I’ve only touched on comics with The Lego Batman Movie and a few random panels from occasional Superman comics, but I am a HUGE fan of comics. I am a much larger fan of DC than Marvel for personal reasons but I completely respect what Marvel has done for the genre. Last night I saw Wonder Woman, and loved it.
As a subtle but not so subtle transition, I spoke about all types of relationships except the one that is most important to me, God. All this week is inspired by my exploration of my relationship with God. I wasn’t able to see The Shack yet, so let’s talk about a surprise enjoyment, War Room instead.
A few weeks ago I was watching Up, and I must admit that I was late to the party. The movie itself was charming and went from ordinary to strange very quickly. The entire first ten minutes were cinematic genius and for five of them, not a single word was uttered. I was in awe by how great this scene was and the power of movies to convey something deeper.
We live in an era where every movie and franchise through time is being given a gritty reboot, shot completely in shades of black, teal, and orange with shaky cam and lens flare. The series that started this change has now taken a new form, Legos, and the Dark Knight rises again!! [Note: This post is spoiler-free but I do recommend you seeing it.]
I saw Disney’s Moana today and cried. If you have not seen it yet, I recommend a good Google search, dollar theater, or getting it the moment it comes to a Red Box near you. It was everything I possibly could have hoped for from a modern Disney movie and more. It had a more mature tone, action, funny anthropomorphic entities, and NO PRINCE love story thrown in the last-minute. I found myself relating to Moana more than any other Disney character since Aladdin the animated series.
Note: This is not a movie review. This is a reflection/response. Only the slightest early spoilers that a Google search would ruin are included. If you want to see the movie fresh, check this post out later.
