Movies in 12 - The Fugitive (1993) Starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones

What do you do when the justice system fails? This movie review of the 1993 film The Fugitive starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones explores what happens when a person is wrongly convicted of a murder.

We analyze this idea and why Dr. Richard Kimble is still motivated to help others when he's on-the-run and slowing down may land him back in jail or to the electric chair.

#3 - Rocky: More Than A Sports Film - Drew's Top 6

The original Rocky was far more than just a sports film. The deep character interactions point to bigger themes than winning a boxing match, plus the film is a true underdog story of a low-budget film that won the Oscar and a launching pad for Sylvester Stallone's career. Stallone made a risky bet on himself to get this film made the way he envisioned it, and it paid off. So how did it happen? Find out in this episode!

#5 - Casablanca: Why it still resonates after 80 years - Drew's Top 6

Casablanca had viewers on the edge of their seats due to the difficult decisions characters were forced to make throughout the film, making it a fascinating exploration of psychology. In this movie review podcast, we discuss the situations each characters faced and our reactions to their dilemmas. Some characters transform. Others are consumed by their own vices. Some even have spiritual dilemmas so complex that even right and wrong are unclear. Although it's an old 1942 black and white film, it surprisingly still moves audiences today. We discuss this classic film here on this episode of Movies Are Spiritual! #moviereview #moviepodcast #movies #film #classicmovies #casablanca #moviereaction

#2 - The Exorcist (1973): Discussing Spiritual Themes in Doug's Top 6 Favorite Movies

#2 - The Exorcist (1973): Discussing Spiritual Themes in Doug's Top 6 Favorite Movies

Did you know the horror film The Exorcist is based on a real Biblical concept? It comes from the idea of demonic possession, something we see Jesus confronting in the New Testament. However, demons aren't what most people think they are! In fact, Satan is not a demon. Demons are something else entirely! At least not according to the original beliefs of Judaism and early Christianity! So what is the demon Pazuzu and why is he frightening? In this video we discuss what makes the Exorcist scary from a faith-based perspective, the origin of demons in the Bible and why that leads them to possess humans. We also discuss some behind-the-scenes facts about the movie and some fun movie trivia, plus we talk about Doug and Drew's trip to one of the actual locations used in the movie! We pool our knowledge of theology and movie fandom in this unusual analysis of demons in the 1973 movie The Exorcist starring Linda Blair and Max Von Sydow. Watch the video to hear our analysis, reactions after our first time watching the movie, and our review. Will we recommend The Exorcist and do we recommend the sequels? Listen to find out!

#5 - High Fidelity (2000): Discussing Spiritual Themes in Doug's Top 6 Favorite Movies

Hi Fidelity might be a surprising choice as a spiritual film, but if you look closely it actually contains deeply spiritual themes. It could be argued that John Cusack's character bears deep scars from previous broken relationships. He is a troubled character who, over the course of the film, slowly learns to overcome his own character flaws and relationship struggles. As he tries to figure out what it is about himself that pushes others away, he realizes he's actually attracted to women who aren't necessarily good for him. He'll wrestle with his own understanding of what love is and whether or not he's capable of loving others well, and even make some changes in his own life. Through a spiritual lens, it is a fascinating character study of someone going through a dark time. Watch our discussion on this film as part of our series, Doug's Top 6 favorite movies, somewhat of a variation on the film's "mixtape" theme! Hear our reactions and review of this John Cusack and Jack Black film from 2000.

#1 - The Matrix (1999): Discussing Spiritual Themes in Nathan's Top 6 Favorite Movies

Did you know The Matrix is jam-packed full of spiritual themes and Biblical ideas? Scattered throughout the film are the names of Biblical places and characters such as Trinity, Zion and more. There's even a prophecy about "The One," which is eerily similar to the prophecy within Judaism and Christianity about a Messiah. The original 1999 Matrix film introduced the concept of two worlds; one physical and one... spiritual? It depends on how you interpret it, but we had some fun discussing the spiritual parallels, some that were put intentionally into the film and others that may simply show a close similarity to a familiar concept. We compare Neo to Jesus, Agent Smith to Satan and his angels, and most interestingly, what the film says about how difficult it is for someone to change the way they see the world.

Marvel's Eternals - The Deep Theology that Inspired the Movie

Did you know Marvel's Eternals were originally created to explore spiritual themes such as the origin of humans?  The comics actually explored stories such as the Great Flood and Noah's Ark, inspired by Sumerian, Mesopotamian and Old Testament religious stories.  So what theological ideas are buried in this movie?  Several interesting ideas are pulled from this banned book of the Bible: First Enoch: The Book of Watchers.  The movie also pulled from Babylonian religion, Sumerian religion, Greek mythology, early Judaism and First Century Christianity.  You'd be shocked at what's behind this film and it will make for a much more interesting viewing of the film!  In this episode we dive into the spiritual writings that inspired this film, and in the next episode we'll talk more specifically about the plot and whether or not we recommend this polarizing Marvel film!
