Family-Faith Film Review: The Last Airbender
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Predators—Dreary sci-fi sequel in which a random collection of human warriors and criminals (most prominently Adrien Brody, Alice Braga and Topher Grace) find themselves unwillingly and mysteriously parachuted into a jungle by the invisibility-cloaked aliens of the title who then hunt them for sport. Despite a half-hearted last-reel lesson about the need to maintain civilized values, director Nimrod Antal’s addition to the thriller franchise that began with 1987′s “Predator” is mostly a survey of nasty ways to die, while Alex Litvak’s script is chockablock with obscenities. Frequent graphic violence, some of it gruesome, a few uses of profanity, pervasive rough and crude language. O — morally offensive. (R) 2010
Local Oregon foresters and craftsmen offer Woodturning Blanks for woodworking projects. Display your skills with a lathe by starting from pen blanks or bowl blanks and creating beautiful artwork. Your options expand even more when you consider the options with burl wood and wood slabs.
Finally, if you live in California, be sure to discuss your options at a Sacramento probate lawyer related to your estate and trust. Legal planning is critical, and having an attorney who comprehends probate administration and law will be invaluable!
