I honestly think this is going to be a problem

Near and I are a bit at odds over this, he wants to see them to see what they say and put...I don't want to give them my money.

If executives make a bundle they'll assume it's what people want to see.

Are all of these going to be in mainstream theaters? I know the Noah film will be...But I won't pay to see Russell Crowe in anything -- I think he's a shitty actor who got more buzz than his ability afforded him.

I believe Son of God is. I don't know about Hovinds mess.

That's just disturbing. I want to believe that it's just the ebb and flow of things, yanno?

Hollywood typically sees one thing that makes a bit of dough and seems to rush to put out more of the same.

I honestly hope you're right.

Maybe we need to work on funding more secular movies however, counterbalance lol.

If they know that another movie is fiction...why wouldn't they then think these movies are also fiction? Depending on the level of indoctrination, it could be a good thing.

I tend to look at it this way. 80-90% of people have some type of religion, whether they're mild or heavily indoctrinated.

The people who attend church once or twice a year won't mind it at all and will likely never question for a moment it's not true. Most people don't care enough.

I think that's the target audience. They're not trying to convert the atheist who's made up their mind. They're trying to reach the people who don't give a shit -- the type who just says I believe god is real -- but I don't really care about the details. The people who show up at Easter and Christmas -- the people who are impressionable and easily wow'd by a big screen production.

Look that silly Mel Gibson's two hour snuff film the Passion...How many people saw it? How many churches is it still shown each Easter? Mel Gibson's batshit rantings about Jews hasn't tarnished that image either. I know plenty of Fundiy churches that insist on showing the film to little kids so they can understand how badly jebus suffered.

It's sickening.

RE: Christian movie push...
Considering I just bought and watched Jesus Christ Superstar (a blast from the past), I just looked at it as entertainment. Of course, I looked at it as a story when I saw it in my teens and wore the grooves off the albums listening over and over again.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Don't forget This Is the End

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.
