  1. This is the first I've seen of this movie, which has some intriguing qualities to it, IMHO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMjo5f9eiX8&feature=share&list=UUKRU6yh8rHqmRuX2htuFDNg - Full trailer. Is Dean Cain playing... Satan? The first few bits of the trailer, with Dean Cain and the Robertsons, seem like they are from a different movie than the rest of it. Also, it seems kind of like a Christian college student's fantasy. But I guess a lot of it will depend on how the film plays out the conflict. Certainly, I have had a lot of experiences with Christian college students being c
  2. Link to our thread on 'Movies and the OT prophets' (Nov 2011). Link to the blog post in which I provided a few links for Oversold (2008), a half-hour short film based on Hosea which starred a former porn star. This popped up on Netflix today: When five teenagers embark on a youth group weekend camping trip, a confrontation occurs between two of the teens, giving the opportunity for their leader to share the touching Old Testament story about the prophet Hosea. Starring Sean Astin as a youth pastor. (His mother, Patty Duke, is also listed in the credits.) Directed by Kevin Downes, whos
  3. I've just received notification of a new endeavor from Jonathan Bock: As1. The As1 mission statement: Frankly, I'm surprised that there hasn't yet been a Christian adult contemporary vocal group called As1. Bock wraps up his appeal like this: I'm always troubled by language like this: "Through our demographic size and collective buying power, we will unite to impact the culturally influential art of our time." But the line in this mission statement that worries me most is this: "As we have throughout history, we will generously reward the artists who tell our stories." Our
  4. In his CT review, Ken pretty much confirms what I'd suspected...
  5. Link to our thread on this year's Oscar nominees for Best Original Song, which is how most people first heard about this film. Link to my blog post on this film from a few days back. There's been some discussion on my Facebook wall about the fact that the film's website trumpets its endorsement by the Dobsons, Rick Santorum and other socially-conservative, religious-right types. Now Fred "Slacktivist" Clark has a post entitled 'How the most famous white evangelical with a disability became the public face of the white evangelical campaign against the rights of persons with disabilities
  6. Haven't seen a thread on this film, although as a Georgia native I've been aware of it for a few years now. It was also apparently screened at this year's Biola Media Conference... Looks like a "what you'd expect" kind of Christian film starring a football coach in the south. It's making the news today though for getting a PG rating by the MPAA because of its spiritual message. Link to the Article QUOTE The MPAA, noted Fuhr, tends to offer cryptic explanations for its ratings. In this case, she was told that it "decided that the movie was heavily laden with messages from one religion an
  7. MovieGuide: Mercy Rule is a family movie starring and produced by Kirk Cameron. It follows the ups and downs of a father trying to save his business from lobbyists while his son struggles to succeed on his little league team. This well-written story shows how a family comes together in the midst of trying circumstances and stands strong for one another. Mercy Rule depicts a middle-class, suburban American family, the Millers. The father, John (Kirk Cameron), owns a scrapping and recycling business, Dante, started by his father. His business has been successful for many years while operatin
  8. The Dove Foundation: ... This is an inspirational movie in every sense of the word. It features a story about a teen named Zoey (nicely played by Savanah D. McMahon) who while driving one evening is struck by a drunk driver. She winds up in a coma and the plot centers on her father, Sgt. Kurt Roberts (Klor M. Rowland Jr.) and her mother, Julie (Kimber Leigh), and their attempt to keep their faith in God and trust Him in a very difficult situation. Julie’s faith begins to wilt and Kurt has the extra pressure of believing for a miracle at times all by himself. He does find support in the faithf
  9. http://www.donaldmillerwords.com/ "To say we�ve given the book a Hollywod treatment is an understatement. The book itself would be, of course, difficult to turn into a movie, and so we took creative liberties. But in my opinion, the movie will be infinitely better than the book. Essentially we�ve taken the major, real life characters from the book, and gave them a story all their own. The end result is provactive and humorous and in my opinion quite moving." I wonder if we're going to start seeing this as a trend, what with this and that Purpose Driven Life movie they're supposed to be m
  10. Links to the threads on Facing the Giants (2006) and Fireproof (2008). - - - Sherwood Pictures Announces Courageous Sherwood Church, home of the hit independent movies Flywheel (DVD only), Facing the Giants, and Fireproof, at its Sunday evening service tonight, announced the theme and title for Sherwood Pictures' fourth movie. Senior Pastor Michael Catt, Executive Pastor Jim McBride, and ministers Stephen and Alex Kendrick--collectively the leadership team of Sherwood Pictures--made the announcement. "The movie is about fatherhood and the title is one word: 'Courageous,'" Alex Kendrick sa
  11. NPR has a report on Christian moviemaking that makes me want to... well, never mind. I'll let you decide for yourselves.
  12. Christian Filmmaker Takes On Popular WWJD Book I know, I know. I'm sorry. I couldn't help it. In the meantime, by far my favorite part of this whole thing is how on the DVD cover it says in bold print "OVER 40 MILLION SOLD" but uh, I'm going to tentatively guess that the smaller print will then explain that the bold print is referring to copies of the book, In His Steps, not actually to the film ... yet anyway.
  13. Samuel Goldwyn set for 'Life' Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired U.S. theatrical rights to faith-based teen drama "To Save a Life" and set a Jan. 22 release for the New Song Pictures production. . . . Goldwyn said it's working with Outreach Films and New Song Pictures to market "To Save a Life" and noted it's released other faith-based titles including "Fireproof," "Facing the Giants" and "Amazing Grace." . . . Variety, October 27 - - - FWIW, I blogged this film a year ago, almost to the day, back when it was known as HOW to Save a Life (and the movie's official website was howYOUsavealif
  14. Catholic Online: Are you ready? Here it comes.
  15. QUOTE ALBANY, Ga. (Baptist Press)--The two brothers who directed "Facing the Giants" now are working on another cinematic release -- "Fireproof," starring Kirk Cameron -- about saving a failing marriage. Stephen Kendrick, co-writer and director for the newest movie from Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., along with his brother Alex, wrapped up five weeks of filming their latest Christian drama in December. Earlier releases "Flywheel, The Movie" in 2003 and Facing the Giants in 2006 received strong reviews and calls for another installment in the feel-good, faith-based, family values ve
  16. As per a message I just posted to the Steve Taylor thread in the music forum (a thread which, I might add, is mostly about the movie rumours that have circulated around Taylor for years despite the fact that no actual movies have been made), it seems Michael W. Smith recently gave an interview to Billboard in which he said he would be appearing in the film. The film will reportedly be called The Second Chance, and it will reportedly be about a pastor who is sent against his will to work in the inner city and, of course, comes to love the people there. I really, really hope the film isn't as
  17. [This thread began after another thread became too... um... heated. It is an attempt to raise a question and address it with caution and respect among the participants.] What if we started this conversation over? What if we began by linking to Peter's review of The Last Sin Eater, and several other reviews ... like Facing the Giants, The Second Chance, Hangman's Curse, etc.? (Film Forum would give us some good cross-sections of reviews on these films.) And then, what if we tried to discuss the central issue all over again ... those of us who have seen the movies ... in order to re-consid
  18. So our favorite film distributor, FoxFaith, is releasing it's next brilliant masterpiece of contemporary Christian cinema, 'The Last Sin Eater'. The storyline is based off a book by best-selling Christian fiction author Francine Rivers. QUOTE In 1850's Appalachia, 10-year-old Cadi feels responsible for her little sister's death, so she searches ou the one man she feels can take away her sin - The sin eater. Could actually be an interesting concept, if not muddled by FoxFaith's tendency to produce rather preachy films (see film description on website). Comes out Feb. 9.
  19. Hi, Faithful City ---- Isaiah 1:26 You remember that movie about how it was illegal to read books. They should make a futuristic movie how it is illegal to worship Jesus. (At least it would be an intersting idea for a movie) Thanks. God Bless. Aaron.
  20. I saw the June conference on the calendar. What is International Christian Visual Media? Pros and cons?
  21. How do I write nicely about a movie made by Christian folks that falls short on almost every level? I'll be honest. I hope that's okay... if folks connected with the film are reading this, I hope they'll take this in the spirit in which I intend it. That is: I want to encourage Christian filmmakers to excellence. And I am tired of seeing money and resources spent on things that are not only shoddy, but will be transparently obvious to a non-Christian audience as an agenda-driven, preachy, and out-of-touch piece of work. I'm sure the filmmakers like what they do and have good intentions. But th
  22. “Less blood!” No, I was gonna poll this one but realized it’s more than just a pick and choose question. If you could have creative input into a project, be it a secular project with Christian theme or a Christian project with a secular theme or what have you, what would you like to see? “Christian films” for the most part lack an essential element of what I call the Top Three: 1. A great script. 2. A great cast/crew (including director). 3. A great production value. (‘Bang’ for bucks). I’ve seen every combination of two out of three out there, but it’s very rare one will find all
