“The Peanuts Movie” is a rare G-rated movie in theaters for all ages. It honors the 65 years of classic Peanuts comic strips and animated films. It has been updated for the big screen without compromising or distorting the classic stories, characters, and themes. Charlie Brown, as a struggling underdog, teaches all valuable lessons of good character that include virtues such as compassion, perseverance, determination, as well as honesty.
“Woodlawn” (PG) is the amazing true story of the positive, constructive influence of Hank Erwin as a sports chaplain who leads rivaling football teams in racially torn Birmingham, Alabama to reconciliation and redemption that positively affects a community. It has excellent actors, cinematography, and storytelling. It features Sean Astin as Hank Erwin and Jon Voight as Coach Bear Bryant.
“Pan” (PG) is a cinematic spectacle graced by the good acting of Hugh Jackman. It is a heart-warming, redemptive, family movie that provides an origin story for Peter Pan.
“The 33” (PG-13) with the tagline “Hope Runs Deep,” is based on a moving, miraculous true story, when a gold and copper mine collapses, trapping 33 miners underground for 69 days. Featuring Antonio Banderas, it is an inspirational story of courage, resilience and triumphant answers to prayers that have captivated the world’s attention. The reviews on the movie’s IMDb page are worth reading.
