I watched this movie after hearing about it from a friend. And I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I've seen many documentaries on "The Angels" and they all tend to be overly dramatized and overly emotional. And while this movie does portray the Angels in an entirely positive light, it does so in a way that is really uplifting and motivating. Although the Angels might have been a little over-the-top, and the Heaven they lived in might have been more convincing, I found it more effective than the typical documentaries on the subject. The Angels were not portrayed as heroic angels, they were simply people who believed in the presence of God. But I think it would have been more effective if the Angels were portrayed as real people with real lives, instead of being portrayed as super-intelligent machines. But I digress. The movie was a good story and I recommend it.

I had heard about this film and I thought it would be a good one to watch on a rainy day. Boy was I wrong! There are many amazing things about this film. First off the film has a lot of great music. The songs are just amazing, they just get me to the point of the film. Second, this film shows that prayer is very important, but it is not a "need". Many people do pray for something, but that doesn't mean they are going to do anything about it. Third, the film takes a great look at the word of God. The films portrays God as the ultimate authority, but the film doesn't go so far as to say that God is infallible. He has weaknesses. Fourth, the film goes to great lengths to show the history of the Church. There is a lot of information on the origins of the Church, how many different people got involved, etc. The film is very informative. Fifth, there is a great story line in the film. I was able to really follow the story. Sixth, this film is very funny. I was laughing my butt off a lot. Seventh, the film is very uplifting. This film is very inspiring and makes you want to do more for the Church. Eighth, this film is very interesting. This film is interesting from beginning to end. This film also has a great story line and a great message. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes to learn about the history of the Church. I am giving this film a 9 out of 10 because the film is very entertaining and it is a very good film.

I've been watching a few documentaries recently, and this one is not bad. It was pretty informative and the way it was narrated made it seem like it was more of a documentary then an interview. I did have a couple of problems with it. One, the video was in black and white, which was the only way I could tell what was going on, and two, they kept showing old clips from old shows that I'd never heard of before. One thing I like about documentaries is that it's always interesting to watch a documentary from the beginning to the end. This one was different. It was starting with the discussion of a possible TV show, and the first hour is not from that show. It was pretty interesting, but the interview at the end was just too long and was a little over the top. Overall, I think this was a good documentary, but it would have been better if it was shorter. It was great to see George Takei.

What a beautiful documentary. It was so much more than what I expected. I never realized how true to life the topics were. The subjects' stories were so raw. I was stunned that they were still talking about it today. I think that the topic is just so complex and emotional. People need to see the bigger picture. It's amazing to see how much the Church has done for the world. I also loved how they showed how much the church really helped these people. It was amazing to see how much a church can do for one person. I wish I knew more about the people in the church before I got involved.

I loved this film. I was a film student and we were forced to watch it because there was a bad copy of it. It was worth it. This is the second film I have seen this year, the other being THE PROFESSIONAL. This movie is very short and to the point, I can't imagine how difficult it is to make a good documentary about the subject of the movie. The characters are well acted, the movie is well-made, and the message is pretty good. This film has made me want to make a documentary on the subject. I recommend this movie to everyone, regardless of age, gender, race, etc. It is an excellent film, and I am so happy it was released, because I would have missed it.

I am not a Christian and I didn't have a problem with the film. I am a young adult who has been exposed to a Christian worldview. I was told I was "supposed to" have a Jesus-centered view on life and my life had the same label. I think this film is an honest portrayal of a young adult's experience with his or her church and the time he or she spends going through that process. I thought the message was fairly accurate and I really liked the commentary by members of the church. I'm glad I watched it. I would like to thank the producers of this film for taking the time to do this.

I have been studying the Christian church for about ten years, and I have seen the evolution of the church from its early beginnings to its present day. This movie, by both the director and writer, shows the evolution of the church, not just Christianity but a diverse group of religions. The religious roots of the church are as varied as the people. I was struck by how many of the pastors have only recently come to the church. I was also surprised at the lack of understanding on the part of the pastors about how to use this film. The good news is that the audience is informed and the pastors know they need to be more educated about the changes in the church and its influence on people in different areas of the world. I am glad that this film is coming out and I hope to see more films on the subject.

I was unable to find a coherent summary of this documentary. I've tried to find one, but was unsuccessful. I found it helpful that people spoke of their experiences and were respectful of each other. This was an important movie and everyone should see it. I learned a lot and the implications of the people's experiences are still vivid in my mind. The subjects were all sincere and the treatment of the subjects was respectful. There was no gloating, just people sharing their lives and the things they learned from the experience.

It's nice to see this film again, because this film is the film that got me hooked on science, especially of that subject. "The Intelligent Universe" is a masterpiece of research and journalism, in which scientists and scientists researchers from around the world have brought together the very best of the scientific knowledge to help us better understand ourselves and the universe. In the process, they have brought together evidence that we are not alone. This documentary is filled with a great amount of knowledge and insight, and also humor and intrigue. It is a documentary that everyone should see at least once. See it!

This is one of those documentaries that is hard to watch without tears. I don't know why it's such a big hit. It's a true story about a man named Michael Kelly, who turned out to be a very different kind of man than we have come to expect from what we think of as the masculine. You see a very strong Christian type of person in Kelly, yet the film also shows Kelly as a person who cared about his family and would do anything for them. The film shows Kelly's struggle to be a Christian, with his sister's family telling him he had to go to an early death because he would not listen to God. This film gives us an insight into Kelly's life and what led him to turn out to be a different kind of man. I also saw the same documentary on "We Are Legion" and while the idea of a family being torn apart by their own faith is a problem for all of us, there is no real hope for the kids in Kelly's life. His sister was a devoted member of the church and Kelly did everything he could to help her. At the end of the film, Kelly was just sad and said, "It's all been for nothing."

As an atheist I was glad to see the overall message of the movie. However, the use of the phrase "atheist and theist" was just annoying. It also makes the film look like it's trying to be clever and clever works best when it's not using the phrase "atheist". However, it would have been nice if they did not make this statement. Even though I disagree with them, it is still a good film. I do not believe in any gods, so my favorite part of the film is how they showed what it would be like to be a human without religion. I have two other moviegoer friends that believe in gods, and we both agree that the whole idea of the film is something you have to think about.

The story of the AIDS epidemic is the most important of all stories to tell and the film illustrates the story very well. But, not just a movie, but a documentary. The movie is a documentary and it can be categorized as a documentary because it shows the worst part of the epidemic and also the good parts, showing the difficulties, the love, the courage, the courage and the hope. It tells the story from a journalist's point of view. The best thing about the movie is the way the story is told. It's like a documentary and not like a documentary. There are many documentaries, but it is not the same. A documentary tells a story through a narration. The movie does it well, and the narration is extremely impressive. It is the best narration I have ever seen. The actors in the movie do a great job as well. The actors have given a very realistic look at the AIDS epidemic. The story is very moving and it makes you feel the agony and the happiness. It is a good movie to watch. You will not regret watching this movie.

This is a great documentary about the importance of faith and spirituality. Although there are plenty of miracles throughout the film, it's not a miracle story. It is a story about a family that had to overcome several hardships, all in the name of the family. As one of the parents states, "The Lord brought it on them, but the Lord will bring it on you". To show that these hardships were all within the family, it gives the viewer a feeling of how much family values are a part of the Christian faith. As one of the children comments, "We had to do what we had to do to be right". It's a story about faith, and how that faith can change the course of your life. This is an excellent film, and I would recommend it to anyone.
