I have to say something about Independent Christian films. Support them! Every Independent film begins with someone who has an idea and a message. To make a Christian film, you spend anywhere between $100,000-$200,000. You rarely recoop that.

Those who do so to make a Christian movie with a Christian message should be lauded. They're making movies because they believe the message will have an impact on people's lives. The Christiano Brothers do great work in making their own movies as well as distributing those of others.

Their Website offers movies at a reasonable price with a good entertainment value. As Christians we often face the choice of who we'll support. I understand that sometimes, we all want just a nice "fun" movie and that's fine. But where should more of our entertainment dollars be going? I'd contend that it's a better idea to invest financially in people who have invested themselves in making movies for the Glory of God.
