Only the Brave

October 20, 2017
Only the Brave is about heroism, the ability to change, and about risking everything for a greater cause. This movie is based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who saved many lives by risking their own on several occasions. This story is particularly poignant and will resonate [...]

Hail, Caesar!

February 5, 2016
"Hail, Caesar!" is an original -- there is nothing else like it in theaters these days. It calls back to a lost time in Hollywood when studio heads fixed problems on movies, including keeping their stars out of the wrong kind of headlines. In this case, Josh Brolin is the man in charge of keeping [...]

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

August 22, 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 [...]

Labor Day (2014)

January 31, 2014
This movie is unique in its plot. I have never seen another one quite like it. An escaped prisoner, Frank Chambers (Josh Brolin), elicits the help of a woman named Adele (Kate Winslet) and her thirteen year old son Henry (Gattlin Griffith). He has them drive him to Adele's home where he plans a [...]

Gangster Squad

January 11, 2013
This is a partially fictionalized story of notorious West Coast mob boss, Mickey Cohen and his war with a disparate group of cops who went undercover to regain law and order in LA.. The action is like an urban battle ground. The hand-picked cops are all former soldiers who are under orders from the [...]

Men In Black 3

May 25, 2012
It's a shame a few strong utterances of language and the fact the film crosses the acceptable level in violence on our content chart occurs in this movie because it is an imaginative and, at times, laugh-out-loud picture. Emma Thompson plays Agent O in the movie and she is hilarious in a scene in [...]

True Grit

December 22, 2010
Young Hailee Steinfeld might have quite a future in the movies. She plays 14-year-old Mattie Ross, whose father was gunned down by an outlaw named Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin) and she intends to make sure he is captured and pays the price for his murder. Steinfeld is terrific in her role and displays [...]

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

September 24, 2010
This movie, apart from not being a family-friendly film due to language and its sexual content, falls short in that the most interesting character, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), isn't in it for several scenes and although Shia LaBeouf and Josh Brolin are fine actors, the story just doesn't give [...]

Jonah Hex

June 18, 2010
This is the most unusual western I have ever seen. The main character, Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin), is seeking revenge against the man who killed his family by lighting their cabin on fire with the family still in it. He also put a hot brand to Jonah's face, leaving him with an ugly scar for life. This [...]

No Country for Old Men

December 7, 2007
The Bible states the love of money is the root of all evil, not money itself. It is certainly true in this film, in which a character named Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) puts his life in danger as well as his wife's to hold on to some blood money he stumbles across. Javier Bardem plays the man bent [...]
