The Big Short

THE BIG SHORT is a film that answers several questions about the financial crisis that took place during 2007-2010.  The director and cast are believable and do a fantastic job of showing various aspects of the problem.  The presentation is unique: the story is a drama with some quirky comedy included.

The crisis was incredibly unfortunate and affected so many hard-working people. Individuals were laid off jobs, lost retirement savings, and abandoned homes they could no longer afford. Greed caused the situation and THE BIG SHORT makes that clear.

THE BIG SHORT is based on the book of the same title written by Michael Lewis.  The movie is playing in theatres, winning awards, and receiving numerous nominations for more awards. To learn more about the film visit http://www.thebigshortmovie.com/.

War Room

This week I had the pleasure of attending a preview screening for the movie WAR ROOM.  The film is produced by Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick.  The Kendrick brothers are the creators of FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and FACING THE GIANTS.

Usually people see prayer as a last resort, but WAR ROOM shows how having prayer as a daily part of one’s life can make a difference.  Relationships with others can be more positive and one can be at peace. In the movie a couple’s marriage relationship is strained.  Elizabeth, a real estate agent, meets a new client, Miss Clara, who shows her how a “war room” and battle plan for prayer can help her family.

WAR ROOM is an entertaining and inspirational film. To learn more visit the official Web site at http://www.WarRoomTheMovie.com.  The film will be in theatres on August 28th.
