We watched a ton of movies this weekend for some reason. Friday, with the rainy evening, we ordered pizza and introduced the kids to E.T. I hadn't seen that movie in at least ten years. It held up really well and we all loved it. It's amazing how darn CUTE that little Drew Barrymore was!
We also saw what I think is my favorite Tom Hanks movie, Road to Perdition. I think I'd seen in before but not all the way through. What a great, thoughtful movie! Paul Newman does a great turn as a truly evil villain, but our boy Tom--you have to be a gifted actor to turn such a bad guy into a sympathetic character.
I'm not going to spoil the ending here, but if you've seen it, here's the question I'm left with: was he redeemed at the end? And if he was, what does that say about his life? And if he wasn't, what does that say about God?
