I recently watched Spider-Man: Homecoming with my daughter. Out of all the Spider-Man movies I’ve seen, this one is my favorite.
Now that Spider-Man is in the MCU, I’ll have to add this to my MCU rankings.
Hidden Figures portrays the lives of three “human computers” during the “space race” between the United States and Soviet Union. This powerful story based on true events is a wonderful viewing experience for the whole family.
Hidden Figures follows three African-American women who were “human computers” for NASA at the start of the space race between the United States and Soviet Union. Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer), Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), and Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson) must overcome institutional segregation and racism while providing vital mathematical data for NASA’s space program.
Runtime: 2h 7min
When the trailer for Hidden Figures first hit the Internet last year this was a film I knew I had to see. My interest in NASA combined with a cast of extremely talented actors and actresses made this film a “must-see”.
I was immediately drawn to the characters in the second scene of the movie. Here are three African-American women stuck on the side of the road when a white police officer shows up. The scene demonstrates the ingenuity these women must have needed to survive in a white, male-dominated environment.
All of the actors put in grade A performances and the soundtrack is upbeat and pairs with the movie well. Some of the scenes include some stock footage from NASA that wasn’t cleaned up very much and there’s one scene where a CG rocket is on the screen and it’s obviously a CG rocket.
One of the things that really stood out to me was how the civil rights movement was portrayed. Instead of showing the violence, the filmmakers chose to show peaceful protest indicative of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision. It was a refreshing and powerful. I won’t deny that tears fell from my eyes more than once.
If you’re looking for a film you can show your whole family that portrays positive female role models watch Hidden Figures today! Don’t miss this one!
The Redemption of Henry Myers is sure to please Christians who are fans of westerns and redemptive stories.
When I’d first heard about the release of The Redemption of Henry Myers in 2014 and watched the trailer I was disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to watch it on TV. I don’t have cable so I had to wait for it to be released on DVD or streaming. It was worth the wait.
Directed by Clayton Miller and written by Chris Vander Kaay, this western is sure to please even the most cynical critics of Christian film.
Note: This review was originally written in 2014 for and old blog. I have re-purposed it for this blog. Continue reading “The Redemption of Henry Myers Movie Review”

Is Genesis History? asks more than a simple question. It asks the viewer to consider competing paradigms: deep time vs. rapid change, evolution vs. Genesis. The movie is more likely to support a Christian’s existing belief in a literal six-day creation rather than convince someone that the Biblical account of creation is historical.
Throughout the film Del Tackett interviews scientists who explain why the Genesis account of creation is an historical event and not a poetic or mythical interpretation of cosmic origins. Continue reading “Is Genesis History? Movie Review”
