"Chocolat" (2000)
“Chocolat” is not a perfect movie, but it is the kind of experience I look for in film. It tackles a sticky issue and it fights for its position without completely demonizing other perspectives. And, in this case, it makes a good point. The village in thi...

Undigested Praise and Worship Ramblings
It finally happened. I have heard a “praise and worship song” that venerates praise and worship. It was bound to happen because P&W isn’t anything new. It is another in a long line of trends that are neither good nor bad, but have a potential to be eithe...

"Ferris Beuller's Day Off" (1986)
“Bueller? Bueller?” One of the most representative movies of my generation, Ferris Bueller is the epitome of Generation X. He is a slacker, he is unmotivated, rebellious and disrespectful of authority. Or is he? If he is such a bad representative, why d...

Quantum Leap Rewatch (Episodes 61-65)
Episodes 55-60 -- Episodes 66-72 The more I delve into this series, the more I realize that it is just an less religious and (slightly) less preachy successor to “Highway to Heaven.” That is a step down from where my memory had this series. Episode 61: “Dr...

Hope: Our Testimony in the World 3 (John 15:18-27)
The sin of rebellion, rejecting God. vv22-25 Here Jesus is not saying that people didn’t have sin before He came, nor that He caused sin. What HE is saying is that the rejection of Jesus is their sin. In ways, it is the ultimate sin. Matthew 12 and Mark ...

Cain and Abel: The Growth of Religion and Sin Following the Fall (Genesis 4:1-16)
This story raises a whole slew of questions for which we have no answer. Once again, it is a case of a story told for a singular purpose, unconcerned with giving us all the details. And yet, the little hints of detail it teases us with support the idea th...

Genesis 5: From Adam to Noah
Following the Prologue (Genesis 1:1-2:3), and the first major section (Genesis 2:4-4:26) we get the first genealogical interlude in Genesis 5:1-6:8. All five of the major sections of Genesis will be divided by such interludes. For the most part, they are m...

Hope: Our Testimony in the World 4 (John 15:18-27)
Our response, a witness. vv26,27 Here we have the third (of 5) teachings about the Holy Spirit. He is to be Helper, Interpreter, Witness, Prosecutor, and Revealer. Here we hear how He is a witness to Jesus. We are with Him in this task. This explains, ...

Man's Sin and Man's Religion Develop and Expand through the Generations (Genesis 4:17-26)
This first section from 2:4-4:26 concludes with an account of seven generations from Adam. Over the course of these generations, we see sin develop and expand alongside human culture. The city is invented. Nomadic animal husbandry and metallurgy are deve...

"Contempt" (1963)
So this is the best work of art produced in post-war Europe? Sight and Sound in 1997 thought so. I could think of a few alternate suggestions. Not that this film doesn’t try to say something or that it does it in a poor way. But it is a bit stilted and ...

"Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969)
Revisiting this film recently with my son, I was reminded of a couple things. First, Paul Newman and Robert Redford are two of the most likeable screen presences of all time. Second, this film leaves one as empty as the other western of its time, “The Wil...

Star Trek Enterprise (Season 1c)
Season 1b -- Season 1d Enterprise remains uneven. However, it does still try to present moral and cultural observations and not mere stories. What emerges, though, is a lot less certainty regarding the Humanistic ideals that Roddenberry never allowed to b...
