Reviews by Scott Nehring

Scott NehringScott Nehring is a film critic whose reviews can be found on his site Good News Film Reviews.  His plain-talking movie reviews have also been seen on the websites for USAToday, Reuters, The Chicago Sun-Times, The India Times, and FoxNews along with numerous local television station websites.

Scott is also the author of the ground-breaking book You Are What You See: Watching Movies Through a Christian Lens. Visit the book's website  for more information.  In his book, Scott introduces readers to the power of story and affirms that educated, alert audiences are the key to both a healthy culture and improvement of the Arts.

Along with his popular film criticism, Scott is also a speaker, instructor, and screenwriter. For the past decade, Scott has focused on teaching Christians about film and culture. It is his belief that one of the biggest reasons for the gulf between American Christianity and modern culture is that Christians have unwisely abandoned Arts and artists. This shunning of the Arts has caused Christians to fall out of step with the culture and has too often left them ill-equipped to understand or criticize it in a productive fashion.

In his spare time Scott enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.  He also enjoys beekeeping and gardening.

Captain America Casts America in a Positive Light See more reviews by Scott Nehring

Kung Fu Panda 2 Comes Highly Recommended See more reviews by Scott Nehring
Po is one of the more likeable animated characters in recent years, and Jack Black should get most of the credit for this film's charm.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Wrecks the Franchise See more reviews by Scott Nehring
This film isn't just disappointingly bad, it is now a textbook example of how to wreck a franchise.
Thor Mixes Myth and Beefcake See more reviews by Scott Nehring
If you have a young boy in your life, you don't have much of a choice but to see THOR. Made for kids, it's tame enough for most audiences.

FORGIVEN is a really fancy home movie with costumes and predetermined dialog.
Soul Surfer Is Mostly Enjoyable See more reviews by Scott Nehring
Despite the flawed script, I found SOUL SURFER to be a mostly enjoyable, light film.

Quote For The Day
"Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before God made anything at all and is supreme over all creation. Christ is the one through whom God created everything in heaven and earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can't see-kings, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities. Everything has been created through him and for him. He existed before everything else began, and he holds all creation together."
- Colossians 1:15-17
