Baby Driver

June 28, 2017
Baby Driver is something of the perfect vehicle for [director] Edgar Wright's filmmaking techniques. By mixing up musical styles and genres and setting the action to each accordingly, he proves that, as a filmmaker, he is a classicist in his inspirations, but a full-throttled progressive in his [...]

Nine Lives

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Nine Lives" is a hilarious comedy about a man who is a big mogul in almost everything in his life. He is so busy with his corporations that he does not have time for the real things in life like his family.

Gambling can be addictive and become a serious problem for some people. The characters in this film think they have it figured out because they are not "gambling", they are "counting cards and playing a system with definite rules". But the glitz, glamor and high of winning gets to even the most [...]

Superman Returns (2006)

June 28, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This film is pretty good. In my opinion it is a bit excessive at times in the special effects department; also, the story didn't settle down much, as there seemed to be too much to tell. Then again, Superman has been gone for five years in the film, and off the screen for many more years than that, [...]

Beyond the Sea

January 7, 2005
Kevin Spacey did an excellent job writing, directing and acting in this film about Bobby Darin. The film is filled with wonderful music and sentiment. Darin overcomes a background of growing up without a father, being poor and having a bad heart. He shouldn't have lived to 15 much less 37. This a [...]

The United States Of Leland

April 9, 2004
The film addresses the pain of this world and how people choose to cope with it. It grapples with the sanctity of human life through its depiction of real-life events having to do with euthanasia. Drug use and drinking occurs throughout the film but is depicted as destructive. And there is [...]

His boat the "Endurance" was aptly named from his family motto, “by endurance we conquer.” After their ship became frozen and was unable to go any further, the explorer and his men needed [...]
