Did Guardians of the Galaxy 2 jump the shark?

**A MOSTLY SPOILER FREE REVIEW** I sat at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, watching the credits scroll by and waiting for the bonus scenes. I glanced at my friend and he had the same puzzled expression that I did. He asked, "What did you think?" I replied, "I'm going to have… Continue reading Did Guardians of the Galaxy 2 jump the shark?

Review: The Resurrection of Gavin Stone

Last night I had the opportunity to pre-screen The Resurrection of Gavin Stone. Actually, I had the opportunity last week, but due to some technical issues I didn't get to until last night.

It's about washed-up… Continue reading Review: The Resurrection of Gavin Stone

The Lego Movie: One of the most anti-Christian movies ever

This is a really difficult review for me to write. First let me say that I actually enjoyed the Lego Movie. My kids thoroughly enjoyed it. It's imaginative, high-energy, and exciting. I was also very impressed that the movie was created with actual Legos using stop-still animation.
