Funny and Fury in Equal Turns

This show is freaking hilarious and all three give incisive commentary about both filmmaking and religious nonsense in each movie (also commentary on physical appearances, easter eggs and how to make the movies even better--looking forward to the Crazy Billionaire remakes). It's important to note that some of these movies are so reprehensible that the reviews will infuriate you to a Noah-like level (not quite just-quit-cigarettes but definitely poor-sound-design level), but will provide the catharsis of working through why they're so wrong and the serious consequences of these religious ideas in the real world (and what can be done to combat them).

Simply the best

This show is consistently top notch. The amount of work that goes into each episode really shows. It makes me laugh every week, even when I’ve never heard of the movie being reviewed.

Jakeryder ,

Best podcasts have to offer.

Hilarious biting reviews of the worst that religious cinema has to offer. Show is best if you are able to sit through the awful movies they review first. (Not always possible). Might want to start at the beginning as there are many running gags.
