The Passion of the Christ II

Today in school we were all forced to take three periods out of our day to go into the auditorium and watch Mel Gibson's big, savior killing, anti-Semitic classic: The Passion of the Christ.

Why was this movie made? You're gonna tell me that there were no better inspirational examples of Jesus' teachings then the portion of his life where he was beaten to death and nailed to a cross? What about when he was curing leprosy and making lunch for everybody? Why not highlight the actual parts of Jesus' life where he was...wait for it.....actually FUCKING TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO LIVE! He wasn't teaching anyone 12 feet up on a cross bleeding to death.

Look, the only reason this movie was a success was because violence sells big time at the box office. This is one of the biggest cases of hypocrisy I've ever heard of. You're telling me that the catholic church wants us to stay away from all violent movies but will actually go out of their fucking way to promote one of the goriest, cringe-inducing movies I've ever seen?

Also, besides the violent scenes where Jesus gets tortured, the movie is pretty fucking boring.(that's right, I said it) Half the movie is just him getting sentenced to death and then after a quick round of whippings that get boring and overplayed after about five minutes(I'm not joking, he literally gets whipped no less then 90 times) you are treated to about a full half hour(maybe even a bit longer) of Jesus carrying his cross. BORING! Then get ready for some of the most cringe-inducing moments in movie history as Jesus gets nails hammered into his hands and feet on a cross, and then after he dies.....that's it. Yup. No Resurrection. No Pentecost. No actual fucking ending.

What a waste of ten bucks. Why would someone want to pay money to go watch Jesus die? Usually when I go to the movies I want to be entertained, not soiled with guilt about my shitty existence. Thanks alot Mel Gibson, you big anti-Semitic homo. "Oh, but he's not anti-Semitic." BULLSHIT! Nobody makes this kind of a movie and then gets drunk and blames the Jews for all the wars in the world without being anti-Semitic, you dumb, ignorant, religious right fucks!
