Father Augustus Tolton's life reads like a novel

Media Notebook: St. Francis on film
NEW YORK (CNS) — Among the many hundreds of canonized saints recognized by the Catholic Church, few if any enjoy the popularity of Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone, the man better known as St. Francis of Assisi. His intriguing life and enduring fame  won him the attention of Hollywood.

Brooklyn: a quieter story about the Irish
In the film "Brooklyn" (Fox Searchlight), set during the early 1950s, Eilis Lacey has relatively little to complain about. Her journey out of Ireland and reception in America go about as smoothly as can be imagined. In part because of the time period — decades after the main waves of European immigration and catalysts such as the Great Famine — her material circumstances on either side of the Atlantic are far from dire.

Merton library now at prison
A Thomas Merton library dedicated to Worcester Catholics and willed to a Trappist abbey has now been donated to a prison in Shirley, Mass. "He shares his own woundedness," said the president of the International Thomas Merton Society of the Trappist priest. "We all ache into holiness. ... That's why people read Merton. ... They discover a companion on the way. ... He was one of us."

Books claim resistance to pope's finance reform
Financial wrongdoing at the Vatican, leaked documents and arrests by the Vatican police may make it seem like 2012 all over again, but the situation — while serious — is not the breach of papal privacy that the earlier "VatiLeaks" scandal was.

Bond fights temptation in 'Spectre'
NEW YORK — A car chase through St. Peter's Square and a flippant joke about joining the priesthood aside, the 24th James Bond film, "Spectre" (Columbia), has predictably little to do with religion. Yet director Sam Mendes' follow-up to "Skyfall," his 2012 reboot of the 007 series, does set its protagonist on an upward ethical path that will please faithful grown-ups.

'Burnt' falls a little flat

NEW YORK — Can't get enough of TV cooking star Gordon Ramsay's trademark rages and rants? Their fictional equivalent is as close as your nearest multiplex, courtesy of the ego-driven culinary drama "Burnt" (Weinstein).

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse not worth the view

NEW YORK — Whatever its other defects — and they are legion — the blood-soaked horror spoof "Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse" (Paramount) does at least boast an accurate and descriptive title.

The Peanuts Movie continues fine tradition of Schulz

NEW YORK — Anyone familiar with the perennial TV special "A Charlie Brown Christmas" will know that the "Peanuts" franchise, which began life as a comic strip penned by cartoonist Charles M. Schulz between 1950 and 2000, has a knack for unabashed but also un-bashing spirituality.

Irish-born actress Maureen O'Hara dies; was icon of golden age of movies

Jewish author writes parables
"Short Stories by Jesus," Amy-Jill Levine's new book, reaches far back in time to listen "to the Jewish Jesus talking to fellow Jews" as he tells his many parables. Believers over time domesticated the parables, ridding them considerably of their power to disturb and to surprise, Levine believes. Her goal is to show "what happens when we strip away 2,000 years of usually benevolent and well-intended domestication to hear a parable as a first-century short story spoken by a Jew to other Jews."

Goosebumps a mildly scary Halloween adventure

NEW YORK — As ideas for Halloween-themed movies go, a big-screen version of the blockbuster children's book series "Goosebumps" (Columbia) is better than many. Not only do author R.L. Stine's numerous volumes have what might conservatively be called a proven commercial track record -- 400 million fright fans can't be wrong -- they also trade in the more innocent aspects of the genre.

99 Homes - Trenchant and didactic

NEW YORK — Trenchant, didactic and unflinching, "99 Homes" (Broad Green) also is an example of profoundly moral filmmaking.

Out of everybody else's league

This delightful retrospective, written by Jon Morris, features a cavalcade of ill-conceived figures from comic book history. Killjoy, The Ferret, Thunderbunny, Dr. Hormone and dozens of other crime-fighting also-rans are represented here. Though Morris' well-researched volume includes some mild scenes of combat, there's no other content of concern to parents. Even so, his sharp, insightful narrative does deal with concepts -- like the influence of philosopher and novelist Ayn Rand's political ideas -- that would likely confuse children. Stylized images of violence. The Catholic News Service classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. Not otherwise rated.

Panning 'Pan': a movie to skip

Unsuitable even for adults, this perilous cinematic journey -- part run-of-the-mill theme ride, part wishful, willful ego trip -- is certainly not safe for children.  The film contains mean-spirited anti-Catholicism, a negative view of religion in general, brief sacrilegious and scatological humor, much stylized violence and a few mild oaths. The Catholic News Service classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.

Documentary film on Merton reveals Trappist's life
Morgan Atkinson's new documentary on Thomas Merton, the famed Trappist monk from the Cistercian abbey in Gethsemani, Kentucky, was "40 years in the making," he joked.

Actually, it was closer to two, but it was Atkinson's own pilgrimage to Gethsemani 40 years ago that not only broadened his exposure to Merton, but led him to become a Catholic himself.

He is hopeful the new documentary, "The Many Storeys and Last Days of Thomas Merton," will likewise get a PBS time slot sometime this year, the centennial of the monk's birth.

Art, architecture lead us to prayer

Msgr. Timothy Verdon, author of "Art & Prayer," presents great works of art capable of evoking creative responses to the divine. The beauty of the works spurs the heart to praise God, as does the splendor found in nature. Images and architecture, he writes, can teach us and lead us to prayer as do the Scriptures, acting as "stimuli" to encounter God's presence as a feast.
