X-Men: Days of Future Past

The last time Patrick Stewart was involved in a franchise handing-off time-bending movie, it didn't go so well (see: Star Trek, Generations). However, he didn't have Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Bryan Singer, Wolverine, Quicksilver, or even a South Pole Elf to back him up. How do things go this time? Let the One Minute Review be your guide.

I talk to Christian Pastors about Movies

My friend Ed Stetzer has a webshow, which he does for LifeWay. It has an audience made up of mainly Evangelical pastors. Ed is a cool guy with good stuff to say, much of which you can find on his blog at www.edstetzer.com

A couple of weeks ago, he made the huge mistake of interviewing me about Church, movies, and the One Minute Review. So, if you want to see me and Ed talk movies for an hour (and who doesn't?), check it out:
