The Good Lie – Movie Review and Recommendation

When The Good Lie first came out I remember being confused about exactly what it was. I knew it was about the Lost Boys of Sudan and that it starred Reese Witherspoon. I couldn't figure out how those went together. I also wondered about the title, wondering what exactly a good lie was. Well, after…

Grace of God – Movie Review

Grace of God is a powerful sermon movie. The entire movie is literally a sermon. It opens with John Ratzenberger as a preacher delivering a sermon. He tells a story about a friend of his and that story is the movie until the very end when Ratzenberger closes his sermon. Peppered throughout the story are…

Creed of Gold – Movie Review

I've been following Creed of Gold for awhile so I was excited when director Daniel Knudsen contacted me about reviewing it. It is an action adventure story unlike any of the other Christian films I've seen. College student Adam Smith (TAYLOR LINDSEY) faces off against the entire international monetary system in a saga that begins…

Book Review – The Promise: Or, the Pros and Cons of Talking With God by Sean Paul Murphy

The Promise: Or, the Pros and Cons of Talking With God is a memoir. I don't believe I've ever read a memoir before, but I was familiar with several of Sean Paul Murphy's films and liked them, plus I'm a big fan of prayer, so I took advantage of the offer to get an advance…

23 Blast – Review and Recommendation

I've been following 23 Blast for awhile and was glad to have the opportunity to finally review it. I love movies based on a true story and this is one amazing story. 23 Blast is about a high school football star who is suddenly stricken with irreversible, total blindness. He must decide whether to live…

The Gospel of John – Movie Review

The Gospel of John - Faith Flix Favorites

I love when filmmakers take risks and try unique approaches to presenting their stories and getting them to their audiences. The producers of Lumo Project are definitely doing that. At first, as I began reading about the project, I wasn't sure exactly what it was. But the more I read, and then as I watched…

God’s Not Dead – Movie Review and Recommendation

When God's Not Dead first came out, I was offered the opportunity to attend an early screening, only I wasn't able to go. So I sent my daughter and her husband in my place. They loved it, which wasn't surprising since they're young, he's a minister, and they're both passionate about standing up for their…

Redemption of the Commons – Review and Recommendation

I first learned of Redemption of the Commons from Churches Making Movies Film Festival. It's an official selection this year and our movie The Good Book is a special presentation. I was impressed by the trailer, so I was excited when writer/director KT Terry contacted me to review it. Redemption of the Commons is the…

The War Within – Movie Review and Highest Recommendation

Wow! This has been a great week for viewing top notch movies. I was kind of afraid to watch The War Within because I'd seen nothing but positive about it and I thought surely it wouldn't be able to live up to all the praise. Well, it did. And more. It is in a word…

Love Covers All – Movie Review and Highest Recommendation

I love keeping up with all the latest faith-based films, checking out their websites, watching their trailers, following them on Facebook, then finally watching the completed movies. The only problem is that so many films don't live up to their hype. The trailers may look good, other reviewers may even like them, but then I…
