Geostorm

October 20, 2017
The stage is set for the audience, and it's a stage that might feel close to home for many: by the year 2019, chaotic storms of titanic magnitude have torn much of the world apart, and the future seems desperately bleak. In a last-ditch effort to save humanity, world leaders managed to work [...]

Mother!

September 15, 2017
"Mother!" brings Dove to something of a stalemate. We are at a crossroads with this picture. It is a film so challenging, so startling in its subject matter and message. In fact, it is shattering to consider that the philosophical guns it chooses to stick to are all at once haunting (and not for [...]

Run All Night

March 13, 2015
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R and PG-13 rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we [...]

Planes: Fire and Rescue

July 18, 2014

Dove Approved for All Ages

Animation is so much fun to watch these days. They take objects like cars, trucks, trains and planes, turn them into talking personalities for everyone to fall in love with. The interesting part of all these types of movie is that the filmmakers are telling wonderful stories full of interesting [...]

Gravity (2013)

October 4, 2013
What a story this would make if it were really to happen. The viewer can't help but think that while watching Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) as she undergoes one trying test after another after space debris interrupts a mission she is on. After the Russians strike one of their own satellites it [...]

Phantom

March 1, 2013
This movie could have been more than what it is. Ed Harris plays a burned out captain of a Soviet missile submarine during the Cold War and he is on his last command. The captain has occasions of hallucinations including those of dying men and of blood. And, to boot, a new sailor is on board and [...]

The Way Back

January 21, 2011
This movie is based on Slavomir Rawicz's work "The Long Walk," which is a memoir. The film is picturesque for sure. A group of soldiers walk a decidedly long time in scenes of beautiful terrains and backgrounds and at times a glowing sun is their beautiful backdrop. However, this story of war [...]

National Treasure: Book of Secrets

December 21, 2007

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

If you are a fan of "National Treasure" you won't be disappointed by this engaging and clever sequel. Once again the audience is taken on a treasure hunt through history, this time to clear the name of our hero's ancestors. Along the way, we find clues in plain site and some in more remote [...]

Gone Baby Gone

October 19, 2007
Apparently in Boston, it is impossible for anyone to complete a sentence without using the F word. After only a few minutes, I was unable to keep up with the count so I just stopped. There were several plot twists to this film that writer Affleck managed to tie up in the end but in this reviewer's [...]

A History of Violence

September 23, 2005
This film should have been NC 17 in my opinion. It was so graphic in the sex and violence areas which really ruined the film for me. What could have been a somewhat interesting plot became secondary in scope and importance to the showing of soft pornographic sex scenes and gruesome violence. I [...]
