Movie Review and Giveaway~This Is Our Time DVD


This Is Our Time is a new DVD by Pure Flix that releases tomorrow, April 16.  I had the opportunity to watch this movie with my husband and 18-year-old daughter last Saturday.  


About the Movie: This is our Time begins with the college graduation of five close Christian friends, who all want to make a difference in the world. They are all seeking out their purposes in life, and some of the friends have clearer ideas of their paths.  Unfortunately, tragedy strikes the close-knit group,  and their friendship and their faith are tested in ways they never imagined.  “The experiences the characters in THIS IS OUR TIME face are the kinds of real-life ups and downs, successes and devastation, all of us encounter in living life,” said Lisa Arnold, the film’s writer, director and co-producer. “I wanted to tell a story that would resonate with young people just stepping out into the world to make their mark that would help them see that no matter the circumstances they face, God is always with them, loving them, guiding them.”
"What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”

THIS IS OUR TIME has received The Dove Foundation’s Family Seal of Approval (earning the highest rating of five Doves) and is recommended for all ages. It also features appearances by Hollywood veterans Eric Roberts, Erik Estrada and Dawn Wells.


It will be available nationwide at Family Christian Stores and most Christian online and brick-and-mortar retail stores nationwide.

Coinciding with the movie’s DVD release, Pure Flix is teaming with Family Christian Stores and other Christian retailers to award eight $2,500 college scholarships through registrations submitted through FamilyChristian.com and other websites representing more than 2,000 retail outlets nationwide. Participation eligibility and rules can be found at www.thisisourtimemovie.com.
What I (We) Thought: 
Great movie! The characters were all easy to quickly connect with, and the storyline kept our attention the entire time.  We all enjoyed the movie, and will probably watch it again.  I am glad I didn't have my ten-year-old watch it with us, because it would have been too over his head and not relevant to his time in life. I will have him watch it in several years, though!   This was a great movie to watch with our daughter who is just about to graduate High School.  Right now, she is getting so much information from many sources and feels pressure to choose a major, to choose her future path now.  The movie stresses God's time, not our time, and that is a lesson I feel we all need to be reminded of continually throughout our lives.  It can be so easy to get caught up in our plans, our desires, our problems-but only God's plan matters.

The Shining - I absolutely do not let my children ride the Big Wheel in the house nor do I stay anywhere alone in the woods where we would be snowed in.

American Beauty.

I would have to say "Fireproof." It shows me how God can save marriages and other relationships if we let Him. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.
