Hi All! Last weekend I was out of town giving a retreat at a seminary… and just never got the chance to post a newsletter. I figured it was better just to wait a week to catch up, so here we are. A lot of great stuff to watch this Thanksgiving week!
Psycho is Brilliant
If you’re like me and had never seen the Alfred Hitchcock movie Psycho, you’ve got some homework to do. It’s brilliant. In this week’s Everyday Liminality, Fr. Tito and I marvel at how masterfully Hitchcock builds suspense, noting that it created its own genre in 1960.
Back to the Plot Holes!
I love the Back to the Future franchise. I also think that they’re garbage movies if you think about them too hard. Keep it light and enjoy the summer blockbuster.
Some priests knew that they wanted to be priests when they were little. I was not one of them. I ran from the idea even into my first year as a friar. Learn what kept me away and what ultimately changed my mind.
Yup. Fr. Patrick and I reviewed Wonder Woman. Well, not the whole movie, just a scene, but pretty great nonetheless. Who knew there was such religious imagery in a comic book movie?
A Trip Down Memory Lane… For Some of Us
There are few things that will get me excited more than reliving my childhood memories of Nickelodeon. In the 90s and early 2000s it was king among kids. Unfortunately, Fr. Patrick grew up in the 60s and 70s, so it was kind of lost on him.
For those in the United States, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
