Spider-Man: Far From Home

July 3, 2019

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Spider-Man: Far From Home
The Dove Take: Not without fair faults, Spider-Man: Far From Home is a nimble and fun entry into a new era of superhero cinema. The film, well reliant on action, a bit coarse on language, and some more mature flirtation is approved for Ages 12+.

Yesterday

Dove Approved for All Ages

Toy Story 4
The Dove Take: Toy Story 4 proves to not be a tired installment to a beloved series. It finds grace in a point to land on, to end a series of groundbreaking films with humor, understanding, and love for the technical aspects of the design as well as the narrative itself. With such rich themes balanced ...

Anna

June 21, 2019
Anna
The Dove Take: Anna is a movie about a woman with lethal skills, with a view to too many kills and so over-the-top it’ll leave you green at the gills.

Child’s Play (2019)

June 21, 2019
Child’s Play (2019)
The Dove Take: Chucky does what Chucky always does, only the motives change and the innocent are never protected.

90 Feet From Home

June 20, 2019
90 Feet From Home
The Dove Take: Brett Bentman’s film, based on a true story, shows powerfully the way the sins of the father are passed down to their children, and the transformation of forgiveness. But the film’s delivery simply contains too much profanity and violence to receive Dove approval.

Men in Black: International

June 14, 2019
Men in Black: International

Dark Phoenix

June 7, 2019
Dark Phoenix
The Dove Take: With relevant themes and discussion-worthy topics in abundance, Dark Phoenix feels like a missed opportunity, especially as it keeps mental health on a leash. The film, somewhat violent in nature, cannot be approved by Dove.

Ma (2019)

June 7, 2019
Ma (2019)
The Dove Take: Spencer tries to infuse her character with an empathetic likability—can you really hate somebody you call “Ma”? But like Maggie says, “There’s something off about Ma.” It’s up to the viewer to figure out whether she means Spencer’s character or the entire movie.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

May 31, 2019
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
The Dove Take: Though the plot and characters feel canned, this film is everything Godzilla was meant to be: loud, violent, and thrilling.

Rocketman

May 31, 2019
Rocketman
The Dove Take: Despite how wonderful life has been while Elton John has been in the world, this musical fantasy biopic earns a “Grey Seal,” which Dove audiences understand carries a different meaning than his 1973 song of the same name.

Aladdin (2019)

May 24, 2019

Dove Approved for All Ages
