So, while taking a break from my Unschooled Master of Theology Program and now my Master of Theology at NationsU, I caught one of my favorite movies, Up in the Air.
You know, the movie with George Clooney and Anna Kendrick, directed by Jason Reitman – you know, right?
Well, if you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s a really great movie with a great cast and touches on the fundamental nature of humans and how we treat each other (and ourselves).
So, lets tackle this fascinating movie and see where we end up.
Here we go…
This movie has been around for awhile. It was one of the first movies I saw of Jack Black, and since then, I’ve always kept my eye out for anything he’s in and watched it automatically.
So, it wasn’t a surprise when I took a break last week from my Unschooled Master of Theology Program assignments and immediately got hooked on a blast from the past, The School of Rock!
Have you seen it? Did you like it as much as I did? Let me know in the comments what you think of this movie or any Jack Black movie as well.
So, let’s jump in and find out why The School of Rock should be required for any curriculum…
Not long ago I wrote a book review about Before the Fall by Noah Hawley. That was a pretty okay book, one I actually managed to finish after a few trips over to the Eden property several summers ago.
But, I also stumbled onto this move, which I at first thought was a movie version of the book, but later discovered it replaced the “the” with an “I” and the movie has absolutely nothing to do with the book.
And, while at the property this week, I took a break from my Unschooled Master of Theology Program and finished this movie.
I was actually rather surprised to find a half decent story with a pretty above average ending.
So, lets take a few seconds and see how great it really was…
While at the Eden Property this week, I watched a documentary about alien encounters. Now, I’m not a witness of any kind of extra terrestrial encounter, I’ve never seen in person any kind of crop circles nor did I serve in any kind of clandestine military organization focused on the impending intergalactic war, but I do find the idea of non-human entities enticing.
Not only this, but it does seem like the main thrust of consciousness studies today are focused on a particular world-view that fits in rather well with the current research I’m doing in my Unschooled Master of Theology Program.
This documentary, Close Encounters of the 5th Kind by Dr. Steven Greer, was quite interesting.
So, let’s explore the more eerie facets of the reality we are living in….
It’s rare anymore that I stumble onto a movie that not only captivates my imagination, but one that I can literally watch over and over again and still find myself wrapped up in the characters like I do with the movie, The Adjustment Bureau.
When taking a break from my Unschooled Master of Theology Program I often find myself watching reruns of movies. That’s what I found myself doing about midweek while at Eden, and it was this movie that again caught my attention.
Not to mention, I discovered I have never actually written a review for this movie yet. Nows as good a time as any.
So, lets jump in and find out what’s so special about The Adjustment Bureau.
Here we go…
Okay. I have to say, I usually turn bad movies off almost immediately. I mean, I’m not able to define bad acting, but I sure do know it when I see it. And, these two movies are full of bad acting. I’m not kidding. We’re talking D rated acting.
But, there was something really compelling about the story, I’m not really able to put my finger on it. Whatever it was, I ended up watching both movies all the way through, and I’ve come away from the experience wanting to know what happens with all the characters.
And, that’s pretty rare!
So, settle in for quite a story. Or, better yet, I think you should just watch the movies for yourself. If nothing else, they are HILARIOUSLY bad!

I managed to catch the latest installment of the Terminator franchise tonight. I have to say, I think it lives up to the hype.
That’s not to say there aren’t some things I think they should have avoided, a few things with which they could have done better. But, all in all, it’s a great addition to the overall universe of AI infused machines hell bent on destroying humanity. Be forewarned. This review will have a lot of spoilers.

It’s been a VERY long time since we’ve seen anything new in the Predator Franchise. Was I surprised when I stumbled onto a trailer on Youtube for the newest installment that hit theaters in September 2018.
Shortly after the premiere, I heard negative feedback panning the movie and was a little surprised. I mean, the last effort to re-imagine the story line with Predators in 2010 was, at least in my opinion, a wild success.
Needless to say, I had to see for myself.
How long had it been since the second Maze Runner had hit the theaters and we’d plunged head long into a WCKD controlled world of illness and death and conspiracy?
Another great movie starring Justin Long. These kind of movies seem to sit on the shelf when they first come out, almost sleeper movies that I never really hear anything about, and just happen to find them by accident. But, the story, the acting, everything is great and over the top with hilarity. My favorite […]
