The Avengers: Infinity War

April 27, 2018
When Thanos, the over-arching villain of the Marvel universe, sets out at last on his mission to recover the six infinity stones, it becomes clear that all else pales in comparison to the task to stop him. Doing so requires assembling a team of all the heavy-hitters, and I mean all of them.  [...]

Captain America: Civil War

May 6, 2016
“Captain America: Civil War” is an action-packed thriller with the good guys fighting the bad guys and -- oh, by the way, the Avengers fight among themselves, too! Therefore, the title "Civil War" is quite appropriate. William Hurt plays Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and, following some [...]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is a must see movie! I knew I was in for a good time when in an early scene Steve Rogers says he has been reading the internet and catching up and he has a "to do" list which includes seeing "Rocky" and "Star Wars"! This film features an action-packed journey [...]

Pain and Gain

April 26, 2013
I have rarely been as offended by the content of a film as I was with this one. The title should be "All Pain and No Gain" because that's what I felt 15 minutes into the film when I walked out of the theater.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

May 15, 2008

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This follow-up to "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" is a darker, more intense version of "The Chronicles of Narnia." There is a bit more evil to contend with in this one. As a dwarf in the film says: "You might find Narnia a more savage place then you remember." The wicked King Miraz (Sergio [...]

You Kill Me

July 13, 2007
The theme of this picture seems to be that true love is blind, even when a man kills people for a living. Tea Leoni and Ben Kingsley do have good chemistry, but she accepts him as her character of Laurel, not only with his problem as an alcoholic, but also as a...is there such a word as a [...]
