If you saw “Is Genesis History?” last week, then chances are, you walked away from the theater as thrilled as we were to see biblical truth taught regarding Creation and a young Earth in such a spectacular way. Thanks to people like you, the movie was the #1 film in the U.S. on Thursday. The movie was such a success that two encore showings of the film have been granted: this Thursday and next Tuesday at 7:00 PM. Check http://isgenesishistory.com/theaters to see if a theater near you will be showing the film again. Read >>
A ONE-NIGHT EVENT IN THEATERS
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23 ONLY
A wide range of sharable advertisement materials and a “Find a Theater” tool are available here.
My family and some friends went to see the new “Jungle Book” movie and we weren’t disappointed. I’ll go ahead and tell you that I give it 9 out of 10 stars. I’ll quickly explain why it gets 9 stars and not 10 at the end of my character reviews. Keep in mind that I won’t mention every movie character, but, best as my memory serves me, the only characters that you won’t see returning to the big-screen are the three vultures from the end of the original. I would have liked to have seen them, even if it were only for the value of their song.
Having said what I have already said, the movie gives credit to Rudyard Kipling’s book (one of many that I have never read) but I’m sure the average viewer (myself included) won’t be able to keep from comparing it in their mind to the classic animated movie from years gone by. Before I get into some comparisons and contrasts, consider this paragraph as your spoiler warning (I’ll try not to reveal any major moments – at least not all of them). Continue reading
When the topic of treating people like cattle comes up in the tense conversation between Alexander (the “time traveler”) and the “mentally higher evolved being” in the movie version of H.G. Wells’ story “The Time Traveler”, the “uber brained” individual responds with:
Who are you to question 800,000 years of evolution?
Indeed! If evolution is the “creator” of us all, who are any of us to question what evolution drives us to do, even when people/organizations such as “Planned Parenthood” treat slaughtered human beings like candidates for the meat market?
Must-read: Rick Kelley’s article on his blog, “50 shades of rationalization.” Don’t miss a single word of it.
It’s the award giving time of the year for Hollywood and all of its media branches. It’s a time when the “people choose” and all the little gold-plated men go to the brightest stars of the multibillion dollar industry. After all, who doesn’t like a good pat on the back? But at the end of the day, the awards given out show more than just who’s “number one” – they show the true heart of Hollywood.
Look at the movies that win. You don’t have to watch the shows to find out. The news channels fall over themselves trying to tell you about it. The movies that win the vast, vast majority of the time are ethically, morally and socially rotten. They continually glorify and celebrate murder, prostitution, hate, violence, profanity, fornication, organized crime, greed, theft, lying and adultery. Whichever movie pushes the envelope the best usually ends up finding its name inside the envelope to get the award.
“But the actors and actresses deserve an award because they make it look so real”, some say. Well I say if you want to see real then get out on the streets where real people suffer because of the things that Hollywood celebrate! But that wouldn’t be any fun would it? The claim of, “movies help to escape reality”, while reality is made up of the actions and behaviors that the movies celebrate just don’t make sense to me.
Never forget, what goes in the heart comes out of the heart. This is true on a personal, community, cultural and national level. And if one considers the poor and disgusting behavior of people on the big or little screen award worthy, then that award helps to reveal what the heart really values. So who’s the winner of our heart going to be? It’ll be whoever we lay out the red carpet for.
“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.” (Matthew 15:18-19 – NKJV)”
