Hi, all. Just wanted to post this information for all to see. My family and I will be viewing this movie on April 20 in Apena, MI. There are showings all over. The movie is about the beginning of the Revolutionary war, and I understand it was made by homeschoolers. Here is the link:

Can't we all just agree to disagree in a civil fashion while the planet's last, fading hope of liberty and prosperity gets snuffed out?

No. We can't.

For the Florida people , there is a showing tomorrow in Clermont, Just outside orlando.
I think The wife and I will attend.
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

I should post up about the movie, having seen it.

Spoiler Alert!!!!


Spoiler alert!





The movie was fine. It's connection to the history that we all know and love was merely part of the setting.
The movie turned out to be a love story. Both of the love of the protagonist for the leading lady (and she for him), as well as Christ's love for humanity. It was a story of mistakes, forgiveness and redemption. There were some interesting effects, some "steam-punk" looking evil guy contraptions and hide-outs, lots of explosions with ninja fighting thrown in for good measure. There was also a conspiracy (which is at least partly true) about the East India Company as the military industrial complex component. Don't get me wrong, it was enjoyable enough. Just not what I had hoped for. Certainly waaaay less inaccurate than "Sons of Liberty". I think it's also worth supporting (voluntarily) local film production.
