Little Women – Movie Review

It's been a while since I've read Little Women, but it's my favorite book from that time period, so I was eager to see what a modern retelling in movie form would look like. The movie does a good job of capturing the essence of the story and transferring it to a contemporary setting. Many…

Why We Need Movie Reviewers

When we first began making movies, I hated reviews. I considered movie reviewers “Filmmaker Enemy #1”. Any time we got a negative review, which was quite often in the early days, I cried, convinced the reviewer was just being mean. As we’ve continued in the industry, I’ve grown to appreciate and, yes, even love reviewers. I’ve…

Learn From the Masters – All Saints

All Saints movie review, filmmaking, case study

When I first started Faith Flix my desire was to help filmmakers promote their low budget Christian movies. But over the years, my mission has transitioned to helping filmmakers raise their bar and create higher level projects.

Continuing with the series of articles by film critics sharing their favorite films, today we have movie reviewer Miranda A. Uyeh, editor at To Be a Person.  There were a couple of great Christian movies in 2016, some of them, blockbusters even. Today, I’d like to talk about Patricia Riggen’s Miracles from Heaven. After much…

Yellow Day – Movie Review and Recommendation

I first became aware of Yellow Day last winter when it released theatrically. At the time we were getting ready for the theatrical release of Providence and they played in several of the same markets as us. It was fun watching them as we prepared for our big day. Unfortunately, since we were so busy,…

The Resurrection of Gavin Stone – Movie Review and Recommendation

The Resurrection of Gavin Stone

I've been hearing buzz about The Resurrection of Gavin Stone for sometime. Then I saw the trailer and knew I had to see it. Last week I was invited to screen it, and I can honestly say that it's every bit as good as the trailer promises. The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is an inspirational…

The JESUS Film – Review and Recommendation

The first time I was introduced to The JESUS Film was at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention several years ago. I found it fascinating that it is recognized by The Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Translated Film in history, and  is available in 1,197 languages. In addition, more than 200 million individuals…
