I'm a big fan of Tom Hanks--IMO, he's never made either a trivial or bad movie. I bet he could make a bad movie good, in my eyes.
So I'm sure I'll have to end up seeing it, although not at the theater (or drive in--a rare entity that exists and thrives in my town--triple
Something that got my curiosity up about Hanks doing this, though, is that I've read it mentioned that he is a 'Christian.' (I put that in quotes
because #1 I don't know if those are his words or the assessments of other people and #2 I don't know what exactly that means, in relative terms,
i.e. what he believes, yada yada)
And of course, it matters little to me what he believes--that's his business (and God's if they choose to make it so).
BUT, judging from the prevalent traditional christian opinion on the book and no doubt, the upcoming flick, it seems odd that he would be doing this
if he shared those same ideations...
Anyone heard anything about that angle?
