Top Ten DVD List for April 22, 2014
Find time to watch these must-see movies this summer!
In my review Documentary Film ‘The Address’ Recounts Lincoln’s Ideals for Independence, starts out “On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to dedicate a cemetery at the site of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War. The President kept his remarks to a mere two minutes, paling in length to that of the relatively long-winded Edward Everett, a former Secretary of State whose keynote speech lasted a couple hours.”
I also had a great interview with Ken Burns.
In my 100 Best Films of 2013, I listed Black Nativity at #15, in the Big Budgets Honorable Mention section. It was mentioned by Prairie Miller, reporting on The Women Film Critics Circle 2013 Awards Ceremony, in which they voted for the best and worst movies of the year from a female perspective. They voted it runner up in the “Best Family Film” category, which was won by “The Wind Rises.”
I noted this film in May 2-12. It is an uplifting road flick about a rebellious tomboy, played by Bailee Madison, who is looking for her long-lost father. Instead, she finds herself adopted by a team of female rodeo trick riders. The cast includes James Cromwell, Alicia Witt and Frankie Faison.
Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2 is rated PG for mature themes and mild epithets.
