#072 – Batman Begins and Being Ruled By Fear

On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:

bb001It’s one of those magic times during the year when our schedule opens up and we get to take a look at films past. I have been wanting to have a conversation about Batman Begins since I first saw it. Over the past decade, Batman has become one of the most popular comic heroes in the world. A lot of that is in part to his intrinsically tormented storyline, his over-the-top adversaries, his lack of super powers, and, of course, Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. I gather some huge comic book fans– one of whom may be the biggest Batman fan of all time– to join me in discussing why Batman is so well-loved and why Batman Begins is a cinematic milestone. Enjoy!

Another great quote about what we say and what we do, this one from Don Miller:

“What I believe is not what i say I believe. What I believe is what I do.”

A great quote from Blue Like Jazz with which the Apostle James would agree.

Ha. Hopefully Paul would agree as well since JR made a great point that James and Paul were totally on the same page, though people think they are at odds. Great quote!
