I finally broke down - "The Passion"

So I did it. Tonight, I saw The Passion of the Christ, directed by Mel Gibson.

Let's have a little Interview:
  • How many times was Jesus hit in the course of this movie?
    247, give or take (I lost count a couple of times). That also includes Jesus getting spit on. That averages out to one whack on Jesus every 30 seconds.
  • Who should see The Passion?
    Sadists. I was originally going to add Christians to that list, but then I realized The Passion is basically violation of the second commandment, and probably three or four hundred other places in the bible, just like everything is.
  • Are any of the characters hot?
    Even if they are, you couldn't tell. Maybe Jesus is hot (as a heterosexual man, I can't tell), but the blood is probably a turn-off for a lot of women.
  • Any notable actors?
    The only one I asked was the actress who played "Persephone" in Matrix 2 and 3. She played some chick that hung around with Mary a lot.
  • What's up with having subtitles instead of having the actors speak English?
    I don't know. The movie was boring, so I was kind of happy there were subtitles. Gave me something to do.
  • How violent is The Passion?
    Quite. As I said before, 30 seconds in between beats, though that counts ones where you only hear it. I would say about 50 of the hits are actually on-screen, without cutting away or being at an angle where you can't see the actual impact.
  • What's the point of The Passion?
    Good question. I'm assuming it's to guilt Christians into being more believing. Something like that. Maybe they're trying to convert people.
  • Is The Passion actually anti-semetic?
    It certainly blames the death of Jesus on a group of Jews, if that's what you're asking.
  • Is there anything good about this movie?
    Are you a sadist?
  • No.
    Then there's nothing good for you.
  • Thanks for your time.
    The pleasure was all mine.

Seriously, I would be much harsher on it than you were. But who wants to piss off a bunch of Christians with a blood lust?

I see no stinking sig! Do you see a stinking sig?

Passion just fits this time perfectly.

Now that Jesus' preachings about peacefulness and turning the other cheek and all that Hippie-Jazz aren't really fashionable it gives people something else to believe in and at the same time helps them justify their own brutality.

Me even being an atheist/agnostic i liked the movie. Dont look it at a religious perspective. Great actors, violence, plot, theme. It had everything a decent rated "R" movie has.

Alex Jones: Do you want the puppet on the right or the puppet on the left? What a bunch of garbage; liberal democrat, conservative, republican. It's all there to control you! Two sides of the same coin. Two management teams bidding for control, the CEO job of Slavery, Incorporated! The truth is out there in front of you, but they lay out this buffet of lies. I'm sick of it, and I'm not going to take a bite out of it, do you got me?

I still refuse to watch it...I just don't see any reason why I should...I'm not exactly a religious person, and I don't really like wasting my money on movies for the hell of it, even if it is popular...

Meh...

Maybe Jesus returns and goes Postal on the wider community in the middle east, but they "forgot" to put that in the bible. They picked up just after he was done and he floated back to his dad.

Plot? It had a crappy plot! Theme? Please. I will say the acting and cinematography was top-notch, though.

Exactly. It's like saying "The g Factor" (a psychometric textbook that says stuff like "To estimate their g loading, each of the twelve ECT variables was correlated with the subject's score on the highly g-loaded Raven SPM.") has a good story.

It's nonfiction, or, it's supposed to be nonfiction.

How could there be a sequal though? Isn't jesus going to Gods right hand the end of the bible?
Maybe they'd do a pre-sequal or something.
I can't see the movie its classified 18 here and I'm only 15, wouldn't mind seeing it.

This "Jesus Christ" character is so over-rated...There's a biography on him, and now because of his popular movie, everyone's talking about him! Millions of people even worhsip him!

I wonder if he's rich or won an award or something...
