This film portrays a beautiful love story during difficult times in America's history. Inge comes to the United States Midwest to marry a farmer, Olaf. However, no one will grant them a marriage license because of Inge’s German heritage, a sensitive topic among Americans during the 1920s. [...]

O

The storyline in "O" is based on Shakespeare's "Othello." The movie has many strengths that are unfortunately overtaken by its shortcomings. ..... Thankfully, “O” is not a contemporary group of actors butchering the bard's original dialogue as was attempted with miserable results in [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"The Wednesday Woman" is suspenseful and well acted, but I found the teleplay to be ultimately unsatisfying. The lead is unlikable and unrepentive. She has several serious mental disorders that I feel were barely addressed, let alone solved by the film’s [...]

Perfect Murder, Perfect Town

Although this miniseries gives us an incisive look at the investigative process and credible performances, I can’t bring myself to recommend it for family viewing. The drama does ask and explore probing questions about this complicated case, but the gruesomeness of finding a lifeless corpse and [...]

Kevin wished his family would disappear and when it [...]

Fun for the entire family. This is a great comedy, full of great slapstick comedy and a great message of what family really means. Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern are wonderful as the "wet bandits". Culkin gives a fanstastic performance as the Home Alone child defending his home against the [...]
