Forgot to mention... 

...over the weekend I also took the time to watch Dogma, for which I've had the video for several years.

(Yeah, yeah, I know. I just never get around to watching my videos. Or movies in general. Many people have taken me to task for this. Last week CuteNerdBoy tried to convince me to watch two videos a day, one at 5:30am and one after work, so that I can catch up with the rest of the movie-watching populace. My response: if I'm gonna be up at 5:30 in the morning it's to exercise, not watch movies. And the chances are pretty good I'm rarely getting up at 5:30am.)

Answer me one question: how on earth can Alan Rickman consistently be so absurdly hot? I swear, the man is sex on a stick. Never before had I come close to weeping for a character based on the fact that he had no penis. A crying shame for someone as magnetic as Rickman, even if it is just a character.

Oh, and the rest of the movie was pretty good, too. Ben Affleck didn't annoy me (too much), so that's saying something. But I have to say, I love Buddy Christ. If I was going to get all Christian and stuff (not bloody likely), I'd certainly pick him to be my representation of Our Lord and Savior. He's just such a happy guy!

Even better, though, is the script was obviously very well thought out. So much made me stop and think. I'm amazed that so many people objected to this movie. It may have been made with tongue firmly planted in cheek, but if ever there was a film that bespoke a love of faith, it's this one.

I may be five years too late, but I have to say: This is one rockin' religious flick, my friends.
