Everyone's talking about the Oscars...  
But guess what I saw? :D

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST!

And you know what?

I LIKED IT! :P Yeah, yeah... I know I'm not "supposed" to, but I am so sick of people going "Eww, OMGWTF Jesus Christ=Western religion=+3H B4D MU+H4FUXX0R5." Sick of it! Because it was a good movie. Not a subtle movie, by any stretch of the imagination, but then I'm not really sure it's possible to make a subtle movie about Christ.

Honestly? I knew it was going to be the kind of movie that would get my panties in a happy twist and leave me geeking over various details like any respectable Harry Potter fan does over details of the upcoming PoA movie. Approximately two hours of graphic violence, religion, dead languages, and Jim Caviezel (J.C.) ... really, it's my kind of movie. And not just me, apparently, seeing as the two o'clock showing we intended to go to was sold out before we got there, and four-thirty showing we did go to ended up being sold out as well. In Kent. Amazing. Also, someone brought their extremely young like four or five years old I swear children. To a movie that is about the torture and execution of the major figure of Western religion. I mean, we're talking buckets o' blood. (Lew asked whether it was more violent than Re-Animator. The answer? YES. There is no comparison.) And no English dialogue. Poor kids, seriously. They had to be either bored or scared out of their wits.

Also, Satan apparently looks like Voldemort. :D Hey, Mel, way to go and tie it in with a modern reference. >__> </ sarcasm>

But no, really, I liked it. I also saw THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE, which should have won over Finding Nemo, dammit. That was a seriously awesome, amazing, [insert praise here] movie. Not even just animated movie, but movie movie. Amazing. For anyone who likes good and unusual and witty story-telling.

XD "... the triplets subsist entirely on frog and frog by-products..." The world needs more movies like that.

ETA: And people, please. The Passion of THE Christ. Get the title right before bashing it, mmkay?

Well, I have to admit it took an awful lot of whining... :D

For some reason, since you've said that, I feel like it'd be even better if it was 'The Passion of TEH Christ.'

/dorkiness.

Now that you mention it, I really think that would have taken the movie to a whole new level of amazing.

Oooh!! I REALLY want to see Triplets of Belleville. I watched the oscars in its entirety last night, and the live performance of "Bellville Rendez-vois" blew me away. I've been searching for an mp3 all day.

I miss napster. -_-

OOH! And I saw you on 2draw. We should collab sometime. ^___^

Triplets of Belleville is an amazing movie. I don't know how many times I can say that before it starts to feel annoyingly redundant. I was really, really super-impressed and recommend it to all. ("Belleville Rendez-vois" is such and addictive song too... now I feel like I need to find it.)

We should collab! Heh, that'd be fun. I used to do stuff on oekakicentral all the time until they became weird and deleted almost everyone's accounts. *whine* So, yeah, now I'm trying to get back into the online drawing groooooooove. Ehehehe.

Can you blame them? First it was "The Passion", then it was "The Passion of Christ", then it was back to just "Passion" again and now it's "The Passion of the Christ". Talk about confusing people XD;.

Other than that, right on. I haven't seen it yet, but I find it so annoying that everybody freaks out so much about this movie. It's just a movie! And it's not like everything that's Christian is poopoo whereas a movie about Buddha or Krishna or whatever is so kewl. I think it's all fine and it's still only a movie.

True, true, very true. But I do kind of expect people to be able to read what's on the movie posters... plus, I like that extra "the" so much.

But, yeah... what you said about Christianity v. the rest of the world's religions in media.
