Here is a shamelessly effective horror film based on the most diabolical of movie malefactors, a child. Pity. Esther is such a bright child. So well-behaved. Her paintings are so masterful. She sits down at the piano and rips off a little Tchaikovsky. So why does ...
"G-Force" is a pleasant, inoffensive 3-D animated farce about a team of superspy guinea pigs who do battle with a mad billionaire who wants to conquer the Earth by programming all the home appliances made by his corporation to follow his instructions. It will possibly be enjoyed by children of all ages. The film is non-stop, wall-to-wall madcap action. It's possible to imagine Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer, and his cast and crew side by side ...

The good What a glorious celebration of accomplishment we had this past week when we marked the 40th anniversary of our landing on the moon.
