15 Movies to See in 2008

Marc T. Newman (Ph.D., MovieMinistry.com) presents his list of 15 movies to see in 2008.

Instead of looking behind, I prefer to look ahead at films that might represent interesting ministry opportunities for those people who use film for outreach, or to create teachable moments … Keep in mind that I have yet to see any of these films. The speculations built into this preview are based solely on articles that have appeared about these films, their trailers, and plot synopses … Keep in mind, also, that release dates are always subject to change by the studios, and many of these films are yet to be rated.

So, here are MovieMinistry’s Fifteen Films to Look for in 2008 (Click on the link to read Marc’s synopses and commentary for each of the films.)

  1. VeggieTales Presents The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything – January 11
  2. Penelope – February 29
  3. Horton Hears a Who! — March 14
  4. Inkheart – March 21
