That’s the interesting picture there. Thought I’d start right out with it.
The first interesting link is from Fred Clark at Slacktivist. The reviews for the new Left Behind movie are pouring in, and they are all negative. You never saw such a critical bomb. But then, it couldn’t be otherwise. Yes, by all accounts the acting was weak and the special effects were Nineties-vintage CGI. But even if that had not been the case, this movie could never have been good. The source material is just too awful to make into anything good. As Fred puts it, “You can’t make chicken soup out of chicken poop.”
It’s not simply a case of a bad book. Good movies have been made out of bad books before (and vice versa – far more often, vice versa). The problem is that the plot of Left Behind cannot move forward if people behave like human beings. This supposed prophecy cannot happen if the world is anything like ours.
Fred explains it more completely in:
The next link is much lighter, and really needs no explanation:
