Transformers: Dark of the Moon

June 30, 2011
I was pleased to see that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" has more story this time around than its predecessor, the last installment which was part two in the series. It still is a "busy" film. At times so much is happening on the screen with fights and battles and storyline and character nuances [...]

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 [...]

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

June 24, 2009
This film makes the mistake of overkill. It lasts two and a half hours and could and should be trimmed down to ninety minutes. There are way too many fights and battles as well. I know a lot of young people and "Transformers" fans enjoy the battles, and the special effects in this film are amazing, [...]

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

May 22, 2008

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Indiana Jones is back! He is a bit older but he definitely hasn't slowed down. In this rollicking high-energy film which is backed by some great special effects, Dr. Jones takes on a young wise-cracking sidekick named Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf). They search for some answers regarding the mystical [...]

Eagle Eye

September 26, 2008
Shia LaBeouf is funny in this film. There's no question about that. His sarcasm and Smart Aleck remarks infuse the film with some lighter moments, which is very welcome as there are a lot of intense scenes and action. This film barely slows down to take a breath. Learning that someone close to him [...]

Transformers (2007)

July 3, 2007
This movie joins the rank of films which barely miss out on being approved by Dove. It is rated a three in the language category of our content scale, and a three means it can't be approved. It would have been had it been a two rating but, unfortunately, it wasn't. There is simply a lot of language [...]

Surfs Up

June 8, 2007

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Surf's Up" promotes a strong theme of friendship, which adds a nice touch to the film. The animation and antics of the penguins are enough to keep kids happy. One of the main characters, Cody, learns a lot about relationships with others and that life is not all about him. He is very competitive [...]

Disturbia

April 13, 2007
I found "Disturbia" to be a suspenseful story. It wasn't difficult to figure out who the villain was, but he was so good at covering up his murders, I wondered whether or not he would ever get caught. I won't give that away but this story will appeal to those who enjoy watching a murder mystery and [...]
