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 ...

Alternative Parables: #2 - Livid

28/10/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Even as the news was still sinking in he could feel his anger fizzing its way up through his body. This was typical of his sister. Say one thing, do another. Don’t bother to think about anyone else. If something’s hard, just quit it, preferably as soon as possible. More ...

Good News!

Last week was a week of good news with the sucessful rescue of 33 men from a mine in Chile. It was a nail biting time, but all the men arrived safely on the surface and the whole world seemed to join in with the celebrations of the Chilean people. But why don't we here more good news? 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 ...

Signs and Wonders

I saw the most amazing rainbow as I drove down the motorway last Saturday. My second thought (the first one was keep your eyes on the road dummy!) was: my pre industrial ancestors would have said, that something in the sky that was so unusual, was a sign from God. Was it? More ...

Carrying on in this grand tradition, it appears that next year will see the release of $30 million Bollywood Jesus film. More ...

Alternative Parables: #1 - The Excuse

22/08/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

His legs were gone, his lungs burned, but Bernbaum somehow summoned the energy to reached out for the top of the chain link fence. But it was too late. He felt his pursuer grab him by his leg and yank him down onto the floor. 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 ...

Film Review: Shrek Forever After

01/07/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Putting Shrek and Jesus in the same article gets some people nervous. After all, Jesus' story is hardly fairy tale and he certainly wasn't an ogre. But there are one or two moments in this latest instalment of the Shrek series that reminded me of the life of Jesus. The latest film actually starts somewhere in the middle of the original film and in many ways Shrek Forever After is an attempt to put aside two forgettable sequels and get back to the heart of what made the first film work so well.
