Hollywood isn't generally known for popping out religious films, but in recent months (and periodically throughout the decades), they've become big box office and big business. In this lighthearted show, we look at religious films from the past century, from Cecil B. Demile fare to the recent "Son of God" and various non-Hollywood movies that have "blessed" theater screens with tales of divinity, tragedy and (almost inevitably) large amounts of cheese. If you've seen "The Ten Commandments," "The Passion of the Christ," or the recent (and some would say sacreligious) Aronofsky interpreation of the "Noah" story, bring your reviews and join us for an entertaining podcast.
