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 [...]

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 [...]
