actor: Kevin Spacey

Baby Driver

Baby Driver is something of the perfect vehicle for [director] Edgar Wright's filmmaking techniques. By mixing up musical styles and genres and setting the action to each accordingly, he proves that, as a filmmaker, he is a classicist in his inspirations, but a full-throttled progressive in his [...]

Nine Lives

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Nine Lives" is a hilarious comedy about a man who is a big mogul in almost everything in his life. He is so busy with his corporations that he does not have time for the real things in life like his family. Tom does not have time to take a call from his second wife, for remembering his young [...]

The Men Who Stare at Goats

"The Men Who Stare at Goats" is a semi-believable tale of a US military program gone awry. Ewan McGregor plays a reporter who wants some action in his life when his wife leaves him for his editor who lost an arm while covering the war. While trying to get into Iraq to cover the war, he runs into [...]

21

Gambling can be addictive and become a serious problem for some people. The characters in this film think they have it figured out because they are not "gambling", they are "counting cards and playing a system with definite rules". But the glitz, glamor and high of winning gets to even the most [...]

Superman Returns (2006)

November 28, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This film is pretty good. In my opinion it is a bit excessive at times in the special effects department; also, the story didn't settle down much, as there seemed to be too much to tell. Then again, Superman has been gone for five years in the film, and off the screen for many more years than that, [...]

Beyond The Sea – Filtered

January 7, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie was an interesting biography of Bobby Darin, but this 2 hour movie did seem to drag on toward the end. He was a singer and I really enjoyed all the music; that smooth Frank Sinatra style. The movie was really clean and all the junk was filtered out. The only thing to mention would be [...]

Beyond the Sea

January 7, 2005
Kevin Spacey did an excellent job writing, directing and acting in this film about Bobby Darin. The film is filled with wonderful music and sentiment. Darin overcomes a background of growing up without a father, being poor and having a bad heart. He shouldn't have lived to 15 much less 37. This a [...]

The United States Of Leland

The film addresses the pain of this world and how people choose to cope with it. It grapples with the sanctity of human life through its depiction of real-life events having to do with euthanasia. Drug use and drinking occurs throughout the film but is depicted as destructive. And there is [...]
