I watched The Passion last night. I was absolutely amazed at how bad it was. I mean that. AFter hearing all the hype, I was really expecting something good. I thought it was bad. I thought it was poorly done, over done in terms of graphic effect. I thought the camerawork was less than stellar. And I thought the whole language deal was absolutely ridiculous. I thought parts of it were just unbelievable (such as Christ standing beside Pilate with no struggle just hours after being beat silly ... Why wasn't he at least struggling to stand up?). And what in the world was Mary wiping up the blood off the ground for? There were parts like that seemed just stupid ... for lack of a better word. Now that most of you have had time to digest it, do you still think it was good, great, so so? How has your opinion changed over time? If you have seen it more than once, how did the subsequent times compare to the first time? In terms of effect, has it had any real lasting effect? To me, it seems like the flavor of the month for a bit, but quickly died out.
