  2. The C. S. Lewis movie looks really good. I wonder why they would air it only one day and only in select theaters? How can we watch it after that day?

    1. Because it is a religious movie, it will probably air in Christian venues, but I guess it will be on VOD after that somewhere.

    1. It does look cheap and I think it is a Christian movie, so I'm surprised it is not airing in churches LOL

    2. Well, if it's overly religious, I'm out.

    3. Well it is about him finding faith in Christianity.

    4. You can still have a film about atheism/Christianity but not make the whole thing feel like religion is the sole focus. I hope they focus more on his life story than making the whole focal point about religion.
