LITTLE NEMO: ADVENTURES IN SLUMBERLAND
Fun for the whole family, LITTLE NEMO: ADVENTURES IN SLUMBERLAND depicts a little boy who opens a Forbidden Door with a magic key from the King. With brilliant colors, excellent pacing and special effects, the movie tugs at your heartstrings while exploring issues such as temptation and peer pressure. Overall, the movie shows that our actions have consequences and that forbidden doors may open a hornet's nest of trouble. Please note, however, there is some magic present as an allegorical plot device which is clearly not nomenalistic.
In the film, DARK HORSE, fourteen-year-old Allison Mills, shaken by her mother's death, keeps company with the wrong friends and winds up in juvenile court. However, Allison discovers a whole new life after the judge sentences her to ten weekends of community service on a horse ranch where disabled children learn to ride horses. DARK HORSE is an entertaining film that will provide young people with a positive example.
HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK
In HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK, Kevin McCallister (Macauley Culkin) separates from his vacation-bound family for a wild adventure that involves defending his favorite toy store against crooks. The movie tries to outdo its predecessor with an added dose of slapstick violence, at the expense of original's most endearing qualities. Of course, HOME ALONE 2 affirms man's need for fellowship; however, the Christmas sentiments--such as good will and friendship--regrettably melt into a muddled humanism. For many, it was not the Kevin-vs-crooks showdown that made the original a success, but the storyline that affirmed Christian values, such as family, responsibility, repentance, and reconciliation.

Overall, THE MIGHTY DUCKS offers hope to young people, by pointing to the rewards of hard work, discipline, service, and teamwork.
