Making a movie that is beautiful is damn hard. Damn hard. Expecting to be able to produce a film with no experience or training is arrogant and as absurd as someone thinking they could just build a building with no traiing or experience in architecture.

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed has been making a lot of news lately. It was the number 10 movie over the weekend(admittedly in a weekend of lousy movies; No. 1 was The Forbidden Kingdom, a Jet Li/Jackie Chan film, by way of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3-as much as I like Jackie Chan, and occasionally enjoy Jet Li, this looked like crap to me). They are getting enough recognition that the movie dominates the entire first page of Google results for "expelled."

Coming soon, Christian movie The Impostor, a story about a government agent involved in finding an alien spy on Earth, only to realize that he might be the spy himself. Starring Gary Sinise, Vincent D'Onofrio...wait a second. That's not The Impostor. That's Impostor. Right.

Here's a fun looking film that I heard about over on the Reelcast blog.

Advent Film Group's Come What May has, according to Christian Newswire, finished pickup shooting, which should mean that it'll come out soon. The official site still says "Late Spring 2008," so they have about 2 months left to make that, unless they go for a House-type delay.

There's another Christian Film Festival on the horizon. This October, now that the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival has moved to January(to compete with Sundance?), Christian filmmakers can enter their works in the KingDomWood Christian Film Festival in Atlanta, GA. Actually, it looks like it will be held in a suburb of Atlanta known as Lithonia, GA.

Christian Cinema has an interview with the enigmatic but prolific filmmaker Michael O. Sajbel. While I still say that Sajbel really, really needs to do a director's commentary on his films(is he trying to emulate Spielberg?), mainly because his films have lots of elements that I would love to hear his thought process for doing. Even more than Spielberg, Sajbel is almost completely absent from the extra features on his films, appearing only in the background of some of the documentary features.
Sajbel does have a gift for self promotion that you have to give him credit for; consider this quote:

Disembodiment is not an option for the Christian. Christ places His Body and His Blood at the heart of our faith in Him. Our faith comes to naught if the Incarnation was not accomplished in actual time and space – if God did not send His Son to us in a real body with real blood."

Christanity takes another of its the tremulous steps towards so-called Web 2.0. A while back we wrote about Faith Visuals, and we also mentioned the ill-concieved(IMO) GodTube.
Now we have another contender, this time a little site called iAmlifyFaith. This company has been around for a little while, delievering Christian content in the form of downloads(both audio and video). Unfortunatly, it all seems to be for purchase, with little or nothing for free, so I couldn't find anything to link to for you to watch or listen to.

Note: We messed up the recording... So my voice (and nose whistle) are much louder than Jon's voice (and bodily functions). I think we figured it out for next time though. Only 26 episodes and we finally (maybe) got it! - Don

CT Movies, always reliable for good Christian movie news, and good movie reviews in general, has a new interview with Steve Taylor and Donald Miller. As we previously reported, Taylor is adapting Blue Like Jazz, Miller's bestselling pseudo-memoir into a movie.
