...shining light on the media, one review at a time
At the heart of Redeemer Reviews is a tremendous love of movies.
A great film can absorb, influence, and emotionally impact audiences like no other form of entertainment. Movies can inspire and build-up, or they can destroy in subtle, yet terrifying ways. As a result, films and filmmakers have the power to shape culture and change the world.
So how do you know if a movie is going to influence you? And will it change you for better or for worse? If you think the only way to find out is to watch the film, risking your money and time in the process, Redeemer Reviews is here to offer a different solution.
Through reviews that critique both old and new films from a Christian point of view, Redeemer Reviews strives to shed some light on the world of movies, allowing you and your family to enjoy the good and avoid the bad.
As a professional screenwriter, filmmaker, and life-long movie lover, Jerusha Agen brings a unique perspective to the reviews featured at RR. With her Christian viewpoint and filmmaking experience, Jerusha is able to critique films based on their moral, redemptive, and artistic value.
Jerusha is passionate about the need for Christian moviegoers to be discerning viewers--to be on the alert to think about what they see and hear on the screen and process it through a worldview that is founded in Scripture. Creating such smart, well-informed and well-armed viewers is the aim of each review Jerusha writes.
In addition to being a film critic, Jerusha writes Christian fiction. This Dance, the first book in the new contemporary fiction series, Sisters Redeemed, will release in August 2013. To find out more, visit Jerusha's author website, SDGwords.com.
