Hamlet 2Posted: June 17, 2008
Where is Christ in the Culture Today? From now on Tuesday’s post will be dealing with the Culture and Christ. I happen to take my younger cousin to a movie the other night (Leatherbacks) when seeing the previews for quite the disturbing movie coming out August 22nd called, Hamlet 2. Take a look for yourself.
I am remembered of the following… Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
The movie is be a comedy, a kind of “turn for the worse” high-school thing, where a teacher can help rally his Tucson, AZ students as he conceives and stages a politically incorrect musical sequel to Shakespeare’s Hamlet. But in doing so, adds Jesus Christ to the play, to add character, flavor and spunk. In doing so, the results are quite offensive. Not only does it distort Christ and who He is, but directly attacks His character in EVERY way. If you have any thoughts, please do leave them.
