Must be a misprint, how old is the girl?
See The Chronicles of Narnia...the only reason this film did so well was because of all the church youth groups going to see it and what have you.
enjoy a brief break from hype.--Dew
Then I'm glad I didn't watch that film. Odin and Zeus raped women. The Christian God didn't.
Another stupid, ignorant comment.
Actually she does accept God's plan. There was choice involved.
It's a pity you don't know love nor mercy. What a sad soul.
Well, I guess if that many people watched it and paid for it, it does have many qualities, unless you already made up your mind before watching or not watching.
Aghdashloo to play Jesus' aunt in "Nativity"
Tuesday March 21 7:01 AM ET
Shohreh Aghdashloo is in final negotiations to join Keisha Castle-Hughes in "Nativity," which revolves around Virgin Mary before the birth of Christ.
Castle-Hughes ("The Whale Rider") is set as Mary, and Aghdashloo ("House of Sand and Fog") would play her sister Elizabeth, who becomes pregnant with the child that will grow up to be John the Baptist.
The New Line project, to be told with a strong female perspective, will follow Mary and Joseph's life as their love, faith and beliefs are tested. The story incorporates their departure from Nazareth and travel to Bethlehem and includes such biblical figures as King Herod and the three wise men.
Catherine Hardwicke ("thirteen") is directing. Shooting is scheduled to begin May 1 in Morocco and Italy with an eye toward a December 1 release.
Aghdashloo has on deck the features "American Dreamz," "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "The Lake House." On Thursday, she will guest-star on both "Will & Grace" and "ER."
Everyone's personal religious views notwithstanding, may I remind participants in this thread that Christianity is the second largest religion in the world (behind Islam). That means that many Hypesters here may share those Christian beliefs.
That said, let's show a little sensitivity to the feelings of others, okay? Tact goes a long way.
^I must agree. While I'm not the biggest church goer in the world, I do respect other's beliefs, regardless of my agreeing with it or not. I think it's become cool to hate Christianity as of late, and while there are those choice few in every genre and group that like to be idiotic about their cause, the majority are pretty much live and let live.
Remember I told you about my boss at my last job that was an extreme atheist, and she wouldn't tolerate anyone even mentioning anything remotely religious, even in jest, unless they were taking jabs at it.
I watched it, and wondered where was the plot? Aside from a few small scenes- jesus praying in the garden and talking to satan, judas being chased by "devil children" and hanging himself, and then later a scene where jesus invents the table, the entire movie is jesus being tortured and then killed.
If some people liked that, to each his own.
It's really weird how everyone's supposed to "show sensitivity" regarding the beliefs of Christians and Muslims but no one has to show any towards me and my beliefs.
And no one gives 2 ant poos if you mercilessly rip Scientology to shreds all day.
Oh, quit acting like a sissy. Scientology is stupid, anyway. Thetans? Xenu? L. Ron Hubbard even said that if you want to make lots of money to start a religion...
A question for you? Why do you say Christian Mythology?
And how exactly do you know this?
" I doubt it'll be the next Passion unless Mel directs. That's why the Passion did so well. It was more b/c of Mel Gibson than the story."
So you assume everyone who watched this would watch a movie solely because of Mel Gibson.
I'm not acting like a sissy. Unlike paper-skinned Christians and Muslims, I CAN take the verbal abuse from people who think my beliefs are stupid. I just hate double-standards.
No one says, "HEY! Tone it down. Let's respect the fact that Wilhelm believes in the global conspiracy and the 4th dimensional reptilians and stop insulting him."
And you're saying that a woman giving birth without having sex and every species of animal in the whole world all coming to one place and fitting inside a boat for over a month, even though the carnivores had nothing to eat and a magical Devil who is pure evil and yet God allows him into heaven and chats with him and instead of destroying him lets him roam around tormenting and tempting everyone...because he loves us so much, isn't just as ridiculous as Xenu? Hahahaha
trailer looks good actually
I can't believe Im saying this but it actually looks good.
