How entertainment has changed as America has become less religious - Daily American: News — "The devil exists. God exists," Warren says in the film. "And for us, as people, our very destiny hinges upon which one we elect to follow." "The Conjuring" is a successful example of the kind of entertainment that's becoming increasingly rare - the kind that portrays faith as a positive truth rather than an equivocal superstition.

Movie review: 'Paper Towns' gets lost on a trail of clues — The 305-page novel "Paper Towns" by John Green is propelled by a sense of urgency and a thorny mystery.
