The Divergent Series: Allegiant

March 18, 2016

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Allegiant," Part One, is the third film in the "Divergent" series and is the first one that is able to receive our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal.

Gladiator

May 5, 2000
This sword-and-sandal epic is gruesome, graphic and gory. Elements of “El Cid,” “Ben Hur,” “Spartacus” and “Braveheart” can easily be identified in “Gladiator,” along with the dramatic treachery and tragedy found in most of Shakespeare’s works. What the picture lacks is a [...]
