Without the violence, why watch the movie?

"But that's how it really happened."

I think I've heard that quote from about 10 different people. I want one of them time machines.

Violence or not, I'm still not crazy about snuff films. I was, however, hoping for a sequel around Easter...
 
2005-02-11 09:19:03 AM  
But I like seeing Jesus bleed for my sins!!!!
 
2005-02-11 09:19:09 AM  
just saw the south park episode "passion of the jew". it was great. i loved how they portrayed mel gibson, as a religiously insane maniac. like he really is.

(quiet, I'm too lazy to HTML it)

I think the jesus chainsaw massacre thing is pretty funny, since gibson apparently had a goregasm during the movie.

Bah, read the book. Movies never capture the essence of a good book.

When you censor the death of Christ, only Christians will enjoy censorship.

...oh, wait...

Aw, whatever will the snuff addicts do?

Ok, so let me get this straight. I'm kinda slow, so I may be missing something.

Mel Gibson releases a movie that immediately captures the hearts and minds of evangelical Christians everywhere because it so perfectly captures the suffering of their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

After watching it (or in some cases even before watching it), said evangelicals get upset because the movie makes the suffering of their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, look, well, too much like suffering.

Mel Gibson, to placate said evangelicals, releases a five-to-six-minute shorter version of said film, titled (without a trace of irony) The Passion Recut. In this version, Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ doesn't suffer quite so much.

There's some disconnect here that I can't quite put my finger on. Isn't "dumbing" down the of Lord and Savior Jesus Christ's suffering a slap to what he's supposed to represent?
 
2005-02-11 09:22:16 AM  
"Jesus Chainsaw Massacre" still makes me chuckle.
 
2005-02-11 09:22:28 AM  
Maybe he'll replace the deleted scenes with some truth. Wait, that won't happen.
 
2005-02-11 09:22:55 AM  
It's ok to make fun of the passion because.. well.. it's a piece of crap. Jesus chainsaw massacre for all!
 
2005-02-11 09:23:49 AM  
If Mel Gibson wasn't using the money to build himself a crazy person church, I wouldn't have such a negative opinion of it.
My dad's church denounced the movie saying it glorified violence and gave off a negative opinion of jews. Go Catholics.
 
2005-02-11 09:24:06 AM  
they should make a jesus chainsaw massacre. he could put the jews faces on his, and run around going "BrrriggaBriggaBrigga" (thats my chainsaw noise) with his mouth.
 
2005-02-11 09:24:19 AM  
When are we going to see the Alternate Ending??
 
2005-02-11 09:24:40 AM  
Um, Okay
cutting 4-7 minutes of that slasher makes it non violent?
HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAH*pant*pant*HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA!!!

The farker just wants to release it before easter so he can buy a 2nd island off of Fiji for his slaves.

Or lots of full-frontal nudity. Who could complain about that?

2005-02-11 09:25:20 AM  
I bet he doesn't even die in this "new" movie.

Pocket Ninja:

Yup.


It also implies Christians are too dumb to understand, and too faint-hearted to watch, a depiction of their faith's fundamental story.

Great cinematography
Excellent sound design
Poor directing
Wooden acting
 
2005-02-11 09:31:56 AM  
Eh, I would do it too. Trim six minutes, release it in theaters again to make another 200 mil from the religisheep. Go home and select from a bounty of sexy naked women to snort cocain off of...

You da man Mad Max!
 
2005-02-11 09:31:58 AM  
Would Christianity be so big today if Jesus lived?

Life of Brian was the only 'realistic' Jesus movie I've ever seen.

Yeeaaahhhh, that's the ticket! And Martin Scorsese can direct it! Err... wha???...

The subtext you're missing in "Passion of the Jew" is the illustration of the fact that Gibson has made a LOT of pseudo-historical gore-dramas, and it's absurd to think he's some kind of monk now that he made one about Jebus.

Unless that's a leper colony he's building . . . . oh saint gibson, can you show us the way?

/Never seen it, will watch it right after 'Pearl Harbor'
 
2005-02-11 09:35:18 AM  
But gory, bloody movies make the baby Jesus cry... especially when it's his ass getting kicked.

Here farkin' here!

/Or is it 'hear hear'?
//Never figured that one out.
 
2005-02-11 09:35:46 AM  
You are missing the point, it will run without the rateing thingy. Meaning you can now legitamatly take your'e 5-8 year old neice/nephew to see the farking thing, and scare teh bejesus out of them. "Timmy, you better be a good boy, we crucified Jesus and he was the son of god, what the hell do you think we are going to do to you, ya little shiat."

I'll say. I saw that movie for the first time at a very impressionable age (11 or so) and it helped form my impressions of what naked ladies were like.

Man, I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered, from later experiences, that the hip-to-hip coverage was not the norm.

/although kids raised on today's online porn will probably be shocked to find any significant coverage in at all in the real thing...

".....I read all about the scourging and the crowning with thorns.... and I could viddy myself helping in and even taking charge of the tolchocking and the nailing in, being dressed in the height of Roman fashion. I didn't so much like the latter part of the book, which is more like all preachy talking than fighting and the old in-out. I liked the parts where these old yahoodies tolchock each other and then drink their Hebrew vino, and getting onto the bed with their wives' handmaidens. That kept me going."

Yay, who wants to see such a vile movie anyway?
 
2005-02-11 09:40:08 AM  
...getting onto the bed with their wives' handmaidens.

What is it with handmaidens? Perhaps the only role in the universe hotter than a french maid.
