Filmreviews von Christen für Christen - PewPewPew - PewPewPew

Auf der Seite gibt es ein Wörterbuch mit christlichen Begriffen, FAQs und vielen anderen tollen Dingen (für Christen jedenfalls). Weiterhin gibt es auch Filmreviews, die sehr unterhaltsam sind. Ich habe mal nur ein bisschen querbeet gelesen und ich bin mir sicher, dass dort noch einige Perlen zu finden sind. Die Kommentare der Besucher tun ihr Übriges. Ihr könnt sie ja in den Kommentaren posten. Hier mal meine Highlights nach 10 Minuten:

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Review)

WARNING! This movie should not be rated anything less than NC-17! It really should have XXX after the NC-17.?? If you are a parent reading this, I strongly suggest

you speak with your children about NOT seeing this film.

Contagion (Review)

This film approaches the subject of an outbreak with a completely secular view, and I believe this to be the film’s biggest downfall. With their loved ones dying all around them, no one turns to God or even to an unknown higher power. Even atheists or agnostics might pray in sheer desperation, in hopes that someone is listening. Who else can conquer death but the Lord himself? (Hebrews 2:9). Death is sadly a part of life, with no one being promised a tomorrow. I’ve been by the bedsides of brothers and sisters in Christ, singing hymns as they seek rest within the peace and love of Christ. Though some have died, this world is only temporary, and Christians can set their eyes on the unseen beauty of eternity with Christ. In 2 Corinthians 4:18, it reads:

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Final Destination 5 (Review)

Another aspect brought out in the film is when the character Peter is trying to justify killing someone to take his place with death. He talks about how he tried to push someone in front of a bus, but could not, because they did not deserve to die. This brings up an interesting point—who deserves to die and who is in charge of that decision? Again, the Bible states in Romans “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (3:23), and “for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (6:23). I suppose that knowing these things, it does not bother me to see a movie about our “final destination.” I know where my final destination lies.

Apollo 18 (Review) – Achtung, die Spoilern den kompletten Film hier. Echt. Kein Risiko eingehen!!!

The story continues to spiral downward and become more and more unbelievable, while attempting to keep the action and suspense going. The moon rocks begin to turn into some kind of bug (yes, bugs), which chase the men around. Eventually, overrun by the strange bugs and running low on oxygen, Ben flees to the Soviet ship, leaving Nate behind (Ben apparently ignores Jesus’ words in John 15:13: “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”) Ben proceeds to fly the unknown foreign ship expertly back to the mother ship. In the meantime, the Department of Defense refuses to allow the men to return to Earth. Of course, how the video footage turned up is never clear, but we are supposed to be left fearful of all the moon rocks that have previously been brought home to earth that are bound to turn into the creepy bugs.

All the ways “Apollo 18” departs from any sort of credible reality would be impossible to list here. The words of Isaiah 29:14 sum it up nicely: “the wisdom of the wise will perish; the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.”

Speaking of the wise, the final insult from “Apollo 18” would be that the story occurs during the Christmas season and the Christmas hymn, “We Three Kings,” is played during the final credits.
