Well I think you have a point about religious movies. But not for this one, it would make its money back regardless with Ridley Scott directing and Olrando Bloom in his first proper male lead it will make its production costs back regardless of any controversy.
I hear it is not too shabby but a little convoluted and Bloom was probably a bit miscast and maybe not ready for his first big lead...but I will go see it.
Originally posted by blue27 Just another movie in the long list that would have had 3 decent weeks and then disappeared if the religious nuts didn't promote the hell out of it.
When will these people realize that they are defeating their own purpose?
Life of Brian. Last Temptation of Christ. Kingdom of Heaven.
None of these movies would ever see a profit if the religious right didn't protest and tell people not to watch it.
Politics are affected as well.
Just because you Love Jesus doesnt mean you're a "religious nut"
Just because you think it would be good for people to see a movie that shows the horrible things that their savior had to go through doesnt defeat our own purpose. It's called evangelism and many people would like to do it in any shape or form. Since our culture is so media driven, it actually did not have a negative impact as a whole but rather showed the community that if God are for it, then who can be against it that will make it fall?
