havent seen it. The year it came out i went to a fundamentalist christian school so it was quite the rage. I wanted to see it for the gore factor... plus it sounded like a cool ocncept... too bad the language thing that everyone thought was so groundbreaking had already been done in older art films like Sebastiane

I saw it and found it very disturbing but it not enough to be scarred for life.
I dont think it needed to be as graphic as it was.It was way to violent!

how can you possibly say you were scarred for life?
you're only about 14, and you won't know for sure till you're about 80

LOL! "Passions" is a little campy isn't it?! Somehow I find myself watching it almost daily!

Actually, I'm 17 1/2, and I don't think I'll EVER forget that SCOURGING. Who could DO that to someone?

Republicans.

Check out what they are/were up to at Gitmo. Did you know they've started putting insects in the inmates' food?


Oh please. While I don't think they should mistreat Gitmo inmates, what they've been doing hardly compares to SCOURGING an innocent man. I mean, not much DOES compare to scourging, it's kind of a category in and of itself.

Also, look at the shit that went on in North Vietnamese POW camps. Makes Gitmo look like a cruise.

I've seen it. It was the only movie that brought my grandparents out to the theaters.

Interestingly, we have absolutely NO CLUE what DID go on in N. Vietnamese POW camps.


Hmm, why don't you ask John McCain about the ropes?

I was scarred for life in that it was perhaps one of the worst, most boring things I have ever seen...

...until I watched it to music. Now it is one of my favorite movies.

I dare any one of you to watch this movie to Bon Jovi's "Bad Medicine" and not laugh. Trust me. Amazing. I give it five stars and two thumbs up.

My school rented out three movie theaters and made my school go see that fucking movie. It was the most boring day of my life. The best part was when a monks cell phone went off during the whipping.

OMG, someone's cell phone went off during the scourging in my theater, too. The lady was right next to me and she answered it and talked for awhile. I wanted to stab myself with a rusted spork. They have warnings at the beginning of the film to turn cell phones off, why doesn't anyone listen?

I put mine on vibrate.


Actually, mine's always on vibrate, so I don't really do anything.

I suggest that the faint of heart stay away from these pictures.


Gotta love right wing and left wing extremists.

You claim to be freedom fighters, point fingers at each other, and then hide and deny your own atrocities.

Especially on topics that, quite frankly, nobody really cares about.

What you should care about, however, is watching The Passion to Bad Medicine.

You shouldn't really make light of it. I mean, it *did* really happen, at least to some extent.

I still make light of that fateful day of March 15, 44 BCE; I still make light of that other thing that happened on April 14, 1865; heck, I even make light of that little fling on December 8, 1980, so why not this as well?

Just do as I say. Whatever did actually happen, I say you can laugh all you want at its imaginary portrayal.

If I were to give you an account of something which happened 60 years (at least) ago, was not deemed very important at the time, and has only been passed on orally since then, would you believe every detail of it? I doubt it, right?

Yet you have no trouble believing details which were not even EXPLICITLY MENTIONED in the gospels, which were written at least 60 years AFTER an occasion that MIGHT have happened, but was only known orally before.


I did not say that it happened EXACTLY like in The Passion, but the man really was scourged and crucified, and that's pretty bad.
