It’s easy (maybe even fun) to dismiss so-called “value-based media” on the basis that it’s sanctimonious, condescending, and inaccessible to anyone who might gain something from watching it. It’s even easier when it’s aimed at children, who tend to be more forgiving of material that is exceptionally poorly executed. But in a media landscape with clowns to the left and sermonizing to the right, VeggieTales is actually a refreshing addition. While other works of this nature tend to neatly divide its world into the righteous and the damned, VeggieTales endows its characters with a surprising dimension, and allows them to interact with the clearly established morals of the story in a recognizably human way. Even if the animation never quite equals the other talents on display, VeggieTales is a step in the right direction, and Jonah is a solid representation of that.

127 Hours (20th Century Fox) Harrowing true story of Aron Ralston (James Franco, in another fine turn), an extreme outdoorsman who finds himself trapped in a remote Utah canyon, his arm pinned between two boulders, with no help nearby, no communication to the outside world, and dim prospects for survival, to say the least. Director Danny Boyle manages to prove again that he’s one of the finest filmmakers working today by making a subject that is seemingly uncinematic a true example of pure cinema. Inventive, breathtaking, funny, and horrifying, often all at once. Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara make a memorable, brief appearance as hikers who connect with Ralston during his journey. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Commentary by Boyle, producer Christian Colson, co-writer Simon Beaufoy; Deleted scenes; Featurettes. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 5.1 surround.
