Safe Haven - What Are You Watching?

I saw these movies from our library over the past few months.

Take This Waltz

Interesting movie, but I don't get what her problem is. She has a great husband. HE TALKS to her, cooks for her, seems to take an interest in her...
She needs to have a month with mine then eh.

But forget all that above. It's an interesting movie on the human condition in many cases.


2. Unconditional
Based on a true story.

"It's not a dead end if it takes you somewhere you need to be."

This move is a must see. It's just amazing. OH and get out the kleenex.
Photo: "Absolutely love this movie!!! Everyone should see it. I shared with our youth group last week. They loved it too and even clapped at the end and now I will be doing the Bible study with them. Thanks for creating this amazing movie!!!" Thanks Tammy. If you'd like to take a group deeper in the themes of Unconditional, learn more here: http://www.unconditionalthemovie.com/resources

3. Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chung Li
Now I wish I could learn to fight like that, but dancing is pretty close right? :)
I like when evil get their due.
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Movie
Devastated by the kidnapping of her father, Chun-Li takes to the streets of Hong Kong, embarking on an epic quest for justice - and hurtling toward a confrontation with a seemingly unstoppable foe.

4. Safe Haven

When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.

But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her . . . a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo’s empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards . . . and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.

5. The Hunger Games
I was wondering what I was missing out on. I found the DVD at our library. Very interesting show, but I don't really get the over the top fanfare. Maybe it's just me. But yes, I did enjoy watching it.


6. Super 8

This was an interesting one too. Of course I was rooting for the kids :)

In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth - something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

7. The Family That Preys
Why do people never learn? Do you really think they are going to leave their spouse for a fling? Of course it happens, but not very high on the percentage chart.
Interesting movie
The Family That Preys
Alice Pratt, a hard working Christian woman, raised her two daughters while managing a simple diner of her own. Her snobbish and arrogant daughter Andrea graduated in Economic Science and works in a construction corporation while her sister Pam stayed with Alice and worked in the diner.

Andrea is married to construction worker Chris, who works in the same corporation as his wife but dreams of starting up his own business. However she is being unfaithful to him - with their boss William Cartwright. William is the son of Alice's best friend, the wealthy Charlotte Cartwright. While Alice travels with Charlotte on a road trip, the ambition and infidelity of William triggers a series of events that will affect relationships in both families

  1. I definitely need to see the movies on this list that I haven't already seen. I loved Catching fire and Safe Haven, and now REALLY must see Take This Waltz (I love love LOVE Seth Rogen!) and Unconditional.

    The library is a great resource for movies :)

  7. I loved Safe Haven and Hunger Games. I haven't seen the others on the list, but I would love to catch The Family that Preys. I quite like Tyler Perry movies so I have to add this one to my list.

    1. You really do, but I think...no I don't get it. I can understand a woman in an abusive relationship, but not her.

      I'm starting to have same phobia. I just want less. More space. less.
