DVD Review



I apologize for not being more active, but not having other reviewers or books to review, it's been a little difficult. However I want to let you know about this wonderful DVD "God's Not Dead." Working at the library I found it on our shelves and took it home. When I brought it back I raved about it. I wanted to take it out again, but it seems word gets around. It's always on hold for someone else. That's great.

The opening scene is in a freshman college philosophy class. The professor states he is an atheist, and asks that if everyone will sign a paper with 3 little words on it he can dispense of the dust and get to the subject. Those 3 words are "God Is Dead." One student cannot sign that. He is given 3 chances to argue the case of the existence of God before the class.

Fueled by hate on one side and a determined love of God on the other this is not your simple movie. The poor kid researches and goes off on a journey of his own to state his case. The end is nothing short of amazing. I guess telling people stuff like this is one of the reasons I can't get a hold of it a second time. It's really that good.

LEAGUE OF SUPERHEROES, by Stephen, Leon Rice


Saturday – The other pivotal character is Genie. Not only is she pivotal to the book, she is at the center of it, even more so than our superheroes. This is because of their strange introduction over the Internet (kiddies don't try this at home), the age she gives herself compared to the knowledge she possesses, and her ability to design and create these supersuits themselves. All in all, she is one fantastic character. I'm not sure I've seen a more unusual charater written into any story. Genie says she's seven years old. Fine, makes sense, after all she was on KidChat and sounds like a girl, plus has a little animated girlie icon. Yet how many kids that age don't know about people, particularly parents? How many little girls do you know that have literally no social interaction outside the Internet? And how many seven year old girls could comprehend the techno-heroes, assimilate their concepts into design and actually build these supersuits? Not many I bet. I mean, this little girl has to have a grasp on quantum physics way beyond what even most current scientists have. Yet is she simply a computer that talks? It begins to baffle you when you find out that if she is a computer, how is it she experiences emotions? Computers can do basically one of three things. They can validate something or invalidate something or pass the information around for another check. That's it. Yes or no, or check it out again. That is all a computer can do. Yet Genie is absorbed into the fantasy world of these geeks so that she helps fulfill their fantasy. She can cry as well as laugh. She can show compassion as well as anger. If this isn't a computer, it must be one very special girl. Or is it something else we haven't even thought of? I'll let you find out for yourselves. I enjoyed having this mystery over my head for most of the book. It gave it a persona that is rare today. So what are you waiting for, go out and buy the book already? - David Brollier

Hi there. Just thought I'd drop by, albeit a couple of months late, and note my review of League of Superheroes. I was fortunate enough to win a copy of the book during the November blog tour and have just now finished it. My review is posted on my blog at http://xanthorpe.livejournal.com/14570.html

Keep up the great work!
