Between entertainment and the Truth

I was watching Despicable Me 2 - yes it was enjoyable BUT there is in it to me, a dark side to it. Especially when those minions turned into mini monsters. One thing that really caught my attention was when the monster minions were attacking and they were in droves and they came like waves. It had me wondering.. is this satan's work trying to further blur out the truth from illusion?

Because that scene immediately reminds me of an ayat in the Quran :

"On that day We shall leave them (Yajuj and Ma'juj) to surge like waves on one another: the trumpet will be blown, and We shall collect them all together." Al-Kahf 18:99

It scares me.

There is also another thing that will happen near judgement day, that is now quite common in monster and beast movies - a beast coming from the earth.

"And when the Word is fulfilled against them (the unjust), we shall produce from the earth a beast to (face) them: He will speak to them, for that mankind did not believe with assurance in Our Signs" An-Naml 27:82

And what about this... familiar?

The Fire will burn their faces, and they will therein grin, with their lips displaced.
Al-Muminuun,  23:104

Now, if these are made into such movies for entertainment, will the people believe when they are told of this ayats? Or when it really happens and people are trying to warn others of it - it may be said that the teller has watched too many movies.

However, this is in a Book that was revealed 1400 years ago.

Ya Allah, in this world full of illusion and deceit, guide us to the Truth, and make us among those who will enter Jannah and be saved from Hellfire.
