Plot:(IMDB)-Based on a true story, after Debbie Smith was raped, she didn't take the law into her own hands. She wrote the law.
Most of this rating goes to Lea Thompson who did a wonderful job carrying this telefilm. She had to come full circle and her performance made it believable. Anthony Lemke who usually plays the villain, is the loving yet conflicted cop husband and he's a natural. There's no weak links in the cast.
I wanted to see how it affected the husband everyone else in her life more than they showed. This was informative when it came to drafting and passing a law that would improve DNA and forensic testing and lessen the backlog of rape kits there are all around the country. That subplot was very dry when it came to scientists, doctors and politicians involved.
Plot: A stray dog has friends, a girlfriend and has to save all of them
The humans here did pretty well when it came to their performances and compared to Benji: Off the Leash. They all know their rank though because this is realy Benji's movie. Higgins (Benji) was perfect as the heroic pooch. His trainer and owner Frank Inn did a fantastic job. Director and writer Joe Camp was great at helping show Benji's emotions and motivations. His biggest were the length of the "love" montage and being repetitive with Benji's flashbacks.
This is a good family film and dog movie that holds up fairly well.
I revisited Lilo & Stitch I completely forgot how this made me cry and the attached photo is one of those moment. I emotionally unraveled because who hasn't felt that way before? It also makes feel for outsiders who act like him and Lilo instead of wanting to immediately write them off. Goddamn Disney, making me feel emotions.

This was a fun comedy mixed in with heartfelt drama, some adventure and it's also a love letter to Hawaii. It's still an animated Disney film but it's unique and a modern spin. The use of watercolor, Elvis Presley in its soundtrack and how there's curves in the look of the characters and objects. They captured Hawaii's beauty, its people and culture.
The voice cast was expertly chosen. Daveigh Chase portrayed Lilo's spunk and sadness perfectly. Casting Tia Carrere and Jason Scott Lee was a brilliant decision because they have the chops and as Asians, they can capture the accents very well. David Ogden Stiers, Kevin McDonald and Ving Rhames they're perfectly round out the cast playing complete opposites yet complementing the other characters.
I would have loved to have seen a flashback of Lilo and Nani's life when their parents were alive. Seeing the difference in her overall attitude would have rounded out her character. Other than that nitpick, this is an excellent film. I absolutely love it because it knows how to entertain and emotionally reach kids and adults.
Plot:Benji is back, this time around he has save himself, two other dogs, some humans from an evil breeder and bumbling dog catchers.
What I liked was the pro-pet adoption message and all the good characters like the young boy who takes care of Benji. The two dogs do well with all their action scene, they were well trained and adorable. Benji is on the left while Lizard Tongue. Although Benji didn't look to "mutt" enough. Utah looks pretty but everything else is a mess.
Although not graphic and mostly implied this is just too dark for a family film. I'm going to spoil this because I don't think anyone should see this movie. The evil breeder actually puts a pup in a bag and throws the poor fella into the river and he's generally rough with them. He's also abusive towards people too. There's no real heart here with the annoying dog catchers and there's too much human drama. In fact there's too many storylines going on.
