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.

To Save a Life

In this hard-hitting and sometimes foul-mouthed story about two friends that let circumstances alienate them from each other we have a movie with a very solid Christian message, one that reaches the hard-core issues that face our kids today, and our families. This can be an uncomfortable film to watch, and at times rather gruesome, but it is a raw tale of desperation, loneliness, depression, and how the love of a friend can be revived even after death, but first the living friend must battle his own demons and work against the desires of his peers and the status quo of the church young people.

I found To Save A Life a totally awesome movie. Some of the photography could have been better, maybe even some of the acting, but overall it was done with great professionalism. More than that it isn't one of those movies that has everything all worked out. Yes, Jesus is the answer, but sometimes we still need to come to grips with life as twisted and horrible as we've made it. You plant corn you get corn. You plant thorns you get thorns. This is a story about a boy who planted thorns, and when the harvest came he found that all he had to show for it were bleeding hands. Follow him as he finds his way through a maze of social difficulties to find peace with God, and himself.
