If so, I won't watch it. Nor will I watch movies that are basically self-congratulatory entertainment for people already immersed in christian pop culture.

No, but I did see Flywheel, Facing the Giants, and Courageous by that studio. Flywheel wasn't bad, but not particularly good either. Facing the Giants was well-made, but I don't like the message. "If you FAITH hard enough, God will make the other team cheat so that yours will win by default! Oh and your wife is barren because you haven't prayed madly enough yet."

Courageous is about a total heel of a man whose kid has to die before he decides to be a dad to his other kid, which role boils down to teaching one's kids to conform to a particular set of cultural virtues. Real "courageous" there, pops. It could actually have made a good movie if they'd made the protagonist an anti-hero, but as a straightforward hero I sort of despised him.
