“Julie and Julia” – This movie is a perfect recipe of writing, blogging, food, relationships and love. Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are awesome in this movie. I love blogging and food so for me this movie is one of my favorites. Its kind of in the same genre as “You’ve Got Mail”.  If you haven’t seen it, do so it will give you food for thought and soul.

Man of Steel, A Good Movie In Parts – We saw the latest Superman incarnation today and it was a good movie in parts. It had moments of great story telling showing how Kal-El/Clark Kent became Superman. From Krypton to Earth it was a great story. Then there came a lot of violence and planetary destruction including Smalltown and Metropolis. I would rather see less chaos in movies like these, but maybe that’s the point. Henry Cavill has become Superman in a big way. Amy Adams is great as Lois Lane. Great performances overall.

I taught a lesson on this movie in Sunday school. There is some great imagery and parallels to the story of Jesus and Moses in this movie. Its interesting that two Jewish brothers created this super hero tale.
