Brahms: The Boy II

To watch Brahms: The Boy II is to watch it fall apart. The film does much to undo the story and interesting plot twist of the original. While the first The Boy would not be Dove-approved (for many of the same reasons here) it worked well in a [...]

A-X-L

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Dogs have been man’s best friend for eons. It’s only natural that the military would choose the faithful dog as a model for the expensive attack robot nicknamed A-X-L. After Miles (Alex Neustaedter) and Sara (Becky G.) find the runaway robo-dog, the teens find themselves in the center of some [...]

The Age of Adaline

"The Age of Adaline" is an intriguing movie, the plot centering on a young woman that has a freak accident, running her car off a bridge into the water, to be changed forever when lightning strikes the area. She quits aging. Indeed, the "age" in the title of the movie can simultaneously refer to [...]

I, Frankenstein

This story is intelligently written and features a belief in God, angels, archangels, and demons. Aaron Eckhart plays an interesting Frankenstein or, as Queen Leonore (Miranda Otto), High Queen of the Gargoyle order, calls him, "Adam." Eckhart's creature is both sympathetic and powerfully violent [...]

One for the Money

The viewer will have to suspend a lot of belief in order to follow this one faithfully. It seems very unlikely that the likable Stephanie Plum (Katherine Heigl) could become a recovery agent for a bail bonding company, in fact working for her cousin who actually kissed her in a sleazy way on her [...]

The Ugly Truth

The ugly truth about "The Ugly Truth" is that it is far from a family movie for Mom, Dad and the kids. It has a ton of sexual innuendos and frank sexual comments, in addition to strong language. At one point a main character, after listening to a lot of talk about sex along with some slang, says, [...]
