Grudge Match

December 25, 2013
"Grudge Match" is a slow moving movie that tries too hard to create a story that the audience will sympathize with. Unfortunately, the filmmakers do this with almost every character in the film. Due to the long back stories the main plot of two over-the-hill boxers facing off against each other [...]

Charlie St Cloud

July 30, 2010
This is a movie which deals with death. Some of the moments on screen will cause the viewer to question whether or not what is happening can be taken at face value, or if it is symbolic or even a dream.

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Bless the Child

August 11, 2000
The Bible has all the material needed for movies about Satan, cults and the end times, but many filmmakers would rather push cockamamie storylines that confuse and mislead. “Bless the Child” makes a point that our society lacks spirituality. It even contains biblical references and positive [...]
