Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2
If we walk away from 'The Hunger Games' thinking about big, important cultural questions, then we're better for it. mpaa rating:PG-13 (For intense sequences of violence and action, and for some thematic material.)Genre:Drama, Fantasy, TeenTheatre Release:November 20, 2015 by Lionsgate2015 has been a bit of a banner year for films about women in violent situations. Whatever your thoughts on action movie tropes are, the fact that we have tropes at all indicates that historically women in action movies don’t get a lot of nuance.This year, genre conventions have been subtly but effectively challenged by films like Mad Max: Fury Road (check out this fantastic piece by a friend of mine dissecting Furiosa and Co.’s femininity vs. Supergirl’s), Sicario (our review highlights how the film handles women’s disempowerment in war zones), and Ex Machina (the parallel is less stark given that the lead is a female robot, but the film produced a lot of controversy over its proposal that women have to violently remove themselves from objectification).The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part Two joins the lineup in an unexpectedly satisfying way. It conveys the horribly significant consequences of war on individual and social levels in a genre notorious for its heavy-handed disregard for collateral damage. It’s a movie about the effects of war, not war itself, and in particular the effects of war on a young woman.The first shot of the film shows Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) having a neck brace removed and struggling to speak after being attacked by her former lover, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), at the end of Mockingjay - Part One. This shot establishes how director Francis Lawrence approaches all of the violence in the film: frankly, humanly, without spectacle or exploitation.As Katniss recovers, the Districts’ rebellion against the Capitol is in full swing. They’ve taken ground all the way into District 2, the last stronghold of support for the Capitol. President Coin (Julianne ...Continue reading...

Five Tips for Making This Thanksgiving One of the Best Ones Ever
Thanksgiving is one of the great American holidays, a time dedicated to the deliberate expression of gratitude to the Lord for this country and our many blessings.If you're like my wife, Jean, you've been shopping and preparing the last few days. Perhaps you've cleared your house of extra clutter, wiped the fingerprints off the fridge and aired out the stuffy guest room. The serving platters are out of storage and your overnight guests might even be on their way.The post Five Tips for Making This Thanksgiving One of the Best Ones Ever appeared first on Jim Daly.
Commentary: What Do We Make of '90 Minutes in Heaven'?
Near-death experiences make for popular books and movies. But what should Christians do with them?Don Piper’s story, now made visible in the movie 90 Minutes in Heaven (out this weekend), records his experience of “dying” as a result of a head-on car crash and experiencing some moments (90 minutes of them) of glorious encounter with “heaven” where God, a suffusing and overwhelming light, resided in the middle of the heavenly city.In that near death experience (NDE), Piper saw and heard the voice of many of his fellow Christians as they were journeying toward the gate of heaven—but he never entered. A fellow pastor was praying for his recovery at the crash scene, and he found himself singing along with the pastor, back on earth.The slow-developing movie focuses far more on the pain both Piper (Hayden Christensen) experienced and his family, especially his wife (Kate Bosworth), endured as he lay in hospital beds for months—suffocating with a desire to return to heaven and unwilling to communicate either about his NDE or what was happening in his soul. The slowness of the scenes accentuates the slowness of his recovery. But recover he did, to find a purpose in life—to tell people that heaven is real and that prayer really works.Piper’s story is encouraging, and surely in the top two or three of hundreds of NDE stories I have read.I do not disbelieve Don Piper’s story. He seems credible, and his experience is far from unusual. Mally Cox-Chapman, a skilled journalist, read and interviewed and tracked down one story after another. In her book The Case for Heaven: Near-Death Experiences as Evidence of the Afterlife, we read the fairly common pattern of near-death experiences: Feelings of peace and quiet Feeling oneself out of the body Going through a dark tunnelContinue reading...
Review: The Good Dinosaur
Possibly the most generic Pixar movie ever.mpaa rating:PG (For peril, action and thematic elements.)Genre:AnimatedTheatre Release:November 25, 2015 by Walt Disney Studios Motion PicturesParents at the multiplex who are looking for a movie the whole family will like probably can’t do better than The Good Dinosaur—especially given the other films opening on Thanksgiving weekend (The Danish Girl; Creed; Janis: Little Girl Blue; Victor Frankenstein) and those already playing in theaters (The Hunger Games, The Night Before, Love the Coopers, Goosebumps).But they’ll mostly be settling. Compared to other Pixar films, The Good Dinosaur is not particularly clever in its storytelling, nor does it pack as powerful an emotional punch.The “good dinosaur” of the title is Arlo, the youngest of three sibling dinosaurs. From the moment he is hatched, Arlo is a fearful little guy. At first Momma and Poppa (even the names are generic) think his egg is empty. Only after they tip it over and peer inside do they spot the undersized runt of the family, pressing vainly against the bottom of the shell to avoid entering the world.Poppa is confident that Arlo just needs a little more time to “make his mark”—but clearly, he finds his son’s cowardice consternating. In a last effort, Poppa sets up a rope trap to catch a critter. All Arlo needs to do to prove his manhood is kill whatever creature is caught in the trap. That ends up being Spot, a human(ish) boy whom Arlo pities enough that cuts him loose, rather than beating his brains in.Now the thematic stakes are set. Arlo gets separated from his family by a storm. He meets up with Spot and they form a sort of family of their own in an effort to find and return to their real families. The ensuing journey riffs on Monsters, Inc. (big scary monster scared of tiny human child) and Disney’s The Lion King (male child ...Continue reading...
