Every once in a while… ok… maybe it happens often… A Christian Movie will make it to theaters before I even realize it is coming. If I would have known about this one I would have written about it soon. Valentines Weekend is upon us and many couples like to go see movies that tie in with the theme of Love. For some of these couples you might think the only option is “Fifty Shades of Grey”… well, for you readers who are looking for a movie that doesn’t include over 20 minutes of graphic sex or who like their films with less sadism there is an option! Well… if it is playing in a theater near you.
A Christian Romance by the name of Old Fashioned has the guts to open up against the “Grey” film! This brings a smile to my face but what makes me smile even more is that the advertising campaign takes that fact head on. One of the trailers actually pokes fun at the fact that it is NOT 50 Shades of Grey and as I watched that first trailer I can tell you… I wanted to see it! I am not a fan of romances and most of the time I find them boring, however this trailer makes me want to see the movie just to reward an awesome trailer!
Now, I understand that trailer doesn’t show much of the story. Well, Below you will find a more serious trailer about the themes and story of the film. If this movie interests you, go see it! For some of my Michigan friends I have already done some of the work for you. It is playing in Grand Rapids, Grandville, Grand Blanc, Lansing and Midland. For you New Yorkers you can chose between New York City and Albany. I know, Sad showing New York! For my PA friends you also only have two to chose from but no place I recognize as having close friends near by. Go ahead! No matter where you are check HERE to see if it is playing near you!
Keep in mind, I have not seen this movie and I do not know about it’s quality, nor will I have a chance to review it anytime soon but if you happen to see it before me. Let me know what you thought of it!
Common! That “50 Shades” trailer deserves some buzz!
