    Season 1 of Penny Dreadful. Love the Victorian Era “gaslight horror” setting and ambience (the series is actually filmed in Dublin, which is a better Victorian London than current London). It has the sensationalist flavor of Penny Dreadfuls, with a lot more character depth.

    I hoped this would be an intellectually challenging documentary. Looks more like a boring strawman apology.

    Uh oh. Sounds like our movie critic is having second thoughts. This a movie challenge for a real critic! Are you going to let boredom and prejudices defeat you?

    I hope not because I'm looking forward to your review. I have immense faith you can do it!

    If the trailer is to be believed, the film's message is: atheists are assholes who secretly hate god for purely emotional reasons, therefore god is real. Am I right?

    I'm guessing it's more the latter part of the argument that you take issue with and would deny. Plenty of evidence to substantiate the asshole claim.

    Anyway, I didn't even want to subject myself to the trailer. The one sentence description from google looked silly enough.

    Sorry, skinnylove.

    I'm not going to disguise the ugliness. There was a dramatic atheist professor in the movie; his hatred was directed towards any principles of god's existence and not towards man.

    I didn't interpret the atheists' hatred towards god (or existence principles) as being purely from an emotional standpoint, therefore god is real or not real. I felt the professor was depicted as a highly intelligent man; I got the impression his lack of faith was due to being (naturally) logical.

    I personally didn't get any pleasure from watching an atheist being depicted in such a harsh manner. By the same token, I don't get any pleasure from watching Christians condemn people when Jesus died for sinners. The god of the Bible is LOVE. Agape love. Some Christians don't understand agape love and yes, that's probably the case for the creators of this movie. That's my impression.

    I've been addicted to a Chinese dating show called If You Are The One for a while now. It airs in my country a few times a week.

    So brutal sometimes.
