Movie Review 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

Movie Review 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

From director Michael Bay, 13 HOURS is the gripping true story of six elite ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA who fought back against overwhelming odds when terrorists attacked a U.S. diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012.
Starring: James Badge Dale, John Krasinski, Max Martini
Runtime: 2 hours, 24 minutes 
13 Hours does a phenomenal job of recounting the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. Regardless of the politics surrounding the Benghazi attacks, the film does an excellent job of examining the events that led up to the attack, as well as showcasing the heroism of the men that fought to defend American citizens. It gives a moving glimpse into the experiences of U.S. military personnel and the realities of combat.

I was worried that the film would be diluted by political commentary, but it isn't. The politics surrounding the event are touched on briefly, but are by no means a prominent theme in the film. It keeps the focus on the men that fought bravely to defend the U.S. compounds and save lives. Wonderful film.
Fantastic movie. I can stream this free thanks to Prime, but I'm picking up the blu-ray cause I like voting with my wallet. And this movie deserves all the positive votes it can receive.

Many would classify me as a hardcore conservative. Maybe I am. I believe in the Bible front-to-back, God first, family second, country third. I support our troops. Doesn't mean I condone every military action our nation is involved in, but the men and women on the front line- I support them. I want them all to accomplish their mission and then return home safe and sound.

This is a movie about those men. It shows their sacrifice, their courage, even their weakness (soldiers get scared too).

Love this movie. I don't consider it biased in anyway. Be that pro-conservative, anti-us-military, etc. It's a movie that focuses on the soldiers, tells their story. That's it. No political BS thrown in.

So freaking awesome. Watch this movie. It is amazing.

Movie Review - The Choice
The Choice
From Nicholas Sparks, the best-selling author of The Notebook and Safe Haven, comes this heart-lifting romance about how far we go to keep the hope of love alive.
Starring: Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer, Maggie Grace
Runtime: 1 hour, 51 minutes 
This movie will be one of my proverbial comfort foods. Though it has been critically panned by a lot of critics, the ONLY critic whose review matters, is mine. I love this movie. You have to suspend your disbelief in some spots, particularly when it comes to the aging (or lack thereof) of the characters and *SPOILER ALERT* the medical improbability that anyone in a coma can look stunning or much less walk out of the hospital without muscle atrophy. Putting those hiccups aside, the movie had me in tears in a very good, cathartic way. I love it!
I found myself pulled into this sweet, yet cheesy, love story. I didn't anticipate that. Perhaps it was the setting of the waterfront 1940s cottages and moss-covered trees that evoked feelings of another time. Maybe it was because of the unexpected and deep love these two expressed for each other that I've always wanted, but never really felt I had. It is a story, yes, but it was beautiful in a strange way.

Movie Review Me Before You

Movie Review - Me Before You
Me Before You
Film was brilliantly made and held my attention throughout. I loved it until then end. Terrible and tragic ending. This movie left me angry and heartbroken! To avoid spoilers read no further.
My aunt who is paralyzed from the neck down is the strongest and most inspiring woman I have ever met. If she would have taken control into her own hands and ended her life, so many people would have missed out on the blessing it is just to know her. So many people have been impacted by her, and brought to Jesus because of it. She is not holding anyone back. 

For this movie to imply that those with disables do so is utterly disgusting. I am angered to even have spent the time watching it. It could have ended beautifully, with Tim choosing to live out the remainder of his life as God intended, doing the most he could with what he was given, impacting others, and sharing his life with Lou. He could have went along side her through her journey. What an amazing love story that would be about sacrificial love. Instead, it ended with him selfishly taking matters into his own hands and taking the easy way out. 

I know it's just a movie but this just made me realize how devastating our world is becoming, that somebody would think this is an epic romance.

Great acting. But sad ending. This film gives the message that disabled people are useless and are better off dead, and it isn't our place to discourage them from that. I think disabled people have a lot to live for. This film did a great job of glorifying assisted suicide, and a terrible job of giving hope to people who are disabled.
