Dove Approved for All Ages

"Seven Days in Utopia" is one of those rare finds among motion pictures these days. It is refreshing to see a well-made feature film that has many simple faith messages in it without being preachy. Luke Chisolm is a young golfer who has lost his focus and needs a mentor. Along comes Johnny [...]

Get Low

This is a dramatic movie with a touch of comedy here and there. Robert Duvall gives a wonderful portrayal as Felix Bush, the hermit who has lived on 350 acres for 40 years away from everyone. There are very few people who actually know the details of his real story. Many townspeople have conjured [...]

Crazy Heart

Jeff Bridges gives a fantastic performance as a man who is battling the bottle. "Bad Blake" as he is called constantly smokes too and is a bit stubborn, but he is also likable. His many fans love him and ask him to perform their favorite songs as he travels from one small stop (such as at a bowling [...]

This apocalyptic movie is harrowing and yet has some moments of true inspiration.

We Own the Night

This story of bad guy turned good lacked any type of story arc. If the film had ended fifteen minutes in, it would have been no less of a surprise as when the film ended two hours later. The performances given by the usually stellar actors Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Wahlberg, and Robert Duvall, were [...]

Kicking and Screaming

This movie was similar to “Little Giants,” a 1994 film where a dad (Rick Moranis) started a football team with kids who weren’t good enough to play on his brother’s team who they eventually faced in the finals. Will Ferrell is his classic self and he combines with Mike Ditka (who makes his [...]

Open Range – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is a well made western, with a wonderful story line that depicts the age-old battle between good and evil. Costner and Duvall flow extremely well in their respective roles: Duvall's the boss, and that's also his screen name-"Boss", while Costner is the counterpoint in their characterizations [...]
