Going Clear: Scientology vs. Mormonism
How similar are Scientology and Mormonism? What do L Ron Hubbard and Joseph Smith have in common? How about Brigham Young and David Miscavige? And when is a cult not actually a cult? Infants Bob, Glenn, John, Randy, and Scott discuss these questions as they review the recent HBO documentary Going Clear.
Meet The Mormons
Scott, Randy, Matt, Bob and Alison review the smash hit “Meet the Mormons,” the Box Office Phenomenon that sent gentile-America scrambling to the baptismal fonts. In frenzied. Ecstatic. Droves. Cuz you know… at an impressive run-time of 78 min, it was just that good.
And this IoT review is clearly TWICE as good. Cuz, you know, at an even more impressive run-time of 134 min… well, ok… so we like to talk.
Mr Deity and the Mormon Testimony
Brian Dalton (aka “Mr. Deity”) joins Randy, Jake, Scott, and Bob to discuss his newest The Way of the Mister video: The Mormon Testimony (spoiler alert: they are kinda sorta unreliable) and a bunch of other fascinating stuff, too. Enjoy!
The Mountain of the Lord
Tom, Matt, and Randy review the LDS movie “The Mountain of the Lord.”
The movie can be seen online here:
Wounded on the Battlefield
Bob, Matt, and Glenn discuss the infamous BYU-Idaho video “Wounded on the Battlefield”
Noah The Movie and Mormon Circus Acts
Bob is joined by Logan Beaux of PracticallyCulture.com to review the movie Noah. This is followed by a discussion as to whether or not bringing certain types of Mormons (*cough* Mike *cough*) onto the show is a good idea. Glenn stops by to share his $.02 as well.
Teotihuacán: Reflections on Myopia and Cultural Imperialsim
An innocent visit to the pyramids outside of Mexico City turns in to a critique of the Nephite Explorer and a certain example of Missionary xerox-lore.
Ender’s Game & Mormon Success
Bob discusses author Orson Scott Card’s influence on his life, and the concept of “Mormon Success” as he remembers it growing up in the Mormon Church. He is later joined by Logan for a review (don’t worry, spoiler free) of the movie Ender’s Game.
Belief-umentary: Religulous vs. Kumare
The full quorum (Bob, Glenn, Jesse, Matt, Randy, & Tom) gets together to review, discuss, and compare two movies that both try to tackle the topic of organized religion: Religulous and Kumare. They are both available via Netflix streaming, but you don’t need to see either movie to follow the discussion.
Manacled Mormon in Sex Chains
Glenn, Tom, Jesse, and Randy have a panel discussion centered around the movie “Tabloid” which tells the story of an eccentric woman who kidnaps the Mormon missionary of her dreams. They are later joined by Matt to discuss the legal implications of the event.
