Weekly Wrap-up 11 July 2008

I'm sure all Christian movie fans will be joining me today to go see Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.  You might ask me, "Why?"  Well, aside from being the latest from Guillermo Del Toro, following up his fantastic Pan's Labyrinth, the first Hellboy movie was quite good in its own right.  And now, with his newfound success both critically and commercially, Del Toro is free from the restraints that held back the first film.  

More imporantly, for Christian film lovers, you can see Luke Goss, One Night With the King's eponymous Xerxes, star as another royal jerk, this time some kind of dark elf.  He looked so weird in that movie that I wondered if he was some kind of lost cat-human hybrid.  His strange looks probably work better for him in this film.  

One other thing of note today.  Christians in Cinema has a nice write up reminding people not to forget the pioneers of Christian films.  Billy Graham's World Wide Pictures is highlighted, and we've loved a couple of their movies.
