Movies and Music
Watched two good movies this weekend, Taladega Nights and Perfume. I enjoyed them both loads. I am not really a big film critic, some I like some I don’t. I went to watch 300 with my dad, we thought it was so crap we got up and walked out half way through.
My favourite film of all time is “The Godfather” it’s a powerful movie. The end of the Godfather 1 is like the beginning of 1 Kings in the Bible. Solomon wreaks revenge on all those who have been conspiring against him and establishes his throne, just like Michael Corleone.
8 mile is another great film, I love the end, the intensity……
Has anyone ever seen the movie “King David” with Richard Gere, it’s pretty rubbish. Why aren’t there any good biblical films out there, The Passion was okay.
I have in my time seen some “Christian” movies, that is films made by Christians for Christians, they are normally pretty pants, a bit like most Christian music. Do those two words really go together “Christian Music” .
There is only really: good music and bad music. Some Christian music I have listened to leaves me cold. Although saying that I often get very moved listening to worship songs. I like “Worship music” it communicates truth and gives me a voice to express my feelings to God, but normally it doesn’t really hold up as just good music. I have used The Rolling Stones in a worship context, now thats good music. But thats my own taste, I think it's very hard to have a debate about christian music just like it is very difficult to decide good and bad movies. We all know what we like.
Worship like movie watching is a very personal experience and we all know what we prefer.
What am I saying? I like worship music but don’t actually think it’s very good musically! but thats my viewpoint.
We all have our own preferences.
