The Avengers: Infinity War

When Thanos, the over-arching villain of the Marvel universe, sets out at last on his mission to recover the six infinity stones, it becomes clear that all else pales in comparison to the task to stop him. Doing so requires assembling a team of all the heavy-hitters, and I mean all of them.  [...]

Thor: Ragnarok

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The Avengers' strongest hero, (unless the Hulk has something to say about it) is back to the big screen in Marvel's newest piece of superhero fun, Thor: Ragnarok. Thor's latest flick is very different from his first two installments, but the eye-candy action and relatable Marvel humor will make you [...]

Now You See Me 2

For those of you who remember the first film in this series, you are in for much of the same deceptions, distractions and misdirection that you saw previously. The plot continues one year from the previous film's conclusion and features the story of the magicians knows as the Four Horsemen. A new [...]

Shutter Island

"Shutter Island" is a film loaded with atmosphere, from the pelting rain against the windows, the stormy seas, the dark corridors of the mental institute, to the lighthouse which is surrounded by grey skies and water washing up on the jagged rocks which surround it. There is even a cemetery scene [...]


Depressing. Dark. Bleak. These are the words that came to my mind while watching this film. The viewer learns the plot is about a man who is infected by an unusual and sudden blindness, a "white" light blindness. It spreads rapidly to other victims. Soon a large group has to be quarantined and the [...]

“Zodiac” is less a film about a serial killer, and more about the men who attempt to discover the killer’s identity. Director David Fincher apparently wanted to make the film feel as long as the amount of time spent trying to catch the zodiac killer, which ends up being more than twenty [...]
