@daeus-lamb I did enjoy Grace and Gravity, and I’m pretty sure I watched and enjoyed Chariots of Fire (it’s been a long time since I’ve seen it, though).
@selah-chelyah Yes, Amazing Grace is a great movie! It’s been a while since I’ve seen that one too.
@eitan I love The Chosen so much–it’s an amazing example of the kind of storytelling I want to participate in! 😀 And I do remember watching Audacity, but I don’t remember if it seemed more for a secular audience or not.

Okay. Christian movies I’ve loved. All of the Kendricks’, for sure… Overcomer might be my favorite, but I’m still super attached to Facing the Giants and probably always will be. 🥰
I Can Only Imagine makes me cry every time, no matter how many times I’ve seen it. That scene where he’s singing for the huge audience and only sees his dad… I can’t really explain it, that’s just a masterful scene.
And October Baby is so. powerful. If that doesn’t break your heart, something’s wrong.
I watch a ton of war movies, which aren’t usually geared for a Christian audience, even though some of the characters are usually Christians (Jack in We Were Soldiers… 💔). However, on that subject, Indivisible. Most real, impactful war movies being R-rated means they’re missing an audience that still needs to hear these stories. And then there’s Indivisible. It’s Christian, perfectly clean, but doesn’t shy away in the least from the realities of war for soldiers and families. And it’s so beautifully patriotic. If there was one movie that I would say, that’s what I want my stories to be like, it’d be Indivisible. 💙
I ask where he got these crazy ideas anyway
He just smiles and says, it’s the way that I was raised
