Iron Man – Great Movie (with just a few gripes by me)

Iron Man – Great Movie (with just a few gripes by me)

I just saw Iron Man at the theater. You’ll read some of my criticisms here, but all in all it was a fun and exhilarating cinematic ride. Oh yeah… minimal spoilers, so relax (in case you don’t read comic books)! The Acting This was a pure gem for Robert Downey Jr. as he masterfully filled [...]

Walk the Line

Walk the Line

So while I was blogging about musical movies (like Once) I thought I’d point out another great flick I saw recently… Walk the Line. This movie revolved around the life story of Johnny Cash and starred Joaquin Phoenix (nominated for the 2005 Academy Award as Best Actor) as Cash and Reese Witherspoon(nominated and won the [...]

Once

Once

I can get easily bored with movies. So much cliché… predictability… canned Hollywood repetition. And – being a musician – I am particularly critical of music-centered stories. That being said… I was delightfully surprised by Once. I think the movie is one of the best independent flicks I’ve seen. I watched it with my wife [...]

The Golden Compass – a Christ-follower’s Perspective

The Golden Compass – a Christ-follower’s Perspective

I went to see The Golden Compass. I would have probably skipped this story altogether except for the controversy swirling around it… which, like any controversies, found its way into my email inbox. So not only did I see the movie but I also read the entire book series – called His Dark Materials (The [...]

Grey’s Anatomy With Stormtroopers

Grey’s Anatomy With Stormtroopers

I have crazy dreams. I don’t know if it’s from what I eat or drink, but my dreams are more like twisted movies than anything. I’ve decided to periodically post some of the wilder dreams I have. You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment [...]

Crazy Dreams

Crazy Dreams

I have crazy dreams. I’m not sure if something’s wrong with me, but a recurring theme in my dreams involves my role as a junior military officer whose army is caught in an epic struggle against aliens. Not necessarily against the aliens from the Alien movie series, or E.T., or Close Encounters… just whatever are [...]

WordPress 2.1

WordPress 2.1

I upgraded to WordPress 2.1 last night. It went fairly smooth, but I broke a few things. My plugin that manages my Amazon items is now inoperable, meaning that my cute sidebar items saying what music I’m currently listening to, etc., are now gone. Also, my sections of recommended music, movies, etc. are gone, too. [...]

Saddam – R.I.H.

Saddam – R.I.H.

I know this is old news, but after recovering from the holiday seasonal blitz I had to recap this because it’s important. Saddam is dead. Good. Iraqi justice for an Iraqi tyrant and butcher. Some would say that he will now go to the happy Islamic hunting grounds with his bazillion virgins… but methinks he [...]

Yes, I’m Going To See The Da Vinci Code… Here’s Why

Yes, I’m Going To See The Da Vinci Code… Here’s Why

I am going to see The Da Vinci Code (TDVC) movie as soon as it comes out and I’m able. I am a sincere Christ-follower (an Evangelical Christian) and I don’t believe nearly any of the historical foundation for the story. You may ask, why would you go to this movie then – I thought [...]

Bible Predicts The Matrix

Bible Predicts The Matrix

Well, not really, but I just re-watched The Matrix so it’s fresh on the brain… and today I came across a surprising Bible verse in a wallpaper… of all places. Isaiah 54:16 KJV says “Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his [...]
