Watch THE HAND OF GOD (2021) 1


The Hand of God is an incredibly personal and reflective film. It feels very poignant at points while tackling the themes of loss and growing up, while also celebrating the small things like watching football with your family and meals. Which pretty much sums up life in general.

God gives each of us what He knows we can handle. Although His decisions may not always seem fair to us, we should remember that He does not make mistakes. He knows what He is doing, and we should trust Him in that.


Argentina legend Maradona equalised against England at the 1986 World Cup with his hand before going on to score the "goal of the century" to send his country through. Maradona said the first goal was made "a little with the head of Maradona, and a little with the hand of God".


Netflix has tons of great titles on its platform, but pinning down the best Netflix movies is a no small feat. With the streamer bursting with worth-watching films, how do you go about picking something to tune into ahead of your next chill-out sesh on the sofa? Well, that's where we come in.


"When I pitched this story, I said it is of a piece with The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth. I said it is not made for children," del Toro told Total Film. "But children can watch it if their parents speak to them. I would not fool myself on say Pan's Labyrinth is a kid's movie, but this one can be watched by kids. It's not pasteurized, it's not homogenized, and it's not immune to dialogue in the family." The cast includes the voice talent of Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Gregory Mann, Tilda Swinton, and Cate Blanchett.


It's lengthy at 182 minutes, but RRR doesn't waste a second, cramming in everything from fiery bow and arrow battles and motorcycle chases to men fighting alongside bloodied tigers. If none of that tickles your fancy, firstly, what more do you want? Secondly, fear not, it also features a romantic subplot, a sweet bromance, and a couple of musical numbers, too. All of which culminates in making this one of the best Netflix movies you can watch right now.


You don't necessarily think of Adam Sandler when you picture the best Netflix movies. And yet, here Hustle stands as one of the best Netflix originals available to watch. And this one's more uplifting than Uncut Gems (removed from this list after leaving the streaming service).


The film co-stars Shia LaBeouf, and is directed by Kornél Mundruczó. Not one to be watched lightly, especially with an almost 30-minute long, one-take birth scene. Kirby, throughout, gives a stunning performance, which has earned her an Oscar nomination. And quite rightly.


Its bold and inventive storyline, great action, and eye-popping visuals make this a delightful movie. Also, who needs an excuse to watch anything with Tilda Swinton in it? Plus, its Bong Joon-ho... you know you're in good hands when this Oscar-winning director's on board.


What happened? That's the question this wholesome movie about faith attempts to answer, painting a pleasant portrait of two men at odds coming to an understanding. Even if you're not religious, The Two Popes makes for a light watch that's enhanced drastically by two incredible central performances: Jonathan Pryce as Pope Francis and Anthony Hopkins as Pope Benedict. They were both rightly nominated for Oscars.


The final price surpasses both the previous record for a match-worn jersey, which was the $5.64 million paid in 2019 on Babe Ruth's 1928-1930 New York Yankees jersey, and the record price for a piece of sports memorabilia, which stood at $8.8 million for the original hand-drawn Olympic manifesto that was sold in 2019 in New York.


Maradona wore the shirt in a quarterfinal against England in 1986 in which he scored both of Argentina's goals in their 2-1 win. The first was the famous "Hand of God" goal where he palmed the ball past England goalkeeper Peter Shilton. Maradona, who died in November 2020, had said the goal was "a little from the head of Maradona, and a little with the hand of God."


For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.


Now, with the World Cup days away, the Gulf country is expecting the arrival of more than a million fans. And billions more will tune in to watch the tournament's 64 games. Yet the controversies have not subsided.


Having seen four of Paolo Sorrentino's movies now, I have finally and regrettably seen enough to admit that I am not a fan of his work. For some reasons, his movies don't engage me enough emotionally to care. Le conseguenze dell'amore (The Consequences of Love) was an interesting look into the life of a man with a dark secret, but I believed that it would have worked better as a character study if the revelation at the end had come earlier in the movie. I liked Youth better, a modest and entertaining contemplation of ageing, even though as a 40-something, it didn't fully move me either.His celebrated La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty) was voted Best Movie of the Year by many, but it left me puzzled, as I saw little more than short vignettes about Roman life without much of an overall encompassing idea, story thread or theme. I watched it again to make sure that I didn't miss anything, but my response was largely the same: lots of eye candy with little nutritional value for the mind. And that is probably no coincidence, because I have the same problems and more with The Hand of God.I know that Sorrentino's work is quite beloved and that many people probably enjoyed or will enjoy this film as a lovingly disarming portrait of family and tragedy, wrapped around a coming-of-age story. Good for them, because what I unfortunately saw again was a too loosely connected series of scenes that emotion-wise go all over the place, and felt more like numerous short films tacked together than a sincere chronicle. It took me almost half the movie to get a grip on the many family members who Sorrentino loves to present with all their peculiarities, but most of these characters are merely one-dimensional charicatures with a social or physical handicap who don't get the screen time needed to get emotionally invested in them. This would have been okay if this had been a broad comedy or even a crude farce about a dysfunctional family, but I simply didn't find it that funny. Although some scenes elicited a smile, none of them are exactly laugh out loud, and since they didn't really connect or reinforced one another, I saw little progress in the story.When the big plot development happens in the second half, things started to look more promising for a while. But even here, Sorrentino barely uses the plot elements at his disposal to pull at some heartstrings. Every time something seems ready to be fleshed out, we cut to a completely different scene where we can enjoy the great locations and photography or another weird character, but instead of depth, it adds yet another new shade to a canvas that is already full of a wide variety of colored spots. I failed to see a bigger picture, to my regret.Sorrentino is clearly more of a moodpainter than a good storyteller, and that is apparently what a lot of viewers love about his movies. I remember the most famous scene from Youth where Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel watch in dumbstruck awe as a beautiful young and naked woman enters their swimming pool, and Hand of God has a similar scene with Aunt Patrizia that elicits a similar mix of sensations, somewhere between awkwardness and lustful ecstasy. So for those who also loved La Grande Bellezza for its colorful mix of emotions and sensations, go and watch it. For the rest, I would recommend the Italian classic Cinema Paradiso, a deeply moving coming of age story that did work for me, or even Disney's Encanto for a truly funny and heartwarming story about dysfunctional families.


Hand of God - the international title. For fans of football (or soccer as Americans like to call it) something that may sound quite familiar. Nowadays with VAR technology this would not have been able to stand ... but in the 80s one of the best players to ever grace the field and play the game ... used his hand to score a goal.The movie has this incident in it - but our main character is a boy. And while I did not read up on how the story was inspired, I think it is quite obvious this is a very personal movie. And one that really digs into life experience. This also leads the movie to feel as if it is random - or certain events follow each other and others come out of nowhere.Having said that, it still makes this a really intriguing watch. There is life and drama - which also involves a bit of nudity and sexual tension and situations. It also has at least one scene that will make some people cringe. It is not graphic, but what is being done to the boy ... or what he is ... well not forced, but made to do ... he likes it I reckon, but ... well I can see that at least a few people will have issues with the scene. Or the general vibe too.An interesting movie, certainly not everyones cup of tea ... but one that will excite those who like their drama to be spicy and a bit weird.


Could there be a more timely uncovering of Scripture? In the midst of chaos, falsehood, and destruction, God so graciously reminds the world of His righteousness and goodness. God, by the hands of Israeli archaeologists, divinely digs up His own words. He dusts them off and pieces them together again for the reader. Is it not true that so many have left Zechariah (and other divinely inspired authors) to be covered in dust and shambles for so long?


An uncharacteristically adult adaptation of the book trilogy by R.L. Stine (the guy who wrote Goosebumps), Fear Street has quickly become one of the best things to watch on Netflix right now. Anyone who enjoyed Stranger Things should take to this immediately, with the first movie (Fear Street Part 1: 1994) following a group of teens who uncover secrets that have been haunting their town for generations. 041b061a72
