  • This is but a hand full of movies I can recommend. I'm disappointedthat the film didn't name freemasonry as the driving force to the establishment of the anticlerical/church laws. The local theatre only ran the movie for one week. So if someones interested in watching the film at the  theatre, they would have to do it quickly.

  • It was awesome.

    The general Enrique Gorostieta gave a few short speeches about freedom (being an atheist liberal that's expected), but it's pretty easy to ignore because there are plenty of martyrdoms throughout the movie, and it really drives home what the Cristero movement is truly about; the Catholic Faith. At the end, Gorostieta converts and makes his confession before going to his death.

    And I though it was SO ironic that in the movie Gorostieta refuses an AGREEMENT offered by Calles, negotiated by Rome, which is of course a deadly compromise.

    And contrary to what I expected, they made Fr.Vega look like an okay guy with some rough edges. They definitely didn't exploit the Train Burning incident. They actually made it look like it was an accident.

    There was only one bad part though - where the women have to smuggle ammunition, they're shown in their bras and bloomers for a few seconds. So that's the only part a guy would have to look away.

    In spite of that, I'd still encourage you to go see it.

  • My apologies. This movie deals with the Cristeros, a large group of the catholic faithful in Mexico in 1926 to defend their right to attend the holy sacrifice of the alter in church when the anti-catholic freemasonry government closed the churches. Many were martyred for the faith. Their rallying cry was "Viva  Christo Rey". Deo gratias.

  • Everyone here in Spokane at Mount St. Michael are talking about this movie, encouraging each other to go see it, support it.  It is rated "R" for the violence, but that is what martyrdom is.  

    I haven't seen it yet, but so many here have seen it, I agree we as Catholics should all support a good Catholic movie when one does come around.

  • If it comes out of Jewish Hollywood, there is some trick involved.  I know people always think that this time, "we" really have a film of our own, but there is always a trick.  

    I haven't seen it and won't see it, but it probably pushes religious liberty and American concepts.  Also, most people who see it will be Novus Ordo-ites who are probably heretics.  They will come out feeling righteous.  If they are martyred, they will be like Protestant "martyrs," many of them.

    See, the devil doesn't care if you say you are a Christian, so long as you really aren't.  He isn't afraid of giving the Church a little publicity, once it's no longer a threat to him and people have remade it in their own image.  In the same way, he released the Latin Mass in VII -- once he had wiped out the priesthood.  

    To me, it is depressing to see a film celebrating a Catholic revolution when there are about 20 people left alive who even know what real Catholicism is.  To me this film is just part of the vast conspiracy of silence.  It will make Novus Ordo-ites feel all safe and warm, being happy that the evil commies haven't taken THEIR church ( oh, but they have ).  But that's just me.

    As important as the Cristero revolution is, it is totally insignificant compared to what's happening now which is the spiritual blindness of billions; but about that, the media is silent.

    Sorry if this is too dismal for people to stomach.  I assure you, when the Great Monarch comes and the power of the devil is wiped out, I will be a lot happier.  But I'm not happy with meaningless scraps that have no purpose except to make me pat myself on the back and feel righteous.  I guess it's a glass half-full, glass half-empty thing.

    It doesn't. It's an excellent film that expresses many traditional ideas. You should see it before pronouncing judgment on it.

    The holy martyrdom of the faithful is never insignificant.

    Go watch the movie, and THEN you can come back here and BS.

    Raoul76, I have not seen this movie, but I know a hardcore, deontological Sede who loves the movie. The appeal is not only to Bogus Ordites, in fact, I have only heard of traditional Catholics talk about it. Granted, I do not converse with Conciliarists much, nor do I frequent their sites often.

  • Raoul76, this movie doesn't come out of Jewish Hollywood or any other part of Hollywood.  I'd love to have you see this & THEN give us your opinion.  I saw it yesterday & it's one good movie with great acting.  You owe it to yourself to see it.  I'd say it's more for trads than NO's as it's a real Catholic movie.  Honest.

  • I have several Trad friends who have seen it and they're all excited about
    the fact that a really Catholic movie can be in the theaters. One couple said
    that the theater they went to was entirely empty, except for them. It was
    like having a private screening.

    Sounds like a tragedy from a profits standpoint, but maybe the word gets out slowly?

    Better promotional work could have helped?
