A bit of artistic justice

Lurking on some of my usual movie sites today, I noticed a fun fact that has gone unnoticed by the godless blogosphere. I still haven’t seen Bill Maher’s Religulous; I understand the ACA had a little group movie night when it opened here, which I missed due to being out of town. No one saw …

For those of you still dubious about Ebert…

…he has just delivered unto Ben Stein pwnage for the ages. Some choice tidbits. Hilariously, [Expelled] argues that evolutionists cannot tolerate dissent. If you were to stand up at a “Catholic and mainstream Protestant” debate and express your support of Creationism, you would in most cases be politely listened to. There are few places as …

Judge lifts injunction against Expelled

In an interesting development, U.S. District Judge Sidney Stein (no relation to “Evolution Doesn’t Explain Gravity!” Ben) has ruled that Expelled can use the 15-second clip of John Lennon’s “Imagine” under the fair use doctrine. Over at PT, commenters are pointing out that this isn’t an end to the lawsuit, but it may be moot …

Remember Expelled?

You know, the flop creotard propaganda movie that, after 5 weekends in theaters, has only scraped up a sad $7.5 million? (In a comparable time frame, TBN’s 1999 cheesefest The Omega Code had done $8.2m, and tickets were cheaper then.) Didn’t think so. Well, PZ reports today that the ill-begotten and unlucky movie’s latest misfortune …

PZ Myers on The Non-Prophets

In case you haven’t heard it already, this past Saturday we got a chance to interview PZ Myers, author of the wildly popular Pharyngula blog, on “The Non-Prophets.” The resulting show is here. PZ dropped by at 27:23 in the broadcast, and we got to chat with him for about an hour. Topics we covered …

A nice bit of snark from Ebert

I’m a big fan of Roger Ebert, the famed movie critic who’s been out sick for most of the last year or so undergoing various surgeries. He’s back in the saddle now, while during his absense, most of the reviewing was done by his website editor Jim Emerson, himself a very astute critic. Anyway, in …

Quite possibly the best Ben Stein beatdown I’ve yet read

If it weren’t enough for this moon-faced git to have ended up one of Olbermann’s Worst People in the World, try this on for size. No one has quite dissected what a deeply immoral, cretinous piece of lying filth Ben Stein is like Jeff Dorchen. Beauty. That a man, let alone a Jew, could, without …

Federal injunction against Expelled?

Via Ed Brayton. He does not, for some reason, link to a source. We’ll see if this is real. Addendum: Ed mentions that the ruling is only available online via a pay service, which he why he did not include a link in his article. In his comments section, however, someone has cutpasted it.

She’s done it

If Expelled achieves anything, it will be to make millions of Beatles fans Yoko Ono supporters for the first time in their lives. You just don’t steal music. This is why we call them IDiots, gang.

Expelled performed below original estimate

The weekend actuals are in, and the $3.1 million estimate for Expelled that was holding as of Sunday afternoon has been downgraded to $2.97 million, with the movie coming in 10th rather than 9th place. Anticipating an average second weekend dropoff of 50%-65% (which is what you see with most movies), I don’t think this …
