I like this tidbit its very telling why protestants can’t make a good religious movie.
"If I had had a hand in the making of “The Passion of the Christ,” I would have dropped all mysticism, and based it purely on Scripture."
Uh some of the most moving parts were the mysticism Mr Movie by Sola Scriptura who could forget the dialoge between Jesus and Satan. The Marian flashbacks of Jesus as a boy falling and as a carpenter. Mary visitng Jesus in prision when she is above Jesus chained and somehow knows exactly where he is. Mary Magadelene and Mary soaking up Jesus blood with cloths. And of course the much talked about Satan and ugly baby scene. Jesus cross being turned upsided down yet it does not hit the ground and Jesus is protected. Jesus carrying the cross and telling her I make all things new. Something not found in any of the Gospels but in the Book of Revelation. Even when Mel used scripture it didn’t have to go according to plan as Mr Sola Scriptura director Comfort would have had it. Kirk Cameron as Jesus ahh the horror. It would be funny though.
These are the touches that made the movie unpredicatable in places even though you knew the basic storyline this is why you pay your $10. Really am I going to pay $10 to watch Ray Comfort direct Kirk Cameron as Jesus in a 25 minute Sola Scriptura word for word last day of Jesus? WIth not mystical suprises just the words of Jesus, I don’t think so.
Also he gives this backhanded compliment to catholic filmakers.
You may be aware that Hollywood has produced a blockbuster movie centered on the things of God. You may also know that it was directed and produced by a Roman Catholic. While the film was based on Scripture, it contained a number of scenes that cannot be corroborated by the Bible. The movie I am referring to is the ever-popular Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments,” staring Charlton Heston. Mr. DeMille was a Roman Catholic,
ahh we direct all the religious classics hey we got Capra and Hitchcock as well something about the catholic imagination. Hey maybe its about thinking outiside sola scriptura that make catholics great artist whether is be the celluloid, sculpture or painting.
