On Fire Movie Review (Opening in Theaters on September 29th!)

Do you like movies that keep you on the edge of your seat? I just watched On Fire, and I’m excited to share my movie review with you! 

Family running from wildfire in the movie on fire

  *Disclosure: This is a sponsored post done in partnership with On Fire. All opinions are 100% my own. 

While on the surface this exciting movie is about a family trying to escape a wildfire, it is also a story about love, courage and faith during a crisis.

Rated PG-13, it is a family friendly film – but I would caution against taking younger children as there are a few disturbing scenes (including a person catching on fire).

The Cast and Crew of On Fire

Due to the storyline, there is a limited main cast including Peter Facinelli as Dave Laughlin, Fiona Dourif as his pregnant wife Sarah Laughlin, and Asher Angel as their son Clay Laughlin.

Peter Facinelli (whom you may recognize as Dr. Cullen from the Twilight series) was SO good in this film!

Other cast members include Glenn Morshower as hardware store owner, Marv. You may recognize him from the TV show “The Resident” where he played the father of Dr. Conrad Hawkins.

Ashlei Foushee portrays Kayla and I thought she was so well cast as a newbie 911 operator who struggles with her emotions while keeping professional.

On Fire Storyline and Movie Review

The Laughlin family lives in a trailer home in the woods, and a forest fire breaks out. They make preparations “just in case”, however, they do not expect the fire to jump the gorge and get too close to home.

While Dave Laughlin is getting supplies in town, the fire begins to spread at a rapid pace. It then becomes a race for him to get to his family as roads are being shut down by emergency crews. Surviving despite the perils they encounter along the way keep the movie moving along at a fast pace.

Through out the film, the family must rely on each other for survival, support and encouragement. Additionally, this movie gives a glimpse into the world of fire fighters and emergency dispatch.

There are a few graphic scenes, but they are kept brief, and the movie moved along at a nice pace. I felt it was edited well, and there was no lagging in the story line. I would definitely watch this movie again, and it would be great for date night!

A few twists and turns help keep this movie interesting and draw you in to the story as it progresses.

This is a great movie for a wide span of ages – just keep in mind that there are a few scenes that would not be suitable for children (such as a person on fire). I highly recommend you watch the trailer of this suspenseful, gripping movie and then make plans to see it in theaters.

I love how the family bonds and works together throughout the movie, showing determination and hope are keys to overcoming a terrifying situation.

Camp Hideout Movie Review (Opening in Theaters on September 15th!)

Do you have fond memories of going to camp? I just finished viewing a wonderful film, and I’m so happy to share my Camp Hideout movie review with you! 

Camp Hideout Movie counselors  
*Disclosure: This is a sponsored post done in partnership with Camp Hideout. All opinions are 100% my own. 

I went to camp more than a few times growing up, and so I was thrilled to be able to watch Camp Hideout and take a trip down memory lane. While my camp adventures were much more tame than the antics in the movie, it was still so fun watch this film.

Some of the best parts were truly the actor’s faces in certain scenes – like in the image above!

From the very first scene, this movie will draw you in to the lives of the characters. Rated PG, it’s a movie the whole family will enjoy – no matter what their age!

The Cast and Crew of Camp Hideout

Stars include Christopher Lloyd as the camp owner, Ethan Drew as a troubled teen, and Corbin Bleu and Amanda Leighton as camp counselors. There were quite a few supporting characters, which kept the plot moving along at an engaging pace.

Sean Olson directed, edited and co-produced this engaging film, and casting was done by Roe Baker. I felt the film was well cast – including lead roles and supporting roles. The director put in some fun parts where Noah speaks to the film audience, but just enough to provide some light humor and interaction.

Camp Hideout Storyline and Movie Review

Noah (played by Ethan Drew) is a troubled teen who gets involved with some thugs and winds up stealing a top-secret device from them. He then hides out at a summer camp and shenanigans ensue! 

My Camp Hideout movie review would not be complete without mentioning Christopher Lloyd as Falco, the camp owner. He is so much fun to watch in this movie! There is an epic food fight battle, and when Falco shows up – the campers reaction is priceless.

While the antics provided great comedy, the underlying messages of the movie make it such a great family film. Noah learns to appreciate friendship and to trust the other campers to have his back when the goons show up. 

Falco and Jake give some sage advice to Noah, and it was heart-warming to watch him transform from angry loner to a teen with true friends.

This film is such a great film for the whole family to watch together, especially when it’s hard to find movies that will entertain such a large span of ages. Children, tweens, and teens will love the camping theme and plot line. Parents and grandparents will appreciate the core values of the movie. It’s such a fun, wholesome movie that will engage you the whole way!

The Hill Movie Review (Opening in Theaters on August 25th!)

Are you a fan of heart warming movies? I just finished watching The Hill, and I am thrilled to share my movie review with you! I really enjoyed this movie – it definitely has all the feels.

*Disclosure: This is a sponsored post done in partnership with The Hill. All opinions are 100% my own. 

Based on the true store of Rickey Hill who pursued his dream of playing pro baseball in spite of a degenerative spinal disease.

This movie delivers on so many levels. It will leave you with a sense of hope and the power of belief despite circumstances life has dealt. 

The Cast and Crew 

Starring Dennis Quaid, Colin Ford and Joelle Carter, this movie plays out in a laid back manner. This allows the viewer to connect with different characters as the story unfolds.

Supporting cast members include Bonnie Bedelia, Scott Glenn (superb in his portrayal of Red Murff) and Randy Houser. Additional cast include Jesse Berry, Mila Harris, Siena Bjournerud just to name a few.

This movie was well cast, and supporting characters added a much needed touch of humor. In addition, they adding substance to the overall movie plot and provided some great dialogue!

During the course of the movie, you will become immersed in the struggles of the characters and admire their grit and determination. 

Directed by Jeff Celentano and written by Angelo Pizzo, Scott Marshall Smith and Aric Hornig, they did an amazing job with the script.

The Hill Movie Review includes Cast members sitting in a doctors office

The Hill Movie Review and Synopsis

The Hill follows Rickey starting in his childhood, where a degenerative spinal disease has him wearing leg braces. His father (played aptly by Dennis Quaid) is a preacher, who is struggling to keep food on the table. 

In spite of their extreme poverty and his illness, Rickey dreams of playing baseball in the big leagues.

His siblings are his biggest supporters, while his dad wants to protect him from further damage to his frail body. Throughout the movie, themes of family, faith, and hope reverberate. 

Outspoken Gram (Bonnie Bedelia) shines in her scenes. A touch of humor is added by the character of Gracie in several appearances in the film. As the movie progresses, the family becomes more and more divided in their support of Rickey out of fear of further injuries.

This film is great for families, with life lessons on hope, overcoming obstacles and reaching for your dreams.
