four new film reviews

Here are 4 of my recent film reviews. I write these for a monthly Denominational magazine, who kindly allow me to place them on the web once they have gone to print. I’ve been a bit slack on the blog. My apologies. Feel free to review:

my May review, in which I ponder make believe, of The Da Vinci Code is here. (I also have written on the Da Vinci Code here; here and here;

my June review, in which I am disturbed by the place of domestic violence in comedy, in Siones Wedding is here;

my July review, in which I recommend avoiding Praire Home Companion, unless you are bored in Idaho or want to help a dying church reflect on their future in a changing world, is here;

my August review of Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Mans Chest is here. I conclude: Considering the trajectory of character and narrative in Dead Mans Chest offers an “All aboard” to Christian film reviewers wanting to probe beyond a puritanical fascination with the presence, or absence, of bad language and female breasts.

My other film reviews include; River Queen here; Brokeback Mountain here; Narnia here; Serenity here; The World’s Fastest Indian here; Sedition, a New Zealand film about the fate of conscientious objectors in World War 2, here; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, here

Currently I am reviewing The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.

  1. A coupla months ago, I watched a kiwi-made film called “50 Ways of Saying Fabulous”. Having lived in NZ previously, it was nothing but lovely getting to see the gorgeous NZ scenery again. I felt sad yet happy at the same time, heart almost bursting. The film had a good plot too.

    If you ever get to see it, I hope you can write a quick review of that film too, would love to hear your thoughts 🙂
