- My Reel News at CT Movies focuses on the end of the Disney boycott, but there are a lot of other news links as well.
- Peter Chattaway takes a look at Mr. and Mrs Smith AND Howl’s Moving Castle.
- Some folks who are fed up with “Christian-defamation” in Hollywood are teaming up with Ted Baehr to try and stop it. When Christians are criticized in Hollywood films, what do you think our primary response should be? To turn defensive and protest? Just curious. (Personally, I find that a lot of the criticism leveled at Christians at the movies is actually criticism we’ve earned, and would do well to keep in mind as we consider our response. Wouldn’t it be wise to focus our efforts on cultivating behavior that makes such criticism irrelevant and clearly ridiculous? How about helping people to see that criticism of Christian behavior is not necessarily criticism of Christ? And how about making some films of our own that portray people of faith as flawed, but the faith itself as blameless?)
- McSweeney’s has a whole new idea: “Reviews of DVDs that may or may not be pirated but were definitely bought on the streets in Shanghai for about a dollar.”
