Welcome to “What Would Jesus Watch?”, our summer podcast series overanalyzing the over looked genre of Christian Cinema.
Can a cynical satire about a Christian high school starring Mandy Moore actually teach us anything about our faith? That’s the question we try to answer as we explore the movie “Saved!” on this week’s episode.
Join Alex and Kate on the latest episode as they break down the cult hit from 2004 also starring Macaulay Culkin, Jena Malone and Mary Louise Parker. We talk about all the happenings at American Eagle Christian School including our conflicting opinions on Pastor Skip, the importance of prom and the real message of the movie. Plus Alex shares his theories about the original script and undercover Christians on the production team. All that as well as an in-depth analysis of the soundtrack in our new segment “KateTracks” on this week’s “What Would Jesus Watch”!
