Beauty and the Beet
Fig Tree Rating and Review


November 6, 2014

“But He’s telling me from up above, I gotta show you love.”

Mirabelle (Kellie Pickler) and her family band (the VeggieTones) break through to the big time with their hit single "Show You Love." On their way to super-stardom, they run into the mean and cranky Finnegan J. Beet, and Miraballe demonstrates the meaning of unconditional love. It’s a Veggie retelling of the classic tale, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ complete with super catchy tunes!

Moms' Night Out
Fig Tree Rating and Review

October 9, 2014

"So you, just be you."

Let me start this off by saying that I am not a mother, I'm an aunt - but spending so much time with my niece, I could definitely understand where the main character, Ally was coming from. I also have a weird fascination with Mommy bloggers, because, they honestly post some of the best recipes. Life, whether or not you're a parent, is definitely full of it's ups and downs. Because, let's face it - no matter how calmly and relaxed you may seem on the outside, everyone gets frazzled, and everyone deserves a chance to go out.


Like a Country Song
Fig Tree Rating and Review


September 19, 2014

Can I level with all of you? Good. When I heard that Billy Ray Cyrus was starring in a Christian film, I was just a little bit skeptical. I grew up listening to Achy Breaky Heart, and the last bit of acting I remember him doing, was in a children's show. (Hannah Montana, anyone?) I went into this movie with a fairly open mind though, because I was really interested to see if Joel Smallbone (of for KING & COUNTRY fame) could act, or if he was another wanna-be actor who should just stick to music. Rounding out the cast is Booboo Stewart, whom I had only seen in the Twilight movies. Needless to say, there was some big name talent, but was this the film for them?

Ragamuffin
Fig Tree Rating and Review

September 4th, 2014

Ragamuffin tells the true story that is based on Rich Mullins’ life. Though the circumstances of his childhood left him broken and insecure, Mullins had an honest and reckless faith is God. Though incredibly gifted, the music industry, and even the church he loved, left him disillusioned. His faith and love in Jesus helped him through the struggles of the darkness in his life that could have been the very thing that could have turned him away from God.

Duck Dynasty: The Complete Fifth Season
Fig Tree Rating and Review

The Quack Pack is back! Watch as the boys at the warehouse continue to get Willie’s goat, Uncle Si’s antics never fail to amaze, and Phil and Miss Kay host a slumber party. Plus, the Robertson clan gets even bigger as two new family members join the action — and stir things up.

When Calls the Heart (Movie)
Fig Tree Rating and Review

July 10, 2014

When Calls the Heart tells the story of Easterner Elizabeth “Beth” Thatcher, a young school teacher in 1910. Through the discovery of her aunt’s secret diary, will Beth find the courage to finally leave the big city to accept a teaching position in a coal mining town on the frontier? And is there potential love for her with a Royal Canadian Mountie?






Son of God
Fig Tree Rating and Review

July 3, 2014

Son of God is a powerful retelling of the Gospel of John, which emphasizes just that; Jesus is the Son of God. Like most historical movies, there are small inaccuracies, but on the whole, the movie captures the political and historical events very well, giving viewers a good sense of the issues of the day. Viewers are taken with Jesus on the journey through his life from birth, to death, and resurrection, watching Jesus preach, preform miracles, and interact with his followers.

Unstoppable
Fig Tree Rating and Review


May 15, 2014

First off, I would like to emphasize his noteworthy metaphor of a human being trying to fathom the entirety of God, being “no different from attempting to cram the entire ocean into a coffee mug.”

Duck Dynasty: The Complete Fourth Season
Fig Tree Rating and Review


April 17, 2014

I will be the first to admit that when Duck Dynasty started, I didn't see the appeal of the show. Like most reality shows, I figured that it wouldn't be really "real" but rather a staged reality. So, when I caught Duck Fever over Christmas - I was really surprised at how genuine the Robertson family comes across as...



Veggies in Space: The Fennel Frontier

Fig Tree Rating and Review



April 1, 2014

Growing up, one of my favorite VeggieTales movies was, Are You My Neighbor? The reason that I loved it, was not only because of the catchy songs - I still wonder if Aunt Ruth really has a beard - but because I always wanted to go to space. Thankfully, with this latest offering from Big Idea productions, I got to re-experience the joy of a space and share it with someone very special...

The Mark 2: Redemption

September 17, 2013

The Mark 2: Redemption is the continuation of the storyline from The Mark. It seamlessly picks up where the previous movie ends, and the story continues. The main character Chad Turner (Craig Scheffer) along with his new companion Dao (Sonia Couling) now find themselves in the midst of total world chaos. As the story unfolds, Chad’s knowledge of Christian teaching tells him that they have just witnessed the Rapture, and the world has now entered the 7-year Tribulation period...


Not Today

Fig Tree Rating and Review


September 5, 2013

When I found out that I’d be watching and reviewing Not Today, I was really excited because its themes of poverty, human trafficking and humanitarianism are extremely dear to my heart. Even it tagline – “none of us are free if one of us is enslaved” – struck me deeply – it’s almost a motto that I live by. Not Today is an honest and action-packed movie that both will touch your heart . . .

MacLarry and the Stinky Cheese Battle


Fig Tree Rating and Review


August 1, 2013

When I first started my job at The Fig Tree, my coworkers found it hilarious that I, at 21 years old, was obsessed with VeggieTales. I guess I’ve still got some serious childhood nostalgia, because when I was asked to review MacLarry & the Stinky Cheese Battle I was ridiculously excited – and I was definitely not let down! MacLarry & the Stinky Cheese Battle tells the story of a . . .
