Every Atheist Does NOT Need: The Most Hated Woman In America

The Most Hated Woman in America

Jesus Christ on a John Deere, where do I begin with this torturous monstrosity of a movie? The best way I could describe it with any accuracy, is that it’s gotta feel a little bit like what waterboarding feels like, except you don’t feel like you’re drowning in water, rather, you feel like you’re drowning

Every Atheist Needs: The Red Pill

The Red Pill

I know I’m going to cop a lot of heat for this, but I would hope that if the headline already has you burning with rage, you might take a minute to calm down and then consider the possibility that I might have something reasonable to say on this topic. I spent a long time fighting

Every Atheist Needs: Spotlight

Spotlight

It’s not often I enjoy new movies these days. They are all sequels or prequels or remakes of remakes or some monopolization of previously successful franchises. There’s no creativity involved anymore, no original stories like Forrest Gump or Donnie Darko. Creative meetings go more or less like this: “Well, we made a lot of money off

Every Atheist Needs: Je Suis Charlie

Je suis Charlie

I never knew there was a dog present during the massacre at Charlie Hebdo last year. Lila, the cocker spaniel who came to work with her owner, Eric Portheault, looked on as the humans in her life fell one by one. Guided by instinct, she lay on Portheault’s face as he play dead on the

Every Atheist Needs: Kumaré

Kumaré

If you had the opportunity to make a lot of money and be madly revered by throngs of people, just by telling a few fibs, would you do it? Because you can, and it’s pretty easy. Vikram Gandhi set out to prove it with his documentary film, Kumaré, and even he was amazed at how

Every Atheist Needs: An Honest Liar

James Randi

We’re all familiar with James Randi. We’ve basked in the glory of his takedown of Peter Popoff and cheered when he made Uri Geller look foolish. We loved his daring escapes and perplexing magic tricks. We adore his reason and there is probably not a skeptic on Earth who hasn’t, during heated debate, referred to the Randi Foundation’s

An Analogy So Bad, You’ll Feel Like You’re Taking Crazy Pills

Crazy pills

Arguments for God and the sorts of things God likes are kinda like Will Ferrell movies for me. Most of the time I get some really great belly laughs out of them. Some, like Old School, are worthy of a rewatch and only get funnier with age. Others, like Night at the Roxbury, have become deep

Every Atheist Needs: God Loves Uganda

God Loves Uganda

This is probably one of the most heart-wrenching films I’ve ever watched. If you can get through it without shedding a tear, I applaud your commitment to stoicism… God Loves Uganda is a documentary film that was released in January 2013. The film follows the connection between evangelical Christianity in the US and Canada and the

Christ Flix : Why U No Stick To The Bible?

Well, that escalated quickly
