Unknown Review

Unknown plays out as a series of fascinating concepts and crises that are never realized or moored by a sense of urgency.”

Read my review @ Christianity Today.

Danny Boyle Interview

This fall, I had the honor of interviewing director Danny Boyle in regards to his latest movie, 127 Hours. We talked about quite a few things, including his optimistic perspective on life and how that is reflected in his films.

You can read part of the interview @ RELEVANT Magazine.

Somewhere Review

“Coppola finally shows that she has something to say. The film, a dark glimpse of Hollywood but a beautiful picture of redemption, turns out to be her most personal, her most meaningful and her most accomplished picture yet.”

Suffering in Mercy

Last spring, I interviewed my pastor, Matt Chandler, about his battle with cancer and theological views on it (and more) and wrote an article for RELEVANT Magazine. It originally appeared in the Winter issue of Neue and was later published online. You can read it here.

Oh, and for the record, I never called Matt an “emerging superstar.” That, as well as some other random stuff, was inserted by the editor. Oh well. I’m just glad I was able to share his story.

Green Hornet Review

“Invoking old-fashioned crimefighting franchises, and even buddy-cop flicks of the 1980s, the film entertains through and through as a hilarious mishmash of slapstick, satire and over-the-top action. It betters the unfunny cynicism of Christopher Nolan’s Batman series, as well as Jon Favreau’s self-absorbed, politically-jumbled Iron Man.”
