HT Mockingbird, a Slate piece at Browbeat on how The Iron Giant is not about guns or war but about sin

Also on the film front, finally a confrontational headline from Slate we can all get on board with: “Everyone Misunderstood Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant: It’s Not About Guns. It’s About Sin.” Amen.

Indeed.  Slate has evolved over the last sixteen years into one of those publications with provocative titles that are declarative statements or rhetorical questions of the sort that reminds me of the polemics of ... Christian bloggers. :s

It's still amazing to consider that back in 1999 there was Toy Story 2, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Princess Mononoke, and the Iron Giant.
