    Ooh thanks. Just like the time someone ruined Titanic for me.

    I hear the book is better.

    Anyway, isn't this just a prequel to the musical Book of Mormon?
    The consistent factor of all of your dissatisfying relationships and failures is you.

    The TV ads for this are the same footage from recent Bible 'mini-series'. Slick cost savings/marketing. Jimmy Falon said there are many complaining that Jesus in the film (the actor) is too good looking to portray Jesus.

    Jesus himself responded "whhhat?"

    I am like that...I don't do crazy **** or whatever, but when I find myself in situations like that I have an internal "WWDD*" dialogue with myself....

    You are deaf, right? How do you 'experience' the movies? Do you lip read the characters? What if something is said off screen? Is there some kind of 'device for the hearing impaired' at the movies? Just curious.

    Seems to me that's exactly what Jesus was. He just didn't get them all - he was showing us how to get them.

    Sure about the sh*tty pants, but if this miracle worker claimed to be the Son of God, come to save and redeem mankind. What makes you think we'd act any different then the people of Jesus' day did?

    We have more access to toilet paper, we'd have MSNBC claiming this 'Jesus' dude is a hoax made up by FOX, etc.

    The movie was subtitled for the deaf church I tagged along with. Normally, movies aren't subtitled on the screen itself...and we have glasses where we see subtitles. For off screen sounds...we get stuff like, "[Car Door Opens]" or "[Knock On Door]"...and etc.... Some movies don't do it...but you can figure it out because you have seen hearing people turn their heads in response to sounds all of your life.

    That's my gripe...the people in the movie didn't react properly...and I believe that they all shat their pants back in the day and would do so even today. I mean when we see David Copperfield do some crazy ****...we're all lilke, "Awesome, I wonder how he did that..." because we know it's fake. It would be completely different if Copperfield came out and said, "I am the son of god"...he would be subjected to ridicule and everyone and their grandma would set out to prove that he was fake...and after being unable to explain it...they would then accept that it's for real. I mean resurrecting someone from the dead? In the movie, everyone was like, "Hallelujah!" and moved seamlessly to the next scene....bull****...you have to be floored by something like that and unable to speak or even move...IMO.
