Upside DVD Review + Giveaway

This post is not meant to cause any controversy(so please don't take it that way), it just includes some of my personal opinions-everyone is entitled to their own.

There are many people out there searching for something and they just aren't sure what. If I ever feel lost(and even when I don't), I turn to my faith. I know I can feel comfort in believing what I do.

Upside is a christian DVD that was released October 5, 2010.

Synopsis:
From the looks of things, Solomon White has a well-mapped future. Finish his senior year of high school, select an elite university, continue his lacrosse career, and reap the rewards of success on whichever road life takes him.

But a devastating hit on the lacrosse field leaves his world literally turned upside down. Will he be able to gain the perspective needed to face his new reality?

UPSIDE provides a fresh look at life through the eyes of Soli (Randall Bentley, "Heroes"), a young athlete struggling to discover where he's headed, both figuratively and literally. Viewing the world upside down is a challenge few will ever face, but that hardly is the extent of Soli's pressing concerns.

He has trouble at home with his mom, he's trying to end his relationship with his girlfriend, and he has to come to grips with a teacher that thinks he can be much more than he wants to be. Suddenly, Soli's senior year looking nothing like he imagined it would be.

Add in Wren (Leah Sims), an unlikely love interest with a strong faith in God, and Soli must take a new look at everything he believes in.

Can Soli win the heart of Wren, who happens to be blind? Can he believe in something he can't see? Will he find a new direction for his life, even if his eyesight never returns to normal?

When you can't trust your eyes, you still have your voice. This unique story is an inspiring reminder that when life gets you down, there's always an UPSIDE.




I always enjoy watching movies with lessons that I sometimes need to be reminded about. I'm sure that different people will take different things away from this movie, but personally, the movie reminds me that sometimes God will put us through hard times in order to better ourselves or someone else.

In this movie Soli must overcome some amazing obstacles but comes out on the other side a better person. It may not have been clear to him at the time, but he did find many good things through the hardship that he had to endure.

I think this is a great movie that highlights love, friendship, hardship, faith and more.  I would recommend it to anyone and I have let many friends and family borrow it to watch. They all agree that it is a great movie. Visit Upside to learn more.

I just wanted to say, WOW, the trailer looks great! I know that I've had trying times in my life, and I'm not sure I can pinpoint the silver lining sometimes, but I do know that I'm still here and very blessed to be. There's at least a silver lining in that.

I am going through a time in my life right now that has me turning to my Saviour more and more. I know he is there. God is good all the time. All the time God is good. We don't know why we have the things happen to us that we do. We just have to have faith that God does NOT make mistakes.

Thanks for this giveaway.

My husband and I went through a really trying time a couple of years ago where we were really struggling. God showed his faithfulness and provided for us. He then provided 3 huge blessings within 4 days:) We can now look back and see how the trials led to His wonderful plan for us.

I have, Im pretty sure most people come through and perservere thru lifes' challenges.

Karen said...

Yes, I am pretty sure most of us have been through some tough times, and the silver lining isn't always noticeable right away. Sometimes it's only when we reflect on the situation that we see it.

I did have a time when I nearly died from an allergic reaction to anesthesia after having my sixth baby. My faith is what sustained me; I did have a few very dark hours, but God was faithful to bring me out of that so that I could truely rejoice in life.
