IRREPLACEABLE

(Click on name for movie details.)

 

"Irreplaceable" movie by Focus on the Family

"Irreplaceable" kick-off movie was released in theaters across the country on May 6th, 2014.

This movie is a kick-off to their video bible study called "Family Project". I expect it to have a greater impact even than their "Truth Project".From what I have seen in this movie trailer and what I know about the great organization of Focus on the Family, this should be a great movie and a fantastic video bible study.

The Jackie Robinson Story "42" (Original 1949)

(Click on name for movie details.)

(Desert Island Films, 76 mins, NR (our rating PG))
(www.desertislandfilms.com)

A movie biography of Jackie Robinson, the first black major league baseball player in the 20th century. The movie traces his career in the negro leagues (Kansas City Monarchs and in the major leagues (Montreal Royals and Brooklyn Dogers).

Jackie Robinson plays himself in this movie!

 

After Jackie Robinson was accepted, he became known as "The Pride of Brooklyn".

What prompted us to watch and review this old movie about Jackie Robinson was after we watched the new movie "42". We enjoyed the movie and would highly recommend it but we were disappointed that neither movie did a good job of showing Jackie Robinson's Christian faith.

The Jesus Movie

(Click on name for movie details.)

 

This Jesus Movie is the world famous movie about Jesus that has been shown all over the world in various languages. It has been used by a variety of Christian organizations to evangelize the world.

While this movie has wide publication, our choice for the best Jesus movie is Jesus of Nazareth. While effective for evangelizing, this Jesus movie was a low-production movie compared to other movies like Jesus of Nazareth which has better actors and photography.

Les Miserables

(Click on name for movie details.)

 

Les Miserables (PG13) (Our overall rating is a great 4 stars)

This is the best movie version of the classic, world-famous book by Victor Hugo.

You may hate the musical and stage theatrical version but you will love the movie (it is NOT a musical!!!).

While I knew about Victor Hugo's classic novel set during the French Revolution, I had never read it and when my sister treated me to the musical version of Les Miserables, I had decided I did not have to read this novel about the French Revolution. Not realizing that the modern musical and theatrical stage presentation, completely fail to show the greatness of this novel, especially ignoring the Christian themes that heavily permeate the story.

The musical and stage production emphasize the love story between the two young people, and celebrate that love in song and music, but fail to show the love of God and about how men can hate one another but also how some men, after receiving grace and mercy from others who love God, can then show great love and mercy and compassion to others.

The musical also fails to show adequately the difference between following the "letter of law" versus following the true spirit of God's law.

After watching this movie, I was eager to read the book. I hope you will enjoy this movie and the book as well as I have!

MAGIC OF FLIGHT

The Magic of Ordinary Days

(Click on name for movie details.)

 

The Magic of Ordinary Days (98 mins) (2005) (NR - PG13)

The "The Magic of Ordinary Days" is a Hallmark Hall of Frame movie. It has great photography, beautiful scenery, great acting and a redeeming story about the choice to love.

I have to admit, typical of Hallmark movies, it is a little slow but a great movie. And the opening scenes are very powerful and so once you start watching the movie, you want to continue to see how the story resolves itself. Also its only 98 minutes long. And if you are already a Hallmark movie fan - you will really love this movie.

The background music is typically Hallmark but not as distracting or put-you-to-sleep organ music of their early movies.

Starring lovely Keri Russell and handsome Skeet Ulrich and also starring Mare Winningham. All the supporting actors are well chosen and all the scenes are very believable and the sets are very well done. I enjoyed the movie immensely. I will need to review other Hallmark Hall of Fame movies.

The movie is not rated but we would rate it as PG13 due to the serious subject matter of an out of wedlock pregnancy. But choosing to love - never fails.

The DVD is a full-screen version with Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Closed Captions (CC) in English is available.

The DVD includes these extras:Biographies
Cast & Credits
About the Production
Conversations

and The Making of the "The Magic of Ordinary Days" where Keri Russell and Skeet Ulrich talk about meeting on the set for their first Hallmark Hall of Fame roles, and three-time veteran Mare Winningham shares here favorite Hallmark experience.
