Kresta in the Afternoon – November 11, 2010 – Hour 2

  • Description:


    First Topic – Fr. Vincent Capodanno – The Grunt Padre

    On this Veteran’s Day, we take a look at an extraordinary Navy Chaplain - Fr. Vincent Capodanno – who gave his life ministering to his men in Vietnam. It is a heartwarming and gripping story told no better than by Judy McCloskey, petitioner for the Cause of Fr. Capodanno. She joins us.

    Second Topic – Megamind / Derailed

    Megamind is a satiric take on the Superman mythos, seen through the eyes of a supervillain who’s part Lex Luthor, part Brainiac. Instead of a rocket ship bearing an infant survivor from a doomed planet to Earth, there are two ships from two planets. Fate deals the infant survivors very different hands: One is a super-powered golden boy who grows up privileged and smugly superior; the other grows up on the fringes of society, an outcast with one asset: his super-brain. It seems the two are destined to battle each other forever … or are they? We take a look at the film that is #1 at the box office this week with Steven Greydanus. He also gives us a sneak peek at the new Denzel Washington thriller Derailed.
