The Lonely Barricades


A Kingdom of Conscience, a Kingdom of Heaven

Mandatory Kingdom of Heaven blog entry.

THAT MOVIE IS SO EPIC. Like, even though the Templars were not shown in a very good light, and the only clergy you ever see are corrupt, it still was epic. For some reason Tiberias reminds me of my vocations director. :|


Snow White And The Seven Dwarves

Okay, it blew Avengers out of the water for me, And passed out THG and For Greater Glory as well; has to be my favorite movie this year, as of now. It told the fairytale in the traditional sense, insomuch as it ad libbed a good deal,but nonetheless formed a good story. The setting was awesome, especially, ESPECIALLY, the armor. I also had to refrain myself from screaming 'YES' when Snow White prayed at the start. It introduced an interesting underlying theme.

Of course, I was at a drive in, and the first movie playing was... Brave. Didn't like it much at all, honestly, I sympathized greatly with the mother, and the princess annoyed me to no end. The best part of the movie, IMO, was when the queen restored order to the clan-brawl.

There is of course, the woman warrior factor, which I don't think I'll touch on, just because my views are rather unorthodox with those of a great deal of others, and I'm not interested in starting a debate... Let me just say that I liked Snow White's form of woman warrior far more than Brave's.

So yeah, Snow White and the Huntsman, good movie, I want to see it again badly.

In other news, my RPG, Strike From the Shadows, is in second place, solidly. Happy about that. :)


¡viva Cristo Rey!

Just saw For Greater Glory today; just it time it seems, as it's practically out of CT already.

Overall, it was an excellent movie, although I hear that it was somewhat inaccurate when it came to Gorostieta and Fr. Vega.

It was most certainly tragic, although it would have been more so if they had actually mentioned the immediate effects that the end of the war had. It was also quite violent and filled with what might be termed 'disturbing images'; namely people being hanged, shot, stabbed, shot, etc. Fortunately, violence isn't something that fazes me.

One of my favorite things all out however is their portrayal of Catholicism; too often you see movies completely misrepresenting Catholicism (Season of the Witch for instance), so it was refreshing to see it presented accurately.

I am totally looking for it to come out on DVD.


Dear Marvel

Your depiction of frost giants is completely despicable.

In other words, I watched Avengers. It was okay. Not extremely good, but decent. I found that I could stand Tony Stark this time.


The Hunger Games

That movie is seriously epic. I (unexpectedly) saw it this evening.

Katniss having a bow was epic.

Oh, and those dogs...

Don't like therm.

Scary. :fear:


Did you see them going off to fight?
Children of the barricade that didn't last the night.
They were schoolboys, never held a gun,
Fighting for a new world that would rise up like the sun.
Where's that new world now the fighting's done?
