Calvary - 005

It is safe to say that Calvary is by far Jeff, Dylan & Adam’s favorite film they’ve reviewed for the show thus far. But, of course, this show is not just about the quality of a given film, but it’s portrayal of real life faith. How does Calvary stack up? How many pieces of silver does it deserve? And who killed Father James’ dog? All these questions and much more will be discussed in this edition of Divine Cinema. Review of Calvary (03:17) Ratings and Redeemed Perspectives...

The Visitation - 004

The only thing better than a bad Christian movie is a bad horror movie. This week we combine the two with The Visitation. After all, we are headed into Halloween. Listen as Jeff, Dylan and Adam review this convoluted mess of a film. From plot, pacing and phoned in performances this movie misses all the marks. Find out if this film is so bad it’s good, or just plain bad? Review of The Visitation (00:02:09) Ratings and Redeemed Perspectives (00:45:13) PLOT SUMMARY The Visitation...

Simon Birch - 003

10/11/2017
More
Jeff, Dylan, and Adam take a nostalgic look at the 1998 film, Simon Birch on this episode. Hear our take on the small hero, Jim Carrey’s cameo, and the faith portrayed in the Rockwellian setting. Aside from getting a little obsessed over Oliver Platt and his performance, there dissension among the hosts as to the overall quality of this film and its portrayal of faith.

The Apostle (1997) - 002

9/28/2017
More
In Divine Cinema’s first outing with an actual good movie, Jeff, Dylan, and Adam have a lively debate about the main character, Sonny, in the 1997 Robert Duvall film, The Apostle. This episode becomes a character study of sorts as our hosts offer up their thoughts on the motivations of the films main protagonist… or antagonist?

Left Behind (2014)

9/13/2017
More
Jeff, Dylan, and Adam take an in-depth look at 2014 disaster (or maybe more appropriately: a disaster of a film?) film Left Behind starring Nicolas Cage. This film is loosely based on the book of the same name and portrays what would happen in a world where Nic Cage is a pilot and experiences the rapture. The Divine Cinema co-hosts talk about all the ins and outs of the film and try to figure out what is missing from it; besides all the people that got raptured that is. Left Behind Review...
