The Passion of the Christ
Who has seen this movie? I saw it Friday night and it was a powerful film to say the least...makes me look at my life in a whole new persepective...What did you all think of this movie?

can't be bothered with that propaganda ****...

Propaganda? Please explain how this movie is propaganda. It was taken from the Bible, so you think the Bible is propaganda?

I loved the movie....I believe it to be true and it doesn't make me hate Jews, I don't know why anyone would think that. I'm German and Schindlers List didn't make anyone hate me more.

it was great, but only true Christians or those who have studied the faith can deeply appreciate it's meaning.

But you can't argue with an agnostic view, so save your breath.

And the first one to mistake 'agnostic' with 'atheist' gets b*tch slapped!

I am sick and tired of hollacaust movies, it was 60 years ago, move on. It is not like they are the only race who suffered, think about Africans, think about native Americans, think about lost Central and South american civilizations.
I wont be suprised if they make a high budget hollocaust movie next year just to shadow "Passion".
It is a great movie, not a propaganda, (you cant change the reality Floyd_turbo) eventhough I am a muslim, I am deeply touched. Only a holly person could bare such tortures and it is sad jews denied his holliness after all.

I saw it and was extremely touched by it. I want to see it again, but I think I'll wait a bit. Anyone who calls themselves Christian should see it. Gibson has managed to bring all the denominations together and thats pretty cool stuff!
03-29-2004, 08:30 AM #13
I got to admit, I had a couple tears too
03-29-2004, 08:33 AM #14
Saw it for the second time last night and it was just as intense as the first time.
03-29-2004, 11:44 AM #15
I absoutly loved the movie. It was the most inspiring and touching thing that I have ever witnessed. I don't see how you couldn't help but cry.
03-29-2004, 11:52 AM #16
ya it is a great movie, go see it no matter what religion you are
03-29-2004, 12:43 PM #17
It was emotional to say the least, I cried a lot. As a person of faith I have always heard about the death of Christ, so it kind of lost its meaning. Now its shown to me in a whole new light. Loved the movie!

Great movie... if it is Mels last then **** what a way to go out. This is a classic !!! Dont see how you could'nt like it ... well... unless you are one of those that told the story another way
03-29-2004, 02:03 PM #19
I havn't seen it yet, cause i heard its in subtitles.. It sounds like its a pretty decent flick..
03-29-2004, 02:27 PM #20

Here's something I read, it was written by some Rhoads Scholar...
It was something to the effect of, either Jesus was a terrible person or he was God.
God- Did wonderful things, performed miracles, preached peace and gave
much wonderful advice, Died for our Sins
If only Man- Told lies after lies, misled millions of people, was insane or delusional. Some Jews say Jesus was a good man, but not God. If He wasn't God, then He couldn't be good because of that.

Great post everybody. I am glad to see that others were touched and some of you wept. I hope that everyone that sees it has a lasting impression that isn't so quick to fade away. Jesus Christ was sent here by God and was His ONE AND ONLY SON... he was sent here to endure the pain and suffering put upon him, so that we may come to have everlasting life. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, and whosoever believe in Him, shall not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE" John 3:16
This movie was INCREDIBLE and it touched my heart. I wept a little the first time I saw it. The second time I saw it was with my girlfriend's Church, and at the end, the pastor got up and spoke about the sacrifice Jesus made for us and he started crying, good Lord, I lost it, I REALLY wept then - it was the MOST POWERFUL film EVER...
GO SEE IT.. PLEASE!

I read the book . . . it's just a work of fiction, nothing more. I saw clips of the flick on TV, and as I don't get off on gratuitous violence, I ain't gonna see it.
Instead, I watched a couple of Groucho Marx flicks. I'm sure I had a better time . . .

okay..........well, you are entitled to your opinion.

True . . .
I've thrashed out the "Reason vs. Religion" arguement with lots of folks before, and it always comes down to religious notions are based on faith.
I have no problems with that; in fact, in this life of misery, grief, and woe, anything that helps a fellow make it through from one end to the other, or anything that brings comfort in time of trouble, is a good thing.
What ain't a good thing, though, is when one group of people try to make other groups of people conform to their religious ideas. When I see those kind of religious nuts, I take a sordid pleasure in disassembling the Book they base their obnoxiousness upon, and I like to think I do a pretty good job at it.
Religion is like sexual orientation in that regard . . . everyone is entitled to their own, but they don't need to be pushing it off on other disinterested people.

havent see it yet
great point tock

I don't think all jews are aggressive at all. Back in that time everything was very violent and that is how it all went down. Chrisitans killed lots of people as well. I am a christian but I would never consider one race more aggressive or evil than another..and the movie never made me think twice about that.
03-31-2004, 09:32 PM #31
i read the bible and i know the story no need to see it

I find it amusing to hear Christians who can't talk about the film without preaching.
I enjoyed the film. Very powerful, like others mentioned. It's worth watching for the torture scene alone. That was brutal. Very well made.

So did you LIKE to see Jesus beaten to close to death?

Just seen it tonight, thumbs up! Great movie although I gotta say it's not what I expected, I thought there would be a lot more of the teachings of Jesus, but after reading through the official website www.thepassionofthechrist.com I understand it now. The movie depicts the last 12 hours of Jesus' life before crusifiction. I wanted to reach through the screen and give a beating to those Romans soldiers!! MAN!! I thought the movie was very good although the beating of the Son of God was just too much, I had to fight back the tears. I think in a movie like this NOT to cry or feel like crying is LESS than human! I am sure the Roman barbarians and Jews that tortured and crucified him are still in Purgatory!! (at least I hope they still are). I actually prefer The Last Temptation of Christ starring Willam Dafoe as Jesus if you're old enough you'll remember the controversy this movie provoked. This movie had a lot more of the teachings of Jesus. The Passion of the Christ is a very good movie and for all you disrespecting idiots out there making immature wisecracks about the movie Shame on YOU!

Good post Panabolic! Also, good job BURNING TOCKS @SS, SUPERHUMAN! ITS ABOUT TIME SOMEBODY GOT HIM!!!!!!

On a side note...
When you guys are talking about the movie and someone says:
"Jesus is the son of God"
"it was great, but only true Christians or those who have studied the faith can deeply appreciate it's meaning."
You are inviting people like Tock to dispel your statements and cause a bunch of crap in the thread.
Try at least come off neutral and objectively. I'll admit Tock was out of line when he said the bible was fiction but he did say:
"Religion is like sexual orientation in that regard . . . everyone is entitled to their own, but they don't need to be pushing it off on other disinterested people."
So lets all be a happy family.
Remember there is two things you should never discuss with another man: religion and politics.
Now that I've said that I would like to hijack the religion thread and say GO LEAFS GO!

It was an awe-inspiring movie. It showed how "human" our lord was that he was tempted at times to give it all up just to escape the pain. There were especially beautiful scenes like when Mary had a flashback of Jesus falling as a child and comparing it to his fall with the cross. What is also great is that this movie was not sanitized as mel intended it to be. Such a beautiful movie for all times and all cultures. Bravo Mel this one is a masterpiece!
