References, 11-15 Sermon

Last week I mentioned two movies in my sermon, so I'll post links to the trailers here.

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire
opened locally (finally) and is showing at the Lagoon and in Brooklyn Center. It introduces Gabourey Sidibe and stars Mo'Nique and Mariah Carey. It is rated R. The StarTribune reviewed it today here.

The other movie, a more mainstream one, is based on the true story of Michael Oher, the star left tackle for the Baltimore Ravens. The Blind Side stars Sandra Bullock, Kathy Bates and Tim McGraw and introduces Quinton Aaron. It opens today and is showing in several theaters and is rated PG-13.

Blind Side is indeed a great sports movie (but not just a sports movie). Michelle who claims she is no maven of sports analogies has broken out into new territory. The sports analogies receive their due in this wonderful family film. I am still wondering if I was ever tested for acumen in protectivemess like the future nfl lineman in this movie.
