  • There is only one Golden Compass left in one of earth’s parallel universes. So we’re told. Where did the compasses come from? And exactly why were the others taken away? “The Golden Compass” is taken from the first in a trilogy of novels by Phillip Pullman. This film is burdened with exposition necessary to set up the sequels which follow. Of course the financial success of this first one will determine if the next two films are even made. In addition, there is the controversy of Mr. Pullman’s attack on Christianity during the course of this epic struggle.

  • It’s hard to believe that the Christmas season is already here. I have been meditating upon the birth of Christ and how it always points back to the resurrection and vice versa. Although Believers are celebrating the birth of Jehoshua-Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ), it’s impossible not to reflect upon His purpose of coming. His whole purpose of His coming is that the Christian can have eternal life, and abundant life in the Now. He truly is King and Lord over all.

  • Occasionally there is a story in the news about a patient, after being anesthetized, going through surgery but still being aware of what is happening. At the same time feeling all the pain, and hearing the conversations being said. That is what happens to Clayton Beresford, financier extraordinaire in “Awake,” a tense drama with wicked twists, but not much else. The medical procedures are sloppy. How can we feel Clay’s horror when each scene gets more and more out-of-control?
