Secretariat

Dove Approved for All Ages

An interview with Director, Randall Wallace http://www.dove.org/news.asp?ArticleID=215 This is truly the story of a horse. Secretariat's personality and tremendous charisma steal the show entirely; however, there is a very subtle, palpable thread of faith as well. The film begins with a quote [...]

W.

Although this is a comedy I did not find much humor in the entire film. There is under age drinking, a hazing at a college frat house and some political understatements. I am not quite sure who would really want to see this movie. At times it makes our present President look like a complete idiot [...]

The Bourne Ultimatum

This film is the third in the series and finds Jason Bourne searching for the clues to his past. With plenty of action-packed sequences including fantastic chase scenes with very little blood or death, the story is substantial enough that it will make sense to those who have not seen the previous [...]

Freedom Writers

This fact-based story of Erin Gruwell (Hilary Swank) and her devotion to her Long Beach, California, class is pretty amazing. There is no sentimentality in this story and yet the viewer feels for these students and the tragedies they have endured-tragedies of gang-related deaths and a neglect at [...]

Vertical Limit

Like “Twister,” the action/disaster film of a couple years ago, “Vertical Limit” gives the viewer one exciting special effect or death-defying stunt after another. It makes “Raiders of the Lost Ark” look like a subliminal relaxation video. Unfortunately, like with “Twister,” these [...]

The Hunt for Red October

Captain Marko Ramius of the submarine Red October has a plan and the plot of the movie circles around his intentions. Does he plan to defect from the then-Soviet Union to the United States, or does he plan to get close enough to the U.S. in order to deploy missiles at the country? The movie has a [...]
