The Oscars 2017


The Oscars are just around a few days away.

Here is a list of the movies that are up for awards (in one category or another) that Shepherd Project Ministries has reviewed. EACH of these will give you a general idea of the storyline, and, more importantly, will show you ways to connect the movie to the Christian faith. Most include questions you can use to prompt discussion. They can encourage you in your own faith, as well as help you use the culture around you to bring others to discussions about faith. I hope you will read them, use them, and pass this list on to others. You never know how God might you, this list, and Hollywood to bring someone to Himself!

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (and a few more thoughts on 13 Hours)



Deepwater Horizon

Doctor Strange

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Florence Foster Jenkins

Hidden Figures

The Jungle Book

Kubo and the Two Strings

La La Land (and a few thoughts on the ending)




Rogue One: A Star Wars Story


Star Trek Beyond

Also, just FYI – we have a pretty decent collection of quotes from each movie as well. (Links to the quotes are on each review/discussion.

Note, this is not a comprehensive list of movies up for awards. I chose not to see a few movies due to content. A few others I simply was not able to see due to timing.
