Welcome to a new segment of Misan[trope]y, called [God]Awful Movies!
There has been a bit of a boom as of recently with religious-themed movies in theaters, what with God’s Not Dead, Noah, Heaven is for Real, etc. (and in case you didn’t know, there is a high-budget remake of “Left Behind” in the pipeline, starring none other than Nic Cage). I intend to review some of these here for sure, but my primary focus is going to be on the more obscure features I come across (Mr. T and Corbin Bernsen’s Judgment, for instance). I’m also going to take aim at bad mythology-based movies (Hulk Hogan played Zeus once), sci-fi/religious hybrids (Legion, Constantine, Priest), and much more. Also, BibleMan. There is going to be a lot of BibleMan here.
In the meantime, enjoy this trailer for the upcoming God’s Not Dead knockoff (I hope that doesn’t become a regular thing), A Matter of Faith, which is due to come out in September.
You can read more about it on The Friendly Atheist.
One thought on “Introducing: (God)Awful Movies”
At least they didn’t portray the biology professor as being the combative type like Kevin Sorbo. He looks folksy and loveable in this trailer. Sure, the movie looks bad. I won’t see it unless I’m actively watching the 100 worst IMDB movies.
