NOW SHOWING IN CINEMAS
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is an excellent time travel story. In the future, an army of giant flying robots has taken over earth, killing both mutants and now also humans. To try to save humanity, Professor Xavier and his superhero X-Men send Wolverine’s consciousness back in time to 1973 when the robots were first created. Wolverine has to convince a young Professor Xavier and his nemesis to work together. They must stop the professor’s former friend, Mystique, from killing the scientist who created the robots. Her assassination prompted the government to create the robots to kill the mutants anyway.
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is an entertaining, engrossing superhero movie, with really strong positive messages throughout. Hugh Jackman is particularly good this time out as Wolverine. Even better, the movie has some strong moral elements. In the story, hope, compassion, peace, and faith cast out fear, hatred, violence, and distrust. This positive content, however, is marred by some foul language, brief lewd moments, intense action, scary robots, and some objectionable philosophical, theological, political content. So, DAYS OF FUTURE PAST warrants strong caution.

MOVIEGUIDE REVIEW: http://www.movieguide.org/reviews/identity-thief.html
IDENTITY THIEF stars Jason Bateman as Sandy Patterson. Sandy is a perfect husband, father, and employee struggling to make ends meet in Denver. Diane, a woman in Miami played by Melissa McCarthy, steals Sandy’s financial identity. Legal loopholes prevent the local police from being able to nab Diane or help Sandy. So, he resolves to find her himself and drag her back to Denver to clear his name. Many comical misadventures ensue. Especially when it turns out two assassins and a bounty hunter, as well as the police, are after Diane.
IDENTITY THIEF is very funny and inventive. The filmmakers keep things fresh and unexpected. Also, their movie often extols justice, forgiveness, and doing the right thing. For example, the female thief eventually changes her ways. She also becomes friends with the hero and his family. However, IDENTITY THIEF has lots of strong foul language and a gratuitous sex scene in the middle. There’s also some stealing and fraud, though that’s mostly resolved positively by the ending. Ultimately, extreme caution is advised for IDENTITY THIEF because of its R-rated content.
