As you well know, there’s a new Star Wars movie. Is it good? Yeah, it’s okay. Do a lot of people hate it? Yeah, a good number of people despise it. Does that make sense? It seems to depend on whether or not you are a super major Star Wars fanatic.
Adventures in Bible Translations: Luke 22:31-32 and 2nd-Person Pronouns in Modern English
NOTE: this article assumes that the reader understands the distinction between literal, word-for-word Bible translations and less literal, thought-for-thought translations. If one is not familiar or needs a refresher, check out this quick article outlining the differences.
About a year ago, I was sitting in my Thursday night Spanish bible class, and the teacher was using Luke 22:31-32 as his text.
Is Blade Runner 2049 Good??
Author’s note: I originally wrote this in mid-October, and I’m just now publishing it. I know it’s late – hopefully someone still finds it useful.
EDMOND – One of my Facebook friends posted this: “Is Blade Runner 2049 good? Continue reading
Dunkirk: A Must-Read Review
MY HOUSE – So, I watched Dunkirk 1.9 times in the theater. How can someone watch a movie 0.9 times? Continue reading
War for the Planet of the Apes: A Primatial Review
MY HOUSE – I recently caught a showing of “War for the Planet of the Apes.” It is a gorgeous, well-produced, well-scored, and (fairly) well-acted movie that has the greatest CGI I’ve ever seen. The apes are truly a sight to behold. Continue reading
Bill Badger and the Wandering Wind: A Short Review
OKLAHOMA CITY – It cracks me up that I’m writing a review of a book called Bill Badger and the Wandering Wind. It is just a tad ridiculous. But, it is a book I read (somewhat) recently, and I wish to convey my thoughts.
The Fate of the Furious: An Accurate Review
OKLAHOMA CITY – About two months ago I attended a showing of The Fate of the Furious. It was magnificent.
Literally, not figuratively but literally, there is, has never been and probably never will be a finer motion picture than this. It is completely without flaws. Continue reading
Prince of Egypt: My Review; or, Better Late than Never
OKLAHOMA CITY – A couple of months ago, I posted a column previewing what would be my first time watching Prince of Egypt. At the end, I wrote that a review would follow.
Nearly three months have elapsed without a review.
Since I wish not to be called a dirty, rotten, no-good, filthy liar, I’m finally making good on that promise. So, all that ado aside, and certainly without further ado, here are my thoughts. Continue reading
The Prince of Egypt: A Preview of My First Viewing
OKLAHOMA CITY – Nearly four years ago (March 2013) my buddy Brazle and I embarked on a zany journey through Disney’s catalogue of traditionally-animated movies (I cannot believe it has been that long); I called it the Epic Disney Watchfest. We covered something like thirty-five movies in thirty-seven days, starting with Continue reading
Dr. Strange – Yet Another Review of Yet Another Marvel Movie
OKLAHOMA CITY – If thou art searching for an highly acclaimed motion picture, thou wilt do well in seeking out Dr. Strange. The latest Marvel movie has received high marks indeed, scoring an 8/10 on Imdb.com and a mighty 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Less scintillating but still strong, the film is standing at 72/100 on Metacritic.
In the opinion of this reviewer, such scores are a bit too high. While Dr. Strange is easy on the eyes and largely unobjectionable, in the end it simply is neither great nor highly memorable.
