Greydanus: “No Movies, Please. We’re Catholic.”

Steven Greydanus is on a roll. His latest entries at The National Catholic Register are worth your attention.

In “No Movies, Please. We’re Catholic,” he responds to readers who think that avoidance of secular entertainment and art is somehow better than engaging our culture.

What movie is so artistically or morally impeccable that it is beyond criticism? That’s not an argument against anyone watching movies, it’s a call to prudential judgment. What is not beyond criticism may be wholesome or not, valuable or not.

In another post, “What Cannot Be Seen,” he raised interesting questions inspired by the new trailer for the animated film Tales from Earthsea, a film based on the books of Ursula Le Guin.
