Dove Approved for Ages 12+

“We are all homeless – just workin’ our way home.” These words are aptly spoken by Denver Moore, who enters the film The Same Kind of Different as Me as a very disturbed homeless man, played poignantly by Djimon Hounsou in the true story of Ron and Deborah Hall’s (Greg Kinnear, Renee [...]

Case 39

I found the first quarter of this movie to be intriguing and interesting. A concerned social worker, up to her neck with 38 active cases, is handed case number 39. This particular case involves a young girl named Lily who is possibly being abused by her parents. When caseworker Emily Jenkins (Renee [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This was an awesome film based on a true story that really gets you to think about how far you will go to provide for your family. With the film being set 4 yrs into the great depression, It was really hard for me to comprehend how these families made it through and how they went for so long [...]

Cinderella Man

This film, directed by Ron Howard, is a wonderful true story about boxing hall of fame great, Jimmy "Cinderella Man" Braddock.

Shark Tale – Edited

Dove Approved for All Ages

This was an awesome movie. Pixar always does a great job with animation, but Shark Tale went way beyond any of their other works I have seen so far. The reef that all of the fish lived in was a coral reef with all of the modern additions of downtown New York. The cast was amazing. Never have I seen [...]
