Furious 7

One last ride.

One last ride.

OKLAHOMA CITY – I recently watched Furious 7 with Brazle, Ryan, Miriam, Miriam’s sister and Krystin, and as expected, it is, along with the previous six installments, the greatest movie ever made. The acting, music, script, action, cinematography and family motifs were all the best that this world has ever been able to, can currently or will ever be able to produce. To top it all, the film features a touching sendoff to Paul Walker. In short, this movie is literally the greatest ever.

A.D.!! Apparently complete with sword fighting!

A.D.!! Apparently complete with sword fighting!

Last month, I had the opportunity to catch a sneak preview of the first episode of the new Bible-based miniseries, A.D. Produced by Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Voice) and Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel), this looks to be a great series – indeed, the best thing yet from the world’s leading Christian producers.

I will post my full thoughts on the first episode later this evening – for now, please check out the article in the Christian Chronicle.

Also, check out my reviews of these Bible-based movies:

Thanks! :)

The Island of Doctor Moreau: A Prodigious Review

71cHBBu3N7L

This thrift edition costs like $3.

OKLAHOMA CITY – If you want to be creeped out by a really good book, read H.G. Wells’ The Island of Doctor Moreau. Talk about dark! Published in 1896, the novel is rather short but still manages to deliver an intense and troubling adventure story of a man stranded on an island of vivisection.

Yes, an island of vivisection.

Journey to the Center of the Earth: A Chimerical Review of a Book Wonderful for Both Bibliomaniacs and Non-bibliomaniacs Alike

613P1PSfQMLOKLAHOMA CITY – Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth is a great book. Quick and charming, the third entry in Verne’s Extraordinary Voyages manages to convey an exciting story with scientific elements that, while being quite out-of-date, manage to provide a wonderful scholarly spice.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies: A Review of a Shameless Money Grab

The defining chapter? Too bad the definition is "atrocious".

The defining chapter? Too bad the definition is “atrocious.”

For my thoughts on the first two “Hobbit” movies, click the following links:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Tolkien 

OKLAHOMA CITY – Thank heavens – the trilogy of movies ostensibly based on J.R.R. Tokien’s The Hobbit has finally come to a close! In the first two movies, it was exceedingly clear that not only would Peter Jackson recklessly abandon his source material but that he would interpose elements of his own creation, as if to improve upon Tolkien’s masterpiece. Now, after watching the third “Hobbit” movie (if it can even be called that), I am certain that Tolkien’s The Hobbit has yet to be delivered on the silver screen.
