Brad Jones portrays The Cinema Snob, a pretentious film snob who is stuck with reviewing Z-Grade exploitation flicks of the past. I'm a big guy. For you.

  1. The funny thing about the whole “the cross is a tree” thing is that that makes the ‘pagan’ connection even closer because Odin got hung up from Yggdrasil for several days as a price to gain some sort of knowledge. Um… HAHA!

    • I believe it was that Odin sacrificed himself TO himself. Which, in the trinitarian view of Christianity, is what Jesus did.

      From wikipedia…

      “In a sacrifice to himself, the highest of the gods, he was hanged from the world tree Yggdrasil for nine days and nights, pierced by his own spear, in order to learn the wisdom that would give him power in the nine worlds.”

      Sacrificed to himself, and pierced by a spear. Admittedly, this version post-dates Christianity, and it’s the only source for the myth I can find, so it was most likely inspired by Christianity, and not the other way around.

    • i thought he gave up his eye

  2. Where did the speck come from?

    Short answer: We don’t know yet. The Big Bang is how far back we can “look” before we no longer have any information we can find.

    From what I hear though Laurence Krauss has an interesting book on this called “A Universe from Nothing” that goes into greater detail on the origins of matter and energy. I haven’t read it, so I couldn’t vouch for how well it really explains it, but I would figure that is a good start.

    But the whole laws of thermodynamics and physics, frankly they break down when you get to the quantum level.

  3. ByTheSideOfWriting

    I really want to see this movie after watching all three reviews, but I can’t find it in theaters and it looks like the pirates don’t want anything to do with it. It’s just not meant to be.

  4. Kirk Cameron presents A Very Number 23 Christmas.
