    “The Reformed Pastor” is an enlightening read by a pastor from a few hundred years ago. While Reverand Baxter has been gone for many years, his book is as relevant today as it was back then. What I liked about the title:

    – Covers many relevant topics for the pastor.
    – Profound and yet relatively easy to read.
    – Full of excellent spiritual…[Read more]

    “God Is My Hiding Place” is a great devotion and compilation of Corrie Ten Boom’s life and writings in a 40-day devotion. After reading enough of this title, here is what I like:

    – Very readable and easy to understand.

    – Honest portrayal of her tough time in a Nazi prison camp during World War 2.

    – Description of the many ways God worked in and…[Read more]

    “You Are Not Your Own” by Alan Noble is a great read from a Christian perspective on living in today’s increasingly impersonal world. Just over 200 pages, the author covers many relevant topics on the subject, including:

    – Being careful about letting community define what defines meaning for each person (not talking about moral relativism, but…[Read more]

    • Very artistic trailer …. dark.
      Ok….I will have to add this to my list. I think I remember seeing a preview for this.
      I like Dev Patel….he is such a great actor.

      You are right about all of the King Arthur movies. I think my favorite is “Excalibur”

    For Monica.

    “The Vast of Night” is a film directed, co-produced, and written by Andrew Patterson. The film premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival in January 2019 and was later released in the U.S in May […]

    • NEVER heard of this but I will watch it.
      We have every pay channel on our televisions here so I am sure I can find it somewhere.

      I love movies but never was one for “writing” reviews. I have always felt….if the Movie Trailer doesn’t hook you….my words DEFINITELY will not hook you. So I alway opted for just posting a trailer.
      BUT with your gift for writing Jules you do such an excellent job at reviewing.

      Hi Monica.

      Thanks for the compliment. . .and the plug!

      During the last year and a half there have been a lot of films that have come in under the radar – so to speak, because of the pandemic. Many have gone straight to stream while others – such as the new Bond film, have been held back until cinemas open again.

      There are gems a-plenty just waiting to be discovered. I myself had never heard of “The Vast of Night” until I saw the thumbnail on Prime Video. I clicked on it and began watching what is now my favourite film of the year. Another gem I came across was “I Think We’re Alone Now” – an independant film that stands above all others for its quality of story.

      Of course. . .there is the caveat that what I think is good, others might disagree with, but I always trust in the fact that people recognise quality when they see it. And the above mentioned films ooze quality with ease.

  • I don’t normally devote my blogs to film reviews as such, but I just watched what I can simply describe as one of the most disturbingly hypnotic movies I have seen in a while. Strictly speaking this is not a […]

    • I have to say Jules…..you REALLY need to do more movie reviews. You got me hooked. I am going to sign off now because I found the movie somewhere on my TV and I am going to start watching it.

      No pizza in site 😉

    • Ok….watched this CREEPY movie and have to say it was not something up my alley. But I KNOW my sisters and brothers would LOVE this so I sent them the recommendation.

      As for that disturbing scene you mentioned…… the ‘MELDING” of the 2?
      HORRIBLE ….GROSS…… SCARY!!!!

        “The melding” you got it right on.

        It wasn’t so much the visuals but the noises they were both making – it made me cringe with pity and disgust.
