Blown through that Samwise money already, Sean?
I think it's kind of "Sidekick Syndrome," a term for all I know I just made up. Elijah and Viggo get roles in Jonathan Safran Foer adaptations and David Cronenberg movies, but Orlando, Sean and Rhys-Davies went right back to what they were doing before, which wasn't a lot. Same can be said for Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean (again, sorry Orlando) and probably a lot of other movies. For whatever reason, we still see Astin's face as Mikey or Samwise, but don't necessarily think of Elijah is "Frodo," just the guy who played Frodo in the movie. I dunno. Star Wars is an exception I guess, depending on who you thought the true protagonist of the original trilogy was..
I think of Elijah as Frodo. My theory is that it's less to do with who's the sidekick and who's not, or even who's the guy we most remember from the movie (in those instances where the sidekicks wind up being more interesting than the lead e.g. Han from Star Wars). Rather, it's simply a matter of whether the actor did anything else that's even half as memorable as his or her Big Role. Actors like Jim Carrey, Johnny Depp, DeNiro, or Jackie Chan, they've given so many memorable performances that it's impossible to see them as just one character. But Luke is Luke. Weasley is Weasley. And Sam is Sam, probably forever.
According to IMDB, he has been in such memorable films as Balto III, My Wife Is Retarded, and The Hero of Color City, that anthropomorphic crayon movie which was posted here last week.
blue vein steel
i think it also has to do with being really Christian. He's probably someone who won't take rolls with excessive cussing, or something like that. He has been in a couple explicitly christian films now

what's this one about then? Like Crash but with Jesus I guess...
Binro the Heretic
Are you talking about the David Cronenberg "Crash" or the other one?
The shit one with all that "Move Bitch" rapper.
So will they have a scene where they screw each other's crucifixion leg-scars?
that was a pretty hot movie in all honesty
Hell yeah it was! I saw it when I was twelve, which in retrospect was probably a bad idea.
That "this cross is gonna cost you!" chick is really cute; I hope she gets to be leg-girl.
Apparently, she was also on Veggietales, so I guess that makes her like the Tara Strong of Christians!
She reminds me of a blonde Crystal Lowe, so I bet she'd be into that sort of thing.

Are all of these actors born again, or are they just "Pray-for-Pay"?
you can appreciate something without having to communioncate it overtly for Christ's sake!

They sure are getting shrill lately.

If there is a God, then his love for us is so infinite that the deity will forgive those who do not believe in the deity, as well as those responsible for such an awful looking movie.

I might see this just for the guy under the steamroller.

"I was once asked, if you were ever accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?"
The trailer has already made clear he's being brought up on disciplinary charges for evangelizing to a dying man while working as a paramedic. His being Christian is irrelevant, he could be any religion, or none, and he'd face charges for preaching his ideology in that situation. Why are evangelical Christians so blatant when they lie about their persecution?
"I robbed a liquor store to pay for my mission to Africa. Why does the government persecute Christians just because they want to spread the love of Christ to the less fortunate."
"Didn't you just say you robbed a liquor store?"
"Doesn't ring any bells. Sounds like a lie by godless Muslims to me."

I love this new crop of Christsploitation movies. They're really enjoyable in an inane sort of way.
It's interesting. I used to work at an Episcopal church so it's a little different (Thanks Henry the 8th (!?!,)) but their slogan is "if you're looking for god, just look inside.." something along those lines. And I know that's a line in an Arcade Fire song, but they said it first. If it wasn't for the corny trailer music I would probably see this. What I did for the Church had nothing to do with religion, rather it was a needle exchange program and food pantry. I couldn't given less of a fuck what people were doing on Sunday, but the door was always open.

So it's like Magnolia, but instead of a frog rain, the climax features a downpour of...what? Crosses? Chick Tracts?

The few times that I've used the Redbox to rent a game, there was sometime either renting or returning "God's Not Dead". At least one of the times, it took the woman 5 tries to successfully insert the DVD into the slot. And there are only 4 potential ways that you can successfully fit it.

Wow. Mira Sorvino buried beneath washed up Rudy and washed up Jefferson D'Arcy. That's pretty awful.
Remember when she took a dick in the eye from a glory hole in that one movie? I miss her.

to be fair this looks like a return to the less hateful, political and virulent form of christian propaganda of the 90's
