Hey, welcome to watchmojo.com. I’m your host Melissa and today, we’re talking about the Seven Deadly Sins. Now, we are all familiar with the sins, some a little more than others, but regardless of that, we can all think of a movie whose theme is base on one of the sins. And believe it not, not all movies are just for education, some actually try to convey a message to its audience.
Now, let’s take a look at the sins in action, pride. Pride is excessive belief in ones own ability that interferes with the individual’s recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sins from which all others arise. Pride is also known as vanity. So where do we see pride in the movies? How about the Devil’s Advocate. John sees the ego and vanity in his newest recruit Kevin by showering him with wealth. And John himself says, “Vanity, definitely my favorite sin.”
The most simple, envy. Envy is the desire for other’s traits, status, abilities or situation. So almost every movie has some envy on it. But how about Snow White? After all, the fairytale is based on a jealous queen who wants to get rid of her stepdaughter, Snow White.
But it doesn’t get more basic than that, wrath. Wrath is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It’s also known as anger. In Sin City, we follow three stories. One of which focuses on the character Marv, who seeks vengeance for the murder of the woman he loves.
Sloth, sloth is is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work. A classic example comes from Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman. Now, Willy Loman is about to lose his job, can’t pay his bills and his sons don’t respect him. So he wonders what went wrong and how he can fix this for his family. So what did he do? He decides the best solution is to kill himself, but really, he takes the easy way out.
Greed, grieve is the desire from material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. Wall Street is the example, but how about Fargo, after all the play is baes on Jerry’s plan to have two men kidnap his wife so he could collect ransom money from his wealthy father in law.
Gluttony, gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires, an addiction. In the movie Blow, Georgia’s family struggles to make and makes a promise to himself that he will then end up with the same faith. So he starts his own marijuana operation, it’s very successful. But when he hears about cocaine, he goes into that and tries to bigger and better, and when he does succeed, he ends up paying the price in the end.
Lust, lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body. Everyone knows feeling or attraction is a prime example for lust. Dan is a happily married man, who gives in to a temptation to the body. And when his wife and kids are away for the weekend, he and colleague Alex decided to have a little fun.
