Legion



I just ran across an advertisement for this film, due to be released January 22, 2010. Would you say that our society is hungry for God?

Vampires. Now dark angels who really aren't so dark. These seem to be the new trend; for example, read this article about up-and-coming book releases HERE:

I don't even know where to start with Legion; the Biblical inaccuracies and mangling of the Christian faith even from this small summary are a wonder to behold. Blasphemous? You bet.

For now I'll just post the synopsis as listed on Wikipedia. What do you think?

Legion is an upcoming apocalyptic fantasy film directed by Scott Stewart, from a screenplay written by Peter Schink and Scott Stewart, and starring an ensemble cast headed by Paul Bettany.

After God loses faith in humanity, the archangel Michael (Paul Bettany) is the only one standing between mankind and the apocalypse. This time using angels as the act of Biblical judgment, God's wrath descends on Earth to exterminate the world's population. In a desperate, last-chance gambit, Michael leads a group of strangers to a small New Mexico diner to protect a young waitress who may be pregnant with Christ in his second coming.

Oh...my. The archangel Michael must protect Christ from His own Father? Seriously??? Urgh. Hopefully, this one will be as big a flop as the anti-Christian "Golden Compass." When will Hollywood realize we do not want to pay to go to the theaters to have our faith twisted and mocked?

Sounds familiar. (There have been other movies with similiar themes the last 20 or so years).

I think one of the worst was about a nephalim - part human, part angel - who had the power to send fallen angels back to heaven - supposedly the fallen angels were just 'misunderstood' and that after the fell they realized what they had done and so in turn were doing everything they could to help humanity. Bleh. (so he "saved" them by sending them back if they were truly repetant)

Can you or someone explain the fascination with vampires?? I guess in my son's 5th grade class Friday there were several girls who decided they were vampires and started biting each other.

The movie trailer for this just bothers me, I don't understand why people find it entertaining.

O man, I really wanted to like this one. A legion of angels, an archangel, Paul Bettany . . . {{sigh}} I so hoped it was about something else. . .

Hollywood always seems to find a new low...
