TV Review: Holy Flying Circus

21/10/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

There have been many controversial films, books and television programmes over the years, but there's something completely different about Monty Python's Life of Brian: people actually like it. Many defend the right of Martin Scorsese to have made Last Temptation of Christ, or Salman Rushdie to have written the Satanic Verses, but few people hold the strength of feeling for them as they do for the anarchic tale of a man who was mistaken for the Messiah.

Gaga for Jesus

07/05/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

Always keen to court controversy Lady Gaga's latest music video, has yet again won her huge amounts of free publicity by portraying her as trapped in the middle of a love triangle between Judas and Jesus. Gaga's video, which is for her latest single "Judas", was released last night racking up over 3 million votes in 24 hours. More ...

TV Review: The Story of Jesus

25/04/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (3) Comments

Easter is always the time of year when the TV channels figure they should stick out a bit of religious programming and this year proved no exception. There was Anne Widdecombe pondering the future of Christinanity, Rowan Williams wondering about the point of forgiveness, an ITV documentary on the flight of faith and the movies The Prince of Egypt and Barabbas on the BBC and Channel 5 . But arguably the biggest piece of religious programming this year was BBC1's two-part documentary The Story of Jesus. More ...

TV Review: BBC1’s The Nativity

20/12/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (40) Comments

For many of us our first, and possibly only, acting role was in a nativity play. So it’s strange that so few professional actors get the chance to return to their humble beginnings. The 2006 film The Nativity Story was the first time that an English version of the story had hit the silver screen since 1914. Television has tried a few new approaches to the story, such as 2007’s Liverpool Nativity, but a decent, historical attempt at telling the Christmas Story is long overdue. More ...

Film Review: The Chronicles of Narnia - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

10/12/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

With a change of director and a change of studio, the latest instalment in the Chronicles of Narnia series has finally arrived in cinemas after a break of two and a half years. As with the book, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader follows the adventures of the younger two Pevensie children, Lucy and Edmund, and their brattish cousin Eustace, as they arrive back in Narnia via a painting of a Narnian ship. There they rejoin King Caspian and the valiant talking mouse Reepicheep who are on a quest to find seven lost Narnian Lords. More ...

The Nativity Coming to the BBC

28/11/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (5) Comments

Having enjoyed success with The Passion two and a half years ago, the BBC have decided to follow it up by filming a new version of the birth of Jesus. The Nativity is due to air over four nights in the run up to this Christmas with each episode lasting half an hour. More ...

Film Review: The Social Network

16/10/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

It’s a sign of the explosive growth of Facebook that less than three years after I first heard about it, I’m sitting in a cinema watching a major movie about its creation.
The Social Network is a semi-fictional telling of how Mark Zuckerberg (in a great performance by Jesse Eisenberg) and his friends invented the world’s most popular website. More ...

Bollywood Jesus

04/09/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

There have been many films about Jesus over the years from some of the very earliest silent films, to the singing and dancing Christs of Godspell and Jesus Christ, Superstar. Carrying on in this grand tradition, it appears that next year will see the release of $30 million Bollywood Jesus film. More ...

TV Review: Rev.

28/07/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

The BBC's latest sit-com, Rev., has been pulling in praise from religious and non-religious critics alike. With only one episode to go, now seemed like a good time to review the series as a whole before it disappears for the summer*. More ...

Film Review: Inception

17/07/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

British director Christopher Nolan seems to have combined the best of his talents for making big blockbusters (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) and quirky, thought provoking films (Memento) in making his latest film Inception. It’s the cleverest summer movie for quite some time: a fast paced thriller that leaves its audience trying to work everything out long after the credits have rolled. More ...
