Lenten Viewing Podcast

A blessed Holy Week to all.

I figured, since there is only a few days left in Lent, it was long past time for a Lenten-themed podcast.  So, for anyone looking for some classics and some slightly less-well known films to watch during this holy season, TheTimMan and I are here for you.

Selections discussed/mentioned include:  The Passion of the Christ; The Way: A Way to Forgiveness; Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago; The Ten Commandments; Into Great Silence; The Miracle Maker; and The Passion of Joan of Arc.  Of course, there are many more great candidates; these are just some of our personal favorites.

Catholic Movie Guy Episode 6 – Arrival; Walking Movies

Get your fix with Episode 6!

On the Thanksgiving week edition of the Catholic Movie Guy Podcast, we have a melange.  First, I give a brief, spoiler-free review of the new movie Arrival, a sci-fi mind-bender with a great performance by Amy Adams.  Then TheTimMan comes by to discuss two “walking” movies:  The Way, starring Martin Sheen, and A Walk in the Woods, starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte.

We address all the important questions on this one.  Can a linguist save the world?  Why won’t the Brewmaster General come on the podcast?  Could Nick Nolte really hike the Appalachian Trail with the Hippy Shakes?  What is the proper ash distribution to make along the Camino de Santiago?  Did my wife like any of these movies?  Brilliant, all the way around.

Happy Thanksgiving!
