A Monster in Paris

March 12, 2013

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie has terrific animation and some interesting characters including Emile and Maude, who are in love. The Paris scenes are awesome and the creature that is accidentally created in an experiment is fascinating. The over-sized bug causes panic on the streets of Paris. The action is plenty [...]

Edge of Darkness

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films.

The Constant Gardener

This was a disturbing film that portrayed how the helpless in the world can be taken advantage of by those with financial motives. Shot with flash backs, and visual memories, the plot was slightly hard to follow. Much of the film's offensive content could have been removed without changing the [...]

Silver City

January 11, 2005
Sayles makes no secret of his dislike for the Bush administration. Dicky is a parody of the president, stumbling through speeches. He answers questions from the press, but one of his advisers is always close at hand to prompt him. Bigotry, greed and dirty politics contradict the family’s public [...]
