    Anyone else viewed the new release from the church in Albany Ga. "Courageous". Excellent film of real life and a message of integrity and redemption. I highly recommend it. Take some tissue.

    I thought it was VERY well done and really got the point across without making it too predictable. I really enjoyed it and it was obvious that most in the theater were believers because of the responses. VERY good movie.

    I saw it at the convention in Phoenix. The makers are asking that Christians nto wait for it to come out on DVD, as we often do, because it gives the film a higher rating. It seems we have done well so far as it was the number 1 new movie and number 4 in sales even though it was in far less theaters than the others.

    The local newspaper moive critic said it was "too preachy"

    I wonder if it is?

    Going to have to wait for the DVD - it won't be in the cinemas here.

    I guess it's too "preachy" if you don't want to hear the message.

    But I think it does an awesome job of speaking to fathers to lead their families. There is also a point where the most direct Gospel presentation occurs and our theater applauded when the character gave it. :)

    The crowd I shared the viewing experience reacted the same way. A standing ovation.

    I think he is comparing the crowd reaction in Alabama as opposed to New York. You would expect a standing ovation in a bible-belt state, like Alabama, more than in a state like New York.
