  1. My workplace had an event for this where you could buy discount tickets for it at work. For some unimaginable reason, I turned them down.

  2. I’m beginning to think Satan had influence over this movie or might be the real creator behind this animated feature if he exists at all, to awkwardly confuse people of this bible cartoon’s target demographic and as confusing mess of a present to his rivals or enemies in Heaven.

  3. The A.V. Club’s Ignatiy Vishnevetsky criticized The Star as a “rote cartoon feature” existing for purely commercial reasons: “…even the kid-friendliest, Sunday-school-iest kind of religious art can’t spring from religion alone; it needs artistry, too. Otherwise, you end up with a generic product aimed at a market segment who’ll buy anything as long as it seems sufficiently churchy.”[23] From Wikipedia, plus I want to have this journalist film critic or reviewer’s job, da Vishnevetsky because I’m Russian too, and he’s only four years older than me so yeah I do envy him.

  4. I wish I didn’t have to live in Chicago just to be a genuine film reviewer.

  5. And what about Chanukah? Even if this country was mostly founded by Christians, what about freaking Chanukah!?
