I have recently added four new links to the Web Links Resources sidebar.
The first is "Film-Think," a new blog offered by Michael Leary, a Ph.D. candidate in New Testament Literature at the University of Edinburgh. This is a deep and thoughtful blog collection. In addition, he has two essays posted there, “What On Earth is Christian Film Criticism?” and the follow-up: “How Should We Then Review?“
The second is the link to an article called "The Moment of Clarity," by Blake Snyder, author of the Save the Cat books. This article addresses the hero's journey in movies and shows how the moment of clarity links to the theme stated at the beginning of the movie.
The third is "The Numbers," a web-site that offers all kinds of statistics on box office receipts and DVD sales. It is a wealth of information that is invaluable as backgound and backstory.
The fourth is the link to the Mosaic Future Movie Recommendations -- your input for future movies. Check out all four links . . . you might find them useful!
Coming soon to this blog: my reviews of No Country for Old Men, Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium, In the Valley of Elah, and He Was a Quiet Man.
