Over the last five years and counting and totaling over 450 films, the primary goal of "Every Movie Has a Lesson" has been to offer in-depth, professional quality movie reviews with life lessons in mind for as many current films as possible throughout each year.  This website's evolving blog page is where all the action happens.

From time to time, this website's writer will present his own unique take on movie trends, film commentary, and more through features, columns, and editorials ranging from film discussions, awards talk, "best of" lists, and seasonal previews.  All of this website's reviews and pieces are sorted here in a master archive.
