Dove Approved for All Ages

"Pete's Dragon" will inspire a sense of awe in your family. It is a wonderful movie experience. The live action is seamlessly mixed with CGI, and it's so realistic that anyone might think a dragon named Elliot could fly around somewhere in the woods. The movie is today's "E.T." It has similarities [...]

A Walk in the Woods

"A Walk in the Woods" is witty and features lots of clever banter between the main characters, Bill Bryson and Stephen Katz. Robert Redford and Nick Nolte are an unlikely pair, with Redford playing the straight man, author Bryson, and Nolte providing the comedy relief of the movie. It is as much a [...]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is a must see movie! I knew I was in for a good time when in an early scene Steve Rogers says he has been reading the internet and catching up and he has a "to do" list which includes seeing "Rocky" and "Star Wars"! This film features an action-packed journey [...]

Lions for Lambs

This film could best be described as a day in the war on Iraq. The film follows three characters during the course of one pivotal day in the war on terror. While films like this can be hard to follow, how each of the characters are connected is thoughtfully done. Each of the high profile actors and [...]

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid – Filtered

June 6, 2006
"Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" is your typical western with two men running from the law for robbing banks. The film was not approved because of the fact that the men never show remorse for what they do and they keep doing it for fun. There are many instances where fornication is implied. [...]

An Unfinished Life – Filtered

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Fantastic! Fantastic! I thought this was a really great movie about the power of forgiveness and learning to live life. There were a couple of fights in the movie- one where a woman gets hit by her boyfriend, and a few more where guys hit guys, but overall, this was a really clean film. It’s well [...]

All The Presidents Men – Filtered

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Persistent Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein try and find out the whole story behind Watergate. With doors slammed in their face, hang-ups, and "no comments," their job is very stressful. This movie is extremely slow and seemed to repeat itself on some plot points. It is a [...]

Unfinished Life, An

“An Unfinished Life” is a story about the pain, anguish and depression caused by holding onto bitterness in the wake of personal loss. In the case of Einar and his daughter-in-law Jean, it is due to the tragic death of his son, her husband, Griffin. In the case of Mitch, it’s about the [...]

Spy Game – Edited

Dove Approved for All Ages

The original movie was rated R for language, some violence and brief sexuality. Because it was categorized as a thriller, Hollywood thinks that it could not be interesting if they didn't throw a little crudeness around. But this edited version has taken a fast-paced and intriguing story, taken out [...]

The Clearing

July 10, 2004
Lacking drama and suspense, the plot is simple and moves at a slow pace. A man is kidnapped, and his wife with the help of the FBI try to find him. There is no real message, either good or bad. The film keeps moving from present to past and then to the present again with little warning. As R-rated [...]
