Aliens in the Attic

posted by Nell Minow
B-
Lowest Recommended Age:4th - 6th Grades
MPAA Rating:Rated PG for action violence, some suggestive humor and language
Movie Release Date:July 31, 2009
DVD Release Date:November 3, 2009

MPAA Rating:Rated PG for some mild rude humor and peril
Movie Release Date:July 1, 2009

Black Reel Awards Nominations 2014
One of the great pleasures of this time of year is voting for so many of my favorite filmmakers as a part of the Black Reel Awards. Thanks, as ever, to Tim Gordon for allowing me to participate. I think it is fair to say we had more and better choices this year than we ever have before. Here are
