Hundred-Foot LEGO Movie Journey

Today I present for your listening pleasure not one but two movie related podcasts. On this week’s MovieByte, TJ and I discussed The Hundred-Foot Journey: the story of an Indian family that immigrated to rural France, where they start-up an Indian restaurant across the street from a highly rated French establishment. Entertaining competition ensues. Since Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey produced the film, it is definitely worth a review.

And, on this week’s Reel World Theology, Mikey Fissel, Mark Wingerter and I review The LEGO Movie, so far my favorite film of the year. I’m very excited to make my first guest appearance on Fizz’s podcast, which is a casual discussion of the production values and philosophical themes found in movies.

LEGO’s movie has pleasantly thoughtful substance for a world of colorful plastic bricks. If you have put off viewing the film because it is a kids’ movie you should go ahead and give it a chance. It is great for all ages.
