  • Episode 236 – Rogue One

    landscape-1460032284-star-wars-rogue-oneThis week, we take a look at the newest addition to the storied Star Wars franchise, Rogue One!  The film has been out for a while now but as is our tradition when we discuss nerdy movies, we spoil the shit out of everything.  If you are anxious to see the movie without spoilers, this is not the podcast for you!  Otherwise, listen on as we discuss our thoughts on this stand alone mission movie and where it ranks compared to other Star Wars films.  At least in our completely arbitrary opinion.


  • Episode 235 – Doctor Strange

    Benedict_Cumberbatch_as_Doctor_StrangeThis week, we are excited to welcome the co-screenwriter of Doctor Strange, C. Robert Cargill, back to Geeks Without God!  With a successful film on screen, Cargill can talk to us about the process of creating the film and some of the choices he and the other creators made to bring Strange to the screen.  It is, sadly, a conversation that only touches on what made the film work (at least for your humble hosts).  Cargill also gets to ask us five questions!


  • Episode 232 – Xmas Movies

    Die-Hard-Christmas-Now-I-Have-a-Machine-Gun-Ho-Ho-Ho-642x362With Christmas just around the corner, we take an episode to discuss our favorite movies about the best secular holiday around!  We know – a lot of people don’t think it is a secular holiday but those of us without religion know that Christmas love everyone, no matter what they believe!  We have a good time talking about the movies we like to watch around this time of year.  If we hit on some of your favorites (or missed one), mention it in the comments!


  • Episode 219 – God’s Not Dead 2

    Gods-Not-Dead-2-SoundtrackThis week, we gather our three good festival friends Tony Miller, Ronn Bauman, and Byron Miller in one room so the six of us can experience the glory that is God is Not Dead 2!  Glory is not a good word to describe the film.  Torture might be a bit more appropriate. It is not even that the film is horribly insulting to atheists (and Christians), either.  It is also badly written, acted, and researched.  Just pretty much all around awful.  You can listen to us describe the excruciating time we spent with the movie which, we hope, will be more entertaining than the movie itself.  Note: DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE FOR YOURSELF.  We would save you that pain.

    After you listen to the podcast, make sure to text this message to all your friends:  God’s not dead but God’s not dead 2 sure as hell tried to kill him.


  • Episode 203 – Civil War

    captain-america-civil-war-02082016This week, we take a spoiler laden look at the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Captain America: Civil War.”  We spend time comparing the film to the original storyline that took place in the comics. We all agree the film is very good but are maybe not quite as excited about it as other parts of the Marvel Universe.  We also all agree there is a wrong answer to the question #teamcap or #teamironman.  What is the wrong answer?  YOU SHOULD ALREADY KNOW!  Also – did we mention there are spoilers a-plenty?


  • Episode 191 – Deadpool

    38876_104This week, we once again take a deep dive into spoiler territory with Deadpool! We cover all the facets of the movie we really enjoyed and make a lot of dirty jokes.  Because when you are talking about Deadpool, you really need to make a few dirty jokes.  ALSO, we announce some information about our upcoming 200th show!  You can come watch us record live onstage with a bunch of special guests.  We’ll probably break the fourth wall all over the place so it makes sense we’d use this episode to announce the big event.


  • Episode 181 – A Star Wars Christmas

    star-wars-the-force-awakens-poster-05_493.0You may have heard about a big geek movie that was released this week.  And no, we aren’t talking about Chipwrecked. You might as well know now that we spoil the ever loving hell out of The Force Awakens.  We’ve warned you here and we’ll warn you again at the beginning of the podcast.  Then we’ll get into it and we will seriously spoil everything!  So if you still haven’t see the film, take a break from our podcast and GO SEE THE MOVIE!  Then come back and listen to the three of us engage in a calm and thoughtful geekgasm about the movie.


  • Episode 168 – God’s Not Dead

    godsnotdeadLast year at this time, we sat down with Ronn Bauman and Tony Miller to record an episode about Dark Dungeons. We had a lot of fun so this year, we brought them back to watch God’s Not Dead, a fundamentalist Christian film that Tim calls fundie porn.  What we had hoped would be good for a few laughs was, instead, a plodding, dull, and predictable film in which everyone who isn’t the right kind of Christian is a horrible person in need of redemption.  It includes a straw-man atheist character played by Kevin Sorbo and a whole lot of bad apologetics.  The podcast is, we hope, entertaining.  Skip the movie.

     


  • Episode 151 – Fury Road

    mad-max-fury-road-tom-hardy-charlize-theron-01This week, we spend some time gushing over Mad Max: Fury Road.  Obviously we spoil the movie pretty significantly.  Not that you can spoil much when the movie is basically a two hour car chase.  Sometimes you just have to admire a nerd film done right and Fury Road is most definitely that.  We also talk about whether or not it is a feminist movie.

  • Episode 127 – Left Behind 2014

    Left-Behind--Nicolas-Cage_article_story_largeLeft Behind has become something of a running gag on our podcast.  Having watched Kirk Cameron’s version of this popular Christian fable and suffered through the atrocious board game, we turned our gaze towards the newest iteration starring Oscar winner Nicholas Cage.  In spite of a considerably higher budget, the film managed to achieve what we thought would be impossible.  It was worse that the first one and possibly worse than the board game.  We watched it so you didn’t have to.  Listen to our pain!
