"Christian Film Industry" sounds like an oxymoron. And I say that as someone who actually owns "The Omega Code" on DVD.

Allah it?

Let's hope they do this without using science. Or any technology that comes from science.

So that's where Kirk Cameron wound up.

So it will also be a gay porn mecca?

Nic Cage is starring in the Left Behind movie.

No need to worry.  I'm certain it will never reach the pinnacle of popularity that is "Christian Rock"

Ugh. Supposedly some Christian group wants to build a theme park here as well. Fark around

That's a given

If the Christian film industry wants to actually produce something decent, they should buy the rights to "This Present Darkness" from whatever studio is currently sitting and doing nothing with it.
 
2013-08-29 08:17:49 PM
Christian porn industry!?!

I...oh. Nevermind.

I thought it's always been based there. What there's been of it, at any rate.

So, these Christian movies... My familiarity with them tells me that they are a lot like those lifetime movie network  made for TeeVee movies where Valarie Bertonalie gets into an abuse relationship and has the crap beat out of her and she finally gathers the strength to leave the abusive alcoholic douche bag because JESUS! and her sassy chick friends and everyone lives happily ever after, but in the christian movies, its follows the abusive douche-bag who eventually discovers that he is an abusive douche-bag, finds Christ and accepts his love and stops being and abusive douche-bag because JESUS!!!! and everyone lives happily ever after.


That's my general observation at least... how far off am I?

People react to this like this country doesn't have freedom of religion. If Christians have found a place they can easily make films, then good for them. It doesn't harm anyone.

Okay, I'm tired and cranky right now.  But I think the point here isn't so much there is a Christian film industry or that they finally found a home in the buckle of the Bible Belt.  It's the fact the report said it would be the "mecca" of the industry.

That no one is harmed is always open for debate when that argument is raised.

However, if they are any kind of genre film, then they are by default B-grade exploitation flicks...

but that's okay... so was Jaws

With that said, I have no problem with this, or Christians right to make horrible movies.. it is their right, and I do support their right to make horrible genre films.

That's all fine but can they do it somewhere else. We got enough religious douchebaggery around here already

That's last one made me look up a movie I watched when I was a kid, Invitation to Hell, where Robert Ulrich uses a spacesuit designed to survive a trip to Venus to rescue his family from Hell after Susan Lucci tempts them with evil. It was a actually directed by Wes Craven. Now that could be a fun movie to remake with better writing and production.

A bunch of Christian and/or Conservative movies are made in SLC/Utah including this hatchet job.

Yeah, but it did seem like a lot of people were missing that.

Former journalist here, and I remember a few years ago the AP issued a memo reminding us idiots (not me in particular, of course) not to use "Mecca" as a synonym for "the subject's ideal gathering spot," because Mecca is considered a proper name for a specific place. And if it's used incorrectly ("Nordstrom is a shoe mecca for fashionistas!"), that's extremely offensive to members of a certain religion. (Also, by the way, capital "M.")

Fark them. It's like Christians getting pissed when books use bible in the title, ie. PhotoShop Bible.

I tend to agree. I also should have been clear that I was paraphrasing the memo, not scolding anyone here for not capitalizing the word.

It sounds like the description to pretty much every Tyler Perry movie, only without all of the Tyler Perry.

In other words, you seem to be fairly spot-on.

Good idea - let's pitch it: Tyler Perry's "Passion of Christ", by Tyler Perry, starring Tyler Perry, produced and directed by Tyler Perry.
Tyler Perry.
