    This film was not the best done, or the most moving. Several films not on this list were better films. (The Spider Man films, Inglorious B——-s, Juno, Iron Man and even  Twilight, were all better films.) Still, a church got together and made a good film with a great message, and I think that should be applauded.

    I have found that a lot of bands like doing Christmas music and just putting it out their on the web. I suspect the is a mixture of Generosity and marketing, still I have discovered great (often odd and eclectic) music for the holiday that is only a point and a click away.

    Danielson a Family Movie (or, Make A Joyful Noise HERE)

    November 18, 2008


    What Is It?

    The Danielson Familie (No, it’s not spelled family) is an avante-folk band from New Jersey. They started  utting albums out in the 90’s on, the then new, “Tooth n Nail” label. They put out some of the most odd, yet catchy, music I have ever heard. This movie is a documentary, of sorts, on the band, which also highlights non-family “Familie” member, Sufjan Stevens (a brilliant singer songwriter in his own right). Still, that is not really what this is about. While the movie is a documentary, and the segments seem to run: Concert footage, interview with a family member, musings from Daniel Smith (head of the band) and then interviews with people after concerts. This movie is about more, it’s about trying to do something that is truly original, in a world where there is “nothing new under the sun”, and still have it be honest, relevant and point people to Jesus.

    How Was It?

    I loved it. At times it definitely has the “Napoleon Dynomite” feel going on. There is a great section that has family outsider, band member, Chris telling his story. The sequence is animated by Tom Eaton. This movie feels like you are hanging out with some off- kilter (in a fun way) people who seem unintentionally, or more unobtrusively, inspirational.

    Is it Good for Kids?

    It’s not fast passed enough for most younger children who are used to cartoons, but it is great. The only caution is that two of the interviewed concert attendees use 1 bad word each. (a woman quotes a review
    that said “If you like this band you’re an …..” and a man who says he’s in a metal band uses the F word. No one uses the Lord’s name as a cuss word.)

    What About Spiritual Issues?

    This is one of the happiest parts of the film. These people live their lives recognizing that God is real. They use their gifts to glorify Him and point others to him. They are not your typical “Rah Rah Jesus” band, but they do not hide anything. It makes you want to be who you are, just more so and to His glory.

    What is your recommendation?

    I hope everyone gets a chance to know the “Familie”. They are fun and encouraging and may even challenge your taste in music, the way you live your life and your thoughts on Jesus in your day to day.

    High School Musical

    November 11, 2008

    What Is It?

    This is a Disney Channel original movie that is very popular. It is most likely just another schlocky vehicle for them to groom no-named stars into personal properties like they did with Lindsay Lohan. Disney can then put these actors in their other shows pretending that’s a big deal until we believe they are real actors and go to see them in movies, but I digress. It’s the story of a Basketball player (Zac Efron) and Science Whiz (Vanessa Anne Hudgens) who are pressured into a Karaoke contest on vacation and find they can sing Bubble gum ballads together.

    Then when school gets back, the mom of the Science whiz has re-located with her daughter and they are now both in the same school. So they consider trying out for the school musical together but this would involve the social sin of breaking out of the perceived cast of their clicks. So now they have incurred the wrath of the Basket Ball Team, the Science  Team and the singing brother and sister duo that always play the leads. (Ashley Tisdale & Lucas Grabeel) Thus the moral tale of star crossed lovers (likers ?) plays out through the social jungle of a high school who does not like musicals, but is willing to break out in song every couple of scenes.

    Hay…. What are we supposed to think about Grabeel’s “hat boy” character, Ryan Evans?

    (Among other clues, he is the only featured male character not paired off with a girl at the end.)

    How Was It?

    With the amount of merchandise with the HSM moniker, the actual high schools preforming this and the 2 sequels in the works, this would have to be something amazing. The amazing part is that people watch it, and more than once. (This is going to be nothing more than ranting from here on in. If that amuses you then feel free to keep reading, if your goal in reading this is to be better informed, then skip down to the next section.)

    This moral tale tells us that everyone should be allowed to try what they want and follow their heart… unless you are not good looking or pop-princess fashionable. In the middle of the high handed moralistic drivel we get the try-out, where we are invited to laugh at the “Bad” singers. They are the only people in the movie who do not look perfect. Some can’t sing and are discourage from ever trying again. Others are trying operatic or beatnik styles. That is not cool here, so they are freaks and must be dismissed. We never see these desirable teens again, so we are now able to move to non-judgmental unity. A skater admits to his buddies that he plays the cello. He then pulls it out to show that it is cool, of course the cello playing is over dubbed by a guitar because no one in the demographic actual thinks cello playing is cool. Then the try-outs have a couple who have practiced all there life, rearrange the songs so style fits a “musical”, added costumes and choreography and preform their hearts out. The competition is a kid who sings in the shower and a girl who sings in her church choir, who preform the songs as nondescript pop-ballads while they so artfully “just stand there”. Obviously if you are putting on a stage show, you pick no talent un-original upstarts to be the lead and make the live and breath performers (who were quite good) the understudies. They can sing, but so
    could the others who could also act, dance, and add theatrics to the part…

    hum… I wonder.. Oh well..

    Is it good for kids?

    There are no cuss words or violence. Amazingly, all the outfits seemed to be covering all of the actors.

    What about Spiritual issues?

    There is a reference to the lead singing at church but nothing comes of it. None of the church girls many stresses ever leads to anything, like prayer. Though when her friends (who are all the smartest kids in school) are trying to tell her to stay away from the basketball player, they appeal to evolution and it is just accepted as correct. Of course it’s a Disney movie, so everyone comes from a single parent household with out cement.

    What is your recommendation?

    Morally, there is much worse out there, but still, it’s dopey and unrealistic even in it’s core values and how it plays them out. Kids will like it the same way kids who have been raised on nothing by microwave chicken nuggets and Trix Cereal will be impressed with Pixie Sticks. High School Musical is not worth it. There have got to be better teen musicals out there.

    (Maybe add The Sound of Music, Godspell, and even Danielson a Family Movie , to their diet?)

    The Q&E Review show will look at High School Musical 3 (or HSM3 for those in the know) next week!
