   Gram77  I just finished watching a movie with Anthony Hopkins and Cuba Gooding. I didn't quite catch the beginning but it interested me right away. Apparently Hopkins was jailed for murder that involved him protecting gorillas. Any one know what I was watching? I know I really liked the movie. Who doesn't like Hopkins.

   Nugoddess  Gram, I believe that movie is called Instinct (1999. ) According to IMDb, ''When a noted anthropologist who left society to live in the jungle is imprisoned for murder, it's up to young psychiatrist to get through to him.'' Donald Sutherland was also in that movie.

   Nugoddess  We saw Heaven Is For Real the other day - based on a true story, it is a lovely movie that didn't preach or shove anyone's beliefs down the audience's throats. The little boy who played Colton Burpo was very good and I am a big Greg Kinnear fan. Greg played Todd Burpo, the father.

What I especially appreciated about the movie was that the main characters were challenged to examine their beliefs in regard to what Colton told them he experienced. Colton's father seemed to be closer to his son than the mother who was more reluctant to accept Colton's story until he tells her she miscarried and he met his sister in Heaven. She didn't have a name because they did not know the sex of the lost baby; consequently, they did not name it.

The story seemed to stumble a bit when Todd went to visit a neurologist who explains that Colton hallucinated during a near-death experience. The movie did not explore that aspect further, which was disappointing as it felt that this scene was shoved into the picture ''just because''. Maybe the producers felt it balanced the religious aspect; if so, IMHO it did not work.

Margo Martindale and Thomas Hayden Church delightfully round out the main cast - Martindale has a couple of touching moments. A couple of cute chuckles and one scene made me sniffle - I really enjoyed this movie. I hope it gets a lot of traction and makes a couple of bucks.

Two big thumbs up from this reviewer as I highly recommend Heaven Is For Real.

   Rollingcow  Thanks, Nu, I've been wondering whether or not it would be worth going to see this movie. Guess I'll have to agree to go now.
