"We have been sold this Islamaphobia, where criticism of the religion gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people," Harris had said. "It's intellectually ridiculous."

Is Ben Affleck Right About Islam?


Ben Affleck Bill Maher

Ben Affleck called out Bill Maher over his “gross, racist, disgusting” ideas about Islam during a heated debate on the presenter’s Real Time show on Friday night. Affleck took time out of promoting his latest movie Gone Girl to appear alongside author Sam Harris, former chair of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele and Nicholas Kristof.

Maher set out his stall early, telling Harris, "You and I have been trying to make the case that liberals need to stand up for liberal principles," Maher said to fellow panelist, author Sam Harris. “Freedom of speech, freedom to practice any religion you want without fear of violence, freedom to leave a religion, equality for women, equality for minorities, including homosexuals, these are liberal principles that liberals applaud for,” Maher continued, “…but then when you say in the Muslim world this is what's lacking, then they get upset.”

In his speech, Affleck defended tolerance and diversity.

Harris expressed his stance on the issue: "We can criticize Christians…but when you want to talk about the treatment of women, homosexuals and free thinkers in the Muslim world, liberals have failed us. The crucial point of confusion is we have been sold this meme of Islamaphobia –where every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people, which is intellectually ridiculous."

Heckler Review


OK
As a critic, one approaches Heckler with a sense of dread. The brainchild of perennial whipping boy Jamie Kennedy -- whose movies are savaged by the press, each one rated worse than the last -- it is a film in which Kennedy gets his chance to fire back at the critics who have hounded him his entire career. At 38 years old, he is now on the Rob Schneider trajectory, destined never to make a critically loved or even artistically interesting film. He makes goofball comedies that appeal to the PG-13 crowd (if that), and for years Kennedy has been unapologetic about that fact.

When one reviews a Kennedy movie, a critic rarely thinks about Kennedy sitting on the other side of that review, reading your comments and perhaps reacting emotionally to them. Who would've thought that, deep inside, Kennedy was the proverbial clown that cried.

Religulous Review


Excellent
Ponder this: Christians and Muslims embrace two competing, ancient fairy tales that both end with the glorious destruction of the world, except for exclusive alternate endings for believers. And the people who currently have the greatest power to destroy the world are Christians and Muslims, whether by nuclear bomb or environmental neglect. Therefore, prophecy is destined to fulfill itself, unless people come to their senses and recognize religion for the poison it is.

Offended? Terrified? Whether you're a Sunday School regular or a godless intellectual, you're certain to find Bill Maher's anti-religion polemic Religulous to be a provocative, brilliant, infuriating documentary. It's one part Bowling for Columbine, one part An Inconvenient Truth, built upon a base of sneering mockery.

Stupidity Review


Good
Stupidity... now there's an idea for a documentary. I gotta say, it's fascinating, and as director Albert Nerenberg points out, in modern society we seem to be surrounded by stupidity of all kinds, all the time. Is society genuinely this inane? Or are we just being too hard on ourselves?

Nerenberg's Stupidity is a frequently fascanating but sometimes wandering work that provides some insight into the nature of dumbness. There's a history lesson here: "Idiot" and "imbecile" have specific IQ levels they correspond to, and "moron" is a whole other thing of its own. Talking heads like Bill Maher and Noam Chomsky describe stupidity in our current culture (with Jackass and George W. Bush taking the brunt of the heat), and some of the intellectual discussion here is fascinating. If nothing less, it makes you think twice when you call someone or something "stupid," because of the loadedness of the term.

Fuck Review


Weak
Everyone says the word "fuck" and to be blunt, Steve Anderson's cussumentary Fuck has stepped in the ring 20 years too late. The F-bomb has lived as the central target of damn-near every organization's attack on language as moral compass. In other words, the word is still being argued about, even though, in the public court, the word's justification has been proven for quite some time.

The focus of his film is to get to the core of why we use the word and why people have a problem with it. Much like the word's intended maelstrom, Anderson's film moves with the focus of an ADD case hopped up on a grande cappuccino, methamphetamine, and Jolt Cola. Through dozens of celebrities, linguists, and politicians, Anderson intends to learn all the fallacies in the word's mythology and its connotations.

Tomcats Review


Grim
The one statement used in defining a film that drives fear and loathing into my heart is invariably "an outlandish comedy." They try in vain to recycle the originality of American Pie, Porky's, Road Trip, or South Park, attempting to meld a T&A gross-out contest with a love story, and they always fail miserably.

Tomcats wins, hands-down, the lowest common denominator award so far this year. It's a trashy, sexist, crude comedy revolving around the values of commitment, honesty, and screwing your friends over for half a million dollars. In the process, it throws us numerous sex partners, Bill Maher playing a thug named Carlos, true love, and an escaping testicle.
