Smurfs: The Lost Village

July 11, 2017

Dove Approved for All Ages

The lovable Smurfs are back. This time, Smurfette wants to find her purpose. It seems that all the male Smurfs in the village are named after their special trait—such as Clumsy, because, well, he is clumsy; Brainy, because he is smart; Hefty, because he is strong; and Grumpy—well, that is [...]

The Fate of the Furious

"The Fate of the Furious" is a highly entertaining and energy-filled movie. It features an action-packed opening car race between Dom (Vin Diesel) and a braggart, car crashes, close calls, a prison riot, several powerful fights, an icy villainess (Charlize Theron), and an incredible secret that Dom [...]

"Milton’s Secret" is a film about a grandfather's sound advice to his grandson to remember the importance of forgiveness.

Furious 7

"Furious 7" has an action-packed and fast-paced plot, as one would suspect. It also features the last performance of Paul Walker as Brian O'Conner; as most people probably know, Walker died near the end of making this movie. To the filmmakers' credit, they give him an appropriate send-off in the [...]

Adventures in Voice Acting – Volume 1

This is a fascinating DVD which looks at several aspects of voice acting, including the different types of voice acting. The DVD covers voice work in acting, books on tape or CD, commercials, narration, and so on. The program includes experienced voice work actors such as Michelle Rodriguez, Julie [...]


Fortunately, the "Horror" audience has a short attention span so I was spared sitting through another minute of this film. Believe me, the 96 minutes I was forced to watch were long enough. "BloodRayne" is a gore fest like I have never seen before. Bodies being cut to pieces; vampires sucking and [...]

The Fast And The Furious – Edited

September 23, 2003

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I was expecting this film to be terrible, but was surprised that it was actually pretty interesting and fun to watch. I had never seen anything with Vin Diesel and found his performance nicely understated and engaging. While I'm not a big car fan, this film has other elements that captured my [...]

Blue Crush

Although scenes show surfing enthusiasts of all ages, including some canine surfers, the film also emphasizes the danger of the sport. Skimpy bikinis and low-cut party dresses will no doubt add to young male interest. One scene features lengthy exposure of a used condom. Matt and Anne Marie quickly [...]
