Movie/DVD Review ~ Unplanned By Soli Deo Gloria

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Drama/Politics/Moral Living DVD Release Date August 21, 2019. Rating 5 Stars Review Unplanned tells the true story of Abby Johnson, a young woman who climbs her way to the top in Planned Parenthood, one of the biggest organizations—from being a volunteer in her college days to a director of one of their clinics. Brainwashed to believe that her job reduced the number of abortions in the statistics, Abby dives passionately into her work, until one day she witnesses something during a procedure that leads her to believe that unborn children aren’t just “tissue that cannot support themselves outside the womb,” but that they really have life from the start. It’s a whole new journey for Abby, as she’s been responsible for over 22,000 abortions. In this movie, Abby tells her story to expose the hidden truths that Planned Parenthood doesn’t want the public to know—some, shocking beyond reason, and others, appalling beyond understanding. Abby, eventually, through a tough battle, is able to publicly underscore the fact that Planned Parenthood, indeed, try to …

Movie Review ~ Run The Race By Reserve Entertainment

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Drama/Sports Blu Ray/DVD Release Date May 21, 2019. Rating 4 Stars Review Run The Race is a story that takes you on a journey of two brothers with opposite beliefs and opinions about life, but with a brotherly love and bond that trancends their differences. Being thrown curve ball after  curve ball, together the two brothers weather the storms of life, leaning on each other for strength, until a storm comes along that shows one brother is able to stand firm because of his beliefs, and the other is eventually brought face to face with the abounding grace of God, and drawn even closer to Him by his brother’s life testimony; a final test of faith thrusts him into a realm where his faith in the all-loving God is cemented—a God Whose ultimate plan is better than that of both brothers—and dreams are fulfilled in a magnitude that spins an inspiring tale of the love and faithfulness of God, even with past sorrowful events not fully understood. Healing comes and extends to …

Movie Review ~ An Interview With God By Astute Films, Big Indie Pictures & Giving Films

Category Religious/Christian/Inspirational Genre Drama/Mystery Release Date August 21, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review A solemn, thought-provoking, but overall, hope-inspiring story that centers on the relationship between God and man and how this affects life on earth generally, as well as how it applies to individual living. An Interview With God presents a scenario where the all-knowing God seeks to help man dig deep into the questions of life that matter the most, but are rarely asked because of fear or negligence. Paul (Brendon Thwaites), the journalist, confronts God (David Straithairn) at first, with mockery questions, and subsequently, accusations, which God wisely points out the sources from which each unique issue arises. Interestingly, this story is not cliché at all, as it approaches the man-meets-God scenario with finesse and a unique twist that presents an altogether faith-inspiring message that is timeless. A well-rounded story!

Actor Scoop ~ Interview with Actress Sharonne Lanier

Movie (DVD) Review ~ Paul, The Apostle of Christ by AFFIRM Films

Category Religious/Christian Genre Bible Epic Release Date June 19, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review A touching and stunning story of the friendship and brotherhood of Apostle Paul and Dr. Luke (the writer of one of the gospels and some of Paul’s letters). This scripted story of Paul aims to and shines bright Christ’s love, faith, and hope that is able to overcome all tragedies and sufferings, and demonstrates the unfailing joy that sustains the souls of true believers in such sufferings, inspiring them (and us) to persevere because, our hope is alive and undying even in the darkest of times, and that God’s joy, indeed, is the source of our strength—what a powerful theme for such a time as this!  In applaud of the DVD version, it is worth mentioning the special features on the DVD that accompanied the motion picture, because, they not only showcase the other wonderful works by AFFIRM FILMS (previews), they also bring to light the elements that helped visually amplify the story and its message in a fashion that pierces the soul—and …
