Could there be a time when more people know the story of star wars than know that of the present popular world religions?
I mean growing up remember a great many movies being broadcast on TV, not as headliners but during the day when the sound card was no longer on, and they were almost all biblically themed, the old Charllton Heston movies like the Ten Commandments, but those movies arent screened anymore or it seems like its more rarely.
Now I know there's probably copyright reasons why those movies were or are screened, its probably cheaper than movies like Star Wars, but the themes and content I think are at least nominally important and those "big themed" or "logos" movies, hell I'd include the Sinbad and Greek Myth movies under this heading too, arent made or screened so much, imagine if movies like Twilight replaced those are the culture meme?
I think it'd be shite, what do you think?
I'm still waiting on atheisms big moral inspirations or sources of imagination and creativity to bring forth movies et al in the way their precursors did.
