On Monday night we went on a trip to the cinema in the capital city, Podgorica. They have a fairly new mall there – Delta City – it’s pretty smart and impressive with a cinema complex but just doesn’t feel like Montenegro to me. Ah well, the times they are a changing.
We went to watch the Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I am a massive Narnia fan but, as with the other Narnian films, I was disappointed. That is mainly because I am grumpy and difficult to please. You can read my critique of the film next week, which gives you a bit longer to watch it before I spoil it for you – it is worth watching, honestly.
So there were 14 of us in the cinema, all from church or English conversation club friends. It was nice to have it to ourselves. Anya provided some entertainment when her tooth fell out and landed in her coca-cola bottle! Less than two hours in coke and the tooth went brown!
The main theme of the film was inspiring – there is evil out there, it will tempt you from within, are you strong enough to overcome the evil within? The main characters all had personal struggles, they are heroes but they struggle. I do not believe that any of us are strong enough to overcome the evil within. We are all broken and bad people and we need the love of God in us to overcome the evil within us. I say the only way to stop the evil inside creeping out and hurting ourselves and other people is to surrender to God. He knows what is best and when we invite him to guide us and help us then we can defeat the evil in our hearts and begin to shine.
