Film Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

16/07/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Since the relaunch of the rejesus blog at the start of the year I've been reviewing new movies that relate to Jesus in some way. Whilst it's not always easy to find films that fit into that category, Harry Potter should have been straight forward. After all it's humble hero is an exceptional miracle worker, who is born to be the chosen one. The problem... was me. More ...

Film Review: Year One

27/06/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

With his beard and his stout figure Jack Black has often seemed a littel prehistoric compared to his liposuctionned, bodywaxed, Hollywood cohorts. So it was perhaps only a matter of time until someone offered him a role playing a caveman. Black plays the role of Zed alongside Michael Cerra's Oh in Year One, the latest film from producer Judd Apatow (Superbad, Knocked Up, Anchorman) and writer / director Harold Ramis (Analyze This, Groundhog Day).

Jeansus Christ

When an 87 year-old lady Winifred Gregory died last year she left her parish church a substantial sum of money. After much deliberation Father David Buckley and his Uckfield congregation decided to commission a new, modern statue to hang on the church's tower. The winner was a seven foot bronze statue, sculpted by Marcus Cornish, which shows Jesus in modern attire. "Jesus in Jeans", as the statue has quickly become known, not only depicts Christ in Jeans and a T-shirt, but also shows him with short hair and a neatly trimmed beard. More ...

Film Review: Angels and Demons

15/05/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Having banished his sacrilegious haircut and dumped Jesus' great great great granddaughter, Tom Hanks returns to our screens as academic turned action figure Robert Langdon. Dan Brown wrote "The Da Vinci Code" after he had already scored a hit with "Angels and Demons", but Sony and director Ron Howard presumably thought that the latter story would make the more popular film. Having established The Da Vinci Code as a hit movie, Howard and co. have taken note of the audience for Brown's religious thrillers and moved swiftly onto Angels and Demons. More ...

Prophesy That

Film Review: Knowing
Of all the titles that Jesus was known by during his time on earth, "prophet" was perhaps more widely used than anything else. The crowds, the woman at the well, the Pharisees, the disciples and even Jesus himself all used the term. Yet it's one of the descriptions that we're perhaps least comfortable with today. It’s fine for Jesus to be a "good teacher" or even a messiah, but it's usually only the followers of Islam who will call him a prophet. More ...

Crowds gather to be ignored by Jesus

Most of the time I can look at art without asking the question, 'what does this mean?'. But many images of Christ can be quite compelling. Two days ago this image appeared on the side of a video rental shop in New Bedford in the US. What does it mean to you? More ...

Film Review: Gran Torino

27/02/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Clint Eastwood has said that Gran Torino will be his last performance as an actor. If so then it’s a fitting place to end. Having spent much of his younger career playing characters whose coolness was demonstrated by making correct guesses at critical moments, his latter years have seen him evolve into a worldly-wise, if prickly, father figure. Gran Torino sees this development arrive at a fitting conclusion. More ...

Are Jesus and Dracula the same person? The seven key clues….

02/02/09 | Posted by feihero | Permalink | (12) Comments

Once bitten forever smitten. Or so it would seem. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a 14 year-old fan of Twilight, a Victorian reader of Bram Stoker, or a medieval French clegyman writing a report of unsettling happenings in your parish. Once you’ve glimpsed the pale and interesting face of vampirism, you fall under its spell. There can have been few things more resilient, more contagious, or more epidemic in the human imagination, you might think, than the idea of vampires. More ...
