Bad movies

I was vaguely creeped out by the fact that the latest Left Behind movie opened in churches rather than movie theaters. It's not that I am really freaked out by the theocrats (OK, I am,) but I don't think it is great for small d democracy when subcultures remove themselves from our few shared national experiences.

I knew someone who actually planned to read those Left Behind books to better understand the readers of said books. There is something noble in that, but could you stand it? From what I understand the prose makes Robert Jordan look the Bard himself.
