Movie Critique: "THE MOVIE HERO"

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

I just now watched "THE MOVIE HERO", and my first impression was how talented the cast was, and how hard they must have studied and rehearsed.

Having a wee bit of experience at acting in a couple of local community theatre productions, I can appreciate how much effort is involved in memorizing that much dialogue.

Also, when treading the boards, you don't just memorize and parrot a script - - - you must exhibit realistic emotions, body language, and facial expressions, in order to convince the audience that you really are the character you're pretending to be.

But, the most important lesson from this particular movie - - - and it is indeed a worthwhile lesson - - - is its philosophy, which I deem to be significantly true.

We each should live our individual lives as though we really are in front of an audience, starring in our own production.

Can you see your audience?

In our mortal lives, do we not constantly interact with other human beings, and do we not affect each other's moods, ideas, and actions?

Aren't we always being observed by unseen mischievously curious wee ones, who would emulate every sinful or dangerous thing we do?

What about our ancestors and deceased loved ones who observe us from the other side of the veil?

What of the myriad unborn spirits waiting to enter mortality?

What of the angels and the gods, even our Heavenly Father?

Are they not our audience?

Are we not performing for them?

Are we not the hero of our own show?

Similarly, we are also the sidekick, love interest, victim, and villain in other people's personal productions.

My own movie is an epic production with a cast of thousands and a budget of millions, but due to a contract dispute, I have yet to collect any royalties or residuals.

And, does anyone know why my leading lady hasn't shown up on the set?

I got a kick out of this movie, and I reckon you will, too.

The only objectionable thing was that the engaged couple lived together.

But, in this world we now live in, such misconduct ain't hardly noticable, is it?

So, parents, please remember to watch the movie WITH your young'uns, and make sure BOTH Mommy and Daddy are there, so the kids get a balanced commentary when you are passing on life's lessons.

I urge you to do that with ALL movies, because Hollywood and public schools can no longer be trusted with your children and your values.

"THE MOVIE HERO" is an entertaining film that will make you think.

Pass the popcorn, please.

Thank you.
