Heart-warming, hysterically funny and honest. Definitely worth a watch for the 20-somethings.
I love it they make me fell good at home and loved. Please God help me with my family help them get together and come to hillsong
Great movie,all the Tarantino usual violence but a plot + comedy.Well worth a watch.
This Movie is the best of 2013!! Absolutely hysterical!
If it wasn't for these two-sponsorship in racing wouldn't be what it is today. They changed the world I love so much! Thank you Don and Mr. McEwan!
I just saw this documentary and I resoundingly disagree with the writer's synopsis. The writer's bias is obvious and sadly, he missed the entire point.
His final sentence is critical and telling when he writes, "the religious right is grooming a young generation of virgins to embody an evangelically grounded "Utopia in America." That was NOT the point of the documentary!
Christians, Evangelicals know, beyond a doubt that Utopia could NEVER exist here on earth first of all, because we live in a world where sin exists. And, second, the Wilson family's emphasis is on a loving relationship with God for themselves then, protecting, teaching and mentoring their children on the importance of living a life that is pleasing to God.
To spread the love of God to a world that is exploding with hatred and violence is a very good thing but not, it seems, to the writer of this synopsis.
This movie is from DHX, made by the FiM team. If there's anybody on the face of the planet earth who could made this good, it is them. They've spent the past 65 episodes proving that cartoons intended for girls don't have to suck, so their track record is unimpeachable. However, there is the chance their style could not translate well to the new demographic, but I trust Jayson Thiessen's team to do well here.
Remember the old tv show? Well, this movie finally pays tribute to some of the timeless cliques of the tv show, and does them well. Thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with this movie and loved how it ended with a future and a positive spin. Word of warning, if you have any vertigo problems, hold on tight during the Dubai building scenes. lol
What a fantastic movie! Great story and great cast.
Fantastic, whimsical, dreamlike
Witty, fresh, and well acted---While the story is somewhat predictable, the actors bring real emotion and understanding to their respective roles. I enjoyed the entire story as did my husband. I'd recommend this movie to any age group. We are not teens, but I teach teenagers and found this remarkably believable.
John Cena is getting better at acting. A good dvd to watch for lunch.
This film is not what I expected. I expected to find a left-leaning film critical of Christianity and I found a basically even-handed look into how Americans deal with religion and politics. It is a compassionate look at our strengths and weaknesses.
I must not get it. I thought the movie was ticking along quite nicely until Spock (old Spock) appeared and started messing with the time-space continuum. I was lost for about 15 minutes until he disappeared, and then lost when he reappeared. I think it would have been a really good movie if the director didn't feel the need to please the fans from the past. It could have stood on its own, but sadly, missed the mark in my opinion.
This is the first time in my life that I want to warn people not to go see a movie. This movie sucked. It is a story of a story of a story. There is nothing here. It tries really hard to be of some meaning but has none. It is an insult to series like A Long Way Around and A river Runs Through it to even be mentioned. I wanted to yell at the screen a few times because it was so forced. Here is a thought, tell us where you are, where you are going. Talk about things that happen on the trip and do not force scripted stories. I want my time back, complete waste
Marriage reflects the natural moral and social law evidenced the world over. As the late British social anthropologist Joseph Daniel Unwin noted in his study of world civilizations, any society that devalued the nuclear family soon lost what he called "expansive energy," which might best be summarized as society's will to make things better for the next generation. In fact, no society that has loosened sexual morality outside of man-woman marriage has survived.
Analyzing studies of cultures spanning several thousands of years on several continents, Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin found that virtually all political revolutions that brought about societal collapse were preceded by a sexual revolution in which marriage and family were devalued by the culture’s acceptance of homosexuality.
When marriage loses its unique status, women and children most frequently are the direct victims. Giving same-sex relationships or out-of-wedlock heterosexual couples the same special status and benefits as the marital bond would not be the expansion of a right but the destruction of a principle. . If the one-man/one-woman definition of marriage is broken, there is no logical stopping point for continuing the assault on marriage.
Our "water protectors"? Really? I don't think so. Why don't you call them on that boast and have them produce their records of water they have protected thus far? And how many of the millions of miles of pipelines have they protested at? The alternative to pipelines is trucks and freight trains hauling it overland. Sound logical, safe and or reasonable? One would have to be about 6 years old to buy into their fantastic notion, yet here you are, you write it and it is printed.
For health care funding ask the State of Colorado since it receives a share of funds awarded in the Master Settlement Agreement from the lawsuit against tobacco companies. 1999 through 2016 Colorado received $1,599,012,220.77 total. This was to cover tobacco-related illness costs and education. Guess how much it actually is spent on tobacco related healthcare and education for those years? 23 million dollars and they are cutting that amount yearly. The total amount would cover just about everyone every year for health coverage would it not? But state governments are spending it elsewhere or selling their awards to security traders. This settlement will continue into perpetuity or until tobacco is no longer grown and sold.
Correct my figures if I read them wrong, that kind of money I cannot fathom, I live below poverty level. It is in the interest of the big spenders in every state's capitol to keep cigarettes sales going. They sure are not spending that money on healthcare but it is being spent. (They even charged the tobacco companies under RICO!)
When we hear the phrase "government funded" or "government backed" or "paid to the government" it is actually tax payers dollars. Government does not earn a dime but they can spend them and deny you and I anything they wish. They cannot "create jobs" either but they can eliminate them. It may be a blessing to not have a professional politician in The White House- after all, the Democrats and Republicans have been running the show for years and handpicking who gets to run... Guess what? They have screwed it up beyond belief. This president may have more in common with the common people than you know. (Obama went on and on about "it is time for common-sense laws". If he had a brain he would have realized that he was implying the laws they have been making were then nonsense. Or if his followers had a brain...) (nobody would pass a background check if our metal stability were to be measured as they have in essence driven all of us crazy)
God knows that since FDR the country has been in stranglehold that tightens more and more. Government created agencies that have done nothing but help tighten the noose need to be abolished. Meanwhile the propaganda machine has been fine-tuned and is so well oiled that many would be completely stupefied should they wake up and see the light. Nobody would or could run their own household the way government runs this country.
We live in the land of milk and honey they used to tell us, where we can be anything we desire. But something is terribly wrong in a society that uses "community service" as a punishment and punishes homeless people for begging- all in the name of "public safety". Standing on a median between opposing traffic lanes with painted sign asking for donations (milk and honey) is dangerous (you can't be that) yet standing in the street between two painted on white lines (a cross-walk) is totally safe?!
Land of the Free...
Jenkins and Anschutz own COS - what they want, they get. And the City has Jenkin's back. The article says: "RBD is in a situation where it can benefit the entire community by selling this property to Master Developer." Explain to me how the University Village Colorado shopping center on N. Nevada, across from UCCS property, benefitted the "entire community" and taxpayers when ALL the sales tax collected for 30 years goes to paying down the City's debt incurred to build UVC and NONE of the sales tax goes into the General Fund? The City's involvement in this enterprise was a great deal for the developer, but not for the City. And virtually all of the UVC tenants are national chains, a practice that is not supportive of Colorado businesses, and we can expect a "Master Developer" to bring in more chain restaurants and retail.
But Jenkins/Anschutz also want the appearance of legitimacy, and hence they buy and place their development supporters on the City council. Naysayers to developer's schemes to transfer the risk and costs of development to the taxpayers can expect to be tarred and feathered by editorials in the Anschutz owned Gazette, whose editorial board includes Anschutz's son.
Re the current election, I'm surprised that Gaebler is persona non grata with developers, particularly Nor'Wood/Jenkins, since she is on record saying that the BLR annexation agreement should be revised and taxpayers should bear millions of dollars of the infrastructure costs of Jenkin's BLR development, which is contradictory to the Judge's recent ruling that ALL infrastructure and other development costs were SOLELY the responsibility of the developer. It would be helpful for voters to hear from Gaebler as to how she as a Council member would vote on this issue.
