Now I’m Really Irritated by the Makers of “Left Behind”

They did this.  They seriously did this.

When Left Behind was being released, they had the nerve to post this picture.

640

And then they go and pull the Ebola card?

All in the hope of selling more tickets?  Trying  to freak people out?

I’m sorry, but any hope that I would respect the people who have made and produced “Left Behind” has been left behind.  To take something like Ebola – to publish a picture of a guy in protective clothing WHEN THE PICTURE ISN’T EVEN FROM YOUR MOVIE to try and freak people out and get them to see your movie, is just pathetic.

And I say this as a Christian that is really hoping that Christian filmmaking finds its way – and becomes a cultural force to be reckoned with.

Paul Lalonde, this is not the way.

Either your movie is really good, and actually convinces the critics (look at the reviews for Believe Me) or your movie stinks and the critics call you on it.

You made a big movie, and for that – well done.

But you made a big movie that is universally considered as a dud.  For that – do better next time.

Rather than pulling the Ebola card, and the persecution card, just MAKE BETTER MOVIES.

Just make better movies.

Please.

  1. I hear ya. It always irks me whenever people automatically assume that bad things (war, epidemics, natural disasters, etc.) are God’s judgment on a country. Now, in some cases it might be, but we don’t necessarily know that, so that sort of response is completely uncalled for.
