Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Oz the movie is great and powerful! It is a feast for the eyes, fuel for the imagination, and a trip to another world for two hours. James Franco is charming as Oscar Diggs, the carnival magician, also known as Oz. He is chased by the Strong Man and takes flight in his balloon. The balloon is [...]

Pineapple Express

August 6, 2008

The entire film is centered on two characters that smoke dope all the time and then find themselves getting into trouble. Duh! I could not relate to this type of humor but there must have been some [...]
