Movie Review ~ Samson By Pureflix

Category Religious/Christian Genre Epic/Biblical Release Date March 16, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review Samson movie by Pureflix is a storyline particularly written to depict the life of the judge, Samson of Israel, with the purpose of drawing out the journey of a man which began from a place of self-imposed mediocrity to one of faith-based triumph. For the first time, Samson’s story is laid out in the manner that mirrors the faith which earned him a place in the “Hall of Faith,” as presented in the Book of Hebrews by the Apostle Paul of the early Christian Church. A touching story of pain, loss, regret, and ultimately, salvation, with the Scriptural aim to instill hope in believers, the story of Samson in this movie reveals the boundless nature of God’s grace capable of reaching into the deepest pits of failure to redeem whomever God chooses to show mercy, while also displaying the ever manifold power of His wisdom that is able to restore any broken destiny to its fullest potential in the midst of the …

Movie Review ~Priceless by Radiate Films

A man who has lost his wife and the custody of his daughter is unable to hold down a steady job. He agrees to drive a truck across the country, no questions asked…until he discovers what’s in the truck. Genre Drama/Romance/Thriller Release Date January 31, 2017 (Digitally) February 14, 2017 (DVD) Rating 3.5 Stars Review Priceless deals with the difficult topic of human trafficking. This story, in particular, emphasizes the worth of a woman (and her younger sister) who’ve been forced into prostitution by a human trafficking ring as a result of difficult life circumstances. It is also a story of redemption of one man who’s [almost] lost it all, and is trying to find his way back. In a twist of fate, their paths collide, and hell breaks loose soon after. Of worthy mention are the impressively believable characters portrayed by Joel Smallbone (James) and Bianca A. Santos (Antonia). The characters, James and Antonia, exuded intense screen presence, although, not as much could be said about the chemistry between them—at least not to the …
