Spidey gets religion

Here at millinerd, we often try to point out hidden gospel themes in films (sometimes despite them). Having been coaxed to Spider Man 3 tonight against my will (I thought it'd be lame), I'm sorry to be unable to perform my usual task. There is no hidden gospel theme to point out in Spider Man 3, because the theme is completely unhidden, even obvious down to forgiveness only possible through the cross or demons weakened by the sound of church bells. Despite ten thousand eulogies, American Christian culture somehow persists.

The questionable effort to make a sci-fi Christian production company now looks all the more bizzare, as it's already been done... well.
