"To Mario re: Evil movie "Devil""
I assumed as much about the rosary, since,
upon showing the new clip to my daughter, I caught a quick cut to an
obviously 'dead' hand holding Rosary Beads w/ Crucifix...how
My husband asked, 'why would anyone want to be
involved with a movie like that?' I told him, that even the principle
actors may not have a full grasp of what the movie was about. Since so
many scenes are shot out of order, and lines are rewritten, and the CGI
and editing are done after the fact, unless you are the 'star', or have
a hand in the making of the film, you may not get the whole picture.
really feel sorry for the extras and 'day players'...they show up on
set, no script, get told to 'walk here', 'sit there', and they may have
no idea what the movie is even about! When my daughter and I got to be
extras on a movie that we were fans of (from a canceled tv show), we
had no idea what 'story' was going on during the 'scene' we were in. My
daughter was even within earshot of the main actors and when I asked
her what they were saying (I was far enough away in a 'market place'
that I couldn't hear anything), she just said, 'it sounds like she is
upset, and he is mad...but I can't make out why or what is really going
on'. We just knew that 'the crew' was going into a market place. I
wonder how many Christians who make extra money as 'extras' (we met
alot of retired people who supplement their incomes that day on set),
who might be in a movie like that and are just in a street scene, or
are walking through an office space...never knowing they've 'played a
part' in such an evil film. In fact, in big name movies, they are so
closed lipped about 'spoilers', you may not even know you are in an M.
Night Sham-I-am movie, or a Johnny Depp film, since they give them fake
titles and you arrive and just walk where you are told. Those are the
ones I feel really need prayer, since they are just trying to make a
living and might be contributing to something so Anti-Christian and
never know it till after the fact.
My girls and I went to an
'open call' for 'extras' in a comedy movie about a 1970s basketball
team. We sat in bleachers and cheered when told to. Held signs we made
(I knew how to write in that 'mod' style!). We saw NOTHING to make me
believe it was anything but a 'family friendly' movie. When it finally
released, it was "R" rated!! I've still never watched it all the way
through. I fast forwarded to see if you can spot us in the crowd.
from personal experience I firmly believe that all 'Hollywood' needs
our prayers. So many people are influenced by it. I applaud the
Christians who stay true to their values and are able to work and not
compromise (the TV show Chuck has at least 3 Christians as main cast
members). But I'm sure even they need our prayers to deal with the
corruption that they are surrounded with daily.
I expect to see even more of these type movies popping up as time goes by, for as long as it goes by!
