At first listen to the chart topping (Top 5) Billboard Hot Gospel Songs radio hit and title track “My Heart Says Yes” one might say Troy Sneed has reinvented his traditional praise & worship sound from past radio hits such as “Hallelujah” and “Work It Out” to a milder, more contemporary collection of intimate acoustic performances. However, the melodies on Sneed’s new release are simply the results of this singer, songwriter, musician and GRAMMY nominated producer giving God and the world the best he has to offer. With an extraordinarily pitch perfect falsetto, compared to Maxwell and Robin Thicke by gospel radio programmers nationwide, Troy has created ear candy

Dreamer: Inspired By A True Story
STREET DATE: 05/10/2011 RUN TIME: 106 MIN RATING: PG FILE UNDER: VHGNXX GENRE: Family PKG: AMARAY
DVD OVERVIEW: A man and his young daughter face almost impossible odds as they struggle to help an injured horse return to the racetrack in this family-friendly drama. Ben Crane (Kurt Russell) is a horse trainer whose career has gone into a bit of a slump, and after years as his own boss, he's signed on to work for Palmer (David Morse), a breeder whose wealth and success has given him a certain degree of arrogance. While Ben has learned to keep his mouth shut around his boss, he forgets himself when one of his favorite horses, Sonador, breaks its leg during an important race. Palmer insists that the horse should be put down on the spot, but Ben doesn't have the heart to kill the animal, especially since his young daughter, Cale (Dakota Fanning), is in the stands watching. Ben and Palmer have harsh words with one another, and Ben is fired, but is allowed to take Sonador with him when he leaves. Ben has a hard time convincing anyone that the injured horse has any potential, especially his father, Pop (Kris Kristofferson), a fellow trainer who rarely sees eye to eye with his son. But Cale loves the horse, and Ben believes that Sonador can make a comeback with the right care, and together with stable men Balon (Luis Guzman) and Manolin (Freddy Rodriguez), he sets out to put the filly on the road to recovery. As its subtitle suggests, Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story was based on the story of Mariah's Storm, a filly who broke a leg during a race in 1993, but a year later came back to win the Arlington Heights Oaks, and in 1995 won the Turfway Breeder's Cup.

The story of an intelligent, heroic collie and his young owner, previously featured in numerous films and a successful 1950s television series, was updated for the 1990s in this family feature. This time, Lassie is determined to help a cynical city boy named Matt (Thomas Guiry), who turns even more resentful when his family relocates to a small town in rural Virginia. Soon after this move, a bright collie enters the family's life and winds up with the name Lassie because of the television show, which Matt's younger sister (Brittany Boyd) watches passionately. Lassie sets out to cheer Matt up and introduce him to the wonders of nature, while also helping the family stand its ground against rich, unpleasant neighbors. There are also run-ins with vicious wild animals and a daring rescue over river rapids, but the main focus remains on the emotional relationship between Matt and the dog, a story that will seem old-fashioned and charming to some viewers while familiar and sentimental to others.

DVD OVERVIEW: Based on the true experiences of Lt. Colonel Michael Strobl, who wrote eloquently of them in a widely circulated 2004 article, Taking Chance is a profoundly emotional look at the military rituals taken to honor its war dead, as represented by a fallen Marine killed in Iraq, Lance Corporal Chance Phelps. Working as a strategic analyst at Marine Corps Base Quantico in VA, Lt. Col. Strobl (Kevin Bacon) learns that Phelps had once lived in his hometown, and volunteers to escort the body to its final resting place in Wyoming. As Strobl journeys across America, he discovers the great diligence and dignity in how the military, and all those involved with preparing and transporting the body, handle their duties. Equally important, he encounters hundreds of people affected by Chances death, a vast majority of whom never knew him. This collective grieving eventually causes Lt. Col. Strobl, a veteran of Desert Storm now assigned to office duty, to probe his own guilt about not re-deploying to Iraq for the current conflict. Arriving in Wyoming, Lt. Col. Strobl completes his catharsis when he encounters Chances gracious family and friends, and discovers an extraordinary outpouring of community support.
KEY SELLING POINTS:
“Although this is a meticulous, deliberate, wellpaced movie, it grips the audience’s attention at all times. There are many moments that elicit tears, patriotism, and fears. TAKING CHANCE is a deeply psychological drama that eventually comes down on the side of God and country. In fact, throughout the movie, there are deliberate signs of faith, from the airline attendant who blesses Mike and gives him a cross, to distinct mentions of prayer, courage, valor, and Heaven. Yet TAKING CHANCE is not an evangelistic movie. Nor does it fit a typical generic formulation or classification. It is really a journey of the soul that we recommend everyone should take.” – Movieguide
