As was announced a week ago, Let There Be Movies is closing up shop here and merging with Reel World Theology. While we’re very excited to be moving onto new and bigger things, it’s tough to let go of something you’ve invested so much time and effort in. In our three years we’ve reviewed over 200 movies, compiled over 40 lists and ranted on about 50+ random things. The idea for LTBM was sparked from an idea by Gene at an apologetics conference in 2012 and grew to what it is today with a solid audience of Facebook, Twitter and WordPress followers. We thought a nice send-off would be to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve published over the years and pick one each that was our most favorite. Hopefully you’ve read a lot of these, but if not, please check them out.

We’ve previously listed off our favorite on-screen adaptations of books, now we’re thinking about stage to screen adaptations. We’ll each give our top three picks, and we’d love to hear some of your additions as well!
