Dove Approved for All Ages

The Synopsis: After the murder of his father, a young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery.

Dove Approved for All Ages

This movie deserves its status as a classic! See it again or for the first time with your family. I am probably a good choice to review this movie because, unlike a ton of other people, this was my first time seeing this movie. My wife used to watch it with my son when he was three or four, and [...]

Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins

It is too bad that what could have been a family film, with a talented cast of African American actors, is a film that is so irreverent and wrapped up in sexual innuendos and language that the humorous moments are overwhelmed with content issues. These issues are what prevents Dove from awarding [...]

Santa And Pete

Dove Approved for All Ages

Dove Review: Santa and Pete begins in an almost Princess Bride way, where Grampa Nicholas (James Earl Jones) tells his grandson, Terence (Sadrathe Gillespie), the story of St. Nick and Pete in narrative style. Before becoming Santa, St. Nick was a Christian Bishop who traveled throughout Europe [...]

Fantasia 2000

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"2000" simply dazzles the senses. My favorite piece combines the sophisticated music of George Gershwin and the unmistakable linear style of Al Hirschfeld. “Rhapsody in Blue” is without question the quintessential sophisticated jazz piece of its time. Maybe of all time. And Hirschfeld’s [...]
