The Leftovers

2014 looks like it might be the year of the Rapture… at least on TV and movie screens. As well as the upcoming Nicholas Cage Left Behind movie, we have The Leftovers.

The Leftovers looks to focus on the lives of people living in a small American town after an event, presumed to be the Rapture, results in 140 million people vanishing. It’s based on a novel by Tom Perrotta and the first season has been set at 10 episodes. It will air on HBO in the US, which probably means it will be shown on Foxtel in Australia.

Here’s the first teaser trailer.

What do you think? Christopher Eccleston appears to be involved, which automatically has me interested.

The Lego Movie (2014)

Rated PG
Starring Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Will Ferrell

Everything is awesome. It’s not just the name of the catchy and quirky pop song that plays incessantly during The Lego Movie. It’s an accurate description of the film itself. Everything about this movie is awesome. After watching The Lego Movie I want to pour a huge box full of Lego pieces on the floor and spend hours building stuff.  True,  I want to do that most days. But after watching this movie, I really really want to dive into a big pile of Lego, Scrooge McDuck style.

2013-08-10-fb cropAdam4d.com is one of my favourite webcomics. Even better, it’s a great Christian comic with a sharp satirical edge.

It wasn’t easy getting it down to five but I got there eventually. These are presented in no particular order. Is your favourite on the list?

Noah (2014)

Noah Russell PosterNoah (2014)
Rated M
Starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson
Directed by Darren Aronofsky

It’s pretty amazing that a movie like Noah even exists. A big budget retelling of a Bible story with big name actors and a special effects budget that would make a film student drool, directed by a guy best known for his quirky, arty films. Surely this is going to be a disaster. The Bible crowd will either love it or hate it and it’s going to be a tough sell to get anyone else even interested.

As an epic fantasy movie with Biblical allusions, Noah is a great film. As a Biblically faithful account of the life of Noah… Well it makes a good fantasy movie.

Church Signs – A Parody Song

This song.

Yes, this.

I’m not a big fan of church signs and their cheesy one liners. And this song pretty much sums up how I feel.

Enjoy.
