Words on Bathroom Walls

July 31, 2020
Adam knows he's different, that the people he sees and the things he sees aren't actually there, but as with most bouts of truth, there's still a daily struggle to accept what's real. After accidentally hurting another student in the chemistry lab, Adam is taken to the hospital where he is [...]

Book Club

As I consider the book club I am about to join for the summer, I am certain we will not be reading 50 Shades of Grey, unlike the main characters from the newly released film Book Club. The youngest of this crew are Mary Steenburgen (Carol) and Don Johnson (Arthur), both in their upper 60s; everyone [...]


The stage is set for the audience, and it's a stage that might feel close to home for many: by the year 2019, chaotic storms of titanic magnitude have torn much of the world apart, and the future seems desperately bleak. In a last-ditch effort to save humanity, world leaders managed to work [...]

For Greater Glory

June 12, 2012

Dove Approved for 18+

"For Greater Glory" is a story of great violence—and great faith. The movie opens in Mexico in 1926, a few years after a revolution. A precarious relationship between the Mexican government and the Catholic Church deteriorates as President Plutarco Elias Calles (Ruben Blades) strictly enforces [...]

Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is one the kids will love! "That's the greatest movie ever!" a young boy said as I was leaving the theater following the early screening. I don't think I will go that far, but kids and parents can enjoy this one together. George Lopez winds up with most of the good lines, as he voices Papi, [...]

Smokin Aces

Oh my goodness. This film should have been entitled "Craps - you lose" or "Snakes Eyes- you lose" because the audience certainly is the loser in this over-the-top violent, obscene, crass, miserable film. In the first few minutes before the opening credits you have 8 f-words, 1 Cr*st, and 3 [...]

Oceans Twelve

It was going to be quite a challenge to produce a movie just as good as or better than “Ocean’s 11”. With all the big stars cast again, plus the addition of Catherine Zeta Jones, it was quite possible. However, it just wasn’t to be. Ocean’s 12 doesn’t live up to the hype, and should [...]

Oceans Eleven – Edited

August 25, 2003

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is a good edited version, but the entire film glorifies this robbery attempt. It says the bad guy here is the casino owner and not those who are trying to rob him. So, if you can get around that, this is a very good "gangster" film. While I did not see the original Ocean's Eleven with some [...]

The Godfather III – Filtered

October 9, 2001
This movie was three hours long but it actually didn't seem that long. The movie kept your interest. It had a good story line. The movie did have a lot of violence to it, and a lot of it wasn't kept clean. You could tell where they were saying bad language, but it was all edited [...]

Dead Again – Filtered

June 21, 2001
In "Dead Again," the entire movie is based on reincarnation as the main characters try to figure out a murder that they are involved in, in their past lives. There are several uses of hypnosis along with the mention of karma. There is some onscreen violence that results in death and a man smothers [...]
