Another Polite Bribe

I had the chance to finish watching the documentary A Polite Bribe, which I blogged about briefly on a previous occasion, and so now want to say more about it. I honestly cannot think of another single documentary film about the Bible which has such a wide array of the very best and best-known scholars [Read More...]

A Polite Bribe

I was asked to review the forthcoming documentary movie, A Polite Bribe, about the apostle Paul’s “offering” to the Jerusalem church from the Gentile churches he established. Unfortunately, my access to the online preview expired before I could finish watching. But from what I saw, I can say it is worth watching and offers interesting perspectives [Read More...]

Jerusalem in the First Century

This digital recreation of first century Jerusalem was shared by the Huffington Post together with a large number of real photos from modern Israel, all of which I understand are from the long-awaited IMAX movie about Jerusalem.

Rebuttals to Ray Comfort

Hemant Mehta recently shared this video response to Ray Comfort’s deceitful movie about evolution. It makes some excellent points, including highlighting the irony of Comfort saying “Just look at this banana! Proof of God!” and yet complaining, when scientists have so much evidence for evolution they can point to, “Sorry, that’s not good enough!” Mehta [Read More...]

I’ll get the ball [Read More...]

Michael Zimmerman introduced me to the word mumpsimus when he used it in his recent Huffington Post piece to describe Ray Comfort. Michael refers to Anu Garg, who defines the word as “a view stubbornly held in spite of clear evidence that it's wrong; and a person who holds such a view.” Ray Comfort is [Read More...]

Doctor Who Star Wars Mash-Up

Like many mash-ups, this Doctor Who Episode II: Attack of the Sontarans trailer makes little sense. But like many mash-ups, it is still entertaining, and impressive in what it shows about how it is possible to take people from one movie or TV show and weave them effectively into another. [Read more...]

Les Misérables

Tonight I finally watched the movie version of the musical Les Misérables. It was wonderful. I had heard great things about Anne Hathaway’s performance and having gone in with high expectations, I was not disappointed. I had also heard terrible things about Russell Crowe’s singing, and while having gone in expecting it to be awful, I [Read More...]
