Deliver Us from Evil (2014)

July 2, 2014
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

The Lone Ranger

July 3, 2013
This is not the Lone Ranger of TV and film history. I personally believe Clayton Moore would be disappointed. First of all, this movie's genre is difficult to figure out. It is listed as an action picture, a western and an adventure film. It includes humor and at times seems to be spoofing the [...]

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

May 20, 2011
Captain Jack is back in a fun-filled frolicking adventure! This latest installment in the "Pirates" series is non-stop action, and filled with intrigue and cracks from Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). The "captain" had me in stitches a couple of times. Depp is excellent at physical humor and [...]

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

May 28, 2010
This movie is one of those which will please some viewers while others will definitely not be so pleased. Some movies, by their very nature, provoke various but definite responses. There won't be much ambivalence from viewers regarding this one. This movie has almost non-stop violence in it and I [...]

This movie is safe and cute. It is a film which is suitable for all ages.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

February 13, 2009
This movie makes some points about how easy it is to get into credit card debt, and how shopping can be an addiction as much as drinking or gambling can be. Not that this is not a comedy. Isla Fisher plays Rebecca Bloomwood and she does have very good comic timing. One scene features her boss, Luke [...]
