To tell the truth, I ended up feeling ... [full story]

About 43 percent of them want to purchase a home closer to work - up 10 percent from a similar survey last year. That points to an interesting trend.

FHA home mortgages - those insured by the Federal Housing Administration - may soon be a viable financing option for many more prospective borrowers. A current proposal, already passed by the House of Representatives, would raise the FHA loan limit to $417,000 in high-cost areas, reduce the minimum required down payment to 1.5 percent of the home's purchase price, and extend the maximum amortization term to 40 years. The new provisions are part of an ... [full story]

"December Boys" manages oddly to be Catholic but sexually charged, and both rather childishly. It also enshrines family values with sincere, shallow obviousness.   'DECEMBER BOYS' - Daniel Radcliffe, Teresa Palmer, James Fraser, Lee Cormie and Christian Byers star in 'December Boys,' the story of a memorable summer. CNS Photo courtesy of Lisa Tomasetti.  RATINGS 4 STARS - Excellent. 3 STARS - Worthy. 2 STARS - Mixed. 1 STAR - Poor. 0 - Forget It (a dog.) Daniel ... [full story]

A thriller set in Saudi Arabia, "The Kingdom" seems less ripped from the headlines than drawn from past thrillers based on previous headlines - but in a highly ballistic way, it often works remarkably well.   'THE KINGDOM' - FBI analyst Jason Bateman fights kidnappers in the political thriller 'The Kingdom.' CNS Photo courtesy of Frank Connor.  RATINGS 4 STARS - Excellent. 3 STARS - Worthy. 2 STARS - Mixed. 1 STAR - Poor. 0 - Forget ... [full story]
