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.

    Somehow this is reminding me of Spielberg’s bad remake of Peter Pan, with Julia R. as Tinkerbelle… including fart jokes.

    E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web: I’m not a bad Hollywood movie, I’m not a bad Hollywood movie!
    Sir Bedevere: But you’re dressed like one.
    E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web: They dressed me up like this!
    Crowd: We didn’t! We didn’t. . .
    E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web: And this fart gag isn’t mine. It’s not in the book!
    Sir Bedevere: [makes close visual inspection of said fart gag, obviously “tacked on”] Well.
    Peasant: Well, we did do the fart gag.
    Sir Bedevere: The fart gag. . .
    Peasant: And the silly Julia Roberts voice–but she is a bad Hollywood movie!
    Crowd: Yeah! Burn her, burn her!

    Man. What are kids going to grow up to if all we entertain them with are actors pretending to be dogs, and farts. I’m sad. Probably more sad than that rat was when he fell off the rail.

    Isn’t this film being produced by Walden Media, the same outfit that tarnished The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and looks set to do the same with Bridge to Terabithia?

    LOL! Thanks Jeff for referring folks to my site. I enjoy spirited, intelligent film criticism from an informed Christian perspective, which you, Peter C, Steven G, and many others on the ArtsAndFaith board do on a regular basis. I’ve often been rewarded with a night of wonderful viewing because of this site.

    So, it’s kinda odd that my site (promoting my Catholic-based/”Weird Al”-based musical antics) finally gets a referral here, even tho it’s to winning for a film I’ve yet to see (but I will now make sure to tape it when it hits Turner Classic Movies)…

    Thanks again!

    Argh! That second half-shot made me think of Coal Miner’s Daugher, believe it or not.

  • Neb

    Whew! Now I can sleep tonight… I don’t feel so bad since I’ve never seen it.
