Love Dogma and I did actually enjoy Evan Almighty


Sorry, I'll get my coat

Dogma is a great movie. I'm a big fan of Kevin Smith and grew up a few towns from him so I recognize all his locations (he films a lot in Monmouth County, NJ). My good friend lives in Red Bank in walking distance of his comic book store. I've spent a little time there.

  • Gladiator (they won't shut up about Elysium)
  • Mad Max: Fury Road (same, about Valhalla)
  • Fight Club (dude's wacky adventures with his imaginary friend, who starts a cult)
But no, other than that, I don't watch overly religious movies, anymore. I got pissed off about the prayer part in Gravity. It seems so stupid and unnecessary.

RE: Religious Movies You Still Watch
This is a bit of a stretch because it's hard to call it a religious movie, it's more of a movie about religious history.

Man For All Season's which is about Thomas More and his battles with the newly created Church of England.





Another movie I love is also about church history so it isn't really "religious" either. Becket. Mostly because I get to look at Peter O'toole's eyes and listen to Richard Burton's voice....and it's especially wonderful to listen to when Richard Burton declares a henchman of Henry II "excommunicate and anathema". It was filmed in some cathedral in England, don't know which one, but his voice is fabulous. I might consider going to church, maybe just one time, if Burton spoke from the pulpit. Jesus christ, that voice!




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I've never seen Becket but I LOVES me some Man For All Seasons. Smile

And they both make my top 10 movies of all time..

Good picks.


I still enjoy The Boondock Saints, but much more so for the eminently quotable dialogue, fun framing device, and a great scenery chewing performance by William Dafoe; than for any agreement with Catholic fueled vigilantism.

I need to ask my son if I can borrow this from him. I haven't watched it in a while...great movie.

RE: Religious Movies You Still Watch
One of the guys from Suscipe Domine who came over here for a while (sorry, can't think of his username) had a post over there once claiming that Life of Brian, Dogma, and The Last Temptation of Christ were the 3 most blasphemous movies ever made. I had never even heard of Dogma at that time, but I immediately went out and bought the DVD on his "recommendation".
