Ocean’s 8

June 8, 2018
There is a rug under Ocean's 8 at all times: it just lies there, and in the audience's seat, we thoroughly anticipate that final yank out from under us. Do we know everything we can know about the score? Are these women—thieves and other various types of crooks, to be sure—as trustworthy as can [...]

Minions

July 10, 2015

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Minions" is a blast. It features a lot of pranks and skits, and the minions will, at times, have you splitting your sides. It is not a perfect movie, though. The Academy Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock plays the main villain (named Scarlet), and through no fault of her own, the evil Scarlet [...]

Our Brand Is Crisis (2015)

October 30, 2015
"Our Brand Is Crisis" (2015) is a smart, gritty, realistic look at the world of politics. In this case, the plot takes place in Bolivia where political fix-it woman Jane (Sandra Bullock) is asked to help a badly losing politician, Castillo (Joaquim de Almeida), who is running for president, and [...]

Gravity (2013)

October 4, 2013
What a story this would make if it were really to happen. The viewer can't help but think that while watching Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) as she undergoes one trying test after another after space debris interrupts a mission she is on. After the Russians strike one of their own satellites it [...]

The Heat (2013)

June 28, 2013
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy have teamed up to perform in this less than hilarious film about an FBI agent and a Boston police officer who attempt to find a drug smuggler. Along the way, they form a bond but while trying to get there the audience is forced to listen to the foulest language [...]

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

January 20, 2012
What a powerful movie which moves the emotions and touches the senses in a way few films do. This is a movie which most people will relate to, to some degree, and in one way or another. It is regrettable that two crudities and strong utterances of language prevent us from awarding the movie our [...]

The Blind Side

November 20, 2009

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Every Sunday from August to the end of February people gather in front of their televisions to watch professional football. As they sit there, do they ever wonder about these athletes; where they came from, or what journey they may have taken to get to where they are today? This is an inspirational [...]

All About Steve

September 4, 2009
Make no mistake about it. Sandra Bullock is funny in this movie, playing a very intelligent woman who sometimes lacks common sense and goes with a lot of off-the-cuff moments. She is unique. She quotes Jesus and philosophers and understands physics which, by the way, comes in handy for her in this [...]

The Proposal

June 19, 2009
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 [...]

Premonition

March 23, 2007
This film does a good job in giving the audience something to puzzle over. Why is Linda Hanson (Sandra Bullock) waking up one day and her husband is dead, and waking up another to find him alive? Is it in her head? Is it somehow really happening? I found this film interesting to watch and the [...]
