Movie Review ~ The Case For Christ By Pureflix

About the Movie A hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting recently earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things weren’t going nearly as well at home where his wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed—or didn’t believe—as an avowed atheist. Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true. Based on Lee Strobel’s award-winning bestselling book and starring Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Faye Dunaway, and Robert Forster, THE CASE FOR CHRIST is now showing in theaters. It’s an ideal Easter-season movie for anyone who has ever pondered the existence of God … and what role He could play in their lives.

Movie Review ~ God’s Not Dead 2

About the Movie From the college classroom of GOD’S NOT DEAD to the public square in GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less with each passing day. If Christians don’t take a stand today, will we even have a choice tomorrow? Welcome back to Hope Springs … home not only of Hadleigh University, but also Martin Luther King Jr. High School, where beloved teacher Grace Wesley helps students understand and enjoy history. Her love of teaching, her love for her students, and her love of life all come from the same place: her love of Christ. So when Brooke, a hurting student grieving the loss of her brother, reaches out to Grace, their coffee-shop conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing the hope she finds in Christ. When Brooke later asks an honest question about Jesus in the classroom, Grace’s reasoned response lands her in big trouble—almost before she even finishes giving her answer. With the principal and superintendent joining forces with a zealous civil liberties group, Grace faces an epic court case …

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 …

Movie Review ~ Children of War

Movie banner Category Short Film/Inspirational Genre Drama/Romance Rating 3.5 Stars Review This movie is beautifully far more complex than the simple story it presents! It shows the richness and pride in culture, heritage and family, while telling a tale of love, forgiveness, failure, redemption and healing. War, West Virginia, is a place that appears to have been forgotten, but not by its folks who are proud of its history and contribution to America. It is quite refreshing that it was set there, rather than in a big city, showing the goodness of a town left behind in ruins after so much positive input from it, into the lives of its people and America as a whole. The Children of War aims to tell not just a love and family story, but one of pride that comes from culture and heritage. My only regret is that it’s a short film without the length to further develop this unique story and explore its charming setting—rocky mountains, quiet ponds, and a whole lot more! As for the dialog/scenes, there …
