In plenty of time for your commute home from work, episode 3 starts our second series: Movies that Moved... Someone?  We tortured our brains and eyes for you by watching some seriously dreadful Christian movies; they may have touched the heart of your fundamentalist auntie, but we found them less than moving. 

For our first episode of the series, we watched Christian Mingle (2014), which is essentially a 103 minute commercial for a religious dating website. The movie follows non-Christian (but... actually theist, probably Christian) Gwyneth in her desperate ploy to find a man by signing up with Christian Mingle. Yes, that's both the name of the dating site in real life and the title of the movie. 

Spoiler Alert: We're pretty sure this movie was made by aliens.

But what if my boyfriend really is a robot?! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eOlH-yvGVw
