For Aleteia this week, I reviewed Guardians of the Galaxy. You’ve probably already heard a lot of good things about it. They’re all true, it’s a blast. And let me be among the first to say, if Disney doesn’t release a dancing Groot action figure, they are going to be a lot of disappointed people come Christmastime.
On a more serious note, the Happy Catholic had a chance to take in Calvary, the recent indie film about an innocent priest who receives a death threat during confession from an abuse victim. Like Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s also getting rave reviews, but obviously not for the same reasons.
As for films unlikely to get a good review, Fr. V at Adam’s Ale has seen Sharknado Two; the Second One and wonders just who is going to help clean up the mess it left behind.
On the more philosophical side, The Curt Jester asks us to consider the spiritual implications of Star Trek’s transporter technology.
As long as we’re asking questions, Daniel McInery has 3 of them for director/actor Zach Braff.
And, finally, a little something for animation fans. Aspie Catholic takes a look at the stop-motion feature Mary & Max, while Joe Wetterling at the Barptized imagination ponders the short lived Green Lantern: The Animated Series.
Hope that gives you some fun stuff to read. See you next time.
