Voyage of the Dawn Treader is Back On

Apparently, Disney is set to film Voyage of the Dawn Treader after having previously indicated the movie was off.   In a previous post, I discussed my feelings about this.   Essentially, I was unhappy with the embellishments in the movie and believe that the drop in revenue was associated with Lewis fans showing their displeasure.   I reviewed Prince Caspian.  The title was:  A Review of Prince Caspian- One Disappointed Christian.

From my readings in the blogosphere, it looks like we may be in for more with the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  This is unfortunate, as this is one … continue reading...

Disney Drops Narnia Movie, Dawn Treader Voyage Cancelled

I read today on Worldnetdaily that Disney is not going to produce the next in line in the Narnia series, the Dawn Treader.  Article:  http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=85538

This is disappointing but not entirely surprising.  I have always thought that it would be difficult to make a full length movie out of all seven books in the Narnia series.   I was concerned that if the books were forced to fit into the ‘full length movie’ paradigm that ‘enhancements’ and ’embellishments’ would necessarily have to follow.   I find that many Christians much preferred something true to the text.  A cinematic version of the … continue reading...

Giving Skeptics Reason to be Skeptical: Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. New Super Trailer.

The latest trailer is awesome in my opinion: http://www.expelledthemovie.com/playground.php (Opens in New Window.)

I have had on occasion the opportunity to challenge my skeptical atheistic secular humanistic ‘free thinking’ ‘bright‘ friends to put their alleged skeptical and free thinking methods to work that is skeptical about everything, and not just ‘religious’ issues. There are many examples where I think such an attitude would, if applied genuinely result in respect and appreciation for ‘religious’ views even if not leading them to embrace them. But usually, skeptics are not skeptical of everything. They are skeptical just to a point.… continue reading...

What? Something in a movie is historically distorted?

http://www.thestar.com/article/190493

The historian in this article lays out the implication that movie goers won’t know that the real history of the event is different than what is in the movie.  From the bits that I’ve seen of the movie, you’d have to be a real idiot to not know that the movie had blended history and myth.  That seemed to be the goal of the movie, and the historian’s essay cited above seems to not quite grasp that.

But the true irony is that nearly every person that sees the movie the “300” will know that the producers have played … continue reading...
