Review & Give-away: War Room

WE HAVE A WINNER! CONGRATULATIONS WEGNER FAMILY! I have sent you an email!!!


I was so excited to have the opportunity to review the film War Room for the awesome people over at Fishflix.com.
  
And now, I am so excited to give a copy of this DVD away to one of my Blog readers.

I have to be honest. I always have my "wall up" when it comes to Christian films. I want Christian productions to be of the same quality as secular productions and don't have much patience when they are not. War Room is from the creators of Fireproof and Courageous. I really enjoyed Fireproof but the acting was quiet "so-so." And I have yet to see Courageous. (Hey Fishflix.com -- can I review this one for you too?!)

I put this movie on after the kids went to bedthinking, "I'll watch a few minutes, go to bed, and finish it the next day."

I definitely finished it that night.

It was that good.

I next gave the film to my in-laws. My father-in-law is a movie buff. He doesn't want to waste his time with sub-par movies. He kind of shrugged when I suggested he and mom watch the film. But the next day he came up to me, put it back in my hand and exclaimed, "This was ... awesome!" He told me that my mother-in-law put it on, and he planned on just reading his book while she was watching it but that he immediately got hooked and was blown away by the movie and the message.

This is a movie for Christians. It is a movie to inspire us to pray. To change our world. To not give up. To not accept the world's standards for our marriages, our families, and our lives. I finished this movie truly inspired. I wanted to start praying more immediately. I wanted to become a better woman of God. I wanted to be a better community member and friend and family member. I wanted to quit all my pettiness and concentrate on what really matters.

War Room was, without a doubt, the best Christian movie I have ever seen. Absolutely awesome, amazing, excellent, and inspiring. This is one you have to see. 

And I'm going to start by giving it away to one lucky reader! Just leave a comment with your email address, and one week from today, I will pick a winner to receive a copy of the DVD and bonus features.

(I actually watched most of the bonus features on the DVD as well. (I never do that!) Bonus features included: The making of War Room, bloopers and outtakes, deleted scenes, From Auditioning to Acting, and much more.)

So let the commenting begin!

P.S. Fishflix.com provided me with a free copy of this film in exchange for my honest and fair review. If you have never been over to the Fishflix website, you are missing out on some amazing family entertainment. This is a Christian-run company. I personally know one of the Godly men behind this enterprise and encourage you to look to them for your DVD needs!
