May 31-33, 2013       Select a studio's button to see that studio's 2013 Report Card A Not As Furious Weekend FAST AND FURIOUS 6 topped a second weekend as neither of the newcomers NOW YOU SEE ME, second place, or AFTER EARTH, third, could overtake it.

The next really big summer release appears to be MAN OF STEEL June 14. MONSTERS UNIVERSITY comes out June 2...

Jesus in Armani by Prof. William L. Blizek   The movie “5 Minuti” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UghevhHJSVU) expresses much of Christian theology in a mere eleven minutes. Barbara is about to jump to her death when she is approached by a handsome young man who turns out to be Jesus.

Should Christians Avoid All Movie Violence?
May 30, 2013

By Dr. Ted Baehr and Dr. Tom Snyder Our comprehensive movie reviews at MOVIEGUIDE®, the definitive family guide to movies and entertainment, not only tell parents the amount of foul language, sex, nudity, alcohol use, smoking, and drug use occurring in movies like the reboot of SUPERMAN and IRON MAN 3, they also tell them the level of violence the movie has.   Even so, however, people still get confused about the issue of violence.

They also use the inaccurate translation for Exodus 20:13, “Thou shalt not kill,” when the original Hebrew text actuall...
