85% It (2017) They are awesome actors who are afraid and heroic fearful and fearless at the same time, eventually willing to lay down their lives for one another to make up for the evil done by the clown and that is perpetrated by the adults and bullies in their lives‐ National Catholic Reporter

43% Robin Hood (2010) The irony here is between the powerful merge of cinematic storytelling, history, and the dominant role of the market, because if Sir Ridley Scott's epic doesn't make a profit, there won't be a sequel, and more's the pity.‐ National Catholic Reporter

89% Walking The Camino: Six Ways To Santiago (2014) Walking the Camino makes me wish I could walk it today. It could be a promotional film for the Camino but I think it works even for people who are unable to make that 500-mile pilgrimage because we are all on a journey, we are never finished.‐ National Catholic Reporter

1% Left Behind (2014) This new film is a watered-down and somewhat changed version of the earlier movie with a bigger budget and not much else. There is barely enough undercooked scriptural theology to critique in the vacuous writing and painful acting.‐ National Catholic Reporter

29% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) I choose to think of Exodus: Gods and Kings as Ridley Scott's personal vision of God and his wrangling through his art with the consequences of what saying "I believe" means.‐ National Catholic Reporter

77% Fury (2014) But right now, today, Fury adds to our culture of violence without adding much light to anything. We already know that war is hell.‐ National Catholic Reporter
