Oscars - 88th Academy Awards - winning films reviewed by IssuesEtc

The 88th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honouring the best films of 2015, were largely overshadowed by questions of Hollywood racism. The host of the ceremony was Chris Rock, an African American Comedian. His scathing opening monologue worked not to guilt Hollywood into change but rather to shame them into change. Missed the monologue? Take a look. 

The rest of this post details Oscar Winning films that were reviewed by Pr. Ted Giese and were featured on the Lutheran radio programme IssuesEtc. Not every Oscar winning film of the past year were reviewed by Giese and Wilken. Curious to see what Lutherans think about these Oscar winning films and other films? Follow the links in this post and listen here for audio of radio interviews about films from a Christian perspective with Pastors Ted Giese and Todd Wilken on IssuesEtc.org where Christianity meets culture.
