Spirited Storytelling

Once upon a time, writer Walter Benjamin once predicted, “The art of storytelling is reaching its end because the epic side of truth, wisdom, is dying out.”
Epic stories were being told this weekend at our movie theaters, featuring battles in the air, skirmishes at sea and, perhaps most truthfully, a boy and his dog (this particular story comes with a twist). Would it be wise to miss out on all that artistic entertainment?
As a grand, 3-D war was being waged at sea, its story-loving occupants counted more than “300: (reasons to view the) Rise of an Empire” from the highest echelon at the domestic box office this weekend with $45.05 million. DreamWorks Animation’s “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” were having some animated fun from the land of #2 with $32.5 million. Spectators traveling through the latest “Non-Stop” air raid found the atmosphere quite nice at #3 with $15.4 million. The pieces are slowly coming apart for successful “The Lego Movie,” which fell to the #4 spot with $11.1 million. The life of the “Son of God” was being witnessed from the inspiration area of #5 with $10 million.
It’s only the beginning of grand tales in the land of movies as the imagination was on overdrive, animation clashed with epic empires and spirited stories got to the heart of what matters.
From seaside days to starry nights, may your week provide endless adventures and good-for-the-soul storytelling…
