The Virgins
Interview with Matthew Wilson
It's okay to show people who we are

Wilson: I want Christians to learn from the film it’s that it’s okay to show people who we are. All the characters in the film are fumbling their way through this walk of faith. If we tell the stories of how terribly we’re doing most of the time, that shows everyone why we all need Jesus. And in comedy, especially, you have to be vulnerable and show people messing up.

DVD Round-Up 7/22/14
Cesar Chavez, Hinterland, Rio 2
Transcendence, Wahlburgers

Several significant movies and one Welsh TV show drive this week’s available releases.

Boyhood
Becoming an Adult
12 years to make a really true to life film

What makes this more than a curiosity is the story itself—a story that grew along with the actors—and the realistic view it has of family and the various forces that come to play in raising a child into adulthood.

Planes: Fire and Rescue
Definitely Not On Fire
Saving the Lives of Strangers

In truth, even my kids found the movie to be a bit clichéd and predictable. However, it is occasionally funny, it does have some mildly exciting moments, and it does have a good heart. Formulaic though it may be, it’s still solid family entertainment.

Mood Indigo
Surreal Love Story
Imaginative visuals galore

I think Michel Gondry may be an acquired taste—and I’m beginning to get it. His imagination comes to the fore in Mood Indigo, a surrealistic romance/comedy/tragedy based on the French cult classic novel L’Écume des jours by Boris Vian.

The Virgins
Things Come to Those Who've Waited
Is this one of those stupid Christian movies?

As the couple plan their wedding, Nick finds out the army is shipping him off to Afghanistan the day after the marriage is to take place. Their very short honeymoon is complicated by a series of events which seem fated to keep them from consummating the marriage. “Why are you doing this to us?” Nick cries out to God in desperation.

The Reading Promise
Film Adaptation Of Alice Ozma's Best Selling Book "The Reading Promise"
Relativity and Walden Media To Produce

Ryan Kavanaugh and Deborah Giarratana (Machine Gun Preacher) will produce the film alongside Walden Media. Tucker Tooley will serve as executive producer.

Comic-Con 2014
Marvel Unveils Female Thor
New Ongoing Series Starting in October Reveals a Change to the God of Thunder

This morning on The View, Marvel announced a new THOR series, only Thor is not the male superhero we all know. A new Thor will be wielding Mjolnir and SHE not HE seems to be worthy.

DVD Round-Up 7/15/14
Hell On Wheels, Open Grave, Orphan Black

The Round-up returns! Hell on Wheels, Orphan Black

Snowpiercer
Knowing Our Place On The Train
This Year's The Matrix Or District 9?

A parable about class, and “enough,” this French graphic novel—translated by a Korean director and delivered by a motley crew of actors—provides an outstanding exploration and an entertaining ride that could lead to heaven… or hell.

The Perfect Wave
Surfing for Jesus
Finding God in Unexpected Ways

It is the story of a young man’s love for surfing. It is the story of a faithful mother’s love for her son. It is the story of young men and women falling in love. And it is the story of persistent love of God.

Comic-Con 2014
Marvel Studios Returns to Hall H

Marvel Studios never just has a panel at Comic-Con, they put on a show. We expect nothing less this year, and also speculate on what else they will talk about.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
A Thin Line Between Love and Ape
The Dark Side of Motivations, Hurt and History

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is more than just a mindless summer blockbuster. Beneath its ground-breaking CGI-work and explosive action, this film offers an incredible portrait of a developing Cold War that is reminiscent of any number of global conflicts (past and present).

Comic-Con 2014
FOX brings five movies plus big stars to Hall H on Friday

With Comic-Con two weeks away, details are now starting to come out on what to expect. 20th Century FOX has a two hour time slot Friday evening and are bringing some big stars with them.

Underwater Dreams
Learning They Can Succeed
Undocumented high school kids vs. MIT in robotics contest

In 2004, four undocumented Latino students from an Arizona high school traveled to California for an underwater robotics competition. The robotics club was basically started so the teachers involved could have fun with the kids after school. Their entry was made of PVC and whatever electronics they could afford.
