Freedom to Go 'n Grow Together in Christ
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8 (NIV)

(09/10/2019) Director Rian Johnson Brings 'Knives Out' Against Trump Voters. Suffice it to say, this is a movie to avoid when it opens - read the details at the link. Critics love movies that bash Trump supporters, just as they love movies that bash Christianity - and dislike overtly Christian movies. Don't bother with what the critics have to say. Overcomer is still doing well at the box office. It got a critics score of 46% at Rotten Tomatoes. Audience score? 98%. Who are you going to trust?
(08/28/2019) Strong opening for Kendricks' latest flick. Overcomer is from the guys who created War Room, Fireproof, Courageous and more. I hadn't even heard about it before, but it finished third on its opening weekend. Update (09/09/19): Still number 4. Rotten Tomatoes - 46% of critics like it, 98% of the audience does. Typical for Christian films and says a lot more about the ctirics than the audience.
(09/08/2018) New ‘Jack Ryan’ series blasted for pushing ‘masculine American heroism,’ ‘white male entitlement.’ The actions and pronouncements of our "elites" lead me to believe that our idiots could do a better job.
(08/31/2018) Neil Armstrong Biopic ‘First Man’ Omits Planting of American Flag on the Moon. Don't you see? It was a "human" achievement, not an American one. The fact that it was conceived by Americans, engineered by Americans, paid for by Americans and manned by Americans is apparently irrelevant.
(08/30/2018) Dennis Quaid Set to Play Ronald Reagan in New Movie. Here’s What He Said About Playing the Role. Suffice it to say that he is approaching the role with a good attitude.

(10/03/2016) New Pro-Life Film “Voiceless” Opens This Month, Here’s More From the Director and Star of the Movie. More and more Christian films are being released, but this trend won't continue if we don't go to see them.
(09/26/2016) Citizens United to Release Phil Robertson’s ‘Torchbearer’ in Select Theaters. Since it is not many theaters, we may have to wait until it becomes available by other means.
(05/01/2016) ABC's 'Once Upon a Time' Broadcasts Lesbian Kiss in Primetime.
(12/09/2015) FDR's Pearl Harbor Infamy speech, as Obama would deliver it today. Pretty funny, though he left out the part about being on 'the wrong side of history.'
(11/20/2015) I don't watch TV any more except for some sports and news, so I can't vouch for this. But is doesn't seem unlikely: ABC's 'Scandal' Sets Main Character's Abortion to 'Silent Night.' Give some serious thought as to what shows and what networks you support by watching their material.
(10/21/2015) Here is more on the movie Woodlawn. I hope to see and review it before the week is out.

(09/01/2015) New Christian movie 'War Room' stuns at box office. Perhaps there is a bit of hyperbole in the headline, but the article contains a lot of interesting info about the movie.
(08/25/2015) War Room is opening this Friday. Here is the trailer and more. I heard an interview with the director yesterday - it sounds like a must see. And maybe it can encourage all of us - especially me - to work harder in our prayer lives. All revivals have begun with believers on their knees.

(08/11/2015) ‘The View’ Adds ‘Full House’ Star Candace Cameron-Bure as Token Christian Conservative. Well, their rating are lousy, but it is amusing that adding people with mainstream conservative views means adding 'controversy' to the show.
(06/20/2015) Signed, Sealed and Delivered. Something actually good on TV. It is based in Denver and is very faith-based and Christian oriented. The latest episode is currently being broadcast over the next week. Earlier episodes may be found by checking On Demand if you have that capability.
