Melinda and Melinda – Filtered

October 5, 2005
Two playwrights give their own version of a story, one viewed as a tragedy, the other as a comedy. The story begins when Melinda appears at the door of a longtime friend right in the middle of a dinner party. Each version of the story varies drastically. As a tragedy, Melinda is an alcoholic who [...]

Finding Neverland – Edited

June 28, 2005

Dove Approved for All Ages

This was definitely the most wholesome, entertaining, and enjoyable movie that I have ever seen. It told a story of creativity, compassion, and complete selflessness while still remaining simple and childlike. It's the story of the man who wrote Peter Pan and how he got all of his ideas from a lady [...]

Melinda and Melinda

I enjoyed how this movie was approached, presenting the two stories as a split narrative. Mr. Allen also shows his creativeness through how his characters endure many similar situations in each narrative. However, other than some Will Ferrell antics I did not find this film very entertaining. This [...]

Finding Neverland

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is by far the best performance of Johnny Depp's career in my opinion. Of course he has had some good roles in "Edward Scissorhands," "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," "Sleepy Hollow" and some others, but I felt more drawn into his role as James Barrie than I have any of his others. Never knowing [...]

Man on Fire

Man on Fire shows corruption being punished and key characters struggling with God to understand life, but this one’s not for the weak of stomach. There’s lots of killing, and most of it is bloody. Creasy is driven to kill those involved in the kidnapping of young Pita. He dismembers a man to [...]

Cowboys and Angels – Edited

Dove Approved for All Ages

Like the television series "Touched By An Angel", this film also tells the story of Angels that try to help people with their trying times. Unlike the television series, this one doesn't really include any dialog about God or what His desires for the person's life. It is pretty much the angels [...]

Pitch Black

The language is filthy, with one coarse word used more times than I could count. Much of the rest of the dialogue consisted of various obscenities and expletives, including extremely foul language from the mouths of children. There is a positive portrayal of a Muslim. This character prays for [...]

2 Hearts

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

2 Hearts holds unexpected surprises created by significant plot twists. As we follow two characters’ lives that are not seemingly connected with each other, we cannot imagine why these stories are parallel. But the endearing characterization and solid acting, especially that of Jacob Elordi [...]

Cowboys and Angels

Here we have a quirky little movie about love and relationships. Danny just endured a break-up a day before his wedding and here he is at his little sister's wedding with his best friend. But to his surprise just before his toast as best man he finds out that his new brother-in-law was also part of [...]
