I love to watch movies.
At the end of each Spring, as commercials start to come out for upcoming summer blockbusters, I can’t help but get excited. At least half the movies don’t turn out to be any good; but each year I get excited, anyway!
There’s nothing wrong with going to the movies and enjoying a good hero story. In fact, often the values heroes fight for – protecting the poor, defending the weak, and so on – are well in line with the teachings of Christ. Other times, not so much…
This June, as summer blockbusters begin to appear, we’re going to celebrate some of the heroes of the silver screen, and give some thought to the things they fight for. We may not all be waging epic battles to protect humanity, but we can help save the world…and be a little bit like The Best Action Heroes of All Time.
