and vulnerability that the terminally ill can teach us, clergy and cultural observers say.

  • ‘Alone Yet Not Alone’: Faith lessons for families

    The movie, “Alone Yet Not Alone,” an historical drama based on the true story of how faith sustained two immigrant sisters’ lives after their capture by Delaware Indians during the French and Indian War, opens in selected theatres nationwide this week.

  • DVD tells story of Knights of Columbus founder

    A documentary about Venerable Michael McGivney, the 19th century priest who founded the Knights of Columbus, is now available on DVD.

  • Movie reviews: ‘A Million…’, ‘Ida,’ ‘Maleficent’

    The starkly beautiful minimalist masterpiece that is "Ida" adroitly navigates two horrific eras of Polish history as an aspiring nun discovers her true identity. While brisk and unadorned at a brief 80 minutes, the film is nevertheless anything but simplistic. Director and co-writer (with Rebecca Lenkiewicz) Pawel Pawlikowski assumes that the audience knows something of the Holocaust in Poland, and of the Stalinist show trials to consolidate state power that followed the Soviet victory in World War II.
