Captive DVD Giveaway

As some of you may remember, I did a review awhile ago on a book I received called Captive. You can check that one out HERE if you’ve forgotten.

Ashley Smith, a recovering drug-addict (who is barely clinging to the wagon) is abducted outside her home and held hostage by Brian Nichols.

In the movie, as with all films based on a book, there are some details missing. One early example is that in the book she goes to the store to get cigarettes, but in the movie she just gets a package from her car. While some things were changed or omitted, I did feel that the movie was fairly true to the novel.

I did not personally find this movie to be very fast paced, and I would not call this a movie theater film, I do feel its a good rental type movie, or one to own in your collection. Knowing that this is all based on a true story makes this so much more real for me.

Feel free to check out the OFFICIAL WEBSITE, in addition to checking them out on FACEBOOK and/or TWITTER.

Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9

Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 is a puppet movie from VeggieTales creator PHIL VISCHER! Kids will enjoy Buck Denver’s latest adventure with his friends from What’s In the Bible? There are also many humorous nods to Star Wars and Star Trek. More importantly, Phil Vischer’s gifted teaching delivers a clear message, communicating important Biblical truths that adds to ones faith foundation.

About the movie:
Buck Denver has a simple dream – to save the galaxy. Working for the Galactic Mission Board, Buck dreams of carrying God’s love to every corner of the Milky Way! There are a few things stopping him….. he doesn’t have a starship. Or a crew. Or even a captain’s license. (Just a few minor set-backs really…..). Against all odds, he get the chance to go on a real mission into deep space, but things don’t go at ALL like he imagined! If he’s doing what God wants him to do, why is everything going wrong?

Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 is a wild, galactic adventure that teaches kids a powerful lesson about trusting God with everything – even our dreams!

I was sent an advanced screening of this movie, and thought the movie was well polished. It delivers an important message to kids. God does not want you to do “big things”, God just wants you.

“The fruit of the Spirit doesn’t come from working for God, it comes from walking with God.”
