HORTON HEARS A WHO
HORTON HEARS A WHO is an uneven adaptation of the famous story by Dr. Seuss about the elephant who hears a tiny voice crying in the wilderness and declares, “A person’s a person, no matter how small!” HORTON HEARS A WHO is sometimes entertaining and humorous movie and sometimes dull and annoying when it dilutes its message of faithfulness, compassion, self-sacrifice, and looking out for others with some Romantic, politically correct messages.
THE GIVER is a science fiction movie about a young man who defies a tyrannical society that forces people to get rid of their painful and happy memories. THE GIVER is an absorbing, inspiring fable with no crude content and a pro-life message, with a strong Christian, moral worldview attacking authoritarian humanist governments, mixed slightly with some light Romantic, pagan elements.
In OCTOBER BABY, a teenage girl who learns she was born from a botched abortion must find the love of Jesus Christ to heal the pain she feels. Once the script comes together, OCTOBER BABY becomes incredibly compelling and shows that forgiveness can only be found in Jesus Christ.
GOSNELL: THE TRIAL OF AMERICA’S BIGGEST SERIAL KILLER
GOSNELL: THE TRIAL OF AMERICA’S BIGGEST SERIAL KILLER is a shocking expose of the horrible activities and unclean practices of an inner city late-term abortion doctor in Philadelphia who was found guilty of murdering several babies in his clinic after they were born. GOSNELL contains some foul language and disturbing content, but it’s a compelling, well-acted drama from a pro-life moral perspective that also exposes the lack of oversight by the health departments in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania when it comes to abortion clinics.
MEET THE ROBINSONS
MEET THE ROBINSONS is an animated movie about a boy genius, Lewis, who escapes from a villain into the future, where he has to rebuild a time travel ship before a mysterious, eccentric family from the future disappears. MEET THE ROBINSONS tugs at the heartstrings and tickles the funnybone. It also has a very strong moral worldview.
AMAZING GRACE is the story of William Wilberforce who, after a young life of debauchery, came to Christ at the age of 25 and believed he was called by God to stop the slave trade and reform morals in England in the 18th Century. The acting, directing and production values in AMAZING GRACE are superb. It also has deep, soul-stirring Christian references to the sinfulness of people, the salvation of Jesus Christ, and the divinity of Jesus Christ, with frequent renditions of the great hymn “Amazing Grace.”
UNPLANNED is the incredible, powerful true story of Abby, a young woman who gets drawn into working for Planned Parenthood because she thinks that the goal is to help prevent pregnancies. UNPLANNED is extremely well made and powerful.
AUGUST RUSH is an inspiring movie about a gifted boy who believes he can find his parents through music. The movie is redemptive, glorifies God as the giver of great talent and presents a pastor as one of the heroes, but it does open with a child being born to an unwed couple.
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE is the Christmas classic starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed about the struggling owner of a small-town savings and loan company who’s at the end of his rope but, with the help of a bumbling but lovable angel, discovers he’s the richest man in the world! IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE is arguably the best movie ever made. It’s certainly the most uplifting movie ever made, an instant masterpiece by Director Frank Capra with brilliant performances by Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, and a cast of terrific character actors.
THE BOSS BABY
THE BOSS BABY is a delightful, funny animated comedy. Seven-year-old Tim has a perfect life until he gets a baby brother and together they must stop a powerful, nefarious organization trying to replace cuddly babies with cuddly puppies. BOSS BABY is a hilarious, ultimately heartwarming movie with a strong Christian, moral worldview that’s pro-life, pro-family and pro-business.
