Review Addendum: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, pt 2 – book comparison

No, I haven’t read the entire series in the last 12 hours. I have, however, read an excellent article that explains how much of my disappointment in the finale of the movie is taken care of nicely in the book. The article describes how Christian themes wound into the book are removed from the movie… Read More »

Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2 (spoilers)

I guess it’s about time I started reading the books. I have now seen all the movies. I just returned from the final entry. The final story in a cohesive series bears a huge burden. It must tie together the threads of not only its own story, but of the entire series in a satisfying… Read More »

2011 Movies to Drool Over

I’m a bit behind in putting up my movie list for this year. Last year’s list was full of promise, but I only got to see 4 of the 21 listed films in the theater. I’ve since brought the total up to 11 with the help of DVDs. I hope to catch the 12th (Voyage… Read More »

On the heels of Avatar, though, it seems like every big movie is being filmed in 3-D. While I’m okay with that, it means two things: feeling a little weird wearing those glasses, and… Read More »

Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I haven’t read the books. In general I’ve tried to avoid reviews and other spoilers for the film (though I did get spoiled for the ultra-major event, annoyingly). I’ve heard a lot of people say this was the best Potter film yet. They lauded the admirable job condensing the plot from the book into a… Read More »

C.S. Lewis on living by hope

Last week I started doing something I hardly ever do – I started reading a non-fiction book. Even more amazingly, it’s an auto-biography. That’s a genre I almost never delve into. In fact, I can’t even remember the last non-fiction book I read cover to cover. It’s not even a recent book. I ran across… Read More »
