Go Fish!

Dove Approved for All Ages

There are a number of lessons Sean O'Reilly's Go Fish! embeds in its environmentally friendly message about how a lowly parrotfish saves the day. Two of the most prominent morals of this story include how (what many might consider) the most menial work should be esteemed, and that anyone can curse [...]

The Book of Life

Dove Approved for All Ages

"The Book of Life" is an exuberant and entertaining movie! There is plenty of action and lots of fun for kids and adults alike. The film features themes such as being true to one's self, deceased loved ones are kept alive by our memories, and selflessness is what makes a true hero. Zoe Saldana [...]

Conan the Barbarian

Wow, I am glad that I did not see this film in 3D. I have never seen this amount of blood squirting and spurting in any other movie I have ever reviewed. Conan has been brought to 21st century film-making in a graphic and grotesque way. The violence and sexuality are completely over the top in [...]

“Tangled” takes place in a magical world were a girl’s hair has healing powers. In spite of being seventy feet long, our heroine’s “goldy locks” aren’t too heavy for this waif-like lass to carry around on top of her head. The characters in this children’s fairy tale exhibit some [...]

Season of the Witch

This film is filled with action and is entertaining to watch but from a family point of view, it falls short. It is strong in the violence area, featuring a few scenes of witches being hanged and then dropped into the water to make sure they're dead, along with some bloody sword battles and [...]

The animation in this movie is fantastic! I really enjoyed the color techniques used. The characters are very well rounded and dynamic. The theme of this movie is to protect the forests of our natural environment. The animation and characters are targeted for younger kids, but there are a lot of [...]

Hellboy 2: The Golden Army

"Hellboy 2" is a visual treat, with many interesting alien creatures and some top-notch action. The film also manages to humanize Hellboy a lot, the tough-as-nails fighter who is on the right side but tends to be a bit cranky. He does love Liz though, and she has a surprise for him which the [...]

In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Director Uwe Boll does an excellent job with his storytelling in this film. Thanks in part to some very good actors such as John Rhys-Davies and Ron Perlman, we care about these characters who soon find themselves forced into war against bloodthirsty beasts, as well as the menace behind them-the [...]


April 2, 2004
While this is a good-versus-evil story, the problem is that evil elements, such as psychic powers, are portrayed as useful tools for the good side. Fighting, violence and gore abounds in this Guillermo del Toro directed movie as do frightening images of demonlike creatures attacking humans and a [...]
