Left Behind (2014)

October 3, 2014

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Left Behind" is a gripping and dramatic movie that will reel you in! It is well directed and features a strong script based on the book by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. A previous film based on the book and starring Kirk Cameron arrived in theaters in 2001. This movie stars Nicolas Cage and [...]

The Croods

March 22, 2013

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie is laugh-out-loud funny and the kids I screened it with did just that. In fact, the film is rated PG and indeed we are awarding the Dove Seal for ages twelve plus, due to a lot of slapstick and fantasy violence, but it is based on the days of cave men and the violence isn't to be taken [...]

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

February 17, 2012
Ghost Rider is certainly an action/adventure and the chases and killings never stop. From start to finish we see people shot, blown up, consumed in flames, rot to dust. If someone isn't dying or killing, they're chasing each other in cars, on motor cycles or demonizing industrial grinding/drilling [...]

Drive Angry 3D

February 25, 2011
Nicolas Cage once again takes on a supernatural theme and if you like seeing characters that are reckless, then he's your man. The film begins with a scene of a bridge out of Hell and the supernatural elements continue. His character, Milton, has broken out of Hell in order to seek out revenge [...]

Season of the Witch

January 7, 2011
This film is filled with action and is entertaining to watch but from a family point of view, it falls short. It is strong in the violence area, featuring a few scenes of witches being hanged and then dropped into the water to make sure they're dead, along with some bloody sword battles and [...]

This "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" - also by Disney - is a PG-rated live action-adventure film by the team of Jerry Bruckheimer and Nicholas [...]

Astro Boy

October 23, 2009

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Astro Boy" will propel your family into a wonderful world of imagination. This movie soars. I found it to be entertaining, funny, imaginative, and I enjoyed the ninety plus minutes immensely. Astro Boy, like many of us, faces his doubts and wonders if he truly has what it takes to make a [...]

Knowing

March 20, 2009
Nicolas Cage plays science teacher John Koestler in this action-thriller which is just as much a mystery tale. A certain young girl at William Dawes Elementary named Lucinda Embry had written down several codes on a piece of paper which was included with other students' drawings in a time capsule [...]

Bangkok Dangerous

September 5, 2008
This film manages to display some of the beauty of Bangkok, but it is a letdown in several ways. First of all, we never really learn why Joe (Nicolas Cage) is an assassin. We just know he is paid well to kill but when he meets a deaf girl in Bangkok, and a young man who assists him, he begins to [...]
