Senator: "Do these animals deserve the same protection given to other species? Or should they just be left to die?" Dr. Ian Malcolm: "These creatures were here before us. And if we're not careful... they're going to be here after. Life cannot be contained. Life breaks free. Life... finds a way."

On Facebook? Join in the conversation at The Pop Culture Coram Deo Perpetual After Party Solo has finally shown up and it is making news for all the wrong reasons: The guys from The PCCD Pod get in to it all - Pansexuality, L3's social justice crusade, and why Solo's opening weekend disappointed - all before they dive into the worldview and value of the Solo story. Inside you'll hear a [surprising?] take on the likability of this movie plus how the moral world of Solo leads to...


12 Strong starring Chris Hemsworth by Nicolai Fuglsig

The most important thing a man can take into combat is a reason why. 12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11, ODA 595, under the leadership of Captain Mitch Nelson, who must work with an Afghan warlord to take down a critically important Taliban stronghold.

Avengers: Infinity War

"In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives." - Thanos It's here.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle starring The Rock by Jake Kasdan

"It's a lot easier to be brave when you've got lives to spare. It's a lot harder when you only have one life." Pop Culture Coram Deo is back with some Redbox-friendly movie fare. We're going back to the world of Jumanji except this time there's a haunted Atari-clone video game system rather than a board game (Robin Williams we miss you!). Does the decades-later sequel live up to the original? Either way, is there anything in the film that displays God's glory in a particular way? Time...


A Quiet Place by John Krasinski

"What are we if we can't protect them?" - Evelyn Abbott (Emily Blunt's) to her husband Lee (John Krasinski) in reference to the couple's children.

March Madness!! (and Sports in General) - How should Christians consume popular sports as entertainment?

We're barely past opening weekend and this March has already been particularly mad. Fan of Virginia? Sorry. Fan of underdogs (like the Chicago Loyola Sister Jeans)? Congratulations! The fundamental reality is that Christians make up a significant portion of the throngs of viewers gulping down the excitement of the organic national holiday known as the NCAA Tournament. The guys from the PCCD Pod want to help Christians get the most out of their fandom without falling into the...


Pixar's Coco starring Anthony Gonzalez by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina

We have to podcast. It's not just in us... It is us. Coco is one of Pixar's most beautiful films. It is also one of the studio's most pagan. The film commits to an afterlife - and tells us a host of dangerous lies about the afterlife (admittedly not the ones we'd expect though). So how do viewers (and parents) separate the beautiful from the beautiful lies in Coco. Hit the download button on this episode, press play, and let the guys from The Pop Culture Coram Deo Podcast help you do...


The Last Jedi starring Daisy Ridley by Rian Johnson

"“My disappointment in your performance cannot be overstated.” – Supreme Leader Snoke to Kylo Ren. Also Jeff Wright to Rian Johnson It's time to take The Last Jedi under the Pop Culture Coram Deo microscope. And don't worry, like Kylo's yin to Rey's yang, Jared isn't nearly as negative as Jeff. So where does the image of God show itself in The Last Jedi? Where does fallenness rear its wretched head? Hit that download button, press play, and lets jump into to the latest episode of The Pop...


Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman by Ryan Coogler

Find more Pop Culture Coram Deo on Patheos! I have seen gods fly. I have seen men build weapons that I couldn't even imagine. I have seen aliens drop from the sky. But I have never seen anything like this. Marvel's Black Panther is the latest MCU film to capture truckloads of money and popular acclaim. Beyond those elements the movie has spurred a broad cultural conversation about race, foreign policy, and more. The Pop Culture Coram Deo Podcast dives in to King T'Challa's Wakanda with...


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 starring Chris Pratt by James Gunn

I had a pretty cool dad. What I'm trying to say here is... sometimes that *thing* you're searching for your whole life... is right there by your side all along. And you don't even know it. Time for a new voyage on The Good Ship PCCD! This time we're hoping on board The Milano and taking a spin around the cosmos with Peter, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and [Baby] Groot. What does Vol. 2 yield when examined in the light of God's glory? It isn't just Egomaniacal (see what I did there?) false...


Hostiles starring Christian Bale by Scott Cooper (PCCD 08)

The PCCD Pod is on Patheos now! Visit our new blog for episode companion pieces as well as analysis on subjects not covered in our audio content! Hostiles, the latest Christian Bale vehicle, may just be (in order of escalating significance): 1. The best film of the year in the Western genre. 2. The movie with the most violent opening sequence of 2018. 3. The most Christian film released by secularists this year. Interested? The hosts of Pop Culture Coram Deo will give you the kind of...


Moana starring Dwayne Johnson by Ron Clements and John Musker (PCCD 07)

"Who am I and what should I do?" This is the central question of Moana and all the resources of Disney animated are brought to bear on giving the answer in the most beautiful (both visually and audibly) manner possible. Moana is a remarkable young lady in a world populated by characters both charming and bad counterfeits of The Living God and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. How do we navigate the compelling world of Moana as Christians and parents? Download the episode, press play,...


Dunkirk starring Tom Hardy by Christopher Nolan (PCCD 06)

1 beach, 400,000 British and French soldiers. Nazi forces at their back, in the sky, and in the water. A profound longing for home. The only thing absent? God - if not on the historical beach then at least in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. Nonetheless (and as is usual with Nolan's films) there is much to chew on in Dunkirk. How should Christians think through the film? Press that download button, hit play, and let's talk about it on the latest Pop Culture Coram Deo! Website listeners can...
