DVD Review



I apologize for not being more active, but not having other reviewers or books to review, it's been a little difficult. However I want to let you know about this wonderful DVD "God's Not Dead." Working at the library I found it on our shelves and took it home. When I brought it back I raved about it. I wanted to take it out again, but it seems word gets around. It's always on hold for someone else. That's great.

The opening scene is in a freshman college philosophy class. The professor states he is an atheist, and asks that if everyone will sign a paper with 3 little words on it he can dispense of the dust and get to the subject. Those 3 words are "God Is Dead." One student cannot sign that. He is given 3 chances to argue the case of the existence of God before the class.

Fueled by hate on one side and a determined love of God on the other this is not your simple movie. The poor kid researches and goes off on a journey of his own to state his case. The end is nothing short of amazing. I guess telling people stuff like this is one of the reasons I can't get a hold of it a second time. It's really that good.

LEAGUE OF SUPERHEROES, by Stephen, Leon Rice


Tuesday – Practically the exact opposite of Rod Davies is Charlie Taylor. Charlie had expressed a desire to be a medical doctor, but as for as the Mad Scientists Club went, his hero was someone names “Micromegas”. Micromegas had the uncanny ability of changing size. While Charlie thought it impractical to increase in size he could spout off all kinds of reasons for shrinking in size. This reminds me of “Giant Man” also known as “Ant-Man” (as Dr. Henry Pym). On the outside growing large seemed to have more appeal, yet Charlie was quick to realize the true power of being small. As a “doctor wannabee” Charlie no doubt had visions of shrinking himself down to atomic levels so that he could safely perform intricate surgery and even remove tumors in a most affective way. The rest of the now League of Superheroes didn’t have the vision that Charlie had, and as such little understanding of his fascination with miniaturization. Later on the technology that helped him shrink became invaluable. Charlie is also the most patient in the group, and sometimes the most levelheaded, which just drives the rest of the group crazy. Remember we are talking about teenagers. One of the neat things we find Charlie doing is reading to Genie online. It forms a bond between the group and Genie that hadn’t been there previously.

the most concerned about helping others, but he is also the one who is most in tune with the Holy Spirit. He's the real 'conscience' of the group.

I used to read the Justice League of America from DC comics, and on of their prominent members was Atom. That's who I firt thought of with Micromega.

Yeah Charlie is a favorite, but I like the others because they show me some of the areas where I am weak as well. It's good to be reminded that we aren't perfect. As a friend of mine put it, "Christians aren't better than the world, just better off." I also like seeing the different ways Christians of different levels of maturity and of different doctrinal backgrounds can look at the same thing and come up with something that is just as valid.

Atom, who later became Giant man and then several went through several other names, was interesting. It was sad when he could no longer change his size, but remained a giant. The Wasp, however, is left behind as a legacy of his that small is sometimes better.
