Writing Right Now

Academy Award Nominations

CODA: WINNER 

Best Adapted Screenplay/Best Supporting Actor/Best Picture

It has one of the most interesting concepts of all the nomineed movies. . Now that it it has one the grand prize I will have to to sign up for Apple to watch it

Belfast: It’s about Ireland so I want to watch it with Kristin at some point. I can rent it. It did win Best Original Screenplay
Drive My Car: It looks rather boring. But I signed up for HBO Max so I could watch King Richard. So I might watch this. And it’s 3 hours long!!!
It did win Best International Feature Film
Licorice Pizza: Look Interesting. I could Rent it. The movie was all right. ZERO Awards

Don’t Look Up: Not a bad movie, but not really best picture material The movie was all right. ZERO Awards
Dune: Visually stunning. Better then the version I hated with Sting. Was tired while watching it and had to keep taking naps. Not enough time with the Sandworms. It was the movie that one most of the awards, winning for Best SoundBest Original ScoreBest Film EditingBest Production DesignBest Visual Effects, and Best Cinematography. 

King Richard: I liked this movie in the first five minutes that I saw it. It really is good. It’s also a Sports movie  so it ends the way most sports movies do. That consists of a underdog winning at great odds or losing with dignity. Will Smith really looks like the real guy he plays.  Deacon Steve gave it a good review. Will Smith won Best Actor. During the ceremony Chris Rock said something that made Will Smith get up and deck him. He apologized. ‘

“I want to apologize to the Academy, I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees. This is a beautiful moment, and I am not crying for winning an award. It’s not about winning an award for me,” Smith said following a standing ovation. “Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father, just like Richard Williams … but love will make you do crazy things. Will Smith Tearfully Apologizes for Outburst While Accepting Best Actor Oscar: ‘Love Will Make You Do Crazy Things’ (msn.com)

The Power of the Dog: I hated this movie and wondered what the goodness gracious it was doing as a best pic nominee. It was forgettable and annoying. That is until the last 5 minutes of the movie.  My opinion changed in the last five minutes. A revelation and a plot twist gave new insight into whole movie. It went from being a boring western to a deep psychological drama. It did win Best Director
Nightmare Alley:  The noir look was good on this film. Not sure I got the whole point of the movie. The ending was pretty good.
The movie was all right. ZERO Awards.

West Side Story:
A remake that keeps what was good about the original while adding something new and original to it. It also has more profanity the the original and the two lead characters actually sleep with one another. The first one seemed more like a musical thou. This one seems like a dramatic movie with well choregraphed musical numbers. I don’t know if that makes any sense. It did win Best Supporting Actress

Act of Charity

This group always needs help, so if you read this way after the date it was published. You can still give to this charity.

The flu outbreak at Mercy for Life (and in Kampala in general) has walloped their finances. Dozens sick at once, with children in the gravest danger. Medical costs through the roof, and they can’t even afford Gatorade to keep kids hydrated. Please pray for them and give right now. This can’t wait. https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/MercyForLifeCorp

(The) Angelus

My wife wrote an incomplete time travel trilogy called The Angelus Dimension, that needs a rewrite. I keep thinking that I’ll work on it someday.

Emily, praying for peace ���@EmilyKath319: I sometimes think about if it would be a witness if more people prayed the noon Angelus (complete with genuflection if able) more often, just wherever they are. Much in the same way Muslims give a testament of their faith with their salah.

In the Angelus you are remembering and praying about the Ascension of Mary. I mean the Annunciation of Mary. These words are similar enough to mess up. Pope Francis consecrated Russia and the Ukraine to Mary’s Immaculate Heart Annunciationion Day 2022. And this also happen.

Sachin Jose@Sachinettiyil: In the Lord of the Rings, it was on March 25 that Frodo casts the ring of power into the Cracks of Doom ending the tyranny of Sauron. Why March 25? Because in the Middle Ages March 25 was Ladyday–the Solemnity of the Annunciation and the beginning of the world’s redemption.

Calmness

There is a calmness, a serenity, and a confidence that come from genuinely trusting God. I mean the kind of deep trust that spiritual writers describe as Self-Abandonment to Divine Providence, or Trustful Surrender to Divine Providence, or the like. The Lenten liturgy is filled with inspired imagery that stirs us up to this confidence and deep trust.

What I am recommending here is not something at all novel, but rather the internalization of Biblical and liturgical texts, the bread and butter of our faith. The purpose is not to make us “feel nice,” but to encourage us in the practice of prayer, penance, and Christian virtue, which is itself a tremendous undertaking that is both arduous and difficult — but which should be approached with that peace that Jesus said He came to give us.

Otherwise, we will render the difficult impossible and crack a lot of high notes in the process.

Catholic Crossover Event

Friends, recently I had the privilege of speaking with Fr. Mike Schmitz, the host of the popular podcast “The Bible in a Year” and a contributor at @Ascension Presents. We cover a variety of topics in our conversation, including our vocation stories, our early starts to our YouTube content, our favorite movies, arguing on social media, and much more. We share what inspired us to take creative new approaches to the Bible, and how the success of these projects reveals a hunger for a deeper understanding of Scripture. -Bishop Robert Barron

Comic Book Movies Are For Kids

Here’s a bit of trivia you might not know: Batman was originally a character from comic books, and comic books have traditionally been aimed at—you might want to sit down for this—children. You know, those little people you’d have three of by now if you were born in any era besides this one? They’d read them after school while their parents were busy doing grown-up stuff, like listening to jazz or drinking that brown juice that makes Dad happy and then sleepy.

And don’t give me any of this nonsense about how the latest Batman movies are better than the ’90s ones. Sure, Arnold Schwarzenegger made a ton of silly ice puns in Batman & Robin. Know who found them delightful? Me! Because I’m a human being who has yet to learn long division and still kind of believes in Santa Claus.

I Am Eight Years Old and Would Like a Batman Movie Aimed at Me, Please – McSweeney’s Internet Tendency (mcsweeneys.net)

fathermikeschmitz@frmikeschmitz: That was the best Batman on the big screen ever. (Not for kids, FYI.) But still, the BEST EVER.
Kyle Thompson@KyleOKC: *Ahem*… The Dark Knight still exists.
fathermikeschmitz@frmikeschmitz: It is merely my opinion (which matters very little), but the Dark Knight trilogy isn’t Batman canon. In it, “Batman” is no more than a rich person who has not dedicated his entire life to honing his skills to stop crime. He is merely Nolan’s hollow version.

Judge Not

Even in His pain on the Cross, the Lord Jesus did not condemn sinners but offered up pardon for their sins to His Father, saying: ‘They know not what they do!’ (Luke 23:34) Let us not judge anyone so that we will not be judged. For no one is certain that, before his death, he will not commit the same sin by which he condemns his brother. St. Anastasius of Sinai teaches: “Even if you see someone sinning, do not judge him, for you do not know what the end of his life will be like. The thief who was crucified with Christ was a murderer, while Judas was an apostle of Jesus, but the thief entered into the Kingdom, and the apostle went to perdition. Even if you see someone sinning, bear in mind that you do not know his good works. For many have sinned openly and repented in secret; we see their sins, but we do not know their repentance. Therefore, brethren, let us not judge anyone so that we will not be judged.” John Michael Talbot on Facebook March 23,2022

When we get judged or Criticised how should we act. You may have noticed that Fr. Mike pops up alot in this post. He pops up in many of my posts cause he always has something worth listening to.
