Recently, my cousin asked me to think about writing for his film based website, wired4film. I’m going to, but first I need to figure out how to get Christopher Walken and Christian Bale (I’m a huge Newsies fan) to star in the Stuff Christians Like movie.
That sounds completely ridiculous, but a few months ago someone that works for Universal Studios contacted me about what a SCL screenplay might look like. I immediately said, “You’re going to need a lot of eagles, Skittles and a character named ‘leg dropper.'” I didn’t say that, but I should have. I doubt anything will come of it, but it was still a blast to brainstorm a little with this person about what angle we could take if we turned this blog into a movie.
So that’s what I’d love to talk about today, movies. What have you seen lately that you love? What are your favorites? (You have to say Princess Bride for at least one of your answers.) If you were going to craft the ultimate Christian movie what would it contain?
Let’s talk about movies.
1. Good Will Hunting
2. Princess Bride
3. Beautiful Girls
4. Dead Poet’s Society
5. Love Actually (On television)
6. Fight Club (Although I regularly throw that one away after a retreat)
7. Boondock Saints
8. Man on Fire
