Here's an article you all might enjoy, humerous look at how the apocolyptic messages of JW's inspired Roland ( 2012, Day After Tomorrow ) Emmerich
Director Roland Emmerich inspired by Jehovah's Witnesses
Hi Hud - Welcome to JWN.
This was funny:
Interesting article. Looks like you wrote it. Did you actually interview Emmerich, or is this creative writing?
Yes, many creative liberties were taken!
I had been introduced to the book 'Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained' through my father and a point he had always made was how fearful the pictures of children and dogs falling helplessly into the abyss made him feel.
Taking that into consideration I felt using Roland Emmerich and his images of destruction were inspired by way of the book and Jehovah's Witnesses would make a humerous article.
Posting again for anyone who hasn't had a chance to check out the article.
