Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’hoole

Synopsis

Acclaimed filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) makes his animation debut with this fantasy adventure based on the beloved books by Kathryn Lasky. Young owl Soren marvels at his father’s epic stories of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole, mythic winged warriors who fought a great battle to save all owl kind from the evil Pure Ones. When he and brother Kludd fall from their treetop home and into the talons of the Pure Ones, it’s up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave owls. Together they seek the Great Tree, home of the Guardians–the only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms. The stellar voice cast includes Abbie Cornish, Miriam Margolyes, Helen Mirren, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess and Hugo Weaving.

Review

Animated movie that is great for the whole family. I spent an evening with my nephews and their parents and all of us were riveted the whole movie. The animation is great and the story line, though common, was good and enacted in a fun way. More than just a fun movie for kids, there is a great story here about keeping faith even when hope seems bleak while fighting to overcome injustice. Little girls will like it because of the cute owls, and boys will like it because of the intense action scenes. I very highly recommend this movie to all families, and if you just want to sit down to a good fun clean movie with a friend or significant other you cannot go wrong with Legend of the Guardians.

The Least Among You (DVD)

The Least Among You DVD Cover

Synopsis

Leaders are not chosen, they are called. Inspired by a true story.

Arrested in the 1965 Watts riots, Richard Kelly (Cedric Sanders) must serve probation at an all-white seminary. Although encouraged to break racial boundaries by its president Alan Beckett (William Devane), the school wants black followers not leaders. Even former missionary, Kate Allison (Lauren Holly), initially rejects Richard. A prison sentence looming, Richard meets Samuel Benton (Louis Gossett, Jr.) — “the gardener in the basement.” As Samuel guides Richard through his many trials, Richard must choose between his dreams and his destiny.

Review

The Least Among You is an inspiring DVD that gives the viewer a glimpse into United States history and the difficult issues surrounding racial prejudice, even amongst those who call themselves Christian. This film is as well made as any movie found in theatres today. In addition to being technically well put together, this film is also clean enough for the whole family to watch. If a parent is desiring to educate a child about the dangers of racial prejudice this film should be considered as a good candidate, though it is great for general watching too!
