In Which Something Finally Dawns On The Hoard Potato  
You know, there's something both tacky and amusing about DC Comics wrapping up their big, year-long crossover about Death and Resurrection just in time for Easter.

Yes indeed. }:>

I'm just gonna wait until the 17th, when it shows up on BBC America.

...two more weeks??

The only problem I have with doing that is the fact that BBCA cuts stuff out to make time for commercials. You don't get that problem with the downloaded-from-UK-source version.

And trying to avoid spoilers for two weeks is harder for me than just downloading the [CENSORED]ing thing.

Far as I can tell, they restore it for the On Demand version.

And it's a better story than the one in the Bible!
Your Obedient Serpentathelind on April 4th, 2010 07:56 pm (UTC)
I dunno. That's a pretty good story, and it makes a helluva movie in the right hands.

It's the FANBOYS I can't stand.

Oh, trust me, after writing Simon Peter I can confidently say that it stinks. But it DOES have the best propaganda in the world. ;)

It works better with Andrew Lloyd Weber lyrics!

I'm pretty sure that wasn't in the Bible, though. Much of the peripheral work to the Gospels is quite good - Ben Hur! - but the actual story as written in the Bible is just a narrative and literary mess.

But wouldn't Willem DaFoe make a great Sinestro?

Well, sure, it's a mess. But, you know, just because, say, the tales of King Arthur are a mishmash of unrelated legends and folktales that were all thrown together doesn't mean that you can't get a good STORY out of'em.

I mean, it's not like this is some kind of gospel written in stone or something!

That's nihilistic, though. Any story could be told in a good way. Someone might take Scientology's mythology and do something really interesting with it some day, but that effort will be done only because of the propaganda inherent in the religion - which is how it is with the Passion. It's a poorly told, confusing story whose moral relevance is specious. That someone has taken this ten pound load shoved into a five pound sack and done some cool things with it doesn't change that the source material is bogus!

Oh, Madame Blavatsky and various pulp SF writers told MUCH better stories with that mythology before Hubbard got his claws on it.

Oh, sure, and I like the story of Mithras better than Jesus. But that's beside the point! The story, as presented in the Bible, is a mess. A boring, confusing, immoral mess.
