The Fall of the House of Usher (1928) Whoa. Did this surreal dreamlike version of the Poe tale scare David Lynch's mother while she was pregnant or what?. TIL: DalĂ­ considered surrealism the perfect genre for representing Catholicism's supernatural realities in his paintings.

Tinseltown Testaments: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."

Dad Rock Diary: R.E.M. - Murmur (1983) Confession: Stipe's voice has always kind of grated on me. Still, this debut full of college classroom punk is required listening for any alt-rock fan. Laudable Lyrics: If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord to hesitate.

And finally, three movies well worth... reading? Well, the Vatican certainly thinks so. My latest for Aleteia.
