My Film Forum column gets discovered by Whedon-ites


Today’s Film Forum just scored cheers from Joss Whedon fans at Whedonesque!

Check out the comments! It’s great to see that Christianity Today‘s example of engaging with contemporary film instead of condemning it is making an impression.

And at least for the moment, this is the top story on the Web site.

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.

    the road TO mediocrity?

    i’m sure we’re all aware that the only noticeable thing to come out of SNL this year was the white-boy rap of “lazy sunday,” admittedly funny, but mostly from context.

  • CM

    Jeffery, you didn’t miss much on SNL. That show continues to slide down the road to mediocrity with each passing week.

    ooops. guess i was wrong about that one.

    man, that makes about as many wrongs as a fella can take in an extended weekend. (re: me being a bears fan)

    Dude, I *live* in Shoreline. That house is just a few blocks away, I’d just never noticed it before.

  • Eli

    Whoa, the house across the street from the yellow junior football sign? Until I moved into the SPU dorm, I lived half a block away from that house. During the election campaign, the sign was vandalized (huge surprise), only to be replaced. The flashing sign blasted Kerry’s war record and made other one-liners.

    It’s great to hear that you visited Shoreline!

    I’m guessing that the screen shot is from “Chariots of Fire.”

    johanssen and dcfc were LAST night.

    no great improvement (sad), mostly musical stuff, although there was a bit on crazy pat robertson during the news show that was pretty funny.

    i’m not sure about this, but that security cam, w/ the bush/cheney, etc., etc., sounded like a lame-o’s art project. maybe it’s just a different type of cynic in me.
