So how does Romania view us? Or the world in general? Jake does a good job portraying the need to rise above the noise coming out of Hollywood and present Christ, Savior, Redeemer, God Incarnate, holy living and joy. Kind of like the movie Galaxy Quest, ” We saw your radio transmissions but need your leader”, many see and imitate, to our shame. Even more, now, the need to live lives worthy of the calling.

Hollywood, like it or not, is America’s greatest evangelist around the world. What happens in Hollywood travels around the globe, the good, the bad, and the ugly. No one (speaking in hyperbole) cares about British cinema, Canadian cinema, Romanian cinema. No one outside India and a few niche markets cares about Bollywood. But when a movie comes out of Hollywood, the world notices. When Hollywood announces a new blockbuster thriller, people around the world wait to grab it up as soon as they can, at theaters, in video stores, online through bit torrent. Like it or not, Hollywood, with all it’s flashy immorality, is transforming the globe.
I love movies, I really love movies – big summer blockbusters, low-budget independent films, little-known foreign flicks, I love ‘em all, but I’ve had a lot of conversations with people lately that honestly make me really mad at Hollywood and ashamed to be an American.
