When a story is told from the point of view of a dog, it seems like it would be an easy assumption to assume that it is "dumbed down" for a family audience. But Jack London's gritty, often violent cla…
People who open their hearts to pets know that they are better people than us. Enzo the dog (gravelly-voiced Kevin Costner) pretty much knows this, too, if only he had opposable thumbs and a tongue th…
The last time I remember seeing a feel-good "family" movie about dogs that made me sob was Marley & Me. That movie was SOOOO mis-advertised, causing unsuspecting families with kids to go to the th…
I admit I was afraid to watch this for a long time because I was sure that the dog would die in the end. This is a slight spoiler, but let's just say there is a happy ending in the film (unlike the cl…

Bambi taught a string of generations about death, and now a whole new generation, pulled into what was advertised as a family-friendly kiddie movie, will be traumatized by Marley & Me. When the mo…
After about 15 minutes of watching Quill, I found myself scrambling for information on this film. Wait, is this a documentary? No, it actually isn't. Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog is a fascinating an…
