The Gospel Isn’t Clickbait: On the Exploitation of Chris Pratt and Christ

Cynical “Christian” clickbait sites like the Conservative Tribune, Right Wing News, and any of their ilk are as bad as anything on the internet. They troll the internet and pop culture for things that people are into, and then force a supposedly right-wing, “Christian” perspective onto them just for clicks.

Fury Is Hell, And It’s Perfect

[spoilers throughout] War is hell and Fury is hell to watch. And that’s why it’s perfect. In no way is Fury fun to watch, it’s not entertaining, it’s not inspiring, it’s not uplifting.

The Dallas Cowboys are Adam Sandler

The Dallas Cowboys and Adam Sandler have a lot in common. I realized that last night after watching the Cowboys blow another season and then changing the channel to end up on “Grown Ups”. The similarities between the two are astounding. Both had their heyday in the 1990’s. The Cowboys won three Super Bowls, SandlerContinue reading “The Dallas Cowboys are Adam Sandler”

Refusing to Play Tarantino’s Vengeance Game

(Spoilers throughout. Don’t read unless you have seen it. Feedback welcome in the comments or on Facebook.) The thing with Tarantino movies is that they expect you to play along with Quentin Tarantino’s games. His eccentricities make movies interesting and makes his fans love him.
