KC on Movies: Moana
Now, it's time for KC on movies!
KC:  A young Polynesian princess must journey across the sea to find a missing demigod and save the world in Disney's latest animated hit Moana.  After her island home is threatened with destruction, young Moana (Auli'i Cravalho) must defy her father's wish that she remain on the safety of said island and journey across the sea, called by mysterious forces, to find the missing demigod Maui (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) to restore an artifact called "the heart of Te Fiti) so that the forces threatening to destroy all life may be stopped.  Along the way she encounters a colorful cast of characters, including the singing villainous crab Tamatoa (Jermaine Clement of Rio fame) who threaten to derail her entire mission.
Torch:  How Disney manages to find such obscure yet talented VA's to fill its casts, I'll never be able to figure out.  Cravalho is riveting in the title role, playing the determined yet insecure lea

Prayer for Police
Heavenly Father, look down with favor on your people who cry to you, as we pour forth our prayers for all police, sheriffs, deputies and officers of the law.  By your holy will, and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, our mother, and of Saint Joseph, her most holy and chaste spouse, and of Saint Michael the Archangel, patron of all law enforcers, may they be protected from all harm and carry out their duties faithfully and with compassion and zeal for justice.  Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.  Amen

KC on Movies: The Jungle Book (2016)
Now it's time for KC on Movies!
KC:  Director Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Elf) brings us this latest remake of the 1967 animated Disney classic.  
Torch:  The thing that struck me the most about this film was how writer Justin Marks manages to capture the original characters while at the same time giving them new depth.  Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is still the same scamp who doesn't want to leave the jungle, but also comes across as a mature-beyond-his-years kid when he volunteers to leave the wolf pack he has known all his life to protect them from the menacing Shere Kahn (Idris Elba).  Speaking of which, Elba gives perhaps the best voice performance of his career as the film's primary villain, a rules-lawyer who take advantage of the "law of the jungle" banning man to take revenge and kill the son of the man who gave him his scars; a vicious, blood-chilling portrayal of absolute evil and remorseless bloodlust.  Sir Ben Kingsley lends his voice t

KC on Movies: Inside Out
Now, it's time for KC on Movies!
KC:  Disney-Pixar takes a look at the voices inside your head in their latest animated offering Inside Out.  Going inside the head of 11-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias), Inside Out introduces us to anthropomorphic forms representing typical emotions; Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), and Disgust (Mindy Kaling).  When Riley moves from Minnesota to San Francisco, it's a big adjustment; made even bigger when Joy and Sadness go missing and she's forced to try and adjust to her new surroundings with only her feelings of anger, fear and disgust.  A crazy romp through her mind leads to an epiphany about the relationship between her various emotions and finally saves the day.
Torch:  I forget the name of the casting director for this flick, but whoever they are deserves a raise and a bonus for the assemblage of talent they put together here.  The voice cast

KC On Movies: Jurassic World
Now, it's time for KC on movies!
KC:  InGen's famous genetically engineered prehistoric terrors are back on the rampage in Universal's Jurassic World.  Set twenty-two years after the events of the original film, a new company has stepped forward to accomplish the original dream of John Hammond and have created a fully functional dinosaur theme park on the original island.  With visitors - and bucks - shrinking, park managers decide to go from resurrecting dinosaurs to actually making them and cook up the aptly named Indominus Rex under the direction of familiar face Dr. Henry Wu (B.D. Wong).  To absolutely no one's surprise, the genetically engineered monstrosity escapes it's enclosure, forcing park manager Claire Darling (Bryce Dallas Howard) to team up with Velociraptor trainer (you heard that right) Owen Grady (Christ Pratt) to stop the beast after attempts by park security fail.  Along the way they must save her nephews Gray and

On this date, 100 years ago in 1917, the first apparition of Our Lady appeared at Fatima, Portugal to Lucia dos Santos (Later Sister Maria Lucia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart, O.C.D.), and siblings Francisco and Jacinta Marto.

In 1917, the world was in chaos. World War I had just exited it's bloodiest year yet (1916 having seen the apocalyptic battles of the Somme and Verdun). In Russia, the 304-year-old Romanov dynasty had fallen and the country was entering into a bloody Communist revolution. In Mexico, the aggressively anti-clerical government of Venustiano Carranza was savagely persecuting the Church (which would eventually lead to the Cristero War of 1926-1929). In Portugal proper, the government had dragged its country into the world and, like in Mexico, was persecuting the Church.

Our Lady urged the young children to the daily recitation of the Holy Rosary for peace in the world and the conversion of sinners and specifically requested the First Saturday Devotions and the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart. Since 1917, Catholics around the world have honored her request, diligently praying and offering sacrifices for the conversion of poor sinners. On this day, I encourage everyone who reads this journal to do the same.

Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of Hell. Lead all souls into heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy!

I guess some folks just don't like being told they're wrong.

Oh, and I should add that it isn't' just your opinion, it's pretty much fact.  I've looked through his stuff and if he's not outright plagiarizing, he's seriously close to it.
