Updated: Recently my Reel Faith cohost David DiCerto had a chance to sit down with Jim Caviezel and chat about his upcoming movie When the Game Stands Tall. Here’s their full interview. (Watch for the summer season finale of Reel Faith this week; here’s where and when. And check out the latest Reel Faith reviews below!)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (SDG)

Thanks to this film, I’ll be adding “Shrinking World Syndrome” to SDG’s Very, Very Little Movie Glossary. You know, how it turns out that the Joker killed Batman’s parents, Anakin Skywalker created C-3PO, and now April O’Neil is connected to the Turtles’ origins.

The Hundred-Foot Journey (SDG)

While I didn’t care for this movie as much as I hoped I would, I will say I went right from the theater to an Indian restaurant, where I got something I enjoyed more.

The Hundred-Foot Journey (DD)

Second opinion: David’s take on the film differs somewhat from mine.

Calvary (DD)

The director calls it “basically Bresson’s Diary of a Country Priest with a few gags thrown in.“ Here’s what David thought.

Guardians of the Galaxy (SDG)

Get On Up (SDG)

From the star of 42 and the director of The Help comes a film I enjoyed more than either of those.

Magic in the Moonlight (SDG)

Woody Allen’s latest, starring Colin Firth and Emma Stone, is like your uncle doing a card trick you’ve seen him do a hundred times. There’s no rabbit in the hat and no God in heaven. We know, Woody.
