Film Review: Year One

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).

Film Review: Angels and Demons

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.

Film Review: Wolverine

Wolverine was always the most interesting and engaging character in the highly successful X-men trilogy. Somehow Hugh Jackman managed to offset Logan's physical toughness with suggestions of a hurtful past and a deep disappointment of the world around him. It's not a huge surprise, then, that his is the first character to be given a prequel film of his own as part of the new X-men Origins series.

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.

Film Review: Gran Torino

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.

Who Would Jesus Assasinate?

Film Review: Valkyrie
Would Jesus have approved of a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler? German Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg certainly thought so, even risking his life in an attempt to kill the Nazis' infamous leader.

Jack Black as Jesus

School of Rock star Jack Black has appeared playing Jesus in an internet film. Prop 8 - The Musical was written by Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) as a protest against a new piece of Californian legislation limiting gay rights. Black appears to a bunch of evangelical Christians (played by John C. Reilly and West Wing's Allison Janney) and points out that they seem to pick and choose which parts of the Bible they follow. Jesus goes on to suggest that they should pick the bits that talk about love and not those that are about hate.The film gained an incredible 1.2 million hits in its first day, and reached the 2.5 million mark within just 5 days.

The Christmas Story in Under 30 Seconds

A competition has been launched challenging the public to tell the story of Jesus’ birth in just thirty seconds. It’s the latest campaign from the Churches Advertising Network whose previous Christmas campaigns included putting a baby’s head on Che Guvera’s body and describing the Virgin Mary as having a "bad hair day".

Film Review: Son of Man

Mark Dornford-May's Son of Man sets the Jesus story in the context of a modern, African township. Were Jesus to come to earth today, it's not hard to imagine that this is the kind of place we'd find him, criticising the politics and corruption that leaves millions living in shacks. Here Pilate's troops pose as agents of peace from a neighbouring country. He maintains his power by using local gangland leaders Caiaphas and Annas to keep control of their people. This Jesus, played by Andile Kosi, is almost the polar opposite of the image of Jesus most of us grew up with. Rather than blond hair and a white bathrobe he's a shaven headed black-African dressed in jeans and a checked shirt. Yet it is easy to relate to him in the role, because Kosi effortlessly blends strength, compassion, and an easy going nature, with a compelling and passionate personality.
