Movie Reviews

I recently saw two movies that I thought were worthy of posting about. The first is the documentary Jesus Camp. It recently aired on A&E so some of you might have caught it, if not I strongly suggest renting it. I think it should cause everyone to pause for a moment and reflect on the ways in which we teach our children religion. I believe religion should be something that creates happiness and peace instead of fear and I think that unfortunately most religions use fear, especially when dealing with children.

On a much lighter note I also went and saw P.S. I Love You. One of the best movies I have ever seen, everyone has to see this movie. My one suggestion is that you actually wait until it is on video because you will literally cry out loud, and I don't know about you but I prefer to do that in the privacy of my own home. If you do choose to see it in the theater take a box of tissue and a large group so you feel like you are only around people you know.

Thanks for the heads' up about P.S. I Love You. I should've brought more kleenex...Mike and I went to see it, and thankfully as I cried, the young woman next to me was weeping (as quietly as possible, of course) right along with me. What a touching, heart-wrenching, funny movie!
