A ball of energy and catastrophe, it's no surprise when Ramona's wild imagination brings about more than she bargained for.

"We no longer all watch the same TV shows, we are no longer as innocent, and the world of Klickitat is fading into timeless nostalgia. Ramona and Beezus is a sweet salute." - Chicago Sun-Times

"It won't change anyone's world, but it'll keep kids happy -- and cool -- for a couple of hours." - New York Daily News

Good For Kids?

Inception
Short Story:
Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Dom Cobb, a thief skilled in the art of extraction -- that is, stealing secrets hidden deep in the subconscious during the dream state. Cobb's talent has made him a commodity in the treacherous world of espionage, but he's now a fugitive, and after losing everything he loves, he's given a second chance at a normal life. But first, he must complete one last crime: inception. Instead of extracting a secret, he has to implant one. With his team of specialists, Cobb attempts the unthinkable, but no amount of training can prepare them for what awaits.

What They're Saying:
"In this smart sci-fi puzzle box, director Christopher Nolan transports the audience to a dreamscape that begins with the familiar and then takes a radical, imaginative leap." - Us Weekly

"Like a dream, Nolan’s film fades swiftly in the light -- but while it lasts, it feels like there’s nothing more important to decipher." - Time Out

Good For Kids?
This sci-fi tale may fly over the heads of young viewers, but it's perfect for fans of suspenseful thrillers.

What They're Saying:
"I get a charge out of Cage's serious self-mockery, here as a wizard who'd never make the grade at Hogwarts in a fantasy that doesn't aim high, but hits the mark for summer entertainment." - Us Weekly

"The story, not to mention Cage's hair, is a little murky (can't a sorcerer conjure up a little shampoo?), but it doesn't matter: The fun here is in the action." - Seattle Times
