Movie Musing
Monthly
 
Movie Musing is a film podcast for discussing and debating current and classic cinema (and sometimes TV). Co-hosts Quentin, Demetrios, & Matt hope to share some knowledge of film and to find people with unique perspectives- this way we can learn more about the world of movies and what movies can tell us about the real world. The analysis is clean but not always conventional.
 
Harold Hoffman has been the pastor of First Church for over 20 years and is in demand to speak all over the world. His ability to take the most complex aspects of hidden wonders contained within the Bible and convey them in a simple and yet powerful message will often leave you speechless and craving for more of a peek into the hidden treasures of God's Word. All it takes is one listen and you will quickly realize that this isn't the typical preaching that you may be accustomed to.

"Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" is a recent adaptation of the acclaimed children's book series by Alvin Schwartz and unlike recent horror titles featuring children, it is truly made for a young adult audience.

Ari Aster took the indie circuit by storm with his mighty horror debut 'Hereditary,' and lightning may have struck twice because he seems to have shaken off any semblance of a sophomore slump.

Why do we identify as "a fan" when we like something? Sure, we may love the content associated with a fictional world, but there is often something about it that resonates with us in our daily lives. This has been a unique opportunity for cinema goers and television aficionados in the online era and it has ushered in many new opportunities. Som ...…
 
What's true in a fictional world and when are interpretations valid? That all depends on who you ask. There are certainly times when creators get overzealous (looking at you, J.K. Rowling), but what about when the audience is out of line and the author is validating concepts that are being overlooked? We analyze several examples of this in film ...…
