Are people’s lives more important than art? Tim and Eve explore the themes of The Monuments Men from a Christian worldview.
Dr. Jayce O’Neal from The Strangers and Aliens podcast joins Eve to discuss The Hunger Games: Catching Fire from a Christian worldview.
There’s more to Save the Last Dance than hip hop dancing. It is a ripe field for discussion on teen pregnancy, interracial relationships, prejudice, and fatherhood.
It’s Superhero Theme Week, and Iron Man 3 fits right in with a not-so-super hero ready to save the girl and the country with a full repertoire of tricks and cheesy one liners.
Eve Franklin explores racism in the historical context of 42 (still in theaters) and last year’s almost overlooked gem Red Tails, and the Christian content in both movies.
Last night I had the pleasure of previewing 42 before its release in theaters tomorrow. I encourage you to go see it and then stay tuned for my critical thinking review combining an in-depth exploration of the real life valor of African Americans in the movie Red Tails (2012) with a heart-felt analysis of a post-war story of guts in the face of adversity in this new portrayal of Jackie Robinson’s first year in Major League baseball.
I will also, Lord willing, be releasing a critical review of Iron Man 3 during the week of May 12-18 for a theme week in conjunction with other terrific Christian worldview podcasts. Stay tuned for more details.
And if any of you are waiting with bated breath for my review of Hunger Games, it’s still in the queue.
