Hardcore Henry

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

Selma

"Selma" is the title and town of this historic film, based on the real-life events surrounding a Civil Rights march on a bridge in Selma, Alabama. Blacks from Selma and across the country wanted to draw attention to the Civil Rights movement and, specifically, their right to vote. The result was [...]

The Incredible Hulk

This is a high energy and action-packed movie. You do get to catch your breath occasionally but not for long. There is a lot of fighting and explosions and a little blood in spots, but the film is so steeped in the Marvel comic-book feel that, although it is pretty well done, it can't be put on the [...]

Dark Water

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This film was very interesting. It was based on a true story although I do not know how closely it follows the rise to fame of the simple Jewish blacksmith, Zishe Breitbart (Jouko Ahola). It all starts with Zishe getting into a little fight in a restaurant because some men are making racist [...]

The Musketeer

The good: This is a great popcorn movie that older kids to teens can enjoy along with adults. Even though the Musketeers has been done before, this one adds a unique touch by adding the incredible choreographed fight scenes from Xin Xin Xiong. This is an interesting tribute in that it combines the [...]

Planet of the Apes

July 27, 2001
THE GOOD: . . . Producer Richard D. Zanuck greenlighted the original 1968 “Planet of the Apes” for Fox and is back to oversee Tim Burton’s direction this time around. The story is based on Pierre Boulle’s classic science fiction and is not a sequel or remake so much as another version. The [...]

Lucky Numbers

This dark and foul comedy unsuccessfully combine humor with brutal violence. Along with an unlikable mixture of characters, the script is peppered with obscene language, adultery, thievery and [...]
