Hi, all and movie review

Post  AustenFan on Tue Dec 22, 2009 10:18 am

Hello, everybody

Long time no "see". I lost the link for the site and somehow never got around to putting the name of google.

Like Joe, I have been fighting with people on politics forums. I am a "recovering liberal" who is very unhappy about the state of the U.S. and the policies of Obama.

However, what I am posting now is a review by Ross Douthat of "Avatar". My husband and son went to see it.
They enjoyed the special effects. My husband also said it was a heavy handed modern version of "Dances With Wolves" filled with a lot of sterotypes about evil, destructive capitalists and soldiers.

I found this review by this fellow who writes for the NYT. I appreciate that he presents the view from a theological Perspective. He says that movie is the "Gospel of James" (James Cameron, the director) which is about pantheism.

If the link doesn't work and you're interested, put in "Heaven and Nature" and look for Ross Douthat.


Best to all and Merry Christmas.
