God’s Not Dead (2014) – Dare Daniel Podcast Rerun 2

“Is God dead?  Better listen to the episode and find out.”

It’s a New Year, but an old episode.  Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell are still recovering from the holidays, so they posted this rerun of Dare Daniel’s most popular episode of 2019.  Back in May, Daniel and Corky reviewed God’s Not Dead (2014), the inspiring story of a baby-faced fascist who slaughters through atheist strawmen like an evangelical John Wick.

The hosts will be back in two weeks to review the film’s even more misbegotten sequel, God’s Not Dead 2.  Until that deuce drops, enjoy this replay of the Dare Daniel review of God’s Not Dead.

This week’s Darer: Mike Dub

Why did Mike Dub dare Daniel and Corky to watch God’s Not Dead (2014)?  “I don’t know if this movie will be the outright worst you’ve watched, at least not in terms of fundamental cinematographic ineptitude.  It sounds like it would be tough to top, say, Theodore Rex in that sense.  But I do think God’s Not Dead has a good chance of being up there with the most grating and frustrating movies you’ve watched.  I hope it’s as torturous as I think it will be.”

IMDB synopsis: “College philosophy professor Mr. Radisson’s curriculum is challenged by his new student, Josh, who believes God exists.”
