A Film To Be Passionate About

And just to counteract all the agnostic/atheistic leanings of the previous posts, here's a movie I haven't seen yet but want to: "The Nativity Story." Keisha Castle-Hughes plays Mary and I'm hopeful she'll make her a real character rather than a sainted icon. From the trailer alone, "The Nativity Story" seems much closer to the important message of the Gospels than a thousand bloody, violent, nihilistic viewings of "The Passion Of The Christ." Here's one you can take the kids to, and shouldn't you think twice before seeing a movie about Christ that you WOULDN'T take the kids to? Here's the official website and here's the trailer via Apple.

Thanks, anonymous. I've been in a car for the past two days away from an internet connection and cursing myself for my stupid mistake which I realized about five minutes after I left my apartment in NYC. However, you did win me a bet since the moment we arrived I said there would be a comment correcting me cause nothing gets people blogging like a gotcha. (I do it too.) I'd give you credit but of course, you're anonymous.

Actually, that was my comment above, posted from my friend's house in Illinois where I spent Thanksgiving.
