While it’s easy to detest the modern cult-culture that has arisen around the works of C.S Lewis, McNease’s songs are well written and drenched in the theological writings of Lewis on his album, The Weight of Glory. Each song is named [] The post Heath McNease-The Weight of Glory appeared first on CULTURESHOCK. http://ow.ly/2NPmhU

Lucy (2014) - Luc Besson has made a lot of films as a writer and/or director, but apart from the great Léon and the enjoyable The Fifth Element nothing really stands out.

For  me Phoenix’s “It’s Never Been Like That” album is part of that music selection. It is an album [] The post Phoenix It's Never Been Like That appeared first on CULTURESHOCK. http://ow.ly/2MUzHJ

Chef (2014) - Jon Favreau made some blockbuster movies with Iron Man and Iron Man 2. Elf was a funny movie from his hand. He also acted is several flicks, but to be honest nothing of his work really stood out. Chef is another addition to that average group, but one of the better ones. Simple Food Carl Casper (Favreau) is a top chef, but [] The post Chef (2014) appeared first on CULTURESHOCK. http://ow.ly/2MM4oH
