42

In my opinion, next year's Oscars are wrapped up already. This movie about Jackie Robinson's entry into baseball is the best movie I've seen in years.

Anyone tempted to believe that religious belief does nothing but harm should ask if they still believe this after seeing the movie. The moral conviction behind Branch Rickey's ending the segregation of baseball comes from his Methodism.

I got the same sense. Harrison Ford's acting was amazing, the message, plot and tone of the movie were equally impressive. It showed the good and bad of religious thought, it showed numerous aspects of the culture of the 40's that are seldom spoken of in films and its overall just a very entertaining work of art.

So this post is directed at no person ever.
