Christian Themed Movies Do Better Than Others

Supermanreturnsposter03 Tallskinnykiwi linked to this and it reminded me of a conversation I had the other day with a friend of mine. Apparently, movies with a strong Christian worldview and Christian themes/morality do MUCH better at the box office than movies with strong sexual content or very foul language.  That is really no surprise for anyone who has been paying attention the last couple of years, but it goes against the conventional wisdom that Hollywood dishes out and that Christians lap up. It has gotten to the point that I have no real problem finding movies that have family themes and are about epic adventures full of courage, loyalty, and honor. Yet, we still claim that everyone is out to get us and there are no Christian entertainment options available (as though that was some kind of right of ours or something). I just think that it is interesting that our culture seems to be beginning to value things that are important and they are beginning to tell stories that have weight and meaning. Perhaps we should take notice and do a better job of pointing out the eternal themes that are being explored.
