• Top 10 Most Popular and Best Easter Movies of All Time to Watch with Your Family

    Posted on March 25th, 2013 David Brooks | 2 comments

    Once again, we are preparing for the upcoming Easter holiday celebration. Easter, also known as the Pasch or Pascha, is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion at Calvary, as described in the New Testament. Easter is the culmination of the Passion of Christ, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. The last week of Lent is called Holy Week, and it contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday (also known as Holy Thursday), commemorating the Last Supper and its preceding foot washing, as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Easter is followed by a fifty-day period called Eastertide or the Easter Season, ending with Pentecost Sunday.  Hence, the most important significance of Easter is in fact its religious spirit. It honors the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. It is a time for families to get together for Easter Sunday dinner that may feature a ham as the most commonly served meat.

    Actually, during Easter holiday, there are various Easter jelly bean candies, chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and beautifully decorated Easter baskets filled with multi-colored to celebrate the holiday. However, the best way to understand the holiday spirit might be watching Easter movies, as the Easter-themed movies would be more efficient in delivering the holiday spirit into people’s hearts.  If you have no idea on which Easter movie to watch, here are some wonderful suggestions. Some of these choices focus on the cultural side of Easter while others will be religious epics. If you’re troubled by the video format issues while watching Easter movies with your family, you can make use of Leawo Total Media Converter Ultimate. It could help you convert your Easter movies to the format you want for your TV, DVD players or computer easily. Let’s take a look at these movies below:

    10. Jesus Christ Superstar (1973)

    Jesus Christ Superstar

    It is based on the famous Broadway musical by the stellar writing team of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Even though it is loosely referred to as a musical it’s actually a rock opera. There is no spoken dialogue. The film version features music that is truly powerful, emotional, and haunting. Ted Neeley stars as Jesus, Carl Anderson as Judas, and Yvonne Elliman as Mary Magdalene. This film is set in the last few weeks on the life of Jesus with its main focus on the conflicts between Jesus and Judas. There are many memorable songs most notably “I Don’t Know How to Love Him.”

    9. Amazing Grace (2006)

    Amazing Grace

    The central figure in Amazing Grace is William Wilberforce (1759-1833). He is played by Ioan Gruffudd as the zealous believer in God, human rights activist and British member of Parliament, who battled through discouragement and illness for two decades to end the slave trade in England. In a time of personal crisis, Wilberforce is inspired and encouraged in his long fight to abolish slavery by the former slave ship master, John Newton (Albert Finney), who wrote the beloved hymn “Amazing Grace” following his conversion to Christianity.

    8. Holiday Inn (1942)

    Holiday Inn

    Here is another musical film that not only features Easter as one of the holidays, but all the other ones too. It’s about a pair of former vaudeville performers who buy a rustic farmhouse in New England. They set it up as an inn only to be opened on the major holidays. Holiday Inn stars Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, two very legendary actors in their own right.

    7. The Gospel of John (2003)

    The Gospel of John

    The Gospel of John is the story of Jesus as told through the eyes of his disciple John. Starring Henry Ian Cusick as Jesus and narrated by Christopher Plummer, the film was originally released in theaters in 2003. It is rated PG. The film focuses on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, offering a very human, intimate picture of the passion and compassion of Christ’s three years of ministry. Christians will come away with an even greater appreciation for their Savior and the love that prompted his mission on earth.

    6. Jesus (1979)

    Jesus 1979

    Often times referred to as “The Jesus Film” it is a classic.  An Easter great as this is a movie that is popularly shown to non-believers by believers.  This movie is based primarily off of the book of Luke.  It is a journey of Jesus life that goes all the way through the miracle birth, to the crucifixion and resurrection.

    5. The Greatest Adventures of the Bible:  The Easter Story (2006)

    The Greatest Adventures of the Bible:  The Easter Story

    This is a story about some time traveling children who go back in time and are able to watch Bible stories take place before their very eyes.  This is one of their last journeys as they have now traveled to the point in time where they will see the Easter story unfold.

    4. Easter Parade (1948)

    Easter Parade

    Now for something lighter and more cheerful here is a musical starring Judy Garland and Fred Astaire with music by Irving Berlin. The story takes place when a famous dance team breaks up and the male lead needs a new partner right away. One is discovered immediately while as a chorus girl in a stage production. You will see plenty of extraordinary dancing from Astaire and hear phenomenal vocals by Garland. This is considered the ultimate Easter movie classic.

    3. Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991)

    Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey

    In this early-90s robot time-travel comedic gem, Bill and Ted must defeat the evil robot versions of themselves. The Easter Bunny appears in a hilarious scene where Bill and Ted confront the monsters from their personal hells.

    2. The First Easter Rabbit (1976)

    The First Easter Rabbit

    This animation movie is the story of the first Easter bunny. When a little girl tosses her stuffed bunny, the movie goes on telling the story of the animal going out in the world and officially becoming the first Easter rabbit.

    1. The Passion of the Christ (2004)

    The Passion of the Christ

    What makes this film stand out above all the others is it isn’t even in English. The entire dialogue is in the ancient languages of Aramaic, Latin and Hebrew. At least what you hear is what was actually spoken during those biblical times. Yet again this film, before and after its release, was extremely controversial on many levels, most notably the violence. The passion is based on the events and suffering from the New Testament accounts of Jesus’ arrest, trial, torture, crucifixion and resurrection. It was directed by Mel Gibson and starred Jim Caviezel as Jesus. The Passion of the Christ is still the most successful non-English language film ever at the box office.

  • Nokia released Lumia 900 in New York on the Times Square Event as 2012 Easter Sunday gift

    Posted on April 9th, 2012 David Brooks | 5 comments

    On Easter Sunday, Nokia has finally brought out the long anticipated new samrthone Lumia 900 on the Times Square Event in New York. Just before the release event of Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia promised that it would bring “a live performance with special guest”. No, we all know the special guest is the musical super star Nicki Minaj, who delivered an amazing audio visual experience in Times Square that brought New York City to a standstill. The Nokia Lumia 900 is really an amazing smartphone, which is available in three colors: black, cyan and glossary white, at only $99.99 from AT&T with a new two-year contract (Amazon cuts down that price to $20 or $50 depending on where you are with AT&T). It represents a number of firsts: it is the first high-end Windows Phone from Nokia to arrive in the U.S., it is the first 4G LTE smartphone from Nokia, and it is one of the first 4G LTE Windows Phones on the market.

    With the release event, let’s take a look at the Nokia Lumia 900 performance. Just like its precede Nokia Lumia 800, the Lumia 900 comes with stunning industrial design, great build quality, and a fantastic ClearBlack AMOLED display, great network performance, solid battery life, and a fast and fluid user interface due to Windows Phone 7.5. But of course, there are also some shortcomings of this new smartphone, like its weak performance in camera and shortage of apps to compete with its counterparts.

    Nokia Lumia 900The 4.3 inch Lumia 900 sports a ClearBlack AMOLED display with WVGA (480×800 pixels) screen resolution that features tremendous viewing angles, inky deep blacks, and punchy colors. The screen resolution may make it less wonderful to watch HD videos on Lumia 900, compared to its counterpart devices like 720P Android smartphones and Retina display smartphones. But with its large screen display, it still provides excellent experience for HD movie lovers for unlimited movie enjoyment on the go.

    The Lumia 900 is powered by the 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm processor and 512MB of RAM, just as the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 smartphones. The processor has no trouble pushing around the Windows Phone 7.5 Metro interface. Still, the fast and fluid interface is a joy to navigate and provides a very different experience than other smartphone platforms. Windows Phone 7.5 introduced a few new features to make it easier to navigate a long list of apps, but I feel that the app list could benefit from some sort of folder organization system, especially when there are a lot of apps installed on the phone.

    The back of the 900 features an 8 megapixel camera and LED flashlight. The eight megapixel camera, plus with wide-angle 28mm, f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens, looks fantastic, but in practice it doesn’t live up to the hype. The Lumia 900 supports to record 720p video, which is better though with continuous autofocus while filming, sharp and good framerate, while compared to other phones on the market that are shooting 1080p clips. Also, it includes a 1MP front camera, which could be used for video chatting. But the image effect is really not that good.

    As to the apps available for Lumia 900, Nokia includes its ESPN and App Highlights apps into Lumia 900. You can also get a lot of AT&T services as well. Users could choose to install or uninstall apps available from the Windows Phone Marketplace, which has grown tremendously to over 70,000 apps by now. Of course, there are still a lot of apps missing in Lumia 900.

    The battery life also is an important element for a smartphone. The 1830mAh Nokia Lumia 900’s internal battery is not replaceable by users, but easily cruises through a full day of hard usage even on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. Nokia says the Lumia 900 is rated for 7 hours of talk time, but is really an “all-day” battery.

  • Top 6 Religious Easter DVD Movies for Kids and Families

    Posted on April 18th, 2011 David Brooks | 4 comments

    As one of the most important holidays, Easter is the central feast in the Christian liturgical year when Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. People typically celebrate this resurrection on Easter Day or Easter Sunday (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday), two days after Good Friday and three days after Maundy Thursday. This year, Easter Sunday falls on April 24.

    Happy Easter 2011

    There are many ways for you to celebrate Easter Sunday, like playing Easter Eggs Game, Easter Bunny Games, making Easter gifts for your friends, etc. As well, watching Easter movies is another popular way to celebrate the holiday. And if you have children, Easter Sunday would be the right holiday for you to teach your children the true meaning of Easter Sunday by watching animated Easter movies. Here I have listed some most popular religious DVD movies for you to watch with your children and your family at home.

    1. The Greatest Adventures of the Bible: Easter Story (DVD)

    The Greatest Adventure: Stories from the Bible is a direct-to-video series produced by Hanna-Barbera that tells of three young adventurers—Derek, Margo, and ‘their nomad friend’ Moki—who travel back in time to watch biblical events take place first-hand. It presents animated, family-oriented tales from the Bible, with this installment covering the story of Easter.


    2. The Greatest Story Ever Told (DVD)

    The Greatest Story Ever Told is a 1965 American epic film produced and directed by George Stevens and distributed by United Artists. It is a retelling of the story of Jesus Christ, from the Nativity through the Resurrection. This film is notable for being the last film appearance of Claude Rains.


    3. The Gospel of John

    The Gospel According to John, commonly referred to as the Gospel of John or simply John, is an account of the public ministry of Jesus. It begins with the witness and affirmation by John the Baptist and concludes with the death, burial, Resurrection, and post-Resurrection appearances of Jesus. This account is fourth of the canonical gospels, after the synoptics Matthew, Mark and Luke.


    4. The Passion of the Christ

    The Passion of the Christ largely covers the final twelve hours of Jesus’ life beginning with the Agony in the Garden and ending with a brief depiction of his Resurrection. Flashbacks of Jesus as a Child, when Jesus worked as a carpenter, the Sermon on the Mount, the saving of Mary Magdalene from being stoned to death, and the Last Supper are also included.


    5. Easter Promise/The Witness (DVD) (1996)

    Easter Promise: Jerem dreams of being a soldier for a king. He is thrilled to hear about the upcoming arrival of the true King Jesus, but he is deceived and rejects Jesus along with many others. Jerem learns about the truth and ultimately trusts in Jesus and is able to witness the fulfillment of prophecy — the resurrection. Witness: Barabbas doubts Jesus Christ’s divinity, but he is soon unable to deny that Jesus was no ordinary man.  


    6. The Ten Commandments – 50th Anniversary Collection (DVD) (1923/1956)

    The Ten Commandments is a 1956 American epic film that dramatized the biblical story of Exodus, in which the Jewish-born Moses, an adopted Egyptian prince, turned deliverer of the Hebrew slaves. While not directly about Easter, this movie is appropriate for the time of year because of Passover. This classic rendition of The Ten Commandments tells the story of Moses and his people. 

    All these top 6 religious Easter movies are popular all time for kids and family. If you want to watch these DVD movies on other media players like iPad 2, iPhone, HTC Sensation 4G, etc. you can use Leawo DVD Ripper or Leawo DVD Ripper for Mac to rip Easter DVDs to videos for convenient DVD playback. And if you want to backup these DVD movies on hard disk for future review, then you can use Leawo DVD Copy or Leawo DVD Copy for Mac to backup them.
