Are You Just Watching? is about critical thinking for Christians as they watch popular media such as movies and TV shows. We are more than a Christian reviews site since PluggedIn Online already does such a wonderful job. We take a critical look at philosophies and ideas behind and promoted by entertainment media, and then discuss these based on a biblical worldview. For example, the evolutionism in Jurassic Park, the user-program relationship in Tron, or the messianic characteristics of Neo in the Matrix trilogy. Each conversation has one end-objective in mind, that you don't just watch, but also think and learn.

Don’t just watch!

Get armed with critical thinking and find out what’s underneath the skin of the movies and media we watch!

Love this Podcast!

This is the equivalent of coming over to a friend’s home and talking about a show that we watched. Sitting around a table and discussing the Biblical world view in contrast to the show, or even how it may complement it, can really open up thoughtful and meaningful interaction. I recommend this to anyone that desires to look deeper into God’s thoughts as we enjoy Hollywood’s fare.
