(please keep in mind that my vote pertains to the dramatic presentationof the movie, and not my feelings about the book)I was lucky to see a sneak preview of this movie in Kansas City. It'sbased off of the books by Neale Donald Walsch about a different way oflooking at life, god, love, and religion. It was professionallyproduced by Stephen Simon, the same man who produced Bill & Ted'sExcellent Adventure, What Dreams May Come, and a few others about whichI was less familiar. There were probably five-hundred people there atthe sneak preview - I was impressed.Good Movie! The acting and production were all well-done. Thepresentation of a spirituality inspired by an experience Neale hadafter some real down points in his life (including being homeless forabout a year) was engaging and succinct, yet not too pushy (gentlenessbeing at the core of his beliefs anyway).I say see it. If you disagree on a religious/spiritual level, then atleast it will be a way for you to confirm the beliefs you hold and whyyou hold them. If you find something to agree with in the movie, thenperhaps it has something for you and perhaps the books (Conversationswith God, Communion with God, Home with God - etc) will be a helpfultool for you. They were for me.And finally, after the movie both Neale Walsch and Stephen Simon spoke.Both were very kind and fielded questions from the audience. Their onlyrequest was that when the movie opens on a National Level (and it willhere in the next few weeks I believe), that anyone inspired or affectedby the films/books do their best to inform their friends and neighbors,enemies and strangers to see the movie, and send a message in the onlymedia Hollywood understands, the message of money, stating clearly thatwe as a people are tired of being fed the same formula of Sex,Violence, Fear, and Hate and wish to be shown more films about theimportance of compassion and love.Thanks for reading.
This movie gives you a wonderful insight into the real world feelings happening today. It is a very heart felt movie and I recommend all to see.
Though I am very much into this genre of books, those by Millman, Bach, Redfield and so on, I've always had a hard time really taking in conversations with God. I mean, where did this guy come from, where does he get off suggesting that one morning or day, God decides to just start talking to him. How am I suppose to swallow the idea of just some regular joe, being special enough or deserving enough to get to have this conversation with God. So in that alone, as great as so much of the messages are within the pages of these books, I have never been able to entirely accept them. Then along comes this movie. Tells an amazing story of a man who literally bottoms out in life. Who reaches a point that those of us who have/had the money to buy this book, pray to god to never reach. We get to see a man ready for good reason to just thrown in the towel and give up on life, finally hear a voice and tell him to get up. And from that experience comes a pouring out of words creating the book conversations with God. You know what I did when the movie ended? I went to my book shelf, pulled out Book 1 and started reading it again, with a whole new perspective on where these words came from. If you are a conversations with God fan, you must see this movie!!
Proving the so-called spiritual genre still has an awfully long way togo before feeling half has meaningful as underlying content wouldsuggest, this quest for meaning and purpose remains ironically dull forit's intended purpose. Rather then adapting Neale Donald Walsch'smassively successful spiritual dialogs, the film version ofConversations with God plays more like a biography, detailing thecatalyst behind this reluctant author's unique journey which saw himliving on the streets to becoming an international bestseller.In a film plagued with bad choices, choosing to go the docudrama routeproves one of the only wise decisions, producing a few of theLifetime-worthy affair's only authentic and moving sequences. It is atestament to the inept direction then, when any and all emotionalsincerity takes place during the initial struggling and unanimouslysubsides when relaying the inspirational turn of events that will failto inspire the viewer. Proving quite contradictory indeed, the moreConversations with God presses on the book's inspirational themes oflove, surrender, and other random insights, the less impact anypreviously watched glimmer of truth seems to reap.There is just a massive divide between parlaying this intenselypersonal information in a way that does not feel trite, even laughablycondescending, to all but the most ardent of sheep-fans... Meaning,until dedicated efforts into this budding genre begin translating ourinner spiritual discussions more believably by refining theirtechniques into many more subtle shades of consciousness, they willcontinue to bare the new-age brunt of jokes, contradict what they soearnestly try to capture, and give moviegoers every which reason toextract spiritual qualities from other genres that unconsciouslyproduce this sentiment so much clearer, with a lot less strain. For thefew heartfelt moments that detail Walsch's struggle with homelessness,the film rises above the emotional sterile, Hallmark-prone manipulationthat the majority seems to be. However, anyone who is not alreadybegging to enjoy this movie, having been a rabid fan of the author'swork, has every right to leer in cynical jest at the film'sunintentionally ironic tone of detached insincerity.

I would describe it as inspiring, visionary andcompassionate. Filmed in beautiful Ashland, Oregon. Directed by StephenSimon (Somewhere in Time & What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams).Incredible writing. Beautiful filming. Henry Czerny gives a "riveting"performance. My daughter & I drove from the Bay area (SF was sold out) to attend thesneak preview in LA at The Agape Center (amazing place). I also sent myGrand Mama (age 93!) the 4th book in the series "At Home With God". Mybrother took her to the premier in Portland, and Neale signed her book!After seeing the movie I decided to start reading the original 3 bookseries, which is quite deep and relative to what's happening in theworld TODAY, especially Book 2. How did Neale know the path we wereheaded down of "the haves and the have nots"? The point is not whetherhe actually had a "conversation with God". You'll see. If you LOVE GREAT movies, watch them, act in them, cast, produce ordirect them, you should also check out www.spiritualcinemacircle.com. Ithink you can get a free intro DVD (with 4 films). The movies are NOTreligious, but they ARE amazing. This is actually how we discoveredConversations with God. Check out www.cwgthemovie.com and go see themovie for your SELF.
I saw a preview of this movie on Oct 22nd and very much enjoyed it.Except for the main character's fake beard which I also founddistracting (see someone else's post on this), this was a good,thought-provoking film. The overall theme should resonate with peoplewho feel there's more to our existence and for that matter, what Godis, than what we've been taught to believe in church. Probably not amovie for the extreme religious zealots out there or atheists either.But, this is not some sort of exploitative, religious flick. You won'tbe hit over the head with a holier-than-thou guilt trip. And I'm notsure this or any other movie can change anyone's life either, as somemay suggest. It is inspirational, though.I've never read the books, but the author truly believes what happenedto him and the movie simply chronicles his story. This sort of movie isa good way of sharing such a story with lots of others and hopefullythis one was not produced just to pocket more profits. I hope it is well-received and stays at the theaters for a long run.
This review is from: Conversations With God (DVD) It's beautiful! Love it!I love the books and this is great to be able to watch Neil and simply applied the words he received
This review is from: Conversations With God (DVD) I have shared this with my sons & best friends. We all have had tremendous insights into the happenings in OUR life!!
This review is from: Conversations With God (DVD) Conversations With God is a good movie for individuals whom still have the open minds they were born with. I totally believe in this movie and I'm going to order books based on this film. If your a person stuck in one book or captured by a religious organization, then this spiritual movie may not fit into your way of thinking. I thirst for information of this type, because I know God exist for a fact, and known all the while that all life comes from the creator. Spiritual gifts are happening all around us, just as they happened to this guy, but because of unseen people we don't get to see or enjoy them, we're only shown the bad news, so it can purpetuate corruption in society. If this film was viewed with the open mind we were born with, the world would be a better place.
I was surprized looking through all the other reviews that there was not one review written from a christian (Bible believing) viewpoint. I watched this video, and listened carfully to the conversations he had with God. Although at times the conversations appear to be in-line with what you would read in the Bible (the most read book of all time), much of the conversation was in direct opposition to the ideas and theology given in the Bible. I did enjoy the story line of someone overcoming adversity. I wanted to warn people out there that if you are a Bible believing Christian, you may be offended by this movie because it does not align with the Bible on some points; it comes across as what I would term new-age. I would suggest that if you want to have your own personal 'conversation with God', get yourself a copy of the bible - any version - and read it.
Warning: this film is for the growing numbers of movie goers who are dead tired of the murder, mayhem and idiocy that passes for popular entertainment. If you're just another "action film addict" this reflective, candid bio of the best selling author is not for you. But if you ever wonder what your life's about - or where you're heading - then don't miss it! True, it won't have you at the edge of your seat or offer any cheap thrills. Yet, for those willing to consider a God force more gentle and peaceful than the neo-christian version currently running our country, the central character here may inspire you to start listening to your own inner voice.
I was disappointed with the movie quite a bit.... I was expecting the movie to involve more of the content, depth, emotion of the books rather than just be a movie about his life while he was writing the books. Almost seems like a marketing piece for the book. It unfortunately seems to fit quite well with pyramid schemes, and those online marketer types who have secrets of making money online only to never have any legitimate business other than teaching other people how to make money online. Absolutely nothing against Mr. Walsch OR the books. The movie just felt very much lacking.For a spiritually enlightening movie, I would recommend 'Peaceful Warrior' instead.Or just read the books.
This DVD was inspiring! Just a little disjointed but the over all message and feeling was beautiful. I am savoring the book with each chapter. Our God IS an AWESOME God. We all may not hear Him talk as clearly as Neale Donald Walsch did. But He does speak to each of us. He did in leading me to this DVD & book.
I enjoyed the books in the series so I was excited when I saw the video and ordered it immediately. The video basically recounted how Neale Donald Walsch hit rock bottom and pulled himself back up out of dispair and being a homeless person to someone with a bestselling book and financial freedom. The video was done in a series of flashbacks that were irritating after awhile. I was disappointed that the scenes with Walsh giving talks, he appeared facetious and extremely self serving in his lectures. I would never have bought the video if I had been able to rent and watch the video. It is not one that I would have especially wanted in my collection.
This movie was disappointing in the sense that it was more about theguy's life experiences (and struggles) while writing his book thanactually anything about the book itself. Seems like a PR stunt to me. Iwas expecting something that would at least go into the content of thebook, maybe go into what he was feeling and experiencing. But thenagain it seems like he was more of just a 'medium' for this spiritualwritings rather than actually having experienced anything spiritualworth showing/portraying. The movie makes what he ended up producingout of all of it somewhat of a side note, not particularly significantto the storyline. The Celestine Prophecy movie seemed more interestingthan this, and that thing was really shallow/clichÃ© in itself.
Way too "sweet". I expected much more dialogues and philosophical conversations, but it turned to be quite kitsch, with lots of violins in the background.If I thought of reading the book, the movie totally discouraged me to do it.
I found myself on a very spiritual journey that I felt I deeply connected to. I am not sure what else to say other than, WOW!This is not a fast film. You have to be interested in the bigger picture to enjoy this. You will also need to be open-minded or it will carry no impact. I will own a copy of this DVD as well as the book. It was superb and it's philosophy should be cherished, learned and applied.
This review is from: Conversations With God (DVD) I would have not known about this video had it not been referred to me by a friend. It's a great enriching story, a video for the entire family to enjoy together. It's one that I'll view over and over. I highly recommend it. Don't hesitate in purchasing this video! You'll recommend it to your friends and family also.
The difference between this movie and other spiritual films (The Secret, What the Bleep, Celestine Prophecy) is that this movie shows you how to be, what to do, and how to get to god. It demands that the spiritual walk is one of compassion and human commitment, and not one of manifesting a million dollars overnight or learning how to heal plants or move atoms with your mind. This very human message will come as a disappointment for some who are looking for a get-spiritual-quick scheme from this movie. This is not a film about spiritual giftedness, it is a film about walking your very human walk, dealing with the opportunities for compassion that we pass on our way to work every morning, and learning that every moment is an opporunity to live your own conversation with god.
This review is from: Conversations With God [DVD] (DVD) This film was very touching and so real. I wish everyone would watch this film.We the people have to remember to stay humble in life.I feel this film really said a lot about how this world has become.
