Hoodwinked Too! Hood Vs Evil 3D

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Hoodwinked Too!" features some incredible animated scenes including a nice cloudy scene in the place where Red is living during her training. They look like big cotton balls, soft and white and fluffy. And the kids no doubt will enjoy the almost non-stop action which revs up into high gear once [...]

Alpha and Omega

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is a charming tale about overcoming diversity. It is also a story about overcoming adversity. Kate (Hayden Panettiere) is an Alpha wolf and expected to be leader of her pack of wolves. She is even assigned an Alpha mate, Garth (Chris Carmack). Poor Humphrey (Justin Long) is an Omega wolf and [...]

I Love You Beth Cooper

I seldom become a bit angry while reviewing a film, but this movie shows a lot of irresponsible behavior and all I can say is shame on director Chris Columbus and writer Larry Doyle. A teen girl named Beth Cooper (Hayden Panettiere) drives recklessly throughout the film and at one point drives her [...]

Bring It On: All or Nothing – Filtered

August 8, 2006
"Bring It On- All or Nothing" features actors who definitely have talent, but unfortunately this movie takes it over the top. It seems like it would have been innocent movie as it involves high-school cheerleaders, but you can’t judge a DVD by it’s case. The dancing is extremely sexually [...]

Normal is a touching story of a man who struggles with thinking that he is a woman trapped inside a man's body. It takes you through the wrenching tale of how Roy has to deal with accepting himself for who he is, but dealing with everyone else he comes in contact with accepting him as well. I liked [...]

If You Believe

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

A time filler, “If You Believe” has little outstanding to recommend. The lead is so unlikable; you begin not to care about her. Although the story is set during the holidays, the producers have been careful to leave any mention of Christ’s birth out of the script. Even the Christmas songs [...]
