Reunion Available Now!

September 1st, 2014

Not too long ago, we reviewed a Christian film, Reunion on our podcast. Well, we're happy to say that this film is now available either on DVD or as a digital download. If you didn't listen to our podcast, you can be assured that you will not be disappointed in this amazing film. This may be my favorite film we've reviewed on the podcast so far, and while it may not have had a big budget or a star-studded cast of characters, it didn't need any of that to be one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. The synopsis reads:

"Reunion is a feature-length documentary film about a teenage mother (Kim Copple) who chose to give her daughter (SaraAnn Evans) up for adoption, and their reunion more than 25 years later. Surprisingly, Kim went on to marry the father, (Duane Copple) and they had 2 more children together. It is an amazing story of redemption and the marvel of 2 families becoming one. Kim trusted God with her little girl, and worked for more than 25 years in crisis pregnancy centers counseling other women to choose life. After all that time she was able to meet the daughter that she committed to God all those years before."

You can purchase this film over on their website here. If you would like to help support this film, they're trying to raise $1,400 so they can submit this movie into iTunes to reach an even larger audience! In the meantime, what did you think about this film? If you've seen it, or are planning on seeing it, let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

New Movie: Saving Christmas

August 27th, 2014

Kirk Cameron has announced another new film in the works! Saving Christmas, set to release in theaters across America on November 14th, is a deep look into some of the most common questions we as Christians face around Christmas time. The synopsis reads:

"This Christmas, have your family join with Kirk Cameron’s family and dive headfirst into all the dancing, celebration, feasting, imagination, and traditions that glorify the true “reason for the season.” Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas is an engaging story that will leave the audience with an understanding of a biblical basis for our celebrations, and the inspiration to stand strongly against a culture that wants to trivialize and eliminate the faith elements of this holy season. So take in the splendor; take in the majesty; take in the story. Take it all in … and let’s put Christ back in Christmas! Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas is in theaters for a limited engagement beginning November 14."

Even though Christmas is still a few months off, it's never too early to start celebrating and preparing! If you would like, you can learn more about this new film in our New Movies section. Also, be sure to stay tuned as we bring you updates on Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas!

Another Christian film is releasing in theaters today - When the Game Stands Tall! This film was produced by Affirm Films and will be appearing in theaters around the country starting today. The synopsis reads:

"When The Game Stands Tall – which tells the true story of legendary De La Salle High School football Coach Bob Ladouceur, (Caviezel), and his assistant coach Terry Eidson, (Chiklis), who took the Concord California Spartans prep team from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak from 1992 to 2003 that shattered all records for consecutive victories in any American sport.

Joe Finn was a local legend in the world of baseball, but a miserable failure as a husband, father, and friend. Now, seven years after leaving home, he returns just in time to say goodbye to his dying wife and hello to a son and a community who consider him as good as dead.

Intent on making his life right, he turns to the only thing he knows -- baseball. But Little League is all but unrecognizable in Miller's Gap, and parental involvement is at an all-time low.

But when they learn to rely on friends, teammates, and—most importantly—their faith and family, they discover how their battles can truly be won."

God's Not Dead Available Now!

August 5th, 2014

After a successful run in theaters, the popular film God's Not Dead was finally released today! You can now purchase this film on DVD, Blu-Ray or as a Digital HD download. If you haven't heard of this film, the synopsis reads:

Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn’t it just be easier just to write “God Is Dead” and put the whole incident behind him? GOD’S NOT DEAD weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions.

GOD’S NOT DEAD features a talented cast of actors including Kevin Sorbo (SOUL SURFER, HERCULES, ANDROMEDA), Shane Harper (GOOD LUCK CHARLIE, HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2), David A.R. White (BROTHER WHITE, REVELATION ROAD and JERUSALEM COUNTDOWN), and Dean Cain (LOIS & CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN), with special appearances by Christian super-band Newsboys and “Duck Dynasty’s” Willie and Korie Robertson.

This film was very well received, with many great reviews from well-known sources. We also hope to review this film very soon on the podcast! If you would like to buy the DVD, Blu-Ray or Digital HD version of the film, you can visit their website for more information. You can also learn more about this film in our New Movies section.
