Join us in the Sandy Plains Fellowship Hall for the tenth installment of Worldview Movie Night, featuring God's Not Dead. In the film, a college philosophy professor's curriculum is challenged by a new student who believes God exists — and is willing to prove it. The film is directed by Harold Cronk, from a screenplay by Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon. Starring Kevin Sorbo, Shane Harper, and Dean Cain. There will be discussion following the movie.
Join us this coming Friday for an evening of films and fellowship as we watch and discuss Pixar Animation Studio's tenth animated film, Up. The movie is directed by Pete Docter, from a screenplay by the Docter, Bob Peterson, and Thomas McCarthy. The film's high-flying adventure is great for kids with plenty of significant themes and smart humor to keep adults interested as well.
Join us in the Fellowship Hall at the end of May for a viewing of The Dark Knight and – more importantly – a thoughtful discussion of the film and its worldview to follow. This film is the middle chapter of Christopher Nolan's widely-praised, popular, and influential Dark Knight trilogy and represents a seminal installment in the contemporary renaissance of superhero films.
Discussion will focus on the story, storytelling, and worldview of the film itself as well as a broader discussion of the superhero genre and the inescapable contrast with the Greatest Hero, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Dark Knight is rated PG-13 for a little language, a lot of violence, and a whole lot of disturbing imagery, most of it centered around the film's main villain, the Joker. This clown is not for kids and parents who have not seen the movie are cautioned to preview it before bringing their children to the viewing.
This evening's movie will be Inception, directed by Christopher Nolan from his own script. The film centers upon Dom Cobb, an "extractor" who invades the dreams of important people in order to steal important ideas. Cobb is offered a chance to return home if he is able to implant an idea into a subject's mind. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jospeh Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe, and an ensemble cast. Rated PG-13, content concerns include violence (mostly bloodless), some disturbing and disorienting imagery, and some language, including a handful of misuses of God's name.
