Movie Review – Rust

James was a pastor and he came to a place where God was silent and he couldn’t accept that, so he walked away from his faith for a time.

He returns to his home town and discovers that a family new to the area had been killed in a fire. Travis, a friend, from his childhood was accused of setting the fire and James knows that he is innocent and sets out to prove it.

His home town has changed and he needs to unravel the truth that will set the town and himself free.  While James works diligently to to find the truth, he eventually finds his way back to his relationship with God.

This movie was slow to start, but overall it was a good movie that my husband and I really enjoyed. We thought it was well done. We do not recommended it for young children or even preteens due to some of the more mature content.

If you want to learn more about this movie, you can check out the website or their facebook page.

The Way Home

Randy is supposed to be helping his family get ready to go on a camping trip. Christal thought he was packing the van, but he ducked inside their home to check his work email. It was during this very short time that their 2 year old son Joe disappeared from their driveway.

Christal and Randy check the neighbourhood and Grandma calls her church prayer chain and practically everyone she knows. People from the neighbourhood start pouring in to help search for little 2 year old Joe.

The family lives in a forested area with many areas for him to be hiding and many dangerous areas where he could have gotten hurt. I am not going to spoil the ending, but I will tell you that Randy comes out a changed man.

This movie, which is based on a true story, is every mother’s worst nightmare played out. It is a real tear jerker so have your tissues handy. The movie was really good and reminded my husband and I to consider again the things that are really important to us. We highly recommend this movie.

Upside

Solomon plays lacrosse and during a game he is injured. His sight gets reversed and he ends up seeing the world upside down. He meets Wren who was born blind and she helps him see his unique perspective on life in a positive way.

Upside is an interesting movie that really shows the idea that faith requires more than just what you see. My husband and I both enjoyed watching this nice romantic movie and we felt that it was well done. This movie gave us an insight into what life is like when you have a disability.

There were a few things that we did not like about this movie:

  • We didn’t like the college scene where there was drinking.
  • We didn’t like the fact that Wren dated Solomon before he was a Christian.
  • We also feel that this movie is not suitable for young children (we did not allow any of our children to watch this movie and they are all under 10).
