    Something Old:
    Skye’s: Sister Act
    Josh’s: Rudy
    Something New: Father Stu
    Josh’s Proposal: Father Stu is a movie worth seeing, but misses the mark, because it never really answers the question why did Stu come to faith? Or more specifically, why did he become a priest?
    Skye’s Proposal: Father Stu is an example of what Paul was told, when God said “My strength is made perfect in your weakness”

    Skye’s Proposal: Turning Red had really admirable goals but failed to deliver on them.
    Kaitlyn’s Proposal: It’s a really moving coming of age story, has a really beautiful message about family and especially Mother-Daughter relationships, but it unfortunately is caught up in an American Christian Culture war about identity and self actualization that causes us to misinterpret it.

Enjoyable

Borrowed always helps me visit the classics (how have I not seen some of these!) and Blew opens the door to some amazing current stuff (like Blockbuster wow thanks Jason!)

Great movie podcast

Good thoughts on movies delivered in an entertaining way. I don’t always agree with the “proposals,” but their conversations always intrigue me about the movies they’re talking about.
I appreciate that you are willing to go into “spoilers” for the sake of a good conversation. It may not be how everyone likes to watch movies, but I enjoy them more if I know a bit about the plot before going in.
My only critique is that it’s too short! I would love more in depth thoughts about the films.
