Chick Flicks On Demand to Support Breast Cancer Research

posted by Nell Minow

Warner Brothers Digital Distribution will support Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the fight against breast cancer every time one of 16 special movies is watched On Demand during a special initiative this month. So get a bowl of popcorn (and a hanky — there are some real weepies here) and settle back with “The Notebook,” “City of Angels,” “In the Land of Women,” “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood” and more, and enjoy the movie while you feel good about helping to end this terrible disease. (If you feel more like laughing than crying, try some of the other choices like “Miss Congeniality 2,” “Fool’s Gold,” or “Music & Lyrics.”)

    I am always completely in favor of anything that can be used to help support a worthy cause. It is nice that ‘On Demand” is willing to do so. I will even admit to having seen a couple of the films you had mentioned. However, I would like to see “On Demand” also feature guy related films which would also support breast cancer research. There are many males who are willing to help out but may not be wiling to view many of the chick films. Males and females working together for such an important cause would be beneficial. Thank you “On Demand” for your effort and concern.

    should also thank Warner Brothers Digital Distributions for supporting this cause and Nell for making her readers aware of what is going on.

When the Game Stands Tall
This dreary assemblage of every possible sports cliché has one thing in common with the game it portrays. Every time it seems to be going somewhere, it stops. More frustratingly, it wastes the opportunity to tell a good story by trying to squeeze in too many great ones. There are too many crises

Christian Indie Films of 2014
This year has already seen a remarkable and perhaps unprecedented number of Christian and Biblically-based films, from big-budget epics like "Noah" and "Son of God" to small faith-oriented films like "God's Not Dead."  There is an excellent summary of four Christian independent films of 2014 on In
