The Art of Movie Conversation

“Talking with you is sort of the conversational equivalent to an out of body experience.” Calvin & Hobbs
Spiritual experiences aside, the art of conversation is alive and well and taking place in neighboring movie theaters. Light and images collide, as characters invite us into their worlds. There, we share the experiences of a frantic but faithful father, NFL dreamers, animated adventurers, a leader in biblical times and a heroic captain for all times (to name a few). Through those surreal scenes, we can harmlessly debate the dangers of artificial intelligence versus the power and fragility of the human mind. We know “Heaven is for Real” because we’ve witnessed great acting from our very own climate-controlled cloud nine. As welcomed witnesses, we undergo moments of “Transcendence” that far surpass other forms of entertainment. We fight for equality among the social classes in “Divergent” and put up our dukes alongside “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” who continues fighting that springtime superhero battle. Feeling no fear, we’re ready to conquer the supernatural (knowing that the spirit world can actually be imaginatively dominated). We happily travel through “Rio 2” animated and actual movie trails, passing “Noah” along the reverent way. We breeze through the beginning of “Draft Day” with hope that our sports stars will heat up the box office in the end.
Before those end credits roll, we’re treated to Heavenly times, indeed, with our sincere thanks to Hollywood…
