I haven’t seen it.

I, too, enjoyed Saved!. As an evangelical Christian, I thought they did a good job at pointing out some of our excesses. It was painful at times, because the humor was very accurate.

I don’t often go see message movies, anyway — I’m looking for escapist entertainment when I venture out to the theater.

I enjoyed Saved! as well.

A really good movie, that.

Good to hear that Stick It maintains much of the attitude of Bring It On–I’ll have to stick it in teh Netflix queue (hah, a pun!)

I thought that was a really terrific movie and that Moore was great in it.

And Ed, have you seen the documentary “Spellbound”? It’s a wonderful non-fiction treatment of the same subject.

I saw it today and it’s great. It has several wonderful messages. One of which, is the power and beauty of language and words. Plus the quote from MLK Jr is incredibly powerful and moving.
