Sorry for posting so many times, but I gotta quote this:

"Note: I said the film is the most violent I have ever seen. It will probably be the most violent you have ever seen. This is not a criticism but an observation; the film is unsuitable for younger viewers, but works powerfully for those who can endure it. The MPAA's R rating is definitive proof that the organization either will never give the NC-17 rating for violence alone, or was intimidated by the subject matter. If it had been anyone other than Jesus up on that cross, I have a feeling that NC-17 would have been automatic."

That is great review -- thanks for the link! It's the most truly objective meditation on the film I've seen so far. Very cool.

I think I'm gonna read the Gospels again. Just because that's one of the biggest parts Mel keeps bragging about -- his Biblical accuracy. (On a side note, I'm probably going to end up not going just on the basis of everyone repeating that "everyone should see it" thing. I've heard that so many times at this point -- it's starting to get on my nerves. But that's just my Taurean obstinence kicking in. )

Why is that annoying?  It is about Jesus.  You should want to go no matter what (though I suppose I'm not to say what you should or should not do).  Mel's accuracy is actual the most accurate you'll probably find!  I already looked.

Oh yes!  I know...it was great how he did that.  Like with the flashbacks and all!  I'm glad someone agrees with me! *high fives*

Lurve you Ray. 

Zoe, I saw the movie yesterday, and church this morning was such a different experience for me.

As for the accuracy, the movie is extremely accurate. I liked how Mel combined all of the Gospel's last words.

And the flashbacks were so great. I loved the table scene, it was so sweet.

So, those of you that have seen it... what's your take on Satan with the baby? My mom has one idea, I'm not sure if I agree with it.

I'm pretty sure I know what Rhoda means but at the risk of putting words into her mouth, I'll just say I agree with her.

I don't like it when people say, "Go see it! Go see it! The movie's great! Go see it!" It just makes me determined not to see it.

That's regardless of religion, because not all of us are Christians you know.

I haven't seen it but I've heard that it was no more graphic then some war movies. Actually some people say they think the crucifixtion could have been more violent...but I'll just have to wait until tomorrow to give my opinion on it

I expected the violence of the whipping and crucifixion. But when the crow plucked that other guys eyes out...wasn't expecting that.

About nightmares, it didn't give me nightmares but i did have some trouble sleeping cuz i kept remembering the faces of those little demons that appeared in the movie, not to mention that nasty looking baby.
That baby was creepy! Nasty, ugly thing.
The devil reminded me of Sinead O'Conner. B/c of the baldness.

Though my friend Matt is trying to psychoanalyze that fact that the devil was a woman. He keeps asking, "What do you think Gibson is hinting at?"
Anybody take psychology?

Yes, very much so. That's exactly it. I've avoided many other things just for the sake of being different, and being difficult. And um... Megs, saying I should want to see it just because it's about Jesus doesn't help either. There are lots of movies about Jesus -- I prefer hearing about what he did for others during his life rather than the bad stuff that happened to him after the Pharisees decided to kill him. (I should probably mention I'm not technically a Christian either. I believe Jesus existed, and I believe in all the good he did and the miracles, but I don't worship him as God. I think of him more like an Angel on Earth, if that makes any sense.)

The actress who plays Satan is Rosalinda Celentano. More info here: http://imdb.com/name/nm0147988/

I think Mel chose her because of her androgyenous qualities. (I've butchered the word...anyone?). We don't know if Satan is a man or a woman, just as God isn't necessarily male. I thought Satan was great in the movie. Very eerie and evil.

i saw the movie yesterday. it was just amazing. very powerful. i cried through two-thirds of it!!

as for the violence, i honestly didn't think it was that bad. i've honestly seen worse in certain movies (Kill Bill anyone?). and this is coming from someone who get very squeemish arouynd all things bloody!

and my take on the whole freaky baby scene is that Satan was mocking Jesus and his pure birth. the baby was almost like an anti-Christ.

My mom thought the Satan/baby thing was Satan showing Jesus that if he chose to be Satan's son, he would be out of harm's way and nutured. I don't know...

Someone said that the baby the devil carries is the personification of evil. it is presented in the innocent image of a child which has been corrupted by the sin in the world. I don't know, I'd have to see it.
