Thoughts on the Naturalism of Netflix’s Spectral

Warning, this is a spoiler-filled discussion on the movie. Spectral is a movie about U.S. military forces in a war-torn Moldova, encountering what seems at first to be a collection of hostile supernatural entities. By the end of the movie, it is discovered these entities are “unnatural,” but in the man-made sense, not in the supernatural.

The Reconciler: Fair Thoughts and Review

Fair warning: Although I tried to limit potential spoilers, this review may have some minor ones or, at least, some clues that could lead one to figure out major spoilers for the movie.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Defending Finn

The Remaining: Fair Thoughts and Review

I had it posted over on Resist Studios, but I’ve decided to put it back on Media Observers The other night while scouring through Vudu and Amazon Instant Video, an interesting movie caught my attention. Since I’ve been taking time to experience the visual representation others put into Christian stories, “The Remaining” caught my eye.  Once...

Roy’s Analysis, Rants, and Problems with Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad Trailers

This post was originally posted on the old Media Observers site before it went down, we had to change hosting companies and all that… While watching the most recent trailers of the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad movies, I found myself compelled to write this analysis, although, other than my early Suicide Squad post, I have been pretty avoidant of the issue for the past few years. Sadly, it will probably...
