REVIEW:
All too often nowadays, people seem to have forgotten why we celebrate certain holidays. Christmas has become about who got who the best and most extravagant gift. Easter seems to be about bunnies and chocolate. What about Jesus though? 
This wonderful book is a companion to the film, The Bible. It is a beautiful and very deep way of remembering what Easter is all about. No matter how many times I see or read about the resurrection of Christ, it always moves me to tears. I also end up feeling humbled, loved, sad, angry, empathy and compassion. 
Yes, we eat meals with our families and break bread as Jesus did, but try to remember his sacrifice for us all. Maybe less emphasis on the egg hunt and chocolate and more focus on the reason for the season, Jesus.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
