Penguins of Madagascar

March 17, 2015

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Penguins of Madagascar" is fun for the whole family and definitely a laugh-out-loud movie! The penguins' facial expressions are priceless and their antics are nonstop. The penguins explore locations from Antarctica to Venice and Rio De Janeiro to Shanghai, and they share a lot of excitement along [...]

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

Not to be outdone by "Snow White and the Huntsman", this adaptation of the well-known children's fable "Hansel and Gretel" begins where the original story ends. The wicked witch's plan to fatten up the two children before eating them is foiled. Then, the bloodbath begins. The animation over opening [...]

Lockout

In the latest episode of "Star Wars" meets "Escape from New York", the president's daughter is stranded on a space ship/penile colony where the inmates have just taken over. At first I was amazed that Irish actors could get rid of their brogues but that didn't last long. Once the action took hold, [...]

Jurassic Park – The Lost World – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

As once again the dinosaurs rule the island. I have a hard time watching these kinds of movies because at the end I feel like I ran the Boston Marathon. This movie has great effects as did the first one. As a Sci-fi buff you would enjoy this film and as always the suspense it puts you in as you [...]

Windtalkers – Edited

September 11, 2003
Like Saving Private Ryan, this film is inspired by a true story. Also like Saving Private Ryan, this film is graphically violent. I guess that is the nature of war. This film encompasses so much about the war in the Pacific, how soldiers handle different aspects of war, the bigotry of the times, [...]

Bad Company

Typical of action films, violence is plentiful with numerous shootouts, fights and chases. However, most of the shootings and fights avoid graphic wounds. When Jake returns to his hotel room, the silhouette of his brother’s girlfriend is seen in his shower. She is later shown in skimpy underwear. [...]

Dancer in the Dark

This isn’t your mother’s musical. Don’t look for the happy ending with the lead finding romance and dancing off into the sunset. It couldn’t be drearier had Kafka and Lenin collaborated on the screenplay. The lead even kills a man and is put on trial. If found guilty, she will hang. [...]
