The big movie opening this weekend is the new Harry Potter movie. Even though it is getting glowing reviews, we won’t be seeing it. This time around, Harry Potter is getting good press
from Christian writers who claim Christianity and Harry Potter don’t
clash. The author is a member of the Inklings, we are told, C.S. Lewis’
group, and is carrying on in the C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein
tradition. I haven’t read any of the books or seen any of the movies. But witchcraft and Christianity clash.
That is my bottom line, and I can’t get away from it. The occult is
real, it is a real gateway to the demonic, and it is dangerous.
In other movie news, “Pride and Prejudice” opened in a limited release this week, and I want to see it. It will open locally next week. Ann Coulter skewers
Clooney’s historically flawed “Good Night, and Good Luck,” about the
eeeevil Joe McCarthy (ahem). Boy, Clooney has an ax to grind. Maybe
when he runs out of money making all these flops he will get over it.
The last movie he made that I loved was “O Brother, Where Art Thou.” Speaking of Clooney, Rosemary Clooney (George’s aunt) was wonderful in “White Christmas.” I love her singing Count Your Blessings.
“Derailed” gets a good review.
I don’t know anything about this other than what the reviewer reveals.
It is supposed to be marriage- and- commitment- affirming. I don’t
think I can sit through the indiscretions to find out if that is true,
Update: Oh! Oh! Oh! I want to see Walk the Line, the new movie about Johnny Cash! I didn’t know it opened today!
