Knight of the movies

Peter Jackson.  Great director.  Looking forward to him helping hammer out the hobit movies.  They’ll be two-part movies.  He’s not directing them but writing and producing them.  He definitely deserved this.

Netflix!

We got Netflix now. Megan ordered the first one…A paper heart….I was working and didn’t get to watch it.  Its difficult to pick the movie u want to watch.  There’s a ton.  But it has all the seasons of the office!  The next movie coming is the golden compass.  I thought it looked cool when it came out but I never saw it for some reason.

And the oscar goes to….

Best picture.  I looked at the nominees for that award over the past ten years.  I’d seen some of them and heard of most of them.  I began to think I was missing out on all of these great movies that I have never seen.  Megan and I are probably going to get Netflix soon.  I began looking up some of these movies on Netflix and found they would be available to watch.  I pictured a fun task: watch all the best picture nominees!  I then noticed two movies that were nominated in 2007 that I randomly checked out from the library and watched last summer: No country for Old Men and There Will be Blood.  If you’ve never seen those movies, they are really strange, interesting, almost funny, very violent movies.  I see how they could be nominated for best picture.  They were so unique and I dunno, just such incredible stories of violence.  I kind of liked them.

I’m interested in watching a lot of those best picture movies.  Compromise is what will happen if I watch ALL of them.  Those two I mentioned above were pushing the edge of what I can stand putting before my eyes.  There is a verse I memorized in the psalms a while back that says “I will set before my eyes no vile thing, the deeds of faithless men I hate, men of perverse heart will be far from me, I will have nothing to do with evil.”  I used to be so very cautious about what movies I watched.  I was kinda legalistic about it.  However,  I knew exactly what type of movie was going to be a struggle of sin for me.  I’m not as cautious as I used to be.  I’ve seen really godly people that I respect and listen to watch all sorts of movies without a second thought.  That’s influenced me quite a bit.  I would compromise on my beliefs and sin if I watched the majority of these movies.  We’ll see.  As cheesy as it sounds, before I watch most movies now I go online to find out all the horrid little things about it, and then make a decision on it.

Anyways here’s a music video of a song I liked in high school. I found it when I was movie searching earlier.  I think it fits the subject  Enjoy yo.
