Pure Flix Series Vindication Review

While I am down with Co-Vid19, I took the opportunity to binge watch the show Vindication.  This show is a police drama that is set in the suburbs of Dallas.  Detective Gary Travis is the lead character that is portrayed.

First off, I know this sounds harsh, but I say it when I review most Pure Flix shows.  The acting is good but not great.  The first episode didn’t snag me.  I had to get past that one issue.  The moral of the show was good and it was squeaky clean, which makes me happy.  It was just a struggle.

Then, I watched the second episode.  By the end of last night, I watched all 10 because I was invested in the lives of these characters.  You forget that the acting isn’t great and you see the storyline.  Then, you see the grace of God and how He moves throughout all situations, regardless of if it is good or bad.  He is glorified at the end.

Adult Subjects

Another impressive thing was that Pure Flix did not shy away from tough topics.  I do not suggest this show for 12 and under.  I do encourage that parents watch with their children because the themes of each episode are pertinent to the issues we have today.

Dark web, sex trafficking, drugs, rape, infidelity.  Those are a few of the topics that were written for this show.  There is no nudity, swearing, or anything of that sorts BUT the topics are tough ones.  Please be mindful of that when you watch this (which I highly encourage).

Living the Life

I am a cop’s daughter.  There were things that were definitely relatable as Det. Travis deals with his own family.  He can’t separate “the life” from home life.  It weighs on him, but the wife in this show reminds me of my Oak, my mama.  She is steadfast with her prayers and faith, always trying to reach deeper into him and point him to the cross.  What a beautiful depiction.

I am not super excited about Co-vid19 but I am super excited that season 2 is out 🙂  So, I’m heading over to Pure Flix, signing in, and getting ready to watch it to see what happened to the storylines I was so vested in last night.

Show Me the Father by the Kendricks Brothers

This documentary, Show Me the Father, is by the Kendricks Brothers.  They also created movies such as Flywheel, Fireproof, Courageous, Overcomer, and War Room.  I am telling you, they get better and better.  Everytime I think they can’t top themselves in bringing the Truth of Jesus and His love for us, they do.  This documentary is no different.

There were several aspects of this that touched my heart on a deep deep level.  The story of adoption and how God orchestrated such a thing.  There were beautiful stories of loving relationships and then there were stories where it wasn’t so great.  The Kendricks Brothers were able to point every single story to the Cross.  The gospel was spoken in a mighty way.

I encourage everyone to go and see this film.  It is worth your time.

Well, first off, I just about choked on my fruit snack when I saw the Cubekin framed photo of Jesus.  Their little eyes remind me of those stuffed animals that were so popular years ago.  Furby is the name, I think.  There are some educational things that they talk about. Also, teaching aspects of responsibilities.  I enjoyed the cartoon feature of the scenery.  The colors are engaging as well.

Cubekins

Cubekins is a wholesome, small-town tale of a rambunctious, seven-year-old boy named Kip exploring his ever-changing world while learning more about his never-changing God.

this is a new Christian “Faith-based” Show for Kids, like Veggie Tales set in Mayberry.  It is fun, family-friendly, and faith-based content for children ages 3-8!  The best thing, for me, is it is created by two homeschool dads and their families.

You can buy/rent Cubekins Ep. 01 Invasion of the Cubecumbers on the Cubekins website (or other available streaming platforms).  Also, check out exclusive member content.  There are coloring books, bonus videos, and more.  You can view this by becoming a fan member at cubekins.com!

Thoughts

No language.  There is no violence.  There is a sleazy lawyer in it.  It does have some deep themes.  Themes such as loss, grief, decent, theft, lying.  Also, this girl’s parents die in a water accident trying to save a dolphin.  The 2 sets of grandparents are both wanting custody.  This movie, I would consider, is PG due to the deep themes involved.  It is not for children under 10 years old.

All About Dolphin Island

This is a fun, colorful adventure for the whole family to enjoy!  There is a FREE downloadable Family Discussion Guide to spark meaningful conversations.  These are can be conversations about courage, forgiveness, and/or faith.  It is a heartwarming of love and accountability, entertaining for the whole family.
