I did right after writing my post, actually.
on 2/27/04 at 09:47 AM
basically on the same page then
on 2/27/04 at 09:48 AM
I just looked at a few reviews, I'm surprised how many of us there are.
on 2/27/04 at 09:19 AM
That's quite an entry.
on 2/27/04 at 09:23 AM
by the way, how am I supposed to take this? it really could go either way.
on 2/27/04 at 09:31 AM
This is a problem that happens far too often. It is what it is. :)
on 2/27/04 at 09:33 AM
I'd normally take it as a compliment, but, with this movie being so goshdarn divisive, I'm assuming the worst. :o
on 2/27/04 at 10:29 AM
I think its a bit sad that people give opinions before even seeing the movie. Doesn't bode well for credibility...
on 2/27/04 at 11:47 AM
I, in no way, dislike the film because it doesn't correspond with my personal beliefs. I don't like it because it doesn't work as a film.
Personally, I think it's a bit sad that people give opinions before even reading posts. Doesn't bode well for credibility...

Very nice, but I did read the posts. I was not remarking about you but Coffee, and now Little Irish, who are offering opinions without seeing it. Do you not see a bit of a problem with that?

respond to them, then.
and in fairness, I think Coffee is remarking upon my great writing style, which is totally awesome, not my opinion of the film.
on 2/27/04 at 12:28 PM
I can have opinions on anything before seeing it, I do not say it is a bad film etc, but if you read it, I say, going from past experience with Mel Gibson and how he spoon feeds.
Same as every morning when I cross the road, I understand now it is not good just to run across with my eyes closed, like I used to before they put me on that ward. You know, having a clue about how things have turned out in the past is not a bad way of planning your day. I will still see the film, I have doubts about

Thank you, bub. I [i]was[/i] commenting on afghan's writing style and the sheer length of his entry. Thank you for not jumping to conclusions.
on 2/27/04 at 10:58 AM
I haven't seen it yet afghans, but my fears are, being spoon-fed my emotions by Mel, cue [b]horror[/b], cue [b]disgust[/b] bla bla, I've trusted him in the past, but like all men he lets you down, bastard. Seems that is the sort of film you felt you got. I have to go and see it or scopel is going to do me some harm, so we'll see. I usually agree with your take on films, so it doesn't look good.
on 2/27/04 at 11:48 AM
with all the money he put into the film, he could have at least found a decent director. has scopel posted about it yet? I'm curious to read his take.

My mother thinks I should go see this movie. It's going to take more than that to save my soul, especially since I've heard from basically everyone who isn't a Jesus freak that it's just not a very good film. I think I'll just stick to church once a year and my little nightly prayers.
on 2/27/04 at 11:49 AM
hee hee. see [b]The Last Temptation Of Christ[/b] if you must watch a film depicting the death of Christ.
on 2/27/04 at 11:57 AM
What I'd like to see is a good movie about Jesus's life. I have a sensitive stomach, you see.
on 2/27/04 at 11:54 AM
The Last Temptation Of Christ has so many flaws with it according to the Gospels.
on 2/27/04 at 11:57 AM
true, it isn't actually based on the Bible.
where are all of you people coming from?
on 2/27/04 at 12:08 PM
They come with Ratty, she made some odd friends in the LoTR forum. I hear singing, I think they are hobbits.
I liked Jesus of Naz :o, I have it on DVD :o. Oh and The Life of Brian.
TLToC, was a great movie, I didn't see it for years for fear of being struck down or molested by our priest.
on 2/27/04 at 12:12 PM
They do not follow me. And they aren't hobbits because hobbits don't believe in going to church. It cuts in to eating and drinking time.

"room left for masturbatory eccentricity", coincidental phrase, or freudian slip?
on 2/27/04 at 01:19 PM
you masturbate a lot. gah!
on 2/27/04 at 03:03 PM
not as much as he'd like - damn parents!
on 2/27/04 at 03:04 PM
what an odd little hornet's nest you've disturbed here tuts
on 2/27/04 at 03:23 PM
People always seem to say, "If someone had gone in not knowing the story of Jesus they'd be lost."
Yet, I don't think I've met one person who doesn't know of the story.

Maybe in America or any part of the western world, what about beyond that?
As a catholic, well ex one, I'm up to my teeth in passion plays, but to someone who has never seen one, why not try and include them with some of the story, especially as it is a film and not a religious teaching. It wouldn't hurt to do this, would it?
on 2/27/04 at 06:34 PM
Well, it is an American movie...
on 2/28/04 at 01:05 AM
it's my belief that a movie should stand alone, just because it's an adaptation of a very wellknown piece of literature, I don't think the rules should be bent for it.
on 2/28/04 at 08:23 AM
Yeah, that's true...you know Jesus wasn't right?
on 2/27/04 at 05:38 PM
but i have seen people who didn't know who some of the characters were and were confused by them
on 2/28/04 at 01:19 AM
I was confused by many things that were left unexplained during Lord of the Rings. Does that make it poor filmmaking?
on 2/28/04 at 01:54 AM
not in your case
on 2/28/04 at 08:32 AM
since it's in English and everyone is white, some of the themes may not apply to those in India... yes, it's poor filmmaking.
I mean, obviously.
on 2/28/04 at 08:26 AM
Wow, have you upset someone lately or what?? Shame they don't use their real name to have such a swing.
on 3/02/04 at 09:00 AM
Could this possibly be your most popular entry yet?? Praise be to Jesus, who made this all possible.
And for what it's worth, I enjoy your writing style very much. If only people would realize it comes from lack of sleep and food rather than artificially stimulating yourself. That, or your brain produces its own crack.
on 3/03/04 at 11:21 AM
I think Mortal Crumpet = Hmmmmmm (guest), he's bitter enough to do it. Keep away from him ghans.

I didn't like it either. At all. When the audience clapped at the end of my screening, I was prepared to nail myself to a cross on behalf of all the non-clappers. "Look what Jesus did for you!" the film cries. "What exactly is that?" I'm compelled to ask.
