"who's down with G-O-D?"
This line taken from the movie "Saved!", is just one of the many things that had me shaking my head, pondering how similar (and different) my own educational upbringing was. I just saw this movie tonight after months of anticipation and while I liked it and thought it was good, i was wanting it to be a little bolder and a little more hard / cunning than it actually was. I think the previews make it look like "whoa...it's going to offend!" but in reality, it's mostly tame...as long as your faith can withstand a hollywood film taking some hard shots at it at least. Every character was great though and the performances were strong, all around...despite the weighty cast of character actors. I'd recommend seeing it, if nothing else, b/c it deals so openly with faith in Jesus. It kills me the way hollywood is so timely when it comes to putting out films...they always seem to be one step ahead of the game of life and here, they know Christianity and have many suggestions of how it can "get better." See it and tell me what you think. Good night. :)
