Most Redeeming Films of 2007
Anyone who knows me knows that I really enjoy good films - I mean, if I could I would watch two movies a day every day.
So, I was pleasantly surprised a couple of years ago when I discovered the film reviews offered by the folks at Christianity Today. I was expecting to see some rather lame reviews complete with a "naughty word count" or some such nonsense - what I found is a site that consistently offers thoughtful and insightful reviews.
One thing I find myself looking forward to every year now is their "Most Redeeming Films of the Year" list.
This year's list includes some truly great films (at least I can vouch for about half of them - I'm looking forward to catching the rest in the next few months).
I'm especially looking forward to seeing Lars and the Real Girl, Into Great Silence, and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.
My wife and I both enjoyed Bella - which says an awful lot (we don't tend to get excited over the same movies very often).
The #3 movie on the list - Juno - I've already seen twice in theaters (not something I normally do) - if you haven't seen it yet, check it out.
Check out the complete list here.
Share your thoughts - what would you say are some of the most redeeming movies you've seen?
