Inkheart

The screenplay follows a listless episodic structure, in which one barely connected segment follows another without cumulatively charging the overarching story.

Kids' DVDs: June 2007

Jackson's film makes Ann's admiration for Kong an earnest distraction from her eventual, proper coupledom with Jack (who, even with Brody's Men's Health coverboy abs, can't compete with the potent spectacle of Kong).
