Return to Me (Bonnie Hunt, 2000) BY: Russell B. Ramsey Bob is a recently widowed architect. Grace is a young waitress in her grandparents Irish/Italian restaurant. They meet while Bob is on a blind date with someone we’ll just call Ms. Wrong.
A River Runs Through It (Robert Redford, 1992) BY: Russell B. Ramsey I am a child of the 70’s and 80’s. Yet this film did something profound that really shook something inside me awake. And it is still awake.
The Sandlot (David Evans, 1993) BY: Russell B. Ramsey The Sandlot is a movie that doesn’t demand you think with much depth. But it does demand that you remember—and it requires a high level of vulnerability.
Wit (Mike Nichols, 2001) BY: Russell B. Ramsey Vivian Bearing has formed her life around words and wit. Her devotion to the academic world of literary criticism reveals much about her intellectual capacity, but says little of her capacity for love.
Saved! (Brian Dannelly, 2004) BY: Travis Scott Saved! offers an undisguised, unapologetic attack on conservative Christianity and its claims to knowing the truth. It is a satirical portrayal of a fundamentalist Christian high school and a look into the lives of several of its students.
Collateral (Michael Mann, 2004) BY: Travis Scott Director Michael Mann (Ali, The Insider, Heat) has a penchant for developing truly human characters in his films. This penchant turns an ordinary action movie into an exploration of what happens when two worldviews collide and forces us to answer questions we would rather leave unasked.
Chevelle, This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In (2004) BY: Travis Scott On their third full-length EP Peter, Samuel and Joseph (the three brothers who form Chevelle) deliver an aggressive powerhouse of an album.
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I don’t much care for myself.

This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.
Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
