Seriously, what's the story with these?
Just my way of preserving memories, I guess.
You should try scrapbooking. It seems more prudent.

Christian film made for Hollywood, not the other way around.
This film was heavily hyped in the Faith Based community by email
campaign and advertising on many web sites. I didn't want to leave an
early review, as I didn't want to dissuade people from it, but I have
to be frank; this film doesn't help much of anyone. It doesn't even hit
the self-proclaimed target of being honest about marriage problems very
well. It claims to be the 'best film about Marriage since Fireproof';
no way! There is far more to making a marriage work than just physical
fidelity. There are better relatively low- budget faith-based films
about marriage (albeit not theatrical releases) right now:
RedeemedGrace Abounds and The War Within just to name two. The former
of the two deals honestly with real fidelity, and the latter with
emotional fidelity. If you want to know how to fix a marriage, watch
one of them! I really don't believe that was the film's true intent; I
think it was an attempt at making a Christian film that Hollywood would
embrace; if so, it had to fail. Hollywood could not help but ignore it;
they already do sleaze betterso it's not 'cool enough' for them. The
Faith- based community can't love it either; it's based loosely on the
life of nobody's hero; Solomon. So what are we left with? An updated
story about someone we don't (or shouldn't) even want to know. I can't
blame the actors; to play a proud pompous jerk, you have to become one.
