  1. Is it a sin to watch “non-Christian” movies with swear words, and hang out with non-Christian friends who swear? (Even if it doesn’t make me swear or sin)
  2. Is watching certain movies with swear words and saying swear words a serious sin? Will I go to hell for it?
  3. The greatest movie I've ever laid eyes on is Jesus of Nazareth. But these days, Hollywood mocks Christianity. However, there is a movie from the late '90s I can't recommend highly enough-The Apostle starring Robert Duvall. No Hwood production since Jesus of Nazareth has honored Christianity more than this movie does. Duvall dominates the film as a charismatic preacher filled with the Spirit of the Lord, talking out loud with Jesus day & night. He gives an amazing performance as a man thoroughly in love with the Lord who, in a moment of passion & rage, accidentally kills a man. The movie is very entertaining. Even secular movie aficionados give it high ratings- Amazon, 4 1/2 of 5 stars, & Rotten Tomatometer rates it at 89%. Duvall fought to get the film made. Besides spending millions of dollars out of his own pocket, he wrote, directed, produced, acted, sang on the soundtrack, and convinced other actors to work for scale, just to get the movie on the big screen! The cast includes June Carter Cash, Farrah Fawcett, Miranda Richardson, & Billy Bob Thornton. After seeing the film, Marlon Brando wrote Duvall a letter congratulating him on making such a moving film. Other Soundtrack songs include Shine On by Dolly Parton, I'm a Soldier in the Army of the Lord by Lyle Lovett, & Waitin' on the Far Side Banks of Jordan by June Carter Cash. Please, if you haven't seen it already, watch this great film! A compelling story with lots of funny & sad parts, rejoicing, & finally, redemption. DO NOT leave your seat or turn it off too quickly when the final credits roll, or you'll miss this 'on fire' preacher evangelizing the entire chain-gang prison workers. I think it can be seen for $3.99 here at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002YH1ZT2/ref=atv_feed_catalog?tag=rottetomao_aiv_mv-20
  4. Has anyone gone to see "Risen" yet? If so what do you think of it? The previews for it are very short but it looks good. I read some where else that it's fairly true to the Bible. I hope so. Whenever a Bible based movie gets made we have to remember it's bound to take some liberties with what the Bible says because it has to turn a profit. If the Bible movies don't make money for the producers there will soon be no Bible movies at all. I think "The Young Messiah" isn't scheduled to come out until we get closer to Easter. Since the Bible says very little about the early years of Jesus I'm already expecting it to be mostly speculation. Nevertheless, I want to see it anyway.
  5. Has anyone read Pilgrims Progress? This seems like it would be an awesome movie. I haven't read the book, but I've heard a lot of good things about it. Info about the film . **Link removed** HeavenQuest is based on the original work of John Bunyan and his 1678 allegorical masterpiece, The Pilgrim’s Progress. The movie will be directed by Matt Bilen, written and produced by Darren Wilson and the team at WP Films. It will be a highly stylistic, fantastical, and beautiful story with themes of hope, sacrifice, and ultimately salvation. Like Bunyan’s original work, HeavenQuest will feature exotic creatures, eccentric characters and beautiful locations as the story follows a man desperate to escape his dark past and the impending doom that will befall him. He undertakes a dangerous journey filled with peril in hope of finding his freedom. Although reimagined, you’ll still find yourself overlooking the city of Destruction, caught in the Slough of Despond, escaping the caverns of Mt. Sinai, and traveling to the Wicket Gate in this epic retelling. The 300-year-old book that inspired the likes of C.S. Lewis will become an all-new ambitious, heart-warming, action-packed, and inspiring film as it reaches the big screen in 2016. You were disappointed with Exodus. You were upset with Noah. As Hollywood has tried to make films about faith-filled stories, they have too often forgotten that faith also needs to be a part of the story itself. Our goal with this film is to change things. We want to make the Christian film you’ve always wanted to see--one that is exciting, entertaining, with high production values, but that doesn’t shy away from faith, struggle, and redemption. For years now, people have been asking us when we are going to make a feature film that isn’t a documentary. Well, the time is now. While we will continue to make God-honoring documentaries, we have always had a heart for narrative film, and are excited to begin that journey with one of the most iconic and beloved stories in literary history. As we began to look at doing this story, we delved into some of the reasons other Christian films with lower budgets didn’t fare so well, and we’ve built both a story and a style that will allow us the kind of flexibility that you need to be able to make a movie with more limited resources. While $1.2 million may sound like a lot, it is a low-budget amount in the world of narrative feature films. So we’ve made the tough decision to make HeavenQuest only about the beginning of the overall journey. The focus, obviously, will be on the main character, Christian. As with any adaptation, we have had to change certain elements and reshape others, but we have tried hard to stay true to the core story and message of the book. One of the trickier aspects to deal with was the fact that the original story is a blatant allegory (where everything has a very literal and obvious meaning), whereas modern audiences are not used to this kind of storytelling. To that end, we’ve kept some of the core allegorical elements of the characters (Christian, Mr. Worldly Wiseman, Mr. Legality, etc…) but we’ve set the action in a more realistic world--albeit a fantastical one. Matt Bilen came to us with a very singular, fascinating vision for this film, and it was one that appealed to us artistically, but also was very pragmatic in its approach. The film will have a visceral, stylistic, and realistic feel. Our experience making documentaries has taught us many techniques in creating a hand-held “you are there” approach, and we will use lighting and negative space in creative ways to create various moods, but also to avoid expensive details in the background. Matt has done great work in gathering a first rate team together, from award-winning special effects artists to amazingly talented post-production personnel. We are working hard to make this not only a powerful film, but one that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
  6. My uncle and I went to see the movie "Noah" yesterday. What happened??? Transformer monsters, stow-aways, top decks, separate boats? The producers obviously had enough money to make a good movie, and they fumbled the ball. A little less Hollywood, and closer to scripture would have been nice. Did they think they could improve on the bible?
  7. ok, so someone posted a thread about the best version of a christmas carol... let's expand that. what's your favorite christmas movies? i love Jack Frost with michael keaton and kelly preston. i really like Family Man with nicholas cage and tea leoni. Ice Age: Continental Drift is sure to be a new classic, because scrat can do no wrong! How the Grinch Stole Christmas with jim carey is an annual favorite in my house too. this year i watched a couple of new ones so far... Christmas with Holly was a hallmark film, and it was kinda reminscent of three men and a baby (or the sequel, three men and a little lady.) but, it was way better than the three men movies, even though it had a similar theme. we all enjoyed it around here. mom and i also watched Christmas Angel. it had della reese in it. wonderful movie, and it's on netflix. and, my all time favorite that has to be watched every year, It's A Wonderful Life... the original one.
