This week’s Movie Monday family suggestion is Time Changer …
Russell Carlisle is a professor at Grace Bible Seminary in 1890. He’s also written a manuscript that he hopes to have endorsed by his colleagues and fellow board members at the seminary.
During a meeting regarding the endorsement, all of the board members heartily agree that Russell’s manuscript, titled “The Changing Times” is excellent and worthy of being endorsed. All agree, except one board member by the name of Dr. Anderson.
What ensues next is a disagreement between Russell and Dr. Anderson. The publisher’s deadline is approaching…will Russell receive the endorsement he needs in time? Can he exclude Dr. Anderson’s opinion and still receive the endorsement from the seminary?
Dr. Anderson has a valid reason for refusing to endorse Russell’s manuscript. Based on a secret journey he took in a time machine his father invented, Dr. Anderson has seen in the future and knows the ramifications Russell’s manuscript could have. But can he convince Russell of his error? Can Dr. Anderson convince Russell to take a trip over 100 years into to the future?
Time Changer is an excellent movie. It contains drama, humor, and leaves the viewer with some thoughts about our present world and its decline away from Christian values. There are many discussion points throughout including:
Why sharing the Truth about Jesus Christ is as important in 1890 as it is in the present;
How each action has a consequence;
Written works, films, and other media do have an impact on our society and culture, whether positive or negative; and,
How, even if everyone else disagrees with you and pressures you otherwise, it is important to take a stand for what’s right.
There is nothing objectionable in Time Changer. It is a well-written film with professional acting and a great lesson. I would highly recommend it for ages 8 and older.
