In theaters this week, an impossible journey to the core of the human heart in the true life story of a family swept away in one of the worst natural disasters in our lifetime.
Saturday, January 5
A family of five begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking for some fun in the sun. Soon their holiday turns into a nightmare as a giant tsunami rises up from the ocean and sweeps them away in "The Impossible." Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor head up this star-studded cast that tells the true story of one family's experience during the devastating 2004 tsunami that devoured Southeast Asia. The acting, though there is very little dialogue, is amazing and the special effects, especially in the first 45 minutes, are mind-boggling. Watts is being considered for an Oscar for her performance but the kids, in my opinion, steal every scene in which they appear.

Like many Republicans, Price did not agree with the compromise.
Conservative Rep. Tom Price (R-District 6) voted against the last-minute fiscal cliff deal passed by Congress over New Year's, according to govtrack.us. A real solution includes both revenue increases and spending reductions," Price recently said on CNN's "State of the Union." Price isn't the only member of Congress - especially among the GOP - to believe the compromise was ill-fitted to the need and will only lead to more hard decisions soon. The deal raises taxes on individual incomes over $400,000 and over $450,00 for household incomes and a portion of estates more than $5 million. The compromise is said to allow Congress to have more time to work on government expenditures.
