Lone Survivor: A Film of Counterfeit Patriotism and Ungodly Aggression

CNN host Jake Tapper’s interview with the subject of the Mark Wahlberg film Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell, became tense on Friday when the veteran of Operation Red Wings apparently took offense at Tapper’s suggestion that the botched mission was a mistake. Luttrell defended his fellow veterans who lost their lives in that operation and asked […]

Murph, the Protector: The True Story of Navy Seal Lt. Michael P. Murphy

Think about this guy before you applaud some famous actor or actress for a performance. This is a performance. The difference here is that it is real life, not scripted by self-serving screenwriters from the dung heap we know as Hollywood.

Obama: Taking America Down

The film, ‘2016’ was released the summer of 2012 and asked a basic question: What might America be like in 2016 if Barack Obama were re-elected to a second term? In the film, many predictions were made regarding Obama’s presidency. None were positive. Now, looking back since the film’s release, Dinesh D’Souza reviews those predictions, […]

And Noah Had An Aussie Accent

This should be interesting. Darren Aronofsky’s epic film, Noah, starring Russell Crowe (as Noah), Jennifer Connelly as Noah’s wife, Naameh and Anthony [“hsssst”] Hopkins as Methuselah, as well as Emma Watson and Ray Winstone as the bad guy who wants to stop Noah. The bad guy dies in the end. Sorry, I’ve read the book. […]

Film: GMO–What’s On Your Plate?

GMO director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we […]

Mogadishu: Remembering Black Hawk Down

Today is the 20th anniversary of an intensely fought battle in Somalia. But this is not just a story of war, survival and death. It is also a story of trusting God, faith and a realization of the importance of eternity, as told by one of the Rangers who led the charge in battle. The […]

Grace Unplugged…Plugged.

It seems like everyone is pretty excited about the release of the new film, Grace Unplugged. I have no doubt this film will be incredibly popular. From the Grace Unplugged facebook page: Grace Trey aspires to more than just singing at church. When she begins tasting the stardom she’s always dreamed of, will it lead […]

Film: Molon Labe

“History has demonstrated time and again that, to the degree citizens are unarmed, government suppression and tyranny are inevitable. The Founders of the United States knew these lessons well. This is why the U.S. Constitution not only grants American citizens the "right to keep and bear arms" — but the DUTY to be well-organized as […]

Lincoln, the Movie

Well, Stephen Spielberg has done it again, no doubt. This film on Lincoln has all the promise of a blockbuster hit this coming November. Even if it’s a huge, big fat lie from the Lincoln cult celebrated not only in Hollywood, but within academia and in the general public (educated by ignorant public educators). It’s […]

When Life Seems to Fall Apart

We’ve all been there at some point. Everything is going along just fine, and then…it happens. It’s a moment that will stay with you for some time, maybe years, perhaps for the rest of your life. Whatever ‘that moment’ was in our lives, we were tested, and through it all, hopefully, we learned to persevere […]

Eat or We’ll Both Starve

The story of Mississippi’s Taylor Grocery, and proprietors Lynn and Debbie Hewlett.  It’s hailed as the South’s best catfish joint and it has a brown bag policy.  Diners don’t mind waiting on the front porch for a table, sometimes for hours.

Movie: Act of Valor

Folks, this aint no chick-flick. Navy SEALS portrayed by…. active duty Navy SEALS. The story is fictional, but the weapons and tactics are totally real. As one man puts it, this film is “American exceptionalism on steroids.” Here is the film’s description: “When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of […]

Movie Trailer: Obama & America in 2016

Obama’s dream is not ‘the American dream’. It allowed his success, but it is not his dream. Obama’s dream for America is actually the ‘dream of his father’, not his own. So what might America be like in 2016 if he is re-elected? This may be the most intellectually prepared 14 minute presentation on Barack […]

Not the Braveheart I Remember

A Funeral Party

The film Get Low, starring Robert Duvall and Bill McMurray is based on a true story that took place back in 1938. The real Felix “Bush” Breazeale, a hermit of Roane County, TN (above photo) was determined to enjoy his funeral while he was still alive, and invited everyone who wanted to come to be […]

Bre’r Rabbit & the Tar Baby

A lesson in humility… Here’s part 2:

Movie Recommendation: Peter And Paul

Although the epic television series of 1981 may be aged, it has aged well, and the biblical narrative of course, is timeless. Peter and Paul, winner of two Emmy Awards, is one of those films we pull out of the cabinet on occasion and still enjoy – very much. Anthony Hopkins and Robert Foxworth portray […]

Film: Still Standing – The Stonewall Jackson Story

This new film documentary on the life of Stonewall Jackson looks great for the whole family. Jackson is one of those truly notable Christians in American history. From Franklin Springs Family Media: His legacy as a military genius is widely renowned. Now, in Still Standing: The Stonewall Jackson Story, his legacy as a man of […]
