The Joneses (2009)

You’ve heard the phrase “Keeping up with the Joneses.” Well, what if the Joneses were actually a fake family made up of salespeople, and the entirety of their perfect, flashy lives is a lie? That is the basis for this film starring David Duchovny and Demi Moore. A great commentary on America’s obsession with material wealth. 4 out of 5.

This documentary follows the lives of two 8-year-old Thai boxers, Pet and Stam. The girls are trained in the art of Muay-Thai fighting. Watching these pint-sized fighters in pink shorts punch and kick each other is brutal, and more than a bit unsettling. What’s worse is watching them tell the cameras they do this to make money for their families. A reality check that feels like a kick in the teeth. 5 out of 5.

In this first installment of the POTC series, Will Turner is determined to rescue his dream girl from a crew of cursed pirates, but Captain Jack has other ideas. This Disney blockbuster is always entertaining with plenty of action.  5 out of 5.
