Jerusalem: The IMAX Movie

I have been excited about the IMAX movie Jerusalem since the first time I saw the trailer. The aerial perspectives are breathtaking, and will amaze even those who have been to the places in it. Last night, I had the opportunity to see an advance screening of the complete movie at the IMAX theater at the [Read More...]

Saturday at #GenCon

I spent today at GenCon, and thought I’d share some thoughts and photos. The first thing I went to was a seminar on “Playful Learning in Role Play” led by David Simkins, a professor in the School of Interactive Games and Media at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The session had elements that were inspiring and [Read More...]

Inspired by the Flood Story

It is not the first adaptation of the flood story to take creative license. That is, in actual fact, what the Bible’s flood story did with earlier versions. [Read More...]

Noah’s Flood Website

I just learned of a new website, Noah’s Flood, created to look at stories of natural cataclysms from long before the Bible up through the new Noah movie. I have only taken a quick look, but it looks interesting and worth sharing. [Read more...]

RoboChrist

There was an interesting article recently about the movie RoboCop, suggesting that director Paul Verhoeven had preemptively connected the main character in the movie with Christ-figure typologies of the superficial sort that some would have inevitably come up with afterwards anyway.
