The Finest Hours - Humility in Action

The Finest Hours - Humility in Action

Humility. It’s a virtue that is sometimes misunderstood to mean that we should demean ourselves and consider ourselves as unworthy of another's esteem. Not so. True humility is being aware of our strengths and weaknesses and being honest about them. Humility is not letting our strengths over-inflate our egos or letting our weaknesses discourage us from trying to do better. "The Finest Hours" gives us examples of true humility in action.

The Revenant - intense, gory saga of love and revenge

The Revenant - intense, gory saga of love and revenge

Water, breath, fire, wind. Ice, snow, cold, wet. Pain and more pain. Violence, so much violence. Heartbreak, loneliness. Beauty and cruelty. Betrayal and treachery. Death, so much death. Whispers from beyond yet near and signs of hope. Body and soul, love and sacrifice. The natural and unnatural in a tension that hemorrhages blood and life. This is just a sample of what Alejandro G. Iñárritu's "The Revenant" is about.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Searching for a Savior

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Searching for a Savior

The great delight of "The Force Awakens" is the melding of old and new seamlessly. We meet Rey (Daisy Ridley), a poor scavenger girl on a planet that seems to be full of nothing but sand and junk. She’s definitely more than meets the eye. We meet Finn (John Boyega), the stormtrooper with a conscience. Throughout the story, it’s obvious that these are the characters that will carry Star Wars into the next generation.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation Movie Review

I’m quite the sap for action films. I like the fast paced, heart-stopping sequences. In general, my life as a religious sister is pretty low key (one would certainly hope so, right?), so like many theater goers, I enjoy living vicariously through film for a couple of hours every once-in-a-while. And as a Mission Impossible fan since Jon Voight fell into the river with bloody hands back in 1996, my sense of anticipation was high. Rogue Nation does not disappoint.

Ant-Man Movie Review

If you’re a big fan of the ever-expanding Marvel cinematic universe, you’ll love the addition of Ant-Man to the mix. If you’re just out to see a movie and pick this one because it sounds weird and the show time is right, you’re in for some laughs but probably won’t be overly impressed by the standard super hero plot.

Jurassic World Movie Review

Jurassic World Movie Review

I first saw the 1993 Jurassic Park movie on a really small TV screen, probably about 15 inches. There were five Sisters, including myself, crowded around this little TV. The picture was pretty bad according to today’s standards and the sound was in and out. Despite not having the big screen experience, I was scared out of my wits and jumped off my seat screaming at all the appropriate times but especially when the little girl found Samuel L. Jackson. I loved it.Fast forward 22 years to Jurassic...
