Long, long ago, the movie "Back to the Future II" showed us what the world would look like in the year 2015.
Part of that future included the release of the blockbuster hit "Jaws 19," a holofilm whose 3D advertisement frightened main character Marty McFly.
Now here we are, and as expected, a trailer for the 19th installment of the Jaws franchise is here. more >>
It has been 11 years since "The Incredibles" was shown and just recently, fans of the superhero family were excited to hear that a sequel is in the works, with Brad Bird directly involved in its making. In an interview with IGN, Bird made some interesting revelations about the direction that the sequel will take.
In the interview, he cited that he needed to find middle ground in terms of developing a sequel. He originally intended the first movie to be just the one movie, but with the current trend of following up old movies with sequels, it took him some time to figure out what the sequel's central theme will be.
He offered this hint about this new direction: "the powers themselves are not that interesting, it's the people that are interesting and how they react to having those powers... I'm basically sticking with the approach that I had on the movie we did, which is that it's really about the characters than it is about bursting through walls or something like that." more >>

Famed radio host, Janet Parshall, aired a program in 2013 about new movie sensations that are depicting ungodly themes, such as Twilight and others. Her guest made the point that the church is losing the power of discernment. I couldn't agree more.
Before sending this article to print, I asked my mother for feedback and perspective from an earlier generation. She said, "The older generation has seen the slow digression from standards of excellence in movie making to movies that distort and destroy, and are far removed from themes of integrity. Fifty years ago these types of programs were recognized as wrong. Although we might watch them, few, if any, would dare justify them."
