The Oscars Road to Perdition
January 17, 2014

  Oscar 2014:  Senseless, Tasteless, Elitist Claptrap By Dr. Ted Baehr and Dr. Tom Snyder Hollywood just announced its 2014 Oscar nominations for 2013 movies, and we have to say that these are among the most disappointing Oscar nominees in years. The vast majority of the nominees are boring, uninspiring, tasteless, elitist, senseless, or politically correct. For example, in the Best Picture category, Oscar voters senselessly nominated sloppily made, mostly R-rated, and sometimes politically correct, adult dramas, often with disagreeable, unsympathetic characters. They only nominated two really superb movies, GRAVITY and CAPTAIN PHILLIPS. NEBRASKA had some uplifting moments, but its director foolishly refused to delete one obscenit...

Who Will Remember Allison?
Who Will Remember Allison?
January 15, 2014

  By George M. Weaver It was a beautiful Atlanta spring day in May 1987, but it was the worst day of my life. An early morning biopsy delivered the devastating news that my beloved wife, Allison, had breast cancer at age 34. It was, indeed, the worst day of my life to that point. Many worse days lay ahead. With a small tumor and no evidence of spreading, the initial prognosis was excellent. Just to be safe, Allison had aggressive surgery and six months of chemotherapy. Buoyed by condense in what seemed to be a guarantee against recurrence, we traveled to Charleston, the site of our honeymoon, to celebrate her recovery. Everything fell apart a mere eight months later when a bout of back pain proved to be a massive recurrence of cancer ...

Golden Globes – Wrong Again!!!
January 13, 2014

By Dr. Ted Baehr, Publisher & Ben Kayser, Managing Editor The Golden Globes has once again chosen to honor movies that don’t reflect that values or tastes of American audiences, or even moviegoers overseas. Sunday night, the 88 or so members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, through the Golden Globes, awarded their favorite movies of 2013, but they clearly weren’t the public’s favorite movies. To top it all off, the boring show contained inappropriate crude comedy and lots of narcissistic, Hollywood insider, self-congratulation. AMERICAN HUSTLE took home best Musical or Comedy. While it’s earned $118 million worldwide, it has largely disappointed audiences with its unsympathetic characters and vulgar storyline. A...
 

 
Patriotism at the Movies
Patriotism at the Movies
January 09, 2014

By Darin Miller, Contributing Writer No year at the movies is truly complete without a good war movie, and 2013’s LONE SURVIVOR goes wide this Friday, Jan. 10, in many theaters. Starring Mark Wahlberg, it’s the latest in a genre stacked with classics. The movie is based on a failed mission along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, where a Navy SEAL mission in Taliban territory became one man’s fight for survival. It’s an important addition to the genre. LONE SURVIVOR is a tale of overcoming adversity. Like BLACK HAWK DOWN, it’s a visceral portrait of the quality of our nation’s men and women in uniform – a group known for incredible courage and self-sacrifice. War movies are an incredibly successful genre partly because so...
 

 
5 Ways to Honor God While Watching Movies
January 07, 2014

By Ben Kayser, Managing Editor Growing up as a young kid with a big imagination in the midwest, my appetite for movies was anything but healthy. From a very young age, I would read and write reviews, pour over daily box office results, and beg my parents or older brothers to take me to the latest movie, any movie. Thankfully, I had parents who cared about what my siblings and I watched. It was a common practice in the Kayser household to read a review from MOVIEGUIDE® and do legitimate research on the media we were consuming. What impacted me the most, however, wasn’t a list of movies I was and wasn’t allowed to see (though that list was important). What influenced me and continues to impact me today was how my family watched movie...

By Evy Baehr, Executive Managing Editor Sony Affirm is making HEAVEN IS FOR REAL, based on the best selling novel. HEAVEN IS FOR REAL follows the story of a little boy, Colton, who literally dies, goes to Heaven, and returns. His accounts of Heaven are supported by verses from the Bible. Colton also tells his parents that he met his sister in Heaven, though he never met his sister because she died in his mother’s womb. Movieguide® had the opportunity to meet the real family in the story on the set of HEAVEN IS FOR REAL. The family shared that many people have been reached with the Gospel from the books, seeing the truth of life after death. They hope even more people will be reached when the movie comes to theaters on April 16. Fin...
