Morton sends his latest movie review: I went to see 127 Hours after going back and forth for 2 days trying to determine if I could watch someone cut their arm off to survive.

In the Sunday edition of Dallas Morning News, Tod Robberson wrote an opinion piece about Coach Carter, and his work with the Turner 12: Carter founded the Turner 12 a decade ago with an eye toward guiding parents and their children to work as a team with a focus on excellent grades and college graduation. The program started with 12 middle school students from the 294-unit Turner Courts public housing project in South Dallas.
Morton saw the Argentine film, Anita, last night. He sends this review: If you see this film playing near you RUSH to see it! It starts slowly and takes a shattering turn about a tenth of the way into the movie. The rest keeps you on the edge. This lost girl/woman with DS encounters a world she has never been in or understood.
Morton sends his review of the independent film Get Low: I was expecting a good to very good movie based on the reviews. I thought my parents would relate and like it. They did, but for me it was much better than I expected. Each member of the ensemble was perfectly cast and the acting, story, filming, music was exceptional. Do yourself a favor, go see it. If you are a curmudgeon or reclusive you will like it even better!
