Seven Days in Utopia

September 2, 2011

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

July 30, 2010
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

February 12, 2010
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 [...]

The Road

November 25, 2009
This apocalyptic movie is harrowing and yet has some moments of true inspiration. Viggo Mortensen is terrific as a father who protects his son and is always in search of food during the bleak aftermath of a cataclysmic event which has wiped out most of human life on earth. Mortensen's character, [...]

Four Christmases

November 26, 2008
Many people in today's world may relate to this comedy. If you come from divorced parents, you definitely will understand where the plot is heading. Brad and Kate each are in that classification so of course that makes four separate Christmases. But they usually lie to their families so they don't [...]

We Own the Night

October 12, 2007
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

May 13, 2005
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 [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is a wonderful family film and New Line is to be commended. There are many times where they could have wondered off into non family-friendly territory, but they did not. They took the high road in this superb film about getting older, finding usefulness in old age and in believing in people. [...]

A Shot at Glory

May 3, 2002
Along with the obscene language, a fairly explicit sex scene further justifies the films ‘R’ rating. It’s tragic that this film includes material that earns an R rating, since a lesser rating would have opened up a huge potential audience among pre-teens and teens. However, the film has its [...]

Sixth Day

November 17, 2000
Arnold Schwarzenegger was interviewed on the Today Show moments before I saw the screening of Sixth Day. He was touting this picture as an action, sci-fi, FAMILY movie. In fact, he bragged about taking "all of my children except my three year-old with me to the screening." Arnold, Arnold, [...]
