Strawberry Summer

April 2, 2013

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is an entertaining family movie with a wonderful theme about following your heart and your own dreams, not what others wish for you. Beth Landon (Julie Mond) is terrific as a high school music teacher and Fairland Strawberry Festival Queen. She manages to get big country singer/star Jason [...]

Mother Teresa-In the Name of Gods Poor

December 1, 2007

Dove Approved for All Ages

The scripture reference referring to feeding the hungry and clothing the naked should be done as unto the Lord from the book of Matthew, epitomizes what Mother Teresa is all about. "Mother Teresa-In the Name of God’s Poor" is an outstanding DVD. The nuns, priests, staff and the girls are all safe [...]

Marco Polo

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Not too many films have been made which deal with the life of Marco Polo, so that is a plus for this film, as he is obviously an important historical figure. In addition, there is a sword fight in the film which is very well choreographed. The movie also incorporates many Asian actors in the parts, [...]

Fielders Choice

Zach also apparently suffers from autism, [...]

The ending also seems rather abrupt as if there is supposed to be a part two to the film. It should be noted that some [...]

In the Beginning

February 20, 2000

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Director Kevin Connor, who last year directed "Mary, Mother of Jesus," energizes the script with well-paced sequences and top-drawer performances. Besides giving the viewer two nights of grade-A entertainment, it may cause a renewed interest in Bible reading. Indeed, while we are giving it a 12+ [...]

Mary, Mother Of Jesus

Dove Approved for All Ages

Although seen from a Catholic perspective, it does not push Catholicism. The film presents a thoughtful, and feasible look at the influence Christ’s mother might have had on [...]

A Christmas Kiss II

Dove Approved for All Ages

Christmas Kiss II is not named for a sequel but because there are two very distinct kisses that bookend the film. This endearing Cinderella storyline that is also reminiscent of Sabrina fuses a timid but talented fashion assistant wannabe designer, Jenna (Elisabeth Harnois), with the pompous and [...]
