Because audiences associate Cameron with stunning visuals, it's no wonder that the film makes a number of unnecessary attempts to look beautiful.   At the opening there's a big majestic shot of the opening to the cave where the movie takes place. Almost all the underwater shots are bathed in a warm bluish-green hue. Muscular bodies glisten with occasional beads of perspiration.  "Sanctum" is a movie that takes place in a cave, most of it in the midst and aftermath of a devastating storm.

Longtime readers know that I have a soft spot for animated movies. Sometimes when I go on a streak of bad reviews, people will ask me if I ever praise anything. I'll point to some delightful animated films and then those people will roll their eyes and say, "OK, besides them. " I keep hoping to see an animated Best Picture Oscar winner, and I consider it a grievous oversight that "Wreck-it Ralph" wasn't even nominated for the award for 2012. "The Croods" is the first major animated feature of 2013, and it is proof that animation can be just as boring as all manner of live-action junk.

It therefore came as a surprise to find references to the ideas of Plato in two recent publications not related to philosophy.

" This symbolism applied to Plato's idea of a three-layered society governed according to natural rank.

Marionettes are puppets controlled from above by strings. The operators can be hidden or revealed, as they were Sunday at Kepler Theater. Brothers Peter and David Syrotiak worked their magic, standing above a small stage where they animated puppets for their version of "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.
