Coco

Dove Approved for All Ages

Coco es maravilloso!   Coco is gorgeous! Pixar has not only created a breathtaking, imaginative universe, but these masters have also swooped us into a culture that sparks endless conversation about family honor, death and heaven, music, honesty and a lifetime of injustice. But first, [...]

Despicable Me 2

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

In this cute sequel to the 2010 hit movie, Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League and tasked with finding out who is behind a plot to take over the world by using a transfiguration serum. At the same time, his "girls" and especially Agnes try to fix him up with a woman so that they might have [...]

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie has a rather bizarre plot as it involves a young inventor who invents a machine which creates food from water and consequently cheeseburgers, pizza, and yes-meatballs, fall from the sky. The movie features some funny moments. When the film begins a banana knocks Miss Columbia off her [...]

Love in the Time of Cholera

November 16, 2007
The film adaption of the award-winning book is beautiful in its story-telling with many funny and poignant moments. Two young people experiencing forbidden love seek to banish the memory of the other through very different means to no avail. In the end, they find that they are experiencing the same [...]

The Great Raid

August 12, 2005
This film was very well done. The story was well written, acting was superb, and the fight scenes very realistic and not exaggerated. Although a comparison probably isn't fair, but the movie had a similar feel to "Saving Private Ryan", although this film was based on actual events. Not only was [...]

Miss Congeniality

December 22, 2000
Sandra Bullock is as likeable, charismatic and pretty as a person can get. (Don’t think she’s all that pretty? Wait until you see her made up as a beauty contestant!) As for the story, well, it’s not original, suspenseful, or even all that funny. The best that can be said for this [...]

Red Planet

November 10, 2000
Have you noticed that in several of his films, actor Val Kilmer looks like he’d rather be someplace else? He’s a good actor, but he often appears bored to death. And, in Red Planet, I can understand why. The script is not just routine, it’s downright dull. No lesson is learned. There’s [...]

Next Best Thing

March 3, 2000
I found the material in this comedy/drama extremely offensive due to the mocking of and contempt for Christianity. In an effort to embrace alternative lifestyles, it belittles those who believe the Bible’s all to clear instruction about avoiding the practice of homosexuality. Also, the child [...]
