Subject: The Score
Date: Mon, 17 Sep 2001
Loved the movie, but
agree with another viewer, it was good, but not great. Robert DeNiro was
good, and appropriately complex, but it was Edward Norton who brought
tension to the film. Pushing, pushing, being aggressive and yet agreeable,
just in the nick of time -- or so you think. Brando's character brought
a certain amount of pathos, which showed the vulnerability of crime --
and of betting on the "big" one to dig you out from your troubles, that
I liked. It helped underscore the moral "risk" DeNiro's character was
really taking. The ending, which was immediately justifying and gratifying,
on reflection, only underscored the common perception that well-disciplined
risk is rewarded. This sentiment kind of goes against the adage - crime

David, My daughter
enjoys surfing your web site and occasionally prints stuff for me to read.
I appreciate your heart for God and especially your "who so ever will"
approach. I think that pleases the heart of the Father.
However, in general
I feel that your web site does not do any different than the local newspaper.
You tell what the movie is about. It really would be great if you would
do more critical analysis of the movies that you review. One thing that
I want my kids to do is learn to think and make decisions from well thought
out reasonings. I feel that you could make more of an impact if you were
leading the way with that type of approach.
Thanks for bearing
with this rambling mom. "Who so ever will"
FROM A SKINNY GUY TRYIN' TO GET TO HEAVEN
Date: Mon, 17 Sep 2001
Dear David, Hello!
I read and was amazed and challenged by your statistics and comments,
respectively, on Thomas Kincaid, and of your unfortunate church experience
regarding the discussion about R-rated movies.
You probably already
know this, but for what it's worth, there are many of us out here who
share your conviction that though we are not to be "of" the world, we
are to be "in" it, and to be able to engage the culture lovingly AND intelligently
(read: informed). As you probably also know, the late Francis Shaeffer
was passionate about this, as is his filmmaker son Frank, commentator
Chuck Colson, and the late Keith's Green's wife Melody, who is married
to a really sharp guy, who, along with Melody, devoted an issue of their
newsletter a few years ago to Christians in the arts, and their struggles
to be in but not of, and of dealing with the types of things you mentioned.
(So I'd say that puts you in good company.) Two of my friends in particular
give me no end of passionate, thought-provoking monologues about the very
things you expressed (and do), that, thankfully, continue to knock me
out of that unseen current that tends to gently creep up and carry me
"out" of the world, isolated. I thank God for them, and I've sent them
the Hollywood Jesus URL.
Anyway, I hope this
encourages you to continue to be and do what God has created you for;
your purpose in this generation (Ps. 71:18). As a writer, I struggle daily
with being in but not of, especially when it comes to pop culture. And
I've concluded that, like so may other things, I'm not very good at it;
I tend to jump back and forth between extremes. So once again, there are
those out here like me who are grateful for those like you who have a
gift for doing it well, and are willing to take the time (and endure the
heat) to share your insights with your weaker brothers.

tryin' to get to Heaven.")
BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR PROSTITUTES
Date: Mon, 17
From: Chris English
I was just referred
to your website through a newsgroup I am part of whose membership consists
of graduates from which was Larry Crabb's/Dan Allender's graduate counseling
program. If you're not already familiar with these two guys, and what
is now Allender's' Mars Hills graduate program and journal-- http://www.marshillforum.org/
--you, and those who agree with the gospel you are preaching, need to
be as they espouse the same gospel of embracing culture for Christ as
yourself. I do ask a question for you and your readers that I continue
to wrestle with (and I'm not looking so much for final answers as much
as fellow-wrestlers) : While I embrace as well the gospel of non-condemnation
(pagans will be pagans), and of redeeming culture to connect with it for
the gospel's sake (e.g. the Matrix and Pitch
Black are examples of movies that powerfully portray the gospel),
I also think it is important that we don't tip the scales so far the other
way in over-reaction to "fundamentalism" that we leave out the painful
and horrifying truth of eternal judgment (both for believers and nonbelievers).
While I stand with you in calling for more churches that welcome sinners
(Tony Campolla speaks of wanting to go to a church that "throws birthday
parties for prostitutes"), how do we also continue to call them to something
better? How do we say "Send me your addicts, your prostitutes, your atheists,
your violent criminals, your sexually immoral, yet also present them a
gospel that is not watered down in a way that just comforts them in their
sin? How do we foster conviction inspired by the Holy Spirit (that leads
to a new lifestyle of walking in the Spirit) without the condemnation
inspired by man (that is as fleshly and sinful as the sin it condemns)?
Sinners (and that includes those in Christ and those not-yet Christians),
still need to come into contact with the Holy Spirit in a manner that
leads to ongoing godly sorrow, repentance, forgiveness, and a life of
increasing Christlikeness. Christ indeed died for sin and sinners, but
not just for forgiveness. He also rose again that we too "might walk in
the newness of life." Thanks for providing a place that embraces thoughtful
You seem to suggest that being godly is separation from the world. So,
yes you have a conflict. For me, being outside the walls is a very Christ
like thing to do. That is being godly to me. -David
ON THOMAS KINKADE
Subject: Comments on Thomas Kinkade Newsletter_27-Kinkade
Date: Mon, 17 Sep 2001
I believe this is
your problem not Thomas Kinkades. I have met many people whose lives have
been touched in a wonderful way by his art that brings God's glory to
many homes in America. God did not create the violence in our culture
but told us to look at His creation that brings glory to Him.
Isolation brings glory to God?

From: "Wilson Wong"
Do you ever get a
feeling that whenever a person that does not outwardly match the view
of a 'Christian', comes to you and visit your church and sit right next
to you, you have this feeling of 'uneasiness'?
As much as I want
to be as open as Jesus would, it is kind of hard to fight this feeling.
Reading through your
column of non-effective Christians who are too self righteous, I really
want to transform myself through Christ out of that mindset and try as
much to embrace everyone who is willing to listen to Christ.
After Tuesdays tragedy
(so sad that some people are willing to listen to false prophets like
Osama and do not use their wisdom to discern), I believe it is more imperative
for us all to start harvesting for the Lord. Hopefully, your website will
be one of the loudspeakers for the true Lord.

Date: Sun, 16 Sep 2001
Mr. Bruce, I would like to ask you a question: Do you know of any Christian
colleges that teach good film courses? I'm trying to find one where I
can get my B.A. at. Also, do you have any comments on Bob Jones University's
cinema program, or the college in general? Thank you for your time.
I wish I knew. Sorry. I think Christian schools just don't cut it. I suggest
going to USC or UCLA -David
BORN AGNOSTIC LIKES HJ
Subject: Site feedback
Date: Sun, 16 Sep 2001
Hello, As a Jewish-born
agnostic, I find your site surprisingly interesting, thoughtful and not
judgemental in the way some Christian websites are towards pop culture.
You don't discard a film just for having some sex or violence in it, and
your observations and reviews are considered and really bring out some
interesting points in the films. It's a really refreshing take on spirituality
and pop culture, and shows you can combine them without having to be excessively
moralistic or critical.
My only criticism
is that it seems a shame that the site only deals with Christianity and
pop culture. Whereas a lot of the observations you make (for example Jurassic
Park 3 having a message about family break-ups) really apply to most religions
and non-religious beliefs as well. Have you considered expanding the remit
of the site to include other beliefs as well?
If any of your loved
ones have been involved in the recent tragedies in New York, Washington
and Pennsylvania, may I apologise for bothering you at this difficult
time and offer my deepest sympathy.
Best wishes, Jessica

GD IN CREED
Date: Fri, 14 Sep 2001
I'd like to address
the "GD" reference in the last tune on Creed's album- it is indeed a problem,
if these guys are are alluding at all to be Christian "in background",
or even "leaning in that direction". Sounds like a weak justification,
in defense of it's being on the site at all, actually. Biblically, you
are either on the train or off, hot or cold, but never lukewarm. The Lord
say's He does'nt want us halfway- we are either for Him or against Him
(NIV). I see the positive outlook reference in the album, and I certainly
realize the lyrics come across as uplifting, but where do we draw the
line, and call a spade a spade? The guys are'nt espousing their Christian
beliefs, and we as listeners, reviewers, etc, are going off track by handing
the benefit of the doubt to them so easily. How can you sing of God's
influence in a person's life, (crown of thorns), heaven (?), etc., and
finish it up with taking the name of the Lord in vain? Blasphemy come
to mind, here? It's one thing to want to get into the world, move among
the unsaved, and tell them of God's grace, forgiveness, and willingness
to forgive us our sins- it's another to compromise the lines Christ drew,
blurring the demarcations of the righteous and the unrighteous. There
is a black and white delineation in effect- you're either for Him, or
you're against Him. The hope of all Christians would be to see all of
the world glorifying Him, and singing prise to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus
Christ- it's our responsibility as Christians to use our own God-given
gifts and talents to try and achieve this end; tell the world of the Lord
and spread His Gospel, in a loving, kind, and righteous way. The problem
seems to be the allowance of the culture at large to influence Christians
into believing it's OK to partake of the world's delights - not what God
has given us, but what we as humans have produced for our own consumption-,
and leave what we don't think is right, behind. This is really not a decision
for us to be making, as we are not able to righteously make this decision
on our own, without the help of the Holy Spirit. Not to say we need to
seek the Holy Spirit each time we walk into Tower Records, or Blockbuster
Video, but to seek the Holy Spirit to guide us in ALL our decisions, to
convict us in our unrighteous (non Christ-like) attitudes, and to seek
the Lord's will, not our own. If we are left to make the decisions, we
lose. If we seek The Lord's Will over ours, we are in the right with Him,
doing as He wants us to do, and being who He wants us to be. It's impossible
to straddle the line and expect to be in favor with God. Iniquity and
righteousness are polar opposites. The Lord wants us to be happy, content
and satisfied; hence, all the wonderful things He has given us. Compromising
His Will, and forsaking it in desire for the world's attractions, will
surely be the beginning of a downfall for any believing Christian. The
Amplified Bible refers to "Uncompromisingly Righteous" many times. There
is not to be a compromise when it comes to doing the Lord's Will- we can't
have it both ways. Some of the world, and some of the Lord- giving satan
a foothold is not a place any one of us can stand to be for very long.
Be careful as to what you let in to the Lord's temple- your body; He created
you, made you who you are, and also gave us free will; the tremendous
responsiblity of making our own decisions, for right or wrong. That is
freedom, and it can be turned into a curse, if abused. Seek the Lord's
Will - ask for guidance, and ask the Holy Spirit to show you where iniquity
lies in your heart. Feeding it music, film, etc., that taints, deceives,
and lures you away from Jesus is panting bad seeds. Weds from these seeds
will overtake the field, and spoil the harvest. Be careful what you allow
in. Remember, satan can "appear as an angel of light", and knows every
single word of the Bible, quite well. If he can try to tempt Christ, what
sort of chance do you think you might have? Jesus did not have a vacation
there- he was human, like the rest of us, for a time. Pain and suffering
was the order for the day, for 40 days- we just plop our dough on the
counter, and walk out with the stuff. Be careful, and seek the Lord's
guidance. Thanks, if you read this far, and God Bless You.
marc So what does reviewing a secular album have to do with being lukewarm.
So what if Creed says "g-d" -what of it? HJ is a Christian site that reviews
secular stuff. Strange though... Why are you even on the internet? Why
are you even aware of Creed? Your email itself is a review of Creed. Oh
my gosh you listened to a secular group! And reviewed it. Like oh my gosh.
Your email is a self reflect of you! I hope God is less judgemental of
you, than you are of others. You email is certainly g-ding of us -isn't
it. You hypocrite. You can g-d us But Creed can not say the actual words
You can review Creed But we can't. Hmm. All I can say to you is: May God
bless you May God give you peace May God love you beyond measure. Acts

what does reviewing a secular album have to do with being lukewarm.
Mr. Bruce, this is not a personal attack. It's an observation, with my
views expressed as a caring, fellow Christian.
David's Response: Nice words, but you were being judgemental.
what if Creed says "g-d" -what of it?
Not to be judgemental here, but isn't this profanity, in most Christian
circles? I was under the impression that Christ has set a standard for
ALL of us to follow, clearly laid out in the Bible (correct me here, if
David's Response: Creed is a secular group. So, your
words do not apply. Also, where does Jesus address the issue of "profanity'?
is a Christian site that reviews secular stuff.
True, as far as I can see-
though... Why are you even on the internet?
Communication- Like many other Christians. Education. Sharing of information.
I'd like to pose to you the same question. I'm sincerely interested in
David's Response: Communication.
are you even aware of Creed?
I do shop for music, like most folks. I really don't live in a hole in
the ground. I listen to the radio. I read newspapers. I work in the entertainment
industry. Walking down the street I, like everyone else with eyes and
ears on the planet, am bombarded by advertising, courtesy of the music
David's Response: You are saying that you know about
Creed through unintentional means? I do not buy your explanation.
email itself is a review of Creed
Actually, I think your take on my commentary may be just a bit broad to
be accurate, and lends itself to be more than a little defensive. I don't
recall having reviewed the album, if I'm to see your reviews as as an
David's Response: You did review it, giving it a thumbs
down for the use of G-D.
my gosh you listened to a secular group!
Sure! the problem is not with listening to "secular" groups. The issue
I posed is with mixing messages/ blurring the lines of the Word with the
words of non-christian attitudes, as a message in itself. I'm a big fan
of U2- not a "Cristian" group per se, but three of the four guys are professed
Christians. Is this unusual for a Christian?
David's Response: You know so much about the secular
world you dismiss. Very curious.
reviewed it. Like oh my gosh.
Again, I think it might behoove you to read the letter again. I would'nt
use the term reviewed so loosly, myself. Again, I take the stand I am
not a reviewer- you are. I responded to a review on your site. I don't
see much of what might be discerned as a review in my letter (using your
reviews as a standard, here).
David's Response: Again,
you did review it, giving it a thumbs down for the use of G-D.
email is a self reflect of you!
Could you be a bit more detailed here? I'm not sure I understand what
exactly you might be alluding to. I would certainly appreciate some clarification
of your statement, if you don't mind.
David's Response: It seems you are involved with the
very thing you condemn. And then you are quick to point at those that
do the same as you.
hope God is less judgemental of you Than you are of others.
Geez, I am sorry you feel this is being judgemental- certainly not my
intention, as I do feel I am not in the position to be judging anyone.
I do feel, as a Christiaan Brother, that I am in the position to say what
I see as a discrepancy, in the hope of opening a postive dialogue concerning
the isssue at hand.
David's Response: What issue? That secular groups use
language? We all agree that this is true. So what dialogue do we need
email is certainly a g-ding of us -isn't it.
Actually, I don't see it as an attack, tho you seem to feel it is. I apologize
for your taking this in such a way, but I do think your response here
is a bit reactionary. I have no desire to "damn" anyone. Only to open
a dialogue. Again, if you were to read the bottom of my letter, I do wish
God's Blessings on any one who care to read the letter.
David's Response: Nice closing on your letter. But,
it was a finger pointing letter.
I don't agree, tho I would appreciate your clarifying this point of view
for me, if you would.
David's Response: You are involved with the very thing
you condemn. And then you are quick to point at those who are as involved
can g-d us But Creed can not say the actual words
I don't recall "damning" anyone in the Lord's name in my letter. If you
would, could you point this out? I am certainly open to correction, if
David's Response: You are finger pointing.
can review Creed But we can't. Hmm
You can do whatever it is you would like to! It's God's gift, this
freedom to make our own decisions, and I did mention that in the letter
as well. I personally don't feel I did anything resembling a "review"
of Creed's album- I'm only responding to a post I had read on your site.
Where it had been been reviewed.
David's Response: Again, you are involved with the
very thing you condemn. And then you are quick to point at those who are
as involved as you.
is an amazing example of self righteousness.
Could you explain your view here? I don't feel I am being self-righteous,
rather sharing what is common knowledge, biblically. Again, I would appreciate
your comments, if I am incorrect here.
David's Response: As above.
IN LIGHT OF 9-11-01
Date: Sat, 15 Sep 2001
I've felt very strongly about your Kinkade newsletter for over a month
now, and I feel that I must, now, finally respond. When my wife first
mentioned that you had highlighted his (Kinkade's) art in your newsletter,
I thought it was going to be an issue of personal taste, which has an
impact on the way all art is viewed.
Personally, his stuff
has never interested me, because it never challenged me and the beauty
of them was tied to much that was too insipid. The bigger issue of course
is what sort of lifestyle does it idealize/idolize. In the light of the
terrorist attack on NYC (40 miles from here) I believe that his pictures
now would be completely incongruent to virtually any city resident. Perhaps
only to draw attention to the loss of a loved one.
This being said though,
I would like independent confirmation of all the numbers you quoted from
the book "The Way We Never Were--". Because with the authors agenda there
is a strong challenge to not just use the figures that seem to bolster
her point. (You need to read the book. Check out the
foot notes. She is very good and careful. -David) There is reason
for me to believe that the numbers are indeed right though. For this I
recommend an excellent video series by the late Francis Schaefer, "How
Then Should We Live..?". Sin has always been with us, consider the very
first family... The paradigm shift is in our American society of casual
acceptance of sin/immorality. This may not always bear out in numbers
of increased crime etc. but it does deaden a national soul (sin is areproache
to a nation...).
Yes, we can, lift
the family to the point of idolatry, that is always a danger with the
smaller 't' truths of the bible, nevertheless the family is the basic
means by which God has laid out with which we build villages, churches,
and nations. It would be a stretch for me to accept stats that don't clearly
agree with this truth (see socialism, Khemar Rouge etc.) , and if, the
Way, the Truth and the Life is in control the program works...
So as far as I am
concerned you are right on the $, with the exception of the above mentioned
caveats. But about Betty Paige... that'll have to come later.

It seems totally surreal
what has been happening lately. The comment I and so many of my friends
and colleagues have made repeatedly was that the mass destruction we witnessed
on the television looked like a movie. Our minds wanted to believe that
it was Hollywood special effects, but our hearts told us it was all too
The tragedy of such
a monumental loss is hard to comprehend, yet we stay glued to the media
and try to catch a glimpse of hope. The aftermath of such a disaster is
something for which we were just not prepared.
People all over are
amazed at how the American public have responded with so much love and
care, demonstrating unity where there was once sharp division over this
issue or that. It seems that such a blatant display of the sinful human
nature writ large has had the effect of shaking us all out of our slumber.
I pray that God may
use this situation to make us all more cognizant of the total depravity
of human nature and of how Christ is our only means of overcoming that.
Our culture is hungering for answers, especially now.
It will be very revealing
to see how we all look at the movies for a while. I think our perspective
will be very different.

Hi David, I don't
know what to do with this, but I thought if anyone could help me put this
imagery into perspective, it would be you. After Tuesday, I remembered
the scene from "Godspell" where Jesus and the disciples were dancing on
the roof of the nearly completed World Trade Center. I put the tape in
and sure enough, about 50 minutes into the musical, there they are. And
they're singing, "It's all for the best". The juxtaposition of gospel,

I ENJOYED BETTY HAMM'S
THOUGHTFUL ANALYSIS OF "THE OTHERS". I DID TAKE ISSUE WITH SOME OF HER
INSIGHTS, BUT OVERALL I GAVE THE MOVIE A GRADE OF "B".
I ENJOY HORROR MOVIES
FOR MANY OF THE REASONS CITED IN THE REVIEW. MOST HORROR MOVIES TURN INTO
GORE-FESTS VERY QUICKLY AND HAVE LITTLE DEPTH BESIDES SHOCK VALUE. "THE
SIXTH SENSE" WAS A RECENT EXAMPLE THAT WAS NOT GORY, BUT INTELLIGENT AND
THOUGHTFUL. COMPARING RECENT MOVIES WITH "THE SIXTH SENSE" IS LIKE COMPARING
A VAN GOGH PAINTING WITH A FIRST GRADER'S CRAYON DRAWING.
I ALSO ENJOY SEEING
OTHER PEOPLE'S VISION OF THE SPIRITUAL DIMENSIONS. THE BIBLE HAS SOME
GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS ABOUT THE SPIRITUAL WORLD: IN II KINGS 6 ELISHA PRAYS
FOR HIS SERVANTS TO SEE THE FIERY HORSES AND CHARIOTS THAT ARE SURROUNDING
THE VALLEY AND ARE READY TO BATTLE THE KING OF ARAM. IN DANIEL 10, AN
ANGEL APPEARS TO DANIEL BEFORE HIS APOCALYPTIC VISIONS AND TELLS HIM THE
KINGS OF PERSIA HAD OCCUPIED HIM FOR 21 DAYS AND NEEDED ONE OF THE CHIEF
PRINCES TO COME BAIL HIM OUT. WOW! HOLLYWOOD CAN'T EVEN TOUCH STORIES
LIKE THESE! WHAT ARE THESE FIERY HORSES AND CHARIOTS? HOW DO THE PRINCIPALITIES
AND POWERS ENGAGE AND OCCUPY THESE SPIRITUAL BEINGS? HOW DOES THE SPIRIT
WORLD OPERATE? IF YOU ARE PRESENT WITH CHRIST AFTER DEATH AND CHRIST IS
PRESENT WITH THOSE WHO ARE ALIVE, DOES THE SPIRIT WORLD OPERATE ON A LEVEL
THAT THOSE OF US WHO ARE ALIVE ARE COGNIZANT OF?
I DID AGREE WITH BETTY
HAMM'S ANALYSIS OF THE ENDING OF THE MOVIE. NO HOPE, NO JOY AND A FUTURE
STUCK ON A BRITISH ISLAND FOR ETERNITY. IT WAS A STINKER. I WAS NOT FAMILIAR
ENOUGH WITH CATHOLIC THEOLOGY TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE ENDING. WERE THEY
IN SOME KIND OF HALF-WAY HOUSE TO HEAVEN OR HELL? OR SOME OTHER POINT
WHERE THEY COULD WORK THEIR WAY TO HEAVEN?
