"You are God's Tony Soprano."
Those were the words silently invading my consciousness by a commanding inner "voice" as I was on my knees, engaged in a nightly ritual of bedside prayer which, on that occasion and a few previous, included a petition for liberation from my Sopranos obsession. The year was 2004, or thereabouts, and the many hours I'd spent posting on the old Sopranoland forum during and after season 4 had probably quadrupled during the just-completed first runs of season 5. As my screen name suggests, Tony's psycho-spiritual redemption dominated my focus and interests. At times, I could hardly discipline my mind to think about anything else, and one part of me was seriously rebelling against the part ruled by the compulsion.
I was, afterall, 10 years out from a singularly momentous, life-changing encounter with the spirit of Christ, and my most consistent and earnest prayer in the years since was to acquire a Christ-like capacity for unconditional love so that I could be of greater, wider, and more genuine service in the world. However much I could acknowledge the depth and importance of the themes The Sopranos addressed, and however much the show stimulated captivating online conversations with a diverse and highly interesting group of people, the conventional-thinking, socially-conditioned aspect of me judged my constant preoccupation with a fictional mobster to be a waste of time and highly antithetical to my spiritual aspirations.
I'd been subject to consuming passions all my life, three of which predated my Sopranos obsession and rivaled or surpassed it in terms of intensity and longevity. The inextricable connection between the most notable of those (a lifelong love for Elton John's music) and my Christ encounter should have clued me in that passions aren't something to pray your way out of and are in fact the very engines that power your drive on the spiritual path. But I did not grasp that at the time, thus my prayer for deliverance.
This is the little girl from Pan's Labyrinth
Tell me, /tv/. Why didn't George Lucas sell Star Wars to WB? They have good writers and directors there.
Cynthia Stevenson has got to be the best at playing the mother character wouldn't you agree?
Steve Jobs was actually a well crafted movie.
>why is Kate Winslet so cute in this feature film?
I unironically thought until the end of the movie that Hertzfeld is played by that guy from Big Bang Theory. xDDD
Kate Winslet takes herself too seriously imo, in most of her roles. She's great, but a little something sounds off about her performances. Not sure what to call it, but it's like she lacks that spark of playful arrogant enthusiam, if that makes any sense. She's a plebeian's great actress, not a patrician's. I still love her though.
Loved the movie to. Probably my favorite of the year, thouugh I haven't seen Revenant and Eight.
Why is LOTR so much superior to Star Wars and will anyone ever beat the GOAT movie trilogy of all times???
Is this an accurate guide for upcoming capeshit, /tv/?
Why does it seem that over 90% of main characters in kid movies are girls now? What happened to male main characters in kids movies? This first became noticeable when literally all animated movies had girl leads, and Pixar has started to making girls the main characters in all their movies lately. This has even spread to movies geared towards a PG-13 crowd with the new Star Wars franchise being led by a female lead.
Why did he poof into nothingness when he died?
Why wasn't he naked as a ghost? Why didn't his clothes poof too?
