Since Kari is upset that I haven't written anything in awhile, here goes......(I've just enjoyed reading and commenting on everyone else's blogs!) We went to see the movie Thr3e tonight which is based on a book by Ted Dekker. I had never heard of Ted Dekker until Mike wanted the new Frank Peretti book for Christmas which was co-authored by Ted Dekker. It was a good movie! It comes out in theaters Friday night. (We managed to get free tickets to this early-bird showing through our Christian radio station, WBFJ. By the way, how do you get those cool links to show up like Robin and Kari do? Ok, so now how do I get the underline off?) Anyway, it's a suspense movie which is PG-13, probably for the "violence" and suspense. Young children should not go see it. We were in a theater filled with teenagers from the Salvation Army Girls and Boys Clubs. Needless to say, it wasn't really quiet during the movie, but I still managed to get into it. :) The suspense was so good that Mike even jumped during one part. I don't want to give away the plot, but this is about how it starts out. Imagine that you're driving down the road and you get a private call on your cell phone. When you answer, someone on the other end says to call the local newspaper and confess your sin. If you don't, your car will blow up in 3 minutes. You wonder if it is a crank call or a serious one. So, you pull over into an empty field, grab your cell phone and run, then your car blows up! Wow! The story did have a great ending! Mike and I were both guessing "who did it" and we were both wrong! (Mike isn't usually wrong.) We really enjoyed the movie and can't wait to read the book. The movie is worth seeing. What other movies are out there that are good but not full of filth?
