Caged No More DVD Review (sensitive content)

 
Caged No More is the story of one woman's fight to find her adopted granddaughters who were sold into slavery by their father.  Aggie is desperate to find her granddaughters who seem to have disappeared.  She goes undercover and finds an ally to help her in her quest from the wealthiest family in New Orleans who is also related to the father of the girls.  She discovers that the girls are being "sold" thinking they are performing in a beauty pageant.  There is danger everywhere and the girls are rescued in a dramatic emancipation. 
 
This film exposes the horrors and dangers of the underground sex trafficking industry that is taking over in every country, even the United States.  There is a great need to keep girls and boys from being taken and exploited.  This film shows the way people risk their lives for these girls.  It is daring and courageous work.  This is a real fight we need to fight. 
 
The reality of this is very scary for me to think about.  I hope this film helps others find a way to help and create more rescues for these women and also men who are being strangled by this horrible industry.  There is hope and help!

When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Hero DVD Review (Season 3, Movie 3)


When Calls The Heart: Heart Of A Hero 



When Calls the Heart: Heart of a Hero is the next movie in Season 3.  Pastor Frank is back in his position, but he can't seem to encourage a trusting relationship with Abigail and the Garrison Gang still is trying to get Frank to join back with them.  Lee injures his foot and Faith Carter, a nurse from Hamilton, arrives to care for him.  Elizabeth is jealous of Faith and Jack's friendship and makes it clear to Jack that she is not happy.  And Mayor Gowen continues to make life hard for the new settlers when he raises the rent.  A new girl comes to town and is not interested in making friends at school.  Elizabeth gets advice from Rosemary about how to promote kindness in her classroom.  Bill Avery makes Dottie Ramsey a birthday dinner and Jesse is still trying to win Clara's heart even if he used to run with a dangerous gang of outlaws.  Relationships in Hope Valley are soaring high and low and there is still some mysterious things happening at the mill.  Faith Carter is torn between becoming a wife and running an infirmary in Hope Valley.  She makes a decision that will affect her life in Hope Valley and her friendship with Jack.  Will Elizabeth be able to make peace in her classroom and in her heart with her feelings for Jack?
 
This episode had so many great moments.  I did enjoy Faith Carter in Season 2 when she met Jack while caring for his brother.  She is sweet girl and she has a heart of gold.  I was sad that she had to choose between her fiancĂ© and her work.  And Abigail has some sweet moments with Cody who she "adopted."  He is upset that some of the kids keep telling him that she is not his mother.  She says to him, "I need you just as much as you need me." I'll be interested to see how all these couple relationships grow.  Hope Valley has such a rich group of people and stories.  I look forward to more adventures and intrigues from Hope Valley.

The Memory Book DVD Review




Buy Christian Movies on FishFlix.com | Memory Book DVD


Chloe Davenport is a photographer and innocently picks up a Memory Book at a Swap Meet.  She thumbs through the book and decides to buy it.  She takes it home and begins to try to unravel the mystery of the couple in the pictures. They seemed so in love and kept special memories of their times together.   She meets Gabe who is a willing friend who likes adventure and decides to help Chloe track down this mysterious couple.  They go all over San Francisco to places from the pictures.  They also meet a lot of special people along the way that give them moments to enjoy with them and with each other.  Gabe begins to fall for Chloe who is still unsure about love.  Then they finally meet the mysterious couple, Sarah and Jonathan.  Their story of a wedding that never happened gave Chloe an idea.  Will Chloe open her heart to Gabe and will this couple make love come true even after all these years?





Check out The Memory Book DVD from FishFlix online.  This sweet Hallmark movie is sure to tug some heart strings.  I really enjoyed the special moments and fun adventures that Chloe and Gabe experienced.  They really connected in making a mystery come alive.  I really enjoyed the ending and I love the idea of creating my own Memory Book.  This movie was romantic, adventurous with some laughs and also a few heartaches.  It's one to please any romantic soul.

When Calls the Heart: Troubled Hearts (Season 3, Movie 2) DVD Review

 
 
 When Calls the Heart Season 3 is full of more than enough surprises.  Elizabeth wants to move into her own house, but Jack is starting to get serious about her because he has been planning on building a house for both of them.  Rosemary sticks her nose in Lee's business and finds out that he is taking out a loan on his business.  She begins to "help" him scrimp on every little convenience- no heat (wear a coat), and only allowing him one pencil.  And then there's Jesse, who has come into town looking for Pastor Frank Hogan (aka Matt Landry).  When Abigail sees his picture on a Wanted poster she tries to understand who Pastor Frank really is.  Will Jack make advances in his relationship to Elizabeth, is Lee really in financial difficulty and who is Pastor Frank and why does Jesse keep threatening him?  Find out in When Calls the Heart: Troubled Hearts in Season 3.
 
I really like the characters in this show.  They live simple lives, and they truly love to help and protect each other.  This episode featured some funny moments as well as some tense moments.  And as always I am anxious to see the development of Jack and Elizabeth's relationship.  She is so independent and I think Jack needs to make a move soon.  If you enjoy When Calls the Heart, this is another episode not to miss.

Chasing Grace DVD Review and Giveaway

Chasing Grace (DVD)
 
A family tragedy.  A little girl gone.  Two brothers ripped apart.  Grace and forgiveness buried.  Or not? 

Pastor Jonathan Matheson is leading a large church and his brother continues to need to have someone bail him out of jail.  On the day of his daughter's birthday, he brings his brother home and a tragedy occurs.  The family is torn apart not only by the death of the precious daughter, but by the bitterness between the brothers.  They both harbor secrets and lies and betrayal.  Jonathan's wife is thrown in the midst of a storm not only with her husband, but also with her son.  Instead of grace, there is guilt all around.  It's not until the secrets are revealed and repented that grace begins to transform the family. 


This was a heartbreaking film at the outset. And it seemed like every situation was worse than the first.  It was also interesting to see how the brothers, one a pastor and the other a drunk,  both fit into the same mold of being fools.  However, as time went on I saw how each had to come to a place of brokenness and eventually seeking forgiveness and restoration.   The outcome of redemption is so positive and uplifting.   I thought this movie had a powerful message and it really showed how the sin nature of man can be so prevalent even in someone who follows God.  No one is immune to the workings of Satan.   This movie was loosely based on true events. 

This movie has death, grief and alcoholism.  I would recommend it for teens and above.
