Priceless , was a book co authored by The brothers of the duo For King and Country and Nancy Rue. This book was inspired by True Stories, that have happened. I recently tuned in to a live stream of the books launch party. Where they gave more clarification as to how it came about , and now the movie was made. 
Priceless  reads as , 
"Inspired by true events,PRICELESSis a powerful drama/thriller about James Stevens who was, at one time, a good man with a great life -- but that was then and this is now.

Due to come out tomorrow , Live on Forever is a wonderful CD filled with those songs that really are cutting edge. As well as uplifting , one of my favorite songs is definitely battles ,  the afters have taken on life experiences and spun them into songs. To let you know that you are not alone and you have someone by your side. 
Their music is wonderful , and takes on a new meaning with their more pop side. We all face these testaments in life , these battles these shake ups . That are meant to hurt us but instead make us stronger . As it has been told to me, The lord is fighting those battles with you but you must take that first step to fight them yourself as well.  Another song that rings true is wake up my heart, This is one of those that just when you need an uplifting song to ride to or sing to. To wake us up from thi…

Ben-Hur a Tale for Christ Remake : Movie and thoughts

Image
Judah Ben-Hur, a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother, an officer in the Roman army, returns to his homeland after years at sea to seek revenge, but finds redemption.from imdb.com 
This is another movie that is near to my heart and what I believe in though this tale is old in age and is not real. But the characters that are in this movie are , think of it as Fan fiction wrote in the old days. Though the author wrote a story these characters do come from the bible. Certain facts that I came upon, 
1. Despite its 1880 publication date, Ben-Hur was the number one best-selling work of fiction of the 19th century in the United States. The originalNew York Times (11/14/1880) review described Wallace's rendering of New Testament episodes from Christ's life as "thoroughly devotional." 2. The novel Ben-Hur was a recognized source for evangelism. Readers wrote to Wallace describing newfound spiritual salvation through the act of reading. The novel also came to b…

Suicide Squad : movie Review and thoughts

Image
A secret government agency recruits some of the most dangerous incarcerated criminals to form a defensive task force, with their first case leading to a potential apocalypse. From imdb.com

The most talked about movie of the year , was Suicide Squad everyone wanted to watch it . Everyone was ready to bash it , and say it was horrible. As always I wanted to take my movie buddy with the side of caution because this did seem a bit more adult than some super hero movies. But soon I was given permission to take my movie buddy with me to see it . And to say the most he was excited. I had mixed thoughts from my readings and origins from the original characters.But I thought I would still give it a try my last movie was batman vs. Superman. And that within its self was a bit odd , but now everyone is saying that the DVD was better than the movie ever was. Everyone was a bit disappointed with the fact the joker was not as highlighted as much as the rest and he wasn't even in the squad. I mys…

Central Intelligence : Movie Review and Thoughts

Image
After he reconnects with an awkward pal from high school through Facebook, a mild-mannered accountant is lured into the world of international espionage. From Imdb.com

This was another favorite of mine , I took my movie buddy as always. He is always in a good mood for an action flick . We went on a quiet afternoon , I was expecting something that was a bit on the cover your eyes and ears side. I was surprised , this was a delightful comedy though there are some moments that I would not recommend for the younger audience 7 and under. Since this is an action movie , there is shooting there are car chases and another "action" like things such as fighting and such. I loved the rock and sidekick combo. There were funny shots and jokes that really were funny. There was one nude scene but honestly you dont see much. None the less , I loved this movie for the hart and rock these two are comedy gold! and they make the most of the movie . Though this has been in the movies for awhile a…
