Joyful Noise

May 1, 2012

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Wow, what music! I was tapping my feet to this film's soundtrack. This movie contains some great music and features songs like "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" but with a spiritual flavor. It makes use of other secular songs in this way, including an energetic rendition of an Earth, Wind and Fire song, [...]

Dakota Fanning is amazing in this picture. Her [...]

Garretts Gift

Dove Approved for All Ages

Queen Latifah brings this simple story of “Garrett’s Gift” to life with her animated expression and captivating voice. This true story of Garrett Morgan, the inventor of the traffic light (among other things) is a wonderful way to introduce children to a not-so-well-known name. The movie [...]

Mad Money

When you put Diane Keaton in a movie along with Queen Latifah, you are going to get some laughs. Ted Danson and Katie Holmes have their moments too.
