The Woodcarver Movie Theme

Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood-carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed.

Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church’s beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.

The Woodcarver Review

This is an awesome movie and a great family story. John Ratzenberger is terrific as a wood carver named Ernest Otto who misses his wife, who recently died from cancer. However, he finds a young man to help mold and guide, Matthew Stevenson (Dakota Daulby).

Matt’s father and mother are divorcing and they become angry with each other every time they see each other. Matt’s father, Jack, takes his stress out on Matt by constantly getting on his case. His mother Rita cannot control her temper when she gets around Jack. Matt gets into trouble at the beginning of the movie, vandalizing a church, but he likes Mr. Otto and as he works with him, Mr. Otto gets him to open up about how his parent’s relationship changed when his dad stopped attending church, and how their divorce is tearing Matt up. However, when Mr. Otto gets Matt to think in terms of “What would Jesus do?” his life begins to change in amazing ways.

The Woodcarver is an incredible movie, filled with wonderful themes of faith and forgiveness and it promotes the idea that change is possible when people simply follow God. Don’t miss this one!

The Mighty Macs – Movie Review

Director: Tim Chambers
Story, Screenplay: Tim Chambers
Stars: Carla Gugino, David Boreanaz and Lauren Bittner

The Mighty Macs Movie Theme

The Mighty Macs is based on the incredible true story of the 1971-72 Immaculata College team that started in obscurity but became the original Cinderella story in women’s basketball. This team of pioneers went from barely making that inaugural tournament to the first dynasty in their game. And Cathy Rush (Carla Gugino, the woman who was ahead of her time, became immortalized when she was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

It’s 1971. Cathy Rush is a woman ahead of her time, and she’s about to embark on an adventure for the ages. A new era is dawning in the country and in collegiate athletics, where a national champion will be crowned for the first time in women’s basketball. In the lead up to this historical season, major universities are preparing their game plans to win that first title. Meanwhile a tiny all-women’s Catholic college in Philadelphia has a more modest goal: find a coach before the season begins. Providentially, Cathy Rush is about to find Immaculata College. Recently married, Cathy is dealing with the aftermath of a truncated playing career. While cultural norms would have her staying at home, she’s willing to do the hard work necessary to help her new team reach their goals-or perhaps she’s just trying to achieve her unfulfilled dreams through them.

Directed by newcomer Tim Chambers, “The Mighty Macs” is a feel-good movie offering lessons in friendship, teamwork, trust and perseverance. For the most part, Catholicism is treated with respect, but it serves more as a colorful backdrop than a source for commentary.

It is  a very good family movie. Go and watch The Mighty Macs in action.

The Grace Card – Movie Review

The Grace Card - Movie Review

The Grace Card — movie released on 2-25-11

Witness The Power of Forgiveness

Director David Evans’ warm-hearted, unobjectionable message movie celebrates the transformative power of Gospel values. Starring Oscar winner Louis Gossett, Jr., and newcomers Michael Joiner and Michael Higgenbottom, The Grace Card is played well.

The Grace Card Movie Theme

Mac McDonald is a miserable person. 17 years ago, his young son was hit and killed by a car. Today, his anger is still impacting both his family life and his job as a cop. His surviving son Blake is hanging out with a bad crowd and flunking out of school. His wife is seeking counseling to cope with their unhappy life. His supervisor at the police dept. is also concerned about his attitude and assigns him a partner, which Mac is not happy about.

His new partner is Sam Wright, who is a part-time pastor who would like it to be full-time. He is a cop in order to provide for his family.

It was actually disturbing to see how Mac impacts those around him: his wife, his son and his partner. Both Mac and Sam are missing something in their life; Mac has shut God out of his life for a long time, and Sam begins to doubt his calling as a pastor.

Sam relies on his faith, and guidance from his grandfather George (Louis Gossett Jr.), but it takes a tragic incident to provide the impetus for change that Mac needs in his life.

I’ve reviewed quite a few movies that emphasize forgiveness, but The Grace Card brought it to a whole new level. The ending is especially emotional, and unexpected. A must see movie for all. Watch it.
