From director Steve Taylor, "The Second Chance" effectively displays the tensions between different parts of the body of Christ. What the film lacks in cinematic style, it makes up for in earnestness. Although, at times, the film is a little too earnest for its own good.

All I can say is "I love this movie!" It has everything you could want: a heartwarming story about men mentoring a boy, adventure with a lion, a gang of hoodlums, intense “Indiana Jones” kind of action and a renewed hope for life when there seems to be none.

The Secret Things of God is an inspired approach to evangelism, and it works extremely well. This DVD could serve as a great focal point for church outreach events. It is also the perfect discussion tool for friends who’ve become entranced by The Secret.

Johnny Depp's performance in "Secret Window," like everything else he does, is positively inspired. In many ways, the requirements of this film remind me of Tom Hanks' performance in "Cast Away," with so much of the film's success hinging on one actor’s ability to credibly carry the story.

Based on the novel by Susan Cooper, The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising is the first film adaptation of the author's five-book series. Apparently the filmmakers have softened the overtly magical elements of the books and instead emphasize bravery, faith, discernment and unity.

A Serious Man is one of the Coen brothers' finest efforts outside No Country for Old Men, explicitly addressing comparable religious questions and issues but adding a serious dose of their trademark humor. The story keeps viewers chuckling until the film's sudden, ominous conclusion.
