At the Movies

In this week following the Academy Awards, I wanted to share with you a couple of articles on the state of Hollywood today.

First is a commentary by Chuck Colson, who I think sums up very well as to what Hollywood's worldview is. And I agree with him that as Christian filmgoers (and/or the parents of young filmgoers) we need to recognize the worldview and philosophies that filmmakers are trying to project on us and be more discerning in our viewing habits. Here's a link to his commentary titled And the Winner Is: Death, Depravity, and Dullness.

On a related note, I am very encouraged about a company called Walden Media, the people behind the new film . . . Because of Winn-Dixie and the upcoming epic The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, which is part of C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia. These people are hitting upon a formula that proves that you CAN produce movies that are family-friendly, offer a Christian worldview and be successful. I hope you will be on the lookout and support the movies produced by them.

To read more, here's a link to a column by Brent Bozell titled Wonderful 'Winn-Dixie', which talks about Walden's success.
