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 [...]

The Avengers: The Age of Ultron

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Avenger" fans will love "The Age of Ultron," the newest installment in the action-packed, rollicking world of this Marvel franchise. This second film in the series feels a bit inflated and padded, with the battle at the end going on for a long time. Still, the humor and wit from the first movie is [...]

Whats Your Number?

September 30, 2011
This example of a scene I watched in this film will tell you what it is basically about. Ally (Anna Faris) is speaking to a male friend, who tells her that more sex will convince a guy she is interested in that she is the marrying kind. The sexual jokes literally flood this movie. Of course, the [...]

The Losers

April 23, 2010
This movie features a lot of action, as well as violence. There is some blood but it is not as gratuitous as it could have been. Still, there is some to go along with the violent scenes, which turn out to be several. The content in this film includes some strong sexual comments and innuendos as [...]
