Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Intelligently written and thought-provoking, this well-acted drama stirringly deals with the topic of God and why He allows the tragic moments and suffering in our lives. The story begins with two con artist twins, Micah (Luke Benward) and Rachel (Hannah Kasulka), who are great at fleecing people [...]

Aladdin (2019)

Dove Approved for All Ages

The Review: Despite the presence of a big blue genie claiming to be all-powerful but not all-knowing (how exactly does that work?), there are biblical principles at work in Disney's Aladdin. For starters, selflessness wins. The one who seeks power enslaves himself. The one who selflessly gives [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Big Hero 6" is ingenious, imaginative, action-packed, and funny! The plot revolves around a character named Hiro and the large robot Baymax, a robot that had the kids in the screening audience laughing with delight on more than one occasion. In fact, the adults were laughing as well. Baymax does [...]

Serenity

December 20, 2005
Never having seen Firefly on TV, I knew it might be somewhat difficult to follow who was who. The rest of the audience didn't seem to have a problem and I figured they must be the cult following of the series. This sci-fi adventure had a good story line and many good effects. What I enjoyed most [...]

Serenity – Filtered

December 20, 2005
If you are a Star Trek/ Star Wars lover, "Serenity" is right up your alley. It's too bad the producer didn't give us a film we could approve. It took a long time to get involved in the plot and even then it was average. There was a lot of killing and fighting in the movie and some pretty grossly [...]

I Robot

I, Robot is easily one of the best science-fiction movies in recent years. Will Smith carries the film, adding comic relief and present-day sensibilities to Asimov’s futuristic fantasy world. The story is solid and entertaining but also deals with the interesting issues surrounding computers and [...]
