Can you convert that to inches?
Why do you care so much about this particular brand of nonsense?
Bad writing, false controversy, bad acting, old tired and cliched story lines, and these episodes are probably the easiest to write. A bunch of people acting like they are being persecuted because we don't live in a theocracy, that's entertaining!
This movie would make more sense if the hero was Cüneyt Arkin fist fighting Fred Williamson to decide whether to put Santa or a polar bear on coke products for Christmas
Because this is the only kind of nonsense exploitation movie that people actually take seriously.
Beyond the chintzy execution of such nonsense, multiple signs over the years allude to some quite personal situation(s?) of Brad's (and/or a loved one?) that keeps his apparent rage boner rock hard in perpetuity against this lame brand of "Christianity" and its proponents. During those moments when he seems to be at his most sincere regarding all of this contempt, it reeks of Freudian projection and reminds me of the main character Brad Dourif played (some odd name like Motes?) in that old movie called Wise Blood. More than anything at this point, I feel sad for him. And at this rate, I expect him within the next five years or so to have most of his new material consisting of random activities sponsored directly by irreligious activist organizations.
Nope. They're just bad movies, and part of why they're bad is that they're just as insulting towards Christianity as they are anything else. While I'm not necessarily a religious person, I'm not an atheist, and I come from a large family of Christians who are wonderful people, as are my religious friends (many of whom worked on Jesus Bro). Also, there's been Christian movies that we've recommended on the site (Captive, Risen).
13:30: That's a helluva lot more believable than that Three Wise Men bullshit.
Nice Grinch onesie! Both Karloff and Carrey would be very proud of you!
Looking at the thumbnail I thought the Snob was bustin' out his Walter White costume.
LOFL. A Walter White Christmas movie. I'd watch it
LOL bitter much?
Happy Holidays, Mr. Snob
Didn't Brad tell you to stop doing that?
Say something productive. Like, "Oh man, who asked for a evangelical Christian Sons of Anarchy movie?"
Am I missing something, but what the fuck does that even mean?
I'm not religious but I like all the angels and Jesus stuff at Christmas.Catholics and proper Anglicans do it best. You need the pomp and ceremony. The problem with the Christians in these sorts of films is they're a political entity that pushes a weird mixture of moralising and supply side economics. It's a wing nut thing. When you think about it Home Alone 2 actually more Christian in the traditional sense movie because it comes complete with miracles, heavenly choirs, guardian angels and a feel good uplifting resolution.
It's also a better movie.
It goes without saying. This one is, like. Christmas, Fuck Yeah coming again to save the motherfucking Jesus..
This was the first Christian movie I ever saw. Some friends and I threw a drunken party just to screen it.
It was a night of true hilarity!
First thing I watched when I got home from work today. I loved this one especially due to the scenes where you step out of character to PROVE just how much of any of the BS this movie is pushing is, indeed, BS!!! . . . . On the funny side, the Space Alien Nativity show reminded me of the South Park episode that first showed Mr. Hanky and Phillip Glass was doing the stage music for the non traditional, non religious, uhhhhh, stage production that's supposed to celebrate whatever you're celebrating during whatever name you wish to call the season it takes place in.
If only these Christians who feel "persecuted" (instead of actual persecution where you are killed for your beliefs) could gather in a safe place and form groups, sing songs, read the bible, and celebrate the Christmas holiday however they saw fit. If there were some kind of places like that, maybe there wouldn't be a need to insist on overtly religious songs and plays in schools, and nativity scenes on government property; these "persecuted" Christians could do those happy Christmas things at these special places and everyone could be happy and live their own lives. Too bad I'm not aware of any of these "persecuted" Christian safe places.
They should go to the fuckin' middle east if they want to see persecution of religion. Say Merry Christmas there and get your ass literally shot off.
May I make a request that if more Christian films are to be Snobbed that they be the really whacked out kind? Like tribulation stuff. Like the one with Gary Busey called, uncreatively enough, Tribulation?Or one of several like-minded movies with Corbin Bernsen?
Yay! It's that rare episode where I've actually seen the movie.
Marshall Teague, what the hell are you doing? You were freaking Ta'Lon, man! Why?
I rip this exploitative piece of trash a new one on Amazon:
Insert speil about how Christmas was originally a pagan holiday blah blah blah blah.
That space nativity play might've been good, but it has NOTHING on Satan's Alley!
This is definitely a Snob Hall Of Shame movie right here. Holy fuck, and I thought Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas was bottom of the barrel.
I have to say, I appreciated you taking a moment, at least twice, to show directly how much BS this movie was trying to throw up at us.
You can convert that to inches?
Holy shit, Brad, this is your best video in ages. I like all your content, but this is great. Merry Non-denominational Holiday to you, buddy. Thanks for all of your hard work.
Is the Grinch onesie appearing in Jesus, Bro?
My, my, you're a mean one Mr. Snob, the movie is obviously so poorly written that is not even fit to be on a TV christmas marathon but in the end of the day is harmless, I rather watch this movie than some of the other christian movies you reviewed, but then again that is a choice like drinking my own urine on the rocks or pure.
And just to mention, you can't fool me, Brad you can't be from Springfield, you isn't nearly as yellow as you should be and your eyes surely isn't bloated enough, shame on you, buddy... ¯(⇀‸↼)/¯
Wow.. just fucking wow. Twinkle lights really mean a lot to the people who made this movie, huh?
Great episode and love the Grinch suit!
Hey Brad you should do a review on the Mighty Mufifn Pounder Rangers. I bet you could make this hilarious.
Why can't this school play just do The Gallows like everyone else?
Bradley, this review of Jesus Bro was fantastic. It has higher production values than any other movie you've ever made. I can't believe you got THE Fred Williamson to act in it!
It is important to note that in some countries Christians are beheaded. But it is even more important that we bring the perpetrators into this country as refugees.
But that doesn't matter right now since it's the holidays. I need buy a holiday tree, put some holiday lights on my house, purchase holiday presents, light my holiday candelabra, and eat my holiday ham. Afterwards, I shall eat holiday cookies.
That's it. I've taken your right wing horseshit long enough. Take your xenophobia and stick it up your nether-regions. Find somewhere else to post your inanity.
Snob: great job on this one, though I had to mute whatever parts you weren't speaking because I can't take these "people's" persecution complex anymore.
Great review :D
btw I've just seen a very, very strange horror, "Eyes of a Warewolf". I think it may be a good candidate for an episode "Shot on Shiteo" :) I know that Cinema Snob is very busy, but maybe ;) If anyone needs a link just ask.
More of a good debunking then a review.
First they made it illegal for white people to sit in the front of the bus, then they made it illegal for straight people to get married, and now they are coming for the Christians.
i am a Christian who wants to thank you for pointing out the fear pandering bullshit that these particular movies focus on. They take away the true meaning of the religion and replace it with some psuedo religious, republican rhetoric that has more to do with hypocracy than the actual belief of forgiveness and community.
Personally, I don't have a problem with someone wishing me a merry/happy holiday-I-don't-celebrate, regardless of when on the calander that is (it's the though of goodwill that counts) and I apply the same in reverse.
(Granted, rare is the day I want to wish any part of humanity much more than a sudden choking death, but that's besides the point.)
For years, my bus route to town me through a portion of the city was that is predominatly Asian, and it was done up with Divali decorations and lights in addition to the Christmas ones in the centre of town (albiet slightly earlier, obviously). This is the sort of thing I'd much rather see*; don't fight over the slices of cake, make a larger cake.
*It quite annoyed me that the council said it wasn't going to do it this year. But considering our council is probably one of the worst excrement stains in the country, this is pretty minor dickery on their part, considering all the other things of far more importance to everyone (regardless of faith or lack thereof) they have dumped on.
