eraser8: Krymson Tyde: One thing that is confusing though is why do these people speak with British accents?

If I had my way, actors portraying people from the ancient near east, Greece and Rome would speak with Brooklyn accents.

I'm not joking.

Bob_Laublaw: NewportBarGuy: It's a violent book filled with war and incest. I'd say it's right up their alley!

Maybe Ted Nugent is right for the part after all.


I don't remember reading about King David shiatting himself to get out of fighting, but to be fair it has been a while since I read it.

Bob_Laublaw: The actor portraying J-to-the-C looks remarkably...... pale compared to most Middle Eastern folks Link


Stop promoting liberal lies as the truth, you historical revisionist you. Jesus was whiter than the pale lilies on your lawn.

The only time I'd reach for the Washington Times is if I just dropped a massive, Taco Bell fueled dump and I looked over and saw that the toilet paper roll was empty.

FTDA: usernameguy: Did... Did they give Satan a French accent?

That would be hilarious!  "I'm bad, look at me, I give a cigarette to a baby!"


I'm trying to picture the Garden of Eden with Satan played by Pepe Le Pew:

Oh, Eve -- *smooch* mwuah mwuah mwuah -- do not worry about ze apple, mon ami - we shall make beautiful musicks togezzer right here!

If you want something entertaining, read all the Amazon reviews for the David Duchovny/Mimi Rogers film  The Rapture.  It's funny.  Apparently, many Christians just see a title that refers to something they believe is Biblical, and will purchase it sight unseen, without reading reviews or checking ratings.

What makes it funny is that  The Rapture  is a very R-rated movie full of sex and other scandalous things, and really isn't about the fundamentalist rapture myth as much as it is about a Christian cult and Mimi Rogers' tits.

And hooo boy, are the Christians who were "tricked by the title" into seeing this movie mad that they saw boobs and naked bodies and not one scene of atheists dying or being left to suffer after God collects all the people with enough brownie points.

So what I'm getting at, in a roundabout sort of way, is that fundamentalist Christians-- As a movie-watching group-- Are rather naive, and will go see anything that they think will reinforce their religious ideals, because they think to do so will "stick it to the heathens" or somesuch thing.

To test this theory, I plan to make a movie or book titled "Jesus Loved Everybody" and have it be about Jesus being a bisexual gigolo who whored around Jerusalem until he died of the clap during a gangbang with the apostles, Herod, and Santa Claus.

FuryOfFirestorm: The people behind it are Mark Burnett - king of reality show garbage - and his wife Roma Downey, the chick that starred in Touched By An Angel (a show so sugary and corny, it shames HFCS). Quality wasn't touching this with a 10 foot pole.


Off topic, but there was one moment back in the 90's where Angel, Dark Angel and Touched by an Angel all aired at the same time.  THE SAME TIME.  I know.

Of course the Bible confuses Hollywood. A lot of the major players have spent their lives studying the works of L. Ron Hubbard and trying to move up the Bridge to become better Operating Thetans before David Miscavige randomly loses his shiat and tries to choke them out. From what I've been reading in the Lawrence Wright book, a lot of it is an insane, humorless echo chamber, where people like Paul Haggis get ostracized for making a little joke about Scientology to Stephen Spielberg. If Hollywood has a moral cancer eating at it, is its toleration of Scientology.

True... Jesus is actually the reason that White people ARE White. Before Jesus came strolling around, there were no White people. Once he died for our sins, then the truly sin-free people in the world were White, and all varying shades just indicate HOW sin-free your ancestors were.

Of course, this means that gingers are the least-sinning people in history. And pre-history.

sleeps in trees: douchebag/hater: Farking Canuck: sleeps in trees: My son's been watching it.  We aren't religious and every time is try and explain what Christians believe he thought I was messing with him.  I understand why, when you've not been raised with it.  You should have seen his face when Moses parted the Red Sea.   I kind of wish every religion made a movie, so as to better understand them.

Yeah ... from an outside point of view, religious people believe in some whacky shiat.

Yeah... from a religious point of view. atheists believe in some whacy shiat too.

I'm not atheist, but I don't subscribe to a specific religion. I don't know how that is "whacy".


Whacist.

A show about the Bible on the "History Channel" is equivalent to having a show about fire-breathing dragons on "Animal Planet".

maxalt: Almost every movie with low moral standards fails at the box office but is praised by Hollywood elite, while so called wholesome movies succeed. But the movers and shakers in Hollywood consider any movie denouncing God or religion to be avant-garde  and praise the writers producers and such. Used to be when the Jews owed Hollywood they liked sand and sandals movies because they were sure money in the bank. I know times change but people don't, most of the middle of the country and the south are god fearing folk and prefer wholesome entertainment.

I think portraying the Roman Empire like NY Italian mafia thugs would be the most accurate portrayal of ancient history ever devised.
