This Is Our Time DVD Movie Review & Giveaway

A movie with a message.  A God message.  A message we all need to hear, whether young or old or somewhere in between.

God has a purpose in your life.

Introducing This Is Our Time, the latest Christian DVD that is set to release on April 16, 2013.  Pop the popcorn and gather the family in the living room.  Oh, and don't forget a box of tissues.  Here is what the storyline brings:

The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”

It's always great to find a movie with a moral message.  It's even greater to find a movie that puts God in the center, shows people praying, quotes the scripture, and leaves you feeling like you want to work harder to serve Him.  This Is Our Time had all of that.  I cried.  I laughed.  But, I also yawned at a few parts.  My family and I agreed that some of the acting was a bit amateurish and cheesy.  Some of the dialect seemed unnatural, as if the writer was trying to get his point across a little too hard.  With that all being said and considering all the other positive points it offered, we gave it a collective 7.5 on a 10 point scale and will still recommend it as an excellent Saturday night family movie.

  1. I felt the same way about the movie. It was sweet with a great message but the word "cheesy" came to mind quite a few times. Great review! Lori

  2. I liked all your posts on Tourettes. I know someone in real life that has Tourettes. It's so important to let others know about Tourettes.
