Hey, I dunno ‘bout you, but I’m sick of trying to find decent movies to watch. There’s so much cr*p out there, it’s sickening. So, now that it’s nearly Christmas, and we’re looking to bless people with something special, please check out Midnight Clear by my friend Dallas Jenkins. Here’s what Dallas says of this movie:
“Midnight Clear, the feature film we worked on over the last year and a half or so, is finally available on DVD from Lionsgate. You can get it anywhere, for the most part, including Walmart and most retail stores. You can also order it online, of course, at places such as amazon.com (http://tinyurl.com/37ge6n). If you're interested in it, please purchase a copy (makes a great Christmas gift, since it's set on Christmas Eve!), as we need good sales to show Lionsgate that our movies can succeed, so they'll make more! And if you like it, please say so at places such as netflix, imdb.com, amazon.com, etc. I hate to sound like such a car salesman, but these are the kinds of things that help build support and interest in Hollywood to make more films like it.
You can see the trailer at our website, as well as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enjG_qbng5Y.
The movie is PG-13 for "mature thematic elements," so it's not a kids movie, but there's no language or sex. The film tells the story of five strangers spread out across a small Southwestern town who are in various stages of loneliness and depression on the day before Christmas. Throughout the day and night, they randomly cross paths, and in subtle but unique ways, affect each other's lives forever. If you check out our website, it's got links to some really good reviews, pictures from the film, updated info, etc.. It's got a good message of hope without being overly sentimental or cheesy.”
One more “Christmassy” thought on this blog. Amidst the Christmas madness, let's have a clear conscience about how we give. How ‘bout we all go out of our way to bless foster children, orphans, homeless and poor people anywhere and everywhere this Christmas? I’ve got lots of ideas how to do this so if you lack any, contact me. Or read this blog again. Or see www.orphansfirst.org
Let’s make this Christmas count like never before for the needy.
