Crop And Save
The Bible (2013)
Great, only wish they would have done more
Being about the Bible, I don't want to spoil the end. (Joke.) But, I must say this was very well done aside from a few inaccuracies. This is to be expected seeing as it is a mini-series rather than a gigantic series.
Now, the only complaint I would have is the actual crucification of Jesus. Many believe it was a cross (though it was a stake if you do the research into it) and since it is a minor matter and to be expected that should be no matter here. But, the nail in the hand instead of wrist is still happening even knowing the truth behind it.
Aside from that little fact, the show was great. I do hope it opens up people to reading the Bible and to their God. The show portrayed things in a very good way, aside from a few things with Jesus and after Jesus.
If you have not read the Bible read Luke then read Acts. Though, you can always start with this show for a start. I do recommend it as a start before reading or to those who know the Bible.
I will say, as a Jehovah's Witness I really expected to be even more disappointed with the portrayal of Jesus, I didn't expect God's name to be used since it may offend some or confuse even more but a few lines not from the Bible got me but that in itself did is not a problem, only implying Jesus as God without Biblical support. But, overall, I liked it.
Best musical ever
I, personally have not seen a better musical. First time I watched this movie I did not expect a musical but a horror. I was dragged into the movie quickly with the mystery of what happened to Barker. By the the halfway point of the movie I was very pleased.
The movie is not as violent or gory as some make it out to be, but if you thought Lord of the Rings (my other favorite movie) was too violent then this movie surly would be. The gore is done more in an artistic way, showing Todd's mood. Without giving anything away, I must say it has to be seen rather than read about.
Assuming the reader is either seeing what others think of the movie after watching the movie or seeing what others think of the movie before watching, the latter should forget that it is a musical before they watch it. Nobody likes musicals that I know of but all who have seen this movie that I know love this movie.
The romance, the despair, the anger, how every second of the movie achieves more than one emotion; and not to mention the music is unlike the typical musical. This is a must see. If you scare easy this isn't horror, but if homicidal maniacs are your fear best avoid, but the character is actually a character you can connect to.
3000 Miles to Graceland (2001)
Good movie but could be better
This is one of those good average movies. I love a good action movie and this has it, yet the sex and bad language was unneeded. But, as is the case, this is what the people want.
The movie does do well in showing the terribleness of guns while still having good action scenes. The violence is not unlike that of more historical movies like 300 or worse. The violence is artistic, (if violence can ever be called that,) but it is violent. More or less, the bad content goes down to sex and language, take that out you have a violent action movie few would complain about.
The movie has a good story involving a young boy, named after Jesse James the war hero turned criminal. The kid in the beginning is fascinated with gangsters which is a good theme for teens.
Overall I must say it is a good movie for action fans who can handle the content, but these are things so abundant in our culture that people may fail to see the problem. If you, like I, don't like bad language there is better movies. If violence is what you don't like, there are good dramas and comedy's without it. Don't like sex in movies, as I feel the same with, let me know of good movies without it. But, it can be said that there are worse movies when it comes to content.
