The Cardinal and Shoes of the Fisherman are very good movies love em.
I have not seen Shoes of the Fisherman but I think I'm going to have to check it out. It looks good and plus I'm a huge Anthony Quinn fan so its one I'm going to watch.
Hey, Anthony Quinn is my favorite actor! Have you seen Barrabas?

My wife and I saw The Blind Side a couple of days ago (local cinema has half-price admission on Tuesdays). A delightful "feel good" type movie. Not great theatrically, but enjoyable. Hollywood glosses over but doesn't quite eliminate the central family's (Evangelical) Christian faith.
Glosses over? It's pretty much front and center. ::)

I'd have to disagree. The centrality of their Christian faith was treated as an aside, not as the focal point of the movie. But I didn't mind that, because it wasn't intended to be a "Christian" movie. Although it would have been nice if they had emphasized it more.

My Goal for Christmas Break: Watch all of the Lord of the Rings.

What do you guys think of Lars von Trier films (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lars_von_Trier)? Lesya and I saw "The Element of Crime," "Breaking the Waves," "The Idiots," "Dancer in the Dark," "Dogville," and even though we sometimes do not quite like certain things in these films, we appreciate the scale of this artist. We also saw a few films directed by von Trier's disciples from the "Dogme95" group of cinematographers (can't recall the names of the directors right now, but do recall one name of the film, "(Name), The Donkey Boy" (about the inner world of a young man who has schizophrenia).

Barabbas is one of my favorite movies actually; it is such a great movie. I think it was my third film that I saw with Anthony Quinn in it. The first time I saw him was in Lawrence of Arabia in his classic performance as Auda Abu Tayi which made me become a huge fan of his. He is definitely one of my favorite actors.

Somebody is stealing my Netflix movies out of my mailbox, and then returning them when they are done with them!

Well, first of all, it's written in Chinese. Second, you mentioned that they have available for download movies that are still in theatres, and the only ones who would have such a thing are pirates. So if I were in your position, I'd not download anything else from that site.

That's not the link you provided me with earlier, but that too is a pirate site. So my advice is to avoid both ch131.com and ch.131.com.

The FBI typically only go after the distributors. Just delete anything you might have obtained from that site, including cookies, and don't go back there again, and you should be okay.

That is a really excellent production (also starring Anthony Quinn). Have you seen the later TV mini-series called A.D.? It is a sequal to Jesus of Nazareth that shows the Acts of the Apostles. It is extremly well done.
