If you’re reading Through a Screen Darkly, you’ve probably come across some of my “war stories” about the outrageous letters and emails I’ve received over the years as a Christian film reviewer.

I wish I could say things are getting easier. They’re not.

Here are a few examples of the letters coming in to Christianity Today Movies in response to the posting of the “Cream of the Crop” top ten list, and the “Most Redeeming Films” top ten list.

If you agree with these letters, no need to send your own. There are plenty where those came from.

If you disagree, how about writing a quick note to ctmovies@christianitytoday.com? Our editor, who believes intensely in the method and mission of CT Movies, is probably feeling a bit dizzy from all of these attacks.

You people are a joke with your Critics’ Choices. The devil lives in the extremes. Get back to the cross.

I’m really surprised that you didn’t include Facing the Giants on your list. I personally think it is the best movie I’ve seen over the past decade!

Your Critics’ Choice Awards saddens me. The majority are rated R and PG-13 and so is it any wonder that we are dealing with such immorality in our churches. I can’t help but wonder how we pridefully think we can watch hours of sexual content and violence and not have it affect our minds. Violence has become the standard for entertainment and we no longer comprehend how our great Lord will ultimately deal with sin. With our focus so much on grace and understanding our culture, I fear we are becoming like it. However, I did enjoy The Queen!

I feel very disturbed that you would rate Little Children in your 10 Top Movies of 2006. Are you not supposed to be a Christian magazine? What is wrong with you? I will pray God conflicts your hearts and opens your eyes.
