The sequel, FAT MAN, will follow a sweetly retarded obese black manchild (adopted by a white family), as he looks to Jesus to burn his tormentors to the ground.

SO GLAD that God took the side of the Allies.
So I'm gonna guess he asks Jesus for an end to the war and Jesus gives him the A-Bomb?
I'm also bummed that Michael Rappaport is in this. I like him.
The kid wishes his dad back so hard. it nukes Hiroshima. Seriously.
Needs a sequel titled Fat Man. It'll be about a man who was too fat to join the service, so he wishes the war over so people will stop making fun of him
Then there's the third film, ENOLA GAY, which is about a guy who wants to join the Marines, but he can't, because he's too... well, you know.
This is all leading up to the fourth film, in which Little Boy, Fat Man, and Enola Gay team up, and, using Enola Gay's magical flying drag-queen fairy jet, travel to Japan to put a stop to those sneaky yellow fuckers once and for all.

I dunno, Bella was pretty good actually, as far as airplane movies go. Nevermind I won't watch this.
I remember when I was boners for Emily Watson in Breaking the Waves. That seems like forever ago.
|Binro the Heretic |
Well, that's what "the greatest generation" really believed.
From "Breaking The Waves" to this...

I'm going to point out the obvious and say that if this really happened, that kid would be instantly destroyed by the government. And rightfully so, I might add.
Mute Left, watch Left.
I assume they also burn him at the stake at some point.

NO! you just have to convince him that you getting a new car will bring his dad back home safe from the war.
So it's a story that personifies the Hiroshima bomb as an actual little boy who uses the power of faith and love to end the second world war (by incinerating a city and the hundred thousand or so mostly civilians within it.)
That is genuinely offensive. I'm sort of impressed.
Wasn't the combined death and injury toll from Hiroshima 500,000?
Somewhere in that range, yes. It's not clear how many people were killed or injured by the bomb because it's not clear how many people were actually in Hiroshima at the time.
The city was being used as a kind of refuge because it was one of the only large cities in Japan that had not been bombed in the last year, which lead many people to believe it was either lucky or being deliberately spared by the Americans. Hence, the city was packed with refugees and children who had been sent to stay with relatives.
The Hiroshima bombing is a complex issue. The American government has always argued that it saved lives versus any other alternatives, which may be true. But it was still the deliberate targeting of a civilian population center with a WMD, and no end will ever unambiguously justify those means. Reducing the entire story allegorically to a child using magic to bring his dad back is extremely reductionist.
Religious zealots are so dumb they don't even know when they make a sacrilegious movie.
Wait. So this kid is actually magic? I'd kind of figured it would be the kind of thing where it turned out they lived close to a testing range. So all the earthquake stuff and mountain moving was just a coincidence, and every one has to come to terms with the fact that faith isn't the same as magic (or is it?).
But, are they actually playing all this straight? This is a literal magic nuke kid?
God I hope so. Then he wishes everyone into the corn field, and we all live under his terrible reign forever.
No lie, this sounds like it's going to be awesome. Maybe not for the reasons the director intended, but awesome none the less.
Does he really destroy Hiroshima? Like, for realsies, in the movie? Because I've been skimming through various reviews on IMDB, RottenTomatoes, and some random Christian blogs, and everyone's review (positive or negative) seems to be focused on stuff like "faith" and "sentimentality". I would think, if this is a movie about a mass-murdering psychic kid who levels entire cities because he misses his dad, THAT would be the thing on everyone's mind. Not, oh, this film is really heartwarming/ too sappy and heavyhanded.
It is said the antiChrist will be appealing to all except those who recognize him for what he is. He will seem to be a uniquely fine and noble kingly man with all the answers but will have a dark and sinister heart whose only interest is to steal, kill and destroy [John 10:10]. That is a good "metaphor" for this, yet another installment in the Harry Potter thief of minds and hearts -- and maybe souls of they who do not recognize it for what it is. To say to your kids (or yourself) "It's all fantasy" just might not be enough. A bad influence [1 Cor. 15:33] does not have to be real to influence badly. Besides, there comes in the lives of many children a time when your words become no more than that ... words.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has one of the finest packages I have seen in film. It presents outstanding organization, intense imagery, wondrous technical achievements and ingenious creativity. It is truly a painstaking work of art. But it is dark art with a dark and sinister heart. It has many lures to confound and confuse the inexperienced and uninformed. [Eph. 4:14] It glorifies the practice of witchcraft and sorcery by presenting them not only as a goal of youth but as a noble behavior. This film has great power to desensitize many into accepting that using witchcraft and sorcery for "good" is noble while God says otherwise [Isa. 5:20]. It is not the user of magic nor the use of it which determines its holiness or unholiness. The source of the power determines its holiness ... or UNholiness. The manner of magic portrayed in this film is not from God. The only place God appears in the script is the use of His name in vain. Jesus does not appear at all even though the story involves Christmas.
A word on "magic." Our Director - Child Psychology Support, a practicing clinical psychologist and licensed school counselor has this to say about "magic" in and as entertainment: "Kids who revere Harry can't help to notice their own impotence by comparison, and yearn for the antidote that having "magical powers" would provide." Such dissonance can cause and has caused children to not only have unclean thoughts but to dabble and experiment with dark evil matters. If Jesus had thrown Himself off the pinnacle at Satan's tease would the angels in Matt. 4:5-6, who would have lifted Him up from being dashed on the rocks, have sinned with their "magic?" Did Jesus sin as He used His "magic" to cast out demons, heal the sick, raise the dead, make the blind see and the lame walk? There is a great deal of difference between the "magic" of witchcraft and sorcery and "magic" from God. Angels and angel-possessed people use holy power from God. Witches, wizards , sorcerers. etc. use power from Satan which makes it unholy, even if it is called "white magic." Again, the source of the power determines the holiness or unholiness of it, not the user or the use. And to practice, experiment with, dabble in or even embrace unholy magic (or "magik" to some) is sinful. [Deut. 18:10 - 11, Rev. 21:8]

Can there be more than one Antichrist? Aren't there supposed to be several? Because I'm pretty sure the writing teams of Two and Half Men and Big Bang Theory should be on the list.
No surprise, Glenn Beck loves this movie.
