Many American evangelicals do believe that Israel holding its historic territory is spiritually important, but that doesn’t mean we think any political decisions are going to force God’s hand.
The film presents as something shallow and not really worthy of deep critical attention. Then it feeds the viewers deep issues in rather overt ways.
Jonah Goldberg is certainly not naive about the role religion plays in the ‘miracle’ of western classical liberalism. ‘Suicide of the West’ is best understood as an apologetic to non-conservatives.
To understand why this show simply doesn’t work, compare it to a 20-year-old sci-fi film that almost certainly had some influence on these show runners: ‘The Truman Show.’
Each of DC’s major characters is essentially a sun at the center of their own solar system. Their gravity is so strong they maintain multiple planets all on their own.
On a normal night the Bruins would’ve probably stolen this game away. But this wasn’t a normal night.
The scarred heart of humanity that breathes life into all fiction is what makes Superman truly great. And in many ways his story is the story of America.
This little superhero film is a textbook in MacGuffin. It even has an extra featurette discussing the nature of MacGuffins.
I don’t think anyone would have ever guessed that the guy who played Jim Halpert on the U.S. version of ‘The Office’ might have anything to do with a discussion of essential horror filmmakers.
‘Silicon Valley’ completely embraces the absolute and utter ridiculousness that is the creative male mind. There’s no romance or tragedy, but there is hilarity and blind luck.

‘The Top 10 Westerns Ever Made, Plus 10 More Deep Cuts’ was deeply disappointing to this film buff. So here’s a deeper, better, alternative list.
The heartbeat that drives ‘The Karate Kid’ may be stronger now than it was in 1984. For all its superficial flaws, this film overflows with timeless wisdom for how to raise good men.
The Oscars continually award ‘importance’ over quality, and Meryl Streep’s yearly perfunctory nomination cheapens the entire ceremony.
This film is an opportunity to see what the natural world might be like if the principle of sufficient reason were false and God had abandoned us to Darwin and Nietzsche.
This was a man who could fill a sports arena to get people to hear about the good news of Jesus Christ, a subject most of us would feel timidity about bringing up at the water cooler.
The screenwriters somehow managed to make the character seem smaller and weaker inside a film that was supposed to be all about the Black Panther.
This solid Batman film is continued proof that the problem with the DC live-action universe is more complex than simply blaming Zack Snyder or saying the films are too dark.
As I watched Netflix’s ‘Before I Wake,’ I told the late-night tweeterverse how excellent I thought the film. The film’s screenwriter, Jeff Howard, messaged me in response.
