Get Low

July 30, 2010
This is a dramatic movie with a touch of comedy here and there. Robert Duvall gives a wonderful portrayal as Felix Bush, the hermit who has lived on 350 acres for 40 years away from everyone. There are very few people who actually know the details of his real story. Many townspeople have conjured [...]

November 26, 2008
Many people in today's world may relate to this comedy. If you come from divorced parents, you definitely will understand where the plot is heading. Brad and Kate each are in that classification so of course that makes four separate Christmases. But they usually lie to their families so they don't [...]

American Haunting, An

May 5, 2006
The generic title “An American Haunting” is symbolic of the overall unoriginality of this film, which lasts from beginning to end. The film’s opening premise, that this particular American haunting is somehow different from all the others, turns out to be quite false as far as occult themes [...]

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 [...]

The Ring Two

March 18, 2005
I kept racking my brain trying to figure out the plot of Ring 2. I didn’t think there was any place for it to go. While there were some very freaky parts of Ring 2 it lacked the fear of the first. And as far as the plot goes, I think the writers stretched this film too far which showed in its [...]

A Home at the End of the World

July 30, 2004
In this story, several characters are in great pain. Bobby struggles with loneliness while Jonathan feels like an outcast, living in Bobby’s shadow. And Clare wants desperately to be loved but never seems to find the kind of commitment she is looking for. They search in their careers, their [...]

Tuck Everlasting

October 11, 2002

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This story looks at the idea of immortality and living forever, and its emphasis is on this life, rather than an after-life experience. Several Bible passages are read at the funeral of a character who dies. The film is refreshingly free of strong language, but several scenes involve minor [...]

Blast from the Past: Edited

January 29, 2002

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The language has been softened for this edited video release. There is still some content which parents will want to be aware of and this is all listed below. The story does portray the life of thirty-five-year-old Adam (Brendan Fraser), who prays at meals and is kind to his parents and to women; [...]


Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The subject matter may sound like a downer, but this is good television. Lacking any objectionable language or sexual exploitation, this film mesmerizes with skilled acting, a sensitive script and tight direction. “Midwives” examines a good family faced with a devastating problem. And guys, get [...]
