Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

October 12, 2018

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

There’s something magical about books. They’re like portals for a writer’s imagination, letting readers experience new realms that have been crafted with care. Stories may start and expand, but sometimes even those writing them don’t know how they’ll end; bound pages, waiting for an [...]

The Fate of the Furious

April 14, 2017
"The Fate of the Furious" is a highly entertaining and energy-filled movie. It features an action-packed opening car race between Dom (Vin Diesel) and a braggart, car crashes, close calls, a prison riot, several powerful fights, an icy villainess (Charlize Theron), and an incredible secret that Dom [...]

Passengers

December 21, 2016
"Passengers" is a fascinating movie that works especially well due to its lead actors, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Left in other actor's hands, it probably doesn't hold the audience's attention as well. Lawrence and Pratt have chemistry in this "Titanic"-like story, with the plot taking [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Goosebumps" is a thrill ride. If you enjoy a bit of mystery, suspense, monsters, fast-paced chases and close calls, then this movie is for you! It even features a romantic plot between two teens, Zach (Dylan Minnette) and Hannah (Odeya Rush). The plot centers around Zach and his mother, the new [...]

Furious 7

April 3, 2015
"Furious 7" has an action-packed and fast-paced plot, as one would suspect. It also features the last performance of Paul Walker as Brian O'Conner; as most people probably know, Walker died near the end of making this movie. To the filmmakers' credit, they give him an appropriate send-off in the [...]

22 Jump Street

June 13, 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 [...]

Fast and Furious 6

May 24, 2013
This movie is, as you would expect, fast paced. In fact, it opens in Spain with a race and rarely slows down after that. Brian (Paul Walker) has just become a father and the old team hopes to live the quiet life of retirement (following the race). But Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) asks Dom to re-assemble [...]

Dead Man Down

March 8, 2013
Some of the themes of this movie are to be commended such as a line in the beginning of the film which states, "We make our plans but life is what happens to us along the way." In this action-packed story Colin Farrell plays a man named Victor, who is secretly Hungarian with the former name of [...]

21 Jump Street

March 16, 2012
I felt like I needed to take a shower after watching this movie. The content in this picture is way over the top. I realize it is rated R but if the writer removed the F bomb from the dialog, it would cut down the movie's run time by about a half hour or more. Seriously, do some of these writers [...]
