Being an atheist and stupid cunts on the tele.
Anyone else find movies or tv shows completely ruined by the directors slipping religion in there and making the whole thing a metaphor for religion and great Korean Jesus is?

Like, you're sitting there enjoying a good movie or tv show and than a scene comes on and it's about the main character getting all touchy feely over a fucking bible and it immediately ruins the movie.

It's like if you were enjoying a nice big juice piece of mud cake and suddenly you bit into a big clog of unmixed baking powder.


Perfect example. The Man in the High Castle.
A show on Amazon Prime about an alternative reality where the Nazi's and Japs won the second world war and split up the US. The concept is fantastic, it sounds like it's right up my alley as shit I'd watch. Watch the first episode, all is promising.
Second episode.. big fat glob of baking soda. They're trying to say that the bible's been banned and the main character is amazed to see a dude reading one and they talk about the bible and blah blah and they try to claim that the Nazi's are Atheists.
Ruined. Whole show ruined. I downloaded the first 10 episodes, I gotta delete them now.

Whoever made this show is an idiot.


It's not just atheism though. Often it happens to me with gay shit too where the movies going fine and half way through it turns into a propaganda for gay rights. Looking at you The Imitation Game...
Why everything gotta be about gay rights now? Every show or movie seems to just HAVE to have a gay character of some sorts. Like Fear of the Walking Dead, Strand is gay. Why?? Why is Strand gay? His character does not fit being gay.

I'm all for this more accepting of gayness, but really? you don't need to force it into everything and over highlight the fact you have a gay character or a gay couple.
It's off putting and ruins a good movie or tv show half the time.

If the straight couples aren't being highlighted as being incredible heterosexual, why are the gays being highlighted as being incredible gay?

At work.

Was kind of looking forward to Man in high castle.

Have a freind who'se raved about the book for years. That they actually, effectivly gloss over the RC church's tacit approval of those God fearig/accepting Nazis against the Godless Comunists?

Sigh Sad

RE: Being an atheist and stupid cunts on the tele.
I totally agree on the High Castle thing.

I loved the idea and premise, the execution was just meh. I found myself halfway through the first season not caring who the man was.

Not enough anyway to finish the season.

The gay thing too is really becoming weird to me.

I don't like seeing heterosexual couples faking sex and sucking face, unless it's porn

In regular tv shows just give me a good story.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Incredible Gay - they should make that into a superhero movie

I notice foreign religious things in movies and TV right away, and yes, it totally ruins the moment. I also get annoyed with Christian values disguised as secular ideas. The one that gets under my skin the most is this idea that "trying" and "giving it your all" (we're all fall short of the glory of Jesus) is somehow as worthy as actual success and acheivement. Another one that drives me crazy is the value of giving presents, which I invariably see around Christmas time.

I got half way through the first episode. It made no sense.

I dislike alternate histories. History itself is interesting enough.

I did enjoy Marco Polo. Sadly they made one season.

I loved his book.

All the fucking time. I hate getting into a TV show or movie where the empathetic characters portray compassion and fuck it up with mentioning God. It fucking pisses me off because it assumes anyone who doesn't believe cant understand empathy or compassion.

That's what really pissed me off about it.
They were trying to push across the idea that Nazi's are atheists and thus by association, atheism is morally wrong. It's fucking offensive. I don't get offended easily but to imply that because of my lack of religion I am the equivalent of a nazi, you can go fuck yourself with a rusty lead pipe. I didn't kill 6 million Jews. I didn't stand by and let it happen. Nazi's did, who were religious I might add. And the Pope stood by as it happened.

Banjo! They made 2 seasons! Go watch that shit son.
That show was very good.

Right! It's always main character is on some level religious and the troubled character, like some sort of drug addict is all "I don't believe in God blah blah".
And than the troubled character finds god and is all happy and omg I wanna throw up.

Even when they have like scientists in a movie they at some point have to make those scientists mention God, like "God save us" or "we shouldn't have played God" or whatever the fuck shit.
