Are Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro Becoming Irrelevant to Today's Film Fans?
In the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino were considered among the greatest actors on the big screen. "Raging Bull," the first two "Godfather" films and even their brief interaction in "Heat." Sadly, some movie mis-steps (Righteous Kill, Little Fockers and Jack and Jill) have put some major holes in their credibility as actors. The reason they may be becoming obsolete in today's films is because they've focused on making easy money instead of taking any acting risks. De Niro has been typecasted as the quiet intense guy and Pacino as the over-the-top loud one. It would be nice if they could flip the script every once in a while to keep audiences on their toes. Pacino and De Niro's best bets would be to go back to their acting roots and go back to basics. If not, Pacino is going to forced to do more HBO films where he can truly act and De Niro will be boiled down to cameo appearances in the occasional film. They may have gotten past the point of proving themselves, but they need to challenge themselves and audiences for everyone to take them seriously again in a new generation.

Most of the Churches have made movements toward cultural appeasement in worship, in ministry, and in what appears to be a watering down version of the Gospel. Yet, we are called, to not be...
