What do we watch? What exactly do we let in into our minds? Our souls? For example, why do people like movies like Man of Steel? In another thread on this forum, some even claimed that they could find Christian elements in the character of Superman. I don’t want to offend anybody, but on the contrary, I find Superman as opposed to Christianity. To God. As a new tower of babel thing. See for example Smallville (or rather don’t). In the late seasons people came to see Superman as their savior. But is Superman really a savior? What exactly can he save? Let’s see. He’s a slave to time (just like all of us). In one single minute, throughout U.S. (let alone the entire world) take place thousands of crimes: gangstery, rape, stealing, murders. So even if Superman would use all his time to save others, he would only be capable of saving one in 100000 or so. That’s for U.S. alone. Not much of a savior, is he? Moreover, he DOESN’T use all his time to save others. Not only in the movies but also in the TV show most of his time, BY FAR, is spent TALKING - not doing. So indeed, not much of a savior, is he? There was a scene illustrative in this regard, in the previous screen Superman movie. Superman flying almost out of the atmosphere and staying there tuning in to police frequencies, to see where exactly he is needed. And eventually finding a robbery in progress, and then speeding down to the scene. I found that to be completely absurd. I would also like to hear what movies have you seen and found them to be watchable, as a Christian. Similarly for TV shows. I for one watch for example White Collar. Also Covert Affairs. While not Christian, at least they are not offensive (not much violence, swearing etcetera). However, Covert Affairs does have a rather strong sexual content. Similarly for Nikita. Although this one at times is also very dark. But there aren’t too many options out there, are there? I also enjoyed Rubicon. Much, actually. Similarly for Human Target and Burn Notice. Somewhat less, Leverage. I remember that more than a decade ago I was deeply into horror movies. And the movies of Martin Scorsese, or Quentin Tarantino. Now I can only ask myself how I could have possibly watched those kind of super-violent movies (and entirely full of ugly things). Not very Christian of me, feeding my mind with all that UGLINESS. No surprise I had many nightmares back then. We are what we feed ourselves with? In some extended sense, I think yes. What’s your opinion? Thanks for your thoughts. P.S. I am kindly asking the moderators to leave this thread here, under General Discussion, instead of Media, because the discussion is not much about the actual movies or shows, but rather how is a Christian doing in a world putting him or her under siege each and every moment, in this particular case through the entertainment industry. Thank you.
