Bad Ragnar Lothbrok!

Bad Ragnar Lothbrok!

It Was the Worst of Times,…actually that about sums it up I have just realized, the Old Testament (OT) is a picture of a father dealing with an infant, then toddler, then tween. This is why Yahweh’s ways seem so barbaric to us now. We live in an age after the Messiah has returned. When […]

Interstellar, The Fifth Dimension and Jesus Christ

Interstellar, The Fifth Dimension and Jesus Christ

Interstellar was simply stellar! Although, I am sure you have heard me say that about many movies about which I have written (except for maybe the non-fairy tale Bridge to Tarabithia), this one was truly exceptional…well atlas what I saw in it was. So here is my take. It just seems that my eyes are […]

I Wonder…Do You?

I Wonder...Do You?

Just watched another fantastic fairytale: Rise of the Guardians!  As usual I am so entirely enveloped, that to even explain what I experience while watching such a tale (or reading one) is to invite slight puzzlement as most see such tales as simple child’s play.  Yet there is a “deep magic” in myth, undeniable truth, […]

I am an insatiable fan of story telling, whether on pages or the screen, and […]

On Apocalypto

On Apocalypto

I just finished watching Apocalypto. My muscles are just starting to ease. A combination of adrenaline, caffeine and sheer emotion flooded my body early on in the movie. Whenever the barbaric tribe attacked the peaceful tribe, I felt a ball of rage begin to grow in my belly with each passing injustice. Although a few […]

On Bridge to Terabithia (the movie)

On Bridge to Terabithia (the movie)

(SPOILER: if you have not seen the movie and you don’t want to know what happens, don’t read this yet) This was a wonderful movie but a very stupid fairytale. My sister and my son and I went to see Bridge to Terabithia with mounting anticipation and hand rubbing excitement. We were not sure what […]
