Independence Day

Blockbusters Reviewed

This week is America’s Independence Day, the 243rd anniversary of when the United States’ declared their independence from Great Britain.  Welcome to the 11th edition of My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts.  Last fortnight I reviewed Noah (2014).  In honour of the US’ 4th of July, this fortnight I’m reviewing:

  • Independence Day (1996), rated PG for medium level violence, low level coarse language
  • Independence Day: Resurgence (2016), rated M for science fiction themes and violence

Those are the Australian ratings; in the United States, they’re rated:

  • Independence Day – PG-13 for sci-fi destruction and violence
  • Resurgence – PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action and destruction, and for some language

As usual, I’ll include the trailers and clips at the end of the review.  And as usual, the disclaimer is given.

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD.  PROCEED AT OWN RISK.

Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 3

J-M's History Corner

The next installment of my Restored English Translation (RET): Beresheet (Genesis) chapter 3.  As usual, it contains the Aleph Tav and the Hebrew names and a glossary for the Hebrew names.  Nothing much else to make a commentary out of, apart from an observation about the serpent who tempted Chavah (Eve).  Notice verse 14: “And YEHOVAH ELOHIM said to the serpent, ‘Because you have done this, you are cursed above all beasts, and above every animal of the field. On your belly you shall go, and you will eat dust all the days of your life.” (RET)  So, despite popular portrayals, the snake originally had legs, and would have looked just like a lizard.  (The 1966 movie The Bible: In the Beginning… correctly portrayed the snake as having originally had legs, and shows it losing them when YAH cursed it.)

CHAPTER 3
