War Room

War Room preaches that we have no call to be righteous and judge others, yet the film itself is righteous and judgmental in the extreme.

Homer goes to the googolplex

From Joe Forlano, Danbury, CT:

Okay, to end all the speculations and questions as to what the "googleplex" [actually "googolplex] is, it's the title on the movie theater on "The Simpsons," you know the most influential TV show of all time, or as time magazine called the best show of the century. It is true, not because of the googolplex, but because of all it's lasting impressions on movies and shows made after it, e.g. any Wes Anderson movie, "State and Main," and even "Juno" had its references.

Also if you watch the commentary for the first episode of "The Simpsons" that showed the Googolplex, they explain how they came up with the name.

Here is some more googolplex fun. Playing at the Springfield Googolplex Theatres:

- 22 I'll Fry Your Face III
- 23 The Smell in Room 19
- 24 Space Mutants VI [Bart and Lisa's choice]
- 25 Honey, I Hit a School Bus
- 26 Look Who's Oinking (Rated PG) [Homer's first choice, sold out]
- 27 The Stockholm Affair [Homer and Marge's selection]

BTW, a googol is 10^100; a googolplex is 10^googol, which is an impossibly large (and essentially useless) number. This info is from snpp.com
