Now I don't mind that since I see the lunacy just like Bill sees it, but this type of "documentary" can really turn people off who could've been brought to understand with a less arrogant "I don't but atleast I know that I don't know unlike this putz" approach.
    The Root of All Evil: The God Delusion is a much better and more organized documentary if you are looking for a criticism of organized religion. Its much better in almost every aspect, I recommend it if you like Religulous.

          My Favorite book of all time. I actually plan on getting a scene from it done as a half sleeve whenever the stupid Marine Corps changes their tattoo policy

          • Dev Patel wouldn't be considered the lead?

            • He could, but precursor nominations have been leaning Supporting, most notably the Screen Actors Guild. Thats where he and Winslet (for Reader) both might not get nominated. Votes will be split on whether their roles will be lead or supporting.

              But the Slumdog love is so utterly out of control at this point, so he has a good shot at getting in. Its a very good movie, but neither Patel nor Pinto should even be considered for an Oscar Nomination imo.

              • I'm always curious about the criterion for lead vs. supporting. Is there any basic verbal formula or is it something you have to pick up from precedent?

                • A lot of Precursor stuff such as the Screen Actors Guild are forced to nominate the person in the category that is campaigned for them by the studio and movie.

                  The Oscars are different though. Their voters can put a person in whichever category they feel they belong.
