A Friday afternoon thought…

War-Room_300This afternoon, I was watching a video review of one of the recently released Christian-made movies, and the reviewer said the following:

“Christians, we need to support Christian content, because if we want to get better content we need our films to make more money, because it’s going to take money to make the next one.”

I’ve heard this argument many times, but is it true?

If Hollywood rewards success by making more of what was successful, doesn’t our support of problematic movies just mean that we’ll be getting more problematic movies in the future? The success of Transformers 1 did not mean that we got better Transformers movies, we just got bigger and louder Transformer movies.

Are we just due for bigger and louder Christian-made movies that still have the same issues?

What do you think? Will the success of a movie like War Room mean overall better Christian films in the future, or just more movies like War Room with better production values?
