“Unplanned” tells the true story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who becomes pro-life after witnessing an ultrasound-guided abortion.

Movie review: ‘Creed II’

Both “Creed II” and its precursor, “Creed” (2015), build on the Rocky film franchise by elevating a secondary character’s family while including Rocky Balboa in a supporting role.

Movie review: ‘Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer’

“Gosnell” tells a tale of power misused and abuse covered up, of women mistreated and children done unspeakable harm.

Movie review: ‘God Bless the Broken Road’

The potential for an honest, engaging Christian film about grief and suffering is buried like a seed in the new release from director Harold Cronk but is never given what it needs to germinate and grow.

Movie review: ‘God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness’

The third installment in the “God’s Not Dead” series is a vast improvement over the first two, but this doesn’t mean it’s a good film, only that it’s a better film.

Movie review: ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’

Reviewer Ted Giese calls it “a remarkable film” with “a strong presentation of forgiveness, grace and mercy.”

Movie Review: ‘Wonder’

“Wonder” presents a positive portrayal of a traditional, intact nuclear family struggling with one of the children’s social and health-related challenges.

Movie review: ‘Dunkirk’

The new film “provides a unique and intense film-going experience” that “will keep viewers on the edge of their seats,” writes reviewer Ted Giese.

Movie review: ‘The Case for Christ’

The film is “a cut above other films in the faith-based genre,” with “better script, acting, cinematography and design,” writes reviewer Ted Giese.

Movie review: ‘The Shack’

“The Shack” is confused and disjointed, mixing truth and falsehood, and even as a work of fiction it is not worth defending, writes reviewer Ted Giese.

Movie review: ‘Fences’

“Fences,” starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, explores grief, loss and the difficulties of marriage and family life.

Movie review: ‘Manchester by the Sea’

Few films tackle grief and loss as well as “Manchester by the Sea,” but it would be even better if it featured the characters’ Christian faith in a more active way, writes reviewer Ted Giese.

Movie review: ‘Lion’

This film about adoption and belonging is well worth seeing and discussing with family and friends, writes reviewer Rev. Ted Giese.

Movie review: ‘Silence’

Is denying Jesus to save others from suffering a Christ-like thing to do? The new Martin Scorsese film offers viewers a lot to think about.

Movie review: ‘Hacksaw Ridge’

Mel Gibson’s gory war film is not for everyone, but it takes Christian faith seriously and encourages viewers toward ethical living within their vocations.

Movie review: ‘Sully’

In his film about Captain Chesley Sullenberger’s “miracle on the Hudson,” Director Clint Eastwood manages to make an intimate human story out of events most people only experienced through the media.
