Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films.

Wrath of the Titans

The suspense and quick-action plot, along with a few mysteries surrounding the enigmatic Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) combine to make an [...]

I will say it deals with symbiosis and how we are connected as beings one with another and that we do owe our fellow beings and this planet a certain respect. Also, the visuals in this film [...]

Clash of the Titans (2010)

April 2, 2010
This film is a stunning cinematic experience for the eyes. It is rich in visuals and special effects which include gods, flying creatures and the underworld. It is a good example as to why some movies play better on a large screen than a small one. The problem is the story stalls at times. So much [...]
