In the 1930's Minister James K. Friedrich said, "The motion picture camera, like the printing press, is a gift from God. We can use it for God's purpose."

Dare to Critique with a Few Jokes Along the Way with Kevin McCreary

We have a fun episode here with my guest, Kevin McCreary, the young man behind the YouTube Channel -- Say Goodnight Kevin. Kevin is, what I would call, an entertaining film critiquer. You heard me right -- not a film critic -- a film critiquer. Kevin is like a good script doctor who has a keen eye to tell your story back to you in order to point out it's weaknesses, problems, and strengths.

And, what's more, Kevin is wildly entertaining.

Film criticism is, generally, not very exciting stuff for the average person. Our relationship to film critics is the same as our relationship to Consumer Reports. It's rare to find entertaining film criticism. Remember the TV show Siskel and Ebert? Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert were both informative and entertaining, not because they were fun, but because they were serious -- and they were often pitted against each other on merits of a film. They were far more entertaining when they disagreed.

Kevin McCreary is serious and fun. You're always guaranteed some laughs as he unwinds the film to offer his keen insight and constructive criticism -- and I emphasize constructive because he's doesn't just criticize films, he is instructive.

His motto is -- "Holding Christian films to the same standards as Hollywood."

As I've said in previous episodes, the faith-based film genre needs good film critics in order for it to grow and thrive. Kevin stands among the best.
