this is me now



we go to movies----a lot----we see a lot of movies----have i mentioned we go to the cinema?

okay---so---we hit a 5:40 showing of "Courageous"
"What?" you say, "i've never heard of that movie----never seen a trailer---was it a foreign film---perhaps an indy?"
here is the trailer:
(copy and paste it)
well----we did see it at our local Cinemark Tinseltown----first run movies-----
no one you know was in it....except Jessa and Joy Duggar! (yes---of the 19 kids and counting duggars!---but you wouldnt have seen them until you read the credits---but its not about the duggar girls).
"What kind of reviews did it get?" (thats you talking again, btw.)
well....there were NO critic reviews on fandango---my go to place for reviews----there were tons of fan reviews---all saying 'MUST GO'---so okay---its not rated R---so we go.  it is by the makers of "Fireproof"---so if you have seen that (and if you havent, you should) then you get the ilk (thats not an anagram---its a word---look it up)
"Why no critic reviews?" (thats you again)---Well---(this is me)---critics tend to hate clean, faith-promoting, family friendly theatah (and yes---if you say it that way it makes more sense)
oh my goodness!
i dont like preachy movies---i always think the writers ran out of cleverity when they start to preach (i think the correct word is cleverness---but cleverity was cleverer).

Courageous didnt preach---IT SCREAMED....but it was sweet and clean and the people looked like real people and yes you kinda knew where it was going but then WHAM-O----or maybe just wham-o----there was a twist....
bring tissues
bring your friends
bring your sons
bring your husbands
its like an LDS General Conference Priesthood session talk---dramatized....and it doesnt just touch the male sector---oh my goodness---you will come home wanting to be a better whateveryouare.

you will come home with your arm raised saying "I WILL".

Dear David, Joe, and Ben. Perhaps we can see it together when we get together for Thanksgiving and then I was thinking we could have PPI's followed by an arm raising "I will" ceremony! Actually let's just watch the show. Maybe you can pick up a new idea to enhance your already outstanding dad skills! I'll need to watch it several times.
