'The Best of Me' saves Sparks' worst for last

Imagine that someone pulled a drain plug on a majestic mountain lake. At first, you wouldn't notice anything amiss, save for a low gurgle echoing from deep under the water. But as the water line dropped, exposing the soggy shore, your heart would drop, and by the time the lake vanished away, leaving sludge and long-forgotten trash and desperate fish flopping around gasping for life, you'd realize the tragedy before you.

Stay-at-home moms: They're doing more than what you think

I have to admit that, before I became a stay-at-home mom, I had some preconceived ideas of what that job would be like: dinner on the table by 6PM, time spent making crafts and cherished pieces of artwork with the little ones, the house completely organized and just general peace and order all around. Needless to say, I was in for a rude awakening when I actually got the privilege of becoming a stay-at-home mom. I would describe my days now as beautiful chaos. As much as I try to have some semblance of order in the home, it doesn ...

Holy Blu-ray! 'Batman' arrives on DVD!

The fall television season is flush with comic book adaptations, including the premiere of the Batman prequel "Gotham" and the latest version of "The Flash," and returning favorites "Arrow" and "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." I've seen them all, and they're all chock full of geeky goodness.

Classic themes get a visual flair in 'Book of Life'

The Halloween season has already served up one macabre option for kids and animation fans in the creepy Olde English quirk-fest "The Boxtrolls."

Three secrets to a lasting marriage

The reality is marriage isn't always bliss. Marriage is about ups and downs. Some couples are ready to give up on each other when times are too difficult. They believe walking away from the marriage is easier than confronting the problems as a team. But if the love is pure and strong, then love can overcome anything. And if you have children, walking away from marriage without trying to make it work can set a bad example for them.

Three reasons you’ll almost love 'The Book of Life'

"The Book of Life" has been a project I've been pulling for since I first heard Guillermo del Toro was attached to a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) project. The colors and beautiful philosophy behind the holiday have always felt like a great setting for storytellers, and del Toro's history of fantastical visuals and his own personal love for the traditions set up all the right ingredients for a potentially amazing animated adventure.
