A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!


« on: August 27, 2015, 11:02:04 PM »

After seeing two Bible movies that butchered the stories they were supposed to re-tell (NOAH and EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS), I was in a mood for a good, uplifting Christian film.  So this week I rented DO YOU BELIEVE?, a movie made by the same folks who did GOD'S NOT DEAD last year.

This movie was even better.  I can't remember a Christian film that I have enjoyed this much.  I spent most of the last 20 minutes sniffling, to be honest.  This is a beautiful story about how 12 lives intersect and are changed forever on a dark night in a large city.  At the beginning of the movie, a tired, overworked pastor runs into an old black man carrying a cross down the street.  The old man asks him one question: "Do you believe in the cross of Christ?"

Over the next hour and a half, a young gang member, a retired couple who lost their daughter in a car crash and finally decide to stop mourning and begin to live again, a Christian EMT who is at the heart of a lawsuit and his wife, a nurse, an ex-con who is trying to make things right before he dies, a pregnant teenager, a homeless widow and her young daughter, an atheist attorney and her doctor boyfriend, and the pastor and his wife all interact in a complex web of circumstances that shines the light of God into a sleepy church and a desperate community. 

Those of you who are hostile to Christianity may not like this film, but I found it to be a beautiful story.  Sean Astin and Sybil Shepherd are among the more recognizable faces in the cast.  I highly recommend this film.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
