4.0 out of 5 stars Mom's night Out turns into a Romp, March 5, 2016
This review is from: Moms' Night Out (DVD)
As a Christian, I find most Christian movies annoying. They normally placate to the choir, and put the gospel message so far forward they sound incredibly scripted, like you're listening to a used car salesman read from an old Christian tract.

This movie is billed as a comedy and rightfully so. Is it predictable at times, yes, but many comedies actually are, but are still funny. There are a few laugh out loud moment in this, and it goes places i didn't think it would dare to go. It even pokes fun at the nauseatingly fake church lady, while having the truth of the message be delivered by the most "unlikely" character.

It was a lot less nauseating cute and less like a "human video" type of presentation than I thought it would be. I think many of the people that don't like it reject it because it has a smidgen of a Christian message to it. But compared to other Christian movies it doesn't beat you over the head with it, or sound scripted.

If you're not afraid of a Christian film that's kind of edgy, watch this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a masterpiece, could be the best Xian movie out there!, September 26, 2015
This review is from: A Vow To Cherish (DVD)
This movie is a masterpiece. It's a Christian movie, but not chuck full of stale platitudes and verse quotations; something I think that plagues the church today. What this movie features, is a family who is struck with grief, as they have to watch their middle aged mother/wife succumb to early on-set Alheizmers. The movie is simple, very realistic, and wholly authentic in depicting the toll it takes on the family. The film succeeds because of it's authenticity and is character driven. I am a Christian, but don't like many Christian movies that push the gospel to the forefront so much that it becomes more like a political agenda than a message...this movie centers on real life, and is moving because of John's dedication to his wife, which yes, is partially because of this faith. I love this movie, and everyone should see it!

Is it more glittery than in the photo? I don't think so, not if you zoom in. ;) But I don't think the glitter is excessive. I like this because I wanted a more Olde Fashioned Christmas design, and haven't seen anything like this in stores. And it delivers perfectly. It seems to be sturdy as well, for a tree skirt.

Does this play 3d movies? How do they look? Also, I don't have the Internet, but if I download games at my friends house, will I be able to play them back home?

5.0 out of 5 stars Like looking at Jesus himself!, June 16, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this is beautiful, perfectly sized for any room, and lighter than it looks in the photo here. You feel like you're actually looking at Jesus here. It is both beautiful and awe inspiring. I got a couple other pieces around the same time, and this is my favorite of the three. :)

2.0 out of 5 stars ummm wat??, March 21, 2015
This review is from: Selma [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
There is nothing to say someone can't make a movie about the civil rights movement. There is nothing to stop a million movies being made. But eventually the message is stale, and the world needs to move on. Wether the producers know it or not (or even care), pointing out racism can have the profound effect of making racism linger. It's like if I never let you forget something you did to me 25 years ago. It doesn't exactly help heal wounds. There is a fine line between remembering and festering. After watching the Oscars and seeing the actors/producers compare recent events in MO to the Civil Rights movement, I balked, and it only backed up my previous thoughts above. Equality and justice for all is surely needed, but to constantly remember the bad times, that has to eventually be put to bed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get rid of Toy Santa, and we have a GREAT movie..., February 27, 2015
This movie would've been perfect had there been more Elizabeth Mitchell, NOT plastic Toy Santa! In fact, what made the original film so cool was not the stuff at the North Pole, but the story about Scott Calvin becoming Santa and how it affects his family and daily life, often in a comical but grounded way.
Elizabeth Mitchell, while beautiful, was perfect in her role as the future Mrs. Clause/principle. I especially loved the scenes at the staff Christmas Party. I absolutely loathed the scenes with Toy Santa at the North Pole. If they wanted to put more drama or have a bad guy in the film, they could've just had someone else also vying for Carol's hand in marriage. Is it possible to love and hate a movie this much? I still have it in my collection tho, but mainly because of Elizabeth Mitchell. The third movie is an absolute turd that should never have been written!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, but not perfect., August 11, 2014
This review is from: God's Not Dead (DVD)
I liked the premise of the movie, and have personally encountered professor's that have mocked the Bible. Not to the level Josh Wheaton experienced (which is a fictional account based on real lawsuits btw). The arguments Wheaton brings up in defense of God are good, I could think of better ones even, but there are some pitfalls that are quite annoying. There's the obvious scripted dialogue, easily using scripture and christian catchphrases to create one dimentional characters and one dimentional theology (I will give you examples in the comments below if you ask, but won't here since most people don't have the attention span to read it all). That's in almost every Christian movie tho, so I was expecting it. What got super annoying was the shameless Newsboys and Duck Dynasty promoting, complete with scripted dialogue as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a relaxed fit, order two sizes up, July 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I agree with others who say order two sizes too large if you want a comfortable fit. It felt weird for me to order an XL, but they fit perfectly and I was instantly sold. I love these! I would not get your recommended size unless you want to look like a tool, or get off when girls/guys check out your bulging muscles in this shirt. You will be showing your shape off to the world no matter what that shape is, if you get your recommended size.

3.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining program but with some huge drawbacks., June 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I understand RS's style of teaching is by "immersion" but I'm not sure how that is helpful. This is a good program but the biggest (and significant) drawback is it doesn't tell you what exactly you are learning to say. You are shown a picture of a girl drinking out of a glass and just have to repeat what you hear. Easy enough, but you don't know exactly what you're saying about the girl and the glass. How is this a good way to teach grammar and language??
