Transition to New Venture

Hi everyone!

As you may know by now, we’ve scaled back our movie and series reviews to focus on a new direction for Box Office Revolution. Because of this, we will be moving most of our operations over to YouTube.

On our YouTube channel, we’ll be taking Box Office Revolution in a slightly different direction while still maintaining our commitment to holding the Christian entertainment industry to high standards.

New Review Standards

Hello readers,

Given the recent uptick in standards with the Christian entertainment market as well as the influx of higher-quality movies and series, the Box Office Revolution team is altering its review standards.

To receive a full review, a film or season of a series must have a budget of at least $5 million. Alternatively, a movie can receive a full review if it receives a cumulative rating of 4 points while a season of a series can receive a review with a cumulative rating of 5.5 points.

These updates will be added to our review scale.

Looking for a Way to Entertain Your Kids…and Yourself?

Author’s Note: This is not a paid advertisement of the AIO Club, just a friendly recommendation.

Hey all! If you’re looking for a way to entertain your kids and yourself with clean, quality content, look no further than Adventures in Odyssey! The online Adventures in Odyssey Club (AIO Club) has a free 30-day trial available that gives you access to all of their audio drama albums, exclusive bonus content, and their animated videos. The website is easy for kids and adults to navigate and has a fun layout.

Insider’s tip: Use Firefox to listen to episodes, not Google Chrome. The website acts buggy on the latter.

All you have to do to get access to loads of free, family-friendly entertainment is make an account and start listening! A pro here is that the account doesn’t require a credit card number, so an older kid could make one on their own. The avatar choices are a bit limiting, but that’s just my opinion.

Here’s the link to the AIO site: https://www.oaclub.org/

We have loved listening to Adventures in Odyssey since childhood, and recently started listening again when the pandemic struck. It’s a great way to use your afternoon free time wisely! Here are some tips from a veteran Odyssey fan on the best selection of AIO episodes:

  • The first ten albums or so have simple plotlines, but there’s nothing really wrong with them.
  • Albums 11-13 are forgettable, but may appeal to some audiences.
  • Album 14 has some priceless comedy, especially the License to Drive episode.
  • Albums 19 and 21 are good.
  • Albums 22-25 are very good, even if Blackgaard is a strawman villian.
  • Pretty much everything else is very good as well after album 25 (except for Back on the Air), until you finish album 57.
  • The most recent albums after 57 are very politically motivated and not especially memorable.

With so many hours of clean, quality content at your fingertips, there’s something here for everyone! We hope you and your family come to love Odyssey as much as we have over the years, and that it leads to some great discussions between you and yours.

Stay strong,

BOSs (Box Office Sass)

New Year, New Content and New Features!

Image result for happy new year 2019

We here at Box Office Revolution have been busy at work to further improve the quality of our site and to provide new features/content for our readers.

What’s New?

We have now added Genres to the Movie Reviews page! We have done this so that you (our readers) can easily search for the genre of movie that you are specifically looking for.

There is also a designated page for Series Reviews now! This page contains reviews for sitcoms, soap opera’s/hope opera’s, mini series, etc. You can find it here or by going to the main menu.

Also now available is a page designated for polls, awards, new and interviews. You can find it here or by going to the main menu.

We have many very exciting ideas that we are currently working on for the year of 2019. (Spoiler alert we are currently working on the idea of having a page designated for Animation/Children’s christian film reviews, shhh!). Again we are very excited for what God has in store for us and our readers this new year. Don’t forget to vote on your favorite christian movie from 2018 here. Also please feel free to take our readers survey so we can know how to better improve this site and to let us know what ideas you have, you can find it here or at the bottom of the home page. A very happy new year to all of you and remember the purpose of this site is to provide honest opinions and reviews of christian films and series. This is because we feel that some of these movies that are made in the name of Jesus and Christianity could use more work and or are not pointing people to Christ. However, if the gospel and the name of Jesus are shared and repentance is found, never mind the acting nor the quality of production and the budget. Repentance and belief in Jesus Christ is what matters. These are the kind of movies that we are looking for. Thanks and God bless!

Send Us Your Movie!

Are you an independent Christian film maker? Has your church made a movie? Send it to us and we will review it and get the word out about it!

If you are unable to upload your film, email me at the same address to see if we can work something out. Please note that your film must be at least 30 minutes long for us to review it.

We can’t wait to see what the hidden geniuses of Christian film have to offer!
