What if… ?

Hmmm. If they could make Alien Versus Predator

then maybe…

Stay tuned! I’ve seen The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and later this week I’ll see Serenity. I’ll have reviews of both soon, and we’ll see who wins the Celebrity Death Match between two vicious female contortionists!

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    It most definitely does qualify as having “legs,” yes.

    Especially now that Jackson has stunned us all by delivering a movie that is entertaining but hard to feel any kind of passion for…

    $31,837,683 to Kong’s $50 million. Does this qualify for legs? Not being sarcastic here, by the way. Just curious.

    I don’t think we’ll see all 7 books filmed. Lion remains the most popular and accessible. And Narnia lacks the natural hype machine built around the release of each new book by Rowling.

    Well, I’m going back, and taking my young relatives. OK, it’s not what we hoped it would be, but it still beats 98% of the other movies in the theaters right now.

    I told my (admittedly tiny) congregation yesterday to go see it.

  • Seventh Leper

    I’m hoping it’ll last at least until Christmas! I have family coming into town and that was going to be the family movie to go see. I guess there are worse things, however, than having to go see King Kong. ;)

  • Why

    I just saw the trailer for “The Exorcisim of Emily Rose” and it scared me.
