Certainly, modern movies have better special effects than old movies and, because of that, there are more possibilities. However, that’s a double-edged sword. On the one hand, films like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness or Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
Good one John. Fair assessment all around. What hits me the most is a feeling of sadness that people would actually take or learn lessons from the movies. It’s the movies for fuck’s sake, right? I guess I’m sad because we are truly that impressionable? 🤷🏻♂️
It is like the awful portrayal of faithful people in movies. It isn't possible according to orthodox movie making. A faithful person acts on faith, which includes an internal logic not easily observable. But anything shown on screen is supposed to fit into screen logic. Hence someone standing up for faith based teaching in schools has to field pet theories about Scopes trial and reject science. Spoiler alert, Science came from faith based learning and Scopes trial endorsed racism and phrenology over faith.
