This week Corey and Ethan stumble upon one of the newest Netflix originals, which was also produced by This American Life, Come Sunday tells the true story of Carlton Pierson, a Pentecostal minister who begins to change his view on Hell. Can the movie change Corey and Ethan's view on whether or not movies with Christian themes can be objectively good? Check in to find out!
This week Corey and Ethan discuss Big Idea Productions' biggest movie and biggest flop, Jonah a Veggietales Movie, the film responsible for destroying everything you loved about Veggietales as a child and for bankrupting Big Idea. But what about the movie? It came out in 2003, so does it hold up? Well we take the right amount of time to discuss that, check it out!
This week Corey and Ethan are joined by our special guest, Jo, as we discuss the Christian movie with all the advertisements telling you it's actually good. And they're at least kinda right, Corey and Jo end up discussing the film while Ethan listens in to determine if it's worth his time.
This time Corey and Ethan get into real trouble when they step into the bizarre world of rock opera and musical theater. NBC released its newest live TV musical event, a musical depicting the life of Jesus Christ clearly missing the point that this is a musical not so much about the Jesus of Easter as the historical Jesus. But to do their duty they talk about it, and you may enjoy listening to it.
This week we break down 2015's War Room, a story detailing a family's struggle with an emotionally abusive and distant husband and father on the verge of an affair, a mother who isn't the woman she wants to be, and the sage-like old woman who knows the answer is putting the prayer back in schools. Do Corey and Ethan enjoy this movie? Check in to find out!
We've found it, the worst movie to date. How is it a Christian movie? Well, it's not. But it is a Sorboary bonus and so if he's in it there must be a connection, right? Maybe, anyway this week we talk about 2014's Alongside Night starring Kevin Sorbo and... well that's it. Brandi Maxx from Parks and Rec is in this for about 2 minutes, but that's the only other person you'll recognize. This movie is propaganda plain and simple, and it's Libertarian Propaganda which is even better.
This week we break down a classic of the bygone film genre known as "Chick Flicks," 2002's A Walk to Remember, one of the myriad of film adaptations of Nicholas Spark's demented stories. Walk tells the story of bad boy falling for church girl in a story that is all too familiar. We had intended this episode to be a double episode with another film included, but because we're cheap and didn't opt for the higher priced server option we could only share this part of the episode with you, but fear not listeners! The second part of this episode reviewing the Sorboary bonus will air next week.
As Sorboary wraps up we join up for our first live episode while we watch Kevin Sorbo's newest film in whcih he is the star, writer, director, and producer of the film, Let There Be Light, the movie that seeks to answer such questions as, "what happens when we die?" "Why does God give us cancer?" and of course, "how do we defeat ISIS?" Which the movie answers by giving us a nonanswer.
Corey and Ethan watch another stinker, 2016's Confessions of a Prodigal Son, a Kickstarter film that really feels like exactly that. Confessions tells the story of Sean, a college kid or the titular prodigal son of the story who doesn't ever really do anything worthy of being called prodigal. Do they like it? Is there anything redeemable in it? Well, it is Sorboary so I guess Kevin Sorbo is in it at least.
This week we're reviewing 2015's Joseph and Mary, a retelling of the Gospel birth narrative(s) which forgets to include the best parts of those narratives. Watching the film we find a highly sexist, really boring, and incredibly self-congratulatory Evangelical Christian film made in Canada. What's so bad about it? Well you'll have to listen to find out.
