My Big Fat Greek Wedding (Nia Vardalos, 2002) spacer My Big Fat Greek Wedding (Nia Vardalos, 2002)
BY: Andrew H. Trotter, Jr.
The plot is unoriginal, the performances very good, but not great, the direction pedestrian, the camera work plain, but uninspiring - so why did this movie do so well in the box office?

BY: Andrew H. Trotter, Jr.
From the opening shot, Clint Eastwood transports us into the life a commonplace neighborhood in Irish urban Boston and shows us life in America, the complex land of lofty, immigrant dreams and dark, tragic realities.

Nanking (Bill Guttentag & Dan Sturman, 2007) spacer Nanking (Bill Guttentag & Dan Sturman, 2007)
BY: Denis Haack
Nanking is not an entertaining film, though well made and utterly enthralling. It reminds us that the brokenness that plagues Godís world is an evil that resides deep in the human heart.

spacer It's interesting to track regional tastes and idiosyncrasies. This winter as the East Coast has been hammered by storms, my fellow Minnesotans have complained about our lack of snow. Like them I figure that if we have to endure frigid temperatures we might as well be able to enjoy the satisfaction of firing up the snow blower.

Wherever we live, however, we hear rumors of wars and disease, and find ourselves wondering about the perennial questions of the human condition. We yearn for meaning and significance, but find the quest too disappointing to stop drowning out our questions with busyness or entertainment or some form of self-medication.

Ransom exists to be a safe place to explore such things. We hope you find our reflections helpful. Thanks for visiting.
