actor: Ryan Reynolds


July 19, 2013
R.I.P.D. is a movie based upon a comic book series where dead cops come back to life assuming another body to capture or extinguish "deados" in order to save the world from rotting. The word "deados" refers to people who have died but cheat the system and remain on earth. R.I.P.D. officers and [...]

Safe house

February 10, 2012
I actually winced a bit at one scene in this film, a scene in which a bullet crashes through both a windshield and a man's head and blood is sprayed up on the windshield. It is very realistic and very gross. And unfortunately there are too many of these kinds of scenes in this movie. It contains a [...]

The Change-Up

August 5, 2011
You might just think the theme of characters switching bodies has been done a lot and is a tired theme. When this movie is compared to "Freaky Friday" from several years ago, with a then still fairly innocent Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Leigh Curtis, you would be right. That film was genuinely funny [...]

Green Lantern

June 17, 2011
The special effects abound in this comic book extravaganza. Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) is the first human ever chosen to be part of the intergalactic order of the Green Lantern Corps. He is chosen to defeat Parallax, a fierce beast-like villain who threatens the very universe itself. Hal cannot see [...]

Sandra Bullock plays a book editor named Margaret who is facing deportation to her native Canada if she doesn't come up with a quick solution. She does. Her solution is to marry her executive assistant Andrew (Ryan Reynolds). She is the boss most people can't stand including Andrew. When she is [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

In most of our lives there have been teachers or a teacher that we remember fondly. This happens to be a story about that kind of teacher. And not just one teacher but actually three. These three are Stormin' Norman, who was "The Teacher of the Year" for 43 years. Next, his son Matt, a science [...]

Just Friends

November 23, 2005
"Just Friends" had the potential to be an incredibly fun flick; unfortunately, because of the unnecessary language and sexual innuendo, it went far beyond acceptable limits for the Dove seal. There were moments we were laughing so hard it was difficult to gain composure, and not surprisingly, the [...]


October 7, 2005
This movie is a lot like Ryan Reynold’s “Van Wilder”, only in a restaurant. I sure hope many of the jokes in the movie aren’t true about restaurants, since I never worked at one. I’m sure many of the actions are thought about, especially with difficult customers, but hopefully not [...]

The Amityville Horror (2005)

April 15, 2005
I have never seen the original version of this movie so I cannot offer any comparisons between the two. My only prior knowledge of this film was the preview I saw in the theater and on television, so I offer my untainted opinion. I didn’t find it scary, but rather freakishly disturbing. There [...]

Blade: Trinity

December 8, 2004
"Blade: Trinity" is by far the best of the three "Blade" films; and I really enjoyed the first two. An hour and 46 minutes of pure adrenaline action, cleverly accented with spots of humor. The focus of this film wasn’t entirely on Blade (Wesley Snipes), but spread evenly amongst him, Abigail [...]
