5 Fall/Holiday Movies We Want to See!

    We recently did a post on “5 Christian Movies We Love” and that got us thinking: What are some other movies that are coming soon or available now that we think you girls would like? The five movies below are all inspiring in their own ways. While most of them won’t be released until the holidays, a few are out now, so get ready to have some fall film fun!

    By now, most of you are likely familiar with the #1 movie in the country, Gravity. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in this thriller in which a team of astronauts is thrust into space after a disaster occurs on their mission. This thrill ride is full of heart-pounding suspense that’s not to be missed in 3-D. Christians have been praising the film for its allegory of faith. Eric Hann, Cinema and Media Arts professor at Biola University, said, “I don’t know that I would make the claim that the film gestures toward Christ himself, but a God who interacts with events, who does miracles—there’s a definite argument in that.” You can read more on Gravity and how it pertains to the Christian message here.

    Some of you may have heard of Jeremy Lin, the pro basketball player who took the NBA by storm two years ago for the New York Knicks, but you might not know that Jeremy is a Christian. This sports documentary on “Linsanity,” as the New York media declared the sensation, sheds some light on Lin’s life on and off the court, and demonstrates in a positive way what Christ can do in one’s life.

    Angels Sing
    Angels Sing
    is a holiday tale about a man named Michael Walker (played by Harry Connick, Jr.), who, as a child, wished every day was Christmas. That is, until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later, Michael still can’t muster the joy of the holiday, despite encouragement from his wife (Connie Britton) and well-intentioned parents. But when his young son faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A mysterious man named Nick (Willie Nelson) gives Michael a gift that instills in him the courage to find the Christmas joy that he lost. Recently approved by The Dove Foundation, Angels Sing is certainly a movie to not be missed this holiday season.

    Black Nativity
    This film is an adaption of Langston Hughes’ celebrated play. It follows Langston (Jacob Latimore), a young teen raised in Baltimore by his single mother (Jennifer Hudson), as he journeys to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged relatives Reverend Cornell and Aretha Cobbs (Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett). Unwilling to live by the Reverend’s imposing rules, a frustrated Langston is determined to return home to his mother. Langston then embarks on a surprising and inspirational journey that helps him discover the true meaning of faith, healing and family.

    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
    J. R. R. Tolkien’s masterpiece series The Hobbit hit theaters last year; this second part of the three-part series follows where 2012’s An Unexpected Journey left off. The hobbit Bilbo Baggins travels with the wizard Gandalf and a company of 13 dwarves into the Kingdom of Erebor, taking them through a long journey before a combat with the dragon Smaug. The themes of maturation and overcoming greed and selfishness are woven throughout the story. As popular as Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series was, we’re guessing that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will top your Christmas holiday movie-watching list!

        And I’m really glad other people are getting excited about Catching Fire! *insert fangirl squeal* And although the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special isn’t a movie, its definitely on my list to be watched this fall! Anyone else planning on watching that?

        • YESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOSOSO excited about that!!!! And how could I forget Thor 2????? :O I am in so much suspense about that one…

    1. Literally at the beginning of the Gravity trailer when it was silent with just the words and then it suddenly went to the picture it made me jump so much! My high volume didn’t help either, lol.
