Funniest thing I've read today

Over at the head Movie Ubergeek Central (Ain't It Cool News), they have a review of The Nativity Story, which some of you may know is a movie about the birth of Christ.

It's one of the greatest reviews I've ever read.

Here's a sampling:

"This time around Jesus is being pursued by the ancient world version of a Bond villain, simply named Herod, who, knowing of Jesus’s amazingly bad assed ability to take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’ (I mean, really, he’s like Roman era John McClane) that he’s gonna try to kill him before he’s even born."

"Which is exactly why James Cameron is a genius. Everything is better with killer robots. Especially the story of Jesus."

"Um, yeah. As a life long Christian, I’ve got some news for you. Christians? We make pretty shitty movies on the whole, especially when we try to make movies for other Christians... The Christians that are good enough to slip through the cracks seem to be few and far between – kinda like white guys in the NBA."

You can read the rest of the review HERE, but I must say that ANY review that manages a comparison to Ewoks Battle For Endor is all kinds of alright in my book.
