Opinion: Conservative Christian Movies

Well look here. Conservative Christian Movies!  My brother, the movie reviewing guy he is has started a new blog..Gee.. Looks like he was keeping it a secret from me. Now that I know he is blogging again I, of course, subscribed.

I always enjoy reading movie reviews from ANYBODY. But my brother’s christian conservative slant makes it that much more viable to study a movie. Is the movie really doing anybody good? Or simply pushing the boundaries as so many filmmakers and TV show makers do these days. We just got to show more to SHOCK people.

My bro has been reviewing movies and music for as long as I can remember. He is a prolific writer… If I could just convince him to move away from that typewriter, or 1980 word processor he uses and actually get a new computer and write for the web I do believe he could be a voice to be reckoned with.

Studying popular culture…Especially movies with consistent conservative christian (but not preachy) style of writing would do much good for the net. The internet needs good writers that deserve exposure. And I can always appreciate what he has to say…

A Christian Conservative and His Movies.
I can dig it…Can you?

Hancock – Super Hero Movie with a Twist

I like super hero movies… I saw Batman The Dark Knight Recently… Very Kewl.

Hancock is certainly a different take on Super Hero movies…This guy is a drunk with super human powers (like Superman) and has an attitude of FTW… If you know what im saying…

He is always tearing up stuff as he saves people and catches bad guys… He seems to have no guidance or morals when it comes to how he get’s the job done… Very interesting.

He then saves a guys life that becomes his friend and “consultant” on how to become a cherished super hero instead of one considered to be an “asshole”

I also checked out “The Bucket List ” this weekend… It was a moving story about 2 guys that are terminally ill and create a list of things to do before they “kick the bucket” Great story and photography as they travel worldwide… Almost holding back tears at the end… I hate that… :)

I took some Tylenol PM last night. I was playing my heart out on the guitar.. I played some of my favorite covers.. Paul Simon, Pink Floyd, The Beatles. Tossed in a few of my originals… I may play a little picnic gig thing in May.

You know, I think it sounded better because I was getting a little woozy from the “PM” part of the Tylenol. Or maybe it was in my head. In any case:

DO mild altering drugs enhance musical creativity?
Do they make you play better? You know there are tons of musicians out there that think so. And some of the best records in history were made while “under the influence.” Or that’s what is said in musician drug circles.

Some Bands on Drugs:

  • Beatles
  • The Who
  • Pink Floyd
  • David Bowie
  • The Doors
  • Greatful Dead
  • Rolling Stones
  • Jefferson Airplane
  • Led Zeppelin
  • ETC..etc..etc

But drugs have a way of telling lies. Maybe these people were talented and creative rather they were on drugs or not. Perhaps creativity is a giftDrugs are just taking the credit. What do you think?

It’s almost Valentines day… My love seems to have gone down the drain.. I dunno… I need to learn how to live by myself and love myself… Even if it’s just a little..

So What’s Love Got to do with it anyways? Is it just a second hand emotion?

That thrill of “falling” seems to be what I am addicted to… Love addiction… It’s hard to handle ya know?

What to do on Valentines day?
Perhaps sit at home and read…That’s a good idea huh?
