The BFG - An Unlikely Friendship

The BFG - An Unlikely Friendship

Frobscottle (noun): Giant Country’s green fizzy drink where the bubbles go down instead of up causing giggle-inducing whizzpoppers! In American English, Frobscottle is pop (or soda depending on where you’re from) which causes no-holds-barred flatulence as opposed to burps. Fans of Roald Dahl’s book can even make their own if you look up the recipe online; although I would suspect that non-movie Frobscottle’s bubbles would go up instead of down. Too bad.The BFG, the latest...

The Jungle Book - We're Stronger Together

The Jungle Book - We're Stronger Together

Rudyard Kipling’s timeless story of the boy raised by wolves in the jungle returns to the big screen once again, courtesy of Disney Studios. If you remember the animated 1967 version, I just bet you’re humming the tune for “Bare Necessities” in your head right this minute. This live-action version of the story features only one live person, the man-cub Mowgli (Neel Sethi), although the digital wizardry performed by the filmmakers just might have us believing that the animals are real, too.

The Young Messiah

The Young Messiah

An imaginative portrayal of one year in the life of the Child Jesus. The story begins with Jesus in Egypt being bullied by another boy from the Jewish community, and escalates into some gripping action which it maintains to one degree or another throughout the film. Never boring. Never trite. Faithful to the Scriptures and with sound theology, this film has everything in it but the sensational.
