The Miracle Season

Dove Approved for All Ages

Live Like Line. These are the words that echo in my mind weeks after seeing Miracle Season. Not what you live like, or what attributes people use to describe you, but what legacy did you leave behind, and is it one others should mimic? Based on an inspiring and tragic true story, Miracle Season [...]

"Empire Falls" is a story about a man and his dream of starting his own restaurant while dealing with a controlling boss at the Empire grill he manages, a wife who left him and a daughter that is dealing with problems in school.

Curse of the Jade Scorpion

January 29, 2002
Well, here’s one of those days where it must be getting a bit chilly in Hades. I’ve just seen a Woody Allen film that didn’t have any foul language, not even his idiosyncratic misuse of Jesus’ name at the end of each frustrated observation. Nor is there any religion bashing. Nor is he [...]

Curse of the Jade Scorpion – Filtered

January 29, 2002
This movie is full of people having affairs and one night stands while drinking themselves into a stupor. Even Woody Allen's trademark comedic style falls flat in "Jade Scorpion," with very few genuinely funny moments in the film. Of course, with most of the characters seemingly alcoholics, one man [...]

Cast Away

Once again, Hanks proves his worth as a movie star. Giving us a fully dimensional characterization (a rarity in films nowadays), we not only learn how to survive along with him, but we sense his understanding of the sanctity of life. A very important message is revealed in the film, no matter how [...]

What Women Want

Mel Gibson demonstrates a flair for comedy in this new Paramount release. It is a nice romantic film, diminished only by two irreverent uses of Christ’s name and a few minor obscenities evidently placed in the script to avoid the dreaded G-rating. Although it does contain a few crude [...]

Pay It Forward

“Pay It Forward” is an engaging, uplifting film that purports a selfless deed can alter the lives of others forever. Unbeknown to the film’s young hero, his caring acts for others catch on, leading people throughout the country to do the same. Once again, Hunt and Spacey give [...]
