Dove Approved for Ages 12+

As one of Star Wars most beloved characters, it was only a matter of time before Han Solo got his own film.

Captain America: Civil War

May 6, 2016
“Captain America: Civil War” is an action-packed thriller with the good guys fighting the bad guys and -- oh, by the way, the Avengers fight among themselves, too! Therefore, the title "Civil War" is quite appropriate. William Hurt plays Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and, following some [...]

Mortdecai

January 23, 2015
"Mortdecai" is hit and miss with its comedy. There are times when the jokes and gags don't really work, but when they do they are laugh-out-loud funny. Two of these feet-tickling moments involve Johnny Depp. In one scene his character, Mortdecai, is cocky and sure of himself during a fencing match, [...]

Priest 3D

May 13, 2011
"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 [...]

The Tourist

December 10, 2010
Some people enjoy a big twist at the end of the movie. This film definitely offers one but after going along on the ride for over 100 minutes, I wasn't entirely happy with the ending. The film stretches the imagination just a bit but for the most part is entertaining and very funny, frequently, [...]

Legion

January 22, 2010
The Bible says in the book of Revelation that no one should add to or take away from the scriptures. This film does just that. In this version of the apocalypse, Michael the archangel (played by Paul Bettany) rebels against God because God is tired of man's evil ways and intends to obliterate [...]

Firewall

February 10, 2006
This boiler plate Harrison Ford action film has Ford again fighting the bad guys in gutsy fashion with grit and determination. Jack Stanfield (Ford) tries to outwit his family’s kidnappers to save their lives and his reputation. Much like his character in "Air Force One", Harrison, as [...]

Wimbledon

September 17, 2004
Against her father’s (Sam Neill) wishes, Lizzie spends extended time with Peter. Although sexual content of this film is limited, premarital sex is glorified as Lizzie and Peter reject her father’s moral counsel and choose to sleep together, having known each other for only a week. Lizzie [...]

Master and Commander: The Far Side of The World

November 14, 2003
This movie brought me back to the days of "Horatio Hornblower" type epics, and all the swash buckling on the high seas. The story is very good, but I wasn't pulled into the film emotionally: maybe I was seeing this as a "guy flick". Jack Aubrey had total control over his men and he noticed every [...]
