Religulous

IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!!

There I was, enjoying a xmas day with the family when - being the net-hog that I am - I slipped away to check my emails. Whilst I was waiting for my email clients to start up, I though I would quickly do my daily ritual of checking to see if Bill Maher's Religulous had mad it to the web yet...and low and behold, it had!




This is definately my last post until the new year...my xmas gift to my loyal regular visitors. I give you the much anticipated - RELIGULOUS.

ENJOY!!!

Religulous is a 2008 American comedy/documentary film written by and starring political comedian Bill Maher and directed by Larry Charles. According to Maher, the title of the film is a portmanteau derived from the words "religion" and "ridiculous"; the documentary examines and satirizes organized religion and religious belief.





A range of views on the various world religions are explored as Bill Maher travels to numerous religious destinations, such as Jerusalem, the Vatican, and Salt Lake City, interviewing believers from a variety of backgrounds and groups, including Jews for Jesus, Christians, Muslims, former Mormons, Satanists, and Hasidic Jews. He travels to Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park, London and satirically preaches Scientology beliefs.

P.S. - This link will probably go dead pretty fast, watch it while you can!

Yes this is pretty good, but it stops for about an hour after 72 mins. After that hour you can carry on and view it to the end without any further problems.

Thank you for posting this. I live in a small town in Idaho...this would never be shown in theaters here! BTW, why does it stop after 72 minutes?

Yes, it does stop, not after 72 minutes as they claim on the screen which pops up, but after 34 minutes. What they are hoping for is that you like the video so much that you cannot bear the idea of being interrupted, so you will rush to become a subscriber right away and continue watching it.

I was not able to continue after the suggested one hour wait, so I just closed it, started all over again and forwarded the film to the point where it stopped earlier. The rest (another hour) went on without a hitch. It may be possible that I could have done that without one hour the wait... :)

Sorry about the problems with Megavideo. I would recommend that you take whatever measures you need to defeat their time limits.

The only good link I have been able to locate is at Megavideo, but I will replace it as soon as I can find a better one.

Oh man, this documentary sucks big time. I'm an atheist and have nothing against having a bit of fun on behalf of the believers, but Maher is just taking it too far here in terms of not really letting people speak their mind, constantly interrupting, giving false info and not letting people refute it etc. There is a funny moment here and there, but overall it's just really too selective and without any real content.

Educational, funny, and offensive. In other words, a very good movie.

Awesome! Thanks for posting it! In the past couple of days I've seen two great documentaries that have been on the top of my must see list for some time.
