fireproof.


i [finally] went to see this movie last night. and while i wouldn't typically post something as generic as a movie plug, this is simply one of the best films i have ever seen. even more so when you consider the shoestring budget and volunteer cast/crew (with the exception of kirk cameron - who has come a long, long way since the days of growing pains). this is so much more than a movie about marriage. every man and woman should see this movie, regardless of circumstance or marital status. end of story.

oh. and yes, this is - indeed - what my friend paige refers to as a "God movie". the irony of her humor is the truth that it really is just that. the implications and message of this film transcend any stereotypical genre and stereotypical audience. as a whole, it epitomizes the gospel.

me loves! so GO SEE IT before it's theater run is over!

  1. Nadine,
    Sue and Harold went a few weeks back, and she has been raving about it ever since. I guess Shawn and I will have to go and see it.

  2. God's timing is a scary thing sometimes. I bought "The Love Dare" a while back but finally sat down with it last night and decided to start it today. I guess you reaffirmed that the time is indeed right! (I'm praying as I go through it that it can be adapted for a father/daughter relationship - my husband and daughter have a horrible relationship, worse than our marriage.)

  3. Myra, Oh, you are so right about the "timing". I definitely think the principles in the book are universal and transcend any type of relationship. :)

  4. I just got back from watching Fireproof... it was great to see such a different-flavored movie on the regular, big screen
