You aren't making Christianity better, you are making movies worse.

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

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

("real" Christians often think Mormons aren't real Christians so the Utah fare is often not overtly Mormon, or so I've heard)

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.

 But it's in the subgenre of faith-based and family films that Dallas and Fort Worth may be poised to make their biggest mark.

Well, duh.  If you include "and Fort Worth" in the area you're talking about, then literally  any category you could name is going to have a 90% incidence of it coming with a free 10-foot statue of a crucified Jesus spray-painted gold with rhinestones studded on it at randomly on the side.

Like, I'm pretty sure that's the standard happy-meal toy, and any car without a 2-foot cross made of glued-on rhinestones on each door is automatically ticketed as abandoned junk and towed.

They have a little too much Jesus going on even for the average Jesus nut, is what I'm getting at here.  They're considered uncomfortably new-age protestant by  the rest of North Texas, that's kind of like if the Grand High Wizard of the North Carolina legislature was uncomfortable around you because you're "a bit racist".

//Dallas in itself is pretty much fine, they make the rhinestones for the little old ladies in Fort Worth but they don't actually apply them.

This whole thread should just be links to clips or trailers for terrible Christian movies.

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?

The fact that Santorum is in Texas and no where near Pennsylvania is good news

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