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 ), ...

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.   ...

Iron Man

Saturday, May 10th, 2008

Last weekend I saw Iron Man, so I wanted to comment on it. First, go here for a more thorough review. Below are just my thoughts about it from a moral and Christian standpoint. Good things: The main character ( Stark ) changes his ways - always good to see ...

10,000 BC

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

I just saw this tonight and liked it a lot.  See here for a more thorough review, but here are my thoughts. The Good: Heroism and people fighting ( and dying ) for the needs and benefits of others. Honesty.  When D'Leh wins the white spear by accident, he returns the spear, thus ...

Vantage Point

Sunday, March 9th, 2008

Totally forgot to do this.  I saw this movie opening night, but have not had a chance to discuss it.  I liked it.  The movie is NOT for everyone.  See here for a more thorough review.  One thing that irritated people in my showing was that it goes over the ...
