Mock the Movie: Oh, Hercules Edition

Yes, we’re doing it. We’re going to watch God’s Not Dead. Why not? We’re (most of us) atheists. We’re (all of us) masochists. What else would we do? Aside from hide under our beds rather than watch this movie, that is.

How could you, Kevin Sorbo?

This one is available on Netflix.

“This sounds awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, it does. “This must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:

  1. Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
  2. Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
  3. Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM. Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
  4. Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.

If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.

If you’ve missed a mocking, you can catch transcripts and even subtitle files for later watching on the Mock the Movie archive.

    The Christian mother of one of the members of CFI Ottawa had been pestering him to see this movie for some time, so a few months ago about a dozen of us got together at my place to watch it. We had popcorn to eat and rolled up balls of newspaper to throw at the TV. The paper balls were an immense help to get through the ordeal without either excessive stress or damage to the TV or other aspects of my living room (though my cats were still finding them for a few weeks after). Hope everyone has as much fun as we did!

    God’s not dead. He is hibernating, just like Santa in the Finn horror comedy “Rare Imports”

    When he wakes up, he tends to go on a rampage until he has consumed enough flesh to make up for the energy lost during hibernation, just like grizzlies. That is why there are never any living eye witnesses to the “zombie phase” of divine resurrection. Smart prophets keep away from gods until they have regained their usual body weight.
    The whole “divine cracker + wine” thing was a failed attempt to provide sustenance from followers through teleportation during periods of hibernation. In reality essential nutritients are missing, so re-enacting the last supper in church with wine and crackers only gives god a vicious hangover.
