Evening

September 25, 2007
“Evening” was a beautifully written film with seamless transitions between the 1950's and present as a woman on her deathbed remembers and examines her complicated love life of years ago. While the language in the film clearly prevents it from receiving the Dove Family-Approved Seal, it was an [...]

Stardust

Filled with all the magic and mystery of an adventurous fairy tale, "Stardust" will entertain the viewer.

Its All About Love – Filtered

September 13, 2005
Allthough " It's All About Love" had some good ideas it was hard to follow and sort of left the viewer not quite sure what to think, at least it did for this reviewer. The film is set in the future: 2021. Famous Ice skater Elena wants to retire, but her family has other plans, because without her [...]
