Depeche Mode – Spirits In The Forest Movie Documentary 2019 Review

depeche mode

A Facebook friend posted this review on his timeline. I hope he doesn’t mind me sharing.

I really liked the beautiful, moving and powerful stories shared by these 6 fans that were chosen to be featured in this movie… But… There are some things in this film i would have liked to have seen.

1. I would have liked to have seen the members of DM interact with the 6 fans. They didn’t once and that was a real disconnect for me. They really should have had at least shot some private footage with Dave or Martin interacting with or at least commenting on their stories. Maybe a large dinner scene with everyone there talking.

2. I like Anton Corbijn as a music video director but not so much as a feature documentary director. I felt the flow and the storytelling could have been a lot more detailed and tighter. I feel some of the stories being told left the audience feeling unresolved by the end.

Top snacks for movie night at home

26Article by NFR Film.

Sometimes a movie night is a perfect way to enjoy a cold night. And anytime you sit down to watch movies, snacks are essential. Sadly, store bought movie friendly snacks tend to be high in sugar and preservatives. One of the best ways to avoid these is to consider making movie snacks and drinks at home. Here are a few ideas that you can easily throw together. You don’t even need to leave your home; just order anything you’re missing from an online shopping portal:

Roasted almonds

It does not get easier than roasting your own almonds. Some of the best online shopping deals have almonds going cheap. Buy raw almonds and then roast them yourself and add whatever flavors and spices you like. This is cheap, easy and requires very little prep.


Another snack that is to put together. Buy corn chips in bulk and avoid the big brands that have all sorts of other ingredients thrown in. Add some cheese, salsa, and jalapenos and you have one of the most popular movie snacks.


This takes a little more work but packs a bit more punch than the normal snacks. Once the hummus is made just pair it with either corn chips, pita bread or crackers. For a healthier alternative, use fresh raw vegetables like carrot and celery.

Chicken nuggets

There are a couple of choices here. There are frozen nuggets which can be fried at home or you can make your own. Although making it yourself it harder, they are much healthier and can be tastier. There are hundreds of recipe online for homemade nuggets.

Herb Kimble discusses The Importance of an Executive Producer

Director BAZ LUHRMANN on the set of Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ drama “THE GREAT GATSBY,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Article submitted by Herb Kimble.

An executive producer can be generally described as a professional who supervises the making of a commercial entertainment product, and oversees producers during the production process. There are three main areas that executive producers will work in: television, movies, and music. This article will dive into these three areas and how they differ from one another.


Executive producers will often supervise the financial and creative aspects of the production. They may be the writer or creator of a series as well as partaking in other activities as well. Generally, they are in charge of anything related to the production of the television show such as planning, or approving publicity and managing promotional campaigns.


An executive producer works with the movie studio to ensure that a film is completed within budget and most importantly, on time. They often work with producers and the production company to secure distribution while reviewing the proposed advertising campaign for the film. These producers will find the material for a movie, secure financing, and get a script written. They will also help in finding a director, cinematographer, actors, and a production team.


While television and movie executive producers are generally involved with the business side of the production, music producers often find themselves participating more on the creative end. The music executive producer is more like a producer and director all-in-one, and will help the recording artist fine tune their performance. Unless the producer is working with a major label, he or she will often leave the deal making and the administrative tasks to the music agents.

Bio: Herb Kimble is based out of Los Angeles, Ca, where he co-founded CineFocus Productions. Herb Kimble’s previous experience as an entrepreneur in sales and marketing, and an accomplished young actor, have given him a passion for film and television production.

Anthony Nelson and the Overcomers New Album: Worship: In Spirit and In Truth

A brand new album from Anthony Nelson and the Overcomers is on its way. Entitled Worship: In Spirit and In Truth, the album is Nelson’s way of overcoming the often repetitive structure of Gospel music.

Worship: In Spirit and In Truth is built around the group’s #1 Billboard Gospel song: Deeper. There’s a lot to love here for fans of any genre, with a cohesive blend of the band’s signature sound – a mixture of soul, folk (acoustic) and R&B.  Sonically, listeners will be pleased with the diversity and uniqueness in sound, song structure, melody, etc.  Lyrically, and musically, this EP conquers the often repetitious nature accompanying worship music with words that challenge listeners to truly explore the meaning of worshipping God in spirit and truth.

Nelson comes from a place many can relate to. He’s an environmental engineer by trade, but the loss of his parents forced him to confront his relationship with God. This struggle was ultimately very personal: “Everyone deals with grief differently.  For me, as a somewhat introverted person, I sort of drifted away from church and became withdrawn.” Nelson didn’t hold grudges or feel sorry for himself, instead, he focused his energy toward the good he could do with his life. “Playing and composing music became very healthy outlets to deal with the mental and spiritual pain.  Eventually, God led me back to church, where I became a minister of music and worship leader.”

Nelson chose family to form the Overcomers. There can be a lot of drama and challenges when creating a band. When the ultimate goal is the message, the best way to wipe all that out, says Nelson, is by falling back on the loving arms of family. The Overcomers are Melini Redditt, Lynn Burnett, Shalandra “Dee” Irvin and Michael Burnett, and from the way Anthony tells it they are a group special to his heart and to his process. “Oftentimes, with groups of any genre, there is typically some chaos [but] I find that working with family members is much easier.” When Nelson started delving deeper into his music and exploring that part of himself, and that connection with his spiritual side, he turned to God for guidance. “God influenced my decision.  He just laid it on my heart who to choose for the group and it has worked out beautifully.”

For Nelson, this upcoming album is as personal as all of his work. His process is very solitary, feeling the urge to explore more than just words. His music is often called “visual” for the impactful lyrics, usage of metaphors and imagery to build on his ideas. “Songwriting is such an introspective process for me.  Sometimes, I go to my music room late at night; sometimes I go to a bench in the park or to a beach.  And, it is those different places and observations of nature and people that help me to write from different perspectives (i.e., first person, third person) and with various imagery.”

The forthcoming Worship: In Spirit and In Truth is due out February 9th, 2018.

Suicide Should Not Be The Answer

That Voice. Chester Bennington, you also left us way too soon Man.

Suicide is a Permanent Solution to a Temporary Problem.

I know, it’s our creative side Man. Its also bad brain chemistry (most times treatable) with meds and weekly therapy.

I wish you asked for proper help and got treatment. I will miss (and always honor) Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, and my original G that left us way too early, Dave Mirra. All had family and kids, but that depression and creativity wiring is a BITCH.

Depression, Mental Issues are real; especially these days (recession/social media, etc). Money ain’t SHIT. Being Brave to ask for Help is. Don’t Commit Suicide Please. Especially if you have kids. Instead, be Brave (on your good day) and ask for help. It will save your kids & family misery. Plus with proper treatment, you will actually find happiness (eventually, with work, meds, easy/fun goals, little steps, friend support circle, etc.). Don’t worry, it will go away. I know because i’ve fought depression and hopelessness many times over, and got to the other side of the constant rain. It is possible.

National 24/7 Suicide Hotline: 1-800-273-8255
