Red Sparrow

March 2, 2018
Raw, racy, and containing violence that will cause some to recoil. These are the thoughts I have after reviewing Red Sparrow. Not that Jennifer Lawrence doesn't give her usual strong performance. She plays Dominika Egorova, who was a prima ballerina in Russia until a terrible accident leaves her [...]

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 [...]

Passengers

December 21, 2016
"Passengers" is a fascinating movie that works especially well due to its lead actors, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Left in other actor's hands, it probably doesn't hold the audience's attention as well. Lawrence and Pratt have chemistry in this "Titanic"-like story, with the plot taking [...]

Joy

December 25, 2015
"Joy" is based on a true story about a young woman (played by Jennifer Lawrence) who believes in herself when no one else, other than her grandmother, does. Joy has been inventive since she was a child and even invented a better dog collar for her dog so it wouldn't choke the dog like the last one [...]

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

November 21, 2014

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" is powerful, dramatic, and full of strong acting. Jennifer Lawrence does an excellent job as the main character, Katniss Everdeen, whose pain in fighting against the Capitol government and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is clearly demonstrated. Katniss [...]

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

November 22, 2013
This follow up film to "The Hunger Games" is a darker version than the first one. The Capitol is determined to keep hope down amongst the people and particularly Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) who is the symbol of that hope. President Snow (Donald Sutherland) has former victors meet in the [...]
