"To Barry Re: TRON & other films"
The 'Christ' Theme is used throughout
literature and movies, everyone recognizes it, even if they say they
don't believe in the reality of it.
As to TRON, I just read two
different reviews from Christian sources which totally missed/ignored
the very obvious themes in this movie! To me, that is scary. It was
very obvious they just didn't 'get it'. Wow.
I really hope some
of you Doves will watch Tron and give me your assessment. My daughter
and I kept whispering to each other during the film, and we both
thought/saw the same things. I don't see how Christians, who write
articles reviewing movies could miss the major points this film does.
My friend who introduced me to 5 Doves even said that at one of the
major lines of the movie, he KNEW we'd be talking about it!
all the talk of 'transhumanism' and the melding of humans with 'other'
things, from artificial intelligence to 'alien' (read: demonic)
components....and the stuff with CERN opening a 'portal'...this movie
is like a neon sign!
So, please, anyone who's seen it, let me know what you thought.
loved the movie, as I said, it was visually stunning, amazing CGI, and
the story was a very real message, with some really scary undertones
that I still don't know for sure what 'side' they were taking. I intend
on watching it again to suss it out.
Oh, before I forget, I'm
planning on finally seeing Disney's movie "Tangled" today. It is the
Rapunzel fairy tale, but I mostly want to support lead voice actor Zac
Levy...he's an awesome Christian guy, who's never hidden his faith, and
has really done well in 'Hollywood'. :)
