Killing Jesus -- first look
I've been meaning to blog about this for a while, but there's another Jesus film on the way this spring -- Killing Jesus.  It's adapted from Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s book of the same name and airs on National Geographic.  Here's a "first look": Lik...

For a first look, all I needed to see was Kelsey Grammer as a blow-dried version of King Herod. Tells me almost everything I need to know ;-)

Spelling mistake in Last Temptation of Christ
The Last Temptation of Christ begins with a quotation from Nikos Kazantzakis, but there is a spelling mistake -- it's the wrong "principle".  It should, of course, be "principal":

What have the Romans done for us? - Life of Brian and Jesus of Nazareth

I'd forgotten that scene for Life of Brian. I need to watch it again.

First class service. Creative Painting provide excellent value and they are efficient and responsive and professional. George is the friendly face of the company and goes out of his way to be helpful. We had our exterior washed, painted, with wood replaced and problems solved. Looks great. All round excellent job.

We have had many good experiences here -- great service, beautifully presented sashimi. But today the white tuna was definitely off, and the red tuna was not fresh. We pointed it out in a friendly way but didn't get much feedback or explanation. We won't be returning after this. Disappointing because we had enjoyed several previous visits.
