Love It or Leave It: Film Reviews 4

Image
I meant to post this in January but things happened and here we are in February. (Happy Feb. btw) lol Atleast it's up now. Instead of using stars to rate I use ♥ (hearts) meaning I love it and to represent leave it I chose this symbol: ☞ (pointing hand).


MegaMind


I was really apprehensive about this film but after watching it I tell you if you love a good comedy you're going to love this. I was cracking up at almost every scene.




The leading blue man also known as MegaMind leads a life of crime and all around badness. His opponent: Metro Man, The Good Guy, has been his rival since their wee years. As battles ensue the fight between good and evil wages on deeper than expected.
There a lot of funny action movies out but there are few that are able to tell a good story and be unpredictable at the same time. This film is going in for the classics.
I was also surprised at how awesome the graphics were. Not as great as Avatar but you can see DreamWorks' quality of cgi growing exponent…

Redemption, Passion, Glory

A few happy moments but nothing can save you from the emptiness inside.

I tried to drown myself in music, going out, entertaining hobbies but none of the pleasures in life fulfill. The dull ache of loneliness can't be satisfied with people.  Your want for more is never contented. There's a longing deep within your soul and you can't fill it.

After looking for hours on end for something to preoccupy this mind of mine from wandering into the abyss of questions that lead me into that longing, I quit. I gave up trying to fight the battle and just sat on my bed to think and allow my brain to explore the plaguing questions. To every unnerving question the ultimate answer lead to God, my Savior.

I sinned and hadn't asked for forgiveness because I thought I didn't deserve it. Truth is- I don't deserve forgiveness but it's granted to me through Christ. The Holy Spirit tugged at my conscience throughout the day and I kept ignoring Him. He saw the road I was headed an…

Hypocrisy

This is my second time address the topic of hypocrisy this year. I thought I'd share this true story with you all to give a clear picture of what hypocrisy looks like.
2 Samuel Chapter 11: David and Bathsheba 1 In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem. 2 One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, 3 and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” 4 Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. 5 The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.”
6 So David sent this word to Joab: “Send me Uriah t…

GOD is LOVE

This series of blogs to my audience has been a difficult one. There are so many passages in the Bible about love. Even with three long blogs, I still haven't even broken the surface of topic yet. Love is more than feelings and words. Many people (including myself at times) have let the media make them cynical about this day dedicated to love. As much as we hate to admit it we all need love. Valentine's Day, oh how they've mistaken you. 


 GOD Is Love " 7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if…

GOD Is LOVE: Love Over Lust

Image
"6 Place me like a seal over your heart,     like a seal on your arm;  for love is as strong as death,     its jealousy unyielding as the grave.  It burns like blazing fire,     like a mighty flame.  7 Many waters cannot quench love;     rivers cannot sweep it away.  If one were to give     all the wealth of one’s house for love,     it would be utterly scorned." Song of Solomon 8:6-7

She
16 My beloved is mine and I am his;
   he browses among the lilies.
17 Until the day breaks
   and the shadows flee,
turn, my beloved,
   and be like a gazelle
or like a young stag
   on the rugged hills.

Song of Solomon 3

1 All night long on my bed
   I looked for the one my heart loves;
   I looked for him but did not find him.
2 I will get up now and go about the city,
   through its streets and squares;
I will search for the one my heart loves.
   So I looked for him but did not find him.
3 The watchmen found me
   as they made their rounds in the city.
   “Have you seen the one my heart loves?”

GOD Is LOVE: Ruth

I have a Valentines Day story for you. It's one of my favorites. 



Ruth 1 Naomi Loses Her Husband and Sons 1 In the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land. So a man from Bethlehem in Judah, together with his wife and two sons, went to live for a while in the country of Moab. 2 The man’s name was Elimelek, his wife’s name was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Kilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem, Judah. And they went to Moab and lived there.

3 Now Elimelek, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left with her two sons. 4 They married Moabite women, one named Orpah and the other Ruth. After they had lived there about ten years, 5 both Mahlon and Kilion also died, and Naomi was left without her two sons and her husband.



Naomi and Ruth Return to Bethlehem
6 When Naomi heard in Moab that the LORD had come to the aid of his people by providing food for them, she and her daughters-in-law prepared to return home from there. 7 With her two daughters-in-l…
