  1. It got the money precisely because it appealed to non-Christians. It was an actual well-made, dramatic movie rather than just a preaching device. It didn't need to go out of its way to explain itself because the story of the crucifixion is already well known so whatever effort would normally go into that was spent on enhancing the experience itself. Yeah, that may have boiled down to wonton violence but how else are you supposed to convey the cruelty of it all? It's already been done a hundred different ways but the one time someone makes an effort at a no-holds-barred portayal of the death of Jesus and you have a problem with it? Is there something in it being a Christian film supposed to mean they can't take drastic steps to get the point across? You don't have to like it but it's absolutely not hard to see why others do. Sometimes people want a show, not a sermon, and that's exactly what the Passion of the Christ offered. Its message isn't cheapened by this but rather strengthened. It made non-believers pay attention, if only for a moment, and it showed a powerful rendition of one of the most important aspects of the religion for the rest.
  2. There's more than enough movies that focus on Christian teachings. It doesn't hurt to have one that skews in a different direction. The brutality is exactly the point of the movie, to get the viewer to understand what kind of suffering Jesus had to go through, exaggerated or otherwise. It's one thing to be told the story but by showing it in such detail they make an attempt at getting the point to hit closer to home.
  3. Oh hey, I just bought this a couple weeks ago. Saw a few clips and now I have to see it. --- I just finished the new Baki series. I've never seen the original but the new one was amazing. It was so unapologetically brutal. I couldn't help but love how quickly most of the fights were decided.
  4. I only use one at a time on my computer but on my phone I have one for each page of the home screen. I sorted each page to have a purpose so I had an excuse to scroll through them.
  5. The game is pretty different now than when I first played it at release from what I've heard but I thoroughly enjoyed the game. I even got all the trophies in the base game. I'll have to replay it when they finally get the last of the DLC out. --- Meanwhile I finished Toy Story 2 on the PS1. The wait to play the Toy Story world in Kingdom Hearts 3 led me to replay it. I had never gotten 100% in it before so I made sure I did that this time. Didn't even unlock anything, it was just a thing to do.
  6. I've yet to play the game but I read the manhwa it was originally based on. I've always been a little bitter that the creator basically abandoned it a mere ten volumes in to work on Ragnarok Online. He said he would go back to it someday but it's been far too long to hold out hope for that or even if he did if it would be even remotely the same. That said, one of these days I'll still try to check out the Ragnarok Online MMO and anime just to see how it turned out.
  7. I haven't played it yet but it looks like it rides the line between being super realistic and still keeping the game playable, but in a good way. It's part of why I'm interested in it.
  8. Zatch Bell was a pretty creative anime for what it was imo. It got bogged down by the usual shonen issues of being too long for its own good though. Zatch and Kyo were really cool together in spite of Zatch's...weirdness. Megumi and Tia (I think that was their names) didn't show up as much as I'd like though. They were a perfect match for Kyo and Zatch both combat-wise and romantically. Now that I think about it I never did finish the series. I guess I know what I'm watching soon.

      You know this is the second time someone has brought that up because of my username. I had no idea what it was originally. I may have to actually read the book though. It sounds intriguing.

  10. Two weeks until Kingdom Hearts 3. The anticipation might actually kill me. I've been counting the days for a couple weeks now. :laugh:

  11. I always enjoyed math. I've meant to try to relearn some things for the hell of it but I never quite get around to it.
  12. My mom is always on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram. I guess that's a very mom thing to do though.
  13. You absolutely have to have both. Almost never do either look good on their own. Either grow it all or none at all, there is no inbetween.
  14. Eiken purely because it was clear they didn't give two shits about the source material and seemed like they were just making it to make fun of the genre, or maybe anime in general. I'm not saying the manga isn't your standard harem fanfare but it's at least worth reading. I couldn't watch more than the first episode of Attack on Titan. It felt like it immediately threw away it's most interesting aspect, the titans themselves, so they could focus on people drama. I don't know why they thought the anime had to be more than small things killing big things. I liked the overall concept of Blood+ but the fact that fifteen episodes in and it feels like the plot of maybe three episodes stretched out just ruined it entirely. Shattered Angels had a lot of horribly unutilized characters. It wanted to be romance. It wanted to be a mech anime. It wanted to have pretty boys and elegant girls with deep backstories that drew them together. It failed in nearly every aspect. It did have one thing going for it though and that is the overall feel of the anime. It was still...gentle in a way and few anime have replicated that feeling somehow.
  15. @Denim&Venom Speaking of Pantera, Disarmonia Mundi's cover of Mouth For War is to die for.
