WAR ROOM | Monday Movie Review

This image from WAR ROOM shows Karen Abercrombia as Miss Clara and Priscilla Shirer as Elizabeth.

It’s not that War Room is too unrealistic – a common complaint about movies of similar stock – for prayer is immensely powerful, and we all know someone as eccentrically and selflessly devout as Miss Clara (more on her later) and someone else (like ourselves) as broken and in need of repair … Continue reading

INTO THE STORM | Monday Movie Review

This is an image from the film INTO THE STORM that features a fire tornado in front of a church.

I didn’t know much about Into The Storm at first. In fact, I hadn’t heard anything about it at all until I saw a trailer for it when I went to go see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. And even then, I was divided in my preconception of it. … Continue reading
