Movie Reviews

Want to think more deeply about movies? Here you will find reviews and commentary from a Christian perspective (the name of each reviewer is in parenthesis). What you won’t find here is a recommendation of whether or not the film is worth seeing. Rather, what follows are discussions intended to provoke your thinking and grow the way you watch films. If you need information on the appropriateness of a film for family viewing go to www.kids-in-mind.com or for critical consensus check out Rotten Tomatoes.
