    Q4. A movie is about the life of Jesus. I think it's impressive, and is worth considering. We should think it through.

    1. Film About Jesus – The Life of Jesus - Reflect on This
    2. Film About Jesus – The Life of Jesus - Thought Provoking
    3. Film About Jesus – The Life of Jesus - Worth Considering
    4. Film About Jesus – The Life of Jesus - Worth Thinking
    5. Film About Jesus – The Life of Jesus - Deserving Deep Consideration
    6. Film About Jesus – The Life of Jesus - Much to Contemplate
    7. Film About Jesus – The Life of Jesus - Making You Think a Lot


    For the bold part, which ones are correct? Which one do you prefer?

    None of the parts in bold type sound good to me.

    Do you really need to say 'A Film About Jesus – The Life of Jesus'?

    How about keeping it simple with 'A thought-provoking film about the life of Jesus'?

    Thank you so much. It's not a sentence.

    The former two parts must be included.

    Just think about the third part~

    In that case, I'd have to repeat that none of the third parts work for me.

    That is what you thought about the movie after you saw the movie. If you say that to people before they see the move, you are doing one of these:

    1. giving a review of your own movie
    2. telling people what they should think
    3. both

    My reaction is mistrust, or taking insult, or both. My generation in the US mistrusts self-promoters, and we are insulted when people tell us what to think. Other people are different, and may not be offended.

    But either way, this is an advertising question, not a grammar question. Since I have no experience in advertising, I have no idea about "which is better".

    "Thought provoking" is the one that works for me.
