Strange Magic

May 19, 2015

Dove Approved for All Ages

“Strange Magic” is enchanting and charming! All kids, especially little girls, will love it, yet it offers something for the whole family. It features good and evil and love triumphant. Marianne is a fairy who lives in the Fairy Kingdom with her sister Dawn and her father, the king. Marianne [...]


This movie is a fast-paced explosive and action-packed film, with suspense layered on top of it. It doesn't make the "family-friendly" grade as it contains scenes of strong violence and profanity. No doubt its star, Taylor Lautner, will make a bigger name for himself than he already has. The story [...]


I had high hopes for this film. I was hoping for an imaginative and family-friendly film for kids and all ages. It is imaginative as far as the characters are concerned but the plot certainly isn't. Regrettably, it falls short on the family-friendly side of things. The movie is surprisingly [...]

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

This movie is one of those which will please some viewers while others will definitely not be so pleased. Some movies, by their very nature, provoke various but definite responses. There won't be much ambivalence from viewers regarding this one. This movie has almost non-stop violence in it and I [...]

June 23, 2009

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Inspector Clouseau is back (Steve Martin) in his second turn in a "Pink Panther" movie. The film definitely has its moments of humor, most of them as a result of the bumbling inspector. When some new members (known as the Dream Team) join his force to find the criminal known as Tornado, they want [...]

Nothing Like the Holidays

Holiday movies frequently bring families together to share their life stories and reveal things to each other that were here to fore unknown by the others. This film follows that tried and true storyline with a twist. This family surprises us with compassion, caring, reconciliation and [...]

The Ten Commandments (Animated)

The animation in this film is impressive. It looks great. The colors are bright and vivid. The filmmakers also brought in some impressive talent for the voice-over work including Christian Slater as Moses and Alfred Molina as Pharaoh. It is narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley. The movie parallels the [...]
