My first movie post so far. The links are not mine I got them in an e-mail so I decided to put them to good use. There are only 4 rapidshare parts so it should be a quick download.
CERTAINLY NOT THE BEST BUT POSSIBLY THE FUNNIEST RELIGION DOCUMENTARY EVER
MY SHORT REVIEW:
Bill Maher brings a fresh and direct attack on religion as a whole in this amazingly entertaining documentary. There are a number of movies and video lectures that are far more serious, important and fact driven than "Religuous" but some moments from this movie simply must be seen as they completely unravel the ENORMOUS amount of PURE bullshit some people can say in front of a camera and then stick to that. I'll post a big post about some critical documentary movies filled with recommendations and links to torrents and stuff soon so stay tuned.
Someone wrote a nice and short critique at imdb about this movie and I agree with it completely so you should read it below.
SHORT REVIEW FROM IMDB:
Author: ctg0724 from United States
Two things about this film took away a star. One was that Bill Maher spent so much time with the ones he tried to make look bad that he didn't meet with enough experts who could further the points he was making. The second problem is that the people he interviewed could have easily made fools of themselves without him cutting them off and lecturing them. That being said, let's get to the good points.
For one thing, he makes it so clear how illogical the mass amount of people can be. He exposes phony beliefs and shows how they can become very protective against his film crew. The film stock they put into use is done masterfully. Plenty of laugh out loud moments (particularly the image of Jesus as a teenager, you will see). My word must be taken as truth when I say that the final part of the film MUST be seen. This isn't just about cracking jokes on faith. This film is about the human race taking responsibility of itself and stopping the damage it has been doing for far too long.
