I’m sure Howard Stern’s people are speed-dialing

So there’s this Christian pop singer cutie who’s just come back from a seven-year hiatus to reveal she’s gay. Unlike Ted Haggard, she’s totally cool with her gayosity, so all props to her! But I wonder if the title of her new album Letting Go really means what she wants it to mean. Sweetheart, we’re …

Isn’t all religious belief a form of acting?

For reasons I can’t quite fathom, but which probably have to do with the fact that I was at one point listed (I didn’t bother renewing when production in Texas essentially dried up) in the Texas Film Commission Production Directory, I’ve been added to the email list of Brad Wilson Acting. This means that I …

Year One: Not Quite What I Expected

Alert: Spoilers are included in this article. I have been working at my job pretty close to nonstop for several weeks and needed a break and some levity.

A bit of artistic justice

Lurking on some of my usual movie sites today, I noticed a fun fact that has gone unnoticed by the godless blogosphere. I still haven’t seen Bill Maher’s Religulous; I understand the ACA had a little group movie night when it opened here, which I missed due to being out of town. No one saw …

Prince Caspian is Anvilicious

Anvilicious, adj:In media, the state of conveying a particular message so unsubtly that they may as well etch it onto an anvil and drop it on your head. Okay, so I’m late in seeing this movie. Ginny and I don’t get out enough. I always liked the Narnia books, even after I knew that Aslan …

M. Night’s new movie is about ID?

That’s the general impression that this reviewer got, although PZ Myers doesn’t precisely agree. It’s a sad thing about M. Night Shyamalan. I really, really enjoyed both 6th Sense and Unbreakable. Then Signs came out, and Jeff Dee — whose tastes I mostly respect a lot — told me he hated it. He was disgusted …

Catholics so scared of Golden Compass, they’re suppressing their own praise

According to IMDb today: Without explanation, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has retracted on its website a positive review of The Golden Compass that appeared in Catholic newspapers last week. The review had appeared to counterbalance claims by the Catholic League, the nation’s largest Catholic lay group, that it served as an introduction to …

Reviewing The Golden Compass

I’ll start here by noting that this review, while it avoids outright spoilers for either book or movie, has some things in it that will mean more if you’ve read the book rather than not. Since not reading the book would make you a silly person, go correct that lapse in your cultural education at …
