This is an action-packed movie from the get go. Kirk saves Spock from certain death from a volcano but a primitive race sees the Enterprise and Kirk gets into trouble for disobeying a Prime Directive. Even Spock seems to be against him for the rescue! Kirk is stripped of being captain of the [...]

Cowboys and Aliens

I must admit to being wrong about my trepidations about this movie's plot. I was concerned it might come across as a totally preposterous plot. The truth is, the movie is very entertaining and what I am frustrated about is the strong language and the fact the violence level hits a level three in [...]

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

This film makes the mistake of overkill. It lasts two and a half hours and could and should be trimmed down to ninety minutes. There are way too many fights and battles as well. I know a lot of young people and "Transformers" fans enjoy the battles, and the special effects in this film are amazing, [...]

Transformers (2007)

Mission Impossible lll

Director JJ Abrams keeps his audience on the edge of their seats in this latest episode involving the IMF team. The action is non stop even if the suspense is a little lacking. I was impressed with the emotional qualities of the film and how the action played off of the relationships. While very [...]

The Legend of Zorro

January 31, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"My family is my life" is Zorro's new slogan and he means it. Director Martin Campbell could have gone either way with this fun filled, action-packed saga. While he may have come close to pushing the limits with this film, he manages to reel himself in several times and presents the viewer with an [...]
