The popular series continues with The Greatest is the Least in which sisters Mary and Martha are aflutter as they prepare a special feast for Iesodo and his flock. In the midst of the preparations, Iesodo shares the value of serving others. In The Good Pigeon the Cypress Tree is on lockdown! Unwelcome pigeons have arrived at the lake and the flock is feeling defensive. Iesodo shares the story of The Good Pigeon, who selflessly comes to the aid of Sandy the Partridge.
Iesodo, that beautiful white dove, is here once more to teach all the birds the importance of kindness to others and those closest to you. The Greatest is the Least is a story about being friends to everyone and doing the best you can while focusing on the good things and time you can spend with your friends. In The Good Pigeon Iesodo teaches the birds about the gift of sharing and helping others no matter who they are. Iesodo is an allegory of Jesus in the bird world; his teachings are faithful and educational. Everyone in the family will love this series, plus the wonderful music, as each episode includes important life lessons. This is a great animated series and we are pleased to award Iesodo the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. – www.dove.org

Sully is a very powerful, miraculous, heroic story about the airline pilot who safely landed 175 people in the Hudson River on January 15 2009. SULLY takes a small slice of life and turns it into a tremendous insight into the political, politically correct battles of our day. Caution is advised for older children because of some light foul language and intense air crash moments.
MOVIEGUIDE Review – “The Hero Faces a Government Inquisition”
Sully is a very powerful, miraculous, heroic story about the airline pilot who safely landed 175 people in the Hudson River on January 15 2009. The movie makes clear that this miracle was a miracle and that the pilot, Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, was the right pilot in the right place at the right time. He had been flying for more than 40 years. He also had been a fighter pilot. All that experience was dedicated to the airline and his passengers.
Once Sully and his co-pilot save the passengers, however, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) starts to blame Sully so they can have a scapegoat for the crash. The movie chronicles the inquisition and persecution of Sully, and Sully’s considered, truthful, responsible response to the government bureaucrats. He never shirks from his responsibility.
The movie Sully takes this event and turns it into a tremendous insight into the political, politically correct battles of our day. It is a current version of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington or Meet John Doe. The movie has many references to miracles. Some scenes look like Sully is praying by his bed, and some passengers hold crosses and pray, but this is not the emphasis of the movie. The movie stresses that the government can be wrong, the computers can be wrong, the engineers can be wrong, and that, ultimately, the man on the front lines, the pilot, has to determine the action. There’s brief upper male nudity, there’s brief air crash violence, there are several obscenities, but very few profanities. The acting is terrific, and the music is wonderful.
Clint Eastwood does a marvellous job conceptualising and directing the movie. Tom Hanks was Sully Sullenberger. This is a movie well worth watching. Caution is advised for older children because of the movie’s light foul language and intense air crash moments. – www.movieguide.org
