Great to see an Awesome movie on the big screen!

I have to admit that I had no idea that Sam Worthington has the acting chops that he proved to have in this movie! I found the movie to be uplifting and inspirational and very earthy in dealing with some dark topics. It walked me through a path of forgiveness and grieving and how to get to the other side using my brain in a way that I don't think I processed before. This really is a very entertaining and fun way to show how to get there in a very compassionate way. It's just a really good movie with a lot of really great messages. I'm going to go see it again. I hope everyone sees it at least once

The Best Spiritual Movie I've Ever Seen

If you are spiritual, but not religious, see this movie. If you are religious, see this movie. If you have suffered a great tragedy or loss, and you are in pain, see this movie. If you have tried to make sense of spirituality and religion but could not, see this movie. It is full of wisdom and metaphor and not your standard religious dogma. It's the best spiritual movie I have yet to see.

This movie helped heal my heart

A perfect 10/10. I was thinking how am I going to sell this movie so everyone I know watches it? I don't need to sell it, is the conclusion I came to. I'm going to share a text I sent to some amazing friends who I watched this with! "I love papa! I love talking with Him! I love how he uses things we experience to inspire us! I love how he changes our hearts first and then the grace and power flow. I love how he gets excited when we are excited! And I love how happy he is right now. That the little victories are big victories in the kingdom of God. I just want to share this with everyone lol!" So I will. I love the best friend I have in Jesus. That I can talk to him about anything and he cares. I love what he did for me. I love the Holy Spirit. I love the warmth he brings, the comfort, kindness and power that comes and flows through me. And I love how they are all God. My advice to others is set aside what you think you know for an open mind and a new experience. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth, let her do the thinking and you do the watching and feeling. Just so you know my biases have been set aside for this movie review. I don't like a lick of country music! And Tim McGraw is in this movie! The king of country! The message is so powerful I ignored all my biases and just experienced an amazing movie!

If you loved the book...

If you enjoyed the book--you will love the movie. The movie addresses the ageless philosophical question, "Why does God let bad things happen?" It presents some theology in an unorthodox fashion--but not a heretical one. I found it more inspiring than Narnia--which I dearly love. The film follows the book closely, but not 100%. As a film and story it's not perfect--but it's very close. If you have an open mind, I suggest you see it.

The Shack

The Shack was a triumph. There was not one dull moment to the movie to the shack. If you loved the book then you will love the movie. It is one of those movies where you would wish would never end. This movie has sad moments funny moments and it has a little bit for everyone to enjoy. The shack is a movie that you don't have to be a Christian to enjoy you just have to think the movie looks good have to like the book then go see the movie that everyone will be talking about. It is a brilliant movie and a work of art on the big screen. Parents this is a PG-13 rated movie that has a lot of adult and thematic the AMA, but besides that it is a movie for the whole family will enjoy. This film is one to remember for years and years you will love it
