Site Name: Good News Film Reviews
What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
The purpose of the site is to offer humorous, to-the-point reviews and commentary from a Christian point-of-view – don’t worry, I ain’t going to get all Bible-thumper on you.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I strive to teach with my blog. With my readership, I want to help them learn how to read the films they’re watching, and how to identify the messages being imparted by the cinema. Often Christians dismiss film as corrosive or as unimportant. I hope to change these perceptions and get Christians to take film more seriously. A more informed and active Christian audience can only help since what this culture needs is more informed voices talking and less ignorant one’s yelling.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
A little from both. I teach and students do read my blog. This said, I write for an open audience.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I update 2-3 times a day and have been writing online since 2004.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, The Quiet Man, Casablanca.
How did you hear about the LAMB?
I found via Intermission at Work.
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
My site is the home of the Carnival of Cinema, a weekly collection of film-related posts submitted from around the world. My reviews and posts are consistently syndicated on USAToday.com, Reuters, and The Chicago Times.
Also, I would like to invite every LAMB member to submit their posts to the Carnival of Cinema. I take submissions every week through Wednesday afternoon, 4pm Pacific with the each edition normally posting the following Friday. Editions have been published on USAToday as well as several local news station websites.
