UPLift: Hollywood

A short item addressed to the movie moguls of that stained spot on the map.

by J. Randal Matheny

Hollywood! Oh, Hollywood!
Go learn this truth, if you would:
Moviegoers would be inspired,
But you instead make them tired
Of sex, bad language, rivers of blood;
The public spurns your offensive flood.
If you’d see crowds coming back in,
Go back to films where the good guys win.

  1. Amen and amen. Funny you should write this. I found a comedy show a few of weeks ago called Bananas. I paused for a minute as Jeff Allen told a joke. To my surprise it was clean and the next one was clean and the whole show was clean. There seems to be a Christian morality in the background, but it’s not Christian comedy like Swanberg or Lowry where it’s basically a funny sermon. It was just clean comedy. As Christians we need to support (by support I mean buy their stuff) those who try to live the Christian life in their professional careers. You can find more information about them at bananascomedy.com.
