Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas – Cinema Snob

In order for Christmas to be saved, you need to make a movie that’s so bad it instantly appears on the imdb bottom 100.

About thecinemasnob

I thought this was a re-post of the midnight screeings – until I suddenly joyfully realised it was the Snob! Brad, I see you are definately still on a mission to share this special piece of cinema with as many people as possible, Kirk Cameron would be so proud to know how much it’s affected you.

If you are going to be reviewing insane Christian movies (and I’m all for that) can I suggest “Last Ounce of Courage”
It’s makes “God’s Not Dead” look like “Citizen Kane”

What did I just watch Kirk Cameron saving Christmas is an inappropriate title it should have been Kirk cameoron the movie since he’s in the thing so freakin much and he got top billing out of all the actors. Seriously though like the review and you should do a clip less review(especially since we could see more of Sarah,Brian,Dave and the rest of the team snob crew in it).

Btw next week you said you were reviewing a movie more f’d up than fun in ballonland(let me guess it’s Santa and the ice cream bunny isin’t it)!!

I can’t even….

I had no idea it could be this unprofessional, poorly acted, full of bizarre misinformation, and padded with stilted dialogue.

When you see of the tree, think of a cross, and when you see the cross, think of a blanket, and when you see a blanket, think of murderous 4th century St Nicholas, and when you see murderous 4th century St Nicholas…

This isn’t anything like any Christian tradition I’ve ever seen…It’s this new weird Mel Gibson/persecution/hyper-commercialistic political Christianity.

I am frightened.

It truly is a “So Bad It’s Good” Christian movie. The kind I have always wanted. XD

FUCK YEAH! Ever since watching the Midnight Screening reviews of this film, I’ve been dying to see more about it! Cross trees, here I come!

Considering how the film seems to be all-show, no-tell, it looks like the right wing nut job Christmas version of my least favorite movie: An Alan Smithee Film: Burn, Hollywood, Burn. So on that angle, I don’t think I’d enjoy it on a so-bad-it’s-good level.
When it comes to the few people who actually like this drivel UNironically, I think some people are just so happy to have their beliefs and opinions expressed through art that they don’t care if the art is any good!

I think you accurately summed up all Christian media made in this century.

‘Course, there are people out there who are of the opinion that being religious either causes or results from being literally mentally deficient. I don’t take that position, but the kinds of media that gets popular in those circles makes a damn good case for it.

The only thing more painful than white people with no rhythym dancing is wannabe “kewl” trendy white Christians trying to dance and failing to sneak “subtle” religious poses like praying into the routine.

I was wondering last year if you were gonna review this stinker of a Christmas movie, …but BEFORE THANKSGIVING. Also, that Christmas getup is about a funny as Zack from Saved By the Bell as “Vanilla Ice’s bitch.” 1:56- And that’s ANOTHER reason why Ben Carson will Never be President: he has a really bad taste in movies. 2:27- Sure, let one of the crazies from Duck Dynasty review movies. 6:05- (Cough)Iron Man 3. (Cough)Guardians of the Galaxy. (Cough)Ant-Man. (Cough)Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. 8:25- Uncle Bill looks like a Mall Santa who’s doing this as… Read more »

04:45 Technically thats true since most of the traditions associated with Christmas are taken from other holidays from different cultures. Christmas trees for instance are based on heathen western European traditions of taking branches of pines inside the house in order to keep nature alive. So yeah, what Kirk likes about Christmas has actually dick to do with it. 05:12 As Brad said the concept of drinking chocolate came from the Aztecs who drank grinded chocolate in hot water as part of ceremonies. Their non-Christian ceremonies. Another thing wich, according to American Christians, is not appropriate at all. I’m like… Read more »

I distinctly remember the marketing for this film. It was billed as Kirk taking aim at the “war on Christmas”. And then the only reference to it is from the crazy conspiracy theorist characters. So we can add “false advertising” onto the list of offenses. Both to its target audience β€” who won’t actually notice or care because they’re so brain-damaged that they probably think those two guys are supposed to be right β€” and to anyone who went to see this because they expected it to be a hilarious train wreck, which… it kind of still is? But not… Read more »

This reminds me of something I recently saw on the Bookshelf at the local World’s Largest Retailer, a book called “The Real Force: A Forty Day Devotional”.

Allegedly its a book that “skillfully reveal the deep biblical ideals represented by the characters of the epic Star Wars saga.”….?!?!?!

And here I thought that George stole mainly from Buddhist teachings for the Jedi and such 9_9

Then again, that would explain how Baby Jesus escaped Herod: “This is not the Messiah you’re looking for” ^_^

Why do you dressed-up like this penguin from Food Fight all of the sudden? Do you want to represent materialistic side of the Christmas this way? πŸ˜€

The irony is that there’s absolutely nothing in Christmas that’s actually biblical. Yet these Christians defend it like there’s no tomorrow. Even if there existed a man who the story of Jesus was based on, he was quite certainly not born on 25th of December. The bible itself does not give any clear indication of a birth date, but it can be indirectly deduced that it was much earlier in autumn. There is no command or even a recommendation in the bible to celebrate the birth of Jesus. There aren’t even any examples of anybody doing so. This celebration is… Read more »

I don’t know why it needs defending in the first place since everyone is free to celebrate or not celebrate Christmas any way they see fit. I personally don’t see the harm in using it as a day to commemorate the birth of Christ regardless of the details, but if others find that inappropriate they can always choose to either do things differently or just skip it entirely.

Consider the following; 1. No one really cares that its not the same day of the year; Its not celebrating it on the anniversary. Its celebrating it on a day that is convenient for people of various beliefs to celebrate together. 2. There is historical evidence of Pontius Pilate convicting him and whatnot. There very clearly was a guy who went around preaching and people believed was the son of god and whatnot. You’re free to be convinced he wasn’t. 3. Just because they’re not biblical doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate and enjoy them with our friends and family regardless… Read more »

I’d imagine the non-biblical aspects only really pose a problem for people who belong to strict fundamentalist “bible only” churches and/or churches that are trying to distance themselves from Catholicism as much as possible.

Does Kirk Cameron mention that the image of the modern Santa Claus was probably taken from the Old English deity Woden (also known as Odin)

Chicken Puppet
Guest
Technically no… The truly modern incarnation of “Santa Claus” was the creation of commercial artist and political cartoonist Thomas Nast, who died around the turn of the 20th century. Before that it was mashup of various European folk heroes and St Nicholas himself. Nast was of German American descent, so the legends of Kris Kringle probably weighed heavily on his influences. This certainly does not discount the bearded Odin being a possible part of the bigger picture that influenced Santa Claus imagery through history, but it’s likely the actual St. Nicholas (who may or may not have been impressively bearded)… Read more »

Funny how punching Arias somehow got turned into a Kill Bill beatdown. Pretty sure there’s nothing in that folklore (and yes, it’s folklore, not a confirmed event) about trying to beat Arius to death. He just wanted him to shut the hell up… you know, like lots of people would if they had to deal with a pompous ass like Arius. And apparently Kirk hasn’t heard that a good chunk of Santa’s mythic DNA did come from Nicholas of Myra… who probably didn’t wander through snowy woods, due to being in what is now Turkey… but another chunk came from… Read more »

Fucking Rasputin Claus!! D:

The way that Kirk spoke condescendingly to the brother-in-law, especially after he states that Jesus wasn’t really born on the 25th of December. “Mm hm, mm hm, mm hm. So tell me then, when WAS he born?” Seriously??

As long as Kirk makes shit up, as long as he pulls it out of his ass with authority and applies it to his “faith,” then it’s totes okay. Oh man, I seriously want to see his version of world history & reenactments of bible stories. And the fucking crocoduck.

This film will forever offend everyone and I think every person in the whole wide world would agree that it is a truly pathetic loser bad film even including and I quote “The groups of the worst human enemies who would of seen this film would find something to agree with on equal terms of common humanity.” This film is so shitty-bad that I can imagine Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin and Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Chruchill and Benito Mussolini and Charles De Gaulle and the former Emperor of Japan and former Yuogslavian Tito would watching this movie from… Read more »

This movie should offend of all Christianity Non-sectarian and even sectarian or just be made fun of, any Pope in the 1500 years of history (Papal States of Rome and the modern Vatican) would agree with me, By the way I would like to randomly mention that the Dominican Order of St Dominic De Guzman formed in the 1200’s still exists today in the Vatican suburb or enclave of Rome, Italy notoriously known as Domini Canes or Hounds of the Lord.

“The true meaning of Christmas is….BLANKETS!” Thank you, movie, for explaining this to me. πŸ˜€

I am now officially offended in the name of:

All Christians

Druids

The Universe
Jewish people, a.k.a. me

Dang it, Kirk. I used to have a platonic crush on you when I was eight! You, Luke Skywalker, and River Phoenix! WHEN DID WE GROW APART? *sobs* πŸ™

But Brad really rocks that Santa outfit.
