Review of The Way Home (DVD)

Last week I received a movie called The Way Home (DVD) with Dean Cain. It is about a family planning on going on vacation until their son goes missing. The father Dean Cain takes his eyes off his son for a minute and then the son disappears. The whole movie is about finding his son and using the faith of God to help. I liked some aspects of this movie. I liked that the use of prayer helped this family cope with the struggles of their missing son until the end when he was found. When you pray to God and ask for something in his will, he will answer. God is always there to talk to, you will never get a busy signal, just ask for God and he is there to help. And many scriptures from the bible can show you that as well.

The thing I did not like about this movie is how when he prayed to God, he said God please do not take my child, show me a sign if he is still alive. That makes me so angry, God does not take children from their parents. Just like God does not cause natural disasters either. Sometimes unforeseen occurences happen, it doesn't mean that God causes things to happen at all. Sometimes you just have no control over what happens in life. But God is a loving and caring God, and does not like to see us suffer. And God does not cause suffering either which you can read about in the scripture James 1:13 which reads when under trial, let no one say I am being tried by God. For the evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone. Another good scripture is Matthew 11:28,29 which reads, come to me all you who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am lowly in heart and you will find refreshment for you souls.

So basically the whole movie was just ok. It got my attention the whole time and I was rejoiced when the son was found along with the family but I did not like the misconception being brought about, about God. People need to know the truth about God and what kind of God he is. So hopefully this review will do that. So I would not recommend this movie to anyone just for how they had some misconceptions in the movie and that offended me.

'Extra' Exclusive: Kim Kardashian on Baby, Botox and Romance Rumors

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian visited "Extra's" Mario Lopez at The Grove to chat about her European vacation, being hounded by paparazzi -- and all those pesky rumors.

Mario asked Kim if she was surprised by the paparazzi onslaught when she and her mother, Kris Jenner, were in Europe. "Absolutely! I mean when we went to Paris, and we'd come out of the hotel, there'd be so many fans and so much paparazzi! The guy at the Ritz Hotel there was like, 'I have never seen it like this since like Princess Diana' and I was like, 'Are you serious?'

While Kardashian was away, there were all kinds of different rumors flying around, including one about her shopping for a home pregnancy test. "Do I look pregnant? That's all I'm gonna ask," Kim responded.

She does admit she had Botox. "I'm turning 30 this year. I was freaking out, so it's something that I wanted to do. The end result was that I don't like it. I don't think it is right for me, so just to show people, hey, you know, try other things!"

And what about Kardashian's love life? She is no longer dating NFL player Miles Austin and emphatically denies hooking up with singer Chris Brown. "When did that happen? That's not true, and I had to Twitter that because, like, seriously, I hate the dating rumors, if it's not true. I don't like to be linked to people."
She added, "I guess you could say I'm single. I'm having Kim time. It's really hard. I found it so hard to have a relationship and a career at the same time."

What about a turn on "The Bachlorette"? She laughed, "Who knows, by 35 if I don't find someone and I'm not married, then I'll do 'The Bachelorette.'"


Katherine Heigl Has A Tumble

Katherine Heigl is unsure of whether she wants to pursue her equestrian career after getting injured during horseback riding at her Utah ranch.

She had decided to start competitive horse training at this ranch she has, however she admits that she is very nervous to get back into the saddle after the fall where she split her knee open! Owch!

She admits that she really doesn’t know what she is doing, and doesn’t blame the horse at all. She lost control and she just couldn’t stop him!

He was running into the walls and I just leaped off of him into these iron bars and I stood there bleeding watching him go berserk

Katherine believes that she was lucky she jumped off when she did, since all she ended up with was a injured knee! "I split my fingernail open and cut my knee, it wasn't that bad. I didn't break anything."


Life & Style Exclusive: Seth Rogen is engaged

It's a happy ending for this funnyman! Life & Style can exclusively reveal that actor and writer Seth Rogen, 28, has proposed to his longtime girlfriend, writer and actress Lauren Miller, also 28. "He surprised her with the proposal," a friend of Seth's tells Life & Style. "She'd started giving up hope that he would ever pop the question."

Seth asked Lauren - whom he's been dating since 2004 - to be his bride just last week, after the two returned from visiting family in Boston. "Her family adores him; everyone is thrilled to plan a wedding," the friend adds. As for Seth, there's no doubt as to how he feels about Lauren: "I have a girlfriend who is far prettier than I should have," he's said.

Congrats to the happy couple!

'Big Bang Theory' extends hiatus, Kaley Cuoco to miss 'a few' episodes

First the good news: Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco is expected to make a full recovery in the wake of a weekend horseback-riding accident that left her with a fractured leg.

Now the bad news: It looks like the CBS hitcom will be Penny-less for more than one episode.

Although a Warner Bros. spokesperson declined to comment, a Big Bang source confirms that Cuoco—who remains hospitalized in Los Angeles—is now expected to miss “a few” episodes; initial reports had her missing just a single episode.

Additionally, the show—which was previously scheduled to go on hiatus next week—will shut down production for an additional week. Producers will use the extra downtime to determine how best to explain Cuoco’s absence onscreen (Mandi Bierly’s got a few ideas!).

The source points out that Big Bang‘s air schedule will not be impacted by the disruption, which comes as the series is making a high-profile move to Thursday nights. Judging by how well Sheldon & Co. performed in repeats last night, industry analysts (read: me) expect next week’s fourth-season premiere to trounce the competition.


Miley Cyrus Allegedly Hits, Runs ... But Hit-and-Run?

The owner of the other car -- a Los Angeles restaurant parking attendant -- claims Hannah Montana herself smacked into his parked car. We spoke to his attorney, Mauro Fiore, who says Miley claimed the white Benz she was driving belonged to her BF ... but we checked and it's actually registered to her mom.

Fiore says Miley left her phone number with the parking attendant -- whose '91 Camry was totaled according to Fiore -- and then sped off. The attendant didn't file a police report at the time -- but his lawyer says he plans to do so today.

As for whether Miley's actions constitute a hit-and-run ... police tell us, hypothetically speaking, it doesn't because she left contact information with the alleged victim.

Miley's rep had no comment.

'Big Bang' Star Falls Off Horse, Of Course, Of Course

Kaley Cuoco -- the really hot star of "The Big Bang Theory" -- broke one of her really hot legs in a horse accident this weekend ... sources tell TMZ.

Kaley -- who also posed for "Maxim" -- is laid up in an L.A. hospital and won't be able to tape her show tomorrow night. The show, by the way, is a huge hit for CBS -- anchoring its fall lineup on Thursdays at 8 PM.

We're told the show will tape without Kaley tomorrow and if she's able she'll shoot her scenes next week. But if the injury is more serious, we're told they'll have to temporarily write around her.

So much for break a leg ...

Another Book Review

**Disclaimer- This review may offend people so I am simply going to say this, if you start reading this and get offended then stop reading it and leave. And if you feel that I have offended you so much that you need to leave a comment on my blog, I will delete the comment afterward. So please do not comment if you are offended by this, simply leave. This is my opinion of the book and I do not care if it makes you mad or whatever. This is my blog and I am entitled to my opinion.**

Hey everyone. Here is another book review on a book I read called Uncle Sam's plantation by Star Parker. This book was simply a great read. The main point of the book is how people believe that the Gov't will take care of them but in reality the Gov't takes advantage of people and ends up hurting people and not helping them. Another main point of the book is how religion actually helps people and if we all followed religion we would be happier. The world is in chaos right now because people are not following the standards of the bible. The book talks about how their are so many abortions every year because people belive it is ok to kill a kid when the bible clearly states how abortion is wrong and how a fetus is a living breathing creature from moment of conception. And how marriage is failing in the world because people don't stay with the traditional values of marriage set forth in the bible. The bible clearly states that marriage is between a man and woman and not between man and man and women and women and that when you try to have gay marriage it causes problems in the world and messes up marriages. The author basically makes a point that if people simply followed the bible messages we would all be much happier. And I agree. The bible is a great tool to have to leave a simply and happier life.
