    "This is not a bad Christian film for someone like me who's not Christian. The Kendrick brothers really put their hearts into it into creating this film. I've seen their other films. In this movie, prayer is shown as a meditation thing and not really as something you should do coz you're scared of something. It was shown as something you do in order to think through clearly. And I think that aspect makes it relatable even to non-Christians, that prayer is meditation to and a way to achieve a peace of mind."

    "I initially liked the premise of this movie. An atheist philosophy prof who wanted his students to sign a "God is dead" declaration for them to pass. All signed but for one boy. But it ended there. I didn't get to feel the dynamics of the characters and their beliefs. All of them felt flat imo. Rather felt like I wasted more than an hour sitting through this movie"

    "As a child when I first watched Narnia, I imagined that our wardrobe would really lead into some snowy kingdom on the other side. The wolrd which is so magical and there are many other places to discover... hey, hadn't you imagined that there was actually another world when you open your cabinet? This aspect I couldn't erally forget even as an adult."

    "I really like the simplicity of this movie which brings forth the message of "have a fireproof marriage" across. Every marriage or relationships experience challenges which can burn down its foundation: love. This movie showed how to save the foundation from fire, and build a fireproof love after the devastation. This is such a sweet story."

    "This movie had won the 1981 Best Picture in the Academy award. I saw this played on TV on a Saturday night with my father back then. This movie really touched on the aspect of racism even on very subtle form yet the tension was clearly visible in the way the actors act the tension out. No wonder this won a prestigious award."

    "Mel Gibson's prowess for creating realistic movies is very evident in his Passion of Christ. I must say this movie had my heart squeezed into tiny pieces becasue this movie focused more on how Christ was made to suffer in teh hands of sinners. The whip, wounds, and pain looked so real! How did Gibson ever do that???"
