I love wholesome, uplifting films. I love walking away from a movie feeling urged to be better, inspired by a true story and determined to better my life. Unfortunately, in today's entourage of Hollywood films, it feels like very few movies inspire. In fact, many do just the opposite, leaving me feeling empty and dark.
I guess I wasn't surprised when I heard on the news the other day that Hollywood's revenues in 2011 had tanked, down 4.5%. Sure, they blamed some of that on Netflix and other digital movie sources, but they also said that the lack of family movies and an emphasis on horror films also led to fewer movie goers. That tells me one thing...I'm not the only one that likes good, wholesome movies!
While watching the previews for a great movie (Soul Surfer), I was introduced to a great movie source by Sony Pictures: Affirm Films. Affirm films has one goal: To provide wholesome, uplifting movies to families. I haven't been disappointed. Their movies include Soul Surfer, Fireproof, Facing the Giants, Mrs. Miracle, the Grace Card. I've seen all of these and have not been disappointed.
