Indiana Jones upsets Peru.

Was reading in the Paper that the latest Indiana Jones Movie has upset the people in Peru because of all its inaccuracies in the placing of places in Peru, and for playing a little loose with all the facts.

I was a little surprised by all this, as I have long known that Movies often take large liberties with the facts and locations they use. In fact my mother, when we would comment on something not being quite right on the TV, would respond with, “Well, what do you expect? It is only a Movie and they never let the facts get in the way of a good story, do they?”

What about you? Do you let the facts get in the way of a good story? Or are you always looking for the truth in all that you see and do? Do you just trust in, and take as the Gospel truth, everything you see in a Movie, or even all that you read on the Net? Or do you just use these things as a starting point to look up and find out the real truth on those things that interest you?

So my question today is, how much trust or faith do you put in the things seen in Movies? Over to you for your response.
