Bad Times at the El Royale

October 12, 2018
Bad Times at the El Royale is a well-written story of redemption and damnation with a lot of killing and swearing and a ton of suspense, where surprising things happen from the get-go, placing us on the edge of our seats. The acting is superb by everyone, and the twists and turns are fun and [...]

Tag

June 15, 2018
In a time where it would seem fiction is more desirable than the truth, Tag inherently makes the case for the other way around.

While switching back and forth between watching Susan Boyle sing in the talent contest that made her a household name and a game of cricket on another [...]

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