Emma. (2020)

March 3, 2020
Jane Austen's 1815 classic novel, Emma, is recreated in this 2020 film as a story of selfish romance that spins out of control for pretty, wealthy, independent Emma. Taken from the novel, Jane Austen writes that, "Seldom, very seldom does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can [...]

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

"The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" hits on important themes in an entertaining way. One of the themes is a play on the old adage, "There's no time like the present." The words are reversed by a character into, "There is no present like time." And for the many senior citizens who abide in The [...]

I, Frankenstein

This story is intelligently written and features a belief in God, angels, archangels, and demons. Aaron Eckhart plays an interesting Frankenstein or, as Queen Leonore (Miranda Otto), High Queen of the Gargoyle order, calls him, "Adam." Eckhart's creature is both sympathetic and powerfully violent [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Arthur Christmas" takes the viewer on an imaginative ride to the North Pole and beyond! It features great production values and a talented cast. This movie makes the point that Christmas is a season about giving and it does so in style! The "mission" is to make sure that Christmas goes off [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

This movie is safe and cute. It is a film which is suitable for all ages. When it appears that Saber Technology has possibly sold some technological information to the Middle East, guinea pig agents Darwin and Blaster and female agent Juarez and the rest of the gang become secret agents to spy out [...]

Pirate Radio

This is definitely a film about heathenism. It is pretty much sex, drugs (mainly alcohol and smoking with the mention of other drugs), and rock and roll. From what I understand, much of this music could not even be played on the British radio stations during this historical time frame. But the [...]


This is an intriguing film to be sure, but there sure isn't much suspense, is there? We all know that Hitler died by his own hand so the assassination team failed in their efforts. I don't know a lot about the history of this story but I have read that some dramatic license has been taken with this [...]

Hot Fuzz

July 31, 2007
There are three words that come to mind after screening this film: funny, black, and violent. It is funny in spots with some clean humor, such as an extreme case when police officer Angel throws a spray can at a shoplifter he is chasing, and the can lands on top of the thief's head and knocks him [...]
