All the Money in the World

December 25, 2017
All the Money in the World is a fascinating look at the true events of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III in 1973 when he was 16 years old. His mother, Gail (strongly played by Michelle Williams), is unrelenting, fighting for his life; she does everything in her power to make sure her son is [...]

The Man Who Invented Christmas

November 22, 2017

Dove Approved for All Ages

For as well known as is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, The Man Who Invented Christmas is an entirely new perspective on the Charles Dickens we mostly pictured in our minds as a stately older man. Dan Stevens brings this intriguing and marvelous character to life in a way we’ve probably not [...]

The Star

Dove Approved for All Ages

The Star is destined to become a classic! Not since The Prince of Egypt, which told the story of Moses, has a new major animated feature hit movie screens—that is, until now. The Star tells the story of the birth of Jesus but with a unique touch—it is through the eyes of several animals, which [...]

Priest 3D

May 13, 2011
"Priest" includes scenes of prayer and a character who literally takes a leap of faith near the end to try to save the day. A few scriptures are quoted as well including, "God is my refuge." Two priests, a man and a woman, agree that they want to please God, not necessarily the church. Christopher [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This story takes place in a dreary, desolate world of a post-apocalyptic environment. The animation is fantastic but sepia overtones and dark colors prevail over bright colors. The dark environment mirrors the story to some extent. The characters in this movie are named after numbers, such as 9, [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is a nice movie for young and old. Young Carl meets Ellie and both kids have an adventurous spirit. Young Ellie talks a lot more than Carl and mentions this to him. "You don't talk much," she says. Then she adds, "I like you!" The years pass and their friendship blossoms and leads to [...]

Must Love Dogs

July 29, 2005
I fail to see why producers of romantic comedies continually cross the line of acceptability for the family audience. Must Love Dogs is yet another example in a very long list of films that blows good taste right out of the water with foul language, sexual dialog, pre-marital sexual relationships [...]

Syriana

December 9, 2005
I found this film to be very slow moving and tremendously disjointed. It was very difficult to follow the relationships and connections between all the characters. In addition, the point of the story was not clear. It seems that Stephen Gaghan wants to convey that people will do extraordinary [...]

The Gospel of John (Visual Bible)

March 15, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is an incredible dramatized version of the Gospel of John. This is one of those films in which the ingredients mix well. The story to begin with is the greatest story ever told and then to mix it with a solid performance by Henry Ian Cusick as Jesus, along with Christopher Plummer as the [...]
