Game Night

February 23, 2018
Game Night is a witty, laugh-out-loud movie that will have you nodding your head while thinking, "Yes, I can relate to that." This imaginative storyline features Gary (Jesse Plemons), the off-beat (everyone has known someone like this guy) next door neighbor to Max (Jason Bateman) and his wife [...]

Doctor Strange

November 4, 2016
"Doctor Strange" is a special effects-laden extravaganza that features a commanding performance by Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, the Marvel comics' surgeon who is endowed with mystical powers. In the movie, as well as the comic, he is arrogant, making it difficult for his former [...]

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

Aloha

May 29, 2015
"Aloha" is about the relationships a person leaves behind and the relationships that could be. And in this film it's also about surprises. The movie features a strong cast in Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin, and Bill Murray. Cooper plays Brian Gilcrest, a military [...]

This one has some funny moments for sure. You have to understand the plot to understand the humor though. In this one, Gil Pender is a romantic, a writer who dreams of living in Paris.

Morning Glory

November 10, 2010
One of the strengths of this picture is the acting. Rachel McAdams plays Becky Fuller, TV producer, as a flighty and lonely-for-love girl with a tough side when necessary and she pulls it off. She even stands up to Harrison Ford's character, a legendary TV anchorman named Mike Pomeroy, so [...]

Sherlock Holmes

December 25, 2009

State of Play

April 17, 2009
This film was full of suspense, drama and action; all things that make a cerebral thriller worth watching. Intrigue and mystery are certainly exciting elements in good filmmaking. Unfortunately, the plot twists and turns several times but hey, they had two hours to fill so I guess the director [...]

Red Eye

August 19, 2005
This film is very well written, but it fails to cause any anxiety. I just wasn’t convinced that Lisa was ever in any real danger, but the movie is well produced. Also, Cillian Murphy delivers a good performance as the villain. Some of his facial expressions and antics would be intimidating to [...]
