‘This is Us’ Chrissy Metz Stars in Upcoming Faith-Based Film

MOVIES
Miracles still happen. That is the message of the faith-based film, Breakthrough starring This is Us’ Chrissy Metz. Based on Joyce Smith’s book, The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother's Faith and Her Child's Resurrection, Breakthrough tells the true story of an event that happened just four years ago.

Metz plays Smith whose 14-year-old son falls through the ice of a Missouri lake. He was trapped under water for 15 minutes and even after he was rescued, he had no pulse for 43 minutes. All seemed lost and Smith was told to come in and say her goodbyes to her son as there was no hope for the boy. But Smith refused to give up and continued to pray for her son’s complete recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. Not only did her son come back to life, but he is alive today telling his story.

Directed by Roxann Dawson and produced by DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven), Breakthrough also stars Josh Lucas, Topher Grace, Mike Colter…

‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ is Full, But Feels A Little Vacant


Review of "Hotel Transylvania 2"
(Sony Animation)
MOVIE REVIEW

When Hotel Transylvania came out in 2012, it was a delightful surprise about Dracula opening up his home as a hotel to monsters everywhere who have been in hiding for centuries. Drac had teenage daughter, Mavis, who was getting restless and wanted to spring her bat wings and see the world outside of the castle. What’s a vampire dad to do? Yes it was silly fun, but it also had a lot of heart too. In fact, it was a monster movie masquerading as a moving about a father letting his little girl grow up.

Hotel Transylvania 2 picks up a year or so later and covers the span of five or six years in less than an hour in a half. Vampire Mavis, (Voiced by Selena Gomez), marries her human boyfriend, Jonathan, (Andy Samberg), and we get to meet his parents Mike (Nick Offerman) and Linda (Megan Mullally). The wedding is held in the hotel of course. Next, the happy couple pull Dracula (Adam Sandler) aside to tell him that he is going to be a grandpa. He’s thrilled. Soon, the whole castle is baby-proofed. At Dennis’ one-year-old birthday party, Eunice (Fran Drescher), Frankenstein’s wife, gets a mild scolding for giving the baby a “My first guillotine” where losing a finger is part of the fun. But by the time Dennis turns five, he is still not showing any signs that he’ll become a full-fledged vampire. Drac thinks that he is just a “late fanger,” but he can’t help himself from constantly checking or testing Dennis.
