So this is somewhere between a movie review and a TV recap.
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

So this is somewhere between a movie review and a TV recap. In Your Eyes debuted on Vimeo yesterday, which means that a ton of people have already seen it, and it's arguably like a piece of television in that way. But it's also a movie — and in any case, I don't have anything terribly spoilery to say about it.

The Wind Rises may have lost the Oscar to Disney's Frozen, but Hayao Miyazaki and his famed Studio Ghibli animation studio aren't shedding too many tears.
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

The museum is hidden away in a forested glade next to rambling Inokashira Park in Mitaka, about a half an hour from Tokyo proper. Ghibli Museum is packed every day with visitors from all over the world. So crowded in fact, that you must buy your tickets in advance to enter. No tickets are sold at the door.

Movie review: Greg Kinnear offers thoughtful, real glimpse into 'Heaven'
Appleton Post Crescent
This isn't a movie about blind faith. This is a movie about trying to figure out what faith is, what it means and how it affects us.
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:
It’s certainly accurate to put “Heaven Is for Real” in the faith-based film category.But — and this is not to belittle recent films like “Son of God” or “God’s Not Dead” — it also works outside the sanctuary, as it were. Although it has some serious flaws, it rises above genre fare, thanks to Greg Kinnear’s intriguing performance and the work of a good cast.Click to read more and watch trailer.

When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.
