Les Miserables

This is the One Minute Review of Les Miserables.  Do you hear the people sing?  Do you hear them sing well?  Two totally different questions.  Fr. Thomas McKenzie, a self-proclaimed "theater person," has been to the movies and can answer all your questions.  At least the basic questions about Jean Valjean & Co.

The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey

This is extra-long One Minute Review of the extra-long Hobbit movie.  Both are self-indulgent and filled with more content than you need.  That's called being "meta."

Life of Pi


This is the One Minute Review of Ang Lee's "Life of Pi." A boy, a boat, a tiger, and a confused understanding of God. Does it make for good theology, a good story, both, or neither? Fr. Thomas McKenzie has an opinion, if not all the answers.

Anna Karenina


Joe Wright and Keira Knightley are back together for the 50,000th film version of Tolstoy's great novel of love, marriage and morality. The One Minute Review has been to the theater and has returned with three minutes of thoughts. Thinking of seeing this film, spend a few minutes with Fr. Thomas McKenzie first.
