2.5/4 75% The Keeping Room (2015) The performances are strong, the scenes and sets authentic, the camerawork excellent. Though parts of the film are difficult to watch, it is beautifully composed and filmed. Now if only I could say the same for the dialogue.‐ Christianity Today

3.5/4 80% Time Out Of Mind (2015) Moverman and cinematographer Bobby Bukowski let their shots linger long, almost uncomfortably so. But that's the point. This film forces you, like George's character, to wait for something to happen.‐ Christianity Today

3/4 100% Top Spin (2015) As the Olympic trials draw near, it's fun to watch them really go for it, and you'll be rooting for them to make the team. And no matter what happens next, their childhoods remain sane and very intact.‐ Christianity Today

3.5/4 81% Infinitely Polar Bear (2015) Ruffalo, one of our best actors, has proven that he can handle just about any role thrown his way.‐ Christianity Today

3/4 71% Jurassic World (2015) Here's the thing: You can wrestle those Big Questions, if you want. Me? I mostly just wanted to see how awesome dinosaurs would look with today's CGI. And people running for their lives.‐ Christianity Today

3/4 83% I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story (2015) Charming and fascinating.‐ Christianity Today

2/4 24% Little Boy (2015) There are too many messages here, and too many of them mixed or conflicting.‐ Christianity Today

3/4 57% Woman in Gold (2015) Mirren is her usual stellar self, but the pleasant surprise here is Ryan Reynolds.‐ Christianity Today

2.5/4 32% Chappie (2015) [Blomkamp is] back on track with Chappie, the latest in a long line of films about how artificial intelligence inevitably morphs into something far beyond what its Makers -- er, programmers -- intended, sometimes with a sinister turn, sometimes not.‐ Christianity Today

2.5/4 81% McFarland USA (2015) You'll root for these underdogs, all right, but hopefully for deeper reasons than just winning races and leaving those jerk opponents in their dust.‐ Christianity Today

3.5/4 64% Still Life (2015) The film ends with a beautiful scene that will tug at your heartstrings.‐ Christianity Today

3/4 83% Predestination (2015) Like me, you'll probably feel inclined to watch it again.‐ Christianity Today

2.5/4 13% I Want Your Money (2010) Like a Michael Moore documentary, Griggs plays fast and loose with statistics -- enough to raise my own B.S. Meter and lower my trust. I kept asking, "Is this the whole truth?" ‐ Christianity Today

3/4 11% Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (2008) The film shows that Intelligent Design should be on the table for discussion. But if you're looking for ammo to argue your Darwinist friends under the table, look elsewhere.‐ Christianity Today

3/4 74% Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas) (2006) This true story seems like it can only be explained as 'a God thing,' and indeed, how else could something so extraordinary take place without divine intervention?‐ Christianity Today

4/4 81% Friday Night Lights (2004) You'll leave the theater somewhat emotionally spent -- feeling like you've been tackled by a 220-pound linebacker -- but it's worth the ride. One of the best sports movies ever.‐ Christianity Today
Posted Sep 22, 2006
3/4 64% Coach Carter (2005) Its main flaws are an overabundance of sports-movie clichés and hackneyed phrases, but at least the final game doesn't have a predictable ending; I'll give it that much.‐ Christianity Today
Posted Sep 11, 2006
2.5/4 26% Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius (2004) The film has its sappy, predictable moments, but the gorgeous cinematography, apt direction and fine acting more than compensate. Think of it like Chariots of Fire on the golf course.‐ Christianity Today
Posted Sep 8, 2006
2.5/4 61% Wimbledon (2004) The story plays out predictably with a happy ending -- think The Natural on Wimbledon's Centre Court -- and all in all, it's a decent romantic comedy.‐ Christianity Today
Posted Aug 25, 2006
3.5/4 55% Glory Road (2006) It's Remember the Titans on the basketball court. Count it right up there with the best of Disney's fine sports flicks. ‐ Christianity Today
