But the deal was we would still take the time to watch any DVDs that I had the opportunity to review. We also still watch a couple of things for school, but really, the television has stayed mostly off.
It's been a great March so far. And it makes it so that we all pay a bit more attention when we do turn the thing on.
Watching The Woodcarver was a solid reason for breaking this media fast.
About the Movie:
Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.We really enjoyed the movie. John Ratzenberger is always great, and he was believable as a widowed woodcarver. The interaction between Ernest and Matthew was great, and for me it was a fabulous reminder of the importance of mentors and role models for my teen boys.
The Woodcarver will be available on March 13... but you can win one here!
