The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, released on December 13, proves to be an outstanding first film in this new Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy, the second installment of which is scheduled to hit theaters December 2013. It brings J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic novel about Middle-Earth to life in a way that can be accomplished only through masterful use of plot elements, impressive technological advances, charismatic performances, and top-notch direction and cinematography.
Red Dawn, the remake of the classic 1984 film, raises numerous questions about the current awareness of American citizens of external (and internal) threats to their freedom.
In the new and beautifully animated six-minute film I, Pencil, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has brought to life Leonard Read’s I, Pencil, one of the classic essays of free-market thought in the 20th century.
Flight is a powerfully redemptive film that highlights the disastrous effects that substance abuse can have on one’s life. Denzel Washington aptly portrays a man who has seemingly hit rock-bottom until things take a dramatic turn for the worse, proving that man’s fall into depravity is a hard and dramatic one without bounds. Flight proves to be an exciting film with masterful direction and action and can possibly be one of this year’s best.
Pastor C.L. Bryant hosts Runaway Slave, a documentary based on the theme of modern day enslavement to the tyranny of government, and calls Americans to run away toward freedom.
Part 2 of the movie trilogy of Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged is, by turns, eerie, chilling, disappointing, and affirming. With twice the budget of Part 1, Atlas Shrugged Part 2 is broader in scope and adheres more closely to the original book. It also has a new cast. Many had high expectations. In some respects it succeeded; in others it didn't.
Kevin James is his usual lovable self in his latest family-friendly film, Here Comes the Boom, which he co-wrote and co-produced. Playing a teacher who loves his school so much that he is actually willing to put his own physical health on the line, James proves that there are no boundaries in his efforts to be entertaining.
While most Americans remain blissfully unaware, the United Nations “sustainable development” scheme known as Agenda 21 will affect virtually every area of life — and it is already here. A short new documentary about the UN plan, using the global organization’s own documents and other sources, explores the implications of this far-reaching agenda and what it means to you and your family.
Though Clint Eastwood’s performance at this year’s Republican National Committee was deemed questionable, his performance in his latest film, Trouble with the Curve, is not. Playing a baseball scout who is nearing the end of his career, Eastwood is rather convincing as a father who is interested in mending the broken relationship with his daughter. Trouble with the Curve is a wonderful story of redemption with an emphasis on a number of Christian values.
