The Pain...

I have seen The Passion of the Christ last night. It's actually quite good as a movie. The visuals are really good, the colors are undersaturated at the right moments. Nothing stands out in crowd scenes, etc. Sometimes, it makes you feel like you're watching one of those Christ movies being shown every Holy Week... but better and more believable! The scourging invoked some twitching and unified cursing in the audience. Hehehe! I do hope the director, Mel Gibson, won't continue his plans on doing religious themed movies. It may transform The Passion into something commercial, just another one of those movies... it should stay the way it is... something special and unique. Clearly one of the movies that made an impression in my heart. It makes you feel that whenever you're in pain, physical pain, it is nothing compared to what Jesus has gone through. Shame on you.
