"Alone" film opens in theaters on Father's Day

Recommended Posts

I've got KMOX Radio (a major Midwestern station with a powerful reach, think WGN in Chicago-style power) playing in the next room and half-hear a dramatic ad about a family who stuck together against all odds .... yes, tell me more ... listen, listen, listen and there it is, the announcer's classical tones say "God" and it is - (drumroll please) - "Alone Yet Not Alone," opening in theaters on Father's Day!

And here's the website the ad refers us to:

aloneyetnotalone.com/

Offered without any more comment, since AFAIK James Leininger has withdrawn support of Doug Phillips, and since the movie's song was withdrawn from the Oscars competition after being protested on some reasonable point IIRC.

I've got other plans for Sunday, but if I didn't, I know where I'd be - the Cineplex closest to the Zes homestead. Bet you there will be Niednagels and Thomases and Servens, oh my!!! :P

I want to go picket outside a theater, with a sign that says, "Restore Doug Phillips' scenes," just to see what happens.

I kid, I kid -- my sign would say "Kelly Greyson is a Leininger!"

:D

I look forward to seeing more inane comments on the IMDb site. Here's the IMDb listing -- guess which trivia item and keywords came from me. :wink-kitty:

Well done, thoughtful. :clap:

Oh, how I love the inanity (and inSanity) that is IMDb. :lol: This 'review' has got to be the work of someone closely connected with the film:

"This is, perhaps, the finest cinematic achievement in modern history. The acting is on par with legendary performances like Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh in "Gone with the Wind." The cinematography is simply breathtaking. Ansel Adams could not have produced more visually arresting imagery. Bruce Broughton's exhilarating score is his finest work since his days as a studio composer for the original "Hawaii Five-O." The historical accuracy and gripping drama will leave you breathless for more and more sequels. I simply cannot recommend this movie enough, or at all. It deserves to play in every American movie house around the clock for the next five years."

:laughing-rolling:

Or a parody.

And no, it wasn't me.

This review was written by Doug (Phillips who is a tool) or one of his minions, or by someone here. I'm thinking the latter. Fess up!

:embarrassed: I've read so many breathless odes to this film that I didn't even think about this one being a parody. Of course, their mention of Ansel Adams should have clued me in: what SOTDRT educated fundie would even know who Ansel Adams was? :doh:

I agree. It's a parody of the over-the-top reviews on IMDB when it's a religious-themed movie.

I love the part about the theme from the original Hawaii 5-0 as it is my ring tone. ('m a total sucker for the original show and am still hopelessly in love with Jack Lord, even though he is no longer with us)

This sort of gives it away, doesn't it?

That's what I get for being a skimmer when I read it -- I didn't even see that.

Annnnnd...Perry Coghlan weighs in on his Facebook page!!

Perry: "Here's my review of Alone Yet not Alone the movie: Stink bomb. Save your money."

Subsequent comments:

Darby Stouffer: A poorly made Christian movie????

Perry C. Coghlan III: I know it's hard to believe

Perry C. Coghlan III: I'd sit through a Billy Ray Cyrus "Doc" marathon before I watch that stinker again.

Jeremiah J Warren: Did they edit Doug out?

Perry C. Coghlan III: I don't know. Since I'm not planning on watching it again, I guess I'll never know.

Jeremiah J Warren: Ooh, I thought you saw the final version

Dante Dakota Tremayne: Christian movies are always so bad that I don't even bother to watch them the first time. I have to get a lot of good recommendations from folks I trust to judge the movie as a MOVIE and not on the message before I will even attempt it. Sad, but true.

Perry C. Coghlan III: True, I only saw this because I was working the room it played it at the Film Festival....

Susan Faulkner Disharoon: Oh what a shame! The book is fantastic!!

Ryker Seargeant: The best Christian movie yet is Mom's Night Out.

Brantley Harris Disharoon: Doc...that's funny.

Marian, you beat me to it! :lol: Oh, they're such Cool Kids, aren't they? Give me a break, Darby-- Doug was at your damn wedding just a few months ago! And Perry, all we heard from you for years and years was how "awesome, dude" the freakin' SAICFF was. But now you're such hipsters and so above it all. GMAB!

Gee, if you search “Life in a Shoe†for “San Antonio Christian Film Festival,†Kim sure had a different opinion of Christian films back in the day than Perry does now:

inashoe.com/?s=san+antonio+independent+christian+film+festival

Some quotes:

“Christian film-making has come of age! The title of the post says it all for this year’s Christian film festival. That statement by Doug Phillips was met with a deafening round of applause.â€

“I’m hardly a social butterfly, but I always look forward to the film festival. The films are exciting...â€

“The unprecedented announcement comes during a sustained crescendo for independent Christian films.â€

“R.C. Sproul Jr. told us this year’s crop of films was the best he had seen in 4 years of judging...â€

WHAT??? I guess now that Darby is out from under her father’s umbrella of protection she thinks she is free to get all snobby and high-falutin’. Well, honey, I remember when you were in the audience drooling over Kirk Cameron like all the other VF morons.

Thank you for finding and posting this, Marian!

Annnnnd...Perry Coghlan weighs in on his Facebook page!!

Perry: "Here's my review of Alone Yet not Alone the movie: Stink bomb. Save your money."

Perry is one of the few people from the fundie world that I might expect to try the "watch it while stoned" trick for a bad movie. :hookah:

Jeremiah J Warren: Did they edit Doug out?

Perry C. Coghlan III: I don't know. Since I'm not planning on watching it again, I guess I'll never know.

Never mind that, Perry -- you saw it before he was edited out, and I want to know what Dougie's scenes were like, dammit!

Susan Faulkner Disharoon: Oh what a shame! The book is fantastic!!

:roll:

Ryker Seargeant: The best Christian movie yet is Mom's Night Out.

Ryker shouldn't make jokes about bad movies -- he was in that magnum opus, WANTED:

Bummer--I'll have to drive from NYC to Rochester NY to see this movie, as the evil Godless liberal cinemas around here aren't showing it. I guess there's just not as much of a draw now that Doug (Phillips who is a tool)'s scenes have been cut.

:cry:

there's got to be an unedited cut somewhere. :twisted:

i'm guessing closeups in the woods at night with muddy face camo... dark, intense staring into the middle distance...

plotting to save the maidens from distress. :shrug:

p.s. i can't stand any historical movie that puts the women in current hair and makeup.

Actually, I do vaguely remember seeing a picture, very early on. I think his character, Colonel Mercer, only met the sisters after they were brought back into white society. So it was fancy-dress uniformed Doug, not manly-man Doug.

I would not watch this movie even if somebody paid me. I have a feeling it might provoke a vertigo attack.

If Doug (Phillips who is a tool) were still in this movie, I would get as stoned as possible, recruit as many FJers as possible, and howl with laughter through the entire thing. It would be a blast, although I suspect I'd be kicked out pretty quickly since I would feel compelled to scream "TOOL!" every time he appeared on screen.

Because Doug Phillips is a tool.

There is not enough Ativan in the world that would "loosen me up" enough to watch that movie. Oh, and, yeah, Doug Phillips is a tool

This film is being promoted in homeschooling communities as a film made for homeschoolers by homeschoolers, and as this huge triumph for homeschool families.

Is it too much to ask to be somewhat historically accurate and not use brownface on faux "natives" if you're going to blab to everyone that you're homeschooled? It's not like there isn't already a stigma!

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
