The Great Gatsby (2013)

This movie is made in the spirit of the grand old epics such as "Gone with the Wind". From the sweeping views of New York City, grand viewpoints from the homes of the rich, to the opulence and finery of the wealthy, this film is big with a capital B. It is well acted with the likes of Leonardo [...]

"Spider-Man 2" has been called the greatest comic book movie ever made by many film critics and comic book aficionados. "Spider-Man 3" strongly makes a case to take that title. The film is virtually a non-stop ride into great action sequences, character development, and humor; plus, the film [...]

The Good German

After viewing this movie at an early screening, at the conclusion I thought, "What a cheery little movie." I was being sarcastic to myself.

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I have to admit that I saw this film when it first came out in theaters and found it to carry a wonderful story that was inspiring but was marred by a ton of crude, obscene and profane language. I walked out of the theater expressing my disappointment that the film-maker chose to include that type [...]

Spider-Man

November 1, 2002
Although the scene is often filled with fighting, most of the violence is neither graphic nor gory. However, a few moments in the climatic battle may be more graphic than necessary as Spiderman takes a brutal beating. There are two uses of "Jesus" as an exclamation, and several mild obscenities and [...]
