The Mule

December 25, 2018
The Synopsis: A 90-year-old horticulturist and WWII veteran is caught transporting $3 million worth of cocaine through Michigan for a Mexican drug cartel. The Review Wisdom may certainly come with age. When someone lives a long-enough life, they have the opportunity to learn from successes and [...]

Trouble with the Curve

September 21, 2012
When a film opens with the lead character standing in front of his toilet peeing, you know you're in trouble. Clint Eastwood plays a gruff man named Gus who has a strained relationship with his daughter Mickey. He is aging fast and losing his eye sight too. Since his job is to scout potential MLB [...]

Gran Torino

January 9, 2009
Wow! What a movie to try to describe. Talk about virtues in a film and yet our great concerns here at Dove for an audience all at the same time.

"Paint Your Wagon" combines to make a comical musical western. Just that idea can make you laugh when you add these two men to the mix, In which both sing and [...]

Space Cowboys

August 4, 2000
To me it’s not their combined ages that’s the big deal, but their combined talent. They are pros and fun to watch as they good-naturedly spoof old age and themselves. Alas, I cannot recommend the film for family viewing due to misuse of God’s name on seven different occasions. Also [...]

Escape from Alcatraz

March 9, 1999
When Frank Morris (Clint Eastwood) lands in Alcatraz, it doesn't take him long to realize it's not the kind of place he wants to stay at for long. Alcatraz has a record of no one having ever successfully escaped. Morris decides he can be the exception and he enlists the help of a few other [...]
