He presents a troubled young golfer who is haunted by his father’s impossible demands for perfection and success. The young man breaks under the pressure and tries to run away from golf and his father: probably a good idea […]

Fantastic movie for it’s family values and light-hearted fun, but it is almost ruined by a bit of gross humor in a scene about the cat coughing up some traces of the Smurfs for the bad guy. The scene is totally unnecessary, or could have been done in another way. I. See the movie, though. […]

Good movie. I find almost all sci-fi movies corny, but the human drama in this movie is positive, fun, and interesting. And , truth be told, the sci-fi element does add thrills and adventure, even if it is totally unbelievable. Regarding the human drama, it presents the problems of sadness about death in a family, […]

Every decade or two, a controversial figure emerges on the music scene. An artist who is completely dedicated to pushing the extreme limits of what society can handle, both musically and visually. Lady Gaga is without question this artist today.
