Back in April, we wrote here about a trio of brave and persistent film-makers who were attempting to raise $2.1 million to make a movie about the convicted mass-murdering abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Since Kickstarter was unwilling to allow them to use that crowd-funding source, Ann McElhinny, Phelim McAleer and Magdalena Segieda went to Indiegogo, and they were wildly successful, raising a record $2.24 million, the most ever raised for a film via Indiegogo!
Yesterday, they announced some very exciting news, and readers of ‘Two Heads…‘ will be especially pleased, I’m sure:
Andrew Klavan has been signed to write the screenplay for the movie.
I couldn’t put it off forever, I suppose.
Regardless of how thoroughly I enjoyed Tolkien’s books (or maybe BECAUSE of it), I’ve dreaded the thought of viewing the second Hobbit movie…,
…especially considering my well-documented feelings on the first installment.
Since a good friend offered to screen it for several of us in 3-D in his home theater, this seemed the least painful way to experience what would undoubtedly be another travesty of page-to-film corruption.
**From this point on, THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. Thus, “read at your own risk”… even though I was likely one of the last persons on the planet who had NOT already seen this movie.**
Rear Window has been one of my all-time favorite movies from the very first time I saw it.
To me, it’s Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece: memorable, endlessly watchable, and nerve-wracking. For one thing, I wanted to live on that gigantic set: it was spectacular. Didn’t hurt that the film starred not only Jimmy Stewart, who oozed sincerity from every pore, but also Grace Kelly, who vied for my teenage heart with Maureen O’Hara (Maureen usually won that one, though: I had a weakness for redheads back then).
The movie’s premise is simple enough: Jeff (Stewart), a photographer with a broken leg who’s recuperating in his New York City apartment, spends his time spying on his neighbors from his window and becomes convinced one of them has committed murder.

Today I want to share with you an opportunity in which the whole pro-life community can easily get involved, and which could have a tremendous impact on our cultural mindset. But it is already facing opposition, so your participation will be both helpful and encouraging to three documentary filmmakers.

In case you (somehow) hadn’t heard, one of the best family films in recent memory will finally get its sequel:
(via Total Film) – “…Yep, The Incredibles 2 is a reality, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Officially announced by Disney Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger at today’s shareholder’s meeting, that sound you can probably hear is Pixar fans’ brains exploding.
The project is in the very early stages – Brad Bird has only just put pen to paper – but just the fact that Disney / Pixar will be continuing the adventures of Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and their children Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack is reason enough to celebrate…”
And the official “Tweet” is below:
Conservative Christians often complain about entertainment these days. And one of our biggest peeves is how difficult it can be trying to find a movie with a positive, Christian message. Heck, sometimes I’d settle for one which doesn’t seem designed to impugn my faith.
Sure, we’ll see an occasional film like Soul Surfer, but that’s the exception to the rule.
Or is it?
