  • Bears
    Documentary We hope this review was both interesting and useful. Please share it with family and friends who would benefit from it as well.Movie ReviewBears come down from their mountain den, eat salmon and clams (with a little grass salad on the side), then head back to dig another hole for winter. There ya go. That's a bear's life boiled down to its basics. But fans of Disneynature documentaries already know that such a bland recitation leaves out all the fun, all the grand and vivid visuals, all the smile-worthy mix of real-world observations, character asides and first-person patter generated here by affable narrator John C. Reilly. It doesn't begin to hint at how cool and awesome it is to watch ultra-slow-motion high-def shots of jumping salmon, rushing waters and leaping beasties. And, hey, let's not leave out those cute-as-a-teddy-bear cubs! Like the four other Disneynature Earth Day-linked docs before it, Bears takes up-close and intimate video of animals in their natural habitat and reshapes that stock into an enjoyable, anthropomorphized journey dosed with challenge, villains, love and joyous victory—you know, the kinds of things we animal-loving humans like to see in our stories. From that perspective, this mom-and-cub chronicle becomes a grand adventure that demands a bombastic descriptor, maybe even underscored with a majestic musical score: Alaskan grizzly Sky and her two babies, Scout and Amber, venture down from the snowy peaks of the Katmai National Park on a year-long quest to hunt salmon-packed waterways while searching for both sustenance and family bonding. There are early spring avalanches to circumvent and predators to avoid. And when the food supply gets particularly scarce, the cubs have to even be wary of their own kind. Magnus (the huge, dominant alpha male) and Chinook (a famished outcast) both pose a threat to the defenseless cubs. But never you worry! Mama Sky is no pushover as she fearlessly stands by her brood. She sees them through thick and thin, and teaches them the ways of survival in the wild until it's time for another winter's hibernation. And it's worth noting that this particular furry frolic is the most kid-friendly journey of all the Disneynature flicks. There's nothing, really, that's unbearable. At "worst," we see hungry bears relishing their catches of salmon and clams, and maybe cuffing any critter that gets too close to that precious feast. There. Now isn't that a better told tale with a bit more than just the bear basics?Positive ElementsSpiritual ContentSexual ContentViolent ContentCrude or Profane LanguageDrug and Alcohol ContentOther Negative ElementsConclusionPro-social ContentObjectionable ContentSummary AdvisoryPlot SummaryChristian BeliefsOther Belief SystemsAuthority RolesProfanity/ViolenceKissing/Sex/HomosexualityDiscussion TopicsAdditional Comments/NotesEpisode Reviews]]>

  • A Few of My Favorite Things, Part 2
    (”Bears” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    A few years years ago, I went out on a limb and wrote a blog that included a list of many of my favorite movies. To make the grade, the films had to be both entertaining and family-friendly. I titled this blog, “A Few of My Favorite Things” and began with an introduction in which I admitted publishing such a compilation was risky. I was fully aware that not every film on my list would resonate with some of you, our readers. Most of you who commented were kind, but as expected a few of you thought I was a few fries short of a happy meal. For instance, a person named Jake commented: Soul Surfer??? For those who want to lust after half naked women!! To Save a Life??? I got the impression that sex before marriage is okay, as long as you don’t abort the baby!! Like I said, I knew I wasn’t going to please everyone. By the way, not only did I screen Soul Surfer, I was even in Hawaii for some of the filming (yes, a rough assignment, but someone had to do it!). While there were definitely some women wearing swimsuits, that’s a hard thing to get away from in a surfing movie. And with To Save a Life, my colleague Paul Asay wrote: The final product is polished, professional and one of the best Christian films I’ve seen. I guarantee you those words would not have been written for a film endorsing sex outside of marriage. Call me a glutton for punishment, but I’m ready to roll out “A Few of My Favorite Things, Part 2”—a list of 50 films I’ve liked since the original list of 30 was published in March 2012. Most, but not all of the films listed below have been reviewed by Plugged In. I’d encourage you to use this list in conjunction with our reviews. Nearly every film has a content concern or two. Even The Peanuts Movies with its perfect score has Lucy calling Charlie Brown a “blockhead.” I’ve been doing this long enough to realize we have readers who’d prefer their young children not hear any sort of name calling. I get it. Again that’s why I recommend you use this list in conjunction with our reviews. Incidentally, in light of the potential criticism you may be wondering why I’d do lists like these at all. Good question! For one thing, as we head into the Christmas gift-buying season, some of you are looking for gifts/stocking stuffers. Furthermore, I think that question was answered last time so please allow me to reprint what I said back in 2012: So, by now, I think you get my point: We hesitate to offer the “Plugged In List of Family-Friendly Movies” because we know that somebody, somewhere, will feel we let them down. That said, I regularly have friends and acquaintances ask me about flicks I personally like. (It’s similar to a physician being approached with a “Hey, doc, I got this pain in my arm and was wondering …”) So, even though I know that this list will not be without some controversy, I’m going to be brave and jot down a few titles of films that I’ve found encouraging and inspiring. Instead of Plugged In’s list, let’s call this “Bob Waliszewski’s List of Family-Friendly Movies!” And please note that, as with all films, age-appropriateness comes into play. So with all that said, here’s my most recent alphabetized list of favorites: 42The 3356 UpThe ArtistBearsBelleBeyond the MaskThe Book ThiefCaptiveChasing MavericksCinderellaThe Drop BoxEverestFar from the Madding CrowdGod’s Not DeadThe Good LieGrace UnpluggedHooveyHundred Foot JourneyInside OutInstructions Not Included JerusalemLes MiserablesLincolnA Long Way OffThe LunchboxMan of SteelMcFarland USAMirror MirrorMoms’ Night OutMr. HolmesMuppets Most WantedMy All-AmericanNot TodayOctober BabyThe Odd Life of Timothy GreenOld Fashioned Patterns of Evidence: The ExodusThe Peanuts Movie Return to the Hiding PlaceRogue SaintsSaving Mr. BanksSeasons of GraySon of GodUnbrokenUnconditionalWar RoomWhen the Game Stands TallWoman in GoldWoodlawn Okay, Jake (and everyone else), give me your thoughts.

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
