Articles, Commentaries, Interviews, and Other Musings from Preview Editor Phil Boatwright
The Nut Job on DVD
While it may hold the attention of those still enchanted by SpongeBob, I pity parents forced to view alongside their pandered-to progeny.
Jesus and His Movies
Admittedly, “Jesus” movies aren’t my favorite. It’s indeed a case of the book being better than the movie...
The Pirate Fairy on DVD
So many DVDs geared towards little ones test the endurance of older viewers forced to view alongside little ones. So, it’s a pleasure to be able to spotlight a smart, funny, and positive feature for kids that their older relatives can enjoy along with them.
Angels in Stardust on DVD
It’s not a bad movie, but just one that never quite manages to become as poignant as it wants to be. As it is, we are left with unanswered questions and an inconclusive moral.
A Reviewer’s Second Thoughts on Noah
The failings of this film do raise this question: Should we Christians support a Hollywood Bible epic? Or any film, for that matter?
The Old Testament, Hollywood Style
Whatever the makers’ incentives, the fact remains that we have a production dealing with an Old Testament man of God and another theatrical release built around the Savior of the world. Seldom do we see biblical tales playing in cinema.
