On the big screen end, a couple more of the books on my bookshelf are on their way to the big screen: the Brazilian spiritually-threaded The Alchemist (which I read a couple of years ago in a book club) and the-old-news-I’ve-been-meaning-to-share Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz (whose Searching for God Knows What is one of my favorite books). On the remake end, FilmChat reports that cult-classic Highlander is up for a make-over. Heh, I highly recommended this one-of-my-favs movie to my best friend many years back, who reported later that she and her husband laughed all the way through it. Ouch. Not the response they were supposed to have, heh. Peter Chattaway also blogged through Spielburg’s Close Encounters in prep for his early screening of the Spielburg-Lucas Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (but has breathed nary a word on that screening—what’s up with that?!). Speaking of the latest Indy film (which this blogger will see this weekend), Looking Closer’s Jeffrey Overstreet has a review up over at Christianity Today and Rotten Tomatoes has it running at 79% (huh, that’s not as good as Iron Man). Also, check out the bloggy reviews of Prince Caspian by C-Orthodoxy, Peregrin Pages and Church of the Masses. Oh, and check out the new Hellboy II poster above (hat tip to Looking Closer)!
On the small screen end, well, there’s a sneak peek at CW’s updated 90210. Oiy, I feel old. Also, Lost and BSG are coming up on their final episodes for the season in the next week or two. Oh, if you get A&E, they're debuting a remake of the sci-fi classic The Andromeda Strain this weekend.
Oh, and check out the top 10 spiritual characters in television and film science fiction at BeliefNet (hat tip Claw of the Conciliator). I’m partial to 5, 7 and 10 myself—I even tested as one once. Heh.
