Rio 2

Rio 2 is a sequel of a rare city-bred bird and his family adjusting to their new life in the jungle.

The story is as thin as it gets. However, the Brazilian music is superb and the basic story line can pass.  Animation is fast-paced.  It's generally entertaining and meant for the whole family to enjoy.

Values passed on in this movie are love for family and environment. Despite the modern technology, the beauty of nature is still incomparable.  Of course, enjoy the Brazilian music!

Rating: 3/5

Son of God

"Son of God" is a timeless story on the life of that One Man who changes the world forever.

Credit is given to its production values that include music, special effects, make-up and cinematography.  Diogo Morgado is an excellent choice for the portrayal of Jesus because of his expressive eyes.

Set to be shown during the Lenten Season and Holy Week, this film is a definite classic all year round for all viewers seeking to know and deepen their relationship with Jesus.  Giving the Son of Man a human face that everyone will identify is truly an inspiration for all viewers to carry on the task of proclaiming the Good News, becoming fishers of men, and changing the world for lasting good.
