Good message regardless of artistic "faux pas"
30 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree that some Christian films are seriously lacking in artistic excellence. I also agree that some can be preaching to the choir, as someone on this board previously mentioned. "Something to Sing About" may be viewed by certain individuals as "Nothing to Write Home About." But...I wonder...MUST every Christian film be made solely for the purpose of reaching its viewers with a life-changing message? I am the first person to advocate reaching out to people, and I happen to know that "Something to Sing About" was shown in a public setting during an outreach in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, several years ago. I also happen to own the film and, in spite of what some may say, I believe this movie has "stepped it up" in Christian film-making compared to the quality of some I've seen in the past. Using well-known actors such as Irma Hall, Tamara Mowry, and Darius McCrary gave, I believe, a higher level of credibility to the film, compared to some others that have used unknown actors. The quality of the music by Anointed and others, also showed excellence in my book. I'd never be ashamed - rather, I'd be proud - to show this film to various guests in my home. Furthermore, if we want to call this "poor film-making" - I suggest you take a look at some of the "made for TV" movies on Lifetime and other channels. Do you really think some of their "happily ever after" endings supersede the quality of reality given on "Something to Sing About"? I beg to differ. What about some of the holiday movies recently released? I can tell you, for example, "Christmas With the Cranks" was not exactly Hollywood's finest quality! How many ways can you try to create a fresh Christmas idea for a movie? Yet people still watch and enjoy them simply because, whether we want to admit it or not, we tend to LIKE some things that are corny! Why? Simply because we tie them to nostalgic moments in our lives, or give them any meaning we want.
