Thousand Foot Krutch

Thousand Foot Krutch
I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

It is a great movie! Just watched it tonight with some girls. Of course it was on TV, which makes it an interesting experience...

Interesting Notes

I noticed a couple things: the little girl that Cal grabs so he can get on a lifeboat does indeed survive, you can see her in a corner on his lifeboat. He was not holding her. (And did anyone notice that ALL the kids in that movie were quite unresisting to adults grabbing them? Ah, hail to a gentler, better time!)

When Jack is yelling, "You know me, Rose!" as Lovejay (who dies) is yanking him away because he is arrested, the audience is thinking to themselves - but she's only known for a few days! Well, think of that term more in Biblical terms - "and he knew her and she had a child" - and you get the irony and double meaning of that phrase!


1) When the ship goes under Jack is torn away from her and falls, but he comes up. Later, Jack falls the exact same way when she lets go of him and pushes him over the side of the door she's floating on to his watery grave.

2) Cal says to Rose, "I should have kept that drawing. It'll be worth a fortune in the morning." Cal, of course, making the jacka** assumption that Jack will die. This is foreshadowing, for remember that Jack does die, and the painting does survive - underwater. And when the people in the present use it to find Rose, they do discover the drawing is attached to a fortune, in the form of the heart of the ocean.


And can we find God in it?

Well, if we think about it, Jack saves Rose's life in the beginning and she spends the rest of the movie dedicated to him and doing everything in her power to either die with him or stay with him. He dies, essentially giving his life for hers, because they cannot both be on the door and he lets her get on it. She lives and she discovers a treasure that she keeps for the rest of her life, as she goes about doing what Jack says she should do. At the end of the movie she dies (I declare she dies) and re-joins Jack.

Jack sounds a bit like Christ, if we stretch the imagination hard, and Rose could be the Church. Christ gave his life for ours and we live according to His will. Eventually we will die and go to Heaven and live with Him forever. Rose's mother and fiance could be the devil and the earth, both of which try to bind us and keep us from Christ and becoming Christians.

Ok, it may be stretching the imagination and putting a sign where there's no hole, but it could happen!

What do you think?!

Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,
