snap·shot – a brief appraisal, summary, or profile.

Every Monday we hope to provide our readers with snapshots of films being released for the upcoming weekend. This will be a brief summary of films that will assist our readers in the area of discernment.  Instead of searching other sites and reading lengthy articles, it’s our hope to provide a concise list of all the films of the weekend in one consolidated post. If you wonder why we don’t list the MPAA ratings, please click here.

  • Moneyball – The true story (we know how that goes) of Oakland A’s general manager, Billy Beane, who assembles a budgeted team based off computer analysis.  Genre – Drama; content – some strong language
  • Abduction – A young man discovers that he was kidnapped as a child and also uncovers a conspiracy that may cost him his life.  Genre – Action, thriller, mystery; content – action, violence, some sexual content, and teen partying (we’re betting that Taylor Lautner takes his shirt off a couple of dozen times).
  • Machine Gun Preacher – After finding God, an outlaw leaves his life behind and fights for the lives of Sudanese children (plus it has the best title of any film this year). Genre – Action, drama; content – violence, disturbing images, some drug use and sexuality.
  • Killer Elite – After his friend is captured, a retired member of Britain’s Elite Special Air Service goes on a killing spree. Genre – Action, thriller; content – strong violence, bad language, and nudity.
  • Dolphin Tale – A cheesy…I mean…heartwarming story of a boy who befriends a dolphin with no tale.  Genre – Drama, family; content – mild thematic elements (it does look like a touching film).
  1. Hey John, no making fun of dolphin love stories ok?
