When I first started Faith Flix my desire was to help filmmakers promote their low budget Christian movies. But over the years, my mission has transitioned to helping filmmakers raise their bar and create higher level projects. With that in mind, I’m beginning a new series designed to study high quality films and analyze what it is that makes them successful. We begin with All Saints which released this past weekend.
I love romance movies, chick flicks, and sappy dramas. But I realize that those are not first choice on my husband’s watch list. He wants something with a little action, or comedy, or cool cars. Chances are, if you’re married, you’ve run into the same dilemma. So I’ve put together a list of five movies that offer entertainment for both men and women.
Film is a visual medium. We go to the theater to “watch” movies. We love to view them on giant screens where every detail is magnified in all its glory. The problem is that so few indie movies can hold up to that magnification. While the story may be powerful, and the actors do a fine job, the picture is often drab and uninspiring. Such is not the case with Trust Fund.
For our final post in the favorite films series Kirk Fernwood of One Film Fan chose a different approach. He shares each of the Christian movies he saw this past year and explains what he liked about each one.
