Boring Introduction To Myself
As you may have noticed, I'm a new blog critic. My weblog is here for those who are interested. My About Me page can be found here. My posts at this website will be almost entirely on movies and books. I don't listen to music; when I do decide to listen to something it is generally talk radio. I hope to maintain a one book a week review-average, because my new year's resolution was to read 52 books this year. Plus, it is the section of this site that is given the least attention. The frequency may vary due to lots of homework, a few days off school, or any number of other things. I watch a fair amount of DVD’s, and I will also review those. I believe I can offer up a somewhat more unique perspective than some others since I'm younger, but who knows. Anyway, on with the review!
Review of The Passion of The Christ
I went to see the Passion of The Christ yesterday with my family, have thought a fair amount about it, and I'm finally ready to review it. I've already made an attempt to dispel certain complaints lodged against the movie: That it is anti-Semitic; The torture couldn't have been lived through; and the most common response: The movie is a nice fiction, but all religions are really the same. After all there is no heaven or hell.
The movie was very realistic, with a gruesome detail never left out, but above all it was accurate to what the Bible says. Gibson has produced an artistic masterpiece. If you see it, and instead of wishing to become a Christian or crying profusely, you wish to harm a Jew it was not the movie's fault, you are an anti-Semite. When I saw it I became angry. Not at Jews, but at the sick people that were beating him well cruelly laughing. But as I noted on my website they were forgiven, not as some would say because God wanted them to do it, or because it was destined, but instead because Christ asked his father in heaven to forgive them, for they know not what they were doing.
