Suburbicon

October 27, 2017
George Clooney had his hands all over this movie as one of the writers, as its producer and director, and he missed the mark with Suburbicon, which is unintentionally ironic. In this re-working of an old Cohen brothers’ script, he tells the story of a small Caucasian family named the [...]

Wonderstruck

October 20, 2017

Dove Approved for All Ages

Wonderstruck is wonderful! Though cloaked in tragedy and loss, this movie is utterly enchanting. Produced in the vein of Brian Selznick’s other acclaimed, illustrated novel-turned-film, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Wonderstruck, too, follows the journey of a boy and a girl, albeit they are in [...]

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

November 21, 2014

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" is powerful, dramatic, and full of strong acting. Jennifer Lawrence does an excellent job as the main character, Katniss Everdeen, whose pain in fighting against the Capitol government and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is clearly demonstrated. Katniss [...]

Seventh Son

February 6, 2015

January 16, 2015
"Still Alice" is a poignant and touching drama about the effects of Alzheimer's in the life of Alice Howland (stunningly played by Julianne Moore).

Crazy, Stupid, Love

July 29, 2011
It's too bad this movie wanders away from the family-friendly umbrella. Steve Carell can certainly be a funny guy. At one point in the film he has learned his wife has had an affair and one of his co-workers checks on him and learns what has happened. "Oh, good, we were worried," he says. "When I [...]
