Union Presbyterian Seminary student Jeff Smith says, “Overall, this movie does a great job of making the audience think a bit more abouttheir understanding of God and God’s  activity or inactivity in the world. It clearly points out that we are not God for a reason (mainly because we are sinners and would abuse God’s powers to elevate ourselves) and that it’s good that God’s in control and see’s the bigger picture of our lives. It urges us to surrender to God’s will and to find fulfillment in the places in which God has placed us to serve.”

This film is a great one for challenging us to look at our lives
and see the injustice and sin that we all experience and carry out. It is a good film for bringing humility to bear and bringing out our honest feelings. If we are made to see the things in ourselves that make us uncomfortable, it is a starting point for change.

Monsters, Inc.

This is a family movie intended to entertain while offering a story on morality and character. There is a range of intentions from the simple story for little children that laughter is stronger than being scared to a complex interwoven story of morality, corporate responsibility and profitability.
