Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Darkness and Light

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Darkness and Light

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice fits perfectly into the Easter Season, although I’m pretty sure the seasons of the Church year had absolutely nothing to do with the consideration of release dates by Zack Snyder and crew. The film is also the first in two comic book movies this year that are pitting the good guys against each other. Maybe the film industry is tapping into our culture’s difficulty with intelligent and mature conflict resolution.The darkness in Bruce Wayne’s (B...

Eye in the Sky - Value of one Life

Eye in the Sky - Value of one Life

Ethical dilemmas abound in "Eye in the Sky" and the filmmakers respect the audience enough that they don’t preach an easy conclusion. Although a course of action is finally decided upon, the viewer is left to wonder, “If I were in that situation, what would I have done?” or even, “What is the right thing to do in this situation?” There are no easy answers and I could feel the same tension that the characters experienced.

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.

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

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.
