Deep In The Heart

May 7, 2013

Dove Approved for 18+

You know that Dick Wallrath (played very convincingly by Jon Gries) has a drinking problem when he comes home drunk and soon learns that one of his kids put Kool-Aid in his bourbon bottle. He goes off like lightning and thunder on his wife and kids. He is an abusive husband and father, and during [...]

MacGruber

This film is basically about a clueless soldier of fortune that is called back into action to stop the enemy who wants to bomb Washington, D.C. with nukes. His name is MacGruber (Will Forte) and this character apparently originated years ago on Saturday Night Live. Val Kilmer is quite good as the [...]

Deja Vu

"Deja Vu" is a high-action, crime-drama, sci-fi, thriller which is exactly what you would expect from Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of such action-adventures as "Con Air," "Enemy of the State," "National Treasure," "Pirates of the Caribbean," and another Denzel Washington favorite, "Remember the [...]

The Ten Commandments: The Musical

November 21, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

When I first heard of this title, my initial reaction was, "A musical based on the Ten Commandments? What?!" However, I must admit that this production works very well. The costumes are great, the acting is very good, and the singing is not only great but the songs are actually catchy and fit the [...]

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

June 13, 2006
I cannot believe a Hollywood studio paid anyone to make this film. Shane Black is a terrible writer and director. The dialog in the movie was filled with gratuitous obscenities and profanities, seemingly just to have them in there. Black even throws a line in at the end of the film seemingly [...]

Mindhunters – Filtered

September 20, 2005
"Mind Hunters" was a very intriguing film of 8 FBI agents sent to an island to continue training when they learn that one of them is a serial killer. In order to save their lives they need to find out which one of them is the killer. The film was suspenseful and left the viewer guessing throughout [...]

Mindhunters

"Mindhunters" is the wrong title for this film. It should more rightly be called "Mindwasters" as this is what those unfortunates who actually spent 106 minutes in a theater watching this movie were doing. This is a classic textbook exercise in how to make a B-movie without really trying. Take a [...]

Alexander

I thought I had made a terrible mistake - had I walked into a discovery channel presentation about Alexander, or a Hollywood entertainment movie? I double-checked the theatre and my ticket; yes, I was in the right place. All the hype that surrounded this film is just that - hype. The content and [...]

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 [...]
