Profile Information

  • Interests
    Film, Music, nature, hiking. I play the drums and some guitar, and have been drawing cartoons for over 20 years.

    I also have a deep interest in experiencing, and comprehending God, and believe that one of the ways to do this is through the arts. This is a thing that Christianity has sometimes lost sight of .

    This interest often leads to a theological quest.

  1. See my apology in the short parking section. I shouldn't have decided to walk away from this community. People should be able to follow any interests and political pursuits they chose (within reason of course) without fear of rejection.
  2. I'm leaving Artsandfaith and won't be taking part in this discussion any longer. Enjoy the film.
  3. Yeah, they did a lot of neat tricks with him. The part of him jumping out the window the way it did was fantastic. Goofy, funny, yet also entirely creepy. Yeah there was so much going on there.
  4. Right. They also manage to make the character frightening, but then at times kind of like able, quirky, and fun. His singing in the apartment comes to mind, he was having a great time. My favourite scene with him was the scene where he got slapped. Such fine acting. I had to rewind it several times. Welcome. Remember, this was made under communism. I'm surprised that it had what it did. I think it could have been integrated further in the sense that connecting the dots of the connection between those variety of things might be a leap for some. Not su
  5. IMO Suicide Squad wasn't too "light", so far as that goes. My biggest complaint is that the middle section started to drone on with basically the same unchanging story, and then started to become garbled when it jump from scene to scene with no apparent rhyme or reason. I found myself wondering if I had phased out and missed some transitional shots, but then I realize that I hadn't, it just kind of jumped there. That's almost certainly in part to do with the reshoots. But it's also almost certainly to do with a lack of editorial control in piecing them together. Or maybe they just didn't
  6. I'm pretty sure it does. Although I think it's fairly clear that there are other aspects to the character which are a bit hazy to us. Oh, yes. It is great. The ideas surrounding it are fantastic. I love that this part of the film gives such an interwoven commentary on science, faith, the arts, communism, culture, history. etc. So much of which is depicted in those images. When I think about it, it's pretty much all there. There also might be little bit of a 1950's type sci-fi/horror flick thrown into the mix. There's a lot to dig. You might not have made
  7. Our interaction with "the world" really is a tricky thing. I happen to think that some things in the world and secular culture can be of benefit and can speak to us, and even correct us, but other things.... not so much. I've always been a big advocate of engaging culture with intentional discernment, but it seems that some people have more of an ability to be discerning than others. I can also see why, at least a times, some would want to quit worrying about discerning things all of the time, to just give it a rest. To be honest, last night when I read through the thread I was a littl
  8. Seems to me that he was practical effects with some CGI tweeking.
  9. Okay, I can live with that. Yes, I completely agree that with at least certain people outside of the pulpit it isn't productive. Some people are also too *far* to really even comprehend the argument I would be making. I had written that here with the understanding that many, or most, at Artsandfaith could be considered to be at least somewhere "within the pulpit". I still do think it's noteworthy. Some people are not interested in what Christians have to say and feel that it has little answers for the culture. In C.S. Lewis' time, people who were not Christians would b
  10. I found Pete's Dragon more touching and personal, but the new Jungle Book is a sweeping adventure with some pretty impressive animated characters.
  11. I think Plantinga would have definitely had more influence overall. He was an influence on many current Christian philosophers to follow that craft, and is held as one of the fathers of the recent resurgence of Christian philosophy. I would think that the others are on a current list simply because they have published widely regarded books of late.
