The Expendables 3

August 15, 2014
"The Expendables 3" is an action-packed film from beginning to the end and filled with many well-known actors. This reviewer has not seen the previous Expendables films so cannot compare, but this movie has something for everyone including drama, comedy, action, adventure and suspense. The only [...]

Puss in Boots 3D

October 28, 2011

Dove Approved for All Ages

What a delightful movie, I loved it! It is original, yet contains the pussy cat from the "Shrek" films, Puss in Boots himself (voiced by Antonio Banderas). The 3D in the movie is one of the best examples I have seen of the technique. Puss in Boot's sword seemed to be pointed right at me on a few [...]

Shrek Forever After

May 21, 2010

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The new Shrek film delivers more laughs. I went into the screening with some trepidation. After all, this is the FOURTH Shrek film. I was concerned they would simply rehash all of the old material from the first three films. And although there are bound to be a few repeat jokes, they are kept fresh [...]

Shrek the Third

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Shrek the Third" is the funniest Shrek movie yet. The audience (me included) roared with laughter at various parts. When the donkey and Puss in Boots exchange personalities the humor goes to another level. The donkey attempts to look as cute as the cat, but he just can't quite pull it off. The [...]

Take the Lead

April 7, 2006
"Take the Lead" works in showing changes and growth in the characters. These characters wouldn't have dreamed of entering a ballroom dancing competition when they first met dance instructor Pierre Dulaine (Antonio Banderas), but this is exactly what happens. Any film which includes a song by Nat [...]

The Legend of Zorro

October 28, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"My family is my life" is Zorro's new slogan and he means it. Director Martin Campbell could have gone either way with this fun filled, action-packed saga. While he may have come close to pushing the limits with this film, he manages to reel himself in several times and presents the viewer with an [...]

Shrek 2

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Shrek 2" looks great, with cutting-edge computer animation, even better than the first one. This film has some great themes, including Shrek abandoning his swamp for Fiona’s happiness, and Fiona's love for Shrek regardless of his appearance. Donkey also remains a loyal friend to Shrek. In [...]

Spy Kids 3: Game Over

July 25, 2003

Dove Approved for All Ages

This movie is a potpourri of famous actors, some appearing in quick cameos, and they lend some fun to the film. See Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas, Ricardo Montalban and Elijah Wood all in the same movie. The film has continual action and is very much like a video game as the characters enter [...]
