The Amazing Spider-Man 2

May 2, 2014

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is...well, just like the first one which is also Dove approved, amazing! It is action-packed, funny, and is one of the best comic book adaptations ever put on the screen. Oh, and it features the now standard Stan Lee cameo. Without giving the details away, Stan shows up [...]

The Amazing Spider-Man

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The new Spider-Man movie is...Amazing! It really is. I went in with low expectations to be totally honest. I thought it was too early for a reboot for this series. But the movie is a feast for the eyes with trail-blazing special effects, spectacular 3D which gives a real awesome depth perception [...]

Punisher: War Zone

December 5, 2008
With brutally graphic violence, this film becomes the textbook case of a violent video game gone Hollywood. Action-packed gore isn't my style and I bet if you're reading this review it probably isn't yours either. In an effort to not offend your sensibilities, I am going to refer you to the content [...]

The Incredible Hulk

June 13, 2008
This is a high energy and action-packed movie. You do get to catch your breath occasionally but not for long. There is a lot of fighting and explosions and a little blood in spots, but the film is so steeped in the Marvel comic-book feel that, although it is pretty well done, it can't be put on the [...]

Iron Man

May 2, 2008
Robert Downey Jr. has his moments of being very funny in this film. The mechanical douser that douses out the fire when he is ablaze in his "Iron Man" costume wants to douse him when he is not on fire, and at one point he tells it he will donate it to a city college if it keeps acting up. He is [...]

Bratz: The Movie

August 2, 2007

Dove Approved for All Ages

Here is a movie that is just for girls, particularly ages five to fourteen. "Bratz" would make a great girls' night for moms and their daughters. If your daughter or daughters play with the dolls, then they will love this movie. While dressing different is not always a bad thing, it should be done [...]

Spider-Man 3

May 4, 2007

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Spider-Man 2" has been called the greatest comic book movie ever made by many film critics and comic book aficionados. "Spider-Man 3" strongly makes a case to take that title. The film is virtually a non-stop ride into great action sequences, character development, and humor; plus, the film [...]

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

June 15, 2007

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

In the latest installment of Fantastic Four, our heroes face a new opponent bent on destroying earth and also reacquaint themselves with an old foe. Action abounds in this exciting adventure as do the product placements. In fact, the film seems to poke a little fun at its own expense by placing [...]

Ghost Rider

February 16, 2007
This film is very visual. The images of the blazing skull head on top of Johnny Blaze's body as he travels by motorcycle in his role as "the devil's bounty hunter," are stunning. There are some good performances in the film, including Peter Fonda as a cunning devil, Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze, [...]
