The Adjusment Bureau, a quick look

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Since this movie came out so recently, I will keep my comments brief so as to avoid spoiling anyone.  If you want a longer one ( with spoilers ), and don't want to wait for my more thorough analysis ( which will hopefully come in the next few months ), ...

Bones – Hannah vs Brennan and thoughts on worldview

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

This has been my first post in quite some time.  I don't want to do one of my normal analysis type posts on the show Bones as whole just yet.  I just want to comment on one aspect, from a Christian perspective.  I know there are some morally ...

Taken

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

I saw this movie tonight and really enjoyed it. It was great to see a father strive to reconnect with his daughter.  It was great to see him do everything he could to protect his daughter. People can say he was overprotective, but he ended up being right ...

Inkheart

Saturday, January 31st, 2009

I saw this movie last weekend and found it quite entertaining.  I liked it because we got to see a father fight for his family.  Also, I thought the story was interesting. The good: The father strives to protect his family. Dustfinger is a rather cowardly character who at the beginning and through ...

Get Smart

Monday, October 13th, 2008

I wrote this review quite a while ago and wanted to add scripture references, but now I am so far behind in my blog entries I figured I should just give it to people.  Enjoy.  Hopefully in the next few days I will wip out a review on Dark Knight, ...

Prince Caspian, the movie

Monday, June 9th, 2008

Well, tonight I needed a little encouragement, so I decided to give Prince Caspian a second try. God really used it to encourage me, just like I prayed. Anyway, first I want to talk about the movie itself, then I would like to discuss the parts the movie ...

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Saw this over the weekend.  As usual, go here for a more thorough review.  I really do not have many positive or negative thoughts about it, so this will be short. The good: Reconciliation between father, son, and the son's mother - always a good thing. Indiana, as always, lives by his convictions.   ...

How to Read a Book, by Mortimer Adler – chapter 1

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

Just got done reading the first chapter of this book and it really made me think.  One of my friends described the author as a philosopher, and you can definitely see that mindset in the first chapter.  I think it will be a very profitable read. I will get to blogging ...

Some thoughts spurred on from the season finale of Bones

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

OK, I am to tired to do a good job of a review on the Prince Caspian movie ( and, to tell the truth, because I read the book just before seeing the movie, I am kind of biased, but that is a long story ). But I did ...

Prince Caspian – the book

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

In preparation for seeing Prince Caspian tonight, I just finished the book.  I had forgotten a lot of it, but it was still good ( even for an adult ).  Last night it really reminded me to keep my eyes on God, which is always a good reminder.   Also, it ...
