It’s a double feature during our movie review this week. First up is “Gravity” (PG-13) starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. It follows two astronauts as they try to find a way to safely get back to earthy after parts of a broken satellite collide with and destroy their space station.
Bob says this one can be pretty intense, but there is some positive spiritual content as Bullock’s character coming to a realization of a possible creator of the universe. It’s a story of survival, and there is some language, so it got 3 1/2 stars for family friendliness. You can check out the full review here and listen below.
“Grace Unplugged” (PG) is also out this weekend, and it follows the story of a young woman named Grace. Her dad was a one-time musician who fell into the dark side of that life, had a change of heart, came to know God, and left the music business to lead worship at a church. As an 18-year-old, she has issues with her dad, and leaves home to pursue a life in the music business for herself with her dad’s former agent.
Bob says this film has some great family elements and would connect with any parent who’s struggled with whether or not they did or said the right thing when it comes to setting down the rules with their teens. Especially for families with a faith background, Bob says he can’t help but recommend this one. You can read their complete review here and listen to the review below.
