actor: Robert Pattinson


Director Christopher Nolan is known for creating movies that force viewers to think deeply in order to grasp what is happening, and Tenet does not disappoint. Opening with an attack on an opera house in Kiev, the audience is given their first glimpse of what’s to come when a bullet hole in a wall [...]

Netflix’s The King

The Lighthouse

The Synopsis: The hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. The Review: The Lighthouse’s powerful aesthetic may focus, mystify, and nearly drown its audience. Filmed in gorgeous black-and-white with an almost square [...]

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two

The first "Twilight" movie received our Dove Seal but since then it has been either language or violence in the films which prevented us from awarding our Seal to the subsequent movies. In this case it is once again violence which prevents us from doing so for this, the final film in the series. [...]

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One

The first "Twilight" movie in this on-going saga received our Dove Seal but the next two did not and, unfortunately, "Breaking Dawn Part One" doesn't get it either.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

The first "Twilight" film received our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus, and with about ten minutes or so to go at the screening I saw, I thought this one might receive it too. Unfortunately, a character told another one to go to H..., and we don't award our Seal to movies which [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Editor's Note - This is a movie about Vampires but has no biblical mockery typically found in this type of picture. The reader is also cautioned that Dove makes no endorsement of the book series where this film finds its roots I have never been a fan of vampire movies, but I must say this was not [...]
