Are You Just Watching?

Religion & Spirituality >

Are You Just Watching? is about critical thinking for Christians as they watch popular media such as movies and TV shows. We are more than a Christian reviews site since PluggedIn Online already does such a wonderful job. We take a critical look at philosophies and ideas behind and promoted by entertainment media, and then discuss these based on a biblical worldview. For example, the evolutionism in Jurassic Park, the user-program relationship in Tron, or the messianic characteristics of Neo in the Matrix trilogy. Each conversation has one end-objective in mind, that you don't just watch, but also think and learn.
