Hollywood's Christian Blockbuster
But what no one seems to be talking about is the force that had a great deal to do with why The Blind Side, which was made on a modest budget of $29 million, is suddenly one of the most profitable films of 2009: Christians.

3. Ugh. Combines two of my least favorite genres...
The Jock Movie and the Xian Movie.

Since I listen to local Fundie radio here in L.A. - know the enemy - I've heard all the breathless raving about this turkey. It sounds sort of like a big-budget Lifetime movie. One populated by stock characters crafted out of pure cardboard, with the goal of making the viewers feel good. Especially if they are rich white Southern Republicans.

For a REALLY entertaining Christer movie, check out this winner.

It's got EVERYTHING! Cheesy Mormon propaganda, missionary arrogance, mindless insults to indigenous people. One sub-plot has an indigenous woman wanting her daughter to mate with the Mormon missionary so she will have light-skinned children. Pure comedy gold!

The Other Side of Heaven
