Water World

‘The Impossible’ an intense drama of tsunami survival

If you’ve ever had a hankering to find out what it’s like to be swept up in a tsunami—without, you know, the life-threatening peril—look no further than The Impossible. Spanish filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona’s intense drama is based on a true story of survival in the wake of the ferocious Asian Pacific tsunami of December 2004; it plunges the viewer smack into the middle of utter chaos when a rogue wall of water rises up and devastates everything in its path for miles around in a matter of minutes.

Last of the Best

Five noteworthy 2012 films to watch for in 2013 

The carols have been sung, the New Year's champagne quaffed, and various large, stuffed, cinematic holiday hams have been delivered to local movie theaters. It may seem like it's all over but the shouting as far as end-of-the-year Hollywood blockbuster movie releases go. But wait.

Femmes On Film

Femmes On Film

Women star in three pivotal movie trends of 2012  

As women (very slowly) gain more clout and credence in the film biz, it's worth noting how our image is evolving onscreen. Three trends emerged in the films of 2012 that touch in some way on how women are presented—or present themselves—in the movies.

Hard Hobbit To Break

Hard Hobbit To Break

‘The Hobbit’ wanders too far from its own creative shire 

Balin, Dwalin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Nori, Dori and Ori are 12 dwarfs tempting fate. (And their names are kind of cool, too.) Led by Thorin, son of a fallen king who, like many other dwarfs long, long ago, lost his life in a most bloody battle between their enemies, the Orcs (their ugly trumps their nasty), these eager “dwarriors” boldy set out on a mission to reclaim their lost dwelling on The Lonely Mountain in Middle Earth. They seek the help of a wizard named Gandalf, who, in turn, opts to bring a reluctant hobbit along for the ride.

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
