    Lu Over the Wall

    ★★★★

    An entertaining film with some familiar tropes, but it has some interesting takes on merpeople lore. Very enjoyable for anyone who loves some goofy antics and friendship & family stories.

    American Gospel: Christ Alone

    ★★

    First of all, as a Christian, I do appreciate the exploration of critiquing the prosperity gospel popularized in television & books. It is not a sensible gospel to live by as if being healthy and wealthy is the only way you know God favors you when the Bible says differently in various circumstances.

    However, as a Christian who is not evangelical (with mainline & historically Black Protestant backgrounds), there's a lot of weaknesses in this film theologically, thematically, and just for film…

    ★★★½

    A hot mess of a docuseries. I felt like the apostle John when he saw the Whore of Babylon riding the Beast, and the angel told him to stop looking.

    I think the most important thing to take away from this is the questionable ownership he and others have had over wild animals and what the animals deserve in care as well as the people employed/volunteering in those places (when you realize it, those workers were definitely exploited, no question).

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    This is the case where it's definitely explained why the true crime community exists online decades after the fact that it happened, and I hate it.

    I hate the fact that this criminal did this to those women. I hate the fact that he left so much pain for their families and Elizabeth Kendall (actual surname is Kloepfer).

    Though this is based on her memoir about their relationship, there is a big share of the movie that focuses on him…
