The Young Messiah

March 11, 2016

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"The Young Messiah" is a well-acted, biblically-based film, which makes use of creative and dramatic license and imagines what the life of young Jesus may have been like between the ages of seven and 12. Based on the novel, "Christ The Lord: Out of Egypt" by Anne Rice, who had a spiritual awakening [...]

Jupiter Ascending

February 6, 2015
"Jupiter Ascending" is a unique movie because it deals with sci-fi themes, but it is also very much a film about people who struggle and deal with day-to-day life. Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a Russian immigrant, gets up early to do the thankless job of cleaning, including cleaning toilets. No [...]

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

February 12, 2010

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Make no mistake about it. This movie has a lot of battle scenes and sword fights in it in addition to fire-breathing creatures. Yet as it briskly moves ahead on the big screen there is a lot to like and enjoy. The film features some of the best special effects, i.e. CGI work, I have seen in a film. [...]

The Hitcher

January 19, 2007
Well, here is yet another movie where young, attractive people are stalked and tormented by a psychopathic killer, but there are a couple of things that are different about “The Hitcher.” For one thing, the killer is played very well by Sean Bean, whose acting is probably the best thing about [...]

Silent Hill (2006)

April 21, 2006
Heavily laden with horrific, highly surreal images and violence, “Silent Hill” is definitely not one for the family. That being said, the images work well to give the movie a definite ambience, which ends up being quite unique. As Rose searches for her lost daughter in a supposedly deserted [...]

North Country

October 21, 2005
North Country is a powerful film! It is moving and stirs many emotions for those in the audience. Like feeling ashamed to be a white man when watching Mississippi Burning because of all of the unnecessary abuse and cruel treatment blacks faced in our country, North Country made me feel ashamed to [...]
