  1. Heard Mel's controversial flick is coming out at the end August.

    We'll watch it then.

    Good! I'm anxious for it. I wanted to wait for the privacy of my own home to shed my tears. Thanks for the info!

    We saw it at the theater, but I'm positive we'll be buying the DVD. I know alot of people who took their children to see it - not me. I'm still not sure about letting my kids watch it. I do know that they're more likely to get to see the DVD, just so we can stop it and try to explain things along the way. But, again, they are 6 and 7, so I am still not sure about that.

    I agree, my husband and I saw it at the theater, but I didn't want him taking my "almost" 10 year old daughter to see it in the theater, in case it was too much. I'd probably let her watch it at home, though, since we'd have more control over it if it got to be too much for her. I'd like to see it again, too, at home and alone, so I can sob out loud if and when I need to (I cried during the movie, but held back ). Now, my husband, who teared up at the end of Braveheart when Mel cried out "FREEEEEEDOOOOOOMMMM!" just before they beheaded him got on my case for crying during Passion......so next time I'll watch it alone!! We really enjoyed (if that's the right word) the movie though.

    I agree jkaee~ I was quiet in the theater, but it was a bit much at times. there were several times when I just turned my head from the screen.. it was just so painful to watch. And, I don't know if "enjoy" is the right term for the movie, either. We were both very quiet on the ride home that night.. for those who are believers, it's a movie that will stick with you from now on, and honestly make you reevaluate yourself to a certain extent.

    Ditto. Went to see it in theaters. Saw a friend there who wanted to see it again...would have been his 4th time! The word we decided on that best described the movie was "sobering". I don't think kids would really get it...how many kids want to read their movies? If I had kids, not sure if I would let them see it or not. We'll have to wait several years to find that one out -Andrea

    We'll be getting it as soon as it's out and then hopefully, my husband will watch it. Then, when I am feeling sorry for myself, all I have to do is pop in the movie and I'll be knocked down to where I belong....humbled.

    Yup, seem a bit young for the emotional punch provided.

    Me too! I already knew about what kind of beating He was going to get. In fact, they didn't even show most of it. The scriptures reveal that the cat - o-nine-tails that had a different piece of flesh-tearing instrument on its nine strips of leather, were intended to tear the flesh from the bones, etc. so that part didn't bother me. The message I received from the movie was how much He loved us all. He was willing to do that and more in order to free us all from the sins that Adam and Eve inflicted on us when they ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. As He was drawing His last breath while hanging on the cross, He said, "It is finished." That was when we entered the new covenant, where the laws can now be expanded, and written on our hearts instead.
    So now as the gospels reveal, when a person asked Him, "Master, what are the laws we need to obey?" He replied, "On these two commandments lays the whole law. Love for God and love for neighbor."
