Jake Sully: All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.

Avatar, not to be confused with Avatar: The Last Air Bender(The best animated series ever made), is one of if not my favorite movie of 2009. That’s saying a lot consider there were a bunch of great movies that year, like; Up, Sherlock Holmes, and Zombieland just to name a few. Apparently I wasn’t the only one that liked it, because it ended up grossing 2.8 billion worldwide, which dwarfed its whopping $280 Million production budget. However, the amount of money a movie makes certainly doesn’t correlate with how good it actually is. For the many that loved it, there was a comparable number who didn’t and were very vocal about it. Despite its polarizing effect, everyone recognized that it was one of the most breathtaking films ever made, which resulted in it winning 3 Oscars. Regardless of whether or not you liked it, I think it has a number of good messages, which is why I decided to review it. Continue Reading

In the circles I run with at my church, I’m considered the young pup, i.e. young in faith and age, at least compared to my brothers and sisters. As a matter of fact, the youngest couple at our fellowship group is 60. I greatly appreciate that as they have much spiritual wisdom to impart, especially as it relates to walking with the Lord on a daily basis. You’ll never hear a more fervent and sincere prayer than the one that flows from the lips of my mentor as he prays.

“Los Angeles: once upon a time.” From the moment it begins, The Fall sets the stage for a fairytale; we expect beauty, magic, and wonder—and The Fall delivers. What begins as an unlikely friendship between an injured five-year-old girl and a paraplegic young Hollywood stunt man, transforms into an epic tale of love and loss, as well as life and death. Filmed over a period of four years in eighteen different countries, rich with metaphor and sparkling with vivid imagery, The Fall is not only visually stunning, but also intensely emotional.

I finally got the chance to sit down and watch House of Cards. This is a show that has been nominated 97 times for various awards with 15 wins including Golden Globes for Best Actor and Actress for Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright as a ruthless, political power-couple. Fans on Twitter and Facebook have created paintings, digital art, and fanfiction. Even President Obama watches the show. Truly House of Cards has left an influential mark on the culture. But what is this show that has so many watching and talking? Continue Reading

Tragic moments often begin to define a person’s life for better or worse. Whether we learn something about ourselves, become jaded, or lose hope all together. For Peggy, a family tragedy tosses her life expectations out the window, and sends her sense of direction into a tailspin. (Mild spoilers ahead)

I saw a Thursday showing of Ant-Man.
I did not go into the theater expecting a lot; but rather, always excited to see a superhero movie. (I don’t want the debate of hero or not since he doesn’t have special powers, but rather a special suit.) The biggest thing I had to brace myself for was Paul Rudd: Superhero.
