exactly, thanks gunny
I thought that as well
Nope. I'm agnostic. It's just a really tedious movie and really uninteresting to me. A ton of critics and viewer agree with me, many of which are not Catholic.
It was a major hype because the book stirred up a bunch of stuff which riled up the catholic church and got the media coverage.
The movie was exactly the same.
I bet the Catholic church is jumping up and down over it....except it doesnt change the book being a hit.
I guess the closet definition for what I am is agnostic (I just don't got all the answers, it's that simple), but I'd like to see this movie. I like to learn about religions, and it's Tom Hanks! Tom in a sucky movie!?!?!
Oh well, sounds like it'll be out on dvd in a month. But of course Blockbuster will want 6 or 7 bucks too....oh well, it'll come out on HBO in 3 months.
The following is an opinion on film and history, not religion:
First off... keep in mind the book this film is based on is a work of fiction.
Well, I am Roman Catholic and even my very devout mother has an interest in this film. I have been watching some of the hype programming on the History Channel that has been drumming up interest in the movie, but still, to me, the idea that there is a bloodline that is directly decended from Jesus Christ onward is absolute hogwash. I can of course see a bloodline that goes back to David for this is the bloodline Christ is said to be of... but descendants of Christ, with Mary Magdalene??? Please. That has got to be the biggest load of crap I have ever heard. Didn't they make this movie once already... I believe they called it The Last Temptation of Christ...
However, while watching the History Channel I did see an interesting feature on a Christian church in Jerusalem that conducts all of their ceremony in aramaic. They are Merovingian. That is a hot key word to search on...
Merovingian... <-- research that and you will be more confused than you ever were.
Confused about what exactly?
Nice try. Where did I ever say that I was confused?
Gonna see it tonight!
Where did I ever you were confused? You however said that researching the Merovingians "and you will be more confused than you ever were", and I asked about what in particular.
