Last Days in the Desert - The Human Face of God

Last Days in the Desert - The Human Face of God

Writer-director Rodrigo Garcia imagines one possible scenario that might have happened to Jesus as he wandered at the tail end of his 40 days of fasting and praying. And wander he does, and then more wandering, and even more wandering. The landscape is bare, rocky, dusty, hot, and seemingly endless, not a nice place to get stuck in. It is here that Yeshua (Ewan McGregor) kneels in the dirt and mutters, “Father, where are you?” We see a broken Jesus. His ratty robes and grungy face do little to...

Money Monster - Demanding Answers

Money Monster - Demanding Answers

There’s a parable in the Gospel about a man who owed a lot. Not being able to pay, he begged for mercy and it was granted him. Then he turned around a neglected to show mercy to someone who owed him just a fraction of what he had owed. Wrong way to go about things, don’t you think? When it comes to moral and ethical living, we Christians acknowledge there is a right way to do things and a wrong way. Kyle Budwell (Jack O’Connell) had a just demand but he went about getting his answer the wrong...

Captain America: Civil War - Consequences

Captain America: Civil War - Consequences

The great anticipation that’s been building up since the last Avengers film is finally over. "Captain America: Civil War" bounded into the theaters this past weekend with all the superheroes one could possibly want (with the exception of Thor and Hulk). Oh, well. I suppose we can’t have everything. Although billed as a Captain America film, it might as well have been “Avengers 3.”

The Dark Horse - From Brokenness to Compaasion

"The Dark Horse," the true story of New Zealand speed chess champion, Genesis Potini (Cliff Curtis), radiates compassion and mercy. Potini suffers with bipolar disorder. The opening scene sets the tone for the whole film. Gen, as he is called, wanders the rain-soaked streets wrapped in a patchwork quilt. He’s drawn to a pawn shop by the chess set in the window. The people in the shop show him compassion as he’s obviously mentally disturbed but they don’t quite know what to do with him.

The Jungle Book - We're Stronger Together

The Jungle Book - We're Stronger Together

Rudyard Kipling’s timeless story of the boy raised by wolves in the jungle returns to the big screen once again, courtesy of Disney Studios. If you remember the animated 1967 version, I just bet you’re humming the tune for “Bare Necessities” in your head right this minute. This live-action version of the story features only one live person, the man-cub Mowgli (Neel Sethi), although the digital wizardry performed by the filmmakers just might have us believing that the animals are real, too.

Allegiant - Deception and Truth

You can now add The Divergent Series to the number of film franchises that have suffered from studio greed and have failed audiences by unnecessarily splitting the last part of the story into two films. It happened to The Hunger Games and Twilight and the ridiculous trend backfires once again with the latest film in the Divergent series, Allegiant.With the death of Jeanine in Insurgent, Tris (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James), Peter (Miles Teller), Christina (Zoe Kravitz), and Caleb (Ansel El...
