Joyful Noise and Sherlock Holmes

Joyful Noise

In the town of Pacashau, Georgia, things are not going too well. Shops are closing, folks are lining up at soup kitchens, and the town is in financial debt. In crisis, the town is used to turning to the local church, but the church is having problems of their own. The choir is one of the greatest in the region, but in contests they always come in second to a Detroit choir. Normally, this is not a big deal because singing is not about winning, but about praising the Lord. This year, however, the Pacashau choir has to win. If they don't, there will be no more choir. And those aren't the only problems the small Georgia town has to deal with.

This movie was really good. It discussed a lot of issues, though sometimes I wish it would discuss them without the instruction.

This movie was rated PG-13. Throughout the movie there are references to a scene in which it is implied that a boyfriend and girlfriend have sex and the boyfriend dies. There are some sexual references and kissing. There are a few uses of the words b****, a**, d***, and h***, and God's name is misused a few times. I give this movie a 3.9/5.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

I could give you a lengthy description of what happens in this movie but I think I will give you a little rundown and let you watch it for yourself, because when I say this movie was good, I mean it was GOOD. Sherlock Holmes is at it again. This movie is full of conspiracy theories, disguises, and lots of humor. Sherlock believes that terrorist bombings and the almost-war that follows in their wake, are all because of one man. Sherlock takes us on an amazing adventure to prove his theory and bring one mastermind to justice.

Seriously, this was a great movie. You're going to have to watch it to find out what happens but trust me, it is definitely worth it.

This film was rated PG-13. There is some kissing. Watson has his shirt off in one scene. You see a fat guy's torso and backside. There is one use of d***, b***ard, and h***bent. I give this a 4.8/5.

Did you know that Kari loves purple?!
