Arrival

Podcast: Reel World Theology
Guest: Aaron
Synopsis: We get to talk about the most original sci-fi film we’ve seen this year. Not only do we all love original sci-fi, but this film gives us so much to discuss– which means it is doing exactly what we think good sci-fi should be doing. While the movie does not come out and make explicit arguments for these things, the film sparks conversations about free will, abortion, God’s perspective on time, and pain and suffering. I also mispronounce Villanueve’s name horribly!

They talk about the film’s Spielberg-ness and how it wrestles with ideas of love and forgiveness.

Warcraft

Podcast: Reel World Theology
Guest: Aaron
Synopsis:On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast, we get the chance to really “nerd out” about Warcraft, a film that’d arguably been 20 years in the making. From it’s beginnings with real-time strategy game Warcraft: Orcs and Humans to the incredibly popular MMORPG World of Warcraft, Blizzard’s flagship game has influenced countless lives and sucked many hours of life away to the fantasy world of Azeroth. We get together a few current and former players to talk about expectations, video game movies, fantasy epics, and, honestly, take license to embrace our inner geek. Does the Warcraft film scratch that nostalgic itch? We discuss!
