Movie Review: “The Perfect Wave”

Review by Esther Seim, 17

When life at home as a young bachelor proves to be too dull, Ian McCormack (Scott Eastwood) sells his car and sets out on the surfing adventure of his life in hopes of finding the perfect wave—the kind of wave that surfers claim can bring a person as close to eternity as is possible in this world. Yet his mother, (Cheryl Ladd), doesn’t forget about her wayward son and prays for his safety. Ian travels from one place to the next, searching for hot surf-spots and meeting new people, including a lovely young lady named Annabelle (Rachel Hendrix). Then, while deep sea diving, Ian has a near-fatal accident. Suddenly, he finds himself face-to-face with the Maker he has ignored his whole life.

SCORE: 84/100

Do you know what I love about Labor Day until Christmas? The biggest releases from the biggest companies usually come in that time frame. Disney Infinity squeaked out a victory over Skylanders last year. Can Disney Interactive continue that trend with Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes?

"Bright Side" by OBB

Releasing their self titled EP in 2013 after their signing to Curb Records (home of artists like Mikeschair, Natalie Grant and Plumb, to name a few), OBB, a band of brothers (Zach, Jacob and Nich Oswald), are ready to bring to the world their full length album debut in Bright Side. While they are still relatively new to the label and new to Christian music in general, this pop band with mainstream similarities to the Jonas Brothers or One Direction have made their statements clear- to bring us positive music as we are reminded of the Saviour’s love for us.

Review: "Fifa 15" - Playstation 4/Xbox One

Reviewed by Frank for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 79/100

The Fifa franchise is still trying to claw its way back up after including highly controversial content that sent families running. I have not discovered the offensive deviant content in Fifa 15 as of yet. It could be hidden in there somewhere. I know on launch day that EA Sports implemented a variety of bug fixes.

Tom Harding only wants the truth. But the truth is becoming more dangerous with every passing minute.

As a reporter for his high school newspaper, Tom Harding was tracking the best story of his life—when, suddenly, his life turned very, very weird. He woke up one morning to find his house empty . . . his street empty . . . his whole town empty . . . empty except for an eerie, creeping fog—and whatever creatures were slowly moving toward him through the fog.

Review: "Dig Dog Out" - PC

Reviewed by WMG for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 70/100

Dig Dog Out is an indie game similar to Dig Dug. There are differences of course. Like we play a dog character who is trying to get all the bones on the screen. The dog has some kind of a weapon that can shoot the enemy characters - like mice. Dig Dog Out does not let families climb up holes they have dug. Dirt is needed to move up.

By Daniel Darling

Luke 1 (see complete text below)

Why is Christmas such a magical time of year? I think its because everyone is expecting a miracle at Christmas. Consider all the popular movies. Each one has a miracle as it’s central plot. Whether it’s a boy hoping his parents get back together, a shop-owner hoping he can keep his business running, or a town who needs a new hero to help “save Christmas.”

You might be reading this and wishing for your own miracle this Christmas. It’s probably much smaller than what makes a holiday movie. But it no less important to you.

Last week, I got the chance to interview Rachel Hendrix (known best for her lead role in the 2011 faith-based film, October Baby) about her latest Christian film, The Perfect Wave. She was such an awesome, down-to-earth type of gal and I loved every minute of our conversation! Enjoy!

Q: “The Perfect Wave” was filmed in five different exotic surfing locations. Can you talk a bit about your travels while shooting?

Review: "Sing Party" - Wii U

Reviewed by Paul for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 59/100

Sing Party was a launch title for the Wii U around Christmas of 2012. For some odd reason a reviewable copy was not provided. So we put it on our purchase list, and when it came down into a price range we were willing to pay - we bought it. For the sole purpose of doing a review. I had my suspicions concerning Sing Party. Sadly this karaoke game is worse than I had thought.

In the last issue of Family Friendly Gaming we reviewed the different indie games in the Journey Collector’s Edition. Each is a separate game that is downloadable on the Playstation Network. This issue I wanted to review the package of three games at the same time. Sort of what does it feel like to have three games in one package?

FILM SYNOPSIS: Alan Powell, son of Fort Myers pastor Richard Powell, is receiving rave reviews for his performance as Jed King in The Song. Already no stranger to success, Alan is in the Christian band “Anthem Lights”—an Internet sensation with YouTube videos viewed more than 30 million times. But this was his first acting role and, according to director Richie Ramsey, he pulls off a dynamic range. A music-driven romantic drama, The Song shows Jed King’s search for things we all long for: significance and meaning.

SCORE: 69/100

I found Zoo Hospital on the Wii for a low price on clearance. This animal related video game was on our list so I spent the money to purchase it. I am so glad I did. We take care of the animals in a zoo in Zoo Hospital. In fact these animals need surgery all the time. We go from animal to animal performing surgery. Some animals need more than one surgery at a time.

More Faith-Based Films To Hit Theaters

By Phil Boatwright

Faith-based films are becoming more abundant. What’s more, they are becoming more and more like real movies, not just cinematic sermonettes. And better still, many Hollywood actors looking for roles of substance are embracing film characters that depict the spiritual nature of mankind.
