Sky Captain & the World of Tomorrow

June 17, 2009

What Is It?

This is a very original homage to Hollywood’s history. A retro-sci-fi set in the 1940’s and made to look like it was made in the 1940’s with today’s technology. The film was shot entirely in front of blue screens with all the actors being real and the locations and robots being computer animated later. The film was then set to black and white and colorized. It’s the story of a spunky female reporter and a dashing pilot as they fight giant robots and try to discover where the robots come from and how they are linked to the disappearance and apparent murder of seven significant scientists.  The Cast includes Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and even a computer enhanced cameo by the late Sir Laurence Olivier. The film even shows you a bit of “The Wizard of Oz” in the beginning, and then makes clever reference to Wizard in the end.

   How Was It?

This is a lot of fun. The stylized “sets” and creatures are fascinating The film is a bit slower than your standard action adventure but this adds to the feel that your watching film from the 40’s with the older pacing. Be that as it is, a rather amazing film from the 40’s.

   Is It Good For Kids?

 Thought the younger audience may not appreciate the “retro” part, I think the visuals and story will keep them hooked. Still we have sci-fi violence, death, some sexual references, and the Lord’s name being taken in vain several times.

 You can check www.ScreenIt.com for a complete break down of elements shown on the screen.

How about Spiritual Issues?

These “Robots” are man made, not alien, which cuts down on a lot of the “sci-fi” issues. Still, Sky Captain and reporter Polly Perkins have an odd relationship that involves deception and cheating.

There are some Old Testament references. They visit a place called “Sangria” that is said to be called “Eden” in Hebrew

The more elaborate Biblical story reference is the ending. (So don’t read this part if you don’t want me to spoil it for you) The robots have been collecting parts for a rocket ship and two of every kind of animal so that, with two vials named Adam and Eve, The evil Dr. Totenkopf can start civilization over in space. The rocket will also destroy the world by setting fire to the atmosphere after launching. There is a quick line pointing out that the Dr. is “Playing God”.  

   What Is Your Recommendation?

As a fun film I would recommend this very original movie and I do look forward to this first time writer/director’s next project. Still, the spiritual issues are very weird. There is not enough either way to recommend or not recommend this film. (Much like the films of the 40’s.) I think I would just say “be mindful of this film.” If you are going to enjoy Sky Captain with your family, you may want to discuss the idea of letting “God be God” as well as issues about relationships afterward.

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith

May 5, 2009

What Is It?

This is the final segment of the culture shaping saga that began 28 years ago. Here we have the linking of the past to the future. We also have an experience that has brought families together as kids discover what was one of the biggest events of there parents own childhood. Now all of us can once again take time out of our busy lives for important things.. Like saying your sentences backwards in a Muppet voice, trying to speak like James Earl Jones in need of an inhaler, or more to the point, perfecting our Wookee call…

How Was It?

First – Jar Jar is only seen once, for a moment, and does not even open his mouth!

10pts right there!

Laying aside the fact that since the 1970’s we have known how this film will end, and just focusing on the idea that getting there is half the fun…. This is the best of the three. The effects are slick and keep moving, though some of the planet “sets” seem just too busy. Lucas still can not write dialog, but here is more cunning in his writing. We often only need to hear plot points and the last ten minutes he lets us see all the characters and wisely drowns out any talking with John Williams’ stellar music.

The opening battles and sequences with R2-D2 are some of the most fun you can have with these films. (Though in the next three films he has to be hoisted into his X-wing. Are his jets on the blink?)

The end adds some paired up scenes with similar battles and similar struggles matched up. (Though I still keep the “half the fun” thing in my head… they spent far too long on two simultaneous “light saber battles to the death” when we know that all 4 participants are still alive in the next film.)

Unfortunately the rise of the Darth Vader we all know and impersonate is rendered very cheesy with a shtick right out of Frankenstein followed by the standard Hollywood, discover your loved one is dead and howl NOOO as the camera pans up and away. Still for a huge budget amusement park ride of a film, with pounds and pounds of our culture’s mythology, this film will still deliver most far far away.. (And I find it an odd triumph that James Earl Jones goes uncredited here once again)

When all is said and done, in some small way, I too want to join with Yoda as he tries to cram all the emotion of Casablanca’s air plane scene into the touching epitaph “Chewbacca, Miss you I will.”

Is It Good For Kids?

This will depend greatly on your child. There are a lot of deaths here, though most of them are not totally shown. There are the same level of weird creatures as there are in the other films. (Though not as bad as Return of the JEDI)

The biggest disturbance here, (SPOILER) The Sith Lord sends Anakin, now christened with his famous pseudonym, in to kill the JEDI children that Yoda had been training. We only see him come in and menacingly ignite his light saber to the horror of the children, but it is talked about a lot, and we see other JEDI examining the children’s bodies. You can check www.ScreenIt.com for a complete break down of elements shown on the screen.

How about Spiritual Issues?

There are plenty of good lessons here, most notably that your actions accumulate and make you who you are. If you build on evil you will be consumed by it. We also hear the difference of living selflessly for others contrasted to the evil of only serving self. We see the allure of evil does not give you what it promises, and the promise comes in much the same package that the serpent in Eden used to present his offer…. and with that the worthwhile messages are done.

First these movies have been hailed as moral triumphs for there clear portrayal of good veers evil with its night and day distinction. If we go a little deeper into what it is saying, good and evil simply two sides of the same coin. It is personal strength and opinion that puts you on one side of the other.

Though many will compare “The Force” to the Holy Spirit, they are drastically different. The Spirit is not an “It” but a “He.” and He can not be “used.” He has his own personality and power. He grants power to those who are willing to come in line with His plan. “The Force” is better compared to Electricity. It is huge and powerful, but has no will and can be used at the handler’s discretion to what ever end. In God’s economy the power lies with God. Here the power is all on self.

Death is also a major theme in this film. Yoda gives a speech as he consoles Anakin who thinks his wife will die in child birth. He tells him (in his Yoda way) that we must not hold on to that which we are afraid to lose. Death is just a part of life. When people die they just become part of “The Force.” If we hold on to them, we only hurt ourselves with the attachment. This is classic Buddhism. Later on it becomes the “High Land” form of Buddhism when (SPOILER) Obi-Wan is told that Qui-Gon Jinn has learned to speak from the other side. Of course, both these views of death are very popular in our culture and many will latch on to them. Like wise they are both in direct opposition to the Bible’s teaching.

This leads us to Anakin. Anakin is called the chosen one. As we discovered inEpisode Ihe was born from a virgin; implying a very strong resemblance to the Messiah of the Bible. Here, as Obi-Wan is attacking his former pupil, the man now called Darth Vader says “If you are not with me, you are my enemy.” This is almost an exact quote from Jesus who said in Matthew 12:30 and Luke 11:23 “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me, scatters.”

This line of reasoning is thwarted by the hero, Obi-Wan as he scolds “Only a Sith deals in absolutes” (So why have you been talking about Dark Side / Light Side the entire film?)

It seems that Anakin’s belief in absolutes – this is never right, this is always wrong – is part of what leads him to the Dark Side. Thus, on some level unknowingly to the writer/director/produce, his hero has uttered the single most sinister line in the entire film.

Bible scholars will also recognize a reference to Mark 15:31 and note Darth Vadors “Death” and “Resurection”.

What Is Your Recommendation?

Though the other films (Episodes IV, V , and VI) proclaimed a philosophy counter to Christianity. This set has gone on the offensive. Lucas created and owns who many consider to be the supreme bad guy. He had studied multiple cultures images of the Devil to create Darth Maul, but now he has used the same power to make Darth Vader into a substitute Jesus. You can label me a “Sith” if you like (God know’s I have been called worse) but when Jesus lays down the absolutes, I want to be “For Him.”

If Lucas had put this much effort into linking a positive character to Jesus, this film would be heralded as an evangelical masterpiece. As it stands, it gives us a philosophy that doesn’t work in the spiritual or physical realms. He then puts them in a context that will help most people just let themselves be amused and not think about the words that they are letting into there heads. How ever you plan to handle this cultural phenomenon in your household, Be aware that the following the hero of the film, in the real world, would be more equivalent to falling for the deception of the dark side in there world.

SUPERMAN RETURNS

April 24, 2009

 

What Is It?

If comic books are America’s mythology, then Superman is our Zeus. He has been immortalized in every medium imaginable, but none so memorable as the films of Christopher Reeve. Now, Director Brian Singer takes his team that made X Men 1 and 2 so great, and brings back the Man Of Steel.

Here we find out that after Superman 2, our hero (Brandon Routh) went into space for years looking for remains of his home planet Krypton. This doesn’t matter at all, the point is, he was gone in the story like he has been gone in our lives, and our theaters, and now he is back. Of course the timing is great, because Lex Luther has also returned from his latest stint in jail. Now, in this tribute to all things great about the first 2 films (including a couple of plot references, the John Williams Theme music, a borrowed line, and borrowed footage to bring the late Marlon Brando back as Superman’s deceased Father) it’s once again time to “Look! Up in the sky….”

How Super Was It?

When the opening credits started, accompanied by that music, I was transported back to 5 years old. I remember all the grandeur and magic that was the Superman Mythos. Here it was again, and without losing one ounce of power from what I remember. If you have seen the original, and fear that it is more built up in your mind, they have compensate for that here. If you haven’t seen Superman before, this movie will make you wonder why you waited so long.

Beyond looking great, it flowed very well. It is interesting enough to keep going without having to blow something up every 5 seconds. It reminded me a lot of the “Incredibles” in this aspect. The acting? Kevin Spacey as Lex Luther seemed to have walked through the comic book on his way to the set. I would have liked to see more of him, but it wasn’t over done the way every comic book movie tries to recapture the Jack NickelsonJoker Experience“.

Yes, some of the best parts are in the trailer (especially the Lex Luther “come on, say it” line) But if you like the trailers, you will not be disappointed by the full product.

With all this great packaging you also get some ideas to think about that go a bit deeper than “Good vs. Evil” and “I wish I could Fly.”

As summer movies go, this has it all.

Is it Super for kids?

If your child is not scared by people in bloodless danger and is not prone to tie a bed sheet around his neck and jump from the second story window, then the visuals should be no problem. They do cut off the phrase “Holly Sh…” with a gun going off. (And yes, the big gun gets aimed at the big S on his chest.) Sadly, there were no explosions when Jimmy Olson took the Lord’s name in vain upon seeing Clark for the first time.

You can check the Super web page Screenit.com for a break down of everything that is on the screen.

There are some themes that may be harder to deal with. Lois Lane  (Kate Bosworth) has a son,  (Tristan Lake Leabu) and is only engaged to the dad. (James Marsden) This is not presented as even an issue. It also seems, despite her new relationship, she is actually still in love with Superman.

A bit weirder than that (BIG TIME SPOILER) the kid is found to be Superman’s son. Though it is never stated in this movie, it is alluded to that their relationship in the first 2 films brought forth this child. In Superman 2, Clark Kent gives up all his power to marry Lois. Then after realizing that the world needs him, he gives up his selfishness and dons his tights once more, using a Super kiss to make Lois forget there nuptials. I’m not sure that this explanation is better than the kid being a super love child.

Then….

What about Super Spiritual Issues?

If you have seen the ads, you have been prepared for this too. It has often been pointed out that Superman is the only son of his father in the sky who has come to save us. His fathers name is Jor-El (in Hebrew – Jor – the awe of El-God) and the name of the son is Kal-el, which in Hebrew means “voice of God.” He is then raised by a family that is not his own. All of this has been talked about and speculated upon, (in Godspell , Jesus himself wears a Superman shirt.) But here the movie brings the idea to the forefront.

First Lex Luther explains that he wants to be Prometheus, the Greek myth who brought fire to man, thus giving them technology. He leaves out the fact that Permethius “stole” the fire, which he also emulates. When it is pointed out that Lex is not a god, he retorts “Gods are selfish beings who fly around in little red capes and don’t share their power with mankind.”

We find out that the Article Lois Lane is winning the Pulitzer prize for is entitled “Why the world doesn’t need Superman.” The discussion around the article all explicitly surrounds the idea that the world does not need a “Savior”. (Superman’s answer to this could be equated a bit to a heavenly vision of the workings of God. Paul, John and now Lois.)

If this was not obvious enough, Superman flies through the sky remembering the words of his father “Even though you have been raised as a human being you are not one of them. They can be a great people Kal-el, they wish to be, they only lack the light to show them the way. For this reason above all, there capacity for good, I have sent them you, My only son.”

(Do we have a capacity for good? Do we want to be good? Do we need to be given an example of good to be good, or do we need to have our evil removed by sacrifice to provide for Jesus to indwell us and be good through us? Romans 3:10-12 & 8:6-7 or just read all of Romans.)

Toward the end (Spoiler) Lex Luther attacks Superman with a shard of Kryptonite, stabbing him in the side.

Of course (Bigger Spoiler) when Superman chooses to throw the Kryptonite laden land mass into space, thus saving America, he does it knowing it will kill him. As he drifts away from the land mass, his legs fall and his arms extend in the pose so familiar to church and movie goers.

Though at the time, it is unclear how it will end (Huge Spoiler) Lois finds the empty room that once housed the dead son of Jor-el.

What Is Your Super Recommendation?

Well, the movie is great, but there is more to a movie than how well done it is and how much fun it is to watch.

This film does continually raise the question “Do you need a savior?” and that is a question that more people need to be asking. In the film, those who say “no” are either homicidal men focused on greed, or Lois trying to hide her own need from herself.

Now, I don’t think it is offering a literal man in blue tights as a savior, and it does use a lot of Jesus symbolism. So the question becomes, are they pointing back to Jesus, or are they using Jesus and Superman to tell you to keep your eyes open for the next savior to come around. I don’t think that it goes far enough in either direction to give you anything more than to say “you need some sort of savior.”

I would be just fine with this if (spoiler) we were not dealing with this bazaar love triangle and pseudo divorce/dead beat dad thing.

Yes, Christ used the story of Jonah as pointing to His own death and resurrection, but Jonah’s negative actions are condemned in the story. The hardest thing about this movie is the morally ambiguous actions of Superman when everything else he does is categorically “good.”

Then there is the idea that we could be good, not by dealing with sin, but simply by being inspired by some one who is good.

If you are going to bring your kids, I would read the “spoilers” or see it first, and be prepared to discuss the issues this film raises and only sometimes resolves.

Still, if one of your friends have seen it, maybe he will have a question that you can answer with the Answer Himself. For that reason I would welcome this return.

I am Legend

April 21, 2009

What Is It?

Will Smith stars in this book adaption that seems to be, from the credits, more of a remake of the 1971 film adaptation, Omega Man, with Charlton Heston. This is a big budget thriller about a man who is the last living, healthy survivor of a world wide plague. He hunts deer and plays golf through the abandoned streets of New York that are starting to turn green with weeds and grass. Beyond the loss of all human companionship, the down side to this, is that the virus has turned the world’s population into zombie vampires who can only come out at night and feed on any blood they can get. While living in this frightening situation, with his dog, Robert Neville (Smith) is continuing his research to find a cure for this disease. When not studying his infected rats or protecting himself from zombie vampires, he goes to the video store to return one movie and rent another while having small talk with the mannequin patrons he has apparently set around the stores, as shoppers. Sort of a more thought out “Wilson” (Castaway).

How Was It?

This is what I call the “Thinking Man’s Shallow Movie”. Somewhere between the amusement park ride films like “Cellular” and “Collateral” and the spiritually deep “Exorcism of Emily Rose” lies “I Am Legend.” Right up front the movie lets you know that very often, something is going to jump out at you. By stealthily waiting for the moment after you though it would happen, even after you have figured out this formula, it continues to keep you tense and make you jump, however, this is not just a cheap walk through a scare house on film. Though the story is straight forward, the presentation of the information keeps you engaged and thinking… while waiting for the next thing to jump out at you. (Aerial shots become a welcome “breather”) There are also great touches like having the movie “Shrek” showing on Nevil’s TV, and the scene between Donkey and Shrek actually explains the scene you are watching.

I am not a Will Smith fan, but after “I Robot” and the excellent performance in this film I may be coming around. We see his family and quarantining of NY in flash backs, but Smith is able to be just as touching when saying good-bye to his wife (Salli Richardson) and daughter (Willow Smith) , as he is discussing his birthday with his dog.

My heart rate was still noticeably “up” after we had left the theater.

Is It Good For Kids?

Outside of one little freak out with the word “hell” used as an exclamatory and not a noun, there is no cussing, no sex, no inappropriately dressed people, and no messages you would need to shield your children from. There is a character who uses “God” as a cuss word, but the response to the line is an explanation about God, Himself.

What is concerning for children are the “hives” of sub human zombie vampires coming to kill the main character. Where this may not cause your children to have incorrect world views, it could keep them up with nightmares. (In the theater, I did see a boy, probably around 8-10 years old, and his mom leave after the first couple of scenes, seemingly at the boys request.) It does not contain overt amounts of gore, but the Zombie Vampires are gross to look at and there are a couple of disturbing scenes with the dog, including a Zombie attack, that would be upsetting for children to see.

For a complete break down of what is on the screen, check out Screenit.com.

-Under “ProfanityScreenit.com has more words than I caught. I’m guessing they occur during the flash backs of people trying to escape New York before the military quarantines the city. Thus, it would be in the background amongst confusion and noise and not said by a character we would find influential. They also say that it only had 3 “jump scenes”. I think they lost count.

What About Spiritual Issues?

In the beginning of the film you see Neville drive by a bunch of posters with the hands from the Cistene chapel and the words “God Still Cares.” Then on his refrigerator is a magazine cover with his picture and the word “Savior?” It seems he added the question mark himself. In the flash back scene Neville’s wife prays for him (specifically to God) with his daughter before they part. In one scene Neville points out that “God didn’t do this, we did.” A wonderful attitude about God versus our evil decisions. All of this sets you up too look for this “unseen character” to intervene throughout the film.

Neville does talk about “Bob Marlie” in one scene. The things he says about him fit into the film and help explain the main character. They play “Three Little Birds” through the movie and “Redemption Song” in the credits. The slight problem here is that the things they say about Marlie are true but they leave out that he was also an evangelist for a cult that believed in the Old Testament and that the then King of Ethiopia was the promised Messiah and not Jesus. The movie itself leaves no room for that interpretation of Messiah but I though it worth noting. Neville does hold up a Bob Marlie CD and proclaims it “The best album ever.” The CD is “Legend”.

(SPOILER!)

He meets another survivor (Alice Braga) who is going to a refuge that God told her is out there. She believes that God had orchestrated her meeting with Neville.

(Even MORE of a SPOILER)

The movie ends (seriously, don’t read this part if you are going to see it anyway.) Robert declares that he can now hear God, sends out a vile of blood that will “save” man kind and offers help to sick people who instead try to kill him. If all of this is not Christ like enough, Robert ends up giving up his own life to ensure that the blood will save humanity. (Making him a “Type of Christ” and “The Freedom Bringer” When the refuge is found, the doors of the compound are open to reveal a beautiful country town (in contrast to the urban jungle of NY) with the main street leading to a church. Ultimately this film offers many clear pictures of the Gospel.

What Is Your Recommendation?

If you can handle some tense action and enjoy a good thrill ride, this movie offers it all, without the immoral baggage.

Even more than that, if you bring a friend with you, this film brings up many opportunities to discuss the One who gave His blood for us to save us from only half living, in pain and evil

The Watchmen Q&E Review Show

Transformers

March 7, 2009

transformers_movie_poster_optimus_prime

What Is It?

Transformers, of course, is a movie based on the Hasbro toys (and subsequent Comic Book, Cartoon Show, and animated movie) from the 80’s. They are simply the coolest toys for boys, ever. Now that all the little boys who saw these “robots in disguise” as the testosterone filled ‘Holy Grail” of Toys’R’Us are in their 30’s*, Director Michael Bay and producer Steven Spielberg are aiding the Transformers in their own journey into adulthood.

Where the original story line had Earth as the last place to harvest “Energon”, the power source to keep their world going. This one has Earth as the hiding place of the “All Spark” which can be used by the Autobots (good guys) to rebuild their planet or the Decepticons (Bad Guys) to power their army for intergalactic domination. With the plot out of the way, this is a movie about vehicles that turn into giant robots and fight each other. What cooler toy could any grown up little boy hope for.

How Was It?

Transformers is simply the most incredible special effects film I have ever seen. You know that you are looking at a special effect only because reason tells you that alien robots do not exist and do not change into your car. Other than that, the effects are seamless. Added to the realism is the camera work, which sways toward “documentary style.” The fight scenes are wonderful, and they give you the feel that the World’s Greatest Camera Man happened to see giant robots fighting, grabbed his gear and yelled “I’m getting this!” If you have time to think during the onslaught, you will no doubt think things like “I have never seen anything like this.” The action is so good you will not notice the near complete lack of plot or even the glaring problems with it’s logic. Still the movie makes no pretenses about things like that. Like the little boys with their action figures, they come up with enough of a plot to get to a couple of hours of fighting, it’s all you need.

If you have been part of the fad in the past, you will be thrilled to know that , Peter Cullen, the original voice of Optimus Prime, reprises his role for this movie. Autobots have blue eyes and Decepticons have purple. The first transformation has the sound effect that you remember, people say “More that meets the eye”, Megatron, while being voiced by Hugo Weaving, tells off a whiny Starscream, guilty of failing again, and finally the Megatron vs Optimus Prime battle starts with the declaration “One shall stand, one shall fall”

Is It Good For Kids?

The violence is almost non-stop once it gets going. Though there is nothing too horrible, humans are threatened and you have to assume casualties, though none are shown. The violence is always bad guys attack because they are evil and good guys protect because they are good. Beyond that, parents may be concerned about the language. They use all the tradition swears, but seem to find the most fitting to be taking the Lord’s name in vain.

There is also emphasis on teen sexuality. Our human hero Sam (Shia LaBeouf) is a teen boy who would like to date the hot girl Mikaela Banes (Megan Fox). Mikaela is unable to find a shirt that covers her and thus the camera man actually holds still, prior to panning, on a couple of occasions. There are also several comments that range from a robot determining Sam’s choice of activities based on his pheromone level, a banter scene where Sam is so flustered he can not say anything that is not a double entendre , and a bizarre scene where Sam’s Donna Reed style mom (Julie White) gives her theory on why Sam would lock the door to be alone in his room. She then comes up with cute code’s like “Sam’s happy time” because the boy and his father (Kevin Dunn) seem uncomfortable with the technical word. She finally excuses herself by explaining that she had been drinking. The reason the door was locked was to keep his parents from realizing that he was finding clues for alien robots. The consummation of the scene is when Mikaela pops up from her hiding place. Mom tells Sam that she is beautiful and gleefully believing that he was simply locking himself in his room with a girl he snuck in, the parents are properly satisfied and leave.

The movie ends (Spoiler?) With a shot of Sam laying on the hood of his car with Mikaela on top of him. (This is all just a little creepy when you realize his car is one of the personified characters.)

What About Spiritual Issues?

This film starts off with an explanation of the “All Spark” which is the inanimate object that created their planet and brought them to life.It is later shown as giving life to a cell phone. This gives a bizarre version of evolutionary creationism. Like “The Force” the “All Spark”  allows the story to have a spiritual dimension and power in a totally godless version of reality. With the “All Spark” as creator, God is used only as a substitute word for supposedly more offensive cussing and Jesus himself is simply the punch line to Sam begging his teacher to raise his grade.

The idea of self sacrifice is pointed out in the dialog with the oft said mantra “Without sacrifice there is no victory” and though a good Pastor could use this to start his sermon next week, it’s not enough to put the movie on strong footing.

What Is Your Recommendation?

This is a movie about vehicles that turn into robots and fight. To that end it is excellent. To that end I want to revive my 20 year old semi-dormant obsession and put on my Autobot t-shirt while I listen to the sound track, get myself a tie-in lunch box, see the film a couple more times in the theaters and wait patiently for it to come out on DVD.  Unfortunately the thin plot is spiced with anti-God spirituality and glorified teen sexuality. Thus I will instead leave the shirt dormant and move on.
