Solo: A Star Wars Story

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

As one of Star Wars most beloved characters, it was only a matter of time before Han Solo got his own film. But with shoes as big as Harrison Ford's to fill, everyone's wondering if the new guy, Alden Ehrenreich, is up to the job. The charm, the wit, the debonair qualities—the order for Solo is [...]

Inferno (2016)

"Inferno" is a fast-paced suspense drama featuring a man named Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) with amnesia who teams with emergency room physician Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) in trying to figure out why they are being pursued and shot at. What is learned, as Langdon's memory slowly returns, and [...]

In the Heart of the Sea

"In the Heart of the Sea" is a compelling movie about a quest and survival. For Herman Melville, this journey is about traveling to the lone survivor's home of the ship Essex to find out the story of the fabled great white whale. Was it really that huge? What happened to the men? What details are [...]

Rush

This film has some exciting race scenes which are to a great extent what the movie is about. It also features the handsome Chris Hemsworth from the Dove-approved films "The Avengers" and "Thor". His character, James Hunt from Britain, is quite a comparison to Niki Lauda (Daniel Burhl) from [...]

The Dilemma

I had high hopes for this film after screening it for the first several minutes. There was little language in it and it seemed to be a buddy movie with some laughs in it. Then, it changed direction, suddenly, like a locomotive. The next thing I knew I discovered that it is very disjointed with [...]

Angels and Demons

Professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) is asked by Camerlengo Patrick McKenna (Ewan McGregor) if he believes in God. He wants to see how he will answer before he allows him to search the archives for clues which may prevent a secret order from killing four innocent cardinals of the church. Langdon [...]

Frost/Nixon

Frost/Nixon portrays a simple view of two rather complex men's lives. Frost is the womanizing television host and Nixon is the dejected former President of the United States. There's no doubt that both parties agreed to these debates with a hope of restoring their status with the public. [...]

The DaVinci Code

November 14, 2006
Ron Howard has directed a twisting and winding thriller that is both long and unimaginative. Unlike "National Treasure" which was based on similarly secretive organizations, this film is both violent and vulgar at the same time. During one particularly gruesome sequence, we are forced to watch as [...]

Backdraft – Filtered

September 19, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is a great film about heroism and courage-fighting the flames and trying to save people. Although there were a lot of good scenes of what firefighters actually do there were some things that we want to note-such as the implied affair between an unmarried couple and some of the violence. [...]

Cinderella Man – Filtered

December 6, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This was an awesome film based on a true story that really gets you to think about how far you will go to provide for your family. With the film being set 4 yrs into the great depression, It was really hard for me to comprehend how these families made it through and how they went for so long [...]
