Jerry Maguire

Continuing two themes from last week’s episode – what did Tim happen to watch and sports movies – we tackle (SEE WHAT I DID THERE) the 1996 Cameron Crowe film Jerry Maguire.

Starring Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger, with an Academy Award-winning supporting performance from Cuba Gooding, Jr., we use this flawed but engaging movie as a springboard to discuss the inner workings of grace and the true meaning of marriage (seriously), amidst the normal frivolous banter.

Podcast Episode 9 – A Man for All Seasons

Episode 9, feeling fine.

On this week’s podcast, we tackle an all time classic, A Man for All Seasons.  Currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Academy Award winner never fails to impress.  Poignant and resonant, it is a movie that, despite or perhaps because of its release date and subject matter, feels just as relevant today as ever.

We discuss the movie in light of recent events in the pontificate of Pope Francis in addition to the purely historical aspects of St. Thomas’ predicament.  We also meet Bourbon TimMan and find out my wife’s thoughts on the film.
