Philosophy on Film

My purpose and motivation in watching and reviewing films is not just for the sake of entertainment or escapism, or merely for the sake of doing so. My philosophy has to do with more than that.

Ask yourself, how is this film influential? What message is it conveying? What's good and/or bad about it? Is it enlightening, and how?

My challenge to you (actually, two challenges):
1. Go deeper than just watching a film. Talk about it. Be discerning and wise as well, in terms of content issues (depending on your beliefs).
2. As encouraging and influential as films can be, don't let them be your gospel.
