I was really excited with the opportunity to try and review CrossFlix.
Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed with the service. Most of the movies were ones I’d seen on other sites, but the biggest problem was that some of the movies weren’t even Christian.
My take on the matter is, it’s one thing to say that all of your movies are clean and family-friendly. But if you’re saying you’re a Christian streaming service, you should play only Christian movies.
One movie, in particular, still leaves me scratching my head. Pastor Shepherd, while hilarious, really made NO sense. It was NOT a Christian movie. If anything, it mocked Christians, at least televangelists.
A Strange Brand of Happy had potential, but I think it missed the mark.
My favorite movie, which I’d seen offered on other services but had never watched, was Mr Scrooge to Meet You. It was not the best acted, (though I loved the lead actor) but it was fun and had a great Christian message.
A couple other things that I appreciated: The Crossflix original Bible study series and the Torchlighter and other Christian cartoons. Many families will enjoy the classics, like Shirley Temple movies and Danny Kaye movies.
