King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

May 12, 2017
"King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" features several nicely-crafted scenes of the legend, including the sword in the stone, Arthur wielding the famous sword, Excalibur. Even the round table is set in place near the conclusion of the movie. The shadow world Arthur enters is very vivid and stands out. [...]

Deliver Us from Evil (2014)

July 2, 2014
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Closed Circuit

August 28, 2013
Slow and steady is the phrase I would use to describe this cerebral thriller. When two members of a suspected terrorist's defense team realize that the evidence against their client is contrived, they work together, against instructions, to find out what really happened. There is very little [...]

Hanna

April 8, 2011
This movie has a strong enough story to sustain the viewer's interest for the 111-minute runtime as well as a capable young talent in actress Saoirse Ronan who plays the title role of Hanna. In addition it is one of those films which prompt some thinking while the viewer is watching which usually [...]

The Time Travelers Wife

August 14, 2009
This fantasy movie includes time travel, romance, death, and even a couple of reunions with loved ones who have passed, the reunion aided by the help of time travel. It is a story which is good at getting the viewer to think about deceased loved ones they would see again if they could. When Henry [...]

The Other Boleyn Girl

February 29, 2008
This is one of those films that may pleasantly surprise you. I don't know exactly what I expected, but I do know it is a better made film than I figured it would be. The acting is good, particularly that of Natalie Portman who plays Anne Boleyn. Anne is a cunning and quick learning young woman who [...]

Lucky You

May 4, 2007
Since a good many scenes in this film involve playing poker, it would have been nice had I known more about this particular card game. However, I know enough to know that it is an addiction with some people and this is one of the plot scenarios involving the character of Huck Cheever (Eric Bana). [...]

Munich

December 23, 2005
"Munich" is a very well done film that shows the talent and genius of Steven Spielberg. Like in "Schindler's List", Spielberg chooses to graphically show all the violence, sex and nudity that he envisions happening as the Israeli assassins go about their mission to eliminate those responsible for [...]
