Suing the Devil

March 1, 2012

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

What a terrific film! Malcolm McDowell turns in a compelling performance as the devil himself, and he brings all the tricks and accusations he can to the trial in which he finds himself and his lawyers defending his past and evil ways. Bart Bronson also does a commendable job as Luke O'Brien, the [...]

Hustle – Filtered

March 29, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Hustle" was based on the true story of Pete Rose and the events leading up to his expulsion in baseball. The film itself lacks in content. I felt as though I was watching the same thing over and over. The acting was only okay. There are many bets placed throughout the film and a few instances [...]


Rex is determined to get private photographs of Bo’s family life because he says, “Everyone wants to have a peek. It’s human nature.” This film shows the degree that unethical photographers will go to in order to get private pictures of public people. This includes trespassing, breaking and [...]

Big Trouble

Aside from a prayerful Hispanic housemaid who beats off the advances of her sleazy, adulterous boss and a hippie, “Jesus look-alike” who quotes Genesis, there are few redeeming elements in this film. Three different characters show no qualms about adultery. The dialogue is filled with sexually [...]

Black Hawk Down

Ridley Scott, director of "Gladiator," fills the screen at least ninety percent of the time with violent and sometimes bloody battle scenes. Legs and arms go flying and a bloody leg wound gushes up close and personal. This is a war movie with a capital ‘W,’ and one won’t find much humor [...]

Red Planet – Filtered

March 27, 2001

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The earth's surplus is too much and scientists go to Mars to try and prepare it for human occupancy. They face many trials ahead as they get to work. This is a slow going, poor-acted film, not captivating or realistic. It is approved but it's not [...]

Red Planet

March 27, 2001
Have you noticed that in several of his films, actor Val Kilmer looks like he’d rather be someplace else? He’s a good actor, but he often appears bored to death. And, in Red Planet, I can understand why. The script is not just routine, it’s downright dull. No lesson is learned. There’s [...]

The Second Coming of Christ

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"The Second Coming of Christ" features an interesting plot about the apocalypse and a unique take on how the end times might unfold. A Blight hits all the plants on the Earth, resulting in the death of them all, and this results in a domino effect. Animals die, and insects and people are left [...]

I Believe

Dove Approved for All Ages

"I Believe" is a story about using childlike faith, which can result in great blessings—sometimes even miracles. Brian is a little boy, very intelligent, who grew up in a non-Christian home, but as he writes a paper in school about the pilgrims, he learns of their faith. His parents discourage [...]
