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.

"Midnight Special," the new film from "Mud" director, Jeff Nichols, follows Alton Meyer (Jaeden Lieberher) on his journey of discovering who he is and where he belongs. Sounds pretty normal, right? Not in Alton’s case. This 8-year-old boy has special powers of some kind. He can’t go out in daylight and this bright light shoots from his eyes whenever he removes the blue goggles he wears.

Cinema Divina Reflection - Woman in Gold

From time to time, instead of an actual review, we will be posting an example of how film can be brought to prayer using a format called "Cinema Divina." It's a modern spin on the ancient prayer form of "Lectio Divina" practiced since the days of the early Church. Please click on the link below for a detailed explanation of Cinema Divina. This reflection is the outcome of one person's prayer, connecting Scripture, film, and everyday life. We hope that in reading it, you might be inspired to do y...

The Young Messiah

The Young Messiah

An imaginative portrayal of one year in the life of the Child Jesus. The story begins with Jesus in Egypt being bullied by another boy from the Jewish community, and escalates into some gripping action which it maintains to one degree or another throughout the film. Never boring. Never trite. Faithful to the Scriptures and with sound theology, this film has everything in it but the sensational.

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 outer story of Clavius’s search for Christ provides the framewo...
