To Save a Life (2009)




6/10



Starring
Randy Wayne
Deja Kreutzberg
Joshua Wiegel

Directed by Brian Baugh



To save a life is a Christian film that I very much appreciated, the thing I really liked about this film is the focus which was evangelizing and making people feel welcome rather than judging them and turning them out into the street.

To save a life did a good job in the passing of its message, at the end of the film I myself started to think it through about the times I have made others feel unwelcomed, it made me rethink about the ministering that we get now a days, which are more focused on gain and personal triumph when they should be focused on loving our neighbor as ourselves, that is one reason I will rate this Christian movie high, it made me think about others.
When asked what the top commandments were Christ replied in Mark 12:30 - 31 "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."
This movie preached both.

The movie is about Jake Taylor (Randy Wayne) who has everything going for him, a beautiful girl, a basketball champion and everyone loves him. Then, an old childhood friend, whom Jake used to be friends with, commits suicide.
Jake starts to wonder what he could've done to save his friend's life. He runs into a youth minister who tells him that he needs God.
While Jake struggles with the opinion and trying out the Christian life things start to change in his life but not for good, and it made Jake think of what to do, either what is best for him or for others.

The movie production is well done, although it is a low budget film and you will notice some mediocre acting here and there the movie is pleasant, and the producers did a good job in making the movie look more like an A-class movie, the main actor Randy Wayne was excellent in front of the camera and he very well represented and presented the film in a light I feel some will not be able to, and the best part is he offered to do the film for free.

After watching this Christian film my thought pattern changed and I felt like there is more I can do in the Christian race to make life better for others out there other than just living for myself alone.
Many Christian movies move you, others just feel like a waste of your time, it is only few that inspire you to act and this is one of the few.
I advise you get for yourself this DVD.

The Number Station (2013)



4/10



Starring
John Cusack
Malin Akerman

Number Station is filled with some very high level performances from John Cusack and Malin Akerman, and the movie made good use of its environment as we get to see some fun shoot-outs in enclosed areas and the most of the time we are watching two cast John Cusack and Malin Akerman but they found a way to keep you attracted and awake, as you eagerly wait for the movie to end.

Number Station is a British-America thriller without intensive car chasing or a bunch of men slugging it out, just a guy allowing his critical thinking get the best of him and a lady who choose the wrong career.

The Number Station is about a disgraced CIA black ops agent Emerson Kent (John Cusack) who was re-assigned to protect a code operator (Malin Åkerman) at a secret American numbers station, after Emerson failed to kill a witness after he carried out an operation.

Before they resumed for their shift in the station they found out that the station had been compromised and the people that were in the shift before them were killed and 15 numbers has been sent out to other black ops to take care of.

Emerson and his code operator stumble on some recordings that so happened to be captured when the number station was attacked, the recordings helped them to understand the things that went down in the number station, but they are still trapped in it and unauthorized codes have been sent out, they have to find a way to cancel the codes and get out alive.

I won’t rate number station high as the movie’s plot is dry and it was difficult liking it, although the leads were top notch, the screenplay was not. The movie does boast of some fun cinematography and the directing is good enough to be mentioned.

After the over 100 minutes of screen time I can boldly say this is not a movie for the cinemas neither is it one I will like to look back and I say I have seen this as the movie was not worth the time I put into it.
I have to say that it is hard and nearly difficult that John Cusack will be the best thing that a movie has to offer, but here he so happens to be, his acting was well done, his mannerism was also well fitted and I have to say he did a good job.

The Number Station is not a must see, if you have not seen it yet be grateful.

Superman Unbound (2013)



4/10



Starring the voice of
Matt Bomer
John Nobel
Stana Katic

Directed by James Tucker


Superman Unbound was no better than any other 20 minute long toon that we are used too, why DC decided to go ahead with this movie beats me, and why some people cheer and say it is good also goes over my head.
The first thing is the story, now Brainiac is a computer program that devourers worlds of their knowledge and technology, he then stores some part of the world as specimens and destroys the planet itself.
Of all the story arcs to develop into a movie, DC picked this one.

There is no biff, but this is not one of my favorite of the Superman stories, this animation is based on the "Brainiac" five-issue comic book story arc written by Geoff Johns, which saw the death of Jonathan Kent and Clark taking on an old nemesis Braniac with the help of Supergirl.
Now, this movie didn’t have the death of Jonathan Kent but it was like taking a dull story and blowing it up on the TV screen.

The animation was not half bad, the lines were just ok, but while watching I don’t see any reason why DC decided to aim for a matured audience this movie will have passed for a less matured audience but with Lois giving Braniac the finger, it was totally uncalled for.

There is nothing in this animation that thrilled me as the story is near similar to that of the comic, which will be a plus to some people but not to me.
The story features our hero Superman and his cousin Supergirl, Supergirl is acting up dealing with the whole crisis of losing Krypton as she just woke up it seemed like something that happened last year.

A probe was sent to earth to scan its life forms, the probe ran into Superman and he put it out of service, he took it to his North Pole layer and there Supergirl saw the probe and immediately remembered seeing such in Krypton before Kandor (Krypton’s capital) vanished.

Superman decided to go scan outside the earth to and there he located Braniac’s ship.

From there on, it was a battle of survival, who will win the machine Braniac who has the information of thousands of worlds or a single Krptonian, whose love for earth supersedes that of any other creature.

My final take is, DC better sit up, Batman is all they have going for them in the live action world and in the animation world.
I just hope the much hyped Superman film (Man of Steel) will live up to expectations.
