HANNAH MONTANA (2009) Movie Review
CHRIST IN CULTURE
GRAPHIC MOVIE REVIEW
SYNOPSIS: When Miley Stewart (aka pop-star Hannah Montana) gets too caught up in the superstar celebrity lifestyle, her dad decides it's time for a total change of scenery. But sweet niblets! Miley must trade in all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood for some ol' blue jeans on the family farm in Tennessee, and question if she can be both Miley Stewart and Hannah Montana.
Hannah Montana The Movie (2009) asks the questions, “Who am I? Where Am I going? What is important?” Self-identity and purpose of being are important matters. Despite the importance of theme, the critics panned the film.
However, the fans made this the best opening day of all-time for a G-rated live-action film ever! There is a real disjunction here with the critics. I agree with the fans. The critics must think they have worked through the important self-identity issues of life and hence overlook the importance of this film on the lives of millions of young fans!
Here is the message of the film: Your self-identity is connected to your family, historical roots and to the direction you are headed. As simple as it may seem, that is a very good statement to be made in a teeny-bopper film. Don’t you think?
