Movie Rush: Fireproof
In case you didn’t notice, a new movie is coming out on DVD today. Maybe you didn’t even notice it when it was in theaters. But no worries! It is now on DVD, and you can go out and buy it today!
What is this movie? It’s called Fireproof, and it came out in theaters in the middle of fall. If you missed it, wow did you miss a great movie. It’s about a firefighter named Caleb Holt, whose duty as a firefighter is to “never leave your partner behind”. Things seem to be going pretty well when he’s at the station, but when he gets home, sparks fly between him and his wife. She wants a divorce. Caleb’s father challenges him to the “Love Dare”: a 40-day program that Caleb would use to love his wife. But will Caleb be able to keep his marriage together?
This movie is excellent. Great action, and a wonderful story. I would recommend it with a LOT of stars. Plus, it stars Kirk Cameron. You know, my family felt so highly about this movie that we went to the theater to see it. Now, that’s saying a lot. The last time I had been to the movie theater before Fireproof in October was early June. And that was with a group! So, we paid a pretty penny, but it was so worth it. I don’t want to give any of the movie away, or else I would be telling you even more how excellent it is. Just go buy it, or at least rent it or borrow it from a friend. I would especially recommend it for married couples, but it is wonderful for everyone else, too.
Now let me tell you about the church that made this movie. They are a congregation from Georgia called Sherwood Baptist Church. Two of their associate pastors Alex and Stephen Kendrick always wanted to make movies. The brothers took over the church’s first project. Their first movie was Flywheel, which was made on a $20,000 budget and an all-volunteer cast. I wouldn’t recommend it that much, because it’s terribly cheesy and the acting is pretty bad. But the second movie was Facing the Giants. Now, it wouldn’t be surprising if you missed that one, but it was in theaters, and it was excellent. You know, you might as well pick up a copy of that while you’re getting Fireproof.
This one might appeal to the sports fans here more that Fireproof, but still get both. Facing the Giants is about a high school football team who has not had a winning season for a very long time. Coach Grant Taylor is dealing with unrest from the parents of his players, as well as personal problems. When he starts a new team philosophy, will he be able to revive his team? This is a wonderful movie, much better acting than Flywheel. There’s some amazing football action, and what a story!
So get out there today, buy these movies, and support these movies. You will enjoy them a lot, I can guarantee that. I can’t wait to get out and buy Fireproof myself! What a movie. Tell me what you think after you’ve watched them!!
