The Loft

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 [...]

Walking with Dinosaurs

March 25, 2014

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Walking with Dinosaurs" is an intriguing movie that is both educational and entertaining. With the many computer generated dinosaurs, this film portrays a realistic view of one little dinosaur's life in Alaska many many years ago. The nice thing is each new type of creature is introduced with a [...]

Riddick

I found the plot in this movie to be interesting and some of the action sequences, especially in which Riddick (Vin Diesel) takes on sea monsters and alien creatures, to be captivating. It really is like an alien world as he takes on creatures never seen on this earth to be sure. They are fierce [...]

Dredd 3D

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 [...]

Priest 3D

"Priest" includes scenes of prayer and a character who literally takes a leap of faith near the end to try to save the day. A few scriptures are quoted as well including, "God is my refuge." Two priests, a man and a woman, agree that they want to please God, not necessarily the church. Christopher [...]

Red

We learn in this movie that "Red" stands for "Retired, Extremely Dangerous". This speaks of Frank Moses (Bruce Willis), a former CIA agent whose quiet life won't last long. He spends his time phoning a woman at work whom he enjoys speaking with, Sarah (Mary Louise Parker), and soon she is in the [...]

Star Trek (2009)

Young James T. Kirk is thrown a challenge by a commanding officer. "Your father was captain of a ship for twelve minutes and saved over 800 lives before dying. What are you going to do?" "Star Trek" is back and the plot revolves around the beginning of the friendships and the first voyage of the [...]

Pathfinder

July 31, 2007
The idea behind “Pathfinder” could have made for a pretty decent movie; unfortunately, the plot wasn’t enough to distract from the cheesy dialog, bad acting, and obnoxious scenes of Vikings slaughtering Native Americans. I found it slightly offensive that the only person who can protect the [...]

Doom

February 7, 2006
"Doom" was one of the first "first person" shoot 'um up videos games for computers. The player sees everything from the gun barrel point of view and works their way through a hi-tech maze shooting everything in sight. Over the years, as computers have become faster and graphics have improved, you [...]

Doom – Filtered

February 7, 2006
Nothing can make "Doom" family friendly. The story follows a marine corps in the future which is given the task of securing an archaeological dig on Mars. The cast, including The Rock, do an excellent job of being psychotic and disgusting while upholding the banner of a military operation. [...]
