"Risen" is the new movie that will be released tomorrow, Feb. 19th. This really looks like it is well made and one that I think I would like to see. There are some familiar faces in this movie for me since I watch so many British TV shows and movies! Let me know if any of you see it but don't spoil it for me and tell me too much since I might not have time to see it right away. Don't worry though, I know how it ends!
Just remembering the TV movie of "Jesus of Nazareth" from the 70's, I think it was. Anybody remember it? I thought that was an incredible work of great film making. Jesus was played by Robert Powell and John The Baptist was Michael York, both excellent British actors. (Mary Magdalene was played by Anne Bancroft and she was also wonderful.)
Oh, and I just saw that there will be another movie that will come out this year called "The Young Messiah" and it will be about Jesus as a child. (Seems like they could have brought the movie out FIRST about Jesus as a child and THEN released the one of the Resurrection! But hey, that is Hollywood for you.) I don't know that much about the film but I do know that Sean Bean will be one of the stars. And if you don't know Sean Bean...well, you should! He is another one of those British actors that I like!
Hope you are all doing well these days. As for me, my energy level is rather low during February but hey, March will be here soon! Take care, my friends.
