A Christmas Story is inspired by a story heard on the James Dobson radio show, Focus on the Family back in the early 1990’s. This fictional work is written with many Christian concepts in mind that were once taught in many if not most Anabaptist Churches and still taught in some.
One TV show based on a movie- and one movie that’s the fourth of its kind.
He’s already tackled whether dead people can return to life. Now, Jason Mott returns with an exploration of other miracles, like healing and real love.
Margaret Nagle bares her love for kids, the story she has to share, and the difference a movie might make.
There are hurting people all around us who make poor decisions, sometimes decisions that cost them their lives. Do we evaluate what we can do, how we can share a message of hope, salvation and opportunity, or are we satisfied with doing just enough to keep ourselves feeling good about doing something for someone else?
An eye for an eye? That’s the kind of justice Robert McCall dispenses in this rebooted, silver screen version.
Wedlock is perhaps best characterized as an anti-romantic comedy. It takes the formula of a couple who are destined to be together, but somehow haven’t connected, and turns it on its head. Here are a man and woman who live together, but aren’t really what we would think of as a couple.
Mark Landis seeks to be a philanthropist. He has donated work by renowned artists to museums across America. Here’s the catch: They are all fakes which he has forged himself. Art and Craft lets us into Landis’s world and into the world of the art museums he fooled.
In the 1960s, Esquire published some of the best writers available: Tom Wolfe, Nora Ephron, Gay Talese, Norman Mailer, Peter Bogdanovich, John Updike, Gore Vidal, and William F. Buckley, Jr. (Vidal and Buckley had a celebrated kerfuffle in the pages of Esquire.) It became the standard of The New Journalism.
Grace Unplugged took a hard look at a musicialn’s rise to stardom; The Other Woman looks at an affair… and the path to freedom from one side of it. The truth is that The Song is probably better than both of them, in its intimate, close-up view, largely free of meandering and theatrical overacting.
No satirical movie since Saved has the ability to grab ahold of the church the way that Believe Me can. With a solid, winsome cast of young people, a strong script aimed at peeling back the layers of Christianese and specifically Christian mission fundraising, this highly insightful film is as encouraging as it is critical.
While disappointed, I’m hopeful. I’m hopeful that the show will step it up. While the pilot is not perfect, it does communicate a few things that we can assume are going to figure prominently.
Kenya Barris takes us behind-the-scenes of his new show, and tells what it’s like to make a TV show about your own life experience.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D returns as Coulson and his team try to pick up the pieces after S.H.I.E.L.D has been torn down. The team is back, but not all of them are whole. The question is, what will they become?
Within the opening vignette of FOX’s premiere of Red Band Society, I’m hooked. I’m talking belly laughs…and a deep perspective on life that makes sense when you consider that no one wants to be in the hospital, and often, patients are facing their biggest fears; all too often, they are facing death. Little wonder if the humor reserved for mortuaries, prisons, and… pastor support groups prevails.
