Film Mom: 'The Host' Makes for Good Easter Weekend Entertainment

A successful Christian songwriter once told me that the key to writing a hit faith-based crossover song was to write lyrics that relate to everyone, Christian or not. In other words, if you’re looking for God in the music, you’ll find Him, but if you’re looking for a song about how much you love your boyfriend, that’s what you’ll hear – You Light Up My Life is a perfect example. Some of the most successful movies with Christian elements follow suit.

The Passion of the Christ proved that moviegoers will seek out a straight forward version of the resurrection of Jesus - it grossed $611 million worldwide. But there’s also evidence that audiences like an allegorical version of the greatest story ever told as well. The Matrix, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 collectively earned $844 million.

The Host is not being touted as a faith-based film, but – hello! – it’s right there in the title and opening on Easter weekend. In the film, "the host" refers to a human whose body is overtaken by a peaceful and loving alien spirit. Without giving away the ending, let’s just say those looking for Jesus will find Him. But, those just looking for a thought-provoking movie will be rewarded as well.

Here are all the movies to consider seeing with the family this weekend:

The Host. As I said above, the religious undercurrents of this film are subtle. This Stephenie Meyer-Andrew Niccol mashup offers intriguing sci-fi with a heavy dose of romance, and also delivers enough conversation starters to last through Easter dinner.

G.I. Joe RetaliationThe action sequences are lengthy, the weapons are plentiful and the female Joe’s job is to look pretty so she distracts the enemy – yep, sounds like how boys play with their action figures!

The Croods. Family values haven’t changed much since the beginning of humanity – dads are overprotective and daughters want to explore the world and the boys who inhabit it. While the other movies are only suitable for tweens and teens, the 4-year olds in my screening whole-heartedly enjoyed the antics of this stone-age family.
