FILM SYNOPSIS: Black Or White is the story of a grandfather (Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner) who is suddenly left to care for his beloved 7-year-old granddaughter. When her paternal grandmother (Academy Award® winner Octavia Spencer) seeks custody with the help of her brother (Anthony Mackie), the little girl is torn between two families who love her deeply. With the best intentions at heart, both families fight for what they feel is right and are soon forced to confront their true feelings about race, forgiveness, and understanding. Anchored by an all-star cast and based on real events, the movie is a look at two seemingly different worlds, in which nothing is as simple as black or white.

Review: "The Reagans: The Legacy Endures" - DVD

Film And DVD Reviews by Phil Boatwright

This 91-minute straight to DVD documentary from Image Entertainment can be seen as a love letter to the 40th President of the United States and his First Lady. Don’t like Ronald Reagan? Then you may cringe a bit. But it is nice to see a Republican spotlighted by anyone other than the liberal media. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Robert D. Kline, the film is unrated, containing no objectionable material (unless you’re Walter Mondale). Release date: 2/3/15

SCORE: 60/100

In Playworld Superheroes gamers take on the role of a child exercising their imagination. Gamers start with a helmet that they cut the eyes out of. Then they can color it with a crayon. From there we get a crest for our chests, and then an arm piece. As you progress in the game additional gear is added.

This is Leonardo, a partially mummified dinosaur found in Montana. The skin impressions, some skin pigmentation, muscle, and even stomach contents are intact. This kind of preservation is only possible with fast preservation. Global flood anyone? Hint. Hint.

Most scientists say this dinosaur died and was buried by a *local* flood.

My kids used to play this free browser game a few years back where you had to rotate blocks from a starting point to an ending point. Thing is the blocks have to align just right or you would not succeed. Breezeblox on the Wii U is very similar to that old free browser games.

Questions for Evolutionists

by Don Batten for: Creation.com

How did blind chemistry create mind/intelligence, meaning, altruism and morality? If everything evolved, and we invented God, as per evolutionary teaching, what purpose or meaning is there to human life? Should students be learning nihilism (life is meaningless) in science classes?

Though the gentlemen who make up New Zealand-originated electro pop/rock outfit Rapture Ruckus have lived in the states for several years now, they are still one of Christian music's best kept secrets. Several releases and multiple singles under their belt, they are simply one of those creatively innovative bands who makes you wonder why they don't have more attention.

Nihilumbra shows the entire video game industry that an interesting video game can be created, that keeps players interested and engaged from start to finish. Nihilumbra talks to the player frequently. It hints at things that have happened. It is then up to the player to accept those at face value or try to see if there is some deeper meaning.
