    At least you can appreciate The Mighty Jon Voight in Transformers playing a REAL SecDef... :p

    Never meant to imply it was anything else. It is acting. Colin Farrell did a great job of it playing FBI Special Agent Danny Wetwer in Minority Report. The Wetwer character was a very pious Christian who prayed twice on screen. Once before engaging in fisticuffs with the movie's hero protaganist and once before he was executed by the movie villain. I felt that Farrell did a very good job of pulling that role off.

    Very good point and something I hardly noticed being a fan of the film. Nice observation.

    I don't go see a lot of movies at the theater, I have HBO and a dvd player and generally wait to watch them on one or the other.

    What I've noticed is that there aren't many happy movies out there. Most are dark, violent and many are stupid. I haven't seen The Dark Knight yet, and know that it is coming onto video in December. I've read good reviews, but I have heard its really intensely violent and very dark in tone. I'm kind of hesitant to see it, or I would have gone to the theater.

    I watched Elizabeth: The Golden Age on HBO recently and found that to be good. I really liked Hairspray, and so did my nieces.

    whats essentially different in the Batman movies of late is that the violence much more resembles violence portrayed on screen prior to the film MPAA ratings. Yes their is stabbing, and bullets and fighting....but you see little blood, if any and most of the really violent scenes are portrayed with peoples backs to you or out of the camera shot.
    At least that's my take.

    The Theater worker in California just got fired/resigned under pressure for espousing his pro prop 8 views.

    The Christians who were assaulted in the Castro district,

    Christianity is under a full out assault and YOUR freedoms as well as mine are at risk if the anti-Christians succeed.
