Gifted
If you were extremely smart with an IQ that had the potential of literally changing the world, would you feel that you had a responsibility to act upon it? That is one of the questions raised in Marc Webb’s Gifted starring Captain America himself, Chris Evans. As a Christian, if I felt that God had giving me a calling to do one thing or another, I would (like to say) say “yes,” but in Gifted, the answer is a lot more muddy and the concept weighed down heavily on me while watching the film.

Is Genesis History?
Earlier in February of this year, the documentary, Is Genesis History? arrived in theaters for a one night event. It performed so well that two encore showings were added the next month. This week, the film is now available on DVD. Is Genesis History? is hosted by Dr. Del Tackett (who is the creator of The Truth Project) who interviews more than a dozen scientists and scholars challenging them about what the Bible says about creation and how it matches up to what popular science teaches. As they say, the answers may surprise you. READ MORE>>>



The Boss Baby
In our animated world where every cartoon character, board game and app gets their own movie, it’ nice to see Hollywood take a step back a bit and start from scratch. Okay, so The Boss Baby wasn’t completely built from the ground up. It was inspired by the children’s picture book of the same name by Marla Frazee, but the book only lays the ground work. Director Tom McGrath took it from there. Despite what you think the movie is about from seeing the TV commercials that only highlight the hijinks that little ones will appreciate, The Boss Baby is actually a lot more clever than it first appears. READ MORE>>>



The Zookeeper's Wife
Just when you think you’ve heard of every Holocaust story there is, along comes another one. How do you go about telling yet another story about World War II? By finding another story to tell that hasn’t been told before. In this case, The Zookeeper’s Wife sounds like the beginning of joke. “Hey, have you heard about the guy who saved a bunch of Jews by hiding them in his zoo?” But it’s all true.
Despite the movie’s title, this movie is all about one brave and heroic woman. It is actually a story about a brave and heroic married couple and the trials and challenges Jan and Antonia Zabrinkski faced while trying to do the right thing. Read more>>>


The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is one of the weirdest movies that I have ever seen and I loved every minute of it. It’s a nonsensical, unbelievable, CGI mishmash of a film that shouldn’t work, but it does. It is not only one of the funniest films that I’ve seen in a long time, but also one that has a heartfelt message to that will probably surprise everyone who goes to see it. Read more>>>



Beauty and the Beast
As Disney fans have been patiently waiting for the arrival of the new live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, news abruptly hit recently that caused some parents to second guess if they would be taking their children to see the new princess movie or not. In a recent interview with Attitude, director Bill Condon proudly proclaimed that the character of Gaston’s sidekick, Le Fou, is gay in the new movie. He described Le Fou’s character as “somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston” and admitted that the scene in question was a “short but explicitly gay scene.” In another article by USA Today,  Josh Gad, who plays Le Fou, said "I'm honored to have that moment as part of my character’s arc" but also said that "there was nothing in the script that said ‘Le Fou is gay.’" Read More>>>
