Film Review: ‘A Dog’s Way Home’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘A Dog’s Way Home’
Those predisposed to emotional manipulation by dogs at play and in peril will be easily swayed by director Charles Martin Smith’s “A Dog’s Way Home.” Based on the bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, this story about a lost dog attempting a 400-mile journey home takes us on an emotional roller coaster, most of it with a lump in our throats. However, for every shameless trick the filmmakers employ to pluck our heartstrings, resonant chords are struck elsewhere, teaching audiences about family, the power of unconditional love, and the ripple effects of compassion. In the pantheon of puppy pictures, this doesn’t rank as top dog, but it’s certainly not the runt of the litter either.

Bella (played by dog actor Shelby and voiced in narration by Bryce Dallas Howard) was born in the crawl space of a semi-demolished home in Denver. Raised by a stray cat

Killer Talent: A David Fincher Profile (Part 2)

With his latest film The Social Network in cinemas this month, Trevor Hogg profiles the career of director David Fincher in the second of a three part feature... read part one here.

After the production turmoil associated with his directorial debut Alien 3 (1992), American moviemaker David Fincher had given up on the idea of a career in Hollywood; his attitude changed when he received a script composed by an employee of Tower Records in Los Angeles. “I didn’t like my time in New York, but it’s true that if I hadn’t lived there I wouldn’t have written Se7en [1995],” revealed Andrew Kevin Walker (Sleepy Hollow) who, despite being told by the assistant to writer-director David Koepp (Ghost Town) that unsolicited screenplays were not accepted, pitched his idea about a serial killer who commits his murders according to the seven deadly sins. Intrigued by the concept, Koepp’s

The Traveler (2010)

The Traveler Director: Michael Oblowitz Cast: Val Kilmer, John Cassini The only reason I decided to view this film is for the fact that Val Kilmer stars in it, and, it is getting close to Halloween. I have enjoyed Kilmer's performances in the past ("Real Genuis, Top Gun, Thunderheart, The Doors"), but recently he has been seen in the direct to video market, which is a shame, because he is a talented actor. Even though this movie is beyond terrible--for reasons I will share with you--Kilmer still manages to hold your attention, no matter how bad the film might be--which it is....

Intelligence: Season 2 - DVD Review

There are a couple of things I hate. The first is being given a title to review of a show in its second season. The second, and more frustrating, is finding the show excellent and discovering that it.s cancelled and a third season isn.t coming. Intelligence lives up to its name, but alas season two is all there is going to be. Jimmy Reardon (Ian Tracey) is a family man, but he.s also a member of another .family.. He.s the head of a Vancouver multigenerational crime syndicate and his business partner is Ronnie Delmonico (John Cassini). His opposite is Mary Spalding (Klea Scott), the director of the Vancouver organized crime unit but is promoted to
