A SPIRITUAL WORD from david bruce

SPIRITUAL THEMES

Here is the sad truth about Sky Captain. Most of the time I go to movies looking for “Spiritual” themes. Most of the time I am able to get them and in the process, hopefully enjoy the movie. Then there are other times that I go, and just end up enjoying the movie. Let me make something perfectly clear, I am okay with that, even though that is not always my intent. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow was a movie that I just simply enjoyed. I enjoyed the characters, I enjoyed the reflection of the old television and movie serials, I enjoyed the innovative style of making the movie, and I enjoyed the bag of popcorn and diet Dr. Pepper. I enjoyed seeing my son smile and holding my wife’s hand. For all of those reasons I also enjoy that I didn’t have to think to deeply about this movie. I don’t know if that was the intent and am frankly kind of glad of it. Truth be told, sometimes I think I look too hard at trying to figure out Spiritual things in a movie when I don’t have to. Sometimes, going just to have fun is enough and this is a movie I simply had fun at.
--Mike Furches

Perhaps the moral of the story is that God loves us and hates sin. Perhaps the parallel is that God doesn’t like to see man destroying himself any more than Mr. Dead Head did. But rather than recreating a genetically altered, sinless Adam and Eve, God gave the world a second chance through his promises; the promise of a Messiah who would save man from his sin, the promise of a new heaven and a new earth, and the promises of the Holy Spirit to help guide us through this crazy life. I loved Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. I can’t wait to see it again and pick up all of the tiny references, jokes, and parallels that I missed the first time!
