    How many remember the 4 part series from the 70's that began with the film, 'A Thief In The Night'?

    What is your opinion of these films? In your opinion, are they still as effective as they were back in the 70's?

    They are extremely dated in their style, dialogue, etc. That takes a lot of their effectiveness away...a common fate of movies.

    I also think that as movies they take some strange tangents in the story. I watched a few of them recently and I kept noticing that it would go on for 20 minutes on some kind of sub story.

    Back in the '70s the enemy was Communism,
    In the 21st century (2001-2100) the enemy is Radical Islam.
    The Antichrist has to keep up with this :eek:

    :laugh: I just saw the complete set on DVD and wondered the same thing...are they too dated to be useful?

    And so maybe some enterprising individual will redo them for the 21st century...

    Yes, but if you've not seen any of these you owe it to yourself to at least watch the first one...you'll like it.

    They were awful, they certainly took liberties when adding to scripture, even after they proclaimed they were taken from scripture and were scriptural.

    Yep. Like taking a pre-trib story line, but a post-tribe title.

    No, see ya don't watch this for any sort of "Scriptural Teaching", ya watch it 'cause it's a part of the Christian culture. It's a historical (hysterical?) thing...
