PG-50+ Movie Reviews
Beyond 50 only recommends films that are creatively responsible to reveal the finest qualities of the human spirit; allow you to think and feel deeply about life; make your heart soar; and champion human rights.

Monsters vs. Aliens
Monsters vs. Aliens (in 3-D)
If you need a good "pick me up," this movie will do the trick. It's absolutely hilarious! The retro-style film features nerdy monsters resembling those from B-rated, sci-fi movies of the 1950s: The Creature from the Black Lagoon (The Missing Link), The Blob (B.O.B.), The Attack of the 50-Foot Woman (Ginorca), The Fly (Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.), and Mothra of "Godzilla" (Insectosaurus). Instead of attacking the innocent, they are enlisted by General W.R. Monger to save the world from the alien megalomaniac, Gallaxhar, along with his Alien Robot and army of clones. You'll want to see the 3-D version. (In theatres everywhere; Genre: Animation, Action/Adventure, Comedy; Running Time: 1 hr., 34 sec.)



AnvilAnvil! The Story of Anvil
You can't help but make comparisons of this documentary to the classic, "This is Spinal Tap." At 14, best friends Robb Reiner and Steve "Lips" Kudlow, start a heavy metal band called Anvil. They experience a brief flash of fame in Canada during the early 1980s, touring with Whitesnake and Bon Jovi. They go from spectacular beginnings to obscurity through the decades. The friends keep their pact to rock together forever. The film is funny, inspirational and poignant. (In select theatres; Genre: Arthouse/Foreign, Documentary; Running Time: 1 hr., 30 min.)



Dr. Bronner's Magic SoapboxDr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox
This is a fascinating documentary on master soapmaker Dr. Emmanuel Bronner, a self-proclaimed rabbi and Albert Einstein's nephew. After escaping the mental institution, he created a pure castile, all-vegetable soap formula that is still popular today and can be found in health food stores. The product's famous label is a "sea of words" about his philosophy "The Moral ABC" and the saying, "To Unite All Mankind Free." In the film, his son explains about the unique legacy he left behind and enduring 15 orphanages and foster homes as a child. Currently, the family business brings in millions of dollars in profits every year. (Available on DVD; Genre: Documentary; Running Time: 88 min.)




Quantum HoopsQuantum Hoops
This is a perfect film for basketball fans who can't wait for the NBA Finals. Released back in 2007 as a documentary, you'll be rooting for this awful team of academically gifted brainiacs from Cal Tech. They have one week left in their 2006 season to break a 21-year losing streak (over 240 consecutive losses). The last time their school won a single game was back in 1985. Cal Tech's team has more high school valedictorians than varsity players. And, the school boasts 31 Nobel Prize winers - the highest ratio of winners to alumni in the world. You'll have to see the nail-biting results of their last game. (Available on DVD; Genre: Documentary, Sports; Running Time: 88 min.)

Jacqueline FreemanJacqueline Freeman:
Friendly Haven Rise Farm

Run by Jacqueline and Joseph Freeman, their biodynamic farm in Venersborg,WA. is based on the principles of Rudolph Steiner, an Austrian social philosopher of the twentieth century. Steiner understood the Earth to be a living, interconnected organism. Based on a more spiritual understanding, the farm should be a self-contained organism that functions like a microcosm.

The Great Depression Ahead
Financial Doom

For Beyond 50's "Finance" talks, listen to Harry S. Dent. He is a nationally renowned economic forecaster with an uncanny success at predicting economic trends over the last 30 years. It's all in the cycles that keep repeating. Dent recognizes that our economy goes through 39 - 40 year peak cycles: 1929, 1968, and now somewhere in 2008 - 2009. These are mostly by generational (population) peaks in spending. The Baby Boomer spending peak is coming to an end!

Take Advantage of Harry S. Dent's Forecasts:
  • Stock prices start to crash again between mid- and late 2009 into late 2010, and likely finally bottom around mid-2012 - between Dow 3,800 and 4,500.
  • The economy enters a deeper depression between mid-2010 and early 2011, likely extending off and on into late 2012 and mid-2013.
  • Gold and precious metals will appear to be a hedge at first, but will ultimately collapse as well after mid- to late 2010.
  • A first major stock rally, likely between mid-2012 and mid-2017, will be followed by a final setback through late 2019/early 2020.
  • The next broad-based global bull market will be from 2020 - 2023 into 2035 - 2036.
As for Obama's economic stimulus package, Dent believes that it will only prolong the Depression. Japan's government did the same as Obama with their economy and they've failed to turn it around.

Bird Watching with Beyond 50
Great Blue Heron

We encourage you to get outdoors for your own Spring Break to view migratory birds at a wetlands or wildlife refuge near you. We'll be heading over to the Shorebird Sanctuary within the Sauvie Island Wildlife Area, a wintering area of thousands of waterfowl, raptors and songbirds.

For a fascinating conversation, we'll be calling on Irene Pepperberg to be on the show. Through her 30-year, loving relationship with Alex, a gray parrot, she unlocked the hidden world of animal intelligence. Alex's bird brain was the size of a shelled walnut, yet he possessed the potential for language, consciousness and anything remotely comparable to human intelligence. He could add, sound out many words and understand abstract concepts.

When Alex was dying in 2007, his last message to Irene was, "You be good. I love you."
