Movie Review
Guest The Hunger Games Titled Wrong?

Movie Review
Basic Heaven is For Real Movie Review

I was honored to be sent a “screener” version of the upcoming film, “Heaven Is For Real.”  I have to admit, I had not read the book, so I was coming from a completely open-minded position. I was thoroughly impressed.

Movie Review
Guest Around the World in 80 Days Movie Review

Overall, a fun film to watch. Packed with fanciful inventions, multiple cultures, and traditional good guys and bad guys. If you are seeking a modern update on the Jules Verne book, you'll be disappointed. This isn't a "don't see" film, however I'd hesitate to recommend it to families in my church.

Movie Review
Guest Bionicle: Mask of Light Movie Review

This is a movie review about a recently released video by Legos based on their very popular Bionicle toys.

Movie Review
Guest Finding Nemo Movie Review

Finding Nemo features several points of application that make for great discussion in your children’s ministry. Take advantage of this film to teach important lessons your kids will never forget. Here are a few I left the movie tonight thinking about:

Movie Review
Guest Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Movie Review

The much-anticipated movie adaptation of the thrid volume of the Harry Potter series has hit theaters. Prisoner of Azkaban is definitely darker than its predecessors and it strays from the kind of adherence to the book that we have come to expect from the Harry Potter movies. It was still enjoyable and leaves you hoping for better when the next Harry Potter movie comes around.

Movie Review
Guest Home on the Range Movie Review

Home on the Range, though entertaining, lacks the quality that is expected from Disney. Nonetheless, children who do see it will enjoy it, and there is enough humor injected into it to catch the attention of attending adults.

Movie Review
Guest Shark Tale Movie Review

Oscar has aspirations of living big and his schemes usually fall short. However, since claiming to be a "Shark Slayer," Oscar has been living it up! But it's only a matter of time before this scheme comes crashing down!

Movie Review

Movie Review
Guest The Polar Express Movie Review

The Polar Express promises to be a true family movie and a Christmastime classic.

Movie Review
Guest The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie Review

This much-anticipated movie starring the world's most favorite yellow sponge was a great disappointment to this SpongeBob fan and proves inappropriate for younger viewers.

Movie Review
Guest The Three Musketeers Movie Review

Mickey, Donald, and Goofy star in an animated version of The Three Musketeers. Not a cartoon masterpiece, but a film that possesses good teaching points about teamwork and the body of Christ.

Movie Review
