Direct quote from today's (July the 2nd) IMDB headlines:

"Mel Gibson has performed a spectacular U-turn
over his controversial movie about Jesus Christ's
last hours - he's decided to include subtitles after
all. Gibson shocked Hollywood after announcing
The Passion, which stars Jim Caviezel as Jesus
and Monica Bellucci as Mary Magdalene, would
be shot  in Aramaic language without the aid of
subtitles - but now a Christian focus group invited
to a screening of the film insists it has too many
subtitles. One viewer tells American website The
Scoop, "I don't know if Mel was ever serious about
not having any subtitles. If he was, he has moved
beyond that now. The version I saw actually had too
many subtitles. We don't need distracting translations
flashing on the screen when the Roman soldiers are
saying obvious things like, 'Hey, you, move!' Mel
noted that they  were going to eliminate some of the
subtitles in future edits." Meanwhile, those lucky enough
to catch the rough screening rave about The Passion -
 and dismiss accusations it is anti-Semitic.
 Another viewer tells The Scoop, "The Passion is a
stunning work of art. It is a devout act of worship from
Mel and his collaborators. Let's get the controversy
out of the way right at the top. The film is faithful to the
Gospel, particularly St. John. It is no more anti-Semitic
than is the Gospel."

Sorry about the weird text formatting.


Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
