Films Worth Watching! - Movie News & Reviews



Unstoppable
Initially I was inspired to watch this film as it focuses on the age-old question of WHY BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE. If you have suffered tragedy or loss this is a good film to watch. Artistically executed and interesting. While watching this film I also realized that if you watch this film with the incorrect attitude you might miss the hidden beauty communicated in it. This question, in your life, can only really be answered by God himself should you allow Him to. I myself was in a season of being bewildered by tragedy and God was the one who helped me understand parts of the tragedy I experienced. This film just confirmed what God had already communicated and to be honest it has brought a sense of relief in me. So what I am actually saying is, you might not appreciate this film with the depth it was intended with if you haven’t spoken and listened to God first regarding the subject. If Grief or Tragedy has left you stale or bewildered in your walk with God. This is the film to explore.

The Drop Box

a Touching, documentary, film displaying the Father Heart of God. 
From beginning to end I sat close to tears with the deep awareness 
of how much I take for granted everyday. We get so comfortable and familiar with our struggles. When they are measured against the lives and daily struggles of others they look like a summer holiday! In my opinion, all parents and parents to be should watch this amazingly compassionate man Living the life God has called him into. This film evokes so much emotion. I just have a deep appreciation for what this man and his family is doing. 
It is wonderful that his story is being told around the world, raising awareness and support.

THE ROAR

Dis lanklaas wat 'n fliek my so opgewonde gehad het dat ek my man wil afvlieg om die uitsending in George te gaan kyk. Die fliek waarvan ek praat is THE ROAR, 'n Frans Cronjé film, wat ek onlangs in Pretoria met die vertoning daar gaan kyk het vir resensie doeleindes. Die film stem so wonderlik ooreen met Nasie se leuse en hartklop...
Die hele fliek gaan daaroor om uit te vind wat jou lewensdoel is, dit raak te sien en om dit te bereik. Spreker, Gustav Gous was ook daar gewees. Hy praat gereeld oor lewensdoel en sy insprake was vir my baie spesiaal gewees. Hy het gesê mense dink hulle het net een doel, maar ons het eintlik ten minste 9 doele wat God vir ons elkeen uniek gemaak/gegee het. Dit was vir my 'n baie lekker ervaring en veral om te sien hoe opgewonde Frans Cronjé is oor hierdie film!
The Roar vorm deel van 3 verskillende films onder die Purpose Campaign. 6 Below wys reeds by lokette, The Roar en Victor is die ander twee en word die 2de Maart en die 13de April bekend…

Hennie Meyer Ceramics

Hennie Meyer is 'n keramiek kunstenaar van Kaapstad. Sy klei-kunswerke wek kalmte, nuuskierigheid en bewondering. 


1.Wanneer het jy jou passie om met klei/keramiek as medium te werk ontdek?
Ek is die jaar na matriek as Rotariër uitruilstudent na Australië. Dit was in 1984. Die skool in Australië het geweier om op daardie stadium ’n “wit” Suid Afrikaner in die skool in te neem. Die enigste tersiëre instansie wat bereid was om my te onderrig was die plaaslike technikon en ook net die kunsdepartement! So ek was baie gelukkig om heeltemal toevallig vir ’n jaar lank ’n diploma in keramiek te kon doen. Die medium het my perfek gepas. Ek het teruggekom en kunsonderwys op Stellenbosch studeer. Op Stellenbosch was ’n wonderlike dosent in keramiek, David Steele, wat my liefde vir klei verder aangemoedig en ontwikkel het.

2. Wat inspireer meeste van jou werk?

Die klei self is die sterkste inspirasie. Klei is ’n wonderlike medium. Wanneer ek met die klei werk is ek baie bewus van die proses. Hie…

The Roar and I

As I sat down in front of my computer to write what is burning in my heart, with that loathsome cape of self-doubt hanging around my shoulders – what makes me think that I’m worthy of sharing my views with the world? – a randomly generated Windows Spotlight Image greets me. Yes, as you can see a mighty lion relaxing in the sun, face into the wind. Powerful and content. I couldn’t help but chuckle and you will soon see why.

The recently released film, The Roar, tells a powerful tale of Louise (Almarie du Preez), a young woman who has to make some important decisions about her future. Not only her future, her destiny. The viewers follow her journey of discovery in the setting of the bushveld family farm and lodge ran by her father, Ranger (Frans Cronjé), who struggles with finding his footing in life after the passing of his wife. Not to forget her fiancé, André (Heinz Winkler), who is not only a pillar of strength to Louise, but her comrade in the day-to-day running of the business as …
