  • I'm glad to hear it's still in production. Mel is a great director, so I have no doubts this will be outstanding.

  • I am thankful to Mel for providing all of those images ( From the Passion) to ponder while praying the Sorrowful mysteries- it has helped me a lot. Those images are what I visualize- its automatic now

  • As you note, The Passion was a meditation of the Sorrowful Mysteries. The Resurrection will similarly be a reflection on those mysteries. I hope that Mel lives and works long enough to do the Joyful Mysteries.

    Same.  Although the Resurrection apparently just deals with the First Glorious Mystery, or actually, the time between His death on the cross and His Resurrection.  I'd love to see him get through them all in this movie.

    I must say, however, that I did not care for his casting of the Jєωess to play the part of Our Lady.  I didn't like her or her looks ... so that put me off quite a bit.

    Her looks were very off-putting, yes, probably an appeal to the Protestant crowd that wouldn't believe that Our Lady would still look young and beautiful in her middle age. But I still think she gave a great performance as the Blessed Virgin. Kind of like his switch of Our Lord crushing the head of the serpent in Gethsemane, rather than Our Lady (although I still love the image regardless).


    I honestly think the best casting, thus far, of Our Lady was Olivia Hussey in Jesus of Nazareth:

    It's the same for me. Especially the agony and the scourging, there's very few images of the scourging that can compare to what Mel filmed there. And the meeting of Mary and Jesus on the Way of the Cross makes me cry everytime:

    I agree with the Olivia Hussey casting.

    Morgenstein's (deliberate misspelling) performance was OK, but (and this is the fault of the writing) I absolutely detested that flashback scene (in your clip) where Our Lord as a Young Child fell going up some stairs, and she started frantically flailing her arms in panic and freaking out.  Our Blessed Mother absolutely never behaved in that manner.  You'd have thought the Lord had gotten run over by a mule rather than gently fallen (from a height of about 2 feet) onto a pile of straw.  Nor would she have hesitated for a single moment to go console Her Son, as is depicted in this scene.  St. John is having to practically plead with her to go, but she freezes.  When they finally meet, it's indeed very moving, but the stuff leading up to that should have been edited out of the movie as unbecoming of Our Blessed Mother.

    Very true. The flashback is cringy no matter how you look at it. Honestly, its the last 30 seconds or so that get me anyway when He says "Behold I make things new"

    Same.  When He says that, it's very moving.

  • I don't know why he left out the scene of the Temple guards et al immediately being cast frozen and held to the ground just before they took the Lord into custody.  That was a magnificent show of power and, of course, a miracle.

    I never thought of that.  Perhaps she hesitated because she questioned whether she should get involved in the Passion.  

    As for the casting, I wonder whether Mel chose that actress to contrast with the woman he chose for Mary Magdeline who was absolutely beautiful and yet a huge sinner.  Having said that, Olivia is still my favorite as well.

  • It's admittedly been years since watching the flashback/Christ meets Mother scene, so maybe I don't remember the visuals all that well, but I always found it a wonderful scene. The Virgin is the perfect Mother and cannot but be moved with sincere compassion at her Child's most insignificant pain. 
    "Be kind; do not seek the malicious satisfaction of having discovered an additional enemy to the Church... And, above all, be scrupulously truthful. To all, friends and foes alike, give that serious attention which does not misrepresent any opinion, does not distort any statement, does not mutilate any quotation. We need not fear to serve the cause of Christ less efficiently by putting on His spirit". (Vermeersch, 1913).

    Feeling grief over the torture and execution of God Who took your own flesh and blood for His own is the most ordered expression of sorrow imaginable. So I don't ultimately see anything wrong with it, as cheesy as the flashbacks are.

  • The kikes are going to plant something against Mel Gibson to make sure this movie doesn't get released. A "DUI", "antisemitic remarks". 

    They hate the Passion because the Jєωs know they are the most responsible for the biggest crime of all time.
    Hold fast to the Holy Catholic faith -- never will God let a faithful soul falter.
